Lots of talk today about President Obama's budget and everyone is talking about the fact that the debt is as much as the GDP. But these charts from Doug Ross showing just how bad the budget picture under President Obama really is, should also get news.
As the budget battle gets started in force, the seemingly annual issue of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and National Public Radio gets started. Jill Lawrence, an admitted fan of CPB and NPR, thinks that it is time to phase them out of the federal budget. I couldn't agree more, largely because the reason for CPB and NPR no longer exist. the entities were created at a time when television and radio options were very small. There is no longer a need for it.
Onto something else, there are some doctors who require a man to get his wife's consent to get a vasectomy. Huh? How does that work on a legal basis?
Finally, as a veteran, and one who voted in two elections while in the service, the voting rights of overseas service members and civilians concerns me. Today there was testimony about the Department of Justice's actions to protect (or not protect) the voting rights of our overseas citizens.
