Lack of respect, wrong attitude, failure to obey authority.
Harlan Ellison, L.Q. Jones, Wayne Cruseturner
I wonder how many have seen Don Johnson at this age. Might have to watch it again just for the end.
Could not but agree with the lead post seen today 15 Nov. It's time for the "put up or shut up" speech. And related, as a trifle of fiscal diversion, try punching the buttons on this to see how you do: NY Times: You Fix the Budget
I made everybody mad.

I took the liberty of turning the address above into a link.
I had to laugh when I went there and tried the process myself—it's surprisingly easy to balance the budget if you don't take tax increases for corporations and the wealthy (and some cuts in military spending) off the table!
It almost seems like the tax cuts since the 50s, and particularly since Reagan, are the only budgetary problem we really have!
Thanks, Fred, for your comments, and for the link!
Unfortunately, these exercises (Budget Hero is another example) never seem to take into account the subsequent effect of cuts on the economy and accordingly make it seem childishly easy to eliminate the deficit. In reality, levying tax rises on businesses are more likely to drive them abroad. Slashing spending - such as defence - will result in contractors shutting down and cutting jobs. Less employment - less tax revenues, so next year you'll have to cut further to match the contraction, and it quickly becomes a death spiral.
