Politics: it’s for the dogs

Ever notice how is the high use, low cost public utilities (libraries, parks, etc.) that get threatened with the axe first  when budget cuts loom? The growing portion of municipal, state, and national budgets devoted to non-discretionary spending, including entitlements and legacy costs, are (oddly enough) never mentioned.

Why, it’s as if they’re using emotion-driven extortion!

Funny how these dogs seem to nail down the problem better than politicians and pundits:

Then there’s the gold bug Frank, who can’t seem to get any respect. No matter what protection gold ownership offers against the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse, at least Frank can sleep soundly knowing he made a relatively sound investment decision.
