... the memo, titled "Planning Guidance for the FY 2006 Budget," ... In no way should it be interpreted as a final policy decision, or even a planning document, he said.

interesting.

anyway, this was known or should have been known at the time the 2005 budget was released. It's all there in the tables.

The news here, I think, asdf, is the newly found May 19 memo that seems much less tentative (which had been the Bush teams' defense about the apparent hypocrisy of campaigning on increases that were being set up to be reversed...i.e., these are only planning numbers, not directives).

You know, actually incinerating the non-rich would keep the rest of the folks a lot warmer in those winter months, so they could be more alert to fight terrorists. Bring on the sacrifices!

Meh. Erase if possible. I'm not anonymous, but fear the mighty power of google.

Be afraid, mortal. Google's divination powers have told me that you are a "25-year-old New Yorker who regularly posts his thoughts on Live Journal".

Sorry. I guess now my comment needs to be deleted too.

Well, its about time those lucky duckies started carying their own weight!!!

Ah, if the Freepers have a hold of me, I guess I can trust you folks.

Call me crazy, but I like my sacrifices voluntary. I can't think of the word for involuntary sacrifice, but it isn't nice.


On reflection, I take that back. The Aztecs did it all the time. However, asking people to make sacrifices is much more tenable in the long run, I believe, than making sacrifices for people.

"I guess I can trust you folks."

You sure? 'Cuz I can fix it...

Or, if you're talking Aztecs, of the people.

If not for the human costs (and potential national security costs), I'd almost like to see Bush and Congress do it. I've never seen a political party in the US self-destruct: it might be fun to watch.

Even a party as disorganized as the Democratic Party would be able to take back Congress in 2006, and Bush has no-one in his administration to groom as a candidate in 2008.

If it's easy to fix it, Moe, go ahead, but I've largely given up on avoiding Google after that AP story.
