    Maybe ANONYMOUS has hacked the the Forbes site and posted those articles. Most likely explanation. Or, maybe they all had sandwiches on organic rye and ingested ergot.

    @swag I left evernote because they didn’t do inter-note linking which seems like a fundamental feature of the web.

    Don’t Mess With The Debt Ceiling – “Spending Cuts” are lies. almost all the calculations on reduced spending are about spending going up 5% instead of going up 10%. We could balance the budget without a single dollar of spending cuts by putting a hard cap on government spending at the current level. Every single dollar of spending growth in one department would have to be paid for by a hard cut in another department.

    Bracket creep is the way that effective personal income taxes increase over time because inflation pushes people into higher tax brackets. We would raise taxes automatically if we stop enacting tax cuts, credits, and “targetted deductions”
