Temporary Debt Ceiling, Delinquents and Giveaways

*A very temporary new debt ceiling. In its last action before shutting down for the Christmas holidays the Senate voted 60-39 on Christmas Eve to raise the U.S. debt ceiling by $240 billion, to a grand total of $12.4 trillion. The new funds won’t last long, however. At the present rate of spending the government will run out of money by mid-February.

*Here’s one way to pay the bills. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reports that some 276,000 current and retired federal employees are in arrears on paying their income taxes. The total owed Uncle Sam by these deadbeats comes to a little more than $3 billion. Among cabinet agencies, the Department of Housing and Urban Development had the highest delinquency rate at just over 4 percent.

Lying Scientists, No Allies, Unfriendly Skies and a Name Change

*Surprise! Those scientists were lying to us. Leaked emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit confirm what many of us have suspected for years—the chief proponents of global warming manipulated the statistics, ostracized anyone who didn’t agree with them and used “tricks” to get the results they wanted. Told that the revealing […]

Drafting Mickey Mouse

We celebrate both the ridiculous and sublime this week—as well as the start of a brand-new year. First, the ridiculous.
