Many thanks to the Alert Reader who sent me the following story about monkeys. I think you’ll agree, it has important lessons for us about how to make changes in Washington.
It seems no one in and around Washington, D.C. — not President Barack Obama, not Congressional Democrats, not Congressional Republicans — is willing to tackle the overriding issue dragging down the United States: Federal spending.
Republicans talk about cutting pennies from the growth of government, and Democrats and their sycophantic media label the cuts as extreme.

President George Washington would have been appalled.
There are agitated protestors from London to Liberia. War rages in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Much of the world is becoming violent, and there is no reason to believe North America is immune to this trend.

Where are the humanitarians where Syria is concerned? The United States, France and Great Britain asked for and received permission from the U.N. to bomb cities loyal to Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, ostensibly to stop the killing of rebels whose military action against the government was being decisively thwarted by Libya’s regular army. Apparently, it’s a humanitarian act to kill some to prevent the killing of others.
