The federal budget
“Democrats are set to adjourn the Senate after three years of not passing a budget and with no plans to avert a fiscal cliff.”
I’d just as soon Congress would adjourn and not come back. If we’ve got by without a budget for two years, we must not need one. As for the fiscal cliff, I predict it won’t be averted, merely ignored. And it might just as well be ignored, because there’s nothing to be done about it that is both politically possible and wise.
On the other hand, if Congress did adjourn forever, then the Congressmen would be around here instead of a thousand miles away. Something to think about.
In other news, journalists think Jesus might have been married because a piece of papyrus the size of a business card quotes Jesus saying “…my wife…”. This obviously trumps the big Book that says Jesus wasn’t married, because that book was written by people who wanted to have a celibate Jesus to imitate. That way they could all not have sex in addition to dying horrible deaths for refusing to renounce the other doctrines they made up. Because Christians are hypocrites and stuff.
