After a long personal blogging hiatus, my frustration with the lack of Truth out there finally got to me.
First, I read this:Musharraf imposes emergency rule, and conveniently Pakistan Rounds Up Musharraf's Political Foes.
Yes, 6 years and $10 BILLION later and the Taliban is stronger than ever in Pakistan, their self-proclaimed President decides to quote Abraham Lincoln while suspending the Constitution, and the U.S. is left in the position of condemning him while still cutting him checks.
I should call this blog "Your Tax Dollars at Work."
The reason for the indifference on Pakistan I am sensing among Americans made even more sense after I saw this and this, courtesy of Registan.net.
From the March edition of Time Magazine. Compare the cover of the international issues to the one sold in the U.S. A picture truly is worth a thousand words. When the barbarians reach the gate of America we'll be too busy debating what shape and color our gate should be rather than realize why it's about to be taken from us altogether.
Then, I read this over at Rynoman's blog. Stunned silence.
Thankfully, Greg Mankiw is here to help clear up some truth-twisting on U.S. health care by political candidates in EVERY party. He gives us "the rest of the story" from other economists whose research have been manipulated and misrepresented by EVERY candidate. Every voter should read this article.
The Truth is out there.
