There’s always good reading out there, and I’ve fallen a bit behind, some columns I noted:
Noonan basically says we have to stop shutting down military bases because we never know if we might need them. This is an important concept that I’ve heard before but is probably worth repeating. It may cost a lot to spend money on a military, but it costs a lot more to go to war. Having a big scary military in place reduces your total costs as most opposing states won’t go to war with you.
I am also pessimistic about 06, I think that the GOP has its head sonmewhere in the nether regions of their colons.
