Hello again!

The problem with looking at the tax cuts from only one side of the ledger is that you're not addressing the fact that Bush didn't cut spending. so the cuts were an illusion. We're just borrowing the money to pay for them.

If not a repeal of the tax cuts, how do you propose balancing the budget because Bush sure doesn't know how? Or do like borrowing money from the Chinese?

Well, not exactly. You're forgetting the Laffer Curve.

If you cut taxes and tax revenues go up, as they did with the Kennedy, Regan, and Bush tax cuts, then you're not borrowing from the future. Rather, you're moving toward the sweet spot on the Laffer Curve.

Also, keep in mind that the deficits are fairly low.

As to how I'd balance the budget, that will have to be a subject for another day.

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
