We were very excited this morning when Patience and Fortitude received new wreaths for the season! The lions haven’t worn the winter accessory for nine years, but these wreaths were created so they do not harm their marble. A beloved tradition returns!
Patience and Fortitude hope you’ll stop by to see them in their new finery!
Yay! I missed seeing the wreaths around their necks.
NO CLASSIC DOCTORS IN THE 50TH, THEY SAID

THEY’RE NOT INTERESTED IN ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED BEFORE 2005, THEY SAID
Rule 1: The Doctor always lies. And so does everyone associated with the show. Loved the surprises.
Loved it, loved it, loved it.
We have nothing to fear from the “national debt” but fear itself. Conventional wisdom on the subject is inconsistent with reality, and obscures truly important questions about what we want, rather than what we can afford. Personally, I hate austerity: I don’t dig sadomasochism given a viable alternative. I believe money should work for the public, not chill in coffers. But my position, like all positions on the debt, is about morality, not arithmetic. Beneath the rhetoric of affordability, the question of whether we want to invest in infrastructure and promote full employment is truly a question of values. So, fellow millennials, when you hear someone mourn the “national debt,” focus on what kind of country you want. We don’t need to martyr ourselves for their sake.
America is $17 Trillion in Debt — Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Be Worried (via azspot)
Paying back our debt is not a problem. We could easily raise the tax revenue or nationalize a natural resource like Alaska does with oil. We are too focused on making the ultra rich billionaires into trillionaires all while cutting programs that were promised to people who actually need the opportunities to survive.
America has created a lot of wealth and incentives to retain that wealth. That goal has been achieved. Now we can remove some of the handouts for the rich. Not all, but we have to start somewhere.
