That schedule is going to slide for a while. Posts will still appear at about the same frequency but they may show up at any time. When you least expect it...expect it.
MEANWHILE, THE BIG NEWS is the standoff over the federal debt ceiling, in which right wing extremists are willing to throw the economy in the tank in order to protect tax cuts for the rich--while "moderates" seem willing to pretty much cave in to the blackmail.
Paul Krugman argues here that the biggest threat doesn't come from the Whackadoodles of the right but rather from those who appease them in the name of "centrism" and "moderation":
Watching our system deal with the debt ceiling crisis — a wholly self-inflicted crisis, which may nonetheless have disastrous consequences — it’s increasingly obvious that what we’re looking at is the destructive influence of a cult that has really poisoned our political system.
And no, I don’t mean the fanaticism of the right. Well, OK, that too. But my feeling about those people is that they are what they are; you might as well denounce wolves for being carnivores. Crazy is what they do and what they are.
No, the cult that I see as reflecting a true moral failure is the cult of balance, of centrism.
The cult of centrism goes like this: right wing extremists make ludicrous demands. Rather than saying "That is bat sh*t crazy," members of the cult of centrism attempt to meet them halfway, now matter how extreme that is. When that happens, as Krugman argues, there is no penalty for extremism.
That's not the way to deal with bullies. They need to hit the wall sometimes.
