“Present Value of Future Obligations.”

July 29th, 2013 by Bookslinger

When you include “off balance sheet” debts, which essentially are the “present value of future obligations” (mainly Social Security and Medicare, but also military and other federal employee pensions) , the US national debt is closer to 86 trillion.

All other entities, individual or corporate, are required to include “present value of future obligations” in their balance sheets, but governments are not.

Wo unto the liar, for he shall be thrust down to hell. Thrust by whom? The scripture doesn’t say. In God’s thrift, probably by the liar himself. (more…)

Economic Growth is Not a Fundamental Physical Law

July 25th, 2013 by G.

We live in the Age of Entitlement. But the biggest entitlement is neither a government program nor an affect instilled by too many self-esteem programs. The biggest entitlement is the expectation of perpetual economic growth.

History

July 25th, 2013 by Vader

It is sometimes said that the British and American people are still today, in the twenty-first century, indecently obsessed with the Second World War. The reason is not far to seek. We know that here was something which our parents and grandparents did well, in a noble cause …

July 24th, 2013 by G.

This post is the most satisfying explanation of the doctrine of the Trinity that I have found.

The (eternal) community of human beings – in the sense of the eternal relations such as parent-child, ruler-subject, teacher-student, sibling-sibling, which no one can avoid participating in – is a more basic reality than the individual people who conform to it.

It is, unsurprisingly, perfectly cromulent to the restored gospel.

Some Porn Should Be Banned

Words of wisdom, the more impressive for coming from someone with strong libertarian leanings.

Having children can make you grow up, and it can make your politics grow up too.
