One + One = Two (Not Too Wonkish)

After reading one of my rants about the stupidity of policies aiming at a balanced budget, somebody in my Facebook environment, commented by saying: “1 + 1 = 2.” Here's my answer.

Yes, 1+1 = 2.

Now here's an accounting identity from macroeconomics, called the Sectoral Financial Balances (SFB) model:

Domestic Private Balance + Domestic Government Balance + Foreign Balance = 0.

It's like 1 + 1 = 2. But just slightly more "wonkish." Read below the fold...

Leaky Koch Disease

Departments: 

So an insider has unceremoniously dumped a number of internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a Koch front group. And it's a doozy. People are making a fuss over the "controversy" based climate denialism, but that's so obvious, it's not what intrigued me. Read below the fold...

Obama’s denial of Keystone XL tar sands pipeline permit was an easy decision, for now

Can we help them with their request for a list of the top-50 crimes?

Please see this proposed list of demands from Occupy Wall Street.

At the bottom of the list there is a request for help:

NOTE 4: There needs to be a very well researched and concise addendum that contains a list of the top 50 corporate crimes / harmful actions during the past 15 years. This ought to really blow people away and will help increase support both on the ground in DC and in living rooms across America as the story unfolds. We can't assume everyone knows why these demands are necessary. We must demonstrate.

Texas wildfires

It's dry as a tinder box down here after 2+ years of continuous drought. The 35 mph winds on the west (alas, the dry) side of T.S. Lee were too much yesterday and things spun out of control. Fire fighting and emergency resources are stretched mighty thin at the moment. Several new fires cropped up today to join those from yesterday, mostly uncontained at this point. We have friends and family in Bastrop County (just east of Austin) who escaped a 16-mile long fire physically unharmed, but lost their homes and all their belongings other than what they could shove in their cars.

Isn't tritium good for you?

At present our government is conducting a giant experiment in Vermont and Illinois, which I'm betting will eventually demonstrate, "not".

From The Daily Mail:

"Despite the revelations the NRC and industry bosses consider the leaks a public relations problem, not a public health threat. "

Of course.
