quote of the day

"The notion that when we are fighting two wars, we're not supposed to consider raising taxes on [the wealthiest 1 percent] is one sign of a country that's no longer serious. Why do so few military hawks acknowledge that if they lack the gumption to ask taxpayers to finance the projection of American military power, we won't be able to project it in the long run?"

- E.J. Dionne on the unsustainable Empire
