Given our proclivity for lobbing Hellfire missiles into wedding parties in Afghanistan, I don't think we should be stomping around like some outraged lion, howling in indignation about Egypt going Rambo on a bunch of Mexican tourists. I think we should be lying in the weeds like an elderly housecat, hoping that no one notices us and starts making a bunch of comparisons.
I was watching a movie last night in which Ronald Reagan was being outraged about "out of comtrol" government spending and a federal deficit of $30 billion. Today we are thrilled, thrilled I tell you, that the current deficit is at the astonishing low mark of $469 billion.
No, folks, that's not the debt; it's the deficit.
