The Congressional Budget Office released its Long-Term Budget Outlook a week ago and came to the same conclusion as in recent past outlooks: Federal spending on entitlements is unsustainable, unless one of three things happen: Massive reductions in benefits; massive tax increases; or both.

By Charles Greene Crossing the Mexico-U.S. border illegally has always been a risky proposition. The entire two thousand-mile stretch separating the two countries is notoriously harsh and desolate.

Eric Holder: Surviving epic failure

Holder

No matter what your take on Eric Holder’s politics or his performance as President Obama’s Attorney General, the man deserves grudging admiration for two qualities: his natural tenaciousness and maverick approach.
