Getting into this box is what's best for both of us. During your time in the box, you will learn so much, and yet experience so little. It's a wild ride, my friend, one well worth the time spent...and let's face it, you don't have much to do these days anyway.

Killing the beast.

 There are two kinds of money in the world: your own money, and other peoples' money.

Being able to spend other peoples' money is nice, but it also means that you are much more likely to run out of it.

Like VAWA did.

People are not sure if it'll stay dead or otherwise, but for now, I heave a collective sigh of relief with all you folks in the US of A.

I'm tending to lean towards the latter, though: government largesse is all about other peoples' money, and it's looking like the spigot's beginning to run dry. We can only hope.

I'm leaning towards the idea that the best way to kill the beast is to starve it.

    1. Ayup. I know the other reasons that the Repubs didn't reauthorise it and it's not exactly palatable, but hopefully the spigot running dry will disincentivise it from being redrafted and sent out again.
