    Stay the course!

    Actually, I have this new theory. It's a conspiracy theory. Ready?

    I think that if we pull out of Iraq, the money that is being generated by government contractors in the greater Metro D.C area and, to a lesser extent, the San Diego and Florida contractors will wash up, the job losses would be significant enough to burst the regional housing bubbles in those areas, bringing down the 20% of new jobs that are related to the housing industry, and destoying the economy.

    Or is that just me?

    The Bush legacy will be war and debt. I'm sure our kids will thank us!
