We hope you all had a safe and happy Thanksgiving and did lots of shopping to stimulate the economy over the long weekend.

While we were giving Thanks to our Creator and the Freedoms we enjoy, Julian Assange's ego-driven assault on innocent lives via WikiLeaks was taking place. The Heritage Foundation comments on his document dump and Congressman Peter King is calling for WikiLeaks to be classified by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organization. Let us know what you think in our poll. The Guardian has an article on how Bradley Manning allegedly stole the documents which is very alarming when you consider how easy it was according to Manning.

E. J. McMahon has some more advice for Governor-Elect Cuomo o how to resolve Nassau's fiscal problems.

Using tricks or budgeting maneuvers has only exacerbated what is inevitable. If our elected officials truly understand the financial morass, brace yourselves, for the radio and TV ads will do all that is possible to keep the budget at its present unsustainable level. Need more proof? Read this. Seriously, does New York's Chief Judge live under a rock or just in his own world?

No surprise here as we have blogged about this before. Budget cuts will only make it easier for the black market, of course if they were able to keep a portion of what they collected to pay for the overtime, wouldn't that be a win/win? Letting terrorist profit is the alternative.

Michael Barone writes "Let states go bankrupt" and explains why bailouts for states is not the answer to the inevitable problems.

It will be a good sign that Republicans really get it if Congressman Kingston runs the Appropriations panel.
