: Stark Choices
As the new week began, the US Congressional Budget Office came out with its' long-term Economic Outlook and we commented on it while being "On the Grid" assessing the World today:




Stark choices await the United States in the Out years. The United States is enjoying a reasonably robust recovery that is starting to gather pace ever more. The challenge is to sustain this in the out years and the CBO Projects are worrisome which will add fuel to the debate in both the short term and the long term as some of the President's priorities will be debated such as Free Community College.

The moves for a Post-Obama era is gathering steam. All who are eyeing the Presidency are starting to make their moves. Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have essentially been running for President for the past two years. The Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie just formed his Political Action Committee to begin raising money. In addition, Steve King had his annual "beauty show" of candidates which the leading Conservative organization, Red State supported.

Red State's Supremo, Eric Erickson noted in his daily commentary on the "Iowa Corral" that, ".... this is the most substantive field of Republican contenders since 1980. The number of Governors, Senators, and others who are running gives the GOP a deeper bench than any the Democrats can or will muster. They also agree on most topics and are trying to nuance themselves into unique positions. I appreciate Governor Perry’s desire to paint a vision for the country. I want all the candidates at the Red State Gathering in Atlanta this year not to beat up Obama, but paint their vision for the future. What will the country look like in 2020 as they being re-election..." It is ironic but he then went out to criticize the President for not meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister. It is interesting how they seem to be tone deaf to the realities out of Israel Right now. What was also striking was how one of the stalwarts of Conservatives, the National Review at least turned against Sarah Palin who said she's "seriously considering" running in 2016--along with Donald Trump.

It will be quite a spectacle. It is also of note that the President is not planning to go quietly at all. This is exemplified by the decision to essentially exempt the Arctic National Wildlife Refugee from any Oil Drilling as the Alaska Political Leadership was all up in arms over it. It will be quite a spectacle to be witness to the ensuing months in our Politics.

: Ever So Challenging World....
The World is ever so a challenging place as wars continue to rage on. We have continued our assessment throughout "#Outsiders". Two horrific events underscores how challenged our World is:

1) Ukraine: War rages on. The Rebels have said they intend to expand their borders. It is a full fledged war in the middle of Europe and we are absolutely taken aback at the strength of the rebels as they have launched a fresh offensive. Russians deny it--but if not them, then whom as this from the "Grid" underscores the continued gravity of it all

: Powerful
BBC once again has proven, in my view, the institution that it is as it has launched #BBCDemocracyDay. While working away on the #Outsider Channels, this interview is being shown on BBC World and it is just simply powerful beyond measure:

: Disturbing :-(
The rise of Daesh (or otherwise known as IS/Islamic State/ISIL/etc.) continues to be a challenge. The horrific stories of atrocities is ever so evident--and the plight of the refugees is even more horrific as the entire region continues to be under threat. This released by the Wall Street Journal's Twitter feed is even more disturbing:
