With the economy in shambles, Afghanistan hotter than ever, Stimulus package job numbers inflated, Iran still futzing around with nukes, the health insurance reform bill still tugging at America’s soul, and Michael Bloomberg spending $102 million to be mayor of New York City, it’s no wonder everything feels like it’s out-of-sync and crashing down.

What surprises me isn’t that the White House party crashers met the president, it’s that they didn’t have to pay to do it, or that they aren’t from the SEIU’s leadership. (Video, via John Batchelor, here.)

Crashing the Barricades? – Can you believe people actually lined-up overnight (or in some cases, earlier) to be among the first during early Black Friday hours…for the privilege of buying merchandise?

"When Black Friday comes..."

Dubai, a promise built on a foundation made of sand, began crashing down this week. Why is everyone so shocked?

"Enter Sandman..."

After Big Government detailed a story of investigators crashing San Diego’s ACORN dumpster and dredged-up damning documents, why wouldn’t California’s Attorney General address the matter in a straight-forward manner?

The Portrait of Dorian Brown...

Other notable recent crashes:

It’s really no wonder traditional, mainstream media/journalism is crashing … big-time. (They just don’t get it.) They really don’t.

Apparently, Joe Biden is rather prescient. Way back in 2008, he predicted this crash.

It appears the U.S. dollar is crashing…even lower. This time against the Yen.

It’s not the crash some feared but it’s not a heartwarming tale of immediate recovery that was hoped for, either: “The Federal Reserve has delivered a rather bleak forecast for the U.S. economy, not just in the short-term, but in the medium-term as well. The Fed is predicting that the unemployment rate will be in just below 10 percent at this time next year and in the 6.8 to 7.5 percent range at the end of 2012. In other words, while we may not see a jobless recovery, the Fed thinks we'll experience a slow motion one.” (h/t: Power Line)

Finally, I think Tiger Woods got it wrong today. It’s not “Drive for show and putt for crash.”

A case of bad driving?
