Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot has lent his support to a Montgomery County Council request that the state extend the alcohol delivery and carryout provisions allowed during the COVID-19 emergency. The council made the request, which was signed by all nine councilmembers, in a May 22 letter to Franchot (D) and Gov. Larry Hogan (R).
It's unclear exactly what you've been saying about the national debt, but if you're saying it's a looming crisis that's going to bring the U.S. economy crashing down, or end civilization as we know it, there's a good reason nobody listens to you: That's all nonsense. The great majority of U.S. debt held by the public is basically money that we owe ourselves; paying it doesn't make us poorer, because both the payer and the payee are us. Furthermore, almost all of the public debt is denominated in dollars, and the U.S. has absolute control over the supply of dollars. Finally, what better time to be in debt than when interest rates are practically zero? This is a great time to borrow, not such a great time to save.
The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was formed during WWII in 1942, was dissolved in 1945, and is the precursor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), formed in 1947. During the war, it was essential for espionage, propaganda, subversion, and post-war planning. Wikipedia, while not being "the last word" on this important department, certainly has enough to get you going. One day, I hope to have a conversation about the Office on this thread, but we'll need to get some interested parties first. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.
