A rational explanation of the GOP budget?

Can anyone point me toward some writing by a smart person in support of the GOP's budget?

Need to create budget for graphic novel

I'm interested in hiring an illustrator to turn a recently completed screenplay into a graphic novel. Any ideas/resources I can use to create a budget for such a project? I'm looking to come up with a ballpark figure which can be fine-tuned later. Where do I start? The story is set in Los Angeles and the desert Southwest. Any suggestions regarding potential illustrators from that part of the world would be appreciated.

I don't want to look too much like The Mom, you know?

Let's assume you are a 50-ish Lady who's wardrobe has diminished lately. What you you wear to a nice summer outdoor wedding when you don't own a lot of formal stuff and want to sharpen up your wardrobe from office-drab anyway? Where can you find these things? What places should you look? Whom should you listen to for advice? In short, what do stylish Over-50 Ladies wear to their various traditional and non family events on a budget? Ideally in New York?

Calorie counter for my wallet

I'd love to get a handle on my money the same way I'm getting a handle on my eating. I've been using Fatsecret and its corresponding Android app for several weeks now to lose weight...and it's working! I think the reasons it works for me are A) it forces me to eat consciously; I know I will be entering the calories, so instead of scarfing eight cookies, I'm counting so I can enter the right amount in Fatsecret later, B) It's simple (takes only a moment to choose a food, dropdown menu for portion, barcode scanner/can enter food anywhere with app; I don't have to think about when, what, how often to eat), C) It's almost like a game (Hey, only 74% of allotted calories today! Woo!) I want something like that for money. [more inside]
