Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

state of the union thread

Bush spokesman has said he will not be sentimental, no looking back. He still has 357 days to enact policy, and will focus on that.

after the past 7 years, I would not address the past either...

I'm so sorry, that'll cost 5 Trillion dollars.

Hell, just balancing the budget we have NOW will cost a few additional percentage points OVER his 'rolled back' tax cuts.

Basically, through "it's YOUR money", Bush and the Republicans have had carte blanche to borrow 300 billion dollars a year, EVERY year, of his presidency.  The Chinese have finally cut back on buying our t-bills, so NOW we're printing it.

And the Republican's best idea of what to do is deepen the hole faster.

Nah, watching Fox News is enough to keep your eyes WIDE open with astonishment.  And yelling at the top of your voice every so often at the absolute idiocy of the Republican talking points.

Yup, war is peace, torture is friendly conversation, cutting taxes WILL balance the budget eventually, all Democrats are commies, socialists and liberals, and the Free Market will solve all our problems.  Until things get REALLY bad, when it's the Fed's job to step in and make all things right.

"this is the 1st time in american history we have had tax cuts in a time of war"

Not exactly, the war is financed through printing more money, which is the inflation tax. It's a fair flat tax that equally affects everyone, and very nicely reduces our foreign debt at the same time.

It's just those pesky side effects like $100/barrel oil and economic collapse you gotta watch for.

But the good news is there are lots of job openings in the military-industrial complex for bright folks.
