The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
I'm just afraid that if Republicans get back power, they'll revert to their "borrow-and-spend" ways.
Oh, that's adorable.
Someone's trying to convince us that the *deficit* is cause by a *lack of taxes*
When really - all educated people know - that the deficit is caused by excessive government spending.
But I guess that's just a technical - a minute detail - when it comes to the world of political partisan hackery. Truly, I'm tired of people trying to drag me into the Democrat party with this kind of bull****.
A screaming comes across the sky.
It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
But you will overlook the fact that Bush created a brand new unconstitutional entitlement and did nothing to cut spending on all the other unconstitutional nonsense the federal government is still wasting money on, and naturally, it's the unconstitutional spending that's seiving the defici. It is, after all, illegal.He CUT taxes at the same time that he started to multi-trillion dollar wars. I know it's easy for you partisan types to overlook that, but I won't.
