Planet Moron: Sure The Cuts Were Insignificant, But At Least They Weren’t Genuine

Planet Moron: Sure The Cuts Were Insignificant, But At Least They Weren’t Genuine.

I haven’t highlighted a piece from Planet Moron in a while, mostly because of my laziness and lack of desire to link to Planet Moron, but sometimes you read a line and you just have to share it, as exemplified here:

Among the severe, draconian cuts that Republicans championed and that the President “would not have made… in better circumstances,” are $10 billion in cuts to earmarks the House already banned, $10 billion in cuts that had already been passed into law, $5 billion in cuts to crime victims that aren’t actually cuts at all, billions in cuts by not spending money that was not going to be spent anyway, and $1.5 billion in cuts “slashed” from High-Speed Rail achieved by agreeing to spend an additional $1 billion on High-Speed Rail.  (Don’t ask, Washington budget calculations are very complex involving such higher mathematical functions as addition, subtraction, and lying.)

LMAO, addiction, subtraction, and lying.  That’s pretty damn funny.

Read the rest here….

    It is meaningless to question the integrity of politicians when you know very well that they have no integrity.

    Sticker price – $29,000
    You pay – $28,000
    Salesman- “You just saved $1,000.”

    While a reality-based person might insist that they’ve instead spent $28 grand, that’s not how the used car peddlers in D.C. want you to see it.

    Thanks for the link, Fleece, I appreciate your willingness to jeopardize your otherwise flawless reputation for good taste and sound judgment.

      LMAO, touche my friend. In all seriousness, great post, very entertaining, and like the best satire, grounded in fact.
