Up Is Down, Black Is White...

Yesterday, I reported that I had learned a few new things of late.

For example. automation is both a major cause of job loss and of job growth. That Obama blames a lot of our economic woes on owners of corporate jets who took advantage of the tax break Obama gave them in his stimulus bill.

I've also learned other things. things such as that when we drop bombs and missiles on a sovereign nation with the intent of deposing or killing the head of state, it's not really a war unless the president says it is. Or that Michigan's law that absolutely forbids any kind of discrimination based on race or sex is, in and of itself, racially and sexually discriminatory. That a government that has run up a debt of over 14 trillion dollars -- more than doubled in eight years -- doesn't have a spending problem, but just needs more money.

I'm starting to think I'm just not cut out for understanding modern politics.

I wonder if my health insurance would cover the necessary lobotomy, so I can?

Tell them that it is nescessary to help you adjust to your state paid for sex change and they will pay for it.

Of course, after the lobotomy you would easily qualify for a job in the lamestream media.

Just another demonstration of how little obama both understands the economy and thinks about what he is doing to the economy. These kind of statements indicate that he doesn't think about policy but reacts without thinking based on ideological beliefs. The problem is that his beliefs are not based on a foundation of understanding.

That's just because you don't speak "NewSpeak".

Take Kalifornia. The "Progressives" finally passed a state budget (no Republican votes). A last minute "surprise" was that despite the fact that state funding of K-12 will be cut by BILLIONS this year, school districts will be FORBIDDEN to lay off any school teachers. If the rosy economic projections prove to be false - there are automatic triggers to cut even more money. But the teachers will still have their jobs.

Now that kind of crap used to be called 'passing the buck' (literally). Today it's called 'passing a balanced budget'.

Welcome to the 'Alice in Wonderland' presidency.

Will:

Based on your tax records we find that a lobotomy would likely have an undesirable economic impact and decrease tax revenues therefore your request is denied. You may request a further review by submitting evidence that your productivity has declined as a result of age, injury or illness.

Jay,

If your insurance policy won't cover the lobotomy, then perhaps the DNC will. All you'd have to do is become a registered Democrat.

No need for a lobotamy, just start reading modern highschool textbooks-- then it will all make sense.
