    "After all, as we learned in the 1990s, nothing shrinks the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle-class jobs. That has to be our driving focus. That has to be our North Star. Making America a magnet for good jobs."

      bit, here, today, in kosland, or click this little link, because guess what? Everyone who says 'the deficit is growing, the deficit is growing!' is, like, totally effing WRONG! and the whole bullshit exercise is just another case of the rich blowing smoke in our collective stupid Narrative-eating faces.

      Folks of a nice, liberal, progressive bent, maybe it is time to stop being, like, so "understanding" and, like, "tolerant" and you know, "nice," and get down and a little dirty in response to what's being done to us nice, try-to-keep-what-little-we-think-we-have, iGeneration DOPES.

And how many of you, of US, believe that the "sequester," by "cutting" the rate of growth, THE RATE OF GROWTH, of the Pentagram budget to "just" 2.4% a year, is "horribly endangering our national security"? )

      "Is that all there is?" Peggy Lee.
