http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090222/ap_on_go_pr_wh/obama_budget Now he wants to go and halve the deficit? Wow. This country is just falling apart by the wayside. THERE IS A CRUMBLING ECONOMY, AND THIS DICK WANTS TO REDUCE WAR FUNDING IN IRAQ? What a crock of shit. And then he wants to increase taxes for my family's tax bracket! Thanks for spreading the wealth around. I have an idea, don't worry about the deficit. It is just a PR headline that has no relevance to the economy. Instead, up the war funding, keep the upper class tax brackets the same(maybe lessen them if possible?), and just increase the middle class and lower class taxes. Now that's a plan I can jump on board with. This man just doesn't know a good thing when he sees it, and the deficit that Bush helped facilitate is just one of them. Thoughts? _________ EDIT: My fucking lord people. Since a few people on this board can't seem to understand a literary form as simple as satire...let me again spell it out all nice and convenient for you? K? I WAS LAYING ON THE SARCASM. (For the majority in this thread that did recognize it...and have had my back...I appreciate it.) My explanation post from later in the thread: The title and post was in fact satire and jest. I'm kinda shocked I was taken so seriously on this one, I thought I laid the sarcasm on pretty thick. I am not an Obama fanboy actually. Had a strong 3rd party candidate been on the ballot (fuck Bob Barr) I would've voted 3rd party. Just because I voted for the guy doesn't mean I'm a fanboy. Right? I would certainly hope that I'm allowed to vote for the guy without being lassoed in with the faction of supporters who literally think he is Jesus. Right? Just because I don't agree with conservative politics and how both sides do nothing but just smear each other, doesn't mean I'm an Obama fanatic. Matter of factly, my post was to joke about how both sides do just that, they basically just smear each other no matter what happens. Conservatives and Liberals alike. I just find it ridiculous that the die-hards in each party not only just tow the line on every issue, but also find it entirely possible for conservatives or liberals to be the downfall of the earth. It is annoying, dramatic, short-sighted and ridiculous. Yes, I had that mindset in high school, but that attitude should be something that you would hope adults grow out of. Oh well. You know the Trey Parker/Matt Stone quote: "Well we hate conservatives, but we really hate liberals"? Well I'd say my viewpoint is similar except I consider democrats "the lesser of two evils" if you will. But back on topic, quite frankly if Obama can cut the deficit in half, great. But lets see it. I'm not sure he can pull it off, but if he can, I'm more than willing to see if he can make it work; or is that not fanboy-ish enough?
