  •  Surplus is a Disgrace (0+ / 0-)

    The fact we have a surplus in the middle of the worst depression in 80 years isn't something to brag about.  Instead, it's a disgrace.  Or was I asleep for the past few years and now everyone who wants a job that pays a living wage has gotten one?  

    Didn't think so.  When deficit hysteria rules like it does now, and unemployment and suffering is ignored, it really looks bad for Democratic ideals.  This is bad news disguised as good.  What's next, a diary touting how cheap it will be to take a boat from Sweden to Japan once the Northern Icecap is gone?
