  •  Conservatives move beyond mere accounting (7+ / 0-)

    Principled conservatives have advanced far beyond primitive accounting techniques such as having ledgers with "in" (revenue / income) and "out" (expenditures).

    Now, with new conservative accounting principles, there is only a spending side, and you only have to list the spending you don't like.

    Then, you let math work magic behind the scenes and somehow or other it all equals out.

    Primitive liberals remain stuck in their insistence that the U.S. not only has "spendin'," but "revenue," "income," and some of the more radical ones mention that not only does the U.S. have "debt" but -- and this is shocking, I know -- "assets".

    Yes, that's right, the USA doesn't just sit around owing their own and foreign investors stuff, it also owns lots of stuff.
