Now she walks through her sunken dream to the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen,
but the film is a saddening bore for she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on
Sailors fighting in the dance hall, oh man!
Look at those cavemen go, it's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know he's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Sunday Blathering

Since I'm tired of it.

Okay, so, remember the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2010, and a little bit into the Winter of 2011? Remember the economic and job conditions? You know, GDP growth on target for an average 3% growth, job outlook improving with an average 100,000+ jobs added each month (granted, job growth was below a sustainable factor of about 225,000 a month, but still damn better than the less than 30,000 a month we had this past Summer)?

So, what's the difference between then and now?

I don't know. Maybe the stimulus?

Nah. That couldn't be it because the Republicans want us to believe the Stimulus was a failure. I mean, they keep saying it all the time, like they're trying to convince us of something that's counterfactual. Because they want to offset emergency funding and defeat the President's Jobs Bill.

And, again, I'll lay down the gauntlet. Please, someone, anyone, show me where lower taxes and austerity programs during a recession(ish) economy has ever improved job growth and GDP growth in the past century (the time of modern economics). Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
