Pirates have boarded the Ship of State

The budget was due months ago. But at least one has finally been proposed. Finally.

One point one t-r-i-l-l-i-o-n dollars! 1,924 pages. 6,488 earmarks. And 40% of federal revenue is borrowed, at present, before we even get to this budget.

And when somebody objected that this isn't much time to review the budget proposal before voting on it, Senator Reid said we have until January 5 to vote on it and get it to the House. How much time is needed for people to just do as they are told by their elected betters?

Oh, my poor children and grandchildren, and great grandchildren to come if my grandchildren can even manage to have children when the time comes.
