the liberal media, always focusing on the negative

It may not be on be front page news today, what with all the scandals over ugly Chinese girls and ejaculating former politicians, but if you dig in your local paper, you’ll most likely find some mention of the fact that our federal budget deficit passed the $100 billion mark. It sounds terrible, right? (It really isn’t that bad.) But that seems to be the only kind of news that our pathetic liberal press is willing to publish. How often do you see stories on the successes of the Bush administration? Did you know, for instance, that while our economy is having this little readjustment, the economy of Iraq is doing quite well? Well, it’s true. They had a record budget surplus this year… So, next time you hear someone talking about a neighbor who is losing her house, or a family member who killed himself because of debt, just remember – that’s just here in the United States.

    And for every story about a dead soldier, there’s another story about a booming coffin industry that goes untold. It’s tragic really.

    Um, Mark… it’s far worse than you suggest in your post.

    “…you’ll most likely find some mention of the fact that our federal budget deficit passed the $100 billion mark.”

    That’s $100 billion IN ONE MONTH!

    That’s $333.33 per person. I don’t know about any of you, but my family did NOT sock away $1,333.33 last month to pay our share of that. Sorry about that everybody. Our bad. Can someone lend me $1,330? I can cover the other $3.33.

    The United Arab Emirates is doing amazingly well.

    Exxon Mobil just had the best quarter of any corporation in human history.

    The Bush and Cheney families are better of financially than ever, and by far.

    There really isn’t any such thing as a “bad” economy. There are just better economies for fewer people. If you happen to be one of those who are worse off, it’s your own fault.
