#4381: Thanks, Obama! Thanks, Democrats!

National debt is $1,000 billion bigger than this time last year. THe national debt is four times bigger than it was twenty years ago.

The official deficit number is somewhere near $500 billion, but the government uses accounting tricks to make it look smaller than it actually is.

Whee! It's a party!

Obamacare has cost the economy some 350,000 jobs. But those are all low-quality minimum-wage jobs because business owners are evil bast--uh? You mean it's across the entire income spectrum? But that's impossible. Isn't it? I mean, employment can't just go and decline merely because employing people has become more expensive! That's crazy talk! That would never happen.

Manufacturing is soaring, but "industrial output" is tanking.

No, it doesn't make any sense to me, either.

More proof, as if we needed it by the sixth year of Obama's presidency, that the media has a severe leftist bias. Obama polls about as well as Bush did in his sixth year. In 2006, 124 stories about Bush's horrible numbers.

In 2014, eight about Obama's horrible numbers.

Naw, no bias there!

Yet Another Death Knell for man-made global warming. Atmospheric carbon dioxide has been rising steadily, but temperatures have not. The models are shit and have no predictive value whatsoever.

Saw a boxed set of Haganai Next at work the other day, and after reading the copy on the back thought it might be worth a gander. Then I saw that it was season 2, and realized I need to see season 1 first.

I suppose this means I should go set up Cephiro somewhere with a wireless card and let it quietly torrent the series so I can watch it at my leisure. (If I ever have any.) But that would take a lot of effort I don't want to expend right now, particularly since I have to get the grass cut tomorrow or so.

In a few months I'll be struggling with the snowblower and fondly recall being able to sit on the tractor in shorts and sandals and just steer. Well, that's how it goes, I guess.
