#2675: Is it ACTUALLY going to be $600 billion per year?

I don't know; the last time we were promised $100 billion in cuts, we got $352 million. Using the math that the GOP uses, "$6 trillion over ten years" means cuts of $2.112 billion per year, or a total of $21.12 billion over ten years.

"$6 trillion over 10 years" translates to $600 billion, unless my math is faulty. If it were, it would mean I was qualified to be a Congressman!

Hey! I just heard on the radio that a guy came to Illinois to kill someone because Illinois no longer has a death penalty.

Of course, the people who gave us this idiotic policy are saying we mustn't focus on the guy's stated reasons for coming to Illinois to do this, oh no! We have to concentrate on how senseless the tragedy is!

So does this mean that the death penalty is, after all, a deterrent?

The guy from the furnace place just left. $90 per year cumshaw to keep the warranty--faugh. But it's done for another year.

Since I didn't want the guy to see my pit of a bedroom, I stayed out of it. I had the lights off and the door closed most of the way; and while he was here I worked on tidying the kitchen and glued together a pet dish that I broke a couple weeks ago.

My fingertips, of course, are now coated with cyanoacrylate. Oh well. I even glued the tube of glue to my thumb. I'm batting a thousand!
