Every day I read the news I become convinced that the US will soon make Greece look like a well-oiled financial machine. Xenu knows that Obama has come up short of my expectations on a dozen different levels, (I'm sure that keeps him up at night), but for fuck's sake people, the Republicans ran on the idea that the deficit was the number one problem facing the country, (which for once I'd have to say they're right about), and the first fucking thing they do is force through tax breaks for people making more than $250,000 a year. Which will add $120 billion to the deficit over the next two years. The. First. Fucking. Thing. They. Did.
And Obama rolled over like my dog looking to get her belly rubbed, then held a press conference and bitched out the Democrats for failing to enthusiastically backing him up on this deal. Oh, the next two years are going to be a fucking treat.
Fortunately, this will eventually happen
, and all of this will seem like small potatoes. That's all I need to stop saving for my retirement.
