OK, at least we can subtract that from the deficits and interest of the last few years. It only begins to make up for it though.

Yeah, but that still doesn't excuse all of their previous debt. This budget is just starting to make up for it. It's hard to credit a government that's just cleaning up its own mess. But you know what: nowadays, a government that can clean up its own mess is still better than one that can't even do that.

Yes, I know, you get good news and all you can do is piss and moan. I was trying to overlook that, but you just had to drive it home, didn't you?

Funny, Reverend Lindsey Williams who was a pastor to the oil companies up in the arctic for decades has predicted this pricing accurately AGAIN.
( because the oil execs tell him what they are going to do)

Glad I invested back when oil was cheap.

..and ummm...no its not completely under their control at all!
HaHaHaHaHaHahhhhhhaaaa hoho heh...!

Say are any of you rubes interested in buying up some global warming shore front in Arizona?

"The leap was due to upward adjustments for inflation in real return bonds."


People also pay up on yearly taxes in those first 3 months, how much does that bring in compared to what the refunds are?

Um. . . no. You unceasingly whimper and wail about the ten steps back, even when there's a step forward.

It's straight out of Eeyore. "What a beautiful, sunny day!" "Yep, probably get skin cancer."

I thought those spots were were the diet-pop that bubbled up as it tried to expel itself.
