Speaking of meaningless phrases, I saw today that the pro-lifers have rebranded "abstinence-only education" as "sexual risk avoidance programs."

NPR told me not to call it austerity, or cheapskatiness, anymore. It's "fiscal consolidation" now. Who could be against that?

Seems like Austerity just kind of popped up like some kind of evil mushroom. Nobody is letting on as to why we are having a fit of Austerity or in what great National Cause some of us (Not rich people, whether they pay more taxes or not. Obviously in either case they will still be fuckin rich.) are being asked to sacrifice.

And most of all possibly, why are we all sitting around passively waiting for Ding Dong Daddy to do us with a hot poker? I mean, nobody but Occupy seems inclined even to put up a fight.

Hate to say it, but I'm wondering if the repubs in Congress, especially the Tea Bag lame ducks, are dumb enough to try to cut the amount as an act of austerity / not authorized by the constitution/etc.

Not to mention, they've already voiced a desire to get even with NJ for praising Obama.

butbutbut america is STILL EXCEPTIONAL.
