Lions and Tigers and Trillions Oh My!

OMG a trillion dollar deficit?! No1 that typ3s like th1s knos wut that means.

A trillion dollar deficit is a big deal. The irony is that there is no such things as money. It is an arbitrary item designed to represent another arbitrary item that people seem to give implicit value to. Wowza.

Losing jobs is real. A trillion dollar deficit is important, but not real. It is one of those things that we need to let bite us in the ass in the future if we have to increase it today in order to live. A bad economy leads to a bad deficit that will never recover, but a good economy by creating a worse deficit is far more likely to recover. So Barack Obama's spending plans should be welcome provided they increase jobs and have noticeable results on the economy. Assuming that is the case, I really could not care less.
