Man. I'm so old, I can remember when "the party of personal responsibility" at least pretended to be just that, rather than openly advocating for the United States of America to become a deadbeat nation, and therefore blow up the world economy and kneecap our grandchildren.
Those were the days. Man, I miss 2010.
You know, it's funny. I hear a politician compare the world's largest economy to a family budget and I think, "my good golly, but anyone who doesn't realize how utterly different those two things are, how facile it is to compare the two, is simply a compete and total ignoramus." And then I wonder why there's anyone who graduated high school who doesn't think the exact same thing. And I don't like the obvious answer.
