Budget Slashed!


The President ordered the cabinet to cut $100 million from the $3.5
trillion federal budget. I'm so impressed by this sacrifice that I have
decided to do the same thing with my personal budget. I spend about $2000 a
month on groceries, household expenses, medicine, utilities, etc., but it's
time to get out the budget-cutting axe, go through my expenses, and cut

I'm going to cut my spending at exactly the same ratio, 1/35,000 of
my total budget. After doing the math, it looks like instead of spending
$2000 a month, I'm going to have to cut that number by six cents. Yes, I'm
going to have to get by with $1999.94, but that's what sacrifice is all
about. I'll just have to do without some things, that are, frankly,

Did the president actually think no one would do the math?

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
