Deficit Idiocy

Sometimes you want to smash your head into something when you hear about "popular" concerns like the deficit.

This graph of what programs people want cut versus their percentage of the budget from The Washington Independent (h/t Newshoggers) ought to create that reaction amongst everybody including the GOP. The problem is that each little bunch has their preferred devils and their angels and none of it has anything to do with reality. Can this deficit spending continue? No, it cannot and this graph makes it obvious that taxes are the only solution that the public will tolerate despite their denials.

If you're gonna Teabag this post, point out which of these you propose to affect.
