The GOP’s plan to fix the economy is to cut $100 billion of what they deem gratuitous and wasteful spending, like funding for the Environmental Protection Agency and Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Their plan would be to cut only $15 billion from the defense budget (a well over $1 to $1.35 trillion sinkhole in our deficit, at least those were the numbers from this last fiscal year), while cutting $3 billion from the EPA (a 30 percent slashing in the midst of a global climate change crisis, I might add), and cutting the CPB entirely!
I guess the lesson here is that you don’t have to believe in the need for taking care of the planet and espousing fair and balanced media if you’re a Creationist, because Noah 2.0 will float up on his arc should the Apocalypse come (i.e. the ice caps melt and flood the world). And if he doesn’t, you’ll all end up in Heaven on the Day of Reckoning for living such altruistic socially conscious existences on earth, right? So fuck the planet and free speech, right? Right!
