war as a wealth re-distribution method. all peaks in the ratio of govt
deficit to GNP occur because of wars.

i wouldn't mind a deficit caused by long-overdue infrastructure spending,
something our children would actually benefit from: improvements at today's
costs paid for with tomorrow's resultant wealth.  the war and tax cut is one
dog of a deficit.

There will be a one-minute boycott of CBS over refusal to air the
MoveOn ad.  CNN will be airing the ad at 8:10pm EST and 8:35pm EST.
Please join me in switching over at those times to watch the winning
ad, "Child's Pay."

Right-wing nutball apologists and AM talk radio talking-point
sycophants are particularly encouraged to view the ad in order to put
to rest the myth that MoveOn is some kind of fringe far-leftist org ---
indeed, this ad demonstrates that the rank-and-file "participants" in
MoveOn are keenly and *primarily* concerned about what *should* be a
key conservative issue, fiscal responsibility.  This ad --- this
message --- beat out all the others.  That should reflect what's on
everybody's mind.  (Hint:  it's the economy, stupid.  And the Dow isn't
by itself a very good indicator of overall economic health.)

Latest deficit estimate:  ~$1.9T over the next 6 years --- that's an
additional HALF TRILLION since the last estimate, due primarily to the
underestimated costs of Iraq and the free Viagra giveaway in attempt to
woo "The Worst Generation."

That's $1.9 TERABUCKS, give and take a few $B.

Who's going to pay?
