“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt. ” – Sen Barack Obama (2006)
“We either save this country or we do not. And to save it, we must seek solutions.” – Sen Marco Rubio (2011)
BTW, it’s worthwhile looking at the SF Examiner’s summary of the Democrat Leadership’s extremely partisan votes on increasing the debt ceiling. They pretty much always vote on partisan lines, economy &c. be damned!

From the Wall Street Journal –
The University of California at San Diego, for example, is creating a new full-time “vice chancellor for equity, diversity, and inclusion.” This position would augment UC San Diego’s already massive diversity apparatus, which includes the Chancellor’s Diversity Office, the associate vice chancellor for faculty equity, the assistant vice chancellor for diversity, the faculty equity advisors, the graduate diversity coordinators, the staff diversity liaison, the undergraduate student diversity liaison, the graduate student diversity liaison, the chief diversity officer, the director of development for diversity initiatives, the Office of Academic Diversity and Equal Opportunity, the Committee on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation Issues, the Committee on the Status of Women, the Campus Council on Climate, Culture and Inclusion, the Diversity Council, and the directors of the Cross-Cultural Center, the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center, and the Women’s Center.
Spam spam equity spam and diversity. Spam Gender Identity sausage and spam. Spam diversity diversity diversity and spam. Spam diversity tomato and diversity and spam.

Apparently “feminist economist”, Susan F. Feiner isn’t all that woried about unprecedented, out-of-control ballooning debt. Mostly ‘cuz :
We can just print money to pay it all off! Hooray! In her own words :
There is absolutely no bookkeeping, accounting or arithmetic possibility that the U.S. could “run out of money.” How could we? “We, the people” control the availability of dollars! And that means our government can, during a crisis of unemployment, spend what it wants to spend. Any other fiscal policy will cause more unnecessary pain and suffering.
Besides, this hedge fund manager guy, Barton Biggs, has a plan on which all that borrowed money could be spent. A Barton is a smart guy, and is probably like totally cute, so she takes on faith that that will be AwesomeCool.
For more, read “Math is hard” story @ their website. It’s main argument involved bird sounds. Seriously. Caw caw. See for yourself.

AN occasional homage to crazy people ranting on teh inturwebs. These are quote I just happen upon whilst eyeballin online stuff. Stuff like this –
Maybe after you scumbags have taken away all of the jobs and kicked everyone out of their homes and given it all to the rich, then your great Theocracy will be born.
…. but even more amusing, as I start taking closer note of it.
