Multi-Trillion Dollar Budget? Not As Bad As It Seems–The Dollar’s Only Worth 12 Cents

As an addendum to BSYRTGA’s weekend’s output (Mistaking The Horse’s Ass For The Horse, and Dirty Harry Tells It Like It Is), I came across these two items.  The first should put the old kibosh on any more ludicrous mainstream media comparisons of the current Chief Executive to President Reagan. Obama, history’s greatest spendthrift, is set to propose a multi-trillion dollar federal budget for the fiscal year 2012.  If the beleaguered buck was worth more than 12 cents (relative to the dollar in 1950), we’d probably be talking about serious money here.  The other snippet concerns the travails of conservative thespians trying to earn a living while swimming among the liberal piranhas of Hollywood.  Morgan Brittany, star of the former hit series Dallas, recounts this episode with Ed Asner,  television’s “Lou Grant” on the old Mary Tyler Moore Show:

the two starred in a stage-play together during the infamous Florida recount that put Republican George W. Bush in the White House over Democrat Al Gore. And she told how she lost Asner’s friendship due to politics.

“Every night he just loved me and came in and gave me a big hug,” she said. “Then one night he was going crazy about Gore and Bush and stealing the election. I’m backstage and I said, ‘Ed, chill, not everybody thinks the way you do’.”

“Well, where do I begin?” I swear. It was like a light switch,” she said. “He turned to me and said, ‘you’re not a Republican?’ I said, ‘yep.’ And he said, ‘I can’t even look at you. I can’t even talk to you’.

“From that moment on, he never spoke to me again, except on stage.”

Liberals are the most tolerant people in the world, as long as you agree with them.  Hooray for Hollywood.

      Morning, SAMI. How flies the Enola Gay today?

        The Enola Gay didn’t rely on batteries to complete it’s mission.
        How are the poor folks that were sucked into buying all-electric cars going to survive gridlock on the highway, in freezing temperatures, when the battery runs dry ?
        Then you have it towed home, and you find out that your electricity is non-existent !
        DAMN !!!
        Give me an internal combustion truck anytime.
        The B-29 didn’t really care, once you got the radials fired up.
        After that, the magnetos would take over.
        God Bless those Ground Crews.

    Yes, that’s why they call themselves ‘actors’.
    They can be anything you want on screen, but when it comes to real life, and values, that’s where they draw the line.
    If you don’t agree with them, you’re stupid, and to be denied any forum whatsoever to voice your opinion. (MSM).
    The head charlatan in chief is the prime example.

    My God America, WAKE UP !

    The next POTUS better have some big ones if this idiot spends out his current term.

    We the People need a leader in Washington, and so do our Allies.
    POTUS has recently stated that France is our greatest ally.
    You go girl.
