Magic Money Boom-Boom

May 5, 2009

Dear Mister President,
(and Mister Reede and Miz Pool O'See and Mister Oral Snatch and Mister Math's Son)

Has it occurred to you that the economic boom-boom of the last decade is a result of Magic Money*? Has it occurred to you that maybe this Magic Money Boom-Boom has unjustly overinflated our standard of living? Has it occurred to you that maybe the American people need to scale it back a little? "Sacrifice,"** if you will?

Or do you intend to perpetuate this economic crisis by dumping more Magic Money into our economy?

Just curious.

* Magic Money is money spent that doesn't actually exist. Examples include: a loan that you are unable to pay back, a loan to pay off another loan, a credit card with an abusively large limit and the billions you intend to spend without "raising taxes." Rrrrrrriiiiight.

** “Everyone in this chamber — Democrats and Republicans — will have to sacrifice some worthy priorities for which there are no dollars,” Obama said. “And that includes me.”
