Barack Obama

Today, as promised, President Obama talked about his deficit-reduction plan. Cutting $4,000,000,000,000 (numbers used for effect) seems great, before you find out that it could take twelve years. There has to be a faster way to cut into that debt. Maybe, if we have one huge, intercontinental garage sale.

Barack, also, got a little unexpected support from Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly played mythbuster on his show, addressing some of the malarkey floating around about Obama. He has no idea how gravitational pull and orbits work, but even he thinks it's outrageous to claim that our President isn't American. He even went as far as to throw Bush under the bus in defense of Barack. I almost fell off my high horse!

I'm still in shock every time I watch House, so this next clip of the cast of Doctor Who reciting tweets in American accents blows me away. Well, it does for the most part. Karen Gillan kind of struggled, but we'll give her a pass — Ghostface Killah, Snooki, and Sarah Palin give me trouble, too.

Speaking of celebs from across the pond: Simon Cowell makes way too much money compared to his actual worth to society. Then, after robbing the world of $208,000 a day, he does almost nothing with it. Here are seven things he can do with his cash that would be better.

"Speaking of celebs from across the pond: Simon Cowell makes way too much money compared to his actual worth to society. Then, after robbing the world of $208,000 a day, he does almost nothing with it."

How Mr Warner is the arbiter of an individual's worth to society is mystifying. Mr Cowell is worth precisely what he is able to earn. If he robbed anyone, that would be news; more likely Mr Warner simply feels belittled that Mr Cowell makes so much more than he does.

So we are now worth precisely what we earn? That must be so motivating to those who find themselves out of work, those worthless bastards.

In Obama's America, it appears you're worth what you can be taxed.

Yes, Jess, you're net worth is closely linked to what you earn. If you're talking about intrinsic worth, that's a philosophical question.

Strange that this plan (now public) has no relation to the plan he presented in February. If I were cynical I'd think that he's playing politics with the future of our (once) great Nation.
