Unemployment appears to be a giant snowball rolling uncontrollably down a mountain of national debt. Oh, not to worry. It's really not the American people's debt, but rather a congressional sinkhole.

Who cares if you can't pay your mortgage and lose your home, as long as billions in foreign aid keep flowing out to other countries• Don't even think about cutting NASA's budget -- there might be life somewhere in the universe other than in local homeless shelters.
