Actions. Consequences. No nonsense. Love Buffett.

From Political Irony, where I go when I need to lighten up:

Warren Buffett has one solution: “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP all sitting members of congress are ineligible for reelection.”

That’s appealing on so many levels . . .

But those didn’t count, see?

Just picked this up at The Conservative Lie, where interesting things are often found. He has more link rich info.
