“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

George Osbourne, 2:1 (3.2 GPA) in History, why is the deficit in the USA lower relatively than in the UK?

Because we didn't do as much austerity.

Our deficit is way way down. Of course Obama gets no credit. And the deficit scolds are still at it.

“Why, it's almost as if shredding the safety net, not reducing the deficit, was their real goal.” 

BBC, on Sunday's news show your presenter said “Well, of course an increase in funding for health will mean there have to be cuts elsewhere.”


Over here, that statement is well recognized as a Republican doctrine, and announced as such.

There is more of a war of ideas on NPR than on the BBC at this point.

I never, never thought I'd say that.
