Goebbels goes digital

Part of the sell job on why we need to eliminate 91 programs to support our unwinnable war against terror is a new federal government website that lists programs that are performing well and poorly. It's completely fucking sinister.

Head start? HUD assistance to poor people? Perkins loans? Amtrak assistance? Healthy community access program? All ineffective.

Defense research? Nuclear physics programs? Terrorist interdiction program? Secret Service protective intelligence? All performing effectively.

You get the idea.

The budget makes me want to set myself on fire. It really does. I'm just going to sit here in my office listening to Killing Joke full blast on my headphones until we get a new administration.
