Gail Collins, "Last Pope and Next Budget": As Funny As New York's Belt Parkway

In another dismal attempt at evoking humor, Gail Collins, in her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Last Pope and Next Budget" (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/14/opinion/collins-last-pope-and-next-budget.html?_r=0), writes regarding America's budgetary calamity:

"Fearing the worst, a band of public-spirited citizens disguised as a touring scout troop stormed the Capitol, locked in the members of the House and Senate, and cut off their connections to the outside world. Deprived of their ability to Twitter, the lawmakers quickly came to an agreement."

Funny, huh?

Almost as funny as dog on the roof, as stepping on a rake and getting shafted where it counts, or driving on New York's potholed Belt Parkway, which reminds me of some of the less traveled routes I encountered in the Ukraine.

The United States, whose debt totals $16.7 trillion and is growing by the second, is headed for disaster, and this is no laughing matter. Consider what Obama had to say in July 2008 about this debt when it stood at only $9 trillion.



Ha, ha, ha. Yeah, right.
