Britain can no long afford to pay the extortionate cost of the welfare state. “…state handouts (£207 billion a year) mop up every penny we pay in income tax (£155 billion a year).” “A hesitant plan to cap future increases was met with angry hostility by many in politics and the media.” Sounds a lot like here, doesn’t it? And they’ve already raised taxes to make the rich pay their “fair share”, which “unexpectedly” did not fix anything.

Well then, by royal decree, king O the 1st dispatches two wizards of finance, Doodler Lew and Bennie B, to show them how to print more Obama money to pay for things.

How ’bout that giant penny that Batman always had in his Bat-Cave’s trophy room?

I was going to put a link to a pic of the giant penny, but a picture of Yvonne Craig came up on the image search, and I instantly forgot about the damned penny, so I’m putting that here instead:

Ask Krugman and Obama . . . they’ll tell you that the only problem is that enough money hasn’t been spent on the welfare state to make it affordable.

You don’t suppose that there is a connection between the effort toward civilian disarmament and the impending economic collapse? I mean it all could be a coincidence, right?

It’s an “unexpected” coincidence.
