Taking a little break from reality today, I wandered into the world of the surreal. Essentially that means I spent a few minutes reading about US politics. More specifically about the impending vote on the 11th hour continuing resolution that was agreed to last weekend that supposedly slashed $38.5 billion out of the federal budget. Word is spreading around that the actual savings are more like $352 million. That's supposedly from the Congressional Budget Office, and that means most of the supposed savings are accounting tricks.
I saw "supposed" because there's no way anyone can know what to believe these days since we've abandoned all pretense of rational debate that contains some semblance of the truth.
In a way it makes me laugh that the folks who agonized over putting the deal together may have been found out prior to the vote being taken. As it looks, they even buffaloed their own respective party members with this.
What a country. What a farce. How surreal.
