Non Constructive Snark

Watching talking heads on the National. You know we're in deep shit when the CAW's economist likes a Conservative budget.

I don't know what to make of this budget. Mostly because I don't know what to make of this economy. It seems to me that much of this "stimulus" is supposed to roll back the tide/roll out the barrel and start the party over; instead it just might roll the nation over. As in "roll over and play dead."
How many people are seriously contemplating home renovations right now? Rich people, maybe. So they've rolled back (there's that damned verb again) the tax brackets on people making anything less than eighty grand. Speaking as someone who could triple his income without clearing that much (and who still considers himself middle class, oddly enough)--whoop-te-diddly-doo-dah.
I've got no problem with infrastructure spending, because God knows we need it anyway--but the rest of this just looks like--what was that old saying? "Ready, fire, aim"...
