"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Dems shrink deficit

Here's a story you won't hear from the horse-race-obsessed MSM.  The Democrats shrank the deficit in 2010 by nearly $122 billion.  Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, GOPers.
For the 2010 fiscal year that ended on September 30, the government had a budget shortfall of 1.294 trillion dollars, down 122 billion dollars from the previous year's record-setting high.
Revenue rose and spending fell amid recovery from recession and as President Barack Obama's Democratic administration wound down some of the emergency measures taken to restore growth.
Suck on that, Rethuglicans!
