City must trim its budget… to FY2000 levels…soon.

A favorite blogger of mine, Karl Denninger, spends a good amount of his time calling out the lies put forth as truth by our “Federal” Reserve, Congress, White House and corporate media.
Indeed… Who respects authority figures these days? Americans are lied to by everyone–from politicians to CEOs to AC Transit directors to City of Oakland administrators to realtors…. it’s a loooong list! That many Americans don’t vote actually shows how smart we are.
