The deficit trials of 2017

A classic 1986 video by Ridley Scott, done in protest of deficit spending under Reagan. 

In the Canadian version, who would we have up there in the dock?

These Hollywood types are classic cases, all right. If deficit spending is done under one of their fair-haired boys (Carter, Clinton, or in Canada, Trudeau), people will put up oil paintings of you and fawn over your memory until their dying days. But don't let a conservative ever dare.

And how abut how people treat Clinton like a rock star and Bush like a pariah despite the fact that both of them ordered wars unauthorized by the U.N.? Clinton, for that matter, went to war with a lot less provocation, and his handling of the terrorism file arguably contributed to September 11--the last in a long line of little booby traps he laid for his successor (albeit this last one was unintentional). Bush's transfer of power to Obama was, by contrast, a model of graciousness.
