It's an embarrassing day to be an empirical American,* but a perfect time for a song like Merchandise.

*One point five trillion dollars. And that's if everything goes swimmingly. It won't. The evidence is Kansas. Or Haiti. Skyrocketing deficits + weak environmental, worker, and consumer protections + eroded social safety nets = third world. Selling-out generations is a risky endeavor. I don't think the GOP recognizes the consequences.
