Anyone Who Thinks There Isn't More Govt Spending to Cut Should Watch This Freaking Video of "The Vice President and Dr. Biden in Trinidad"


I stumbled across this piece of junk video (uploaded May 29, 2013), "A 60 second recap: The Vice President and Dr. Biden in Trinidad" while doing actual work.

I realize that the time and money that went into creating this minute-long toothache (with a steel-drum band soundtrack, naturally, since it's set in the Caribbean) is miniscule, but it still puts the lie to the idea that we are in any way, shape, or form in an age of tragic, suicide-inducing austerity. Any government that is churning out stuff like this hasn't even scraped the frosting off the cake yet, much less starting digging into essential services.
