Colbert, De Niro and More: 6 of the Best Commencement Speech Zingers of 2015

A funny, progressive-minded graduation speech doesn't make up for all the student debt and dim job prospects, but we might as well enjoy them.

They diffuse responsibility by saying they were only a small part of the conduct. Such is the morality of the trollplex.

How NPR Is Doing Right-Wing's Economic Dirty Work on Debt

National Public Radio is doing its part to try to promote Peterson's cause with a Morning Edition piece that began by telling people that the next president "will have to wrestle with the federal debt." This is not true, but it is the hope of Peter Peterson that he can distract the public from the factors that will affect their lives, most importantly the upward redistribution of income, and obsess on the country's relative small deficit. (A larger deficit right now would promote growth and employment.)
A progressive economist explains why there's no crisis.

Sorry, but NPR is correct. While the deficit is lower the debt is still rising and it needs to be dealt with. That means we need a surplus, which this article fails to explain. Read this to get a better understanding of why: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2014/feb/27/debt-vs-deficit-whats-difference/
