That mathematical equations are not amenable to reason, pleading, threats, prayer, offers of compromise, etc. etc. etc.I have this image of George W. Bush, looking at the balance sheet for the US treasury, all in red, begging a giant talking minus sign with all the desperation of a junkie:
"Please, c'mon man, don't hold out on me."
"Damn, fool, get offa me. Ain't my faultcha can't add, dumbass."
Any cartoonists want to run with that idea, feel free.
