What draconian cuts?

Zeroing out a program is a 100% cut.

That qualifies as draconian, plus severe, decimating, or most adjectives you'd find in a thesaurus for draconian.

Do you now deny programs have been targeted for complete elimination?

I denied nothing.

I asked what Draconian cuts.

Nobody has listed them yet.

I wonder why?

I might even agree with saving them ... if there actually is a list.

Do you think we are all as stupid as you?

It was quite clear.

Draconian
is an adjective meaning great severity, that derives from Draco, an Athenian law scribe under whom small offences had heavy punishments (Draconian laws).</div></div>Me, myself, i would never uze that adjektiv to deskribe things that were not punishments or penaltys.

But thats me -- i am a stickler for uzing words properly, preferably uzing the quaint meaning, preferrably uzing the quaint spelling.
