We're in the middle of a small economic crisis with crashing home values, incredible mortgage default rates and crowds of experts holding their hands up and stating 'hell I don't know when it'll get better'.
People are being murdered by the thousands in Darfur.
There's a climate issue that a lot of people think has something to do with us and very few people are investigating the massive fraud involved in that mess.
The Prius uses more fossil fuels in production and recycling than the hummer in it's entire life span, but people still aren't shooting those irritating slow driving HOV lane hogging pieces of shit.
The 'War on Drugs' is a miserable failure and has led only to the intense militarization of the American police forces and the amazing increase in funding for narco-trafficking. Oh and incredible increases in violent crime.
The United States has a greater percentage of it's population in prison than any nation in the world (discounting Rwanda for obvious reasons).
BUT DON'T WORRY EVERYONE
The United States Congress (one of the most powerful governing bodies in the world) with it's whopping 29percent approval rating will be addressing that Steroids in Baseball issue... Whooo; What a relief.
I have a BIG G.F.Y. for ya.

the gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason the gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot
Guy Fawkes Guy Fawkes twas his intent
to blow up the king and Parliament.
It's no coincidence that Ron Paul supporters chose yesterday's date to organize a huge fund raising protest.
4.2 million dollars in 24 hours as a matter of fact. No doubt supporters intend that money for a non-violent version of the Guy Fawkes gun powder plot. In direct opposition to corruption in the government, Ron Paul supporters intend to take down as much of the criminal government as possible.
All I have to say is 4.2 million dollars in 24 hours. Who thinks we're screwing around now?

It's amazing to see a whole room full of geniuses get duped by this asshole and his weak math.
I can't decide if we need to blame the Corn Lobby for this or Toyota and their bullshit Prius. (more on that later.)

step one: Create or Locate a potentially scary thing.
Step two: Market the idea, manipulate it to make it the scariest thing possible
Step three: let the fund raising begin.
Global warming is a bake sale. Figure out who really gets the money and you'll see what's really going on.

Can anyone answer this one question for me? Is it illegal to resist and illegal arrest?
How about this one: Is assault not assault if the person committing the act has a badge?
Or this question: When does another person have the right to put their hands on your body?
What about this: Under what circumstances specifically is it not your individual right to defend yourself from a violent attacker?
Or this: If two ordinary citizens are having a heated conversation and one of them elevates it to a physical dispute, isn't that person committing an illegal act?
Is it legal if under the exact same circumstances the physical aggressor is an agent of the government?
Is it legal if the person who is assaulted is asking hard questions?
What if it's just because they don't shut up when the government agent tells them to shut up?
I feel like there may be some sort of fundamental document that covers this sort of thing. Maybe a bill of some sort, with like enumerated rights on it. I don't know. The legal system is so complicated and the 40 lawyers I carry with me at all times won't explain the ins and the outs and the what have yous. If only there was some sort of guideline by which we could all derive some sort legal knowledge. If only there was one document that ensured that we all knew when an agent of a tyrannical government was violating our fundamental freedoms, so we would know without legal consultation if it was alright to defend ourselves or if we, in fact, deserved to be silenced.

Newt Gingrich announces this week that Hillarity has an 80 percent chance of making it through the primary and winning the general election. 80 percent... How in the back-rooms of Repugnant heavy hitters has she gone from no chance to 80 percent... Hmmm, one cannot help but wonder who shouldn't be taken at face value... Ok, one doesn't have to wonder long. I don't know if Newt is planning a run for the white house, I'd wager 70/30 against it, but you never know, this season will likely be filled with unusual and unexpected events. What I do know is that above wanting to look right, Newt is an R team player and he wants to win. What better way to secure a victory than to play the expectations game in your opponent's primary. Raise expectations and excitement among H supporters while downplaying her opponents and you stand a much greater chance of getting the opponent you really want in the general election. Plus there's the bonus of setting up impossible standards for her steps to victory. If she falls short of landslide anywhere along the way even a victory looks like a loss, and a 'wise' opponent (read: Gingrich or one of his ilk)looks like a superstar. Play the right cards early like this and the R's may avoid hard target positive campaigners like Obama-lama-ding-dong and in stead get to go head to head with Hillarity... And her monkey.

Senator Craig can resign or not, he can lose his next election or win it. I really really don't care. What does concern me is that in a society with more than 4 murders per hundred thousand people per year, in a society where we are constantly barraged with illegal searches in order to "protect" us at the airport; the police are wasting our time and money setting up sting operations to police the way that homos hit on each-other. Is this really our priority? Are we as a society so fucked up that we care how people agree to fuck each other? What's next? Setting up stings in the airport bar; if you smile and buy someone a drink is that still OK? Is it less OK if a guy buys a guy a drink, and what specific statute regulates this kind of behavior?
Look I don't want people fucking in bathroom stalls either. It's creepy, for sure. But are we all as a group certain that a foot tap and a hand under a stall is a guarantee of lewd action? This is a waste of taxpayer dollars and a waste of police time.
Listen to the interview with Craig. It may seem obvious that he's lying to cover up his behavior (it may not). But focus on the specific behavior to which he's being asked to admit. Listen to the specific nuances of behavior that lead the police officer to accuse him of lying. Listen to the way that the police officer manipulates him by routinely suggesting that if he confesses to this behavior then no one has to find out about it.
Interview with Craig
So is the open palm facing up a crime but a closed palm facing down is fine? Is the crime committed when the hand breaks the horizontal plane of the bottom of the stall wall or is the crime committed when the hand breaks the vertical plane of the stall wall? What if the hand is open, palm up (supinated) when it crosses the horizontal plane but rotated palm down (pronated) when it crosses the vertical plane? What if the opposite is true?
I'm so glad I'm not gay. I mean this code is complicated. As a straight male all I have to do buy a drink, make an offer, get rejected and go home to watch pornography on the internet. It's so much simpler.
I wonder how many times I have to ask this question; Can anybody tell me why it is that people don't trust the police? I just can't seem to figure it out. I mean it can't be the lying, the traps, the constant use of citizens as a fund raising opportunity, the arrogant attitudes, or the complete lack of appropriate oversight. It's probably not even the fact that police routinely get away with the same offenses with which they charge others.
I just don't know.
What I do know is that Congress should have a higher standard for it's members than for others. What I do know is that police activities are the direct result of legislative decisions. The US government, State and Local legislators and counselors, these are the people that created our police state and it never hurts my feelings to see one of them get bit by the same machine they created to control the citizens.
Police are coming into the homes of innocent people in droves with military training, military weapons, a judicial system weighted grossly in their favor, and complete disdain for a constitution that they openly believe to be arcane.
But our airport bathrooms are protected from consenting sexual advances. Or at the very least they are protected from supinated palms below the horizontal plane of the stall walls. Cause that's a huge national security issue.

How anyone in the world wouldn't want to vote for this man. You'd have to be insane. It's like we all sit around thinking to ourselves 'hmmm good ideas are just so unlikely to work... Can we get maybe some bad ideas, or mediocre ones at least. We know mediocre ideas tend to turn out as well as we expect'. Grrrr... Come on people... you know you want it.
Especially in light of what this guy has to say.

What's more interesting is another little secret that many major news sources are trying to keep under wraps. The winner of the debate. According to numerous online polls, most interestingly one by ABC who ran the debate, Ron Paul won by more than a significant margin. There are numerous reports of the ABC poll resetting after RP took the early lead. Some more of Drudge numbers moving in both directions. Creepy.
Of course online polls don't reflect what more intricate polling would. For instance, the online polls don't weed out those that are unlikely to actually vote, and while they do have an option for "Nobody won. I'm voting Democratic" there are no safeguards to establish who R primary voters would choose.
I think it's safe to say that while many in this same group have praised RP in the past he and his ideas are open territory for negative attacks amongst the R's. It may be the most taboo idea in the world for an R to suggest that the war with Iraq isn't a good idea. That spells little protection from the RNC for our boy. It's funny that the man polls suggest would be a hands down favorite if he were to be let loose in a general election, stands the least likelihood of actually getting his party's nomination. Well not the least likelihood, I mean Duncan Hunter will be lucky if his own family voted for him. In similar wickedly interesting news (if only in a sense of shcadenfruede) Rudy's daughter's facebook page revealed this week that she plans to vote for Obamalamadingdong. Thanks to Slate for that.
But I digress, the point is that anyone in the media or anywhere else that claims that Ron Paul isn't a contender in this race, that he isn't running to win, is trying to sell you something you shouldn't buy. I've met the man more than once and I promise you that he's not fucking around.

Harry Potter Dies. Details are limited but it does appear to be drug related. Potter was found in his hotel room hanging from a towel rod by his own belt, in what appears to be a tragic instance of auto-erotic-asphyxiation. Potter had allegedly been up late the night before doing speed balls ( a mixture of cocaine and heroin) with several prostitutes; all of whom appear to have left well before the presumed time of death.
More to come
Obama suggested this week that he supports a graduated sex ed program that starts in kindergarten. He and a great many other people (most of whom are members of his party,to be fair) say that earlier exposure will make children safer. I have another idea what it's about.
Sex ed is often linked to increased levels of sexual activity among young people. We can easily justify this with teenager as it also lowers the rates of disease and pregnancy among teens who are in all likelihood starting to engage in sexual behavior with or without the classes. While I don't think it's the job of the government to spend my tax dollars teaching teenagers how to give good hand jobs, I'll concede the ground for the purpose of this theory.
If younger and younger kids get sex ed, then it stands to reason that it's possible that at the younger end of the fertility spectrum some children will engage in sex earlier than when they would have naturally since they learned about it between the alphabet and naptime. If that's the case, and since occurances of sexual activity in those younger groups has historically been very minimal then it stands to reason that some of them will do it wrong. As it is difficult to get, lets say 13 year olds, to follow any directions. If some of them are doing it wrong, then likely some of them will get pregnant. And if they do it seems likely that some of them will not have the ability to finish school and go on to lucrative careers.
And what happens to teen parents with little education and no strong ability to pay for food and clothing for what will soon be teen children? Of course... They become Democrat voters.
It's just a theory of course. I don't have the money for a study.
People may be shocked to learn that teenagers don't always glean the same message that adults think they are spreading. The war on drugs, like the war on tobacco has had the strange effect of moving those substances into the common experience of children. The use of alarmist advertising and scare tactics tends to attract more young people than it discourages.

Adams on his deathbed was comforted about the future of the union by the fact that his friend and rival Thomas Jefferson remained to carry the torch. Little did he know that he had outlived Jefferson by mere hours. Years earlier he had predicted that he would outlive Jefferson and now he believed that to be false. In his last words we can see the hope and the fear for the future of our nation.
"Thomas Jefferson still survives."
Enjoy your 4th of July folks and take a minute to read a little bit of what the revolutionary's wrote. A document that they believed to be their death warrant.
And guess what the little heir to the eco-terrorist tree hugger pervert throne was driving... Go on guess...
It was a Prius.
I giggled like a little girl. You will too.
This seems to be the Gore message I think. Save the environment but fuck the people. I wonder is it illegal in California to be driving under the influence and in possession of countless illegal drugs if you are, at the time, driving an environmentally friendly hybrid car. I mean cause that's what matters in the world right now, isn't it?

Since 1973 the American public have never given the Unites States Congress an approval rating lower than 18%, until today. Today the question do you have a "great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress" was met with a yes by only 14% if those questioned.
Just to put that into perspective for you... Americans hate congress now more than the Demoncrats hated congress when the Repugnacans were in charge... I'll repeat that for those of you that have trouble reading. Americans, all of us, you, me, all of us, have less confidence in the US Congress than the D's did when the R's were running the show. That means that you'll find more people right now at McDonald's that don't trust the House of Representatives than you would have three years ago at a N.O.W. rally hosted by Gloria Steinem.
Ok so maybe I'm comparing two sets of unrelated data and manipulating them for my own purposes. Perhaps my analysis is less "true" than it is pleasing... But, I will say this, the approval ratings across the board have gone down since the mighty D's came in to save the day. Also people really really hate Congress. I mean more than they hate all kinds of other things... I would venture a guess that 'Congressman' is the most hated minority in America. Take that Blacks, Jews and Mexicans... Ha. Perhaps we should have an immigration policy that keeps members of our own government out.

The winners it would seem in this long term arrangement are the media companies that get to sell ad time in all kinds of markets that are usually not in huge demand.
The losers, of course are all of us. We get less real governing for our money and way more campaigning to tie up two major branches of government. I guess I should be pleased as I agree with Thomas Paine that a government is best that governs least. What I'm not pleased about is how much of my money they are pissing away on what amounts to a petty turf war between parties with very little hope of any achievement.
The Loser of the week however is Hillary Clinton... An ad campaign this week on her campaign web site features a video of her and her husband Bill talking about selections on a juke box at a greasy spoon diner. They get dirty looks from the diner attendee's (as well they should). Then Hillary who barely manages to mask her contempt for being in such a common establishment, hints at a selection she has made... Her campaign song. The sketch as I'm told is a spoof on the Soprano's finale' (haven't seen it as I'm working my way through on DVD). Which for a seasoned criminal such as Hillary is appropriate enough, but the real fun is when you find out what the song is.
"You and I" by Canadian Celine Dion.
That's right. Hillary like many D's thinks that the answers for our country's questions lie... In CANADA....
Hill. thinks there are no Americans who can encompass her goals in a race to be the next AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
Just like the queen of the D's to assume that we here in the US are to dumb to understand the direction our country should go.
Seriously... What a cunt.
Besides if you are going to pick a Canadian... Hello... Shatner. Duh

Here it is. Proof positive that the Eco-Alarmist political action groups are intentionally targeting underage children with their propagandist tree-hugger pornography. Worst of all, innocent young Canadians, who of course stand no chance of ever possessing the political clout to affect change.
"Yes students should look at both sides on an issue and learn to judge for themselves. But there are times to do this and times to stop." --an unnamed Canadian school teacher
I'll bet the government run schools aren't presenting arguments from
Aware: (according to Merriam-Webster)
Main Entry: aware
Etymology: Middle English iwar, from Old English gewær, from ge- (associative prefix) + wær wary -- more at CO-, WARY
1 archaic : WATCHFUL, WARY
2 : having or showing realization, perception, or knowledge
- aware·ness noun
Aware: (according to Global Warming Alarmists)
Compulsory and unquestioning agreement with a certain dictated set of ideas without the presentation of any dissenting or even differing systems of data.
When a political group claims to 'raise awareness' what they are saying is that no person who examines the same set of data, or any other available data (about which said political group is either unaware or uninterested), could possibly reach a different conclusion, and thusly should not be bothered with an exercise of open discourse, and free thought. Simply accept the opinion of said political group because as you all know they are smarter and much more well read than you could ever hope to be. 'Raising awareness' is an old trick in the realm of public debate in which you 'prove' your point by presupposing it in the basis of the argument. This is a trick well practiced by grifters and con-men in such scams as the paranoia scam, the snake oil scam, and many forms of long and short investment cons, and of course one of the greatest cons of all time The United States Congress.
Make no mistake about it, no matter the true nature of the scientific facts involved, those that seek to close this debate with a cry for action and action alone, those that seek to stifle free and open discourse are no more than sycophantic perverts.
To put it another way Dale Carnegie once said
"Fear not those who argue, but those who dodge."

really don't know that America which is the main part of the country
the Red-State America which is so evangelical, where people really do vote their religion
who really don't like a lot of modernity, they really don't like the way everything has gotten so
secular." Chris Mathews on Jerry Falwell's death (MSNBC)
See I was almost caught by this statement. I almost took offense at the idea that because I'm from Oregon, a coastal state, I couldn't possibly understand middle America. But Ahhh no, I'm not fooled by you Chris Mathews. I know what what you are really doing is mocking the flyover states and their cute little religion. Mocking the way they shy away from the modernity and cling to the fraying edges of an old way, in the face of the overpowering and unbeatable winds of change. As if Iowa was fighting to keep the internet away.
I will remind you friends, not to celebrate the death of any man. The loss of Jerry Falwell will mark a significant drop in direct mail fund-raising activities for a good many organizations of varying ranges. The vast majority of organizations opposed by the Dr. Falwell have suffered only success as a result. Just ask black South Africans, or Larry Flynt how they're doing and how they like freedom.
Perhaps Dr. Falwell's greatest achievement in life was to create and rally the largest opposition to Christianity in this country's recent history. He sought out any person that he could possibly make an enemy of the church. He made opponents of so many that previously didn't care about Christianity. Way to go Jerry.

Standouts from the party boringness include Ron Paul who appeals highly to pre-Reagan conservatives and libertarians and he wants to repeal all kinds of ugly taxes and move us to a sound monetary policy. Oh and who doesn't stand a chance in the primary. Gov. Tommy Thompson who is both well informed and well spoken but will never be presidential. Thompson's the kind of man that would have been great as a candidate 60 years ago. Now he's a VP candidate.
None of these guys is going to be a heavy hitter in a general election. And I'll tell you another thing, Newt Gingrich is not a contender either, whether you like him or not he's not the answer to the R's woes.
Nancy and the Governator seen with Mitt at the end... Hmmmm
It's almost like a group audition in front of Nancy. I hope she has better taste than these guys.

I do wonder though this week with an article in the New York Post suggesting that Rosie O'Donnell may be replaced with Rosanne Bar, if perhaps The View is showing it's stripes a little. What can we surmise from a predilection towards obnoxious, morbidly obese, women who have proven themselves to be weak comics. Maybe they just didn't want to have to replace the enormous chair they bought for Rosie's HUGE ass and bigger head.

I have two things and two things only to say here.
My heart and thoughts are with all 33 of the families that have been so viciously torn apart by this disgusting act. I only hope that some day they may find peace in the solemn knowledge that a world mourns with them, and that each of us feels a little more personal responsibility for interactions with our fellow man.
Also for anyone who has ever argued that people do not need guns because the police are there to protect them, I'll remind you that the police in this case, who did their job to the best of their ability, were unable to stop this horrific mess, even being involved 2 hours before the event. No phone call to the police would have stopped this madman during his rampage. The only thing that could have stopped him would be 230 grains of 45acp hollow point goodness, that the now deceased citizens in the classrooms were prohibited by law from having.
You cannot anticipate the acts of madmen, you cannot expect to prevent all madmen from availing themselves of the tools for destruction. If they can't find guns, they find bombs, bombs made from everyday items around the home, if they cant find bombs they find another way. Perhaps they stretch the killing out over more time, but they will find a way to kill.

Imus is out and Sharpton claims this is just the beginning. With backing from such vicious language Nazi's like the Anti Defamation League, how can things go wrong from here.
I had the pleasure of working with some people from the ADL in
What struck me about our meetings with ADL employees was that they were not very interested in having us inform students about the events surrounding the murder of 11 million people. What they were interested in was the language we used to talk about it. They insisted that we should never use scary words or language. They didn't want us to alarm children, to inform children, to teach anything about the politics of hate. What they wanted us to talk about was how children talked about things. They wanted us to tell children that the holocaust shows us that it's not ok to tell dirty jokes, or say anything that's not nice, or use words that identify groups of people. As if Hitler would have been stopped if less people were overheard saying 'so three Jews walk into a bar'.
With that in mind I wonder how Al Sharpton can spend any time talking about the statements of Don Imus when he repeatedly defended and endorsed
Since Sharpton is so adamant about policing speech perhaps he should talk about his use of the term "diamond merchant" as a slur against Hasidic Jews in Crown Heights, 1991. Maybe he'll discuss it when he finally apologizes to the parents of Yankel Rosenbaum for his role in the riots that ended in the stabbing death of their son. I guess it's more repulsive for a white man to criticize a group of black college basketball players that it would be for an angry mob of black Americans to chant "kill the Jew" while slaughtering an innocent rabbinical student in the street.
Maybe he could stick it in with his apology for repeatedly involving himself in cases that wrongly accuse white men of rape, and then ignoring the results when they are proved innocent.
Al Sharpton is a racist anti-Semite who has repeatedly incited riotous violent behavior against people based on their race.
But hey, Imus called somebody a name on his comedy show. What an asshole.

Let me start by saying that I don't believe in interventionist foreign policy, specifically when it comes to military force. I think that it is seldom in our best interest to devote our military forces to the internal issues of another nation. We also do not live in a political or historical vacuum so lets not get all testy and think that this opinion applies to every situation with the same vigor.
There, that being said I think it's about time to see a great big tattoo in the shape of a flaming sword where Tehran used to be. Turn the SAS loose and see who walks back out.
I'm not sure what's going on in the halls of the British leadership but if 15 of their sailors really were within Iraqi waters when they were taken hostage by the Iranians, then it's time to turn
Ahmadinejad's house into a pile of pink fucking gravel. Maybe this is why I'm not a world leader but I think somebody needs to pull a good old-fashioned mafia style Kadafi compound move. We haven't heard much from that little prick since we liquidated some of his family for him.
Don't go over and live there and try to change people. Just show up, administer a swift, sharp, bloody spanking, grab the hostages, leave a flower on the pillow and get the fuck back out.
If I ruled the world (ho ho ho), then this kind of shit would come with a three word answer; 'Carpet Fucking Bomb' assholes, ok.
But the Brits don't listen to me very often; at least not when it comes to war and dental hygiene.
Here's the story as I see it.
-Wednesday the 21st Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatens to engage in illegal nuclear action if sanctions are passed. "If they want to treat us with threats and enforcement of coercion and violence, undoubtedly they must know that the Iranian nation and authorities will use all their capacities to strike enemies that attack."
-Friday the 23rd Iran announces Ahmadinejad canceled trip to speak before the UN Security Council
-Saturday the 24th the UN security council imposes new sanctions on Iran after they again refused to suspend their nuclear enrichment program. Member nations including Britain
-Ahmadinejad is quoted saying that people "seeking to impose sanctions against Iran will suffer a greater damage themselves"
-Wednesday the 28th Iranian soldiers enter Iraqi waters and forcibly kidnap 15 British sailors
-Iranian officials initially report the location of the British soldiers as in Iraqi waters when they were captured, then released a new and different location after British officials pointed that fact out to them
Anyone who doesn't think this action was deliberate and premeditated on the part of the Iranian leadership should contact me regarding some beneficial real estate arrangements I have to offer.

I just can't figure out the math...
- 435 Congressmen
- 100 Senators
- 12 Supreme Court Justices
- 1 President
- 3000 Senate Staffers*
- 5220 Congressional Staffers*
- 400 White House Staffers *
- 16 Cabinet Rank Members
- 65,099 DC Public School Students
That leaves 95,717 people which must account for employees of cabinet offices and their respective idiotic departmental wastes of money; Also the DC based IRS employees.
I wonder if anyone is surprised to find that DC is chalk full of Illiterate morons... I know I'm not. We elected most of the higher ranking ones.

Like her recent comments about Hillary...
"Her aping of a black Southern accent from the pulpit was so inept and patronizing that it should get a Razzie Award for Worst Performance of the Year. At times, it approached the Southern Gothic burlesque of Bette Davis chewing up the scenery in "Hush ... Hush, Sweet Charlotte." Does Hillary Clinton have a stable or coherent sense of self? Or is everything factitious, mimed and scripted (like her flipping butch and femme masks) for expediency?"
"All that Sunday, network radio news, for example, betrayed its liberal bias by running clips of only her noblest phrases. Heaven help any Republican who had made so lurid a gaffe! Fortunately, alternative media now exist: On his radio show that night, Matt Drudge ran huge, hilarious swatches of prophesyin' Hillary camping it up."
We must all remind ourselves that Camille is an outspoken Dem.
Also she had this to say about W.
"I've always felt that liberals' hatred of Bush is misplaced. I feel pity for him -- he is a genuinely tragic figure who made the wrong choices and destroyed the promise of his presidency. His sense of divine election and destiny, a defense mechanism that allows him to survive that crushing job, is of course positively dangerous for the country. At this point, it seems Bush's persona will never mature in office. As he blustered with dangling arms and stiff cowboy legs to the podium during last week's South American junket, I felt embarrassed at his lack of diplomatic courtesy and simple savoir faire."
But perhaps the most romantic thing she's said to me this month...
"This kind of outreach to expose and remedy injustice represents the finest spirit of leftism, a practical, compassionate activism -- not the pretentious postmodernist jargon and sanctimonious attitudinizing that still pass for leftism among too many college faculty. Capitalism, which spawned modern individualism as well as the emancipated woman who can support herself, is essentially Darwinian. It expands any society's sum total of wealth and radically raises the standard of living, but it leaves the poor and weak without a safety net. Capitalism needs the ethical counter-voice of leftism to keep it honest. But leftists must be honest in turn about what we owe to capitalism -- without which Western women would have no professional jobs to go to but would be stuck doing laundry by hand and stooping over pots on the hearth fire all day long."

The proposed IRS budget for 2008
11.1 Billion Dollars
(That's 11 billion dollars we pay them just for taking OUR money.)
HUD up 7 percent
Treasury up 7 percent
Homeland Security non-defense up 9.5 percent (what exactly is homeland security non-defense spending? Oh I know, that's the billions spent listening to our phone calls and "protecting" our borders from imported low cost labor.)
Health and Human Services up 32 Billion
Justice up over a billion dollars (one can only assume mostly in the loving attempt to incarcerate more villainous potheads and those caught driving while dark skinned... Oh wait the NYPD still shoots the 'unarmed persons of notable African decent', don't they?... Well more money for bullets then.)
This is from a Repugnant president, not a Demoncrat
But what do the D's have to say this week?
"I want to take those profits..."
--In reference to oil company record profit announcement. (This week BP gave half a billion dollars to fund a Berkley program developing alternative energy sources.)
"if I had been president in 2002 I would not have started this war"
--A war she voted for
"we are going to provide.. universal health care to every single American"
--remind me again who "we" is... Oh right "we" is what people say when they mean 'from each according to his ability to each according to his need'. (Karl Marx, in case you had trouble placing the quote because you've never read anything, ever.)
"We should have brokerage houses report the capital gains that people are incurring because we're losing billions and billions of dollars in tax revenue,"
"We'll have to raise taxes. The only way you can pay for a healthcare plan that cost anywhere from $90 to $120 billion is there has to be a revenue source,"
Steal, steal steal... Take it all take it all and if they wont give it to us we'll make a law so their broker has to spy for us.
Kalifornia Assemblyman Lloyd 'leave the lights off' Levine
Has proposed a ban on incandescent light bulbs which he says "were first developed almost 125 years ago, and since that time they have undergone no major modifications,”. (Which oddly enough I am specifically qualified to say is patently untrue.)
Industry leader Osram says the following about incandescent lamps.
'In 1854 the German clockmaker Johann Heinrich Goebel invented the incandescent lamp. Thomas Alva Edison took the idea and developed it further, leading to a breakthrough in 1879.
Artificial light still hung by a thread a delicate carbon thread. OSRAM replaced it by a much more stable metal filament. Since then, lamps have been continually improved and new principles of generating light have been developed. And new materials have been used. The technical innovations over the last few years have had two main objectives better economy and minimal environmental impact.
The incandescent lamp, however, is still one of the most common artificial light sources. With its warm cozy light it creates a pleasant atmosphere. Wherever this is needed the incandescent lamp is still the first choice."
Incandescent lights provide a quality that is unmatched and difficult if not impossible to replicate in non-incandescent forms. But why would the quality of a product you buy be a factor?Incidentally without the incandescent light many many industries (including mine) would not exist.
Last but not least (for now)
Two men were arrested in Boston for inciting bomb scares, even though out of the thousands of people across the country who saw their ad campaign only Boston Cops were stupid enough to think they were bombs.
ARRESTED for the stupidity of the police... So I guess that's where the new Justice Dept. money will go.
Honestly every time I read the news this week I got the eery sensation I was backstage at the circus watching a clown violate a little girl.
Kill them all...

I laughed. I cried. It was better than CATS.
