The snow finally ended here and the sun is shining. I began shoveling though most of the snow seems to have blown away. Some spots are clear while others have a foot. It all depends on it it blew away or where it wound up.
Sen. Jim Bunning threw another no hitter today. This time he struck out all the unemployed people whose compensation expires Sunday. He single handedly killed an extension while complaining he was missing a Kentucky basketball game. When confronted on his obstinacy his reply was “tough shit.” My guess is that’s what he also expects these jobless folks to eat too. Considering his support for the failed economic policies which caused their predicament perhaps all the unemployed people out there could mail him some of the waste from their dogs.
Blackwater first tried to hide their horrendous record and reputation by changing names. Then they created a blind subsidiary to gain government contracts fraudulently. There is no end to their treachery. The real problem here isn’t Blackwater though but the privatization of government. Since when did we decide to privatize national security and make it a “for profit” enterprise?
How low can the Catholic Church go? In Brazil they are furious over an abortion for a 9 year old girl. She was raped and impregnated by her step father and instead of being outraged by the molestation and rape the Church is upset about the abortion. What more do we need to know about their warped priorities? When I stop and remember how billions of people take their moral guidance from such folks it makes me shudder.
Sen. Bob Casey still hasn’t signed on to Sen. Bennet’s letter supporting the use of reconciliation to pass health insurance reform. Twenty four Senators have signed on thus far.
The Canadian women’s hockey team got into the Olympic “spirits” a bit too publicly after winning the gold medal. They celebrated by swigging beer and champagne on the ice while sucking on stogies. Real class…
Congressman Jason Altmire, an erstwhile Democrat, was rated as right of center in new ratings issued today. His staff sent a press release bragging about the honor. Would someone please inform Jason that Democrats aren’t supposed to vote right of center? That actually makes him a Republican. There is some consolation, when he gets voted out of office this year he can drive Melissa Hart’s old VW home from the Congressional parking garage where it remains parked since she held the seat.
