Congressional Hypocrisy

From Dilbert, wouldn't this be hilarious:

Too funny!

Foobs Yet Again

How many times can American taxpayers be chumps, let us recount the ways, in chronological order:

Bailout and Dividends

Taxpayers are Chumps Cont.

Taxpayers Continue to Be Treated as Chumps

Taxpayers are Foobs

And yet again. Read The New York Times, I Ponied Up for Sheryl Crow?

We foobs let Northern Trust of Chicago, "which got $1.5 billion in bailout money and then laid off 450 workers, flew hundreds of clients and employees to Los Angeles last week and treated them to four days of posh hotel rooms, salmon and filet mignon dinners, music concerts, a PGA golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club with Mercedes shuttle rides and Tiffany swag bags . . . had a lavish dinner at the Ritz Carlton on Wednesday with a concert by Chicago (at a $100,000 fee); rented a private hangar at the Santa Monica Airport on Thursday for another big dinner with a gig by Earth, Wind & Fire, and closed down the House of Blues on Sunset Strip on Saturday (at a cost of $50,000) for a dinner and serenade by Sheryl Crow," stick it to us again.

So, how many time? Not once, not twice, not thrice, but more. (FYI: Once, twice, thrice...what comes next? Nothing comes next, as there are no more terms in this sequence.)

Home Sweet Home

Would the world be a better place without America? Think about it. Then read The New York Times, Paging Uncle Sam.

Since the economic crisis, it has become clear that America plays an important role in the world.

May America be worthy of God's blessing.

What is the Fiscally Responsible Thing to Do?

I've blog before about Republi-Con hypocrisy on federal deficits and debt. But in the mist of the economic mess left by bankrupt Republi-con ideology, what is the fiscally responsible thing to do?

Listen to Robert Reich's thoughts on the matter at NPR, Marketplace, Reducing ratio of debt is the real issue.

I Scream In Honor of Past and Current Presidents

Another email from Mike, General Manager of 1330 AM WEBY:

And in honor of the new President:

Baracky Road - - - half chocolate and half vanilla surrounded by fruits and nuts.

Got any humorous suggestions to add to the list.

The NOT Headline: Dumb Politician Has Lost Touch With the Common Man

An email from Mike, General Manager of 1330 AM WEBY, regarding alleged media bias:

"Biden is dumber than McCain.

Remember how the media portrayed McCain as such an idiot for saying "The Google"?

Well now Biden wants to know "The Website Number". Uh, hey, Joe, do you mean "The Web address?"

What an idiot!

I won't hold my breath waiting for media coverage of this blunder.


First, I don't remember that "the media portrayed McCain as such an idiot for saying 'The Google,'" or even the statement by McCain Must have missed that one.

But what would Mike proposes as the headline: "Politician Dumber Than Dirt" or Politician Has Lost Touch With the Common Man?"

Give me a break, that is not news, everyone knows that.
