Worst part of economic stimulus package

Gosh darn it! Section 1604 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (aka Economic Stimulus) states

None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available in this Act may be used by any State or local government, or any private entity, for any casino or other gambling establishment, aquarium, zoo, golf course, or swimming pool.

How are we going to stimulate the economy without building any of these items essential to the country’s infrastructure?????

Bush is a shoe dodger as well as a draft dodger


If I had known about this, I would have donate some shoes to the cause!

Also, Bush says that they were size 10. I guess he’s not as blind as I thought if he can distinguish the size of objects hurled at him. Also, were the men’s shoes or women’s shoes? Inquiring minds want to know.

Looney Illinois governor

I didn’t think it was possible… we finally have a politician with more screws loose in his head than George W. Bush. Of course, I am talking about the (soon to be ex) governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich. How on earth could a man who knows that he is already under investigation for fraud be so careless to give investigators tons of ammunition to convict him. What a freakin’ nutcase.

I wonder what is in the Illinois governor’s house that causes governors to commit crime. There have already been three Illinois governors convicted in the last 35 years. My advice to the next governor is to not move into that house (and if you are going to get busted for something, do something fun like ex-New York governor Elliot Spitzer…)

George W. Bush’s missions accomplished

This is the cover of the current issue of “The American Conservative”.  It is also the most accurate magazine cover that I have ever seen. Obviously they left out  few things, but there wasn’t enough room on the cover.

Let’s see… liberals (obviously) hate him, true conservatives don’t like his deficit spending and his meddling with civil liberties.. how the heck did he get a 25% approval rating???

Obama-mania

If the reaction on social networking sites is representative of the country as a whole (and it may not be), then I suspect that many people will be calling in “sick” to work tomorrow morning. There are so people on Plurk and Twitter that are overjoyed to be getting a new president who is completely different from Bush that one would think that the United States had just won World II again.

Since the Democrats have increased their control of both houses of Congress, it will be interesting as to how long a honeymoon the American public will give President-elect Obama to get us out of our current economic mess. Good luck, Mr. President – you’re gonna need it.
