Just Another Random Monday v.8.17.09

My apologies for the multitude of USAToday links and the rather limited range of topics. I started a new job back on the 10th and have been in training out of state and therefore have had limited internet access. I haven’t had the time or resources to peruse the web as I usually do, and have instead been tearing out relevant articles from the USATodays that have been left at the door of my hotel room every morning.

* – this is just going to ruin Family Guy for all of the liberals out there.

* – First Burger King. Then Hardees. Now Baby’s Badass Burgers.

* – farewell to a legend.

* – RIP, Captain Michael Scott Speicher. May your family now have the peace it so greatly deserves.

* – are you f#*king kidding me?!

* – remember the incident from St Louis last week? The one where the SEIU thugs assaulted a black man? Well, turns out one of the people trying to incite people into precipitous behavior was one of Rep. Russ Carnahan’s (D – MO) staffers.

* – yep, your elected officials really care about what you think, folks…

and this was Jackson Lee’s excuse…

Oh, PLEASE!

* – remember all those fancy new jets the Fed was gonna buy? Seems they thought better of it.

* – remember Cap & Trade? (Don’t forget about it, because once health care is resolved – one way or the other – C&T is next). It’s going to cost $8 billion over the next 10 years just “to pay for the expanded federal bureaucracy.”

* – based on all the attention she’s being given, this would be the Left’s worst nightmare.

* – oh, and exactly what the hell is up with all of these czars? You people do realize that they are held accountable to nobody, right? They are not confirmed by the Senate or the House. They have no “job description,” so to speak, delineated by the Constitution. So, WTF?

* – Rep. John Boehner’s (R-OH) op-ed from August 13th’s edition of USAToday on the health care issue.

* – let’s change things up just a bit for a moment. Here’s an interesting piece on believing in evolution and God at the same time.

* – so, just where have the 15% of the stimulus plan funds that we have spent so far actually gone?

Oh, and btw, why have we only spent 15% so far? I thought the economy was an emergency. A crisis. That if we didn’t do something NOW, all was lost.

Did I miss something?

* – let’s go back to beating health care like a dead horse, shall we? So, while the current situation “threatens to quadruple (italics mine) the size of last year’s  federal budget deficit,” people actually think it’s a good idea to spend $1 trillion (which, btw, we don’t have) over the next 10 years? 

Incidentally, did you catch that graph to the left of the main article? The White House estimates that by the end of the fiscal year the country will be $1.841 trillion in debt!

I’m sure that’s all the fault of GW, Cheney, and Haliburton.

I also found it interesting that from 2004 to 2007 GW actually shrank the deficit from $413 billion to $161 billion. I don’t remember the press ever talking about that, do you?

Weird.

* – anyway, I guess that just hasn’t been the August ’09 the Prez was hoping for, huh?

  1. Well duh. Didn’t you know that Cheney is the reason the seas are rising? Puhleeze.

    And if I still had the body for it (ah, the ’80s…) I think it’d be time to investigate franchising that burger thang.
