We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In the last 2 1/2 years, we’ve had over 200 presidential talks about jobs, and now there’s going to be yet another one. It’s not just an ordinary one, but another giant showpiece, a speech to a joint session of Congress, and coincidentally at the same time as a previously scheduled GOP presidential debate. Congress is probably going to be told, as it has been over the last 2 1/2 years, that failure to enact this, that, or the other thing is irresponsible and inexcusable. But according to reports, there’s nothing new in the speech, certainly nothing that could be effective. Moreover, this latest rehash of same-old, same-old comes from a guy with support from Independents in the 30′s and whom over one in four Democrats want replaced as the top of the 2012 ticket. Even with the media carrying this guy’s water, we can’t see how this is anything other than a formula for electoral catastrophe. If you disagree, educate us please.
This “In” button will be distributed to all those who view his speech:
Zombie capitalism: No, You Can't Invest Like Warren Buffett: His Bank of America deal is a bargain no ordinary investor could get.
Zombie Terrorism: Abdul Hakiim converted to Islam, wore long robes, dreamed of paradise; He was arrested in July for trying to enter Britain with bomb-making guides and al-Qaida propaganda. "But his motivations remain a mystery"
So, the vice president goes to China—and if that sounds like the beginning of a bad comedy routine, it’s because our current vice president has made it one. The man is a walking pratfall, a clown of the tongue-tied, stumbling kind, and only the media’s determined effort to shield the Obama administration from laughter has kept Joe Biden’s miscues, misunderstandings, and mispronouncements from becoming our long-running national joke.
[In] the state of Texas, we’ve created an economy here that leads the nation in job creation…What’s dumb is to oversee an economy that has lost that many millions of jobs, to put unemployment numbers over his four years will stay probably at 9 percent, to downgrade the credit of this good country, to put fiscal policies in place that were a disaster in the ‘30s and try them again in the 2000s – that’s what I consider to be the definition of dumb.
Finally!!!!! I told you folks that zombies were taking over eating brains but did you believe me? No!! Well there's your proof - the zombie apocalypse is here. Get out your shotguns - its gonna be a long campaign.
