Bush the Fiscal Conservative, Now That’s Comedy…

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Ed Brayton says it best:

“In other words, Bush has handed us and our children a $3.5 trillion We Owe Them, which can only be paid for with tax increases in the future. There is one iron law of budgets, repeat it after me: If you are running deficits, there is no such thing as a tax cut; there is only a tax delay. To continue to increase spending without paying the taxes to cover it is the very height of irresponsibility. Oh, and that’s not to mention that issuing all that debt has given foreign governments, China in particular, a multi-trillion dollar leverage point over us. If you ran a corporation that way, you would be in prison. Our government does this year after year and we return 90% of them to their jobs every two years. Wake up, America. You’re being screwed and they aren’t using any lube.”

Maybe We Should Fear Something Else…

Bill Maher says it best…

“This Halloween, every time you see something that’s supposed to scare you, like a skeleton or a severed head or the ingredients in diet pudding … take a moment and think about fear: What are you afraid of; what should you be afraid of. What’s really scary this Halloween is that the same group of idea-free losers who won the last presidential election could win the next one by making us afraid of the wrong things. Which is why this year for Halloween, I’m going as something truly horrifying: a melting polar ice cap.”

Police State at it Again

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

A poor soul of a trucker,Anastasio Prieto, who doesn’t use banks had nearly $24k in his truck and was stopped and asked by Law Enforcement if he had any illegal contraband or cash in excess of $10,000; he told them he had the cash.  The DEA then seized it and said they will gladly return it if he, yes he, can prove that it’s his and isn’t from Drug Trafficking…  Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?  This man just got robbed by our government and fortunately the ACLU has taken up his suit against the DEA.  May the DEA get screwed!  More at Dispatches from the Culture Wars. 

The End of the American Republic

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

After gaining more authority for warrantless surveillance, Dear Leader is proposing even more extra-constitutional powers for the Executive Branch.  Between Signing Statements and little Judiciary or Congressional Oversight of his “anti-terror” activities, Dear Leader is practically a Dictator.  When will Congress Impeach this man and his Administration?  How much more power can Dear Leader grab under this “unitary executive” bullshit?  Why do the American People allow this?
