Well, Blow Me Down!

poop deckThe Texas legislature, a governing body currently owned and operated by the GOP, is fast-tracking a massive tax break for Texans who need to buy a yacht, right in the teeth of a $27 billion dollar budget shortfall.

I know this sounds onerous but it's actually great news for Texas millionaires as they can now drift lazily around the sunny Carribbean, sparing themselves the dreary sight of long lines of laid-off teachers and old people being tossed into the street as the Legislature makes drastic cust to both education and social services. Deep, deep into the heart of Texas.

Is it any wonder Superman is renouncing his U.S. citizenship.



john boehnerFebruary 10, 2011: "We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner.

So far the list of GOP accomplishments for 2011 is:

(1) Attempted curtailing of abortion rights.
(2) Attempted defunding of Planned Parenthood.
(3) Attempted defunding of NPR.
(4) Investigating Muslims.
(5) Declaring English as America's Official Language.
(6) Reaffirming "In God We Trust". Yawn.
(7) Challenging AARP's tax-exempt status.
(8) Approved defunct funding for failed religious schools.
(9) Attempt to destroy Medicaid.
(10) Attempt to destroy Planned Parenthood
(11) Shutting down the government
(12) Attempt to destroy the EPA.
(13) Attempting to eliminate financial counseling.
(14) Passed a House budget that gives $4 trillion in tax cuts to the rich.
(15) Spend $500,000 to discriminate against gays.
(16) Continued toadying for the rich.
(17) Pretending the deficit is to blame for slow job growth.
(18) De-funded SETI. (ARGH!!!!!!!)
(19) Tried to kill Chrysler two years ago... which is now going to pay back all its government loans.
(20) The Judicial Branch of the GOP, the Supreme Court, votes 5-4 to deny consumer class-action suits.
(21) Redefining rape. Yes, redefining rape.

Nope. No job creation here. Move along. Move along.

I'll keep adding to this list until the Republican House does something to create jobs. I unhappily predict this is gonna be one lonnnnng list.


Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? Bill O'Reilly claimed that waterboarding gave us the inside skinny on bin Laden's whereabouts... until Donald Rumsfeld (Yes, Donald "Known Unlknowns" Rumsfeld) sets him straight.

I'm sorry. I realize that the public education system is in a shambles but there's no reliable information that says it can be prudently mended by simply throwing money at it.
