We’ll all be eating dog food soon, so might as well get used to it. This is why the corruptocrats who run our country exclude food and gas when they calculate the rate of inflation. They know that most Americans are too busy with their finger in their own pie watching Glee to be bothered with discerning the difference.
The catastrophe in Japan continues. You may have noticed a lack of urgent coverage here, and that’s for several reasons. First, unlike so many other really important bloggers, we don’t claim to be a news site. A more important reason is that, besides the fact that thousands of people have died and entire towns have been reduced to rubble, the details of the nuclear crisis are truly unknown. We can speculate all day long, but there are too many conflicting reports to jump/not jump off a bridge. What we can do is donate to relief efforts and pray for the victims, if you’re so inclined.
Needless to say, with a world economy already teetering on the brink, this was the last thing Japan, or anybody else, needed.
Gas prices continue to skyrocket. Even chubby-chasing President Clifford says that he is in support of some new drilling. He also wants us to start drilling for our own oil. (rim shot)
The country-club Republicans in congress continue to demonstrate their spinelessness as the Donks have made them their bitches on “spending cuts” yet again. There is no urgency from either party on spending cuts, which is yet another reason why we are doomed to an economic catastrophe.
There are a small minority of Republicans in the House and Senate who get it, but their GOP brothers and sisters are too gutless to do what needs to be done. We need more a lot more Governor Walkers and a lot fewer Senator Alexanders.
In other, far less important news, the upcoming NFL season is in doubt. Apparently being paid millions to play a game is equal to slavery in this day and age. I love pro football, but I’d be fine with letting these overpaid asses sit at home for a year while we watch some XFL-style scabs beat each other up on the RedZone.
Gotta go. Lunch is ready.
BREAKING! COOTUS is fi’n to fill out his brackets! My money is on the top seed.
MORE(ON) GOP COWARDS: 54 House Republicans are ready for prime time. The rest? Sucking eggs all day.
â€œI am convinced that a vote for the CR is a vote to not fight against ObamaCare,â€ Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann said in a statement encouraging other members to join her in opposition. â€œThe time has come to take a stand.â€
After the vote, Florida Rep. Allen West â€” a Tea Party-backed freshman member who voted against the measure â€” said he couldnâ€™t support the bill in good faith.
â€œPeople have to be able to sleep with themselves. I know that I can look myself in the mirror and explain my vote very well to my constituents back in South Florida,â€ West said. â€œWe have got to start making some of the hard choices and decisions. Thatâ€™s adult leadership.â€
