That Was the Plan All Along

This article pretty much validates what I argued before the election regarding the fallout of both Obama and Hillary's medical insurance plans. Then again, I think socialized medicine WAS the plan all along. I cannot fathom why anyone thinks this is a good idea after hearing from folks in England and Canada, but it persists. These countries are trying to weave their way out of the system and here we are trying to dive right into it. What?

Also, here's a bit on the investigation of the assassination of Hariri and how the world seems to want to avoid dealing with the real responsible party: turning a blind eye.

I've decided to put my stress into knitting. At this rate, I will knit enough scarves for the citizens of a small European country within the next six months.

This was a pretty good article: Taxpayer Field. Fitting, it would seem.

So, the big automakers CEO are willing to be paid $1 per year. I guess if you make millions per year you have a little saved for those lean times. I guess they also don't want to be the guys who killed the big three either. Not good on the resume.

As for the terror attacks in Mumbai, didn't they hear we've elected Obama? Wasn't that the cure for the world's bad opinion of us? No? Well hell, why'd we bother?

Looks like GM, Ford and Chrysler aren't going to get their allowance just yet:

John Boehner talking sense

More on the bailout

and how conservatives dropped the ball.

Al Franken's Hollywood Ending

Because completely creaming the Republicans isn't enough. Now Franken and friends are finding votes in trunks of cars.

Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and gosh darn it people SHOULD HAVE voted for me.

Capitalism

With the economy in its current state, it's so easy to blame capitalism and make the mistake of moving backward.

Free Markets are still a good thing.

Next in Line

Now the US automakers are lining up for a handout. Why shouldn't they be bailed out too? Because they have caused their own problems and they won't get fixed if they get a government check.

No GM, No Soup for YOU!

Barack n' Roll

So begins the building of the new administration. Rahm Emanuel. What a lovely aggressively partisan pick. I'm sure he'll be good at the job, but Rahmbo? Not holding out a lot of hope for that bipartisan utopia the O man promised us. Larry Summers as Treasury Secretary? Got to give that some more thought. I just get the feeling that Our Lady Queen of Botox (Pelosi) and Harry Reid will convince Obama to take the majority and run with it and not bother with any pesky reaching across the aisles.

The Blame Game

Now is the time on Sprockets when we blame. Sarah Palin, of course. You know, it's really ridiculous and pointless now. Why are anonymous McCain workers determined to make sure she has no political future outside Alaska? And the "telephone" aspect of it is really ridiculous. Earlier today it was that she didn't know that NAFTA included US, Canada, Mexico. Now Chris Matthews just tells us she didn't know North America consisted of Canada, US and Mexico. Oh and she answers the door to her hotel in a terry cloth robe! Or maybe it was just a towel! Give it a day and she'll be naked with pasties. Time to move on folks. Let her go home and bone up and if the lady wants to try again in 4 years, so be it. She didn't destroy McCain's chances. He didn't have a consistent strong campaign message and when the economy tanked his weakness was brought to the forefront. Then it would have been better to have Romney as VP, but hindsight it 20/20. Here's a message to conservatives: time to regroup and think about the MESSAGE, not who to crucify. At this point Republicans are basically spend-o-rama Democrats, but with more GOD. Time to get back to small government and a smaller footprint in the world at large.

Unnecessary Roughness

You know, no matter how heated elections may get, sometimes people get too personal and take things too seriously. I know that it's important to pick the right person to run the country, but I also don't think we need to drop comments like "if that b*tch gets elected, I'm leaving the country." Yes, I heard that one today at Kenwood mall outside their little getoutthevote type booth. Really, no one's leaving the country. Heck, Alec Baldwin is still here although I do wish he'd leave. 30 Rock is funny, but he can still go. A friend referred me to this commentary and I found it appropriate:

Who Hates Sarah Palin?

I reserve some judgment on the woman until I hear her debate. Then we'll really see what the substance is.

First Post

Just a drive-by post to get that mandatory first post out of the way. TGIF.
