I Can't Make This Stuff Up

I just found this after posting today's entry. This is from an Obama rally. I will suggest the title "Dyslexics Untie for Omaba".

If you have a better idea, leave a comment. Meanwhile......
Politics is very much like taxes - everybody is against them, or everybody is for them as long as they don't apply to him” - Fiorello La Guardia

Short blog again. This article on the Commonwealth of Virginia says it all.

There is one thing I can add that produced many a guffaw at the hypocrisy of "progressives" (leftists no longer like being called 'liberals'; that's hate speech now, I guess) over the tax cuts for the "evil, putrid, vile rich" during the first Bush term. Every leftist celebrity, which means the overwhelming majority of the cult of narcissism, got on just about every afternoon television yackety-yack show to tell us all how much they a) thought George W Bush was stupid, b) also considered him an evil genious, c) thought these tax cuts were only for the "rich" and d) were going to show their compassion for the poor, pitiful poor by what charities they were going to give the sum and total of this hideous tax return to. Oprah, Rosie and company couldn't help but just fawn over what wonderful humanitarians these self-absorbed mental midgets were!

I had to point out two things of curiousity. First, if it were not for the unconscionable tax cuts, would they have denied these new-found charities the same contributions? Secondly, if the tax cuts are the root problem, then logically, they should not have shown their disdain with the idea by donating the funds to charities. Instead, to prove their point and retain some modicum of credibility and consistency of thought, they should have remitted the checks directly BACK to the U.S. Treasury department, since the theory behind their opposition is that the government knows better what to do with that money than the individuals who actually earned it.

I do not recall one of them returning the "undeserved" funds for which they felt so much guilt. But hey, it availed them the opportunity to look oh-so-generous and take a swipe at fiscal conservatism simultaneously.

And completely unrelated, aren't we all supposed to be poisoned with dangerous arsenic levels in our drinking water by now?
