Give Me Big Hunk & Banana

No, I’m not referring to Graham and Kasich, dark hoss* candidates for President. That is something to think about, however, it is way to early in the paragraph for digressions, but I will leave that to you to decide, what do you think, which Republican is seriously positioning themselves for a run for President, going to Europe, having affairs with their hair? Wait, wrong partay, which one is seriously shining shoes and glad handing national park and off shore drilling permits, not for the oil oil, but for the political capital of exploiting one goo into two? Well, stuff like that. So should I digress?

OK then, moving right along to health care reform, which apparently is going to exclude Occam’s single payer as being way too socialistic an enterprise for an American government, which is so incompetent it can design systems of management that land men on the moon and build and maintain an interstate highway system, fund and field one of the largest standing armed forces to ever grace the face of the Earth, and maintains and supports some of the largest industrial arms manufacturers in the world. Yeah, way too socialistic already for me too.

So public option means that the inept bureaucracy will have to compete with the finely honed, lean mean fighting machines of the private industry. That ain’t no whup, but it will interfere with the pharmaceutical companies free speech rights to peddle their drugs prescribe my medications on my television, so I can tell my doctor what I want too! I can see it crushing my dreams of dying of old age while making viagra induced, extended extenzed extention love now. One, just one, tale of American woe with health care reform.

Alas, A Post

There are so many things I could write about, why they would just “boggle” the “so called” “minds” of the purveyors boner enhancements and other good clean American fun stuff on television and radidio. I can empathize with the media elite to some extent, who while pretending to dislike bloggers who point out their wanks actually use it as leverage with their bosses when discussing their crappy ratings. Sort of like why I don’t go to quiencieras, they’re always speaking English at those things and so what’s the point of going to a quienciera if your not going to be allowed to not be able to conjugate verbs and be the center of everyone else’s conversation?

The toughest project is writing for the fourth time or so, about how you too may become a wealthy Texas rancher on the internet – with options. The things I did back then to talk to Liz Cheney in the forums. That was way before her father starting shooting wealthy Texas ranchers on the real things too, so maybe ol’ Dick was sending a subliminal message, like my old password for the WaPo’s forum, 5t1ll4s0n0f4b1tch.

That’s the nice thing about getting older, I can go outside and cogitate.

Therein Lies The Rub

To blog or not to blog, that is the question,
whether it is better to suffer not, to sling the arrows of our discontent,
or just do the you-tube thingy.

The Shaping of Things to Come

Part of the reason Congress seems so unresponsive to the public opinion of their respective constituencies is the bubble they wind up living in in DC. One wonders if the WaTi and WaPo will be getting the same treatment.

And that’s the way it is, July 18th, 2009. Good night.

Overlooked In The Health Care Debate

The public option is also a massive urban subsidy of the rural poor, which should have, could have, would have, brought tears of joy to rural conservatives taxpayers eyes, if they could only see the added benefit of lower local taxes as being a win win situation for themselves.

For some reason they cannot, and so they talk about socialism and other off the wall things instead of thinking things through like they used to do.

gg: Brian Beutler notes,

Jon Cohn over at The New Republic is reporting that, in early estimates, the Congressional Budget Office is finding that a robust public option, along the lines of the one recommended in the House health care bill, could save about $150 billion over 10 years–a notable chunk of the approximately $1 trillion Congress will need to finance an overhaul package.

And So It Goes

Mr. Conservative Republican himself,

Cheney Is Linked to Concealment of C.I.A. Project

The C.I.A. was said to have withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on orders from the former vice president.

Just on the face of it, a Vice-President, (now there’s a pun,) with zero Constitutional authority, telling a quasi Constitutional agency to not only violate the Constitution, but lie to the Congress about it, and

Members of Congress have differed on the significance of the program, whose details remained secret and which even some Democrats have said was properly classified. Most of those interviewed, however, have said that it was an important activity that should have been disclosed to the intelligence committees.

Should have, could have, would have.

Pesky Neighbors

Trial by jury, eh?

A woman has been remanded in custody accused of breaching an Asbo banning her from being noisy during sex. … Earlier this month she was given a four-year Asbo banning her from making excessive noise anywhere in England.

But she appeared in court on Monday, charged with three breaches of her Asbo in just 10 days.

That would explain previous neighbors heretofore inexplicable ear injuries.

Fee Fi Fo… Whoa- That’s A Lot Of Down Under

Rupert Murdoch’s News Group News­papers has paid out more than £1m to settle legal cases that threatened to reveal evidence of his journalists’ repeated involvement in the use of criminal methods to get stories.

Because knocking on front doors is so retro only David Brooks would do that, and only within a fortnight of reading Washington’s precepts of civility suitable for Renaissance festivals or when there is no one else to yell at bus drivers for you.

Nuke The Whales!

Oh. Wrong decade.

May be the wrong post too. This is the one where I explain how easy it would be to fall into the same old pattern of calling people names and and laughing at my own jokes, or playing with my You-Tube, (where I get to overdub other peoples work, (work I tell ya!, work!,)(Shazamm!, Andy!,) with strange overtones of current events mixed with old tunes,) or making insinuating remarks, etc.

There you have it.

It’s Everywhere!

The news! Earlier, like a minute or two ago, I posted this link in a post you can no longer read since I deleted it, proving weird things happen on the internet even when you are looking.
