From the Mud Monster file:
Roland Burris (yup, that guy) “failed” to disclose a lot of stock options. He plans on amending his mandatory financial disclosure report to the Senate to reflect the fact he was caught. Again.
I believe that all people, regardless of race, are capable of being a moral as any others. Therefore, they are all held to the same moral standard.
Therefore, it is not racism for me to state that Senator Burris is an immoral, lying, cheating, conniving, duplicitous, ne’er-do-well who I wouldn’t trust with my money or my country.
In the Blood-Chilling and the We Told You categories:
Obama says stopping pointless procedures for terminally ill people can help cut costs.
Who decides what’s pointless?
It isn’t cold-hearted Republicans trying to take kill Grandma. It’s the Liberal Ideology and it’s domestic partners, Euthanasia. Their love child, President Obama is their Messiah.
In the It’s None Of Their Business category:
“Consumer protection” groups are encouraging new government bureaucracies to oversee hidden costs and predatory behavior on the part of evil corporations trying to stiff us for out money. The Democrats love it, of course. The Republicans don’t, of course.
The Reuters headline has more truth that it probably realizes itself:
Concise yet cogent argument to the plain fact that we are responsible for ourselves.
The real question shouldn’t be if the government is going to look out for us in this way, too. It should be, why aren’t you using the tools available to you, the glut of information waiting to be perused, to make yourself as knowledgeable as you need to be regarding your own financial situation?
Forget the government, I’ve got the Internet!
From the Why Can’t We Get This Right file:
Hugh Hewitt posts a letter from an anonymous ad exec regarding the dearth of creativity emanating from the conservative movement.
I agree whole-heartedly with the ad exec.
While I love the witty yet pithy videos on PJTV (yes, watch that video, it’s great), I’ll admit most people I’d like to convince of their accuracy of the philosophy they espouse would be bored by them.
Maybe I should take up video editing? I’d have to revise my vocabulary. A lot.
And finally, from the Here It Goes Again and Will We Ever Learn and It’s Obvious They Just Want The Money files:
Fannie and Freddie (remember them?) are being “encouraged” to offer mortgages to high-risk and low-income borrowers again.
Good night, and keep laughing.
