Tax Dollars Oh My

Classical Values: Subsidies for the gangs on one hand. More police to fight them on the other.

It's an interesting article.

I like this guy. Watch his video on Obama's decline of public finance:

Obama & Hillary

I'll be posting with my standard regularity soon, I promise. I've been really busy. Anyway, just a few weeks after Hillary suspends her campaign, she's hitting the road with Obama. Is that maybe just a little transparent?

A Meaningless Endorsement

Al Gore emailed his endorsement to Obama's email list, naturally. He said:

Over the next four years, we are going to face many difficult challenges -- including bringing our troops home from Iraq, fixing our economy, and solving the climate crisis. Barack Obama is clearly the candidate best able to solve these problems and bring change to America.

Why does his endorsement hold any merit after the only other potential candidate he would endorse already dropped out? It's not like he would endorse McCain and commit political suicide. McCain isn't green. He's closer to blue than green. He's purplish. A deep, reddish purple, but purple nonetheless.

Ooof, That's Gotta Hurt

Tucker Bounds: "Barack Obama requires more preconditions to meet with voters and John McCain than he does Mahmoud Ahmadinejad."

It's funny because it's true. Like actually true.

If Only We Held Off

Here is a copy of Obama's Birth Certificate:

Had we only held off on admitting Hawaii for two years...

VP Vetters and Big Companies

John McCain's VP vetters, according to the Washington Post, associate with big corporations. (this just in: the nominee for PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES is powerful.) What's wrong with associating with big companies? John Hinderaker asks:
The idea that there is something wrong with associations with companies like UBS, Exxon Mobil and Hewlitt Packard is absurd. If any connection with a top law firm or a large corporation is somehow taken as a black mark, pretty soon those who advise our Presidential candidates, or serve in their administrations, will be as inexperienced as, say, Barack Obama himself. That would be a sad outcome.


Daily News: The streets in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - all 400 blocks of them - were filled with floodwaters and other strange sights: floating Dumpsters and utility poles and sandbags piled in vain.

Completely non-political, but read this quote by John Mayer:
“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, "hey girl, magenta!" and she's like, "oh, you mean purple!" and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, "no - I want magenta!"”

True. I hope I'm at least a 32 pack. Do they make 32 packs? I don't know. I'll look it up.

UPDATE: According to wikipedia, they land every multiple of eight up to 120, with a few exceptions. So there is a 32, but now I'm wishing I aimed higher to begin with. Maybe I'm a 48? Not sure.

Told Ya I'd Be Back

You didn't believe me, did you? Time to find out who the loyal readers are...

To the news...

Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr revealed Friday that he plans to create a powerful new fighting force to battle what he calls "the occupiers" in Iraq.

That's dandy, but I'm curious to see where he finds his soldiers.

Puerto Rico Goes to Clinton

Fox: Hillary Clinton’s convincing win in Puerto Rico’s Democratic presidential primary on Sunday is adding fuel to her claims that the popular vote total should give superdelegates the guidance they need to select her as the nominee.
