A very exciting week as Hal managed to get into a skirmish or two...or three with a few others. I hope Hal continues to post on politics but I know he will on other matters. Hal. My two political favorites are HST and Winston Churchill and we all know what HST said about kitchens. Consider this site a kitchen as it appears all of the posters are to the right of your views. Me? I'm all over the political map but have a strong distaste for any orthodoxy from the right or left. So a view of CHB is guaranteed to get those hackles up. So, Hal, loosen up your keyboard and try to gather in some recruits for Moonbat Nation. I will sit back and enjoy while taking cheap shots at all. Just keep it within bounds, folks, or else. Hal has managed to maintain his composure and so have the others.
The economy continues to fail...and fail and the proposal from the Obama camp is an infusion of public works dollars. Can't hurt but IMO seems more of a union payoff than anything else. Trickle down economics in action. Worked more for Ike in the 50s than FDR in the 30s but go for it. Obama was also in agreement on the bailout so that is an issue he can't run and hide from as Nancy Pelosi attempted to do on a news show this morning. Looks like excessive Botox treatments do kill the brain cells specific to memory. For Obama even failure will be a success based on what has happened the last few years of Bush and counting the days. Bush can try and go one on one with Warren G, Harding for worse Prez in the last 100 or so years. Even the apparent victory in Iraq is quite hallow when no one is working. Hopefully, Obama will rethink his Afghan policy. Think Russia on that one.
In Massachusetts we have managed to accomplish zero population growth a task that has been accomplished by the fact that those who can escape do so. Governor Patrick has shown that his administration is classic do nothing and in reality the Legislature has called the shots. The good thing for Deval is a good portion of those Legislators will not be a problem unless they can cast their votes from Cedar Junction. Ah...the bliss of one party rule.
Locally it has been over a week since the latest foot-in-mouth pronouncements from a CFO aligned blogger so keep trolling, as I do, their site's for the latest faux pas. A sure bet if history holds any sway.
