Another few weeks in the books as we all slowly pace our way to the inevitable.
President Reagan...I'm mean - OBAMA! Getting him confused since they seem so similar is now going to join in with the failed Bush policies of tossing money at a problem. Hey, Bush stimulus didn't work so I'll toss in my own of 350Bil in tax breaks for the downtrodden which is just about everyone. But as long as the moonbats don’t like it that gives me hope that I may have called this one wrong. Of course a handout to the states is possible along with infrastructure and assorted other goodies designed to raise the total package to over a trillion bucks. First it would create 2.2 million jobs and then 2.5 million and now 3.5 million. Ah…nothing like the glories of political orthodoxy to inflate projections. With 50 trillion in bad paper still hanging around this will be a miracle if it has a positive impact. I’ve been a pessimist on the whole financial mess and will continue to do so since the government does not create wealth but consumes it. If you are over 50 in will not impact you but your kids will be paying this government VISA bill for generations.
Madoff. I am amazed at a legal system that allows this character to be under house arrest especially when you look at the house. Scott Burns, a financial columnist, had the best suggestion and that is to get real medieval on him. Let him loose. No jail time. No one can speak to him or feed him and are allowed to kill him on sight. Madoff has ruined thousands of lives and virtually destroyed selected charities but just goes around with this smirk on his face. Some yo yo holds up a 7/11 for $50 worth of Twinkies and ends up in a cell for five years married to some guy named Bubba.
Fat assed kids made the news. Here in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts the moonbats are now attempting to control the dietary process so that our kids do not end up like lard bottoms. Now my good buddy BB is a moonbat and I say start with the adults and start right with BB. I mean watching the big fella on a bike makes me weep for that poor machine. A marvel of engineering in that that bike has not totally collapsed. They should have let Schwin build the Big Dig. As those of you who know me realize I’m in semi perfect shape and that stomach of mine is just muscle at rest so being a body beautiful I can toss the verbal darts his way. Now as for the kids I can see Little Debbie snacks being sold by sugar dealers. Will they allow a convenience store with 500 yards of a school? Special dogs trained to sniff out tootsie rolls as a sweep takes place and a school lock down? I can see a parent at a discipline hearing: “Thank Gawd it’s only weed as I thought Muffy was caught with a soda.”
Well I do hope my good friend Rigger has been paying attention to the playoffs since I have called every game right on target especially the Cards. And the Sox seem to be a baseball version of a M.A.S.H. Unit with recent signings of Baldelli, Smoltz, Penny and Saito. Give me your tired, your not so poor and your broken down.
The Tribe is in the news and that has been posted her of late. Then, again, the Tribe is always in the news. The Tribe reminds me of that Star Trek episode where a planet is run by mobs thanks to contamination by a previous exploration party. The Raven is singing or in this case - cawing - since, I believe, Ravens do not sing. Some have hinted at the possibility of this going deeper and have tossed names or innuendo out there. All I remember is what I posted when the deal first went thorough and that is what is not on the table worries me it’s what under the table that does. Hopefully, the tentacles of corruption will not spread any further than where it is right now.
So, post away. Add to this mess or be critical or positive or anything else. This board is yours.
