I know I said that my next post would be a How-to on surviving the upcoming meltdown, but I found this while browsing the news and had to put it in. I'm still researching the afore mentioned topic.
Here's an article I came across that I found immensely entertaining. The reason that I found it entertaining is the timing.RNC accuses Bush of going socialist... First, I'd like to say that I applaud their course of action, the timing makes it as useless as a hammer without a handle. President Bush only has 20 days left in office. Other than smacking his legacy around, this won't stop anything. On the other hand, it may put some starch into those Senate and House GOPers that feel that they need an excuse to stand up for core principles.
Personally, I haven't been happy with much of anything that Bush has done since his decision to enter into Iraq. As a Gulf War vet of the 90's, I was and am, pleased with his ousting of Sadam Hussein, not to mention the very late term abortion of his two demon possessed progeny. He's tried time and again to burden this country with socialist policies. Some of which, sad as it is to say, are contributing to the acceleration of the demise of this country's economy. First, there was Medicare part D (for those libs in California that can't read due to public education's use of Ebonics, that is the free prescription plan), then there comes the bailouts. If ever again I hear a candidate for elected office call himself a compassionate conservative, I will vote for the other guy, I don't care if it's Al Frankin.
So, what comes now? In 20 days, President Elect Obama will be sworn in as our next (shudder) Commander In Chief. I'm a big fan of irony, and I find it very ironic that the man who's about to become the highest law enforcement official in the country is a product of Chicago politics. I wonder what his first hundred days is going to be like? I can't see the Republicans pulling on him what the Dems did when Bush took office. If you remember, they fought tooth and nail to oppose nearly every member of his administration that he appointed. Would be nice if they did, though. It might slow down the hemorrhage that our country's coffers are experiencing. Maybe, what the RNC is doing will give the GOP leadership a little dose of leadership, and help put them on the straight and narrow.
Well, I've been trolling around for any little bit of good news and this is the best I can find. Well, that and the blogs and articles about Israel pounding the butt pudding out of Gaza. It's about time, and past time. And of course, our damnable CIC is playing the liberal again and telling them to back off. Wait, I agree. Israel should back off. Just as soon as those Syrian bastards are back in the desert with their flocks and no longer have the ability or inclination to fire rockets, strap on bombs, or otherwise do anything more aggressive than try to out-haggle the Israelis when selling goat meat.
