How About a Change of Pace?

I've probably run this before, but I can't help myself. This is awfully funny.

In Inmates Are About to Take Charge

Over the past decade, a lot of unscrupulous people in the financial world took more and more chances -- and riskier and riskier chances -- with depositors’ money. That led us into a near melt-down of the entire economy. And while they were doing that, the people at the top of the pile added multi-million dollar bonuses to their multi-million dollar salaries.

We can and should condemn them. But the harsh reality is that people running businesses in this country will push the envelope as far as they can in the name of profit … for themselves and, if it’s a public company, for their stockholders. That’s just the way it is. It’s our system.

And if they discover they can get away with six inches, they’ll see if they can stretch it to a foot. If they get away with a foot, they’ll keep it up … until someone in authority makes them stop. That, too, is our system. Or at least it has been.

Now we have Ron Paul about to take over an important House committee that has jurisdiction over the Federal Reserve. And he says we don’t need to regulate the banks.

Ron Paul is a libertarian ideologue and an arrogant fool.

The people who believe him are just fools.

Sarah ... Please! ... for God's sake! ...GO AWAY!

In an interview on CBN, Sarah Palin rattled off on a variety of topics including the civil unrest in Egypt. If you can bear it, read through this verbatim transcript of her remarks.

And nobody yet has explained to the American public what they know, and surely they know more than the rest of us know, who it is who will be taking the place of Mubarak. I'm not real enthused about what it is that is being done on a national level from D.C. in regards to understanding all the situation there in Egypt, and in these areas that are so volatile right now, because obviously it's not just Egypt, but the other countries, too, where we are seeing uprisings. We know that now more than ever, we need strength and sound mind there in the White House. We need to know what it is that America stands for, so we know who it is that America will stand with. And we do not have all that information yet.

This is gibberish. This is moronic. This is coming from the mouth of a willfully ignorant woman who apparently believes she could actually be president.
She is delusional ... and so is anyone who doesn't regard her as a sad joke.

This Should Never Happen in the United States!

These Boy Scouts are having a bake sale to raise money to help one of their troop ... a 15-year-old kid who has cancer.

Every one of those miserable, selfish, Republican ideologues who voted to repeal the health care reform law should be forced to look this kid in the eye and explain their reasons. Whatever they are, it won't be good enough.

Fox News Disagraces Itself -- AGAIN!

Fox News does not know where Egypt is located.

Fox News has mistakenly placed Egypt where Iraq should be, so we can probably assume that Fox is uncertain as to the location of the country where more than 4,000 American service personnel have died.

Fox News is a joke and a disgrace. Somewhere, Ed Murrow and Walter Cronkite are weeping.
