Quote for the day...

I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.

Throw the crook in jail...

FBI: Blago wanted payoff to give Obama adviser Senate seat - Jonathan Martin and Carrie Budoff Brown - Politico.com
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was captured on tape saying that unless he received “something real good” for the appointment of a top adviser to Barack Obama to fill the president-elect’s Senate seat he would appoint himself, according to the criminal complaint.
Surprise surprise -- another "public servant" using the leverage of his office for his own gain...

Throw him in jail and toss away the key...

Here we go...

Jobless Rate Soars to 6.7% in November - NYTimes.com
With the economy deteriorating rapidly, the nation’s employers shed 533,000 jobs in November, the 11th consecutive monthly decline, the government reported Friday morning, and the unemployment rate rose to 6.7 percent.
This is what happens when you put people that don't believe in governing in charge of government...

The act of governing is important -- yet roughly half the population still believes someone like Sara Palin is capable of it...

Anyone with half-a-brain could and should have seen this disaster coming: we don't actually produce much in this country -- and most of the "growth" we've experienced during the last 8 years was directly traceable to bankers swapping paper on wall street and private citizens using their home equity as a piggy bank... In other words, economic growth over the last 8 years has been a complete sham. Its truly been a Ponzi scheme economy and if you need more proof just stand by as all that phony money that's kept employers believing they were doing 'ok' continues to evaporate.

The only good that can come of this mess is the chance at educating the public... but I doubt it... I already hear how the current crisis is the dems in congress' fault.
