You Can’t Heal – 7

Too many politicians remind me of dry alcoholics. They may want to change, and their poison of choice may have been removed, yet they still hold onto old ways. One new member of the House of Representatives filled out his communications staff and not his legislative. Helping Americans comes a distant second to building their own brand through exclusive interviews and speeches and being firm … Continue reading You Can’t Heal – 7

History’s telling me to not get excited about passage of the oil spill fine amendment…

A recent editorial in the New Orleans Times-Picayune celebrated House Passage of an amendment to the transportation bill which mandated 80% of Clean Water Act fines levied against British Petroleum for their catastraphuk be earmarked to the Gulf States who suffered the damages.

Senator John Cornyn, still an asshole…

Remember last June, when the Macondo Well was still spewing oil, and Tony Hayward appeared at the congressional hearing where Rep. Joe Barton, R-Tx apologized to Tony’s company for the actions of the Obama administrations, suggesting the creation of British Petroleum’s $20 billion dollar escrow fund came only after a White House “shakedown”?

Wall Street…

Yeah…why not? Those days of marching on capitols becoming so passe (in about a week or so), perhaps its time to take this straight to the robber barons themselves, for if the SEC and the politicians are so unwilling to do anything anymore, to smile and hire the investment banker CEO’s instead of put them in prison, all the while they express false empathy and … Continue reading Wall Street…

Dear Arnold Schwarzenegger and the California State Senate…A-A-Ahem…

Fuck you. Really…when all of you, both Democrat and Republican are finished congratulating yourselves on how you finally reached a budget “deal,” may each and every one of you then immediately lose every dollar you personally have and wind up on the streets with no contacts, no accounts and no visible means of support so that you will finally understand the damage that your politics … Continue reading Dear Arnold Schwarzenegger and the California State Senate…A-A-Ahem…

“Voters Can Make up Their Own Minds”- Bobby Jindal, and to Help, Watch the Dem’s New Video

Jindal refused to weigh in on David Vitter’s re-election campaign yesterday; when asked by a local reporter if he would endorse the incumbent Senator in his race over the Democratic challenger, Charlie Melancon, Jindal replied that “voters can make up their own minds.” For Jindal, assuming the governor is positioning himself for a run at the 2012 presidency, it was certainly the safe choice. In … Continue reading “Voters Can Make up Their Own Minds”- Bobby Jindal, and to Help, Watch the Dem’s New Video
