Big Fat Friday Free For All

Here we are again, folks--the day where we can let it all hang out.  What's bothering you?  Get it off your chests, folks!

I've taken Joe Biden's warnings this week to heart. Think I'll lock myself in the house this weekend lest I be raped out in town and have no policeman to call.

It was noted by a clever wag the other day that TARP was not corporate welfare because nine months later we didn't have to support a bunch of li'l baby banks. Also, the banks actually paid the government back.

But observing the tales of woe from the Wall Street Flea Baggers gave me an idea. Why not have Uncle Sam pay off the loans these kids have accumulated in the pursuit of some useless degrees? But that's it. No more government benefits for them forever. No AFDC, SNAP, Obamacare, Medicare, SSI, etc. You live and die entirely on you own, without the help of the gubmint.

To Sally's point: show me a case where a police officer has intervened in a rape or home invasion robbery in progress. That's not what cops do.

The bigger issue: the original stimulus was a big shell game - net road construction went down because states took the fed money for roads and moved more state money around to other things.

Propping up state governments and letting them avoid hard decisions is bad - saying that more rape and murder will result if we don't do it is worse.

This afternoon, I spotted a bumper sticker that read, "I refuse to believe that corporations are people until Texas executes one." Thoughts on this pithy statement of brilliance?

And yes, it was on a Prius, which also sported a "No W" decal.

PK--as we conservatives continue to display our sense of humor, even in the face of its being turned on simply can't read that bumper sticker without finding it funny.
