more of your money by giving another bailout to Government Motors:
The U.S. Treasury Department is in talks with GMAC Financial Services Inc about a possible third cash infusion to the company, an Obama administration official confirmed. The official declined to say how much additional money was under discussion for GMAC, which already has received $12.5 billion of taxpayer funds. The Wall Street Journal said the government may have to inject another $2.8 billion to $5.6 billion into the Detroit-based lender.
It seems that nutcase from Florida, Rep. Grayson(Evil Party Squirrel-FL) may be more than some fries short of his happy meal:
Kipling's statements were chronicled in an interview set to be released on November 5. Kipling stated that while Grayson touted that he was a respected economist he had actually failed an economics course in his sophomore year. In addition, some of Grayson's senior papers were accused of widespread plagiarism.
In addition, Kipling stated that Grayson's campaign had a glaring omission. During 1988, when Grayson had just turned thirty and while working for the Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson law firm, he spent four days in the Psychiatric Institute of Washington. What the cause of this stay was is yet unclear, although testimony from co-workers suggests that Grayson was extremely combative with fellow employees, including slapping a female intern in the face. Grayson was released after PIW doctors declared him "not to be a threat to the public."
Well. I guess compared to that calling a lobbyist a whore is a step up in behavior; at least he wasn't committing assault in the House.
Well, looks like Lieberman isn't going to stay on the reservation:
“I can’t see a way in which I could vote for cloture on any bill that contained a creation of a government-operated-run insurance company,” Lieberman added. “It’s just asking for trouble – in the end, the taxpayers are going to pay and probably all people will have health insurance are going to see their premiums go up because there’s going to be cost shifting as there has been for Medicare and Medicaid.”
Lieberman said he “very much” wants to vote for health care reform but that he’s worried about stifling “the economic recovery we’re in” or adding to the federal debt.
I do have to wonder whether it's actual concern with spending, or people back home telling him they'll throw his ass out if he votes for it; that 'wants to vote for reform' line bothers me.
These people were running a business helping immigrants; gee, isn't that nice?
Two U.S. residents, one an American citizen, one a Canadian citizen, educated and assimilated, and enjoying a nice enough living to be able to afford to fly to Denmark to kill a couple of guys over a cartoon. In the long run, Afghan cave-dwellers and Waziristani goatherds are less of a threat than fellows like Messrs Headley and Rana. The company name — "First World Immigration Services" — is a rather droll jest.
A study has discovered that most guys don't like women who look like they're starving to death; isn't that a damn surprise? What was the first clue, I wonder; maybe the guys saying the chick from the 'Pirates' movies needs to start eating, maybe?
Let's see, the social justice(i.e., "We'll take all your money and use it better because We're Progressive!") groups want to use the FCC to silence people who disagree with them. And the Obama buttmonkey in the FCC wants to help. Yeah, great regard they have for the 1st Amendment, huh?
La Raza president Janet Murguia called for TV networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off the airwaves and argued that hate speech should not be tolerated, “even if such censorship were a violation of First Amendment rights,” according to the NYTimes.
So a racist member of a real racist organization wants to trash the Constitution because it prevents them from silencing opponents... Yeah, real progressive of them, isn't it?
I've noticed that ammo supplies are getting better; not a whole lot, but definitely better.
Got something to read; this looks interesting...
