The Wit and Wisdom of Ann Coulter

"Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency [NSA] spying on "Americans." I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo."

Why the Union Strikers in NYC Need to Get a Grip

A friend from NYC called me last night-- that is, a pro union, liberal left-wing friend-- who said the metro strikers already get to retire at age 55 with a pension that amounts to 100 percent of their pre-retirement salaries.
They are striking because, among other reasons, they want the retirement age to be lowered to age 50, with the same 100 percent pension benefits. Please.
If they got back to work, someone could throw Ann Coulter onto a hot subway track just in time for Christmas.

Not a Bad Sampling...

An MSNBC poll with more than 85,000 responses so far says that 86 percent of those polled believe that Bush's actions justify impeachment.

What I heard was that the new hires will have to retire at 65(which is normal btw) but also contribute to their retirement fund from age 55 to 65. current employees can retire at 55 and do NOT contribute to their retirement fund.Big biz has been pulling this new hire crap for the last few years as witnessed by the grocery workers strike here in Cali last year..they cant screw the current employees so they are going after all new ones hired under the new contract.

Dont ya just love polls?

Hey! You CANNOT impeach The Chimp!

It will be FAR more entertaining to watch him become totally ineffective (which is happening even as we speak) and then be abused and mocked for the next 3 years!

And that's my run-on sentence political comment for the day.

MERRY FUCKING XMAS/HOLIDAYS/WHATEVER TO EVERYONE! (in other words - I don't care what's PC, I just want to send best wishes to all!)

JB, we have watched him being totally ineffective for five years.
Enough of that.
Someone get the hook.

Impeach has such a nice ring to it.

"Removed from office in disgrace" also has a sweet sound.
Say it loud and there's music playing, say it soft and it's almost like praying--

I heard on NPR that the big issue was younger workers having to pay THREE TIMES the amount of older workers into the pension fund. The strike, though short, got that off the table.
