Update #3: Cruel Wife turns 40!  Might have been last week, but she sure the hell is 40 today.  The plan is to go get Moroccan sea bass, lamb & couscous, and perhaps a lobster bisque.

Ooops.  Wrong picture.  Happy Birthday CW!!!   Smeep.

Update 1: Paying Gitmo Detainees to Live on US Soil.

All this talk of shipping them off to other countries is just terrible.
hey deserve to be here, they’ve paid their dues.

Announce three days ahead of time that a train will pull through a certain area of the desert (away from any solar power farm), at GPS coordinates XXX-XXX-XXX and make one stop, letting off 240 free men.

People who would like to wish them well in their new life in the US may show up promptly at 12pm to greet them.

This better sting like hell.

Could someone tell me what the f*ck it is with this guy?  We gotta help the economy we gotta help the ec0nomy we gotta help the economy… and then he turns right around and shoots it in the ass with a huge silver bullet treated with cyanide.

Why not raise taxes and spending, too, while we’re at it?  Ooops.

So finally Congress stops worrying about AIG, the economy, tax simplification, the budget, and all that silly-assed stuff and gets right to work on how college football rankings are chosen.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Everyone from President Barack Obama on down to fans has criticized how college football determines its top team. Now senators are getting off the sidelines to examine antitrust issues involving the Bowl Champion Series.The current system “leaves nearly half of all the teams in college football at a competitive disadvantage when it comes to qualifying for the millions of dollars paid out every year,” the Senate Judiciary’s subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights said in a statement Wednesday announcing the hearings.

Yep.  Gettin’ closer to the time to drain the swamp.  Yessirrrrreeeee.

Damn.  They decided to return to worry about things that they ought not worry about

The House Financial Services Committee on Thursday adopted a milder alternative to a bill passed last week that would have taxed away 90 percent of employee bonuses from companies getting federal bailout money. The new legislation would let bailed-out companies pay bonuses as long as the government determines the compensation is not “unreasonable or excessive.”

Soooo, if a particular minor player in congress later decides (while they are PMS’ey or have “little man’s syndrome”) that they want to get pissy about a particular company, they can decide that some compensation is in this case unreasonable or excessive.

In this imperfect universe I am unable to stop thinking about AIG.  Congress and their punitive taxation.  And how many people have no idea what constitutional intents really were.  The lynch mob to take out AIG (including congress) ought to read this:

“The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy.”

Benjamin Franklin, Emblematical Representations, circa 1774
