What They Do

Darryl at Grumpy Old Man summons up some righteously rude indignatiion about the seven million Americans who have gone hungry since our godly president mirculously ascended to himself to tax cutting heaven.

Now would someone out there in the asshat brigade that supports that prick in the White House please explain to me how the mightiest, richest, most powerful fucking Nation in the whole fucking wide world can have 38.2 million hungry people? And while your at it, you lot of foul Cunts, you might try and explain to me also how it is that we now have 7 million MORE starving people since that lying prick you lot look up to as God reincarnated stole the office of president. And you might just as well try to explain just how fucking important it is to continually cut taxes so this lard faced son-of-a-bitch who is making it even easier to totally eliminate the poor through hunger and simple freezing to death can get even richer.

Tax Cutting Heaven is a drug to these people; five cuts in five years. As with any other addictive drug user, you can be sure they are already scheming ways to get another fix.

Bob Geiger posts about U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg's ammendment to change the name to the “Moral Disaster of Monumental Proportion Reconciliation Act” which is how the National Council Of Churches described it pointing out that it is “contrary to all the fundamental Christian values” right before he went on to disect a few of the many bills that Democrats wanted to enter.

  • The Bankruptcy Bill
  • Minimum Wage
  • National Security
  • Veterans and First Responders

This is a fine time to revisit my friend Riggsveda's run down of rejected ammendments to the Firebombing and Loansharking Protection and Advocacy Act of 2005

  • S.AMDT 16 to protect servicemembers and vets---NO 58-38
  • S.AMDT 17 to protect the elderly---NO 59-40
  • S.AMDT 28 to protect people whose own medical problems caused their debt---NO 58-39
  • S.AMDT 29 to protect homeowners with medical debt---NO 58-39
  • S.ADMT 31 to limit the amount of interest charged to 30%---NO 74-24 (they really hated that)
  • S.AMDT 32 to protect people whose debt is incurred from being caregivers to ill/disabled family members---NO 60-37
  • S.AMDT 37 to protect people whose debt was incurred through identity theft---NO 61-37
  • S.ADMT 38 to protect people from predatory lending practices---NO 58-40
  • S.ADMT 49 to protect employees & retirees from corporate practices that rob them of their earnings/retirement savings when the business files for bankruptcy---(Say it with me now:)NO 54-40
Then there is the incomplete but expensive so called Avian Flu Plan that the States may not be able to pay for although experts and amatuers alike expressed doubts that a thousand Camels would be able to drag Mr Bush through the the eye of a needle.
