Beaver Day and I missed it

Hey Graves how about a beaver talk at the library?

Okay okay I know in all silliness that started some time ago when a certain Pygalgia posted booby photos to increase web traffic to his site so I thought I'd give it a try and now it's become a tradition.

As I said in my last post keep your eyes peeled for when a major story or event makes headlines for three straight days in a row somebody will take the opportunity to slide one over on us. Seems the republicons are dropping their Medicare overhall plan. What's the matter, nobody fall for your discount coupon plan for health care? Don't you know that only works at the grocery store. Sure wish they had a coupon for tomatoes.

Oil prices are falling but do you think they'll come down at pump anytime soon? They've hit $4 a gallon here. God help you if you live in LA or Frisco. I could only imagine. And the Rons as in Mo on capitol hill are up for the "drill baby drill" chorus. Only problem is any oil drilled here is sold on the open market to the highest bidder. We'll see nary a drop for our internal combustion rigs. And like I stated from a previous post "what goes up must come down". Gee ya think gold just might be next? So where's the next bubble going to happen? They've raped just about everything we have. Home equity...gone. Retirement...wiped out. Jobs...went overseas. Just what is left to pillage? If the host looses too much blood it dies and the parasite with it.

Bank fails later.
Update: Only one bank fail this week in FL.

Are you mad? I'm not the library can handle being even more sexy than it already is.

So what am I supposed to do with these coupons? 1/100th of a cent face value, dammit.

$4.19 around here. Hell, keep going up, nothing like quitting stuff cold turkey. Of course, the shakes in this case will be munition aftershocks.

$4.159 here. oy

$4.05 a gallon here.

Sweet system, if you're in it. Buy oil company stocks I guess, although I don't know how well the shareholders do.

I seem to have a knack for irritating the beavers. :-)

They say it may go down 38 cents at the pump this summer but we'll believe it when we see it.

Those asshole Republicans are now saying we are on the same page with Medicare and Medicaid because they want to kill thee issue for Dems, Wait until after the election if they gain the power to screw with it.

What's left to pillage? Are you kidding? There's ANWR, Medicare, Social Security, public schools — you name it. They're not half through with the Gulf of Mexico.

They won't be content until half the nation's groundwater is ruined due to fracking, roadless natural forest preserves are being sold off to developers and gas rigs dot the regions formerly known as permafrost like McMansions popping up in Atlanta suburbs.

"If the host looses too much blood it dies and the parasite with it."

Unfortunately the corporate parasites are probably shrewd enough to jump to another host just moments before this one dies.

Did the beaver take command of this blog? Fucking terrorist.

On the news tonight, they said gas prices were high because of flooding in the Mississippi. Since when did we start drilling in the Mississippi?

Good thing you didn't move to Canada. Our new government is hell-bent to Americanize the country. With 40% of the popular vote. Europe is looking better all the time.
