Where the hell was I
After a solid day with a headache (the system sometimes gets out of wack and no I don't drink) I mistakenly turn on the Sunday talk shows to be inundated with republican talking heads from the past. Just what rock they crawled out from under is anyone's guess. Nothing like getting a sour stomach from listening to these guys. It's like the grade school kids who had nothing to do with a victory trying to take all the credit. Sorry guys Bush was a 100% failure in everything he did.
In other news it seems Michigan is pulling a Wisconsin with the beginnings of a recall effort of 9 rethuglicon state house members as well as their governor. In Michigan's' case it's a matter of the governor signing a bill that effectively overturns the will of the people. The bill makes for taking over a city or town perfectly legal and putting it into the hands of an appointed person. That person would then have the right to nullify contracts and gain hold of what's left of the city coffers. Nothing like modern day fascism eh?
Michigan Gov your next Oh and don't eat the teriyaki jerky either.
Hat tip to the We Party for this one.
Hard to say exactly how well the economy is going at present. Just four years ago it would take me better than an hour to get to work and it didn't matter what shift I was working. After an extended absence (Again that's thanks to Bush and the Wall Street boys) it's taking about 1/2 an hour sometimes a little more. For a week or so a little more and now traffic has become lighter. I don't know if that is the result of higher gas prices or not. In their infinite wisdom our public transportation here has cut service and raised prices. Need to take a bus to see grandma at the home on Sunday? Forget it if you live here. No bus for you.
