Abe Lincoln was an atheist and he was gay. But, let’s revise history and blame the Democrats.

Slowing from 80mph to 60 saves 10-20% in fuel. Of course, it then takes an extra 1-1/2 hrs to cross Kansas and who wants to spend any more time in Kansas than necessary? Let's get real. It's a question of priorities.

"... that means that the price increases are all the fault of speculators, right? ..." The price "increases" are a result of Ben Bernanke's printing presses running full time to recapitalize the banks, flooding the world with cheap dollars.

Pink slime is a beef substitute, not beef. It's filler. It's slaughter house floor sweepings, salvage, ground up and treated to where it's unrecognizable as much of anything. "Pink slime" was named by a USDA microbiologist (Gerald Zirnstein), hardly "some snob", in private emails that got loose into the world.

Our safety valve for another "Greece-like debacle" is the power of the printing press vs the power of the bankers to demand austerity to protect their loans. Both carry a price but one is a better value over the other in the long run. "... What is wrong with the Wal-Mart solution? I use the pharmacy their and it is the same medicine or are you just a bigot against Wal-Mart? ..." I don't go their, but I here you bruther. Your welcome. Our current debt problems can be laid squarely at the feet of the Bush Depression, high unfunded military spending going back to the Reagan years, the Bush tax cuts for his millionaire base and (unpunished) banker malfeasance. "Entitlements" was never the problem, only the convenient whipping boy. *** http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17620421 In the alleged suicide note, found by police and reported by Athens News, he said: "The government has annihilated all traces for my survival, which was based on a very dignified pension that I alone paid for 35 years with no help from the state." "And since my advanced age does not allow me a way of dynamically reacting... I see no other solution than this dignified end to my life, so I don't find myself fishing through garbage cans for my sustenance." *** Yes, these Murphy style letters always seem to come from JoCo and cities like Prairie Village or Leawood. "Let the others eat cake" doesn't keep them away from the walls forever.

The house always wins, the gamblers always lose. The absurdity is in believing gambling represents "a service" when it's a crime.

The real solution is to arm every nation and all people with nukular weapons. If we were all free to carry nukes in our pockets, no one would mess with anyone. Cut me off in traffic or cut in line at the movies? Expect to see yourself turned into glass when I pull my thermo-nuclear bomb. The world would be a much nicer place if we all had the power to destroy it. That's why they call it MAD.

It's almost a sure thing that those 130 rockets resulted in no Israeli deaths and likely few or no injuries. That's so much for the fair news reporting when it comes to pro-Israeli Paul. The Palestinians are the "gang that couldn't shoot straight". Their thousands of rocket "attacks" over the last decade have resulted in a handful of Israeli deaths (less than 30) while the retaliatory Israeli strikes have killed anywhere from 1000 Palestinians to something well north of that. It would be better if they all simply disarmed. Shut down the homemade Palestinian rocket factories and stop selling the Israelis arms. They could then throw rocks at each other when they got sore about something.

I know it's difficult to believe, but Goldman Sachs was in the middle of that Greek mess. GS has been "advising" the Greeks for at least the last ten years, maybe longer, and skimming a nice profit off the top for themselves all along no matter how poorly things turned out for the Greeks. The GS people are also thick through our government ... :) GS got busted the other day as investors in a porn/hooker website. They're a vampire squid.

Actually, the Greek's problems aren't that much different from ours. They spend too much on their military relative to their economy and the financial collapse of 2008 (thank you, Wall Street) shrunk tax revenues as tourism and shipping dried up. The difference is that Ben Bernanke has a printing press while the Greeks are stuck with the Euro and have to arrange private financing of their debt or go begging to the ECB (the Frogs and Krauts) for loans. The austerity measures coming along for Greece that drove the old fellow to kill himself on the steps of their parliament aren't designed to save Greece, they're designed to save the multi-national bankers.

Here's what kind of a country the Greeks have left ... *** http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/04/11017529-all-hope-annihilated-retiree-kills-himself-outside-greek-parliament A retired Greek pharmacist shot himself dead outside Greece's parliament Wednesday, saying he refused to scrounge for food in the garbage, touching a nerve among ordinary Greeks feeling the brunt of the country's economic crisis. *** But, at least the bankers are being saved. It's a question of priorities and when the price to pay for preserving the bankers' bonus money so they can keep up payments on the Benz is an old man going through dumpsters for dinner, the choice is obvious.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/29/individual-mandate-now-vi_n_517097.html Though Republican lawmakers now vilify the individual mandate for health insurance coverage as unconstitutional, the provision has long roots in conservative health care philosophy and has been supported by such GOP presidents as Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush. Republican administrations were among the first to embrace the concept of forcing individuals to buy coverage. Nixon -- hoping to stave off the single-payer ethos of many congressional Democrats -- explored the idea in the 1970s ... Less than two decades later, in what remains an unexplored chapter of health care history, a surprising supporter of the individual mandate was George H.W. Bush. *** Troubled conservatives, flip flopping all over.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/health-care-provision-at-center-of-supreme-court-debate-was-a-republican-idea/2012/03/25/gIQAoCHocS_story.html As the Supreme Court moves Tuesday to the heart of the challenge to President Obama’s signature health-care law, there is a curious twist: The case largely rests on the constitutionality of a provision that originated deep in Republican circles. The individual insurance mandate, which requires virtually all Americans to obtain health coverage or pay a fine, was the brainchild of conservative economists and embraced by some of the nation’s most prominent Republicans for nearly two decades. Yet today many of those champions — including presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — are among the mandate’s most vocal critics. *** The whole danged GOP is flip flopping all over the place.
