Thursday Morning Questions & Observations

In college, I  got four-point in nihilism. My mom was so proud.

You think Republicans and Democrats are pissed off about bailout bonus
babies: How about Commies?

I’m not too good in math, so help me with this. Okay, I got $8 million as a retention bonus from AIG and Congress is now
going to pass a law so the IRS can get 90% back and punish me.  You mean I
only get to keep $800,000? Boo hoo.

Fool: It’s the new four-letter word.

I’m not following this: Dubya’s Secretary of the Treasury demanded hundreds
of billions of $$, which he then gave to companies without asking on what,
how, or when they would spend it, and now the Republicans are pissed off at
the Democrats?

Did you read yesterday’s newspaper?
Oh wait, there aren’t any more newspapers.

Bin Laden is thought to be in Pakistan. Tell me again why we are sending more troops to

You heard it here first: Osama bin Laden and D.B. Cooper are sharing a cave.

Did I hear elected officials call for illegal vigilante actions against AIG
bonus babies, then excuse it as “just rhetoric?” Isn’t yelling “Fire” in a
crowded theater “just rhetoric?”

Has anyone noticed that in profile Sec Treasury Geithner looks a lot like
Bobby Kennedy? Or head-on, like a deer in the headlights? Every time I hear
him talk I wonder if English is his third or fourth language. Obviously “Finance” is his first language, but by all accounts he’s not fluent in that either.

Congressional hearings are the same as morality plays: Almost all make-believe, and without morale or morals.

How come there’s been no call for faith-based corporate bailouts?

What’s the exact amount of co-pay for health care for members of the US congress?

We support our troops. Tell me again: How?

How about we put all the AIG bonus babies into the Contender show, arm them
with rolls of nickels, and see who emerges as champion.

News this morning: The Federal Reserve is “dumping” another trillion into
the economy. What economy? Mars?

I can’t say I’ve ever experienced benefit from trickle-down economics, though I have frequently felt the government trickling down on me. Oh wait:  That’s just yellow rain.

Let me understand this: The nominal , self-appointed spokesperson for the Grand Old Party and
leftwing conservatives is a former Hillbilly heroin addict?

I was hunting birds  yesterday and accidentally shot a friend in the face.
When the cops came I told them to go away, we’d take care of things. I spent
the night in jail, trying to call Dick Cheney, but he refused to come to the phone.

‘Ave a noyce dye, mites.
