Oh, God! It's Fry Day!
Mr. Right is running a good parody on global warming this week. Here is a taste for you.
"Clearly, the greedy and over-industrialized north is stealing sunlight from those of us in the less-fortunate, underdeveloped south," reported one Brazilian television network. "In the process, they have doomed us all!"Also the doomocrats have passed another toothless watered down bill to reduce student loan interest, by a small margin, on new loans only, starting sometime in the not too distant future I think.
"Unless something is done immediately, we will all be dead within, at most, a few years,"
Wow! Now that sure is a lot better than giving a tax credit for all student loan interest paid, like the Republicans did. Funny how the Republicans were able to help students without driving banks out of the business of making the loans. But hey at least they tried, right?
For more on the Democrats new plans see Strata-sphere. Larwyn kept recommending this blog to me so I've been reading it a bit and she's right, it's good.
EIGHTH, we will submit and pass legislation that will mandate any questioning by US agents of Al Qaeda members to (a) be done in the presence of an ACLU lawyer, (b) never last more than 30 minutes, (c) be done indoors, in climate controlled conditions, (d) include an offering of proper food and beverage and (e) require every question to use the word ‘please’Say, have you noticed that all their bills seem to reduce a tax credit or increase a payroll tax?
They will also try stop the evil hellibacon from getting help on expensive deep water oil exploration. How this is going to help reduce the dependance on foriegn oil, I dunno. They also don't want any new clean(er) coal plants either. They like the old dirty ones so they can point fingers.
They say are going to put that dirty oil money in a trust fund. I suppose that the increased payroll taxes will also go into that trust fund to give them something to rob for their other programs. Or else they'll say say they've slashed the deficit, forgetting all about their criticism of including these trust funds when figuring the deficit.
I got to hand it to them they sure are slick. All these new do nothing bills, do nothing war plan. All in 100 hours! Which is about ten times longer than they spent actually thinking about what to do.
