History 101

I have been outed as a geek of history by Bubblewench. Actually, I outed myself a few days ago but she beat me to it, I just didn't know she had. The subject: Cuba, land of rum and good cigars. I'm told they even had some great golf courses at one time.


One supreme commander (forgive me, I just watched V - the miniseries) for 50 years is amazing in this day and age and the fact that this country could do nothing to change that fact has to be a significant portion of the story in years to come, especially after the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba's major benefactor.


The leaders of our country have given lip service to the Cubans that would like to see the end of the Castro regime, just to placate them and to woo their support in every major election since the fall of Batista. Only one President attempted to do anything at all and his effort was just a walk down a primrose path to failure that was initially laid out by Eisenhower. Every administration since then has contributed to a failed policy of isolation, even though they were still able to bring in some of those fine cigars.

Now the question is, with Fidel stepping down will anything change? Will Raul make an overture toward the U.S. after the upcoming election (it sure as hell won't happen during the reign of GWB)? Will he take the country in a democratic direction? Will our new President take the first step and say to hell with the silliness of past policy just because of a few Cuban crybabies in Florida that seem to have had past Presidents by the balls and squeezed whenever anyone brought up the possibility of normalized relations (did I mention they make great cigars?).


Time will tell but I don't think that we can depend on Raul to take the offensive. If we are to normalize relations, it will have to start with us.


Having said all of that, I must admit I have not given much thought to the Cuban situation in quite some time and my interest in history tended to lean more towards 3 periods, colonial America, the movement west and the post civil war period.

Disclaimer: Even though I have referred to cigars numerous times in this post, it has been nearly a year now since I last had any taste of tobacco.

Thursday's Thoughts

Ring of Fire

Do all trends start in California? Apparently not and you may not like this one if it catches fire (that's a pun kiddies). If you live in Bellevue, a small suburb of Omaha, Nebraska you may soon have to pay (in more ways than one) if there is a fire in your place of residence.

Will you be ready for al-a-carte fire service? According to the Bellevue City Council, the minimum cost for a small kitchen fire would be around $2,500.00. A larger fire (like your whole house) would be charged according to the number of units responding.

Will there be any cheating here, like the homeowner with his home fully engulfed calling to report a kitchen fire? Or would the city send everything it had just to pad the bill when there was a call about a trash fire? The city believes that insurance will cover any costs but declines to comment on what that may mean to insurance rates.

Get ready folks, this could get ugly and oh, by the way, what on earth are cities doing with our tax dollars?

What if they had an election an nobody came?

Well, this was almost the case in Council Bluffs, Ia. On Tuesday, February 26th, there was a special election and 952 voters decided that every homeowner in the city will continue to pay a levy for the next ten years to support school building and grounds maintenance. 952 voters. That equates to 2.9% of the 35,339 registered voters. Quite a turnout wouldn't you say.

Since it cost about $15,000 to hold the election it equates to about $15.75 per vote (or at the current cost of gasoline, about 5 gallons worth). You would think that a few more people might be able to get to the polling place and still use much less than 5 gallons of gas. Hell, in this town, many of them could have walked, especially since it was a rather pleasant day on Tuesday.

Diebold Accidentally Leaks Results Of 2008 Election Early

Well, it seems that the race for President of the United States has come to a close. According to one news source, one of the nations manufacturers of electronic voting machines has accidentally released the elections results 8 months in advance of the election.

A Diebold spokesmen is asking that all registered voters go to the polls, even though we now know who the next president will be. When questioned about the possibility of a change in the machines decision, he ruled that out but did not discount the possibility of an assassination.

News You Need to Know

AP News
German Police Dogs to Wear Shoes










Police dogs in the western city of Duesseldorf will no longer get their feet dirty when on patrol — the entire dog unit will soon be equipped with blue plastic fiber shoes, a police spokesman said Monday.

"All 20 of our police dogs — German and Belgian shepherds — are currently being trained to walk in these shoes," Andre Hartwich said. "I'm not sure they like it, but they'll have to get used to it."

The unusual footwear is not a fashion statement, Hartwich said, but rather a necessity due to the high rate of paw injuries on duty. Especially in the city's historical old town — famous for both its pubs and drunken revelers — the dogs often step into broken beer bottles.

"Even the street-cleaning doesn't manage to remove all the glass pieces from between the streets' cobble stones," Hartwich said, adding that the dogs frequently get injured by little pieces sticking deep in their paws.

The dogs will start wearing the shoes this spring but only during operations that demand special foot protection. The shoes comes in sizes small, medium and large and were ordered in blue to match the officers uniforms, Hartwich said.

"Now we just have to teach the dogs how to tie their shoes," he joked

Today in Congress: February 25, 2008, our elected officials at work:

THE SENATE

Meets at 3 p.m. and immediately proceeds to the reading of President George Washington's farewell address. (Gee and I missed it!).

Following the reading, the Senate will resume consideration of S.1200, the “Indian Health Care Improvement Act Amendments of 2007.” (Under old business).

THE HOUSE

Meets at 4 p.m. to consider H.Res.978, expressing support for the designation of the week of March 3-7, 2008, as “School Social Work Week”; H.Res.930, supporting the goals and ideals of “Career and Technical Education Month”; H.Res.961, commending the Alaska Army National Guard for its service to the State of Alaska and the citizens of the United States; H.Res.944, honoring the service and accomplishments of Lieutenant General Russel L. Honore, United States Army, for his 37 years of service on behalf of the United States (this is the guy that led task force Katrina - he did a fine job there????); and legislation to provide for the continued minting and issuance of certain $1 coins in 2008.

Important work on our behalf :(

Pimping for DaddyK

We are definitely family. CK has tagged me and the subject matter slides right into a post I was going to do on a book I just finished.

We must all be psychic, why just the other day, NK and I were watching the beginning of a commercial about arthritis; on the screen was what appeared to be a can of Campbell's soup and the announcer said, can you pull on this? Immediately NK and I put our index fingers out and said simultaneously "can you pull on this"?

Guess I got off track there.

Anyway I am supposed to talk about a book. Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people & post a comment on your taggers blog so they can go see.

1. Well, the book I just finished just happened to be sitting on the table beside me when I discovered that I had been tagged. The name: No Excuses by Robert Shrum. He is now best known for his "curse" on any Presidential candidate that employs him as a consultant to their campaign.

If you want a bit on insider campaign information on how to loose an election, read this book (I think HRC has secretly employed him).


2. Surprise, surprise; when I opened the book to page 123 I found that I had bookmarked that page for future discussion (one thing most of you probably do not know about me is that I was a history major in college and I became very anal about how I go about reading a book. I have been known to make margin notes and frequently bookmark passages for future reference).

In this case, the reference happens to be very timely. Senator Ted Kennedy is talking about universal health care. Leading up to the 5th sentence on page 123, Senator Kennedy says:

"I say again as I have before, if health insurance is good enough for the President, the Vice President and the Congress of the United States, then it is good enough for you and every family in America".

The statement was made just prior to the election in 1980. So, here we are, 28 years later and we have not moved 1 inch toward providing everyone with health care that is equivalent to the type of care received by those serving us. How about that!

So, the 5th sentence on page 123 is:

"Kennedy shifted tone again as he talked personally about the campaign and signaled to a convention that now didn't want him to finish that he was about to:

In closing, let me say a few words to all those that I have met and to all those who have supported me, at this Convention and across the country."

4. The next 3 sentences:

"There were hard hours on our journey, and often we sailed against the wind. But always we kept our rudder true. There were so many of you who stayed the course and shared our hope."

End of 5th through 8th sentences on page 123.

While I was somewhat bored at times and Mr. Shrum did not provide a flow that would be recommended for a novice writer, this book is worth the effort if you are interested in how a campaign takes shape.

One thing I wonder though is exactly how much do Senators pay for their health care?

5. I tag thee: Julie, DW, Jo, Squidgesmum, Mr. Fabulous

So, If you have a book close by, tell us all what it is and what on earth might be on page 123.

Sprinting to get Nexteled, Part 1

I just love change (this may force me to reconsider any change in Washington), especially when the change is made in the guise of improved customer service.

Here's the story: Last night I decided to download a new ring tone for my phone; Time Has Come Today by the Chambers Brothers. Great song and I even had a person to assign it to.

So, I log into my Sprint account and the fun begins.

Let me say I did know that a change was coming and that it would require me to jump through the hoops that they set up (all in the name of improved security - and with what I just went through with them on the address change lord knows they needed it). So I was ready when the page telling me I had to create all new user names, passwords, pins, security question answers...the whole 9 yards.

While filling out the form, all I could think of was "Kids, this-piece-of-paper's-got-47-words-37-sentences-58-words-we-wanna-know-details-of-the-crime-time-of-the-crime-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-you-gotta-say-pertaining-to-and-about-the-crime-I-want-to-know-arresting-officer's-name-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-you-gotta-say", and talked for forty-five minutes and nobody understood a word that he said, but we had fun filling out the forms and playing with the pencils on the bench there,and I filled out the massacre with the four part harmony, and wrote it down there, just like it was, and everything was fine and I put down the pencil, and I turned over the piece of paper, and there, there on the other side, in the middle of the other side, away from everything else on the other side, in parentheses, capital letters, quotated, read the following words:

("KID, HAVE YOU REHABILITATED YOURSELF?")

Hell, I had barely gotten over the same type of experience when AT&T switched over to Cingular's computer system (you see, this is Sprint switching to Nextel, the 2nd customer service rep I talked to this morning confirmed it).

So anyway, last night I created and answered. Then came the magic moment.....I attempted to log in. The new user name was invalid, the new password was invalid. So I click on the "forgot user name button to get them to tell me what it was I just created (obviously some 3 headed republican type animal) and they send me back something completely different than I had just typed in.

In all my wisdom, I attempted to log in with what they said I used for a user name....user name invalid. By this time I am getting just a tad frustrated. After all, I just want to download a f#@& ing ring tone (I still have "Time" but am running out of patience.

Then, I go through the forgot user name process again just to see if they are consistent and of course they aren't. I get the name I had originally entered. Now it's time for the password.

Type,type,type,type,type (it had to be 6 to 10 characters and a combination of numbers and letters).....password invalid. Click - forgot password, type user name, type pin....pin invalid.

While all this is going on, Della, the lovely NK's cpu is acting up, seems to be some registry issues so the sloooooooooowneeeeeeeees is contributing to the level of frustration and I meekly surrender all the while wanting to throw phone and computer out the window but since we moved the office into a windowless room I just deflatedly shuffle out of the room and down the stairs to watch the Daily Show (dammit I forgot it was a rerun).

Intermission: Take a break, have a beer, maybe a glass of wine or a martini while you sing that favorite movie house theme, "Let's all go to the lobby".

I'll be back in a minute with part 2.

Sprinting to get Nexteled, Part 2

Are you back? How was your drink or did you bring it back with you?

The story continues:

Fresh and fit this morning I call Sprint to splain the issue, quite frankly, I did not think much of their new and improved system.

"C" from outer slobovia takes my call and attempts to get things fixed. After we get the user name issue settled we move on to the password. He says he will send me temp pw that I can will get via text message. It goes to NK's phone, just like the ring tone last night.

I once again explain to "C" at Sprint that the text message is not getting to the right phone. After waiting on hold for about 5 minutes "C" comes back and attempts to correct the problem. After a couple of minutes the man from O.S. says that all is now well, thanks me for using Sprint and with trepidation and skepticism I end our conversation.

Since the battery on Della is getting a little weak (my fitness is coming into question and I'm no longer feeling fresh) I trod on upstairs (I caught a slight cold from the Kaos family when I talked to CK on the phone the other day so I was sitting in front of a very nice fire in the living room) to give Della a power boost and make another attempt to get my ring tone.

While I am able to access my account, unlike before I still cannot get the system to send the download message to my phone, the download message goes straight to NK's phone and it's back to Sprint customer service for me.

This time I get lucky and get someone on the phone apparently from this country. Not only does she know what she is doing, after a brief explanation of the problem, she knows that because of the "new" Nextel way of doing things, I will have to create new user names, passwords, pins and go through another refrain of Alice's Restaurant for each phone on the account.

Bottom line, before yesterday I could manage each line with one log in. Now that we have 3 phones, if I want to do something special to a particular line, I have to log in to that unit.

I told the young lady that this was not an improvement for the customer, she said it was for her, I said I thought maybe that the customer base might be dissatisfied with that and that I hoped that "this call is being monitored for quality purposes".

I did finally get my ring tone and now if Obama ever calls me I'll hear Time Has Come Today.

Thanks Nextel!

Economics 101 - What has to change and it's not pretty

Change is rolling off of the tongues of just about everyone these days. Washington insiders are promising change as a means to survive the onslaught of the real advocate of change. But what change is necessary, what will really take place and are we really ready for the depth of change that many indicate is required to avoid the type of devastation projected if serious change does not occur?

I happened to catch a portion of Bill Moyers Journal today and the subject was America's long term economic solvency. In their book, Where does the money go, Scott Bittle and Jean Johnson
tell us the things we need to know to understand the Federal Budget crisis, and like it or not, it is a crisis that if not addressed will seriously impact the future.


As of 1/31/08, the deficit stood at 9.2 TRILLION DOLLARS.

The most important change needs to eliminate that debt. That means tough choices for everyone and it will be up to the people of this country to let our elected officials know that we no longer need to build a million dollar overpass so that two corporate wheat farmers can avoid sending a truck five miles out of its way to get to the other side of the freeway.

When Bush took control he inherited a surplus. The real questions is, do the citizens of this country have what it takes to return to that level? Spending cuts and tax increases are going to be necessary; will those running for office be bold enough to go there or will it be more of the same? Time will tell.

Or maybe we just need a president like Dave. When it came time to come up with some cash for a childrens shelter, he gathered all his advisors together and asked them if they really needed all of their little pet projects like making people feel better about a car they already owned. No earmarks, no pork, that is what we must demand.

Sunday Scene

Someone has finally put this guy in his place:



















and it took some African women to to it.


In other happenings, Limbaugh calls Obama a "blank canvas" that you can fill in with any of your dreams and he will promise that they come true.


In Minnesota it looks like Al Franken will be the Democratice candidate for the Senate. Some of the party faithful fear he will be seen as a joke. You know, kind of like making Jessie Ventura your Governor!


There has been a new call for gun control in Illinois. It's funny how this happens after someone shoots up a school or a mall, taking numerous innocent lives. I don't think we have enough public places we are willing to sacrifice before everyone finally accepts the notion that a nation armed with assult weapons may not be the best idea.

Notice I'm not against handguns and shotguns in general. I do think however that background checks for any firearms purchase should include a peek at the mental health of the individual.

In a related matter, a wilderness expansion bill is in limbo because Republicans have added an amendment to allow individuals to bring loaded guns into our National Parks. The amendment, sponsored by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma was co-sponsored by Presidential candidate John McCain. A Coburn spokesmen says that any attempt to avoid a vote is an attempt to protect Hillary Clinton from a tough vote at the expense of the second amendment.

There are so many things I could say about this type of crap but I'll just leave it alone because I would rant for days on end and you wouldn't read it all anyway.


On the lighter side.......

New York Police said they arrested the 45-year-old employee Friday evening after receiving complaints that he was driving erratically in the park in Lower Manhattan. He faces charges of reckless endangerment and intentional injury to an animal. Three pigeons and two seagulls were killed.

I'll bet he was slated to clean up some well targeted statues in the park.

Saturday Musing

It's Saturday and time to find out one thing that you must be dying to know.....







I turned out to be a rather dull donut:









Yep, a Boston Creme, plain and simple.


As a Boston Creme donut,

You have a tough exterior.

No one wants to mess with you. But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.

You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.

Breakfast Conversation

Lady with one ear sitting next to me - I hear birds.

Moi - your crazy.

Lady - No, I hear them.

Moi - I just saw the shadow of one.

Lady - see, I did hear one.

Moi - Just saw another shadow.

Lady - did you hear that one.

Moi - no, I don't hear imaginary things I only see them.

Lady - together we make one person.

Moi - sounds like blog material.

Death in the (Blog) Family

I am sad to report that a portion of my being is no longer with me. Late this evening my vehicle to the world suffered what appears to be a rather painful passing.

Numerous attempts to revive Mr. Fuji have failed and I have asked the coroner to declare the time of death as 11:15 PM 2/13/08.

With that in mind, it may be difficult for me to post for a few days since any relationship I have had with the aforementioned device will be difficult to overcome.

It is with great sorrow that I must use Ms. Dell to report this passing and I may be reluctant to continue with this vehicle during my period or mourning.

Peace be with you Mr. Fuji, you have served me well.

Wordless Wednesday

Normally a Wordless Wednesday would be, well, wordless.

But today, I got words. I'll give you your picture
















but I also have a few bones to gnaw on and they just won't wait.


First, Crime and Punishment and I don't mean the book.
In 1964 Jerry Erving sat drinking in a bar when his friend pulled out a gun and shot the bartender. As a participant in the robbery, Jerry grabbed 3 bottles of whiskey and left.
He was sentenced to life in prison and is still there today. The shooter, Larry Hall, was paroled in 1988, yet for 3 bottles of whiskey, a man sits in prison.
Today, for the 3rd time, his lawyer will try and get a board to set a hearing to commute the sentence. The board includes the governor, secretary of state and attorney general. They said no last time.

Second, War and Peace, again not the book.

Last night on "A Daily Show" (hopefully the last one although I must say even with the writers on strike the quality of the show remained the same), William Kristol, a repeat guest from the Weekly Standard attempted to convince us that history will portray our Iraq involvement in a favorable manner.

Iraq will become a stable force in the Middle East and the Shia and Sunni will soon join hands and sing Kumbaya. Of course the caveat is that we will have to maintain a significant presence.
That we should not have been there is the first place evidently will not have an impact on what must be a drug induced vision of the conservative rights future.

I've Got Music

I didn't have much going on today and it has been so cold (how cold is it.....it is so cold the hair between my cheeks froze) that I only went outside today to put my latest Netflix view in the mailbox.

So with nothing going on and after a little carpet putting practice I decided to look around Mr. Gore's WWW.

After reading CK my travels took me to David where I found the latest limerick competition. After placing my entry and looking around his site some more I found another site worth a look....In The Gutter and a wonderful post. I may even steal the title of this post sometime.

It's is there I found the answer to lifes biggest mystery (at least it has been bugging me for awhile.

When her post popped up, I was rewarded with instant music and I found the source at the bottom.

So it is now part of my blog. Enjoy or turn your volume down, it's your choice.

I Don't Like Mondays

Every weekday at noon, some dweeb from the middle of USA nowhere has an opportunity to request the first song on the "Classic Cafe", the noontime show on the local classic rock station.

Today, NK and I were unfortunate enough to be a part of a sorry history. The guy said you probably won't play it or don't have it (since no other station will) but I would like to hear I Don't Like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats (Whothefuckisthat?).

I knew immediately that this would probably not be my type of song.

I wish he had been correct, not only do I dislike Mondays, the song was worse; I'm glad the rats have returned to boomtown.

Brain Droppings - The difference between men & women

I've often marveled at the ability of the female of the species to remember every single solitary thing and to connect things that seem completely unrelated.

I've been amazed but I never really understood it.

That is until now.

This explains it.

Who Can You Trust

I have struggled all day to think of something I could post. I had a few things but they required research and I just have not had the time (even retired people have things to do) to finish my queries.

Then I got the call.

It came from Sprint.

I did not get to the phone in time, so I had to check my voicemail.

It seems I had ordered something from them (unbeknownst to moi) and they were calling to confirm the order.

Needless to say, I was curious. I wanted to know what it was that I had ordered so I returned the call.

Thankfully, the person that left me the voicemail spoke english. She did speak a little fast and the enunciation, therefore, could have been a little better. I only had to listen to it 3 times to get the order number and return phone number.

Unfortunately, when I called Sprint, I did not get to talk to the same english speaking person. I think I was connected with someone that was eating oatmeal at the time of our conversation.

Maybe it is the headsets they wear but invariably whenever I talk to someone in customer service (disservice?) I have trouble understanding them and today was no exception.

I found myself nodding alot and saying yes or OK, just like I used to do when some incessant babbler droned on and on while I was trying to get something done at work (someone like Rudy - GG knows who that is).

Anyway, as I babble on, it seems that yesterday, someone from Margate, Florida was able to convince Sprint that they were me and the address on my account was changed and they ordered a new phone (to be shipped to them at my expense).

I have the address and through the magic of the internet reverse phone book listing, even the name and land line phone number of the person at that address. I have called the phone number 3 times.....no answer.

The disturbing part of all of this is that Sprint told me that they were able to correctly provide my password to my account and.....


get this.....



my Social Security Number.

At this point, miss oatmeal garbeled mouth continued to ramble on and I became slack jawed.

Wait, hold on, I said. Stop! They gave Sprint my SSN? Do you know what that means?

Sound of no concern followed!

Our conversation continued with little understanding on my part (oatmeal residue) except for the part that it was important that I change my password (I had already done that) and that they would not accept any orders without the correct password (gee, that's a novel concept that I had to question since evidently the person that ordered the phone had already given them both my password and my SSN).

So we parted ways in a rather inamicable fashion. I don't know what they did, but I checked Equifax to see if any odd new accounts or charges had appeared (everything looks OK right now)and changed the address on my Sprint account back to the original (miss mushmouth said she had done that but when I checked it was still the address in Fla.)

The only other thing I have done was to call said number in Fla. (from the reverse listing) and finally left a vmx telling the voicemail that I was considering talking to our local gendarmes about possible fraud.

FI Revived

I haven't given this in awhile but this guy is more than deserving of an FI award. In fact this has to be the most insensitive bastard on earth. Here is the story.
Source: USA Today

A Basque businessman who hit and killed a teenage bicyclist in 2004 has sued the boy's family for nearly $30,000 — to pay for crash damage to his Audi A8 and for a rental car.

Tomas Delgado claims that the nighttime crash caused more than $20,000 damage and that a rental car cost him nearly $9,000.

"I'm also a victim in all of this, you can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine," Delgado told the paper. He was not charged in the crash that killed 17-year-old Enaitz Iriondo, who was not wearing a helmet or reflective clothing.

Iriondo's family was awarded nearly $50,000 after Delgado's insurance company admitted he had been driving too fast.

Even though he dropped his lawsuit, he still gets a fucking idiot award.

Yea Giants

I'm glad the Giants won the Super Bowl yesterday.

Now that I have that said, lately the only reason I watch the game is to see what the ad agencies can come up with to entertain us.

Generally, unless it has to do with beer, I won't remeber an ad from one minute to the next, except during the super bowl.

Some years are better than others but this year was not one of them. There were relatively few really good ads.

My favorite was a Budweiser ad (they usually have the best) with the dalmation training the clydesdale.

2nd in my book was the doritos commercial with the guy and the mouse trap.

3rd - Shaq as a jockey for vitaman water.

4th - a tie between 3 bud light commercials, the invention of the wheel, fire and flight (options no longer offered for the last two).

5th - Coke - with Stewie, Underdog and Charlie Brown

The worst ad was for Bridgestone; only because of Richard Simmons.

The ad with poor taste, CareerBuilder.com with the heart jumping out of the womans chest.

The most disappointing but could have been great; the ad for Sobe. The lizards were good, they should have left the woman out.

Over all I would rate this years effort no better than a 5 out of a possible 10 and maybe even a 4.

To view all of the ads go here

F*ing Award

I'm sending out a big hearty F*ing award to the Austrian Village of Fucking. No one could possibly deserve a good fucking more than them (except the people that keep stealing the signs).





Are the residents called Fuckers?



















What would you be learning at the Fucking High School?






















The residents want everyone to leave their Fucking sign alone.

Dot Dot Dot

Have you seen the butt on that Clinton woman.....and speaking of Hill, the other day in Arkansas she said that if elected she would take the subsidies from the oil companies to develop alternative sources of energy....in addition to the hot air she is already producing? If she just captured all that, she could leave the subsidies in place to avoid a further increase in gasoline prices....like paying european prices.



If you stick a q-tip in your ear and the gag reflex kicks in does that mean you put it in too far?


Someone new is running for President on the Republican side. It was revealed the other day....by Dick Armey on Tucker. And the new candidate is John Wayne, Armey said it twice so it must be so. And he said that the Republican mainstream was unhappy with him. Is it because he is dead?


Seen on bumpers all over the country: If You Want a Nation Ruled By Religion, Move to Iran...
Of Course It Hurts: You're Getting Screwed by an Elephant....Where Are We Going? And Why Are We In This Handbasket?....and, At Least Nixon Resigned.


Have you heard....evidently the new economic stimulus package that will not provide any tax rebate relief to millions of retired citizens contains a loophole that will provide a tax rebate check to illegal immigrants. My question is this (thanks NK)....if the IRS can find them to give them a check, why can't Immigration and Naturalization find them to deport their ass?
