"The government's view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
--President Ronald Reagan, 1986
The supposed "stimulus" bill (read: pork scam) is going to prolong the economic woes of this country far longer than a few corporate failings would have. I would like to apologize right now to my grandchildren and their children for the actions of the criminals in Washington D.C. and their whores in the private sector willing bleed me dry of my hard earned money. I think my tag line for all my upcoming posts will be simply - "Bastards!"

I learned today that all the employees of our company are required to take one week off without pay before the end of March. Hello? Washington? Where's our bailout? I know that a week without pay is better than no job at all. However, why don't they give me my tax money back instead of spending "$150,000,000 to provide emergency relief to eligible producers of livestock, honey bees, and farm-raised fish to aid in the reduction of losses due to disease, adverse weather, or other conditions, such as blizzards and wildfires, as determined by the Secretary".
Corrupt Bastards - Every one of them!!! You people need to wake up! You get what you vote for. If you voted for one single incumbent, I can only hope that you are looking back at your voting propensity with great dismay. The Founding Fathers are churning in their graves.
I'm signing off to go have a siezure in the quiet comfort of my padded room.

Just wanted to share a sunrise with folks because I have really been neglectful of my blog as of late. We have a grandson on the way so we've been pretty busy with baby shower preparations and just general grandparent stuff. That sounds really wierd to be speaking of myself as a grandparent! Ack!

I know it sounds bizarre, but I think this would really taste good! You can get maple bacon or a donut so why not maple bacon on a donut? Homer Simpson should know about these treats!
