The World's Smallest Political Quiz

Q: How do you say "Ronald Reagan" in Czech?

A: Apparently, it's pronounced Vaclav Klaus.


Another Bailout

Someone once said that it is the unnecessary rules that weaken the necessary ones. In similar fashion, it is the unnecessary bailouts that weaken the argument(s) in favor of the necessary ones.

As all the corporate fat cats line up to the trough to get "their share" of the trillions in funny money that the Congress is doling out in their latest vote-buying scheme, it seems that there is yet another group waiting in the wings for a bailout. And if they don't get bailed out, the economy really will go down the crapper.

It's the taxpayers.

Who's going to bail them out?


A Simple Request

Would it be too much to ask for this country to declare a one-year moratorium on the word "historic" in relation to the recent election and the incoming administration?


No Hope For Change

The analysis of the recent election is largely over, and we see no need to be beating a dead horse. Moving right along, it seems time for some predictions for the new administration:

-- Affirmative Action will return, with a vengeance. Any opposition to it will be dismissed as 'racism". In fact, any and all opposition to the administration's policies will be dismissed as 'racism".

-- White, heterosexual, Christian males will be increasingly marginalized.

-- In keeping with Hollyweird's obsession with political correctness, there will be major Black characters in every TV show.

-- The Patriot Act will be abused in ways its harshest critics might not have imagined.

-- The current recession will deepen into a depression, from which this country will not recover.

-- Christmas at the White House will be supplanted by Kwanzaa. What little mention of Christmas there is will include a Black Santa.

-- What started in the '60s as "Black Pride" (and what should have been properly Black self-respect but devolved all to quickly into Black arrogance) will make its return. The charge will be led by Black females, largely uneducated, and with a chip on their shoulder the size of a telephone pole.

-- And remember all those crappy "generic" products from the '70s? All that stuff that had no taste or fell apart? They're already back.

-- Tawana Brawley will win the Nobel Peace Prize. (OK, we're only kidding with this one. Apparently, we've been reading too much Ann Coulter.)

The frog is in the pot, and the water is getting hotter.

God help America.


It's All Over But The Shouting

And the Buyer's Remorse, which we predict will set in along about March.

As a side note, just as the Ponytail Guy was the poster child for the Clinton era, that cretin who thought that The Empty Suit would take care of her mortgage and gas for her car will wind up being the poster child for the new administration.

God help America.
