It was recently reported that over $60 billion dollars worth of America’s treasure has been “lost” as we’ve frolicked in the fog of Iraq and Afghanistan. I have yet to hear a fiscally conservative teabagger complain about this. Why?
How ironic is a huge replica of the Statue of Liberty perched on top of a liquor store? Liquor, the en-slaver of millions, Miss Liberty, the embodiment of freedom.
Driving through a run down section of Wheeling, WV I noticed a long defunct store called Trio Stout Shop. I presume it once sold clothing for stout people. Looks like they failed to identify a coming trend.
How is it possible that Iowans can permit same-sex marriage then turned around and pick Michelle Bachmann in their straw vote?
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the irony of Standard and Poor’s downgrading of the US credit rating? Wasn’t it S&P who, as a major player in the approval of toxic assets, helped tank the housing market along with many of the world’s major economies? Wasn’t it S&P who gave an AAA rating to all those infamous Wall Street derivatives that really weren’t worth a bottle of pirate piss? Is this the same S&P who some now say made a two trillion-dollar arithmetic error in their decision to downgrade America? I’m beginning to think that the S and P in S&P may be just common four-letter words.
“You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. You can lead a man to knowledge but you can’t make him think.” These blues lyrics are unfortunately too familiar to a teacher.
