“Let them eat their own Goodwill Store bootstraps!”

Fitting that in 2011, the Republicans are branching out from Ayn Rand’s political philosophy to one once attributed to an Austrian in a foreign land (insert Arnold Schwarzenegger joke…or joke about anything involving “insertion” and “Arnold Schwarzenegger”…here)…Marie Antoinette:


Republicans proposed cutting $832 million – or 12 percent – from this year’s budget for the federal nutrition program that provides food for low-income mothers and children…Two analysts from the liberal research and advocacy group Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Zoe Neuberger and Robert Greenstein, said Monday that the cuts could mean turning away as many as 475,000 people from the Women, Infants and Children program if food prices continue to rise.

Let them eat, uh, nothing!

Although, you have to admit it’s not like poor infants and children are going to vote for John Boehner, let alone donate to him, anyway. He saves his tears for those who can afford to play in his foursome.

White House Propaganda Machine Gears up



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
