Elephant cover

"The fact is that recent economic numbers have been terrifying, not just in the United States but around the world. Manufacturing, in particular, is plunging everywhere. Banks aren’t lending; businesses and consumers aren’t spending. Let’s not mince words: This looks an awful lot like the beginning of a second Great Depression."
Thus saith Paul K of Times Square.

Again and again our man Kruggles of Rouge Gap -- butler to the thinking elite -- yelps into the gathering whirlwind his deepest-felt fear:

"I’m sure that Congress will pass a stimulus plan, but I worry that the plan may be delayed and/or downsized...."
... and by whom?

Why those terrible, awful, no good, very bad Republicans, of course:

"Look, Republicans are not going to come on board. Make 40% of the package tax cuts, they’ll demand 100%. Then they’ll start the thing about how you can’t cut taxes on people who don’t pay taxes (with only income taxes counting, of course) and demand that the plan focus on the affluent. Then they’ll demand cuts in corporate taxes. And Mitch McConnell is already saying that state and local governments should get loans, not aid — which would undermine that part of the plan, too."
Damn! These ruthless head table Dembos and their wise minions like Paul the K are willing to use the puffy bodies of just any old Repub from Babbit, Babbit and Bull as their "human shield" when they screw us -- as they surely will.

Argggh. It's a tactic worthy of ... Hamas!

Son of Uncle Sam:

Ow, 'When A Stranger Calls' is the classic movie of that senario. And the stalker keeps repeating,"Why havn't you checked the children," because he's torn them apart w/ his bare hands and is waiting for her up stairs. Interesting how situtations parallel indeed Sir. To bad Carol Kane, the star of that flick, never ran for a congretional seat, she could deliver all news in her old charecters. 'Miracle Max's wife' would be a particularly soothing bearer of bad news.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
