In north carolina they want to pass a law banning welfare recipients from playing the lottery. The one thing that comes to mind is how do they plan to check if the person buying a ticket is on welfare? May be a national lottery ID?
The more levels of bureaucracy the better government works for you. Don’t worry these programs will be paid in full with the monies saved from clamping down on social leeches.
And all the while, military spending continues out of control… maybe in a couple of years our troops will be home from Afghanistan, which I’m sure will cut hundreds of millions from our Defense budget – and we can still maintain enough of a Defense budget to assist in securing peace & stability throughout our home & sphere of influence, but what does the GOP and the Bagger Horde say about that? They will say we “surrendered” to the terrorists and, screw domestic spending we’ll *increase* our addiction to the MIC…
It’s absolutely heartbreaking Bass. The MIC is so powerful in the U.S. that it runs the politicians, not the other way around. They will have no problem ginning up another war.
Oh, but it’s all about jobs!! We are borrowing money at a stupid rate, just so we can support all this crazy military spending, worthless bases, out dated and useless military bases, and dum foreign aid. No sane person would be for this unless they were bribed. Oh, wait….
Hi Sno! Yes, unfortunately it’s all about corruption and the hunger for more money and power. Certainly every country needs the means to defend itself, but the U.S. has gone far beyond that necessity.
Yep… all in the name of so-called “freedom”.
Indeed, cpad! The MIC has possession of some verrrrry potent meth…
Crap. The coughing part of this cold is starting, so I am going to bed at a disgustingly early time. Peace, love and hugs to you all!!
I hope you get a good sleep pal.
Take your vits and drink lots of fluids!
Back at you, sno. Damn colds and flu – everyone’s been hit this year. Get better soon.
G’nite, Sno. Get some rest. That cold does seem to linger.
Rest up, Sno! And as Haruko says – take your vits!!
Sorry to hear you’re getting a cold, Sno. Take care, lots of tea with honey and lemon – and vits! Be well.
Peace, love and hugs to you.
Bag lady! Hi Cpad.

I’m happy to hear that Mary Jo White is the permanent replacement for Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. It gives me hope for the next four years.

Yeah, maybe she’ll police those brokers. Rat bastids.
Think anyone would notice if I named my wifi “FBI Surveillance Van”?
HA! We have the technology, you know!! 😀
😀 Watch the moving vans line up!
hah! I thought about calling mine “Death Phish Trap” or something to keep prying eyes away.
Or torture them with ” Free Nekked Pictures ” 😀
hee! Hi RF!
Hi Orcas! I saw your Hesse post upthread – thahks! it was marvelous!
I read “Steppenwolf” (my only Hesse) and it’s very, VERY good! (spoiler alert – it isn’t about the guys who did “Magic Carpet Ride” 😉 )
I think I’ll read Steppenwolf first. Good band too!
If we were closer to the ski area (or a Starbucks :D), “DEA_MOBILE_1” would be a hoot!
And change the number every few days! LOLZ!
Yes! Poor Starbucks 😦 ( 😀 )
anyone still out?
I’m in! Hi Jack!
dude whee did everyone go?
Off on a food porn thread – something about cooking cinnamon rolls in a waffle iron and making a large bowl of cream-cheese icing… My tongue would have a grid pattern – waffle irons are WAY too slow for THAT kind of treat!
Yup. Hi, RF!
