What Did They Talk About Today?
I took this headline straight from the EP Times front page www.elpasotimes.com
Customs officials announce week's seizures (5:28 p.m.) - They had two epileptic and a stroke.
I'm just kidding, but go ahead and post a comment indicating that I'm an asshole and you hope I get an awful disease.
Here's a little story about illegal immigrants and their value to our community - http://www.elpasotimes.com/news/ci_4800134. They bring 17 billion to the economy but cost local entities hundreds of millions of dollars. I say keep them as long they continue to frequent Wal-Mart. I get a little joy every time a person whom the democrats claim as their own shops at their nemesis, Wal-Mart.
The Health District made the news under the head line "Early state report criticizes EP health district leadership." (http://www.elpasotimes.com/news/ci_4800136) We get it. We fired the guy. Move on. Let's go ahead and hire someone else to beat up on because I need some news here.
Juárez video used to fight horse slaughters - Another headline showing that we are important, we are needed and doggonit people like us. Now if we can only get video of them dumping raw sewage into the river.
Another headline in the EP Times:
Snow flurries reported around El Paso (2:21 p.m.) - In other news - burritos consumed in and around El Paso this morning.
My thoughts of the day? I pissed the Strelz off by posting some suggestions for his show on his forum. His little army of followers were quick to action and I was fried and served over linguine by 8:00 a.m. No big deal to me. It just proved how small his audience really is and how uninviting the whole gang remains. I hear initiation into the group includes doing chores at Shapleigh's house and throwing rocks at the few remaining ASARCO employees.
Panel Finds GOP Broke No Rules in Foley Case Reports the Washington Post. Now if we can stop the shagging of pages we'll be fine.
Another Post headline
House Passes Major Tax Bill - Measure includes $38B in tax breaks for businesses, education costs and energy initiatives.
Please forget you read that. The republicans would never do such a thing.
Headline on Drudge:
Possible Hillary-Obama Presidential Clash Has Senate Abuzz... - Which is different from when they are just buzzed.
Contest! Win a slap on the back if you can come up with the best play on Obama's name. Post your entry into the comments section below.
From one my favorite inside the Beltway rags The Hill
Senate Dems to weigh 9/11 Commission recommendations - If you don't want to read the article, here's a synopsis... Democrats cherry-pick info, which leads to them blaming the President for everything. Also conclude that terrorists responsible for the attacks shouldn't be held responsible given they were economically disadvantaged and were just looking to make a buck.
Thoughts on federal politics
We've got a our blue ribbon panel report and it's food for thought. (By the way, I was confused by the name "blue ribbon" because I initially thought the committee was comprised of award winning cows.)
We should pull all of our troops out of Iraq. So what if they are severely demoralized and the terrorists are handed the full proof plan for defeating the United States. We need to tell our soldiers that the media will dictate their mission and the success of their efforts.
Screw all the Iraqis that will more than likely be killed because of their ethnic moniker after we are gone. Let's help them create a terrorist tuition program for Iraq so that those who want to blow themselves up in crowded places, but can't afford it, can attend school with the privileged students.
When the whole region makes like Hitler and eliminates every Jew they can find, we can be overjoyed at the prospect of another classic like The Diary of Anne Frank and some very gripping movies. Our need to get even with President Bush outweighs our need to preserve a culture, an ethnicity, a religion. Nothing says "tolerance" like letting an intolerant religion wipe out a tolerant religion!
