So Long

Well, folks, I'm closing in on my 500th Report and that's going to be enough--at least for right now. I need a break.
To my loyal supporters--Thanks! I'll keep you posted on any new Net projects.

Now, if you will excuse me, the 50-100 mph winds that have been slamming Juneau for the past few weeks have finally subsided and I will take this as an invitation to slide down the hill and into my favorite barstool.

Don't give the assclowns a break,

Aptly Named For That Other Famous Tea Party--The One Attended By Alice?

Rest easy, folks. Our Tea Party patriots have finally found the solution to the current economic crisis. Minnesota's pious ex-governor and presidential hopeful, Tim Pawlenty, just laid it out for us in his finest Evangelical style:
"We need to cut corporate taxes!"

2/3 of American corporations pay no income tax. Do not adjust your computer screen, you read that figure correctly: TWO THIRDS.
Although my income put me below the official poverty line, last year I paid more income tax than ExxonMobil, General Electric, Bank of America, and Citigroup combined.
Despite record profits in the billions, our corrupt tax system allowed these giant corporations to pay nothing. ZERO. ZIP. ZILCH.
Now Bible-thumping hypocrites and phony patriots like Pawlenty want to give our millionaire Big Businessmen . . . More Tax Breaks.

Welcome to the alternate universe, the Alice-In-Wonderland calculus of Tea Party economics:
Tax breaks for those already paying no tax.

And who do you suppose is expected to pick up the slack for the patriotic millionaires cheating the treasury out of trillions?

Workers Rebel Against Millionaire "Populists"

It is heartening to see blue-collar Americans finally, finally hitting the streets--to protest the union-busting, stooge governors whose Big Business manipulators want to use the current economic crisis to cut wages.

The worst case is in Ohio, which, appropriately, is getting the biggest protests.
Millionaire Tea Partier, Gov. John Kasich, claims to be an "anti-elitist populist."
Slinging bullshit like this with a straight face is a true accomplishment
Kasich worked 8 years at Lehman Brothers, the absolute poster child for too-big-to-fail elitism. It was the greed and fraudulent practices of Lehman Brothers that triggered the recession we're all paying for.
This anti-elitist populist then went to work for Rupert Murdoch, the employer of Glenn Beck (the Fox News assclown presently apologizing for an on-air anti-Semitic rant.)

What an insult to the country. Do rich conservatives really believe that blue-collar Americans are so stupid that they'll accept a crypto-Fascist like Glenn Beck and a Wall Street shyster like John Kasich as populists?
They're getting their answer in the streets of Columbus.
