A quick tear across the tabs:
Private Pay Shrinks to Historic Lows. Hey, our newest car is nine years old. We’d love to help out the automakers by buying something new, but between the taxes, the raise-freeze, increased costs and so forth, it’s not happening this year.
On the same subject, Ed Morrissey says that if we haven’t figured it out before, now is a good time to understand that we’re in serious trouble, since Obama has decided to double down on the very disaster he whines about inheriting.
Financial Reform Bill “a disaster”. Who is surprised?
Gold rising. Wish I could afford some; see above.
Confucius Classroom. California schools teaching elementary school students Chinese, with China footing the bill. The teacher says, “with their support, it’s a lot easier.” The funniest line: the schools are convinced they have enough “checks and balances” to keep out propaganda, you know, like the Texas schools social studies books! China-lovin’ Tom Friedman will be so happy his heart will come out of his chest and fall down on the floor!
Sorry. Tom Friedman’s happy heart reminded me of that scene. I am sick, remember, and on cough meds. Thank you, Dong!
This Sestak story reminds me of the bungling, corrupt leadership of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22. I don’t think the story is going away no matter how many times the WH investigates itself and finds that it always never said it would give Sestak a job. Or at least there is “no proof”. Kind of like “no controlling legal authority.”
Go to Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day? Not me, I’m just the Commander in Chief. Obama seems profoundly bored by any aspect of the presidency that does not advance his domestic agenda. What does not bore him, inconveniences him, like the oil spill in the Gulf. This will be his second “getaway” since that happened, what, 35 days ago? And patriotic stuff like observing Memorial Day appears to both bore and inconvenience.
I know, it’s tiresome, but the thought goes round and round: just imagine if it were Bush.
Storm Clouds in Ukraine; it’s important.
A story that bears keeping in mind, down the road. I too wonder if these three will show up for their court date. Sounds very odd, indeed.
The Banker and the Missionary Inspiring.
“I kind of see myself as a man of God, and being like Joseph”. Also inspiring.
Yes, this IS a great commercial. And it makes me long to have bad-ass sock monkey with a “Mom” tattoo!
Head lice: No laughing matter, and yet, I laughed
Martyrs: They’re not just for the olden days
Coupla Catholic guys sittin’ around talking spirituality and gnosticism
