Blood in the carpets, rust on the tools--at that point is it really any better than a back-alley abortion?
In the "what a fxxxing SURPRISE" category, we have this story telling us that Rob "Meathead" Reiner is endorsing Hillary Clinton. You may recall my discussion of Meathead's "the middle class doesn't need a tax cut" rally in Iowa City back in 2001; Mr. Really Rich Hollywood Liberal thinks he knows better than I do how much money I need. That's Hillary is all about; seen her stupid health care plans lately?
This I heard about this morning. I suggested to my coworkers that perhaps someone just stole a bunch of railroad spikes in order to take them to a recycling center. You can get some fair money for "scrap iron" and they don't usually ask where you got it.
It could be sabotage. Or it could be some moron who wants another hit of his drug of choice and somehow found himself a crowbar. (He probably hocked the crowbar, too.) It's a bit premature to call it "attempted terrorism"--if anyone is, which I don't even know.
Another Democrat wants to use taxes to fix something.
I thought taxes didn't change peoples' behavior? Democrats are always telling us that you don't get economic growth when you cut income taxes, despite the fact that it's worked every time it's been tried. So how will an extra $0.50 tax on gasoline reduce demand for it?
Democrats just want to tax everything, as much as possible, in order to have more money to spend on socializing whatever they can and perpetuating poverty.
"...most [of the revenue] would go elsewhere including for highway construction, mass transit, paying for Social Security and health programs and to help the poor pay energy bills." Emphasis mine. See what I mean?
Finally, John Edwards is a moron. What the hell? He doesn't have any right to make a decision about his eight-year-old's education and moral upbringing? The kid is supposed to make up his own mind?
He wants to be in charge of the country, but he doesn't think he has the right to be in charge of how his own damn son is raised?
What kind of leader would that make him? What kind of father does that make him? What kind of weed has he been smoking?
If that doesn't make you want to vote against him, nothing will.
