hell’s bureaucrats

Filed under: Doodling — TCA @ 12:22 am

The stuff that they do on the Daily Show isn’t even an exaggeration. It’s an understatement.

I can easily imagine the Daily Show’s Samantha Bee performing a parody of Fish and Wildlife Service Assistant Secretary Julie MacDonald.

I can see her in my mind’s eye tormenting scientists and researchers that she obviously does not respect and is incapable of understanding.

She’s their superior at the the Fish and Wildlife Service. There she is at her desk happily sending an e-mail to her 13 year-old online games buddy.

Sometimes she glances up from the keyboard with a faint scowl on her face. She feels put upon. In the room with her are a whole bunch of distractions.

Someone wants to talk to her about an endangered smelt. A smelt, can you believe it? Someone else wants to talk about some endangered bird. A flycatcher! Oh bother!

revoke the credit card

Filed under: Doodling — TCA @ 10:08 pm

I praised the Support Our Troops tax proposal of $50 billion per year for 5 years in Lieberman’s brain. And I suggested that this new tax should be combined with a proposal to balance the federal budget.

I forgot to mention why I praised these proposals. How long do you think a pay-as-you-go war would last?

Lieberman’s brain

Filed under: Doodling — TCA @ 1:42 am

He vowed to bring morality to government when he was Al Gore’s running mate. Joe Lieberman could learn a lot from Deepak Chopra.

Be that as it may, Lieberman’s brain is showing signs of activity. He has proposed a Support our Troops Tax of $50 billion per year for 5 years.

Combine his proposal with a push by Senate Democrats to balance the budget by 2012–and you’ve got fully functioning synapses.

Why should your grandchildren have to pay for the mistakes of George W. Bush? The U.S. is borrowing to pay the interest on the National Debt. The interest for fiscal 2006 was $405.9 billion. The National Debt is currently $8.8 trillion.

Bill Clinton balanced the budget. He’d just started to pay off the National Debt when he left office. Something to keep in mind on Election Day.
