American Pie? Republicans Just Can’t Cut It

Republicans better wake up. Common sense must tell them they are playing russian roulette with their country’s future

Dark Days Lay Ahead

As the world economy continues it’s dive into new and unchartered economic waters, the possibility of the global financial system descending into the depths of another great depression is not entirely out of the question. Meanwhile America’s Republican Senators have continued their objections in arguing for a much weaker level of fiscal stimulus funding and focus compared to the Bill approved by the House of Representatives. It is time to remind them who the American people voted for last November.

Action not Play Acting is Needed

The Senate of the United States may not be a modern day reflection of Nero’s Rome, but political fiddling and plotting in its chamber is perhaps just as flagrant. Any fillibustering or finessing which may subsequently occur as a result of Friday’s non binding pronouncement will certainly threaten the potency of the Democrat’s original stimulus package. This is something the country simply cannot afford. The domestic economy is now aflame and Americans are alight with growing anxiety over the alarming rise in unemployment and the increasing number of corporate failures. Frustrated and feeling helpless, their concerns are not helped by the mean spirited approach most Republicans have taken to dealing with the crisis.

If the Cap fits the US Must Wear It

Every country now finds itself trapped within the maze of a “Made in the USA” financial firestorm.  No one yet knows the safest way out, or how long it might take. The long term cost to each country economically, socially and strategically is inestimable at this stage.  Of one thing we can be certain however, no one will ever know the total cost in human suffering.

Leaderless Republicans with No Direction

Common sense must tell them they are playing russian roulette with their country’s future. Many appear to be still nursing  wounds from their general election defeat. 

This irresponsible lot also endorses the controversial radio jock and early college dropout, Rush Limbaugh. I wonder how many of them spoke out against Limbaugh when he made his now infamous public statement, “I hope Obama fails” following Mr Obama’s election as President?

Birds of a Feather

What a pity Guantanamo is closing. It would be a great remote location for a low power, broadcast facility for a radio jock with a vile attitude. ( i.e. Limbaugh with a loud hailer) Imagine having to put up with such unadulterated garbage for the term of one’s natural life. Now that really would be torture.

Limbaugh fans must be blind.  Surely they must see that this individual uses his standard tirade of economically ignorant, race baiting rants for one purpose and one purpose only. Simply to boost the ratings of his radio program. All of his public utterings are aimed at promoting his own “economic success”. He doesn’t care about the issues. Somewhere in the past he must have recalled Bill Clinton’s campaign reminder, “It’s the economy – stupid”. Well Rush went prospecting with controversy one day and found plenty of stupids alright. They have made him a wealthy man. What kind of system would pay $30 million a year to a nitwit like Limbaugh? Answers to many of America’s problems are to be found within that simple conundrum. It would make a fine Phd thesis.

  1. I like the idea of letting Rush work from Gitmo. He is such an advocate for keeping it, how wonderful it was for the people imprisoned there. I say, let’s be generous and go ahead and keep Gitmo for Rush. And, perhaps, if the ACLU or others pursue war crimes and criminals, Rush could hold local social get togethers with W and Cheney, Rummy, and Karl. And they’ll appreciate that those in charge are armed to the teeth with big guns.
