Happy Birthday to Dad! A big one, I believe - or maybe half a big one. Maybe Polly's Pies instead of a birthday cake?

[And many more!]

I have to thank Robert Ariail for putting into a picture my feelings on the "Pork Spendulus Bill" that was just signed into law yesterday in Denver.

Trojan Pig

Maybe now that it is signed, and all the victory parties are winding down, *someone* will have time to read the 1,419 page monstrosity that we will all be living with for generations to come. Maybe the President can read it on Air Force One on his way home. As long as he circles for a few days before landing.

Prior to the Senate vote, I advised my own senator, Arlen Specter, that should he support this lard-ridden spending spree, I will vote for ANYONE who runs against him in any election, even if it is for county dog-catcher.

[He hasn't responded to me yet. I'll keep you posted.]

Quote du jour:

"When George Washington threw the dollar across the Rappahannock River, he didn't realize he was establishing a precedent for government spending."
