Birther Hypocrisy

Once again, the wingnut birther conspiracy idiots are hollering about President Obama's alleged foreign birth.

Isn't it funny how these same birthers never have anything to say about the fact that their hero John McCain really was born overseas? It's true. You can look it up and see for yourself.

You can bet your last inflated paper dollar that if John McCain had been selected president by the electoral college, those looney-tooney birthers would not have had a damn thing to say about his birth outside of the United States.

Show me a wingnut birther and I'll show you a teabagging hypocrite every single time.

Davos: The Bankers' Yearly Junket

So. Here we go yet again.

While working folks all over our country are experiencing losses of income not seen since the Great Depression, the world's bankers, financiers, Wall Street types, and others who don't work for their money but whose money works for them, are traveling to Davos, Switzerland. It's time for their annual convention of back-slapping and mutual admiration amidst the type of unbelievable five-star luxury that most of us in the real world can only dream of.

And since these well-paid clowns will invariably deduct everything from booze to hookers on their taxes as so-called "business expenses" it's also a taxpayer-subsidized junket.

Unlike the Great Depression, the Great Recession doesn't seem to have made any paupers out of millionaires.

The People's Republic Of California Strikes Again!

In our latest instance of Political Correctism run amok, we have the government of the People's Republic of California outlawing the dear old traditional 100 watt light bulb.

This needless new regulation has been brought to you by the same folks who also took it upon themselves to outlaw letting kids ride in the back of pick-up trucks but allows employers to require people to work on Christmas Day without paying them any extra wages whatsoever.

Oh yeah. Happy New Year from the Wonks.
