The DC Folly Trolley

Congress is holding a buy one, get one half off sale this week.  That’s right.  Buy one vote at full price; get half off the second vote.  Better hurry.  Sale ends Saturday.

Marriage is the union between a man and woman who have just entered into the first stage of divorce.

I voted against the marriage ban in NC.  Why should gays be any better off than the rest of us?

The real losers of the ban vote were the divorce lawyers.  Gay marriage would be a cash cow for them.

Most of Perdue’s problems resulted from having to deal with a Republican legislature – one which overrode several of her vetoes.  For the first time in a hundred years both houses of the legislatures were GOP dominated.  Of course, the Republicans needed the votes of five backstabbing Democrats to override.

The vote for the ban on gay marriage in NC was so lopsided I think only divorce lawyers voted against.  And me.

I wonder how many divorced people in NC voted to preserve the sanctity of the institution by banning gay marriage.  Probably a slew.

NC is filled with hypocrites who vote social issues while ignoring the economics of politics even if it harms themselves, their children and their grandchildren.  Go figure.

Prediction:  The state returns to the Republican column after Romney proposes an amendment to the Federal Constitution to ban gay marriage .  The amendment will fail of course, but the hypocrites will salivate with uncontrollable joy.  Holy rollers, Batman.

Ann Romney buys $990.00 silk tee shirts.  When she’s tired of one she takes it to the Salvation Army Store and gets a receipt she can use as a $980.00 tax deduction.  All is not as it first appears.

Here’s a phrase from the Bible that Wall Street lives by:  Strike first the other’s cheek; and when he turns strike again.  Can’t seem to find the chapter and verse it comes from though.

Walmart has been accused of bribery in Mexico.  I find that hard to believe.  In America, that’s called politics.

On a recent vacation the Romney family packed the SUV so full of $990.00 tee shirts and other stuff, there was no room for the dog – or for Mitt.  So they were both tied to the roof of the car.  Since there was only room enough in the kennel for the dog, they tied Dad directly to the car.  Not to worry though.  They gave Mitt a blanket and lots of sunscreen.

When they arrived at their destination, however, Mitt was so pissed off he began smashing TV cameras.  Apparently, riding on the roof of the car messed up his coif.

Palm greasing in the nation’s capital has replaced baseball as the national pastime.

At least the Washington Nationals play by the rules.

As for everybody else in Follyland, there are no rules.

Killing bin Laden was an important day in Barack Obama’s presidency.  Can you think of another one?

Despite his successes, Obama’s failures seem to be rising to the surface.  Three missteps in particular are standouts:  His failure to pursue adequate stimulus, the abandonment of the  public option and settling for weak financial reform.

Actress Susan Sarandon, a political activist, believes her phone has been tapped by the government.

An Oscar winning actress and a fine looking woman, Susan Sarandon.

You might want to check the shower head for cameras.  UPW News reports some members of the Department of Homeland Security believe that numerous anti-government plots have been hatched by naked women showering.

The sad thing about the Walmart bribery case is that the Mexicans would have taken half; and Walmart would have paid double.

Mitt Romney – the uncaped crusader – is taking credit for the success of the auto bailout.  If you think he said what he said he said, that’s not what he said.  He said what he said was the car companies should declare bankruptcy.  And he said that’s exactly what they did and that’s what he said they should do.   What he said, however, left out an important element of what actually occurred; and that is government loans to the tune of billions of dollars were given to the credit starved companies and that is what saved the now profitable US auto industry.

What Romney said and what he said he said were actually two different things, if you can believe Romney would actually do such a thing.  What you think he said is not what he said, he said.  He’s not really sure what he said, but if I think he said what he said I think he said the free market should run its course and the industry should be left to swing in the wind.

But that’s been the basis of the Uncaped Crusader’s whole campaign.  Learn what his base really believes and then join in the chorus; read the morning newspaper and if there’s some good news, make a speech and take credit for it.

Want the naked truth about Romney:  This emperor truly has no clothes (with the possible exception of $990.00 tee shirts).

Some gazillionaire wants Obama to make a speech about how really, really nice rich people are.  And why not?  Even a tyrannosaur needs a little loving once in a while.

JPMorgan Chase just blew another couple billion dollars on some really shitty investments.  But that could be the tip of the iceberg – or should I say the shit pile.  Billions more could be buried deep in that pile.

Oh well.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  Besides, Jamie Dimon, the CEO, is real good friends with Barack Obama.  A chit chat with the pres should rake in enough taxpayer dollars to cover any JP shortfall.

JPMorgan Chase, you see, is too big to fail.  It’s still not too big to fuck up, however.

After Pennsylvania residents who live near a fracking zone complained of contaminated water, EPA tests declared the water safe for human consumption.  An EPA spokesman encouraged residents to follow the agency’s guideline:  If you light a match under the kitchen faucet and the water catches fire don’t drink it.
