Ruminations Of the Easily Amused for March 21 2009

21 March 2009 at 8:39:20 AM

Octomom from Fark

One of the side effects of getting rid of Dish is that I didn't think I would be able to watch The Tudors. NOT SO!!! Woo-hoo! Season 3 Episode 1 is HERE!

So... Bush wanted people to be able to pack heat in national parks. Federal court ruling said, Nope, you can't. NRA appealing the ruling. People don't need to be carrying concealed hanguns in a national park.

How bizarre is it for Hillary Clinton fans to be for.... trashy Sarah Palin.. via Millard Filmore.  And Andrew Sullivan calls her out on her special ed hypocrisy.

Israeli excesses in Gaza-Juan Cole.

Sallie Mae loan changes on student loans

Supervisors in NY approve *generic prayer* at county meetings.

Taylor cited federal court cases that set a precedent if a group decides to sue the county over the practice, saying decisions in those cases “stand hard against prayer…that invokes a particular brand, if you will, down to or including Christ.”

Such a lawsuit could cost Accomack County “north of a quarter of a million dollars,” Taylor said, adding, “That’s the cost of that principle.”

Change at the White House

I don't often agree with ADF's lawsuits, but the ones they do on behalf of free speech in open areas are right. NY court finds town's requirement for a permit for free speech at an outdoor public park concert to be unconsitutional. Now, the woman was arrested for sharing her faith and distributing literature-this would apply as well to others who wanted, for other free speech reasons, to share their opinions at public events.

Roots of the financial crisis-Not Obama Nor Geitner.  On the other hand, Obama got a lot of moolah from AIG.

with banks collapsing, why would you push the one you had put so much money in to collapse?

Answer: because you had your boys on the inside in Washington, that's why. And your boys got a bail-out package for AIG which actually paid you more than your claims that broke the bank. What investors had demanded from AIG was collateral on debts. But they actually got with the bailout was the whole damn amount, 100 cents on the dollar.

To put it even more bluntly: if AIG had managed to not collapse and not require $180 billion in taxpayer money, Goldman Sachs would be sitting today with some very very shaky investments. But since AIG collapsed, the folks at Goldman cleaned up.

Or even more bluntly: Goldman used AIG as a funnel.

That's a nice trick. Its like two guys rolling someone on the street when the first guy comes up on the right and throws a punch after which the guy on the left quietly lifts the mark's wallet. Of course you run the risk that the cops might see you. Then again, if you have the cops in your pocket...

Remember how there was *work that Americans Won't Do*? Meme dead.
