Quote of the Day:

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."

Deem This, You Crocodilian* Wench!

I saw someone anonymously comment on another blog a bunch of stuff, but I found this quip to be quite genius.

           "   ...Perhaps I'm confused here, but if they want to toss the rule book out the window, then they have no basis to turn to me and say, "Play by the rules.""


Madam Speaker, I deem you, and your crocodilian* cohorts, completely irrelevant henceforth.

*please note, this in no way references crazy talk about 'reptilians' or any other such nonsense of that particular scifi/conspiracy genre. I refer to her as a crocodile because, well, she looks a lot like a primal lizard, and I have no doubt she sounds and acts like one behind closed doors. Much like Stacy Keech's character in one Cheech and Chong movie, sans the mary jane. Furthermore, I will surmise that you probably can't read this, but if it so happens that you can, please feel free to do some photoshopping of Pelosi and send it to youtube marked "Reptilian Conspiracy Exposed!" or something of that nature. That stuff is hilarious!

Defining Poverty

Defining Poverty: New tools to help us become... .... tools.

The Obama administration is setting new standards for determining who is "poor" in America, announcing a new formula to supplement the one established during the 1960s.  Why the change?  Because Obama's definition of poverty seeks to include "modern" expenses like child care and health care.

Go here for more.  Also, and more to the point, here.


The Supplemental Poverty Measure, which will be used in fall 2010 in a Census Bureau report, will not completely replace the old measure. It will be used to calculate an alternative poverty rate, but the new formula will not be used to determine eligibility for government programs.

Emphasis added, of course.

Wait... Alternative? Alternative to what, exactly?

So, riddle me this, Batman. Since it won't be used to further government welfare, what will it be used for? Toilet paper? (Maybe for me, but...)


I surmise this will be used as a propaganda ploy by the POTUS to show why we need UniversalSuckCare now, more than ever, because so many people are impoverished!!

Balderdash, is what it is.

Deja Moo - The feeling that you've heard this bull before.
