Weds/Thurs Open Thread

Posted by: ST on October 14, 2009 at 10:10 pm

Hey y’all – I know all day Thursday is going to be hectic for me as I get back into the work groove. I will check in at some point when I can, but most blogging will probably be night time blogging.

Catch ya later.

    Happy back to work – a good sign and happy catching up with errands and other dire duties of life. Like being here on the thread.

    My comment has to do with what Olympia Snowe has been called “last of a dying species of moderate Republicans” Oh gag me with a spoon!

    I got mad and got even and wrote about it:

    Where are Republican Moderates? Have They Joined Moderate Democrats as Independents? at

    Should we have Olympia Snowe bronzed for what she has done or tarred,feathered and ridden out of town on a rail? She has no idea that the compromise she helped to craft wil be used to again open the door to payor insurance. She thinks this is the same old Congress. OK so we don’t know what she thinks but we know what she did.

    First they put serial numbers on gems. Then they proposed it for weaponry. Now perhaps the ultimate – Breakfast Labelling

    The first direct stimulus reports showed that stimulus contracts saved or created just 30,083 jobs, prompting more Republican criticism of the $787 billion package.

  4. steveegg says:

    Neo, that would be $531,687 per job.

    The teasers [for “V”] running on ABC offer a hint of this. “They gave us hope. We gave them our trust.” Who does that bring to mind? Of course, the Visitors (hence the title), after promising things like universal health care and peace in a one world government, turn out to be totally evil. They attempt to seize control of the media, favoring those who don’t challenge them or ask probing questions about their real agenda, which turns out to be the annihilation of humanity. The heroes are everyday people, who form a grass roots resistance movement.

    Maybe they should have renamed it to … “O”
