From wizbang, regarding the bailout:
If the Treasury simply took the $700 Billion and started paying off taxpayer mortgages, they could pay off every mortgage in the country worth less than $75,000… Or put another way, $700 Billion could pay off well over half of all outstanding first mortgages in the entire country.

It’s almost unbelievable because it is unbelievable, Joe. Joe forgets to mention McCain’s (refundable) tax credit for health insurance. If your employer provides health insurance for you, that tax credit is tax cut for you. As someone who is self employed, I already pay income taxes on the money I’ve spent on health insurance. This would help me out, too.

I knew there was a reason why I voted for Bill Clinton (twice). These clips are all from the past week.

(Yum except for David Caruso(really?) and John McEnroe (you got to be kidding) and it is a little depressing that some of the guys in the clip are my age or younger)

Bitch did something nice for herself and bought a new keyboard and mouse. Very futuristic shit here. Both are wireless (I know, I’m slow to adapting to new technology). Loving them. Made by the very upscale sounding Kensington corporation. The keyboard is so fancy, I feel like I’m at the helm of the fucking Star Trek Enterprise while typing this blogging gold. Look at all my buttons!
I have no idea what any of them do but that’s not the point. I kinda miss the “clack, clack, clack” sound of my old keyboard but at least now I can stealth blog (teh kittehs are getting suspicious).
Why didn’t I do this sooner? No cord. No nasty roller ball that you have to clean out every few months so that it will work right. One thing I would’ve changed: the sides of the mouse have these rubbery ribs. Comfortable, for sure, but it is sure to be a dirt collector. (and don’t make fun of my mouse pad; Cammie’s Moments in Time is a fine floral establishment.)

One European country actually seems to think that cuts in the corporate tax rate and the income tax rate might actually be good for their economy. (FYI, Sweden’s corporate tax rate is already lower than the United States)
And because this shit is totally boring to most people, here are some chickens playing the piano:

I’m not a religious person but sometimes you have to wonder. Yesterday, during my bi-monthly trip to the dump, while throwing my shit on the pile, I looked down and saw this:
I’ve been going through a bit of a rough patch lately (nothing I can’t handle, bitches and sorry if I’ve been grumpy) so it really made my day. I stood there, in the pouring rain surrounded by mountains of garbage, smiled and picked it up (thank god I have hand sanitizer in the truck). It was wet and nasty but I couldn’t leave teh poor kitteh there in the mud. LEE must’ve got his shit together and didn’t need it anymore (or he was rudely evicted from his mobile home).
