I was reading about that kid that killed both of his parents and then threw a house party, and I kept thinking about the sad irony of it in relation to the Casey Anthony story.
Here, yet another child kills his parents down there and this time he (allegedly) throws a party with a bunch of his friends while their bodies was sitting in a bedroom in the house. Sick. And most of you believe that Casey Anthony did the same thing to her child. So instead of the parent killing the child, it's the child killing the parents this time. Either way, it's all pretty f%$#!d up.
I see that that the wingnuts down in D.C. voted to push through a ridiculous-- dead on arrival-- deficit reduction bill, today. Nice. Cut federal spending by six trillion dollars? I don't think so.
"Let me be clear. This is the compromise. This is the best plan out there," said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, head of a conservative group inside the House known as the Republican Study Committee.
The legislation, dubbed "Cut, Cap and Balance" by supporters, would make an estimated $111 billion in immediate reductions and ensure that overall spending declined in the future in relation to the overall size of the economy.
It also would require both houses of Congress to approve a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution and send it to the states for ratification."
Let's hope that there are some grown ups in the senate and that they can find some type of compromise. Those wingnuts are...well, nuts!
Finally, I see that Michele Bachmann is blaming the black man for the problems surrounding the floods in the Midwest. ( I swear we get blamed for everything.) It's a smart political move. It should help to unify her base around a common theme: bigotry.
