    Blame is the name of the game these days.

    It's always the other guy's fault.

    There's an old joke among coppers. It's a scenario for an advanced promotion and the scenario starts out, "you're on supervisory patrol..." and then goes on with this huge litany of disaster after disaster after disaster until it gets to the concluding question: "What is you response?"

    The best answer? "Take off uniform and mingle with crowd".

    I think some of your congressfolks are taking off their uniforms and mingling with the crowd.

    Let me guess. You must have been watching the "congressional hearings". I couldn't believe the arrogant little twit that said, " It was MEANT as offense".
    The twit is Richard E. Neal D of Massachusettes. 202-225-5601. What do you want to bet that folks call him Dick?


    His office will hear from me tomorrow. :) Dick might even be the nicest thing I call him too.

    LOL!!!! I guess we are talking about AIG here without mentioning the name. The assholes that were getting the bonuses were the very same people that created this situation. Millions of dollars for screwing the American public and a great many among the millions of unemployed that they helped create are losing their homes. But that matters not at all. These people have contracts. But abrogating union contracts is a good thing. Hell, I think that we should put that 90% tax on any that take that money. And do an in depth investigation of all that they have done in the market in the last five years.

    It's right and good to sort out the mess (I'm generalising). But it's not right and good to have legislators - of any political persuasion - acting like a lynch mob. We, the great unwashed, are entitled to behave like that but we expect our legislators to lead and not to go and get the rope and ladders.
