A Quick Monday Survey

Been doing your federal income tax return? Or looking forward to the prospect? Check this out. At least you'll know you've been supporting fresh air, fun, and physical fitness in Mesopotamia.

Don't they know they're just providing aid and comfort to the enemy with this kind of talk? Don't they know there's a war on?

Paul Craig Roberts notes that things are going ill for Global Emperor El Supremo Jorge Bush the Younger. And well does he deserve it. It's just a pity that such glorious leaders of folk are so generous about sharing their fortune with large fractions of the world. Not that we don't deserve it, of course ... Chimpy would hardly be where and what he is today without lots and lots of help. In the words of Joseph "Culture" Hill: "Where the tree falls / There shall it lie until judgement takes its course."

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Truman had terrible poll numbers when he left office and is now very respected.
