Proving once again two Bushes are worse than one I present Disneyworld as government:
Gunfights at the Ocala Corral are now legal in the state of Florida. With less intelligence than is normally accorded to oysters, the legislature has decided that you are no longer required to avoid conflicts in public places, but may gun down people you feel are threatening. Of course, the law is unclear who innocent bystanders get to sue when they are injured [estates, if said bystanders are killed]; but rest assured that the beginning golfers will no longer be allowed to slow you down on the course, and cutting in line will be a thing of the past, after a few shoot outs at country clubs and supermarkets. It will add a whole new dimension to "clean up on aisle twelve".
Proving that he is no more competent as a junior Senator, than as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development [where did all the money go?], Mel Martinez admitted that the memo that indicated that Republicans could score major points for interfering in a private matter in the state of Florida was written by his legal counsel, Brian Darling.
Martinez wants you to accept that he never actually saw the memo that he accidentally handed to Senator Harkin on the Senate floor. Yeah, right. You are writing a bill of attainder, your first piece of significant legislation as a Senator in a highly charged case, and you didn't read a memo from your legal counsel.
Well, you can see why Mel was handpicked by Dubya to run for Senator, and endorsed by Rudy Guiliani. I guess citrus canker doesn't just affect plants.
The links are around [see Bobby at Bark Bark Woof Woof
for links], but I've been doing some cleanup including trying to convince momma cats that they should not move their kittens under cars after an all night thunderstorm session with 5.94 inches of rain, hail, and fog. There will be flooding in the northern part of the county by the rivers, but we dry out quickly down here.
I tried posting this at 3:30pm [and 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 7:00pm, 8:00pm, 9:00pm] but Blogger died. Oh, well, you get what you pay for.
I checked Status and Blogger did another bloody update to improve responsiveness, apparently by accidentally blocking out a group of blogs, including mine.
They are scheduling an outage tomorrow around Noon Pacific.
