I can’t believe I just got a “Breaking News” email alert from CNN telling me that this is Simon Cowell’s last season on American Idol. So that’s breaking news, huh?
Arrgh Paine has an excellent post on his blog My Take, thanks to Bob Cesca for catching it. It talks about the split in the left that is pitting those who are pragmatic, realistic and wisely using the power that the democrats have – to try to get some changes in our country against the “pure” left who have unrealistic fantasies of what democrats can do in their current power structure. Here is a piece of his excellent concise post.
On one hand we have those who have been justifiably disappointed with the administration on a number of issues in what they thought would be a very progressive agenda. On the other hand we have a group that is justifiably upset at progressives who attack the administration in what they see as a scorched earth policy that will harm the agenda moving forward.
Both groups are correct and the intent of this post is not to convince anyone to abandon their belief or the passionate defense of that belief. The point of this post is to sow understanding. We need to debate the facts in good faith, not the fantasy we want to make those facts mean.
Personally, I look to motives of the people who spew the most venom towards the president. I wonder where that anger and irrational hatred comes from, the kind normally reserved for republicans.
It sure is nice to have a democratic president and congress, I just have to say. They are working on a jobs bill that will actually create real jobs for people. I can only imagine what the republic party would offer up if they were in charge, tax cuts for the wealthiest I’m sure. From The Hill
Senate Democrats are crafting a job creation bill that would boost funding for small businesses, public services, infrastructure projects and energy efficiency programs.
An aide to Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Democrats are looking at proposals in those four main areas. But the aide said that senators have yet to finalize their specific proposals…
…They are considering new transit and highway spending and efforts to help stave off public employee layoffs, as well as a new tax credit for businesses hiring new workers and a program providing incentives for homeowners to retrofit their homes, according to a source off Capitol Hill.
Watch the republicans scream that there aren’t any tax cuts in it, although there are. But when they are targeted tax credits, they can’t end up in some CEO’s bonus.

I was listening to a podcast of Bill Maher’s Real Time the other day on the way to work and whenever the audience applauded, some idiot(s) would whistle in one of those loud, piercing whistles that penetrates your skull. STOP THIS People! It sucks ass. It happens at concerts, political speeches….all different sorts of events. What the hell are these people doing it for, do they just want to be noticed?

We’ll see how this blog thing goes, I love the idea of having an outlet for my thoughts and to share interesting and funny things I come across. Here’s to a great year. Peace!
