I’ll swear that you are the Queen of England for that much money! I’ll carry Al Gore around on my back for a year for half that amount! I’ll give up my scientific mindset and sell myself as a whore for a quarter of that amount! But that is the amount of money that the government has spent on policies related to climate change.

We win, taxpayers lose. Sorry suckas
UAW runs another company into bankruptcy with shitty work and exhorbitant benefits. U.S. Taxpayers to be saddled with paying those fat-asses’ exhorbitant retirement benefits. And many of them are in their 50s and took early retirement. While you and I slave away with no retirement plan except our own savings, The Obambi Administration pays off more debt to his supporters. With your and my money.
From The Detroit News: “It’s huge, especially up in my district where a lot of retirees live,” Stupak said. “You can see what the corporations are doing: declaring bankruptcy, going to court and dumping it on the taxpayers, which I think is really immoral. Corporations used to take care of their workers; now they don’t anymore.”
From The NY Times: “Delphi filed for bankruptcy in 2005 under the leadership of Robert S. Miller, who said one of his highest priorities would be to curb the company’s “uncompetitive labor cost structure.”
[Note to dumbasses: “uncompetitive labor cost structure” is a polite way of saying those union workers were paid more than they were worth, and the company was losing business to overseas or non-unionized businesses. Now those American businesses which were competetive will have to pay taxes to bail these bastards out. And that’s a fact, Jack.]
You talkin to me? Are YOU talkin to ME?!
One of my next door neighbors (originally from India) yesterday asked me to look out for his house while he is expected to be gone for vacation. He said words to the effect that if I see anybody there during the next X days to call the police.
Now, if I came home from vacation and lost my key and tried to break in to my own home, I would gladly accept the fact that if someone saw me doing it that they would call the police to report suspicious activity. If the police came to my door, I would not be “offended.” I would thank them, and calmly explain that I lost my key, broke into my own home, and willingly show them my ID. Hell, I’d offer them a cup of coffee.
What I would not do is start screaming racism. Course, I don’t have a chip on my shoulder, and I don’t think I’m an elitist from Harvard who is above being polite to the police. I’m glad that black SOB got arrested. About 99% of cops (I would venture to guess) would have arrested his ass, be they white, black or green. I also think the prosecutor was correct to dismiss the charges. I’m only sorry that he will be emboldened by the affair, and think even more highly of himself. He is the racist, not to mention a stupid P.O.S. He violated one of John Doe’s maxims: “Don’t piss off any guy who is packing heat.” And Obama, what a moron. Stay the hell out of it you ignorant thug.
