The Senate passed a resolution Thursday night that calls on the newspaper Village Voice “to act as a responsible global citizen” by taking down its “adult entertainment” section of its classified advertising website.
Glad they’re finally concentrating on the important stuff.

The question is – is this country ready for self-government? Or will it take a few more generations?

A railroad that nobody wants, or will use.
A railroad that costs 100 times more than is budgeted for.
A railroad from nowhere to nowhere.
A railroad in a State that is Brazillions of dollars in debt.
A railroad that must also serve as a jobs program.
A railroad that must be built by felons, cripples, homeless and nonschooled.
A railroad that no company has offerred a bid to build.
A railroad that is slower than driving a car.
A railroad that is waaay slower than a commerical flight.
A railroad that requires special tracks that no one makes.
A railroad that the govt agency`s head has quit.
A railroad that exists in the mind of a psychotic leader of a psychotic legislature.
A railroad that exists due to psychotic voters electing psychotic leaders and psychotic legislatures in a psychotic State that psychotically believes that they, alone, can save the entire world from Global Warming.
A railroad that in no way can ever cure psychosis.
A railroad that some day may be listed in medical books as a form of psychosis.

I await the radical left who will want to stand on one part of the First Amendment while disregarding the rest of the Bill of Rights and the entire Constitution.
I, too, have become a progressophobe.
How long before the DalaiBama considers conservatism a mental disease and a disqualification for exercising your Second Amendment rights?
The reason I pose the question is because that is exactly the course of action by Communist dictators.

A “jobs program” is proof that if you explain an economic fallacy to a bureaucrat, they will try to impose it on everyone they can.
Okay, lessee …
The US Senate now is trying to run the world by defining what a good global citizen is. Well, it’s either that or vote on a budget. Have these birks even read their job description?
(What? Well, screw ‘em. They elected Reid.)
Otters can swim and can’t read to “Otter-Free Zone” signs.
Are they gonna fine or shoot otters that occupy the zones?
However, in their defense, sea-urchin roe is tasty raw, if a tad hazardous to get (ref: my SCUBA days on the central CA coast), so there’s that.
The railroad will be built by people qualified only to lean on a shovel.
Aaaand they haven’t even run into Sheriff Bart, yet.

I think they’ll build the train, put it in service, find it cost it cost 18 billion, nobody rides it, it hits a three toed, frog sniffer, which was thought extinct, the train isn’t allowed to run any longer and they put it in Disneyland, so people can sit in the seats and watch a 3D movie.
Meanwhile, the illegal alien coalition wins the California Senate and they pass a law making all Anglos provide a photo I.D. to vote.
I’ve read this plot before: Atlas Shrugged.

Personally, I like otters, and….. Big surprise, Wolves. Beautiful creatures. The action, although they swam all over the place, seems to have worked, bringing their population up to about 2800, from less than 20.
And, before you take me to task, remember, I am Disadvantaged!
Ain’t working on no damn railroad in the middle of nowhere, though.

Should just give the politicians a new Lionel Train set. Sure, they went bankrupt in 1986 but are back with new suppliers. Its no wonder the O-gauge line is the best selling.

The world did in fact end – wink out of existence – at midnight at the end of 12/21. However, realizing that this was extremely inconvenient to several billion people, it was instantly recreated, in exactly the same condition as it was before.
About that Resolution: it’s real comforting to know that the Senate has all the the really important stuff handled.
About that California thing: it’s official: we’re being governed by board-certified madmen.
One time, when we were growing up in the orphanage, we managed to come into possesion of a #2 key. How, I can’t remember, but we were some sneaky little bastards.
A #2 key would work on any lock in the whole place, including the hidden basements. There, in one of the buildings, we found an intricate train set that had obviously been donated years ago, but never used. It was like 8′ X 8′ square. It had towns and trees, and switches and stations coming out of its ass. Yeehaw.
So we played with it for a while, and then I ripped-out some of the relays and switches and servos and used them for my rocket-building experiments. I can now, singlehandedly, pw0n North Korea. Come to Poppa.
