– Paul Ryan

Letter signed by Paul Ryan asking for stimulus money.

To see the full scope of this hypocrisy, here’s some video goodness.

From one of the few true Republicans that ever walked this Earth.

No man should receive a dollar unless that dollar has been fairly earned. Every dollar received should represent a dollar’s worth of service rendered – not gambling in stocks, but service rendered. The really big fortune, the swollen fortune, by the mere fact of its size acquires qualities which differentiate it in kind as well as in degree from what is possessed by men of relatively small means. Therefore, I believe in a graduated income tax on big fortunes, and in another tax which is far more easily collected and far more effective – a graduated inheritance tax on big fortunes, properly safeguarded against evasion and increasing rapidly in amount with the size of the estate.
– Theodore Roosevelt, speech at Osawatomie, Kansas, “The New Nationalism” (August 31, 1910)

And one more…

“We are not attacking the corporations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them.  We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good.  We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.”

– Theodore Roosevelt

 “I am also saddened that the Republican party of today thinks I wanted God in the White House and to rule the nation. That is not true at all, after I was nearly assassinated I wanted God more in my own personal life. I acknowledged that I was to be here for a reason and serve him and my nation together, but they always stayed separate in my mind just as in the Constitution. The Republican party today merely just uses God as a means to get votes, and I don’t believe Jesus would want to be used as a marketing tool. I regret my decision to become Republican and if I had to do it all over again I would have remained in the Democratic party and ran on their ticket. They seem to instill the core values I believe in, such as a collective philosophy. ”

– Ronald Reagan

“Afghanistan is easy to march into but hard to march out of.”

– Alexander the Great

One of these days, who knows… this country might actually get its shit together and start learning from history.

Lt. Col. Davis should not only be recognized for his bravery in combat, but also for his bravery in re-exposing the utter bullshit fed to the American public by both the government and the Pentagon.  The really sad thing is that Davis’ life is about to become as difficult state-side as his counterparts who are in combat because of the backlash he will no doubt suffer at the hands of those who started this war in the first place. And no, I’m not talking about terrorists.

Quote of the Day – Bourdain on Politicians

“A miserable, hypocritical prick–whatever the system of government–is still a prick.  I tend to look at the world, still, from the point of view of a restaurant guy–a small business owner.  Right? Left? I don’t care. I look at “leaders” as if they were managers of my restaurant. I go away for four years and come back. If my business has gotten inexplicably worse, I have fewer customers, the neighbors are pissed, my employees unhappy and there’s money inexplicably missing from the till, I call that a bad leader.  I don’t know if that’s politics or simple good sense.”

Anthony Bourdain

As profound as this quote is, the rest of the blog post is worth reading as well.
