Mr. Delay... 

CNN.com - Congress-passed budget plan targets Medicaid - Apr 29, 2005

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, said it's time to look closely at benefit programs that are "popular but rife with waste."

"These entitlement programs deserve reform," he said. "The Medicaid system is antiquated and the quality of care is not being brought to the people that need it."

Shut the fuck up Tom. Seriously. Breaking a government program does not qualify as reform. And your notion of 'entitlement' is laughable. Medicaid, student loans, social security and food stamps are entitlement programs, but giving tax breaks to energy companies that have posted record profits this past year is a sound energy policy??

If there was an IQ requirment for elected office, we never would have heard the name of Tom Delay (or goerge bush for that matter).

A walk down memory lane 

washingtonpost.com – White House Briefing – News on President George W Bush and the Bush Administration

I'm not really commenting on the story itself really, just an odd line taken from a debate at a christian college that georgie will be speaking at, one that happens to be the site of one of the republican presidential debates from 2000.

"There's a fundamental difference here," McCain said. "I believe we must save Social Security, we must pay down the debt, we have to make investment in Medicare. For us to put all of the tax cuts -- all of the surplus into tax cuts, I think, is not a conservative effort. I think it's a mistake. I think we should put that money into allowing Americans to be sure that their Social Security system will be there when they retire."

Bush shot back: "I have a plan that takes $2 trillion over the next 10 years and dedicates it to Social Security. My plan has been called risky by voices out of Washington. In my judgment, what's risky is to leave a lot of unspent money in Washington, because guess what's going to happen: It's going to be spent on bigger federal governments."

You've come a long way george. I think you've proven that just about anything you do could be called 'risky', be it your domestic agenda or in terms of foriegn policy. I think all of America's problems are really the result of a spoiled child with attention deficit disorder who happens to hold the office of the president, and thats being kind.

A picture is worth a thousand words really.

Was that so hard? 

U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Votes >To prohibit the use of funds by any Federal agency to produce a prepackaged news story without including in such story a clear notification for the audience that the story was prepared or funded by a Federal agency.

There. That wasn't difficult now was it? Not quite as good as an investigation, but it'll due for now i suppose.

Sit Boo-Boo, sit. Good boy.

Scientific Methods 

EPA Scraps Controversial Pesticide Testing Program

The Children's Environmental Exposure Research Study would have paid families $970 to videotape how spraying insecticides in their homes affected infants over two years.


Um... I don't really know what to say. Pesticide is poison... Do we really need to verify the fact that poison is dangerous to infants?

"Information from the study was intended to help EPA better protect children," Johnson said on Friday. "EPA will continue to pursue the goal of protecting childrens' health."

Keep your eyes open folks, next time they might study the effects of a 9mm bullet on school children.

Maybe i shouldn't blame these folks for relying so heavily on religion, because they are clearly so poor at science.
