Oh, no. Not again. I need to wear a safety helmet to cover the Republican incompetents trying to muster up a response to the Obama Generational Theft Act of 2009.
Mitch McConnell, if you are not going to be able to stop this disaster, please just shut up. Reader Mitch F. e-mails that McConnell’s just given us another head-banging moment (the first one from this week is here):
Mitch McConnell was just on Fox already indicating that all but 2 states are going to get bailed out by the feds. But don’t worry, the money will be spent “judiciously” according to McConnell, as it has with the other stimulus plans the feds have implemented so far. He actually said that.
This crap has gone so far now that it really doesn’t matter anymore. I’m going to take care of my family, business, friends, and community as best I can from now on and I really don’t even care about anything these politicians say anymore. They’re now completely irrelevant from my point of view.
You know what would almost overnight put this country back on the right track? If even a small but healthy percentage of small business owners such as myself banded together and told the local, state, and federal governments that we are no longer going to play tax collector for them, pay their fees, permits, etc., we could bring them to their knees and force “real” change in this society. It might get to that sooner than later here in California anyway. There’s already talk around business organizations and associations to send IOU’s to Sacramento since they seem to think those are ok. I’m seriously considering paying my employees directly and refusing to collect payroll taxes to see what happens. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up in the news and it will start some momentum. They can’t put us all in the pokey, especially since those are also broke and have no room left!!!
Make him stop.

Update: Allah’s got the vid of McConnell hedging his bets here. Needs a viewing-this-could-be-hazardous-to-your health advisory slapped at the beginning.
Update: From Erick Erickson, 12 more Mitch McConnell head-banging moments.
