So these banking jokers don’t operate in a vacuum after all, and although we would like to see them pay for their crimes, we see that from a pragmatic view this is more of a tar pit—the size and dimensions of which are not known.

I wonder why we let them take out the legislation that made these financial escapades illegal? I wonder how that happened? It was Phil Gramm that championed the legislation, and he’s a good conservative man and a strong Christian. Why would he think this was a good idea? Who convinced him that the banking industry was better suited to monitor their own activities? Was it a financial lobby playing to his pride and blind idealism? Wonder if there is a lesson to be learned, or if we just need to stay on course and keep demonizing the progressives who also voted for this sh!t sandwhich?

Why don't you want to go west of the Rockies? There's all kinds of beautiful country, west of the Rockies, that's not California, Little California (western Oregon) or Far North California (western Washington).
I'm sorry I meant East of the Rockies. My hobbies would not support me, hunting and wheeling. I'm not very good at either.

I'm sick of being cold.

skeeter Yep.
Just a budget dispute between the liberal governor and conservative legislature.
The democrat gov wants to borrow money to keep throwing it away and the republican legislature wants her to cut spending.

It's the whole country, boys, we're in it together.

For Kansas it was waiting on a bill for the Governor to sign. She Signed it a couple hours ago.

Kansas and its state works will now get there money. Or so they just said on the local Wichita KS new.

Income tax refunds and state employee paychecks could be late after Republican leaders and the Democratic governor clashed Monday over how to solve a cash-flow problem.

Payments to Medicaid providers and schools also could be delayed.

"We are out of cash, in essence," state budget director Duane Goossen said.

Cali down the tubes?

This won't be very good. I am currently looking for a job and more competition is coming.
