“Occupy” In A Nutshell

Contest’s over, we have a winner. Lefty wants free stuff.

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

Bend Over And Assume The Position

Deal announced on stimulus; weekend vote likely

“The American people want us to work together. They don’t want to see us dividing along partisan lines on the most serious crisis confronting our country,” said Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, one of three Republican moderates who broke ranks and pledged their votes for the bill.

Democratic leaders expressed confidence that the concessions they had made to Republicans and moderate Democrats to trim the measure had cleared the way for its passage. No final vote was expected before Saturday or Sunday.

. . .

In addition to Collins, Republican Sens. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Olympia Snowe of Maine pledged to vote for the legislation.

That’s three, count ’em three, Republicans in the entire Congress who will be voting for this racing down the road to socialism travesty. And they’re barely Republicans at that. Bipartisan my ass. Whatever happens now, the Democrats own this mortgage on our long term future, paid for with imaginary money we don’t even have to begin with.
