The TV show “24” is pretty much on life support nowadays. Is it just me or are the true villains lately the white guys manipulating the poor terrorists? And speaking of lame, the villains in police dramas always seem to be rich white guys who are full of greed and lust.

The other day I saw a nice quote about Wall Street, “Bulls can make money, Bears can make money, it is the hogs that mess it up for everybody.”

Congressman Tom Perriello (D-VA) recently said, “The only way to get Congress to balance the budget is to give them no choice…whether it’s balanced budget acts or pay-as-you-go legislation. If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing. Part of what has happened with Social Security and Medicare is that when they were set up, life expectancy was such that people would be on it for 2 or 3 years, not 15 or 20 years.”

The New York Times is reporting that when Judge María Lourdes Afiuni issued a ruling in December that irked President Hugo Chávez, he did little to contain his outrage. The president, contending on national television that she would have been put before a firing squad in earlier times, sent his secret intelligence police to arrest her. Then the agents took her to the overcrowded women’s prison in this city of slums near Caracas. They put her in a cell near more than 20 inmates whom Judge Afiuni had sentenced on charges like murder and drug smuggling.

Ever notice how people too sophisticated to believe in Jesus have no trouble believing in Gaia or Xenu? Or Global Warming? And Wicca…and astrology…and ghosts…and socialism…and Obama.
