An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 27 December 2010
Evidently, I’m having a Monday. I’ve read through a number of papers, and there isn’t one thing that catches my interest. I mean nothing!
The weather on the east coast sucks. Well, it’s winter! The weather is suppose to suck!
Obama went to church. Yeah? So what? This is news? I went to church too, as did millions of others, but I didn’t see that as a headline.
Muslims are killing, and threatening to kill anyone and everyone. Oh, there’s some news.
And the list goes on and on. The only GOOD news….111th has gone home! Thank you Lord! They can’t do anymore damage, but unfortunately, the damage they have done may be extremely long lasting, unless, of course, the 112th can work hard to rectify this? One can only hope!
So, you see….giving a damn is getting rough. Who knows, maybe just because it’s Monday? If so, I sure have been having a lot of ‘em lately.
Big Government Strikes Back
The 111th Congress, the most unpopular Congress in the recorded history if the United States, ended last week with a flurry of legislative activity that set a record for a lame duck Congress. Some in the media are eager to make the case that last week’s events portend a new era of bipartisan accomplishment, led by the White House, that will extend into the 112th Congress. They are half right.
Last week’s events in Washington were a preview of lawmaking in 2011, but Congress was not where the real action was. While the media was distracted by the last breaths of a defeated leftist majority in Congress, it was the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that gave true picture of how the Obama Administration will advance their agenda in 2011.
