Day By Day reveals Sam's Valentine's Day gift to Zed. Wonder how Mary would look carrying one of these?

OK, I've settled down now. Where was I?

Newsbusters has this in their weekly captionfest. The actual caption as reported is interesting. Isn't Taco Bell responsible for "global warming"?

Virginia Postrel is running a contest to give away tickets to the premiere of Ghost Rider. I thought the poster was interesting, in that Nicholas Cage's name is superimposed on Eva Mendez's picture and vice versa. That could be confusing. Anyway, if you're interested, check out the link.

Rhymes With Right explains the recent profit report from Exxon-Mobil (there's more that I could have said, but spared you) and comments on "stroke of the pen, law of the land" legislation in Texas.

Don Surber points out "We spend more on Medicare and Medicaid than we do defending the nation. Forget Hillarycare. Our budget is being busted by these twins of LBJ."

Cinnamon Stillwell tells us, " Want to Know What's Really Going on in Afghanistan? Listen to the Military, Not the Media".

Have a good Saturday!

Hillary has already forged ahead in the demagogery race by suggesting that those ghastly profits be taxed away from Exxon. I would really like to hear some details of the theory wherein government decides what profits are "too high". And if some year they are "too low" - what then? And do you measure profits as return on equity, return on sales, or just the absolute cash total?

I'll bet you she'd be very surprised to learn that she has money invested in Exxon-Mobil. In fact, I'll bet that there are a lot of people who would be shocked to learn that their pensions were invested in the evil oil and pharmaceutical companies. Imagine how horrified senior citizens would be to learn that the huge drug companies that are forcing them to eat dog food in order to pay for their prescription drugs are sharing in the very profits of said drug companies through their pensions. Or how shocked Al Franken would be if he knew that the money he had invested "as conservatively as a high school principal" (as he once claimed on C-SPAN) was banking on the filthy lucre of evil capitalist businessmen.

Hillary has conveniently forgotten that 85,000 people, including many of her own constituents, work for Exxon-Mobil, and that it pours $21 billion dollars worth of its hard-earned money into federal, state and local coffers. Also conveniently forgotten are the millions of dollars XOM pays to abide by regulations written by herself and other smart-ass lawyers who want to write the rules for a game that they barely understand and that they wouldn't dirty themselves playing....

But, I know I'm singing to the choir here. The people this post is really aimed at won't even bother to read it.

I just want to say that that is one beautiful gun. My husband just got me a .38 to make up for his new 9mm. I think I would have made out better if I'd let him get the M-16 he wanted, but I just kept picturing him in his skivvies going all "Full Metal Jacket."

Revolver or semi-automatic?

Why don't you buy the M-16 for yourself, and let him use it?

Mine's a revolver, his is just like his 9mm he used in the Marines. To be fair, I did also get some bolt-action rifle that I haven't even really looked at yet.
