This Should Anger You

You should read this article about Bush's proposed budget from the Rolling Stone, by Matt Taibbi.

I really started to get angry about a quarter of the way through. Let's see how far you get!

This part got me, especially:

If the Estate Tax were to be repealed completely, the estimated savings to just one family, the Walton family, the heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune -- would be about $32.7 billion dollars over the next ten years.
The proposed reductions to Medicaid over the same time frame? $28 billion.


Oh dear ...

I knew this was going to happen.

The Monkey-Robots have come for us. If any ninjas get involved, I'm heading for the hills.


Sometimes, I stutter.
I don't have a speech impediment, or anything.
No, what happens is that I edit all the time, even when I'm speaking. Sometimes when I'm in the middle of a sentence, I realize that it doesn't express quite the right sentiment, or there's another way to say the same thing, just slightly better.
And then I stutter, until the new, better words find their way out.
