Such a hard decision …

Give three million Americans a job earning $30,000 a year for ten years, or give the top one percent of income earners enough money to smoke two luxury cigars every day, lit with $100 bills, for ten years.

That is a tough call, isn’t it?

Thanks, Digby!

Why is the Obama Administration negotiating with terrorists?

The Obama administration and Congressional Democrats still don’t understand that Republicans don’t care if they destroy the country, whether it be by foreign or domestic means.

Because a police state is so much better than a nanny state.

Well, better for the terrorists anyway.

Truth Hurts

(NYPost) George W. Bush’s pro-life stance solidified when he was a teenager in Texas — after his mother suffered a devastating miscarriage and showed him the fetus in a jar, the former president said in an extraordinary interview that airs tonight.

“She said to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s the fetus,’ ” the shockingly candid Bush told NBC’s Matt Lauer, gesturing as if he were holding the jar during the TV chat, a DVD of which The Post exclusively obtained.

“There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life,” said the former president, who had to drive his distraught mother to the hospital at the time.

But “the purpose of the story wasn’t to try show the evolution of a pro-life point of view,” Bush insisted to Lauer.

“It was really to show how my mom and I developed a relationship.”

“I ain’t marching any more”
