Of plagues and houses

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell addresses the Imperial Senate.

Herself is not manning (womanning?) her post at the Death Star today.

It’s not the Feddle Gummint Shutdown. As I understand it, the outfit has enough cash in the till to stay open for a couple weeks, if the Imperial Senate can keep it up that long for purposes of jerking off.

Nah, she just has that bug that’s been making the rounds. Seems everybody has had some class of the creeping crud lately, and I’m really hoping to avoid my annual dunking in the booger pool. Old dogs need their sleep, and staying up all night coughing is not conducive to the bagging of the Z’s.

Thus there is much drinking of the hot tea, and consumption of fruit, and if the temps crack the freezing point I may go out and pound ground for an hour, try to put The Fear into those cooties. It beats watching The Turtle rub one out.

    Some are having fun with the shutdown.

    BTW, O’G. Assuming you don’t have boogeritis this weekend, can we expect you at the Roundhaus?

    Seems like federalism is right around the corner, but not the way conservatives may like. Nearly every coastal state governor is upset about the possibility of offshore oil drilling, and many states have declared that national parks will remain open on their dime. Not to mention that even a couple of red state governors are going to fund CHIP out of their coffers.

      As more hot button issues are seen as fundamental “rights”, Federalism is being constrained, i.e., gay rights, marriage equality, gun control, abortion, etc. Gives blue and red states more things to fight about because these are now decided on a national level–red issues as pushed by reds and blue issues as pushed by blues.

      Whole thing is insane and both sides see the other as evil rather than just in disagreement.

        I agree Khal. Once there was an authority that enforced ideas like interstate commerce, civil rights, and so forth.

        Worse case is non-cooperation between states on basic issues that people depend upon. Such as water rights, the power grid, national infrastructure, etc.

        If this plays out federal taxes may go low, but state taxes will have to compensate for shortfalls.

    We, the smarter half and I, hope Herself gets better real soon! The flu is kicking some serious ass in Arizona, and hospitals and emergency rooms in Cochise County are getting crowded. The flu strain people are showing up with is a nasty one, with 30 percent of kids and elderly flu patients from the emergency rooms being admitted to the hospital. Shannon’s co-workers should buy her lunch for not showing up and possibly passing it on. You, however, should treat any potential exposure with alcohol, well externally anyway.

    Wait a minute. You say congress isn’t doing its job? I am staggered, shocked, stupefied, dumbfounded, taken aback, flabbergasted, and otherwise dazed.

    Speaking of the Turtle, he is sending more thoughts and prayers to the latest victims of a school shooting today in Kentucky. That surely helps, huh?
