Friday Potpourri

Aren’t you glad we’re in the Summer of Recovery? Now that it’s gotten that label, we know how we’re supposed to feel. Don’t you think it’s kind of strange, though, to label it as such and then be told by Vice President Biden that we’ll never recover those eight million lost jobs?

Gives you all kinds of confidence in the administration, doesn’t it? I have an idea. How about just allowing the private sector to create those jobs instead of going into a black hole of debt that will never work? Too radical?

Well, at least Congress is doing its job. They have almost designed a brand new federal agency to look out for us foolish consumers. It’s also going to have the power to pass regulations without the approval of Congress. Oh, and it’s going to hit the financial industry with more costs. You know, the kind that get passed on to us. And guess who’s not covered or mentioned at all in this “reform” package.

At least we had some comic relief during the week with the Kagan hearings, where we were treated to in-depth answers to some of our greatest constitutional issues.

Well, what do you expect from someone who has never been a judge who is now about to take a seat on the highest court in the land? Is that a problem?

Oh, we’ve already been down this road. How’s that working out?
