    Hah!

    My anarchist mom wanted to make a "where's my bailout?" T-shirt, but decided against it when her friends seemed too honestly sympathetic with a "bailouts for everybody" plan.

    I know exactly where my bailout is.

    It's tied up in the American Structured Securities Rescue Act for a Prudent Economy.

    Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

    If I don't get a bailout, I can't feed my kids. Won't you please think of the children?

    For a second there I thought some really awesome congressman might have came up with an awesome amendment to that bill.

    Damn. When I ran out of money to finish fixing my fixer-upper that I got with a no-doc mortgage, I sold it. Managed to pay off my mortgages but was left with some hefty credit card debt, which I took a second job to pay off.

    That was two years ago. I have $3000 left of that credit card debt. Aren't I at least deserving of a teeny weeny bailout? Or even if I'm not deserving, won't someone help me anyway?

    I'm telling you I worked my ass off on that house. It was in such bad shape, rehabbing it was a public works project.

    Thu Oct 30, 2008 6:15pm EDT

    DUBAI (Reuters) - An al Qaeda leader has called for President George W. Bush and the Republicans to be "humiliated," without endorsing a party in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, according to an Internet video posting.

    "O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him," Abu Yahya al-Libi said at the end of sermon marking the Muslim feast of Eid al-Fitr, in a video posted on the Internet. ...

    Well, there you have it.

    Osama is NOT endorsing Obama for president.

    *wink, nod*

    It's an old political trick. If anything positive happens anywhere in the world, take credit for it. If anyone gets spanked over something, position yourself in such a way that it looks like you had a hand in their admonishment.

    IT looks like Al Qaeda are picking up tricks from Lyndon LaRouche
