The Blog Catches Up With Ten Tired Topics

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Gorilla’s not been blogging lately, mostly because he’s got nothing more to say about the following topics:

1) GOP intransigence: Now in Year 5.

2) Immigration reform: Never had a chance, will never have a chance until Republicans are booted back to a minority in all three branches of government.

3) ENDA: ditto.

4) Healthcare reform: a big botch, mainly because Medicare for all would have been much easier to implement, so long as your vested interest wasn’t insurance.

5) Chris Christie: he’ll never be the GOP nominee for President.

6) Ken Cuccinelli: Off to the land of grifterhood.

7) Euroland: finally decided to do some of the right thing with interest rates, but still not doing what’s needed: a much higher inflation target, the end of austerity, and a big increase in German consumption.

8) Fed: See Euroland.

9) Hillary Clinton: if she runs, she’ll win, if she doesn’t, Dems will win anyway.

10: Gun Control: see Immigration and ENDA.

Chris Christie Loves To Waste Money

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

So long as it’s wasted solely to advance his political career.

Sorry, venerable Charlie Pierce, but calling a special election a month early for no other reason than to diminish Democratic turnout is cheap and cynical politics.

Not that surprising, but $10-25 million could have hired a lot of New Jersey’s unemployed (current rate: 8.7%, a real triumph for a governor just as far right as any who rule below the Mason-Dixon line) for several years.

Gorilla says: “It’s not all a chess game, people’s lives are being ruined, by Christie and by the US Senate!”

Of Course He’s A Liar

Know Nothing Governors always are!!!

What’s less thrilling is that it takes the press so long to figure it out.
