They have a cunning plan

Wyoming Senator John Barrasso gave today's weekly Republican radio address, and in it he proudly claimed that the Republican party is even more socialist than the Democrats:

Republicans support a comprehensive energy plan. A plan that puts Americans to work. A plan that harnesses American resources.

O the glory of the Centralized Plan handed down from Washington.

Bubba's Book Club

Neil Peart has some new book reviews up.

Obama's "civil discourse"

From Diogenes:

I see nothing wrong with swatting flies.

Let's say that you have a different opinion. You think the lives of flies are sacred, and therefore you think that swatting flies is grossly immoral. You hold this view with the utmost sincerity. Unfortunately for you, I'm making the rules. And I say:

* You can't refer to fly-swatting as "murder." That would be "hate speech," inciting others to violence.
* You can't interfere when I swat flies.
* You must contribute to the purchase of fly swatters.

Now, with those ground-rules established, let's begin a civil discussion of the morality of swatting flies. There's no need for anger, recrimination, or name-calling. We have a sincere different of opinion. Let's-- oh, wait, excuse me a moment [thwack!]-- find some common ground.
