If you're a Republican? Why, more of course!
I hate to be a downer going into the weekend, but since the Republicans and their enablers insist on dazzling us with non-issues, clowns debating the non-issues, and loads of just plain nonsense to distract us from reality, I'll happily decorate this post to get your attention and take my chances you'll read it in case you missed some of the following items in the news this week. Chances are good that you did. The chattering classes are deafening. Call it a gift of tough love.
So Much More Than A "Wish List"
A Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? How quaint.
From the "I can't believe we still have to explain this" files, "Trickle Down Economics" actually means most of you get coal in your stocking. REALLY.
Walmart owns you. Service with a "smiley face" no more. They got rid of that. They're not even pretending anymore.
Actually, that's not entirely true. Walmart is sharing you with Bill Gates and ALEC.
Spreading the holiday wealth around. And yes, this is the one instance when you're allowed to say "holiday."
Forced drug testing for welfare recipients didn't work for Scrooge in Florida, but that won't stop them! Grand Old Persistence?
There's lots more where those came from, but I think I've made my point. Except for one more.
I neglected to point out that by the time you've read this, Congress will have already made their way through one third of their paid three day weekend.
