Here's your lump of coal!!

9:00 A.M. Christmas morning and my twenty year old son is still in bed asleep. I guess that the fascination of getting up at the crack of dawn to see what Santa has brought is over. At least we get to sleep late now. On the down side, I do miss that big plate of cookies that they used to leave out on the table for me, I mean for Santa.

Early yesterday, the Senate left the biggest lump of coal in history in the stockings of Americans. This bill is the new record holder in the politics of payoffs. From the New Louisiana Purchase to the Cornhusker Kickback, Harry "The Grinch" Reid spent our money buying votes for this testimony to the stupidity of lawmakers.

Both the House and the Senate managed to pass a bill that failed to address the problem of malpractice suits. This is what happens when a group of crooks, excuse me, lawyers, try to tell doctors how to practice medicine.

The New Louisiana Purchase involved pumping more money into that backwater cesspool to get Mary "I'm no cheap Ho" Landrieu to vote for this alleged health care reform bill. After the cost of Katrina, there is no need to spend any more money trying to keep that swamp above sea level. Move them all to Harry Reid's home state and turn Louisiana into a bombing range. Bomb the levees and let nature take it's course. New Orleans could be the new Venice.

The only bone that the Senate threw to doctors was to kill a proposed 5% tax on doctors with a 10% tax on tanning salons. How did we elect 60 people this frigging stupid?

Our remaining hope is that the House and Senate Democraps will kill each other trying to reconcile two bills that are both hazardous to our health.
