“I left my Thorazine at home again!”

There’s no reason prog insanity shouldn’t be entertaining:

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who has decried the failure of Congress to extend unemployment benefits before its December recess, is talking about changing the vocabulary of assistance.

In a speech Jan. 8 on the House of Representatives floor, Jackson Lee suggested renaming government welfare.

“Maybe the word ‘welfare’ should be changed to something of, ‘a transitional living fund,’” Jackson Lee said, according to a post on The Minority Report blog. “For that is what it is – for people to be able to live,” she said.

Why not just call them “paychecks” and consider walking to the mailbox to be a full time government job? I shouldn’t think out lout because SJL might run with that.

    Look for an amendment proposal to make sure the Constitution will also "provide for the general transitional living fund".

    Hey while were at it, why not change US Representative to Sugar Mama?

    If they call it "paychecks" they might decide to count it as a "job created" as well.

    Has a certain.., Founding Fathers ring to it?

    One thing's for sure, for whatever desecration/defecation Libs perform on The Constitution, equal voting Rights extended to, The Pandered, remains intact at all costs.

    To do otherwise, well, let's just not GO there shall we?

    ThePeopleofWalmart..?

    Really funny.., once you [dare venture] outside the I-5 Corridor's Sanctity ( or any other interstate ) you might actually stumble across REAL Americans? Over the last several years I've spent a 500 mile ( roundtrip commute ) stopping at every high-desert town in OR and N. Cal. Hearty, independent-types that still put Old Glory up on days that end in Y.

    Can't tell you how much it does for one's spirits. To make it thru another day of soft occupation. If THEY can tough it out..!?! What's MY excuse…

    Transitional, as in transitioning from a free country to Obama's plantation slavery state. Of course anything "transitional" is temporary, so those welfare rats who take cues from Rep Nutjob should ask for details on what she plans to transition them to

    I've always felt that all those "faux pas" were deliberate, really bad in jokes.

    O/T…CO Pot stores running into problems.

    The stores are all cash, because the banks will not take drug money for fear of the Federal government linking them to the drug trade. Of course this is making them targets for robberies, not only from the average every day thug, but the cartels (who are pissed at the losses due to the stores).

    The cops are taking a "wait and see approach", so there has been the creation of a company called Blueline Security that deals in pot store security.

    The security company has, as is being reported, security officers in body armor with assault rifles. Of course with the latest gun law on the book the "assault rifles" will have a magazine that will carry no more that 15 rounds (of course the cartel will have the 30 round magazines in their firearms).

    This is looking more and more likely to turn really bad really quick. I hope WA (and the four other states thinking about legalizing pot) take a serious look at what is coming their way.

    What they are weighing the most is the revenue from taxing sales of pot. And after that, when other current illicit drugs are also legalized, even more tax revenue.

    Publicly criticized, to do this as she really is not easy.
