Save for Ron Paul and a half a dozen others like him - stuff like this just makes me ill. I have ZERO optimism. Greece - please have a fire sale on your islands and gold please go UP.

Re: Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) rips up Rahm Emanuel

Until yesterday Massa was my Congressman.  He was in his first term after retiring from the Navy.  His announcements that he wouldn't run again and then that he was resigning all blew up in the past week or so and this article fairly sums up his situation as I understand it:

http://prescriptions.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/08/massa-says-health-care-stand-contributed-to-his-resignation/

Quote:

In recent days, he has given several explanations for his decision not to seek re-election and then to resign more immediately. First, he cited a recurrence of cancer. Mr. Massa, a former Navy officer, received a diagnosis of terminal lymphoma in 2001 but recovered.

Then Mr. Massa acknowledged the harassment allegation against him, admitting that he was guilty of using “salty” language in the privacy of his home and his office. He denied any further wrongdoing.

But in a local radio show on Sunday, Mr. Massa suggested that a more sinister conspiracy was under way to push him out because he had voted against the House health care legislation. “They will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill,” he said of Democratic leaders. “Now they have gotten rid of me, and it will pass.”

He was strongly pro-public option in his health care stance, but that all appears to be moot at this point.  I'm sure there will be more coming out, as these things take on lives of their own and the media feeding frenzy develops.  He supposedly is going to appear on Glenn Beck.  That should be good for comic relief, but not much else.

For the record: I'm fine with the toga as long there is plenty to drink. Mayor? NO. No government, no signs, just guiding principles.

Rising water is preferable to rising sewage. Also, I read the caps are freezing again, I'll have to see what Al Gore says.

Moving to a tropical island should make a loud statement that water and warming don't scare me!

Hee hee.

I think we can do better:

Exports: 1 (Fiat currency for use as world reserve currency, use not allowed inside Isle of Martenson)

Imports: Any (after all we supply a very valuable export)

Money mouth
