OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Back to the Drawing Board

The Chichester reboot proposal having failed (in what the TD's Tyler Whitley describes as a "revolt by Republicans and Democrats"), the nabobs are back where they started. With the addition, of course, of that silly-damned tax on "big oil companies."

The economic illiteracy of some members is dumbfounding. Ah well.

This almost brings things back to square one, but with a critical difference: the Senate has begun to fold. Will the House be able to press its earlier advantage? Hard to say. But yesterday's flurry of activity helped their cause a great deal.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns

"Don't pretend that you know me...cause I don't even know myself" -- The Who
