Out of the Blue

That was a pretty great game, especially for a Super Bowl, and congrats to the Steelers. I guess six rings goes the old "one for the thumb" line one better, as now they have one for the other hand. From one odd holiday to another, today is Groundhog Day, and according to Groundhog .org, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, leading to six more weeks of winter in this area. I will say I sort of smell a rat in this whole groundhog deal, as the photos here suggest that in order to be timely with this prognostication, they did their checking on this before sunrise, as all the pictures look like they are shot in complete darkness. Perhaps he was just seeing his shadow from the flash of cameras?

Well, you can thank the democrats for doing the right-thing by trying to bailout the American people - which the republicans oppose, as always, even though they were the ones that tanked the country in the first place.

Very few are against the bailout, most are protesting the blatant pork $$$ going to groups like abortion centers/advocates, ACORN, etc., none of which involve job creation/stimulus, the purpose of the bailout.

Edit - and I don't think that the proposed tax cuts are necessarily being targeted correctly. I do think that the bailout $$$ need to be focused where people can be put to work, and industry and construction are two areas that could use the shot in the arm. Providing abortions and registering more democrats to vote doesn't rank high on my "job creation" wish list.
