So, Smutty learned today that Wisconsin considers mandatory health care for all Americans to be unconstitutional, but suffering and dying citizens is OK under the Constitution. To fight this unlawful mandate, the Governor of Wisconsin has refused $37 million in Federal funds to help insure his constitutens. After all, the residents of Wisconsin elected him to make sure the Federal Government follows the Constitution, not create a better quality of life for them. Go Wisconsin.
Republican candidate for President Mitt Romney has math issues again when he states that being behind Rick Santorum by 34 votes is a “virtual tie”, not a loss. And in more Republican vote finagling, the votes from eight precincts are missing. Hmmm, can anyone remember Florida hanging chads? Smutty’s just sayin’.
An Italian cruise ship Captain says he “tripped and landed in a lifeboat with some passengers”. Smutty is no expert on seafaring but, what kind of captain trips into a lifeboat instead of directing the passengers in and having the crew do the actual lowering of the lifeboat? Story sounds fishy to me (hmm, fish for lunch). The Captain has already been caught in several lies about the accident, and has admitted to one outright. Why would we believe anything he says about this incident. Just put him in jail and leave us to sort out the aftermath in peace.
Finally, Smutty learned that you can make your mortgage payments on time and get kicked out because your lender, broker or title company goes out of business. And if none of these get you, you can lose your home by making your payments too early. Yes, each of these things happened to some well meaning humans just trying to keep their homes, but the wonderful banks operate in another space time continuum.
Whew, Smutty needs a nap already and he just had his cup of cocoa…
