Monday Afternoon Web Walk

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly are a few of the category names I could use but I'm not.

So as Mr. Serling used to say: "Submitted for your consideration:"

Funniest thing I've seen in a long time (many bloggers have been posting this like mad, so count me among them.) Here's a clue for those idjits in elected/appointed offices - if Steve Colbert wants to interview you, you're probably an idiot.

Well deserved kudos to Congressman Duncan for his vote against the meaningless non-binding resolution praising all efforts in Iraq. Go right to Congressman's web page and read some of his thoughts on the non-conservative wasteful and dubious achievements of the GOP-led administration. (BTW, Congressman Ford voted the same way.) A taste of what you'll find on Duncan's mind:

"There has been fighting going on in the Middle East for several thousand years. If we say we have to stay until there is perfect peace, that time will never come."

And

"It is sad that some conservatives, who have always been the main opponents of big government, have gone along with this huge expansion of government power just because the word terrorism is used by every government agency now to get more money and power."

How about hiding spending tax dollars from a local perspective. Hamblen County Commissioner Linda Noe rips away the curtain behind the sheriff's office (or tries too). I wonder if this is just one reason the current sheriff was not re-elected??

Speaking of being cancelled - the Chung-Povich show reveals yes, they have no idea what to do with a TV show. I've seen better things on public access. (via NiT)

Does it matter what Bob Corker's daughter does?

Lessons in getting attention for Immigration Reform - the press may find out you only prosecuted 4 employers in 2003, down from 182 in 1998.

"
Between 1999 and 2003, work-site enforcement operations were scaled back 95 percent by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, which subsequently was merged into the Homeland Security Department. The number of employers prosecuted for unlawfully employing immigrants dropped from 182 in 1999 to four in 2003, and fines collected declined from $3.6 million to $212,000, according to federal statistics."

More later!
