  • Wouldn’t it be great if the Family Research Council’s family values award was $100,000 and the money went directly for child support to Walsh’s ex-family? Then everybody would have reason to be happy.

    How come nobody’s talking about Libya’s oil? Wasn’t it reported recently that the rebels have gained control of 80% of Libya’s production capacity? How do Conoco-Phillips, Shell, Marathon, Hess and Occidental feel about that? Just as in the lead up to Iraq, is this saber-rattling not really all about stable access to and control over Libya’s petroleum resources?

  • You didn’t have to be 21 to get into the Troubador in the late 60′s and early 70′s. My folks used to drop me off there at age 14 or 15. In addition to many of the acts mentioned above, I used to see Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks there. It was the thrill of my young life when one of the Hot Licks winked at me.

    Probably I don’t know enough about the process. I thought lame ducks had nothing to lose until the next vote two years from now. Why wouldn’t Pelosi and Reid let all the Bush tax cuts expire and at the same time use their current majorities and reconciliation to craft a quick bill that would re-create or adjust middle class tax rates as they please? And while they’re at it, couldn’t they use the same reconciliation process to undo Bush’s capital gains tax cuts as well?

    It’s a budget issue. So why can’t this Democrat-dominated lame-duck congress pass whatever tax policy it likes using the reconciliation process?
