  1. Dubya said he lost money in the downturn–which will make it tough for him to pay for his new digs in North Dallas.

    Me and a couple of redneck buddies plan to drive up there every few weeks to trim the lawn and do a few fix-em-up jobs around the place to help out. Laura says she will feed us at the back porch on those colorful Audubon bird plates with real utensils.

  2. On a more serious note, American noncongressional citizens have never enjoyed the pension perks as those of our elected officials. Who among we commoners even knows what their tax-rate assessments are? Same as ours…I suspect not. I understand their pension amounts are guaranteed, but guaranteed via what savings/investment institution or instrument? Perhaps Fort Knox itself.

    They have the benefit of voting themselves pay raises and establishing their own expense budgets subject to the approval of some self-serving committee made up likenesses of themselves.
