Mandatory Recycling

Bring this to my home of Denver and I’ll be easy to spot.

I’ll be the guy driving down I-25 chugging cans of Mountain Dew just so I can chuck the empties out the window.

I’m pretty sure such a requirement would cause me to pop a vein in my head and throw me into full on anti-dirt eater mode.

Let’s also not forget about the economy and the additional cost to people that would come from such a program.

Omnibus Bill, Top 20 Earmarking Senators

Eight of the twenty are Republicans, six of those eight are among the top ten.

That should go a long way in convincing the American people that Republicans are fiscally responsible.

What a wasted opportunity to demonstrate leadership.

Taliban To Obama, ‘No Moderates In Our Ranks’

Last weekend President Obama made it know that he was entertaining the idea of talks with the “moderate” wing of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

This is simply evidence that not only is Obama winging it on the economy, he plans to wing it so far as foreign policy as well.

Moderate Taliban?

Talks with terrorists, mass murderers?

President Obama was rebuffed by the Taliban Tuesday.

The Taliban has squarely rejected US President Barack Obama’s call for negotiating with its ‘moderate’ arm to bring the ‘War on terror’ in the region to end.

Qari Mohammad Yousuf, a representative of the Taliban had the following to say:

This does not require any response or reaction from us as this is illogical […]

The Taliban are united, have one leader, one aim, one policy.I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means
