So the democrats take control of the Congress in 2006 with the self-proclaimed goal to be the most “honest, open and ethical” Congress ever. They proceed to hold closed-door sessions on immigration reform, they have numerous ethical problems, and some might argue that they aren’t being that honest either.
President Obama is elected and pitches that we need to work together, that he’ll bring bipartisianship back to Washington and that lobbyists will not be a part of governing. We now have the Giant Technicolor Stimulus Bill sitting in Conference Committee. This closed-door session (which it generally is, but maybe shouldn’t be given the prior statements and the severity and size of this bill) reportedly has no members of the minority party. That’s right – zero republicans involved. Bipartisianship. Check. And you have this report in The Register
that Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has likely been coached by several lobbyists (probably the MPAA, maybe the RIAA and someone from a Telco/ISP) to put in language that could impede something called “Network Neutrality”. While the Gormogons do not in any way promote or defend child pornography or copyright infringement, the vagueness and enforcement of such language in this bill could open the way for a host of privacy concerns and problems for Joe-internet user. And where is the the openess and lack of lobbyists? Note that the latest polls have over 55% of Americans opposing this bill in part or whole.
Take this with the effort (at least in behind the scenes words) by the Obama Administration to move the Census oversight into the White House (away from the Commerce Department) really starts making me feel like we’re already on the slippery slope and someone is spreading the oil. I keep hearing Daffy Duck screaming, “Mine, mine, mine. It’s all mine.”
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
