    That one elicited a grin…..

    At least he’s known to other people, which is a requirement for being a celebrity. My wife and I were watching Fox News “Outnumbered” just an hour ago, as they were discussing Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber and whether or not celebrities have responsibilities to be role models.
    .
    One of the panelists pontificated, “As celebrities, I think we have to……”
    .
    Neither of us had ever seen her before, had never heard her name mentioned before, didn’t know who she was or even why she was on the panel. Even a couple of the other panelists blinked a bit at her comment. I guess she’s celebrated — for something — in her own mind.

    They’ve been looking for a boy of his caliber for a long time.

    Yep, the midterms were won by Republicans. But, if you check the numbers for the house of representatives, you’ll see that in every single state, more people voted for Democratic house candidates than voted for Republican candidates. Boehner even acknowledged that at one of the victory parties when he told the Republican caucus that the only reason they had a House majority is because they were skilled at redistricting (read gerrymandering).

    According to http://useconomy.about.com/od/inflationfaq/f/value_of_a_dollar_today.htm, today’s dollar is worth $.75 in 2000 dollars.
    .
    That means the fiscal 2014 EPA budget of $8.3B (http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/2B686066C751F34A852579A4007023C2/$File/FY2013_BIB.pdf) is worth 6.2B year 2000 dollars.
    .
    the 2000 EPA budget was $7.2B (http://www.ehso.com/ehshome/epa-budget.htm).
    .
    That means the current agency is working with over a billion dollars less purchasing power than it was 15 years ago. That may be why it’s “less efficient” now than it was then — the taskings didn’t get any smaller even though the resources did.

    Yep, the private sector was very efficient in Durango, Colorado, last week. Remember, the orange river wasn’t caused by the EPA — there wasn’t a single government employee on site (there would have been three years ago, but budget cuts eliminated a lot of the oversight the EPA used to provide).
    .
    Instead, it was a private contractor who spilled the toxic waste into the river. In fact, it was the lowest bidder on the contract, who had lots of incentives to cut costs and speed things up.
    .
    Most “government” problems are caused by contractors trying to maximize profits.

    Texas may very well be the largest purchaser — it’s the only state I’ve heard of that stores educational material at the state level, as witness the “Texas School Book Depository.”

    I don’t listen to The Rushbo very often, but I did hear him make a complaint that became my very favorite Limbaugh comment. He was musing about political factions and said, “I’ll never be able to understand why most of the intelligent, thoughtful, educated people I know turn out to be liberal.” Sometimes I’m glad he doesn’t listen to himself.

    Not sure about Alice, but her friend Elmont is on the street because Reagan’s policies unhoused thousands of people with mental problems. The problem of mentally ill being either on the street or in prison persists to this day. It has cost the taxpayer many times what was saved.

    Long ago there was a Wizard of Id with the wizard sitting deep in thought. He suddenly sat up straight with an expression of inspiration as a light bulb appeared over his head.
    .
    In the final frame, he’s on his stool with a bunch of bulbs on the floor, as he says “I need ideas, and all I get is light bulbs.”
