Gag me with a spoon
British Petroleum, aka B.P., gave a million bucks to the Obama campaign according to some reports. I know Oil Producers and others, who depend on government regulators and politicians for permits and exemptions, donate heavily to those who might be elected. They should be able to see now the money is wasted.
We need to clean house in D.C. and that means everybody. I intend to vote for candidates who have never spent one day in the U. S. Legislative Branch. I intend to avoid those with law degrees in favor of those who have been in some kind of business that provides a service or produces a product.
I found a great new political commentary written by Louis la Vache, aka Paul Cruce, entitled Right Turns Only. Thanks to Paul for many of the clever cartoons and photos I use here on Pappy's Place. (right click on the highlighted title) (a left click will get you nowhere)
The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that carries any reward.
