They Really Care

Hundred of Alabama National Guard personnel are being shipped to the “Big Sandbox” in May and Blonde Sense reports that an amendment sponsored by Rep. Martin Sabo (D-MN) that would have provided $300 million to provide backup emergency communications equipment for the Gulf Coast was defeated by the party of “compassionate conservatives”.

This hurricane season is going to be just as bad as 2005 and we are on our own.

I wonder if the Republicans understand that if the power is out we will be voting with paper ballots and counting by hand, not using Diebold equipment.

Tonight, March 17, 2006, on Florida Public Radio’s Capitol Report strategists Geoffrey Becker and Damien Filer were discussing the Senate race and it was mentioned that in the latest poll for the state, John Ellis Bush, the most popular Republican in the state, would lose in a race against Bill Nelson.

This is a first, and does not bode well for Cruella’s chances, nor for Republicans in other statewide races.

I was down for about 18 hours. Both the Culture Ghost and the Grumpy Forester have gotten tagged as “spam blogs” recently through some totally unknown and unseen process that denied them access.

The rest of us have been subjected to being “down for maintenance” or “403 – access forbidden” on a rolling basis as servers are played with at Blogger headquarters.

Now, only some of my Blogspot blog roll will respond.

I guess I may have to actually spend some money on my hobby and move this to a real server.

I hate the thought of fixing all of the links, a real pain.

Well everyone agrees that he died on March 17 th, but the year is subject to debate. This is his feast day on the Catholic calendar. Enjoy as you are wont.

Wikipedia has more on Saint Patrick’s Day, if you need more.

Now that you mention it, I do seem to remember tugging on that.
