Throwing Tea

When this country split off from England there was a great concept, No Taxation Without Representation. I think we've gotten back to that grounds again.

I was just listening to a little CSpan announcement, that the House will reconvene at 1 p.m. ET, to consider a bill that makes some technical adjustments to a highway bill. They will be discussing that a Florida highway project was inserted into the bill after it had been passed by the House and the Senate. Calling on the DOJ to investigate it. Oh, right that DOJ.

No Taxation Without Representation.

Our country has been taken over by criminals.

At least Lurita Doan just resigned.

Lurita Doan, head of the General Services Administration, was forced to offer her resignation tonight, according to an e-mail she sent out this evening.

Doan was appointed in late May, 2006, becoming the first woman to serve as GSA Administrator. With 12,000 empioyees and a $20 billion annual budget, GSA has responsibilty for overseeing the thousands of building and properties owned by the federal government.

Doan became the subject of congressional scrutiny last year for allegedly using GSA to help Republican lawmakers win re-election. Doan denied the allegation, but her appearance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was disastrous. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), chairman of the panel, called on Doan to resign over the allegations, but Doan refused to step down.

One down, a whole executive branch of crooks to go. We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Off they go, to live on their ill-gotten gains and wingnut welfare?

Where's the accountability, I want to know. If they get a free pass for their crimes, who's to say they won't come back to afflict the world Elliot Abrams, for instance?

I'm for confiscation of ill gotten gains. At the Hague, in the dock, there's a beginning.
