Big T Pic of the Day.

Britain says the US is in a Great Depression

There Oughta be a new Congressman in Illinois.

Stupid ideas never die and come from both sides of the political aisle. This time the good idea fairy is 6th District Illinois Republican Congressman Peter J. Roskam.

Roskam proposed his “There Oughta be a Law” initiative at a press conference in Bloomingdale, IL. Tuesday and released the following statement on his website:

“As a member of Congress, I have learned first hand what most 6th District residents already know, Washington is broken. Partisan politics have hamstrung Congress’ ability to find solutions to the most pressing problems our nation faces.”

“The constituents I represent are reasonable folks with sound ideas – and it’s time to send a little more 6th District solutions to Washington,” said Roskam. “Therefore I am proud to give my constituents the unique opportunity to have their legislative idea introduced in Congress. The very best way to restore faith in our nation’s government is to empower individuals. This is the ultimate definition of representative government.”

“Working together, we will send more common sense to Washington and Springfield.”

And more damn laws. You know one of the problems we have in this country is there are to many laws already on the books. Congressmen like Roskam -- and believe me he isn’t the only one -- thinks it his duty to add even more laws to the books. At least he wants to give you a say in what new laws might be I guess.

Of course this is not a new idea. Similar types of contest have been used in other places. In 2005 Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Tom Stevens proposed a bill from an 11-year-old boy that would require drivers to keep their dogs heads inside the vehicle at all times and require dogs to be in seatbelts or some type of carrying transport devise.

Wow, I can’t wait for more ridiculous legislation like that.

If we are going to have an “Oughta be a Law” contest then we should have some Big T law proposals:

1.Two-year term limits for idiots like Peter J. Roskam.
2. For each new proposed law, two older laws (related or not) will be proposed for removal.
3. The next congressman to propose a law out of the guidelines of the constitution shall be shot by the people.

Of course if I were to have it my way there would be an “Ought not be a Law” contest to suggest laws that infringe on freedom and our in desperate need of repeal.

Dems use footage of IEDs killing Soldiers in new Anti-war add against McCain

I am highly disappointed at the Democrat National Committee for exploiting footage of an IED attack on American Soldiers in Iraq to run anti-war ads against Sen. John McCain, but I am definitely not surprised. This is the type of behavior I have come to expect from the party invested in our defeat.

What is the most disturbing part is democrats are using these images of Soldiers killed by IEDs to get votes and raise money. Al Qaeda uses the same images to raise money, gain support and solicit martyrs. One has got to wonder; where did the DNC get this footage, and just what side are they actually on?

You know there is an old Arab proverb “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
In this case, the DNC using terrorist propaganda to advance themselves, it becomes the enemy of my enemy is my philosophically agreeable friend.

The cult…oops I mean The Church of Scientology is launching their own channel on YouTube in order to “share the truth.” Actually no…I did mean cult.
It seems teachers having sex with students has become so widespread someone has actually created a website tracking all these student-molesting teachers cases.
Here is one for golf fans. This is the most amazing hole in one I have ever seen. Fuzzy Zeller must have had one hell of a spin on that ball. You got to see this one to believe it.
