Does anyone else feel like you are stuck in a bad Si-Fi plot? This is crazy.
Please read thisand send your CA 30th District friends an invitation to chat with their honorable Rep Henry Waxman (cough, gag) and remind him that it's not nice to lie. He apparently needs a refresher course in the legislative process, so he can stop wasting paper writing letters that point responsibility to the sacrificial lambs of the CPSIA.
On an equally important note, please look at this video(get a mug of something strong before watching it, especially if you are a "mommy blogger") and tell me if the term "hanging chad" rings a bell. Who did that woman cross to keep getting the "human shield" position? At least someone from this decade is doing her styling. (I hear she recently resigned from the CPSC... maybe there was an opening at the PR office for Guantanamo) More fun commentary at the National Bankruptcy Day website.
It is important to note that contrary to what some of us (who, me?) wanted to believe (whether we liked it or not) Obama can't stop this, other than encouraging his buddies (Congressman Waxman and Congressman Rush) to do the right thing. I am concerned that he may not have time to get together for a round of golf any time in the next couple of weeks, so energy on getting him to help is pretty much a waste. Ironically, he could have done more before he was elected President. (he didn't even vote on HR4040 when he was in the Senate) It's up to us to persuade them, so let's get after the guys that can actually do something before it's too late.
Does anyone else want to nominate Kathleen Fasanella from Fashion Incubator as our queen? This is how I picture her
