Dear Readers: The recent solar flares have lead to brilliant auroras. I think God is sending us a message, when this dramatic American bald eagle-shaped light show appears in the sky around the same time that Obama is giving the State of the Union Address.
B-Daddy took one for the team last night, watching and live-blogging this State of the Union Address. Some of the lies and half-truths he noted:
Pretty sure his proposal for a minimum tax on international corporations would violate treaty and generally accepted accounting principles.

Taking on China? Who do you think you owe all that swag to?

It’s time to stand for self-governance. It is time to stand for the plain meaning of the Constitution. Every word of the Constitution is important, and we must fight for them all. We must fight for every inch of this country, from the inner city to the smallest rural town. We are, all of us, first and foremost, American citizens. We’ve always governed ourselves…and we always intend to. And we’ve always been willing to stand when freedom is at stake. It is time to stand…time for all of us, every race, every religion, every gender, every American to stand up and fight for liberty and take responsibility for governing ourselves.

In heroic Blue Dog Dem News, a couple of irate Dem law-makers in Sacramento are bringing suit because our Democratic Controller John Chiang docked law-maker pay for failure to make a budget in a timely manner — per a Democrat-sponsored proposition that passed. Chris Reed has more on this tasty story: Q: What best describes Dem lawmakers’ pay lawsuit? A) dumb B) doltish C) despicable D) all of the above
I’m going with D.
