In a move teeming with irony, the Senate voted to privatize their cafeteria. The irony is that the Democrats even considered it. But it's not so much that the food was that bad, it's that this situationaffected them directly. Had this taxpayer-subsidized cafeteria been anywhere else other than in the Senate, it would have continued to be a tax-subsidized entity, because it would be regarded as a "sacred cow" by the Senate Dems. Right wing writers and commentators are already all over this story, telling the Senate Dems to apply thier privatization logic into other areas.
I'm neither liberal Democrat nor conservative Republican; nor do I fall in between the two extremes as a "moderate", because I take stands rather than simply find a middle ground. My views depend upon the issue, so the only way to describe someone who is against both legalized abortion and the death penalty is as an independent. So whether you're liberal, conservative. or any of the points between, there's something for you to like -and not like. And there's other things to see as well. I generally post about 2 to 3 times a week. If I am gone for a certain amount of time, I'll say when I'm leaving, and when I expect to be back. Welcome!
