Hate Crimes Legislation is KILLED by the Utah Senate

Well the great Utah legislature has done it again. Well actually they have done nothing again. Despite wide-spread popularity, a couple of conservative Senators killed this year’s hate crime bill.

Thanks again for doing the peoples work.

More Spending, Fewer Programs, Raiding Social Security

What the hell is George W. Bush doing? He is cutting spending across the board for domestic programs, while increasing spending for defense and homeland security. George’s policy of defense has not made me or any other American safer. And in this midst of all of these budget cuts for important domestic policies THE BUDGET ACTUALLY INCREASES SPENDING!

Oh and a few other notes:

The budget does not include this year’s cost for the wars in Iraq and Afganistan. It also does not incude the cost of “saving” social security, which will require massive government borrowing.
