I’m not going to say that all of us so-called “Tea Party wackos” told you so, but…. well, we told you so! And it’s not going to get any better – just wait until companies by the thousands start ending health insurance benefits starting, oh, round about January of next year. Who was it who said health care costs will go down and you get to keep your own doctor? Hmmm…

All I can say to the Denver airport folks is, welcome to my world (my boldings):

Although officials have been removing 100 rabbits from the area every month, the damage continues. The persistent presence of rabbits can be attributed to the fact that the airport is surrounded by a prairie and the rabbits look to the vehicles for warmth and food.

“They come to the recently driven cars for warmth, and once they’re there, they find that many of the materials used for coating ignition cables are soy-based, and the rabbits find that quite tasty,” Wiley Faris, a spokesman for the nearby Arapahoe Autotek repair center, said.

Nearby apartment buildings have also been complaining about the animals. “A lot of people have called us,” Faris said. “They return to their cars and either they won’t start or they don’t run well because the wires are all chewed up.”

The perpetrators were identified by the fur and pellets they left behind.

Fortunately we’ve learned our lessons over many years of bunny cohabitation – some of them more hard than others. The folks in Denver don’t know what they’re up against, I can tell you that!

While I’m about as unmilitary as one can get, I have to agree with General McChrystal on this. Not only would it make the sacrifice involved shared by everyone without distinction to race, creed, class, social strata, etc., it would help reinforce the whole basic concept that the freedoms we share (and, in my humble opinion) overly abuse aren’t free. It would also teach young people valuable lessons about discipline and subverting one’s wants and needs for the good of the team – qualities sorely missing in our culture these days.

Hmmm…I may no longer be able to get mail on Saturdays but at least I’ll be able to show my appreciation for that icon of governmental efficiency by wearing something from their new clothing line! What will they think of next – perhaps suspending Friday deliveries and opening up a USPS-themed restaurant chain? (Hat tip: Hot Air)
