Whats Happening?

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on May 18th, 2007 6:18 am by HL

How you all doing out there. Just a quick note to say that I am trying to get back to doing the Comics.
It’s been a long time since I was able to do one. Unfortunately they will no longer let me use the internet at work so it seriously curtails my time to work on the site. (I miss the old days where I could spend as much time as necessary on them before I had a full time job.) I have been extremely busy lately, but am dedicated to getting more work done on the site. I have ideas for 2 comics right now and will try to do them tomorrow. (If I am not working at another job) Stay tuned for more good stuff from the HL. Meanwhile here are a couple of other stories (and a Comic flashback) Talk to you soon.


Bush: Pay Raise For Troops is Too Much

White House: Planned pay gains too costly

Stars and Stripes
Excerpt
As the House of Representatives prepared to pass its fiscal 2008 defense authorization bill, the White House urged lawmakers to reconsider a host of costly personnel initiatives added by the Armed Services Committee.

Initiatives opposed by the White House included:
Bigger pay raises

The House was set to vote for a 3.5 percent basic pay increase for January 2008. That’s 0.5 percent higher than proposed by the Bush administration. The House would continue a string of annual raises set 0.5 percent higher than private sector wage growth through at least 2012.

The “unnecessary” extra half-percentage bump in pay would cost $265 million in 2008 and $7.3 billion over six years, budget officials complained.

“When combined with the overall military benefit package, the President’s proposal provides a good quality of life for service members and their families,” said the OMB letter to committee leaders.

Both House Republicans and Democrats disagreed. Rep. Thelma Drake, R-Va., offered the amendment, adopted by the armed services committees, to stretch the string of bigger raises out to 2012.

HL’s Take
There he goes again…Supporting the troops as usual. Bush is also against Increasing Widows Benefits What a Patriot, what a super Patriot, so
Bush doesn’t want to give the troops extra money for putting there lives on the line to support his lies lies lies. That would mean a few less dollars in his wallet. Way to go Georgie showing his true colors (green)


Wolfie Out, What Incompetent Boob Will Bush Pick Next?

White House to quickly replace Wolfowitz

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – Trying to put a controversy behind it, the Bush administration was wasting no time finding a successor to
World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz, who will resign over his handling of a pay package for his girlfriend.

Wolfowitz on Thursday announced that he would step down at the end of June, his leadership undermined by a furor over the compensation he arranged in 2005 for Shaha Ali Riza, a bank employee.

His departure ends a two-year run at the development bank that was marked by controversy from the start, given his previous role as a major architect of the Iraq war when he served as the No. 2 official at the Pentagon.

It also ends a potential political headache for President Bush, who had named Wolfowitz to the post.

HL’s Take
Potential political headache for Bush they say? More like an actual headache for Bush (along with his many other headaches) that has been going on for the last month and a half. Ah good old AP still covering for the murder monkey and trying to take the heat off of him in any way possible. So who will Bush appoint next? Using the HL formula of predicting the future just think of the worst possible choice, and that will probably be the guy…Well let’s see…Hitler’s dead, so it won’t be him. Cheney still has a job….Hmm sounds like a good idea for another comic. Meantime Bush’s headaches won’t go away any time soon just as we showed in this comic from back on October 6, 2005 called Does This Man Look Happy? In which I also successfully predicted that Bush would be moving to South America after his term. I just got the country wrong. (I said Brazil, not Paraguay.) Check it out.

Bush has lots of headaches.
