Liberal bicycle commuter, political junkie, policy junkie, free thinker, I've got too many titles. All in all I'll leave it with a quote from the late Senator Paul Wellstone of Minn. "Politics is not about big money and power games, it's about the improvment of peoples lives."

Bunny Pants and the South

Finally the Dems are showing a minute amount of back bone. Rep. George Miller of California decided that Bunny Pants went to far when on September 8th when he signed paperwork overturning the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act in the hurricane ravaged south. Davis-Bacon states that companies under government contract must pay the prevailing wage of the area. Bunny Pants did not want to see those damn people in the south getting back on their feet especially those pesky brown people that he claims to care sooo much for. One way to look at this is Bunny Pants wants to limit the amount of money that the people in the south can make even though they lost everything. On the other hand there is no cap put on the windfall profits that these companies can make.

This is a perfect example how Bunny Pants looks at the average everyday American as "less than" big bidness (bidness...not a typo, this is seriously how Bush pronounces it.) All Dems are behind Miller with several blood thirsty republicans in tow as well. You think the Reps. that are on the fence or against the overturn are feeling a bit squeamish right now, I bet they are.

The idea that Bush even signed this suspension of the 1931 Act speaks volumes about his character, morality and most of all his "compassionate conservatism....remember that one??
