In these hard economic times everyone is looking for ways to save money, especially the Republican Party. Cutting anything related to health, education, or other basic needs (While trumping up war spending and corporate/ wealthy subsidies).
Yes, there is a need to be frugal, and trim the fat, but Bruce Caswell, a Republican Senator from Michigan decided to do this in a truly ridiculous way, by punishing foster children.
Foster children in Michigan would use their state-funded clothing allowance only in thrift stores under a plan suggested by State Senator Bruce Caswell.
Caswell says he wants to make sure that state money set aside to buy clothes for foster children and kids of the working poor is actually used for that purpose.
He says they should get “gift cards” to be used only at Salvation Army, Goodwill or other thrift stores.
So now a kid with no family, who has a much lower chance of success, not only can't have their own parents, but they can't have new clothes?
While yes, there should be some caps, a $15 shirt at Target or Walmart or Jc-Penny should be ok over a $40 shirt at American Eagle, saying "You have to use hand me downs" is just a joke.
Caswell defends this by saying “I never had anything new,” “I got all the hand-me-downs. And my dad, he did a lot of shopping at the Salvation Army
Sure, I bet Caswell never got anything new in his life, or his parents paying for him to go through college/ Helping him achieve some wonderful dreams.
This guy is almost as much of a dick as Rick Santorum, which at least due to some help by Dan Savage, got his name a new meaning

We all watched a few days ago as the UK goalie let a goal roll by him carelessly, allowing the US to tie the soccer match 1 to 1. Apparently the British can't stop a leak, or an errant ball.
But this faux pas definitely is worse, and more hysterical. Apparently no one working in the TV Industry is smart enough to realize what they are showing on the television, so when Nicaragua and Germany played a match, we ended with the following titles.
Someone probably got fired when they noticed this one. lol.
Thanks to Steph for sending me the photo.

For some reason all I could think about today was the BP Fiasco in the gulf coast. A ridiculous amount of oil being spewed into the sea, with no clear plan of action to resolve the issue. Partially due to the fact that BP Never came up with any sort of plan, in case this sort of crap happened. It was one of those "Ehh, IF something happens, we might think about it.
Anyways, I figured that the remainder of this week I would put up some comics and things I make about the BP Spill. This idea sparked my mind as I heard some radio shows talking about how oil companies are focusing on renewable energy and alternative energy resources.
Well apparently so is BP

2 years ago, they began to come under a lot of pressure regarding their lack of spending on any renewable resources.
Sadly, that hasn't changed much. It looks as if BP will be spending more money cleaning up this disaster, than on all of it's alternative energy research in the last 5 years. Way to go BP!
