Maine Governor, pushing end to taxes, vetoes 128 bills



Can you imagine George W. Bush having an agenda item, like securing the border, and then saying, "I will veto all bills that come across my desk until the border fence is fully funded", and then carrying through on his promise? Can you imagine Mitt Romney doing that, or John McCain, or Jeb Bush?

If you can't, meet Maine Governor Paul LePage. He has all the worst qualities that the media finds in a Republican--combative, ideological, pugnacious. Why the very first sentence of the New York Times article introduces him as "Paul R. LePage, Maine’s combative governor"!

The problems began with Mr. LePage’s desire to eliminate the income tax by increasing and broadening the sales tax.

The problem began with.... reducing taxes is always a "problem". Ever see a sentence written "The problems began when ____ wanted to increase spending."?

Mr. LePage also has refused to release money for bond issues approved by voters. And he declared that he would veto every bill sponsored by a Democrat until Democrats supported his proposed constitutional amendment to eliminate Maine’s income tax.

In mid-June, after the Legislature passed a budget that did not include his tax-cut proposals, the governor showed off a Christmas tree outside his office. It was adorned with the pictures of legislators he said had loaded up the budget with wasteful spending projects, often called pork. He produced a pink plastic pig and squeaked it.

And he extended his veto threat to include any bill sponsored by Republicans, saying they had conspired with Democrats to pass the budget.

On Monday, Mr. LePage is expected to veto the $6.7 billion, two-year state budget; the Legislature is returning Tuesday, when it is expected to override the veto.

Amazing! Isn't LePage afraid that he will be held responsible for the state government shutting down? Isn't he concerned that he won't be seen as bipartisan, won't be seen as someone who can get business done in the State Capitol? How can he be totally unafraid of these things, when national Republicans fear them mightily?

Lawmakers say they are exhausted and frustrated.

Poor big spending Democrats (and Republicans!). For the very first time in their political lives, someone is confronting them about their big tax and spend policies! If I ruled like a dictator over the people, confiscating their money and spending as I liked, and someone tried to stop me, I'd be exhausted and frustrated too!

“When you’re sitting there poking the yes button every 15 seconds to override 128 vetoes, it’s hard to feel like you’re contributing a lot to moving the state forward,” said State Senator Roger J. Katz, a Republican who has been an occasional LePage ally, but more often a critic. “The atmosphere here is one of depression,&r

Politico wasted no time in running an article explaining why gay marriage is better than straight marriage.

July is Straight Pride Month!


June is Gay Pride month, where gay people celebrate the ways they have sex and who they have sex with, lubricating the public discourse with the very squishy details of their favorite methods of having sex. It makes sense to me that people feel the need to expound on how oral and anal sex has made them proud. But what doesn't make sense to me is that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent month for Straight Pride. Don't heterosexuals need a dedicated time to talk about their private sexual practices in a very public way as well?
