Congress Fails to Pass an Extension of Jobless Aid

Some of the heartless Republicans said that they opposed this extension because it would "increase the deficit" Doesn't every paycheck to members of Congress increase the deficit?

House and Senate in Deal on Financial System Reform

Mostly good but many proposed reforms watered down. For example, auto dealers were exempted from regulation of auto loans by the Consumer Protection Bureau. Well, we can certainly trust auto dealers to give their customers a fair deal.

A personal note - mainly for my kids to see. I'm being recruited to play basketball!
A basketball friend has suggested to a coach that I might play in a 3 on 3 tournament that has age brackets. There could be a spot for me in the over 80 bracket. I accused my friend of setting me up, probably telling the coach that I'm 6 ft 6 and can dunk with each hand. He replied that he did not say this but just told the coach that I'm a white Allen Iverson.

Anyhow, if the team in this bracket wins and has to travel there will be no problem enforcing a curfew.
