Isn't it funny, how after stealing all the headlines for months, braying about the heavy hand of government, the Tea Party faction of the Republican Party had nothing to say about Edward Snowden's  revelations that the federal government of the U.S.A. vacuums up each, every and all communication that Americans make via the Internet? Is it possible that this was too heavy for them to resist?

I've come to realize that things, events, life itself, do not get worse as time goes by. They get heavier. There was a time, when candidate Barack Obama generated web sites like the one above — remember it? It was called Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle.

Nowadays, it would probably be called The President is Busier Than You Thought Possible. There's a movie called Les Girls, in which the three main characters, who are in a sort of business dispute/two guys fighting over the girl, are seated in a cafe. The waiter comes to take their orders. What would they like?

Man # 1: "Tea?"
Man # 2: "Champagne!"
The woman: "An aspirin."
