"That's What You Get" Blog 

Well, Thanksgiving is upon us, and in the spirit of collective celebration of what's good in us and for national healing, I was thinking of an idea. It would be a sub-blog or annex-blog--linked from the AmCop sidebar--which would be devoted to celebrating the misery of those people in red states who have voted against the interests of themselves, their friends and families, their communities, and the nation.

My idea is that readers could send me links to stories (whenever you come across them) about bad things happening to red states that are the result of (or at least connected to) policy decisions of the Bush administration. Topics could include:

--Lost jobs; factory/plant closings; termination of unemployment and other work-related benefits.

--No health care, loss of health care, people being fucked over by insurance companies.

--The decline of public schools.

--The poisoning of communities and public lands by corporations who pollute the environment.

--Unfair tax burdens (e.g. sales taxes, payroll taxes) being placed on working people.

--Shitty life in general that just seems to get more shitty.

I was also thinking of possible names for the blog. Some possibilities:

Sorry, Fuckers!

The Public Gets What the Public Wants

Count Yer Blessings

If You Don't Like the Taste of Shit, Why Did You Choose to Eat the Shit?

You Stupid, Stupid Dipshits

Love It or Leave It!

So, what do you all think? Any other suggestions/preferences for a name? Comments on the general concept?

Happy Thanksgiving!
