Did Viking raiders hire attorneys to stipulate, before each raid, that plundering English monasteries and churches would be hunky-dory?
No. The Vikings just raided and looted. They didn’t also assure their victims, “Hey, we talked to the lawyer and he said it was fine.”
Thanks at least for that, Scandinavian marauders. Because why add insult to injury?
Yet U.S. Senator Kay Hagan hired some high-priced barrister to bleat that looking the other way while her husband scooped up hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars is “appropriate.” Yep. According to senatorial spokesman Sadie Weiner: “Kay . . . had no part in helping [her husband’s company JDC] receive these grants. Her only involvement was when she made sure that a respected ethics attorney was consulted to ensure that it was appropriate. . . .”
No part! Nobody involved in distributing the boodle knew he was married to a U.S. Senator! Had no way to know!
In August 2010, Senator Kay Hagan’s husband Chip and their son founded a solar energy company, Solardyne.
Weeks later, in September, JDC Manufacturing — a company part-owned by Chip Hagan, the senator’s husband — paid $250,000 in federal “stimulus” dollars to Solardyne to install solar panels at a JDC building. Short version of preceding sentence: Mr. Hagan paid himself $250,000 with money taken from us (you, me, your neighbor, my neighbor).
Did I say “ugh”?
- end all “stimulus” taxing and “stimulus” spending;
- eject Senator Hagan from the U.S. Senate.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
