Finally a True Small-Government Republican

Now that the Bushies have increased the size and scope of the government beyond FDR era proportions, Arnold Schwarzenegger has come up with a truly half-assed idea for slashing government spending:

… since Mr. Schwarzenegger took office on Nov. 17, the toilet paper in the Capitol has been switched from two-ply to one-ply, a saving of thousands of dollars over the years. "It's not anymore the two-ply," he said. "Because you know what? We're trimming. We're living within our means."

Brings a whole new meaning to squeezing the Charmin. I love Arnold, by the way. There are two Republicans in the world I respect: my dad and the Governator. But, come on, one-ply?

Look Matt, the deal is, Peggy in Finance is directly responsible for the overruns on toilet paper. Every since her kitten little princess angel funbox the third passed away, she's been hitting the jalapeno poppers food cart out by the front of the capitol.

The real loser in this situation is Peggy, and her bizarre codependency between the loss of L.P.A.F.3. (Little Princess Angel Funbox the Third) and her newfound addiction to jalapeno poppers.

It has gotten so bad, last I saw her she had paused at the food cart, and ended up going to buy charmin. Oh look, there she is now whispering something. I think I can here it. "One-ply my ass, that's 40-grit sandpaper or ..."

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to repeal a law that requires animal shelters to hold stray dogs and cats for up to six days before killing them.

Instead, there would be a three-day requirement for strays. Other animals, including birds, hamsters, potbellied pigs, rabbits, snakes and turtles, could be killed immediately.

Schwarzenegger has told the state Legislature that the changes could save local governments that operate shelters up to $14 million.

An estimated 600,000 dogs and cats are put to death each year in California, including 34,000 in Los Angeles alone.

Instead of keeping them for 3 day, keep them for the current six and sell them to Vietnamese restaurants. He'll make much more than $14m that way.
