Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Raise gas or ice prices more than 10% during a hurricane? Chris Christie will go after you with the full power of the law at his back.
But afterwards? Afterwards he'll talk about raising taxes, because there's no such thing as price gouging when government needs money.
Homeowners in towns hit hard by Hurricane Sandy could be in for an unpleasant surprise on their property tax bills.
Gov. Chris Christie said today that he expects property taxes to go up in towns that need extensive rebuilding.
"They're probably going to have higher taxes," said Christie. "It's got to be paid for. This goes back to the old magic money tree. There's no magic money tree."
C'mon Christie! Your new bestest buddy Barry would beg to differ. He promised his peeps a magic money tree. They voted for a magic money tree. You can't be dissing Prez BO! That's like racist or something.
Yeah, one hug from Dear Leader is all it took to turn Governor Awesome into Robby RINO, tax hiker extraordinaire. Remember that tax cut Christie promised us earlier this year? Kiss it goodbye.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he isn't sure whether he'll still pursue a tax cut that was the centerprice of his economic strategy because Hurricane Sandy may have hurt state revenue in October and November.
Government's first reaction to any crisis is universally predictable — raise taxes. A private business can't pass their extraordinary costs onto consumers, that's price gouging. That's illegal. But there's no law against government passing along its costs. Nosirree! Government can rape the taxpayer with impunity. Because they have no decency, and no accountability, and there's nothing we can do about it anyway.
Maybe I shoulda voted for Corzine. At least he was been upfront about his intention to screw me over.
And Gator Doug wonders if Christie is on a path to metamorphosis into a full-blown Democrat. Well maybe, that'd be one way to freeze Cory Booker out of challenging him next year.
