List of Obama’s Executive Actions on Gun Control

I looked around a few days ago when Obama announced his “Executive Actions” on the subject of gun violence, but I didn’t see anything comprehensive at the time.  Of course the media also widely reported them- incorrectly – as “Executive Orders”, which they are not. I happened to stumble across the complete list earlier tonight, […]

Fiscal Insanity

Ran across this post in today’s Daily Reckoning. Those of you who like to think we can go on printing money without consequences should read – not just this article, but basically everything they publish.  I wouldn’t call it “doomsday” stuff, but predicting financial collapse for those who think money can be summoned into existence […]

AT&T Still Sucks

Wow, 4 times tonight my AT&T U-Verse service has crashed for 5 to 10 minutes at a time.  No TV.  No Internet. All the TV’s will freeze up and and Internet service drops. Wired and wireless. No light flickers, nothing else in the house is affected, just AT&T U-Verse quits. I reported this to AT&T […]

Rombama? Robama? Obamney?

Rombama? Robama? Obamney?  I don’t know what name will ultimately be used for this seemingly inevitable putridity of a choice, but it will suck.  Because there is no real choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Except for a few of the “I’m more Christian than Christ” stupidities that all Republicans evidently have to parrot, […]

Funny Status Messages

I’ve decided to start a new category of posts for status messages.  Basically things I see that would be funny as a status message on Facebook.  Some of these I’ve used, other’s I’d like to use but for various reasons – such as I don’t want kids to see, or so as to not offend […]

Another Mitt Romney Flip-Flop

Gail Collins had a good piece i the NY Times the other day, titled The Bad News is Good News about another Romney flip-flop.  Last week Romney said: “The idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception within a relationship between a man and a woman, husband and wife, I’m not going there.” Except […]

Buffett’s view on gold

I posted this last April, as I heard lot’s of people taking about a bubble in gold, and how gold “doesn’t provide a dividend” and how gold “doesn’t make a profit”.   After reading Warren Buffett’s annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders today, I felt compelled to update the numbers, as Buffett dissed gold pretty bad. […]

Knology Pricing

Transcript of a chat session I had with Knology while trying to find out the actual price after I received a very enticing offer in the mail today.  This isn’t funny, or in anyway unique – I just thought it offered some insight into the way these cable companies think we’re stupid. They ended up […]

Flip Flop Mitt

I ran across a free app in the Android market called Flip-Flop Mitt.  I was actually looking for some documentation on his hold-my-finger-in-the-air-and-see-what-my-position-should-be-today policies when I saw it.  Not bad, but it asks the same 8 questions each time you play. Anyway, I found a few sites that document a few of Mitt Romney’s many […]

Protester of the Year

It would take me many pages to chronicle my thoughts on this – almost as many pages as TIME took to explain their choice. Suffice it to say that I think there’s a huge difference between the Arab Spring protests and the “I want free shit and I want it now” protests in the US. […]
