Breaking News!

This just in – President Bush is “puzzled” Oh yeah, that’s something new.  Let’s see what the story has to say next… Bush was not “open and forthright on Iraq” and was slow in his response to Katrina.  Damn, FoxNews is on their game today!  These are some awesome scoops!  In case you haven’t noticed, […]

Big oil subsidies

I received some rather heated emails in response to a post I made on a wind energy forum.   In the post, I gave my response to a (rather lengthy) post calling for government mandated alternative energy goals, subsidies for alternative energy, mandatory replacement projects, and in general complaining that their pet project/business wasn’t being paid for with tax money […]

Refuge Vs Park

This ticked me off.  In part, it says: “Without adequate funding, we are jeopardizing some of the world’s most spectacular wildlife and wild lands,” said Evan Hirsche, president of the National Wildlife Refuge Association and chairman of the Cooperative Alliance for Refuge Enhancement. Pull your taxpayer funded head out of your ass Evan.  It’s a […]

Better late than never

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.  Especially regarding news stories and commenting about them….  Regarding the FLDS polygamy case, it was just yesterday I said “the state has based their entire case on anonymous “calls” that may be a hoax.”   I then listed the many Constitutional issues that I saw with the case, and related […]

Texas screwed up

I haven’t said anything about the Texas state raid of the “polygamist compound” but I read a story tonight on FoxNews that kinda ticks me off.  When I get ticked off I need to say something about it, so here goes…. The story is about a supposedly underaged girl who gave birth while in state […]

Can you say stagflation?

It was interesting watching the stock market go into a steep sell-off today after the Fed meeting minutes were released.  For some reason, most people are still underestimating the severity of the problems in the economy, and they’re stunned when they see something that doesn’t fit into the Goldilocks scenario they’re anticipating. Here’s how CNN phrased […]

Paper money and the blind

According to a story on CNN today, the “U.S. Treasury Department is violating the law by failing to design and issue currency that is readily distinguishable to blind and visually impaired people.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve bought newspapers and junk food from blind people and we’ve never had any problems.  Think of […]

Hurricanes and Global Warming

Anyone seen this news today?  Here’s a few choice quotes from an AP story:  Global warming isn’t to blame for the recent jump in hurricanes in the Atlantic, concludes a study by a prominent federal scientist whose position has shifted on the subject. Not only that, warmer temperatures will actually reduce the number of hurricanes […]

The shrinkable dollar

I read a good article today in the NY Times.  Here’s the opening paragraph: If the United States were any other country, these would surely be days of panic and austerity in Washington. With debts spiraling higher, a trade deficit exceeding $700 billion a year, and its currency plunging for years, the government would be […]

57 States

57 States  Obama claims he’s visited 57 states….  This should live on at least as long as Hillary’s sniper fire incident and Quail’s potato gaffe.  🙂 gk
