On Facebook this morning was a post about a woman with brain cancer who got caught up in the whole Obamacare mess, lost her coverage and in the mess that ensued, died from lack of treatment.  There have been a number of things on Facebook lately that flipped my switch, this was just one.  Thus […]

I like to understand how things work and I thrive on streamlining whatever the action is to the point that I can’t improve it any further.  I’m fairly sure this must be the very definition of anal.  My dad was the same way.  He was a boat designer/builder/commercial fisherman and the work he did was […]

Weather vane mentality

Something I read this morning sparked a thought.  We know me.  That’s always dangerous and often amusing in a “can you believe it” way.  This morning’s fireworks sparkler can be attributed to an article by IowaHawk on Breitbart on same sex marriage.  First, it’s the kind of writing I love, expressing obvious common sense with humor […]

I just watch the most fascinating talk about how our tolerance for disgust determines our politics.  It’s one of those illuminating discussion, one that I will watch a number of times. This is the second really illuminating thing I’ve run into in the last two weeks.  I’m on a roll!

In my Reason 24/7 RSS feed this morning was a link to an article about Ethiopian kids getting Motorola Zoom tablets.  To keep this in perspective, these kids had NEVER seen a printed word.  EVER, as had most of the adults in the village.  In five months, with no outside instruction, the kids had not […]

Rich or poor?

Who decides if someone is rich or poor?  Is it how much you make, how much you have, how happy you are or how much you owe in relation to how much you make?  Who decides?  What’s the magic formula? I think rich versus poor is in many cases an arbitrary measure.  I don’t think […]

In my RSS feed (I use Bloglines as I’m still boycotting Google) I have over 30 hard and soft news sources.  I can get away with having this many because most don’t produce a lot of data daily.  For example, one of my favorite singers, Diana Krall, adds concert dates every couple months.  I subscribe […]

Where the news is

Over the last six months the way I get my news has changed.  I used to be a devotee of Fox, but the cancellation of Judge Napolitano’s Freedom Watch was the end of a slow change. Napolitano’s show was the one I would watch faithfully.  Fox’s cancellation signaled a shift by Fox toward a more […]

This morning I received an emailed article about the Obamas that elicited the following response. Yeah, yeah, yeah.  I wish it were a more intelligent rant, but it’s just a rant; not memorable, not pointed, just a generic rant about disrespectful communists.  That it comes from a black man isn’t even particularly notable. It wasn’t […]

Still riding the “ain’t no such thing” global warming horse

The rain can stop any time now. If it doesn’t, I’m considering ark building as a potential hobby. There’s lots going on in the global warming debate. Much of the steam has seeped out of the global warmists’ engine. Poland, among other EU eastern border countries, has told the rest of the EU to eff […]
