Obama’s press secretary is on record saying Congress is afraid of the NRA.  Silliness.  It’s we’re the government and we’re here to help trying to sway public opinion and walk on our freedoms. It’s time we began recognizing and decrying this for what it is. It isn’t “control the masses”, though it could be. It […]

Daily Rant

Apparently Bernie Sanders is advocating a free bachelor’s degree for all and someone on Laissez Faire Capitalism posted a mocking cartoon.  I took exception to Bernie Sanders’ socialistic thinking and posted this: This is so interesting. It speaks to a complete failure to understand economics and the mechanics of supply and demand. The question regarding […]

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!

ken n 1: range of what one can know or understand; “beyond my ken” [syn: cognizance] 2: the range of vision; “out of sight of land” [syn: sight] For some reason beyond my current ken, I expected more from SCOTUS today on their ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Healthcare act.  To say I’m […]

Favorite news sources

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 […]

The USPS is facing big problems.  They can’t afford to meet their pension obligations, a problem which is the result of poor management (nobody can do poor management quite like the government), union manipulation (the root of the pension problem in the first place) and a really poor business model.  So, what to do, what […]

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 […]

Have you had days when you didn’t feel particularly nice?  I think we all do. Now that I’m older, I generally try to rein in the chaos-generating waves, where in the past I would have let my pencil fly.  So, here is the kinder, gentler take on Sandra Fluke and the argument she’s put forth. […]
