When will it be enough?
Recently, a Russian fighter buzzed our US Naval Destroyer, the Donald Cook. Not once, not twice, but from reports that I read 12 times, which took about 90 minutes! They passed at a level of 500 feet and 1,000 feet off the ships beam. The Pentagon called the 90 minutes of Russian flying fun, “unprofessional.” Strong. Word. There once was a Naval code that if | Read More »
So Big Sis is gone! Careful what you wish for…
So, the biggest of big, “Big Sis” is gone as head of the DHS. Careful what you wish for. Obama most likely is going to pick someone that is even more of a nightmare than Big Sis. Another “poke in the eye” to the GOP. Something else to note: I find it funny (not as in “HA HA,” but as in this could be interesting) | Read More »
RIP James Gandolfini
James Gandolfini, star of the hit HBO show, “The Sopranos” has died of an apparent heart attack while in Italy. He was 51. He was a ardent supporter of American Veterans, hosting two HBO specials; “Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq,” and, “Wartorn: 1861-2010.” Wartorn is a documentary on PTSD. But he will be best known as the head of the New Jersey crime family, | Read More »
An open letter to Mitt Romney’s “Rejoining the National Dialogue.”
Don’t. Really. PLEASE. DON’T. You kinda sucked, err, “underperformed” in every way imaginable when you had hundreds of millions of dollars to “National Dialogue” with the country. What on God’s-Green-Earth makes you think we want to hear from you again, when most of us didn’t like you all that much the first time? This from one of your luke-warm supporters! Funny, is it just me, | Read More »
2014: When will the Federal Government dump Federal Employee’s into Obamacare?
According to FedScope, as of 2012, there are just over 2.1 million federal employees. With 2014 just over six months away, one has to ask themselves when Obama is going to dump the federal employees that he oversees (if you could call it that) into Obamacare? Like the scene from the classic movie “Jaws” where the mayor begs people to go into the water to | Read More »
DOJ, IRS spying on Americans, they are the least of our problems*
* I admit that the IRS, DOJ, OSHA, and many more government entities can really ruin a person’s life. However there are a few other entities that are only too happy to hand over their data and analytics to the Government. Way. Too. Happy. They are Google and Amazon. I think we can add Walmart to. They have been getting very comfortable with the Government | Read More »
An open letter to Reince Priebus, Karl Rove, and the establishment RNC
It is with all due respect that I write this open letter to Mr. Priebus, and Mr. Rove; I submit that you are both insane. Mr. Priebus, I am from Wisconsin, and could not be prouder that you are the head of the RNC. That said, you have not learned from history. This incessant need to promote the “first looser” aka second place runner up | Read More »
Obamacare, Taxes, and the Law of Unintended Consequences
I was having breakfast with my Brother this past Saturday. He is a small business owner, (and a very smart dude in general). He has more than 50 employees. I was asking him what he is going to do to mitigate Obamacare. He told me that he was going to make them all independent contractors. That started me thinking. If he makes everyone an independent | Read More »
Let’s get this party started!
Since Georgia’s Senator Saxby Chambliss is not going to run, I move that Red State’s own Erick Erickson runs to be Georgia’s next Senator (and a damn sight better than Chambliss)! So let me say it here first, Senator Erick Eickson! Has a nice ring to it. All in favor…?
TIME TO BAN ALCOHOL NOW!
You think I am kidding? This from the CDC: “Every day, almost 30 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 48 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $51 billion.” The CDC breaks it down like only the CDC can: In 2010, 10,228 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving | Read More »
