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 »
And now for something completely different
Okay, we lost, we’re screwed as a Nation. The constitution will soon be a very old roll of toilet paper. And as far as I am concerned, we have north America’s version of Hugo Chavez. While I am foreseeing the future, who knows if Obama, by executive order will abolish the 2016 Presidential elections and make himself Supreme Leader? At least 50 percent of this | Read More »
ORCA of Biblical Proportions
We can now add ORCA to the list of Old Testament tribulations; hoards of locust, raining frogs, eldest male child dying in the night, the earthly flood (though God said he would never do that again, but I digress). What is happening to this country seems to be of Biblical proportions. I am not a biblical scholar, nor do I claim to be one. But | Read More »
The oncoming storm called Obama
Whatever the reason, whomever’s fault it is, we lost. And we lost big. We are a divided country that is not 47%/47%, but more like 50%/50%. Here is what we have to look forward to in the next four years: 1. Obama leading by decree or policy and the Congress not being able to do anything about it. 2. Obama completely embracing the UN mandates; | Read More »
My Mid-Freak-Out Epiphany
I really didn’t expect it to be this close. I expected it to be like 1980; Reagan vs. Carter. I really did. Which means, to my shock, the polls were pretty spot on. Thankfully, I live in a ranch home, so there is no ledge for me to throw myself off of…anyhow, my epiphany. If the polls are correct as they seem to be, Romney | Read More »
On November 6th, the mainstream media is dead
You don’t know it yet, but your days are numbered. You have until November 6th when you will draw your last desperate gasp of air. Your heart will begin to race as it feverishly fights to find more oxygen so it can continue to beat. But there will be no more. You, as an industry are done. ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, New York | Read More »
What I learned from last night’s debate
As my teenage stepdaughter says to me when she does not like what she hears,”Oh My God!” In feigned desperation. My desperation was not feigned, it was real, It was adult. I was listening to the debate as I was driving home in my beat-up KIA, after a particularly important, yet mind-numbing mircobiology class, after having worked all day. Ryan is a wonk, an econ-geek. | Read More »
An Open Letter to Rodger Goodell
Who am I kidding, as if you care? You clearly don’t care about the “Integrity of the Game.” Don’t even go there. Right now your precious meme, “Integrity of the Game” is in a flaming heap! You don’t care about the safety of the players. And what is most troubling, it is clear that you don’t care about the season. What do you care about | Read More »
