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 »
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 »
An Open Letter to Mitt Romney
Dear Mitt, With all due respect, you are not my favorite candidate. But you were able to obliterate the competition using negative TV ads. So while you are not my favorite nominee, you know how to run TV ads very effectively. Your presenting Obama’s failed green energy program by hosting a press conference outside Solyndra while David Axelrod is getting his butt handed to him | Read More »
Mitch McConnell keeps pushing his face into opponent’s fists – Part 2. (Or: Winners never quit, Losers quit before they start)
Let me be real clear, and blunt. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is a LOSER! Yesterday, I wrote about his being on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, about as friendly a Sunday Morning talk show there is, and Senator Mitch McConnell proved to all watching what a complete blithering idiot he is. I went on to say that his performance on FNS proved that | Read More »
Mitch MCConnell keeps pushing his face into his opponent’s fists!
I watched with horror the alleged “leader” of the GOP in the Senate on Fox News Sunday, Senator Mitch McConnell. I now understand why the Senate GOP is so adrift. Mitch McConnell was not on Meet the Press, or Face the Nation where he would have a hostile liberal talking head drill him. No, he had Chris Wallace. Mr. Wallace can direct tough questions to | Read More »
A fantastic piece on the Wisconsin Recall vote
I wish I could write like Eric, Moe, or Repairman Jack. But alas, I am a mere mortal…LOL! And I will always find a typo or grammatical error AFTER I post my piece. I live in Wisconsin, and I must say that it feels like a HUGE weight has been lifted off my (and every Scott Walker supporters) shoulder. In many ways it did feel | Read More »
Really? Romney could win?
As I has stated in several of my posts, I am no fan of Romney. Would he be better than Obama, of course, and twice on Sundays! But I just read a article about how the GOP is just realizing that Romney could indeed win. Wow! Really? The GOP just got the memo? Did they just stick their heads out from their bunker and come | Read More »
