Hiding in Plain Sight for 31 years in Happy Valley
This guy Sandusky is in the same class or league as Jeffrey Dahmer or John Gacy. Dahmer and Gacy’s victims were a little older, but the pattern is pretty much the same. So far there is no evidence that Sandusky dispatched any of his victims, but because the authorities are having a difficult time finding Victim #2 who was approximately 10 years old at the | Read More »
OWS, “what are we fighting for?”.
This protest thing about the evils of capitalism has been going on since, well… capitalism. Properly defined as the production of goods and services through the ownership of private property, capitalism, is a relatively new concept in the history of mankind, but has produced the greatest results and prosperity of any society or economy that has existed since the Cro-Magnon man fought with the dinosaurs. | Read More »
How come Republicans get better results?
The Florida legislature was controlled by Democrats from the end of the Civil War (1867) until 1995. Since 1995, the GOP has kept and built majorities in both the house and the senate in the Florida legislature. From the mid to late 80’s and into the early 1990’s, we had a serious, if not crisis stage violent crime problem. One of the main reasons for | Read More »
This is a good word it means: needless repetition of an idea, especially in words other than those of the immediate context, without imparting additional force or clearness Barack Hoover Obama and his cheerleaders on the left repeat this mantra over and over, more taxes on millionaires and billionaires. But what about clearness: In other words, if you favor raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires | Read More »

Meaningless poll number two
A poll that says that only 15% of respondents approve of the job Congress is doing is fairly meaningless. How many people reading this post approve of the job Maxine Waters is doing? Probably zero. However, in Maxine’s District, she won re-election in 2010 with 79% of the vote. Nancy Pelosi had a national approval rating in 2010 of 16%, she won re-election in her | Read More »
Is the left totally losing it, over the tea party or is it just my imagination?
Typically, despots, tyrants, dictators and groups that seek to take power over others through force need to have an evil enemy or target group that is the reason for all the ills of their current society. Capitalists have perennially been a favorite target group. Adolf Hitler used the communists and the Jews as the groups that were causing all of the hardships that the German | Read More »

Meaningless poll number one
A poll saying 70% in favor of a tax hike on people who earn 200K or more per year is meaningless. First, I would think that 95% of respondents would be in favor because less than 5% of tax returns have earned income more than 200K. Anyone is in favor of tax increase on someone else. If you don’t think that the tax increase is | Read More »
Oh, please not more shovel ready jobs again
The (D)s are saying that the President needs to propose something really big to get people back to work. Excuse me, but isn’t 5 trillion a pretty big stimulus? Over the last 3 years the Fed has pumped about 2 trillion of paper money into the system, there was 700 B in TARP, there was 874B in ARRA, and the (D)’s also increased fed spending | Read More »
