Blood Simple Like The Natives
“This damned burg’s getting me. If I don’t get away soon I’ll be going blood-simple like the natives.” – The Continental OP Red Harvest Dashiell Hammett It was last September, two months before Nancy Pelosi was blessedly silenced as House Speaker. Senator Jim Webb met President Barack Obama. They ended up talking healthcare reform. Senator Webb felt concerned. President “This time they’ve got me” was | Read More »
Some people just don’t get it. At all.
I frequently glance at Google News headlines, just to get a flavor for what’s going on. No depth, but it’s a good quick scan to spot where things are headed by the flow of the headlines. Yesterday I hit the poster child page for what is wrong in our country. A while back there was book published called “All I Really Need to Know I | Read More »
Krugman: “We’re doomed.”
The Trillion Dollar President ran on his “yes we can” slogan, but, it turns out, a former State Senator and a part-time U.S. Senator who campaigned instead of legislating may be able to convince people he can, but, well there is this: even Paul Krugman believes he can’t. Krugman, in the NYT, writes “We’re doomed.” Yes, the Krugman piece is about the Trillion Dollar President, | Read More »

The letter was a response to one written by Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA7) (a member of the Ways and Means Committee), expressing his concern for the | Read More »
Imagine there’s no Democrats. It’s easy if you try…
Did you ever notice how Democrats like to vilify guns, religion, and corporations for political gain? Since when have any of these things ever been responsible for harming anyone? It’s like those people in Scranton, always say, “Religion doesn’t kill people. People kill people.” I suggest Democrats get a clue and focus on the real problems, which are those aspects of human nature that leads | Read More »
Obama Tells Us What He Won’t Do
From an AP wire story, we hear that Senator Obama believes the US economy is in recession. If you’re in business or you follow business, your response is likely to be “No [excrement], Sherlock.” What frustrates me no end, however, are statements like these, which are being spun as His Highness’ “most definitive” statements yet on the economy: “I have little doubt that we’ve moved | Read More »
