First order of business: The new truck. I’m a little short on pics of it just now, but if the light behaves itself tomorrow night, I’ll fire off a series. For now; It’s a Buick Rainer. It’s kinda like the Chevy Trailblazer, except they’ve added a lot of quieting to this; It’s without question the […]

The Gaineville Times, and others,  smears our military:  It comes down to a question of trust. For the most part, Americans trust the U.S. military. The question is, why doesn’t the military trust us? Two incidents in our overseas conflicts, and the Pentagon’s spin of each, have us wondering. First came Pfc. Jessica Lynch, the West […]

* Yes, I got the new truck, and yes that’s why I wasn’t writing, last night. Pictures later. The light was terrible, today. Basically, this new one isn’t nearly as flashy as the old one.  Until you get inside. * I didn’t participate in the caption contest at OTB, just recently, because the picture reminded […]

Imus called some nice, successful college student-athletes prostitutes. That was ugly and unseemly. Limbaugh, via Shanklin, suggested that a longtime public figure with a criminal past and presidential aspirations was inarticulate. That’s neither beyond the pale nor even untrue. James Joyner, Outside the Beltway  Much, way too much, has been written about the Rush Limbaugh/Paul […]

Richard Gere denounces ‘Moral Police’ Richard Gere denounced a small right-wing minority in India whose complaints and protests led to a judge issuing an arrest warrant against the Hollywood star for violating the country’s strict public obscenity laws. Gere is little more that Micheal Moore on diet pills.  An apology would be in order.   Then […]

Exxon Mobil Corp. announced record first quarter profits.  Ok. In response, Senator Bob Casey, (D-PA) introduced a bill to tax windfall profits.   Casey  somehow “hopes will curtail rising gasoline prices.” How?   On what planet, if any, did Casey study economics.  What economic model, if any, says that providing a disincentives to produce a commodity will […]

Regards Rosie O’Donnell leaving “The View”; First of all, this is hardly an issue of national import, nor was it unpredictable. So, perhaps the press is making more out of this than is warranted. That said, however, there’s a pattern here worth noting: Joyner comments, the other day: Since I’ve watched maybe 15 minutes of […]

Sister Toldjah did what I could not bear to do, watch eight mental midgets pontificate in presidential debate. Best I can make out the moderator, Brian Wilson, asked all the canidates who many supported Dennis Kucinich bill to impeach Vice President Richard Cheney.   Aside from Cleveland moonbat, none did. The Sister seemed impressed with Wilson, calling  him Fox-like.  […]
