OK, I’m back. Well, really I was back yesterday, but because my hours were so screwy Friday and Saturday because of the Fostoria Ohio trip, I really wasn’t fully back into it, all day on Sunday, and frankly, I’m still not hitting on all holes yet.  Essentially, yesterday was a jet lag day, where I […]

when I see you piling on with the foaming liberals like Think Progress on this little tidbit, without bothering to even to TRY to balance your slam by issuing comment on Obama’s obvious, flaming and flagrant lack of understanding on that issue, you can add that to the long list of reasons I’ve already offered as to why you’ve lost all credible claim to the title of “Moderate”, and you’re lumped in with the foamers.

Not that it ever amounted to much anyway, but Fox Business blog notes that the gas tax holiday went bye bye, before it ever got going. And let’s be honest, here, 18.4 cents at the pump doesn’t even scratch the surface of the tax take going on, here. Of course, that news shows up just […]

Personally, I thought the case fairly well cut and dried, given both the language and the cultural context in which that language was written. The problem, here […]
