Today I’m just west of Syracuse New York waiting to be unloaded. From here, I’ll run back over to Rochester grab a load headed for Pennsylvania or possibly down to the city.


Raining in mid thirties around here just now. All of these springtime hopefulness has gone for the moment, and there is a gloom settling over about everything. At least the truck doesn’t need washing for the moment. The rain seems to be taking care of that.

Pretty much same stuff different day. Sometimes days develop that way. Welcome to my world.

I note with interest that the United Nations officials are saying that we should be populate the planet as quickly as possible. I noticed that they don’t offer themselves up as a sacrifice toward that goal. With that in mind, I offer a solution. Nuke Turtle Bay. For those who don’t remember, that’s where the United Nations building is. I’ve often considered that that would be a large stroke for the cause of peace as well.

It’s always amused me to see the American Left who wants to see the United Nations running everything, is so adamantly opposed to the very existence of Israel. The reality is, the creation of Israel was the first action that the United Nations ever undertook. Funny how they seem to miss that connection.

The reality of the situation is that following that noble action, the United Nations has done more to enable the enemies of peace than it has to create peace. Often inadvertently, I will more than grant. But that’s the reality of it.

I see an interesting comment by former veep Dick Cheney..

I vacillate between the various   I’ve heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama’s doing,”

Say what you will about him, the man still has a firm grasp on reality.

Another person that the left  will be going to the spastics about pretty quickly will be Carly Fiorina. Why? Because she apparently has a firm grasp on reality as well. She came out with a statement yesterday that the liberal environmental leftists in California are the blame for the drought out there. She’s right of course, where is going to lie her problem with the left.

She’s also not the first one to make such statements. But she’s the only one of the presidential candidates that I have seen say such things. I’m not quite sure what kind of a presidential candidate she’s going to make, but at least she’s got a grip on reality. And frankly, it’s an open question how that’s going to play with the establishment GOP. Let’s just say she’s got me mildly interested.

I see Rand Paul made his presidential announcement yesterday, supporters put it up on youtube, who promptly pulled it down. I can’t imagine that that wasn’t for political reasons regardless of the excuse they give for the action.

His first problem of course is going to be Ted Cruz. Frankly, I will take either one of those two as a vest improvement over most of the rest of the field. Put the two of them out of ticket and I think it would be unbeatable. Thing is, I think the establishment GOP knows it too. Whether or not they’ll be smart enough to move in that direction is an open question, but frankly I’m not hopeful. Will probably end up with another Romney or Bush candidacy, and as a direct consequence, 8 years of Hillary Clinton.

The reality is if the GOP doesn’t come up with a genuine conservative, someone who is willing to fight for the Constitution and coughing as the way they are, and take back the country from those who have run it into the ground these last eight years, they’re not going to go anywhere. That’s the reality.
