Sloatsbburg, NY–  I’m making the last 500 or so miles today, of a week that’s seen me crossing a dozen or more state lines, and running nearly 3000 miles, from the midwest to New Jersey. A productive week.  I also managed to get my internet connectivity working, finally. The snow has started.  This pic was […]

Kathleen McCaffrey ponders liberal myth and Organize Wall Street peeves, one and the same, from Legal Insurrection: I also think that a lot of people in favor of OWS are mourning the death of a dream. I can sympathize with that. A lot of the rhetoric I heard while growing up in the 1990s was […]

Utica, NY– I’m back.  In more ways than one. I spent the weekend here with my wife of 22 years, and had a wonderful time. Odd, that this was one of the first places I had to come to unload freight. It’s not as nice a place to be, as it was over the weekend. […]

Liberty Township, PA– Yes, I’m still here. The roads around here opened up last night,  but in all the excitement of the floods and road closings and such I must have kicked up a bit of road junk. I’ve got an issue with a brake slack adjuster in one wheel. I’m waiting to get fixed […]

How dumb is Dumbo, from Monty Pelerin, American Thinker: Two hypotheses are often cited to explain why things have gotten so much worse: Obama is incompetent. Obama knows what he is doing and is deliberately destroying the country. These hypotheses are not mutually exclusive.  Evidence is consistent with either or a combination of both.  The […]

Denver, PA– Hot here today. My truck’s info center advises me it’s 90degrees out here in the parking lot. Like I needed that info, thanks very much, Truck. From here to Carlisle, PA, I think. UNEXPECTEDLY? There’s that word again in today’s headlines. In a report, the U.S. Department of Labor said the number of […]

Nice Deb on Harry Alford: Harry Alford is the president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, and he’s a lot of fun to listen to. (You may remember his acrimonious confrontation with Barbara Boxer, at a Senate Hearing in 2009. Alford has nothing good to say about Obama, (who he calls a […]

Hell no to ethanol, from Matt Kibbe, Forbes: [S]ubsidizing blending ethanol into gasoline is fiscally indefensible. If the current subsidy is extended for five years, the Federal Treasury would pay oil companies at least $31 billion to use 69 billion gallons of corn ethanol that the Federal Renewable Fuels Standard already requires them to use.

Algore’s mistake, Debra Saunders, RCP: You Can Stop Paying for Al Gore’s Mistake In Greece earlier this month, Al Gore made a startling admission: “First-generation ethanol, I think, was a mistake.” Unfortunately, Americans have Gore to thank for ethanol subsidies. In 1994, then-Vice President Gore ended a 50-50 tie in the Senate by voting in […]

TSA stuck on stupid, TSA chief John Pistole, from CNN: Well, I think the Israeli model, which a number of people have talked about, uses intelligence in a different way, profiling. And then if in terms of a pat-down, if they suspect you of something, you receive a very thorough pat-down there. That is top-notch […]

Starting to catch up on my reading. As it has been in the past, James Joyner’s Outside The Beltway is among my first stops: John Hawkins‘ unscientific survey of conservative bloggers on The 25 Worst Figures In American History is revealing. Aside from Richard Nixon and a couple of traitors and assassins, the list is […]

Welcome to the better late than never scrambled Scramble. It is not the style stupid, Carol E. Lee, Politico: People who have worked closely with Obama say he doesn’t think like a bureaucrat, is far more interested in changing the way Washington works than in understanding its machinations and isn’t excited by the kind of gears-of-government […]

Schooling the Professor, Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit: THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER is pushing an Obama cheating scandal story. Bah.  When was the last time they got one of these things right? Granted the Enquirer has developed a knack for finding titillating stories the MSM would just rather ignore, but it is simply not a scandal for a […]

Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” -Maurice Strong, Head of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro “Given the total, absolute, and final disappearance of Homo Sapiens, then , not […]
