Can anyone explain what differences there are between Bermie Madoff and John Corzine, that would account for the differences in the press coverage they are each getting? Addendum:  (DavidL) Eric, the difference between Bernie and JC (Jon Corzine) is that the former is a competent crook.   Bernie knows where the money went.   JC  does not […]

With all due respect, does anyone care who John McCain endorses? William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection As you may deduce from my quote editing, I only deem the Professor half right, this time.     Frankly  for  the record, this is the only McCain in the arena, of which I give a damn.

Columbia, NJ- I’m set to run into the city at about 3am, and am taking a rest break before doing that. It’s raining here, fairly hard, though the radar says it’ll slack off shortly.

I’ve had an interesting week traveling around in the truck. Some of it, I ended up using someone else’s truck since mine was under repair. Lower miles as a result mean lower income, I suppose, but that goes with the territory. As of this writing, I’m back in my own truck, and it seems to […]

You will recall the left was having kittens over the mere suggestion that someone might have leaked her name to the press.  There were calls for life imprisonment, etc., from the usual suspects. Yet these same people treat Julian Assange, who leaked thousands of such names […]

Dead white male, to wit George Carlin, destroys anthropogenic global warming alarmist.  Ace notes this lunacy from the Network of Lunacy, b/k/a CNN: Yes, CNN is actually pushing the Global Warming Causes Earthquakes and Volcanoes “theory.” Anyone notice that whatever Vengeance of the Goddess calamity befalls us, a “consensus scientist” informs us it’s all due […]
