Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

Well, the Occupy Wall Street movement, AKA Poopstock, sure is making a splash. Perhaps “splash” isn’t the best term, from the looks of things, they could all use a splash in a bathtub with a bar of soap. Reports on the ground indicate things are getting pretty ripe. But the commies don’t seem to mind. […]

Indianapolis, IN–I’m still at Indy. When I got done writing yesterday’s Ramble, I did my usual pre-trip inspection of my truck and found that I had oil coming from one wheel seal. This is a possibly dangerous situation, with fire or possibly a lack of braking power being the upshot. At the very least it […]

I have for a long time found Ann Coulter fascinating. Occasionally wrong, mostly correct.  I have several of her books on my shelves here.  I even carry one in the truck that I haven’t finished reading.  That said, it fascinates me that  Coulter who had nothing but derision for John McCain, thinks that Mitt Romney […]

Buffalo, NY– I’m at the Erie County Medical Center, dropping off some furniture that I picked up at Elkhart IN. A nice little stretch of the legs. I’ll be back at the yard in a few hours and ready for my next adventure. This trip out west is likely a rare event, but I must […]

I note with some degree of interest with a resurgency  of Newt Gingrich in the early polling for Iowa.  There seems a good deal of objection to his showing up, particularly among the press who like Rick Perry and Herman Cain before him (and Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin before him… ) is now the […]

Karen, the Lonely Conservative, passes on this from the  Organize Wall Street scum: Democrats in Congress have criticized NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for shutting down the OWS encampment at Zuccotti Park. Apparently, that means they support this guy, who oddly signs autographs while threatening to burn New York City to the ground and bomb Macy’s. […]

The Playboy Bunny better known as Gloria Steinem defending B.J. Clinton: “The truth is that even if the allegations are true, the President is not guilty of sexual harassment. He is accused of having made a gross, dumb and reckless pass at [Kathleen Willey] during a low point in her life. She pushed him away, […]

Jessup,MD– I’m here getting ready to grab a load bound for Syracuse, and then head home. I’ll be there by morning. Raining off and on across the northeast today. My poor truck doesn’t look quite so flashy with the much from the wet streets all over it again. That’s OK, I’ll wash it again once […]

Conklin, NY– I’m just south of Binghamton, NY. From where I’ll run up to Rochester, grab a load and be in Brooklyn by the time you get up. Raining a bit today, which is about what I figured. After all, I spent the last several days cleaning and preening the truck. Looks pretty good.  The […]

Janeane Garofalo is a stupid twit, via Real Clear Politics: “Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same. “People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman […]

Paul Krugman growls, from New York Times: Back in 1980, just as America was making its political turn to the right, Milton Friedman lent his voice to the change with the famous TV series “Free to Choose.” In episode after episode, the genial economist identified laissez-faire economics with personal choice and empowerment, an upbeat vision […]
