Hope has died, from Ben White, Politico: President Barack Obama is heading into his reelection campaign with a flagging economy that appears incapable of producing the sustained job growth needed to push unemployment below crisis levels.

Harrisburg, PA– As this is written, I’m at the TA in Harrisburg. I was supposed to be over by Albany by this time, but an equipment failure…. (flat tire) lost me four hours of drive time.  When things go mostly right, it’s easy to bitch about the small stuff. When there’s a bigtime fail… well, […]

Just how dumb is Barack Obama, American Conservative: I realize I’m just your average Joe Schmo, but I do know the difference between liability insurance and collision insurance. I also know that when another driver hits my car from behind, that driver is responsible for the repairs. Now honestly if Obama doesn’t know the difference […]

I have been saying for years now that if the terrorists ever wanted to shut down Washington DC, all they would have to do is make it snow.  2in. or so oughta do it.  The people in and around Washington DC are incapable of dealing with what  mother nature dishes out, or even identify it, […]

I’m sitting on a bus on I-90 westbound just coning into Buffalo as I write this. I must say these Greyhound busses are amazing. 110volt power, Wi-Fi and the thing rides like my Buick.
