Westbury, Long Island, NY– A frequent stop for me… dropping off some drinks to the thirsty club shoppers. Nearly 80 here… you’d not know it was fall. Today, I’m going to do a one subject Ramble.   Some observations on the GOP races and faces: Romney:Certainly the favorite of the GOP establishment. That alone, given […]

York,PA in the midst of a really wild thunderstorm…– I brought a load here from the Adirondacks, and will be on my home turf, tomorrow. I’m looking forward to this weekend; it’s been a particularly trying week… several repairs. Actually, I’ve been quite road-repair free until this week. A radiator hose, two tires, a welding […]

Westbury, Long Island,NY– Took a load to Carlisle, PA last night, and then another from there to Long Island, today. I’ll be heading west shortly. Hey, Billy… As always your comments on Krugman are spot on, and all the more so for their cut to the chase-briefness. Paul Krugman is a stark moron, Nobel Prize […]

Billy Hollis at Q&O today: McQ hit these pompous fools when they first popped their heads up. I was too busy to chime in then, but the more I’ve watched this whole “No Labels” thing, the funnier it gets. George Will does a pretty good job today of shredding some of their sillier assertions: Although […]

Turds of Wisdom, from Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal: But a scorched-earth policy doesn’t make sense for the Obama White House. Independents voted Republican last month by a 59% to 38% margin not because they thought Mr. Obama too civil, his course too centrist, and his bipartisanship too energetic. In fact, they were sick of […]

Doug Mataconis over at OTB, is commenting on the Anti-Palin backlash going on, and seems to me quite willing to be part of that backlash. I’ve already made note since the elections of reports of growing concern about Palin inside the GOP, as well as comments by the likes of Karl Rove that Palin is […]

Last night was a drubbing of a sitting president like we have not seen since 1932. At this writing, we’re at around 60 seats worth of swing away from the Democrats, and by the end of this, possibly 70 seats. Look, let’s be honest…. Even assuming Obama and the minions of the left had a […]

2010-imageGoodbye 2009!  Hello 2010!

Nearly everyone I talk to expresses relief at the end of 2009.  It would be a good year to forget, that is, if we didn’t have to deal with the consequences of decisions and actions that will reverberate throughout the rest of our lives.

But it’s a new year now, so no doom and gloom.  I’ll leave that to our President, and let me point out that he’s good at it!  I’m not one to make resolutions, but there are several that I’ve made this year:

  • Read more
  • Write more
  • Laugh more
  • […]
