Edtor’s note: Once again as in years past, I’ve found my inbox filled with messages from longtime readers who wonder if I’m going to be re-posting “A Bithead’s Christmas”, and begging me to do so. As I believe I’ve told you in previous years, I get more email about this one single post, these 2900 […]

Carlisle, PA— Actually, I’m a little closer to Harrisburg… but whatever. GREAT TO BE BACK– Yes, it took a while, but we’re back. I simply got fed up with the antics at the webhost I was using.  Far too much downtime, usually caused by them.  And always without notice. For a while there, I didn’t […]

Carlisle, PA– A quick run down from Rochester last night, and I’ll be headed for the Albany tomorrow. From there, likely back to Rochester, but I don’t know yet.   It’s snowed around Rochester Saturday night/Sunday morning,m and we’re looking at somewhat colder temps. Was nearly 60 on Saturday around home. It’s as I tld […]

There is perhaps no better comparison to what happens with governmental largess, than the seagull.  Rats with wings, they have been called… and for at least this purpose the comparison is fairly accurate. Consider the similarities between the seagull and the benefactor of monies forcibly removed from taxpayers: Seagulls have a tendency to stick around […]

There is no moral imperative driving this message, tonight — no calls for a life of self sacrifice, no direct calls for intensive reflection this night, not even a real punch line of the story.  I will let you decide if these thoughts call for that. Tonight, I’m thinking back…. decades gone by, in fact. […]

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 […]

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 […]

We here in America have a problem. It is a major problem. There are large number of people in this country, indeed I begin to suspect majority, who are sensing danger and destruction in our near future if this problem isn’t solved. Certainly it can be considered an economic problem, but I suspect that most […]

Brunswick, NJ– I’m going up to Queens in the morning, then back into Jersey and then to Connecticut.  Drying out now, but cool. Truck is fine, and I am as well. Occupy Wall Street and the Chicago ’68 Riots I commend to your reading this article. The insights are very powerful. Fred Seigel makes the […]

The Unhinged Mind, Glenn Greenwald pondered, from Salon: It’s unsurprising that establishment media outlets have been condescending, dismissive and scornful of the ongoing protests on Wall Street. Any entity that declares itself an adversary of prevailing institutional power is going to be viewed with hostility by establishment-serving institutions and their loyalists. That’s just the nature […]

Reposted from 9/13/01 It is recorded in our history books that when he looked down at the ship full of smiling, victorious faces… faces of his flyers, just having returned from Pearl Harbor, Japanese fleet Admiral Yamamoto was quiet, pensive, even apprehensive. He later wrote in his private diary, “I fear all I have done […]

Middle Village, NYC– I’m here dropping off yet another load. I’ll be headed for Bethlehem PA, shortly. Middle 80’s outside. Looks like we’re building for that storm I spoke of yesterday. John Huntsman in: He tried invoking Reagan. And trust me, Huntsman is no Reagan. Reagan was an unapologetic conservative.  Huntsman is not. Example: The […]

Chrissy Matthews bitten by the Weiner, from back to back posts at McCain.  First Chrissy discusses values: This is, to me, the stakes here. If [Anthony Weiner] stays, [Democrats] never get the leadership back. They never get the Speakership back because the people in the rural areas of this country who are Christian conservative culturally […]
