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 […]

Utica, NY– I’m back.  In more ways than one. I spent the weekend here with my wife of 22 years, and had a wonderful time. Odd, that this was one of the first places I had to come to unload freight. It’s not as nice a place to be, as it was over the weekend. […]

Indian Castle, NY– I’m along the New York State Thruway, headed home for the weekend, by way of a short stop at Geneva, NY. We had some ice and snow around here last night, which slowed my progress something terrible, so I didn’t make it home as planned. But, since I wasn’t scheduled for anything […]

Horseheads,NY– This is one of those places you wonder “How’d  they come up with that name?” Cooler and windy today, with Showers on and off. One more trip I think, then to the house. Gotta get the camper ready for Next weekend, and the truck ready for Alex’s ride-along with me next week. TAXES: The […]

Micheal Steele right on Afghanistan, from Dan Riehl, Riehl World View: It seems to me, Steele and his defenders on that issue understood the implications of Obama’s changes in Afghanistan, while many of the self-professed intelligent folks in DC did not. Bush didn’t pursue a high intensity ground war in Afghanistan as conditions were and […]

Dumbo’s Direction, from Eugene Robinson, RCP: For what it’s worth, my advice for Obama is to forget the Republicans.  Not literally, of course — the new House leadership is going to make itself hard to ignore. But ultimately, it’s the president who sets the agenda, and who ultimately is held accountable for America’s successes and […]

Et tu Keith, William Kristol, comes to laud the suspended Keith Olbermann, from Weekly Standard: Perhaps Olbermann violated NBC News “policy and standards.” But NBC doesn’t have real news standards for MSNBC—otherwise the channel wouldn’t exist. It’s a little strange to get all high and mighty now. Who knew Bill Kristol was a Roman?   He […]

I blogged yesterday: Consider this closely, now;  The Democrats have had an overwhelming majority in both houses of Congress, and had the White House as well.  Yet, they claim that one of the reasons for their slow “progress” to the left has been Republican stonewalling?  Oh, please.  The reality there is one of two situations, […]

Yes we can becomes No we can not, from Trevor Kavanagh, Sun(UK): Mr Obama may have inherited the crisis from George W Bush, but voters are focusing on his failure to deliver.

Dumbo’s Delusions, Michael Goodwin, New York Post: Barack Obama has gone from a failing president to flailing at ghosts. Even allowing for desperate times, his desperate measures are a national embarrassment. Emancipation? Give us a break. With each passing day, his denunciations of dissent and inflated claims of economic progress turn off the independent voters […]
