I’ve had an interesting week traveling around in the truck. Some of it, I ended up using someone else’s truck since mine was under repair. Lower miles as a result mean lower income, I suppose, but that goes with the territory. As of this writing, I’m back in my own truck, and it seems to […]

I’m tired of the pontificating. I’m tired of the holier-than-thou bearing. I’m tired of the self-important smugness. Most […]

As Canada wages war against the pundit Mark Steyn,  Melanie Phillips, Spectator(UK), poses question does Canada still exist as a free and democratic nation:  The irony, of course, is that by this action Canada is thus demonstrating that if any culture is incompatible with liberalised western civilisation, it is clearly Canada’s.

Remember how the war on terror had replaced social […]

I note Boortz, yesterday, looking at this Michael Vick business with his usual jaundiced eye: Now .. here’s the laugh of the week. Vick’s attorney is Billy Martin.  Here’s what Martin had to say to the press after Vick disappeared behind the barbed wire: “From the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, […]
