Buffalo, NY– I’m at the Erie County Medical Center, dropping off some furniture that I picked up at Elkhart IN. A nice little stretch of the legs. I’ll be back at the yard in a few hours and ready for my next adventure. This trip out west is likely a rare event, but I must […]

Liberty Township, PA– Yes, I’m still here. The roads around here opened up last night,  but in all the excitement of the floods and road closings and such I must have kicked up a bit of road junk. I’ve got an issue with a brake slack adjuster in one wheel. I’m waiting to get fixed […]

Piscataway, NJ– Grabbing a load for May’s Landing. From here back up to NY state. Still hot, but a clear and beautiful looking day. REPEATING HISTORY: FDR’s policies prolonged Depression by 7 years, UCLA economists calculate. Any more questions about why we’re still in a fiscal problem, folks?

(New York City)-– I’m actually not far from where I was the other day, at Middle Village. Just up the Metropolitan Bvd, in fact. A nice drive this morning. Now, it’s about a 5. 1/2 hr drive, though so I had to leave Rochester at around 5am. Not overly happy about that but at least […]

POTUS owes CIA an apology, from Marc A. Thiessen, Washington Post: Now, it turns out that the very CIA interrogators whose lives Obama turned upside down played a critical role in what the president rightly calls “the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al Qaeda.” It is time for a […]

Harford,PA Today I’m at the Flying J truck stop in Harford, along I-81. I ran from Rochester, down to Carlisle PA and am currently running up toward Albany. I got the antennas fixed on the truck last week, and so was able to take the emergency spare, that I’d put up, down.  It turns out, […]

Rome, NY– As this is posted, I’m in the old Griffith Air Force base.  They’re using a whole bunch of the old base being used for industry, these days. One of the industries is a Family Dollar distribution center, to which I’m making a delivery. I came up from Dayton, NJ last night, and drove […]

It is the incompetence stupid , Eugene Robinson, Washington Post plays the race card and tries to argue that the Teat Party movement is somehow racists: I have to wonder what it is about Obama that provokes and sustains all this tea party ire. I wonder how he can be seen as “elitist,” when he […]

Dan Miller over at Pajamas Media: Some probably disagree, but I think President Obama’s race was the deciding factor in his election. Had he been Caucasian, Asian, or Hispanic, he probably would not have got the Democratic Party nomination, much less been elected president. President Hillary Clinton would likely be sitting behind the desk in […]
