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 […]

Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

THE OBAMA SPEECH: FAIL Art Smith looks at the Obama speech last night and asks if the speech changed your mind. So does Hinderaker. They both came, of course to the same conclusion. And Byron York notices somehting in the speech last night… a sliding scale of uninsured. And even Congress isn’t putting up with […]

After years of planning and billions of dollars spent on new equipment, including those $50.00 digital TV converter boxes, the government is currently trying to figure out whether not actually wants to follow through on the timetable it originally proposed for the conversion.

I note Bruce McQuain pointing out yet another obvious case of anti-oil bias, this time from the AP. Well, big freakin’ shock, eh? I have long since become convinced that most of the anti-oil hysteria we see from the left and the press (A redundancy of the first order, that) is really anti-American hyteria, looking […]
