I won’t try to speak for the guy in Florida arranging for the very public burning of the Koran. Nor, by the same token, will I attempt to speak for the  foreign-funded groups attempting to put a Mosque at or near Ground Zero. Nor, in fact will I try to defend either. They stand or […]

I notice that the most recent gamble of our tax money involves the Chevy Volt… Keep in mind, this is the president who told us that the GM and Chrysler bailouts were an unvarnished success. What a lot of people don’t seem to understand is that this monstrosity of General Motors is at the center […]

Micheal Wade over at Q&O asks an interesting question:  Will Balloon Boy Be The New Schiavo? I truly hope that I’m wrong. That cooler heads will prevail. That, if indeed the parents set this whole thing up as a publicity stunt, the local authorities will handle it sternly, yet quietly. “We” don’t need to be […]
