His subject is the financial crisis, and he is very good on it: sober and analytical. I must say, … Continue reading I’m going to be a little unfair here…
CNN seems to think that democratic attack ads featuring Rush Limbaugh are going to scare republican Senators into voting with Obama: The commercials blast House Republicans for refusing to vote for Obama's stimulus proposal this week, claiming that the GOP lawmakers took marching orders from conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh not to support … Continue reading Yeah this will work
You know every now and then you read something that is so mindbogglingly absurd that you can't believe it is real. Major PSH from a group that is, and I am not making this up, protesting that ROTC offers arms training. Two things leap out at me here. One is that they really think military … Continue reading I wonder if they protest chemical engineers?
Pat Dollard express' outrage and some disbelief at vandalism and disrespect for religion and free speech rights by the "tolerant" left. The College Republicans were in possession of a number of crucifixes used in a University-sanctioned Right To Life display. When the display was taken down, they were stored in the College Repulicans’ side of … Continue reading They’re just on the other side
John McCain is a great American but has a liberal streak that drives many conservatives nuts. He is however rock solid on two important issues. #1 The War. His support for the war particularly when everyone else was running away is the 2nd of two debts that this country can never repay to him. #2 … Continue reading How soon they forget
If you are looking to find out how to create jobs why not listen to a person who single handedly turned AM radio from something that generated small scale revenue to the powerhouse it is now.

My assertion that the press will start acting like real reporters can't come soon enough for the Anchoress: They’re not asking “the tough questions.” The thing is Obama’s baby so it must be brilliant and right and they are promoting it with all their might, unquestioningly. Just as they promoted Al Gore’s Global Warming Traveling … Continue reading It hasn’t happened yet
The pattern of how news is reported by our media when it comes to either Israel or the west seems to have been established. Report an atrocity, Condemn it, organize protests, demand concessions and then the actual facts come out: There was just one problem: The story, as etched in people's minds, was not quite … Continue reading Jenin: Haditha: Gaza School, lie, deny ignore repeat
My review of Big Finish Adventure # 43 Dr. Who and the Pirates or the Lass That Lost a Sailor is now available at Amazon here. The 3rd CD part turns the story into a musical. A YouTube version of the rather cute song: Gallifreyan Buccaneer is below:
At the same time that the federal government is making a dumb move here in Massachusetts Gov Patrick, (David Axelrod's dry run for President Obama) is doing it as well on a smaller scale: The good news is that Deval Patrick has been declared “America’s Best Governor” by the state’s taxpayers and small business owners. … Continue reading Idiocy on a more local scale
You might remember Samantha Power who's views on Israel were a bit of an issue but her statements about the now secretary of state were embarrassing enough to remove her from the campaign.

The Sci-Fi network has a regular run of Doctor Who at 5 a.m. EST on Friday mornings. Normally I only watch it if I happen to wake, but I expected the season finale, and instead got Partners in Crime. A very good episode but not what I was waiting for. I guess I'll have to … Continue reading Minor Gyp
The interview went well but the drive home was rather long as I ran into construction. Stopped at a new spot called Tennessee BBQ which supposedly has won a ton of awards. After trying it I found it overpriced and under-tasted.
Blogging will likely be stopping shortly till late tonight as I have a job interview this afternoon. Ironically one of my references will be interviewing at the same place tomorrow. I hope they have two openings. Wish me luck. Or if you'd rather not, wish him luck, he's a nice guy.

Well the successor's of Henry … Continue reading Big BIG news in religion
You know If I'm the democrats and I really believed that this bill was a great idea and would work; I'd be thrilled. I'd be thinking that I can take full credit, when the solution comes New Deal 2 earn the love of the country. This will keep us in power for decades and be … Continue reading Shouldn’t the Democrats be happy?
The more I see the more I've convinced that MSNBC needs Rush Limbaugh to be the big dog in the yard. All of MSNBC is setup as an adversarial network. Fawning over someone will not bring ratings. If Rush can be the star of the show then they have something to push back on. Just … Continue reading A symbiotic relationship Rush and MSNBC (morning joe)
