Roxeanne DeLuca on FIRE

I love Roxeanne's post on the Herman Cain story, first there is the lawyerly perspective: From a legal perspective, this is absurd. As Erick Erickson points out, sexual harassment cases against a wealthy, high-profile man do not settle for five figures unless the claim is total b.s., and it’s easier to settle than to pay … Continue reading Roxeanne DeLuca on FIRE

Seaching for Herman Cain’s coke can: Update: watch Politico squirm

I have been going back and forth between Herman Cain and Rick Santorum in my mind for the last few weeks. If there is anything that is likely to push me over the edge in Favor of Herman Cain it's this. The sources — which include the recollections of close associates and other documentation — … Continue reading Seaching for Herman Cain’s coke can: Update: watch Politico squirm

Robert Stacy McCain on the path he (and I) have chosen

If you want to know what this blog is all about, Stacy McCain explains it to a T: I've been there on that 0 when I've done something I've been proud of.

This was at the Maryland Conservative Action Network Turning the Tides conference … Continue reading Robert Stacy McCain on the path he (and I) have chosen

Fitchburg 7:28 a.m. Sunday

One of the side effects of being married to a nurse is that storm or no storm she is expected at work for 6:45. Got up at 5 and decided that the best move would be to go out the front door, shovel to the street and use the street to access the driveway and … Continue reading Fitchburg 7:28 a.m. Sunday

My wife's decorative grass has done poorly As have my grape vines and here is my quick video of the area: If there was ever a good … Continue reading Al Gore visits Fitchburg Oct 29th 2011…

An “occupy” idea that solves problems

Comes from this youtube video via cnbc Now this is clever and doesn't present a health hazard, a smart protest. I don't mind it one bit. Of course the bank will pass on the costs this protest creates to their customers making higher prices for consumers and lower interest rates to customers and the whole … Continue reading An “occupy” idea that solves problems

Can’t do better than Ace of Spades on Occupy

I was going to do a post on these developments but Ace of Spades just pardon the pun ACED it. Making this all the more interesting is the fact that the "In-Group" here -- the OWS protesters -- are largely white, while the Out-Group they seek to exclude are largely not. At this pace, in … Continue reading Can’t do better than Ace of Spades on Occupy

Pay no attention to those 5000 jobs gone at Whirlpool

The media meme today is the economy is getting better and Obama's numbers are improving and it doesn't matter what is actually happening at Whirlpool: Appliance maker Whirlpool Corp. said Friday it will cut 5,000 jobs, about 10 percent of its workforce in North America and Europe, as it faces soft demand and higher costs … Continue reading Pay no attention to those 5000 jobs gone at Whirlpool

If Elizabeth Warren is running away from the Occupy Movement in Massachusetts

that tells you that no matter what Morning Joe and MSNBC says, this thing is toxic. All it took was one ad. and she went running Elizabeth Warren responds to Occupy comments: MyFoxBOSTON.com Gee I wonder if backing an accused Al Qaeda terrorist in Boston has something to do with it? Strangely enough Morning Joe … Continue reading If Elizabeth Warren is running away from the Occupy Movement in Massachusetts

DaTechGuy at DaCourthouse

This morning I drove down to Boston to check out the protests at the opening of the Tarek Mehanna trial as I heard there were going to be competing protests concerning it. I left the house at 7 a.m. but thanks to rush hour traffic in the pouring rain and a slow T, arrived at … Continue reading DaTechGuy at DaCourthouse

Ok NOW I have a problem with DADT repeal

Back in Feb 2010 I said this concerning during the debate on DADT: My opinion on “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is a variation of Lincoln statement on slavery. Our goal should be having the strongest most efficient military in the world. We need a military strong enough to reassure our friends and to give our … Continue reading Ok NOW I have a problem with DADT repeal

True colors of hollow legions

‘We have tried war – but the use of purely economic power is far more effective.’ The Collector to the 4th Doctor Dr. Who the Sunmakers   One of the things I've always thought about the EU was the irony of a power structure with the French and Germans running Europe via the European Union … Continue reading True colors of hollow legions
