  • Bush announced recently that he was rescinding the executive order prohibiting oil drilling on the continental shelf. An idiot reporter wanted to know why he didn’t tell people to quit driving so much and set their thermostat set points higher to reduce energy consumption, to which Bush says he’s not […]

    O’Reilly, practice conservation: shut your mouth

  • A big win for our Republic today, as the Supreme Court narrowly affirmed the right of Americans to keep and bear arms in their decision on District of Columbia V Heller today. This won’t result in a nationwide Castle Doctrine, though it would be nice, but at least the right […]

    Supreme Court for the (rare) win

    A big win for our Republic today, as the Supreme Court narrowly affirmed the right of Americans to keep and bear arms in their decision on District of Columbia V Heller today. This won’t result in a nationwide Castle Doctrine, though it would be nice, but at least the right […]

  • I’ve been with DirecTV since they started the small satellite revolution around 1994…one of their first subscribers. However, I’ve been trying to figure out for nearly two years whether I want to stay with them or go with Dish Network. I prefer DTV over Dish…they have some channels the other […]

    Playing Hard Ball with DirecTV

  • I’ve nearly had enough of this pathetic excuse for a presidential campaign. Last week, I was fully planning on not voting at all. I know some people belly-ache about that, citing some version of “too many good men died to secure my right to vote!” Yeah, whatever…they died to secure […]

    A Conservative for Clinton? It’s Possible!

    I’ve nearly had enough of this pathetic excuse for a presidential campaign. Last week, I was fully planning on not voting at all. I know some people belly-ache about that, citing some version of “too many good men died to secure my right to vote!” Yeah, whatever…they died to secure […]

  • I had planned to put together a commentary on the meaning of the Christmas holiday, but I just read something that nearly threw me into a full-blown Donald Duck conniption: “Archbishop of Canterbury Dismisses Nativity Scene as Nothing but ‘Legend’“. So I felt not only the need for a commentary, but […]

    The Miracle of Christmas

    I had planned to put together a commentary on the meaning of the Christmas holiday, but I just read something that nearly threw me into a full-blown Donald Duck conniption: “Archbishop of Canterbury Dismisses Nativity Scene as Nothing but ‘Legend’“.

  • Those were words I often heard from one of my favorite ex-co-workers from time to time, and it was always in relation to some stupid thing the government does.  Whether it was taxes (usually around mid-April), divorce law, immigration, quotas, or any number of things, that was pretty much what […]

    “There’s gonna be a revolution in this country!”

  • It’s May Day, A.K.A. Surrender National Sovereignty Day, or “Mayday! Mayday!” For the United States Today being May Day, whose significance is totally lost to me (being a WASP), thousands of scalawags and assorted immigrants (legal and otherwise) marched their sorry selves up and down American streets protesting the federal […]

  • Since the last time I wrote on the subject a couple days ago, we’ve learned a good bit more about the Virginia Tech killer. Not only that, but there’ve been lots and lots of blame being passed around. I’ve got a few additional things to say concerning this, as it […]

    More thoughts on the Virginia Tech massacre

  • I’m sick to death of cable news channels trying to pass off tabloid material as news. I don’t care about Britney Spears’ domestic squabbles. I don’t want to hear about OJ Simpson’s ridiculous new book on how he killed (oops, would have if he’d ever wanted to) Nicole and Ron. […]

    Stupid news coverage

  • Of course, there’s a thing in the news lately about Michael J. Fox jittering away in a political ad, and it reminds me of a long-standing pet peeve of mine. Why is it that folks want their middle initial in their full name? I don’t go on the air and […]

    I hate it when people’s middle initial is part of their name
