  • I was doing something the other day I won't be doing again in the foreseeable future: reading a Motor Trend magazine. I was out of toilet reading material, but, while reading, I found another toiletry use for the magazine. Yup, they're pushing an increased gas tax, like the government's talking about even now.  It's all about forced behavior modification and enhanced governmental control over lives.

For some perverted reason, over the last few years there's not been a Christmas that has gone unspoiled by some tomfoolery. This year (2008), the flashpoint is apparently centered in the Washington State Capital building, where an atheistic organization placed a sign protesting religion in general, Christianity in particular, and Christmas expressly. 

It's a display that smacks of spiteful children railing about how unfair some fact of life is.

    Merry…winter solstice? I don’t think so.

  • Yup, that's a provacative title, but I can't think of any other explanation aside from abject ignorance. Basically, it boils down to three matters that, while interrelated, are still discernable and worth putting forward.  This is my mile-long post for the year, so hold on to your hats.

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 […]

  • 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 […]
