Power does corrupt. No surprise here, but the subject is amusing.

I still see a landslide.

Transcripts of the RNC yesterday.

He will be missed.
Read his archives and hope he comes back.

A spotlight on a fifth column.

Why seven years?

It seems obvious that LIFE IS NOT FAIR although some might argue that it actually is. The usual (and correct IMHO) response to someone that complains about it is... 'yeah, so deal with it.'

The question that is often raised is how much of dealing with it is an individual responsibility and how much is societal? What about family responsibility? Parents make the decision to bring a child into the world, with all it's consequences, economic and otherwise. May I be allowed to say that those decisions are not always responsibly made? ...and that I acknowledge that even an irresponsible childbirth can lead to a person of greatness?

We used to be a country of self reliant individuals... but we seem to have lost some of that. Too many busybodies and not enough bodies busy with their own affairs.

My mother was one of the older of thirteen children. She dropped out of school in the sixth grade to be mother to her younger siblings while grandmother worked.

My wife has a masters degree and has been indoctrinated with communist ideals. Before coming to this country the only jobs she's ever had were given to her by connections of either her father or her ex-husband. She constantly complains that I don't do enough to find her a good job.

Both have a martyr complex and they are not alone. On the other hand, they are both very capable of taking care of themselves... to a certain point.

Meanwhile, I do the best that I can. I wish I could do more.

Just heard O'Reilly respond to Ann Coulter's column... Yeah, he would have split the baby in half, thinking he has the wisdom of Solomon, when the wisdom of Solomon was NOT to split the baby in half.

But he's in good company, a lot of judges imagine they are Solomon too, that baby gets cut an awful lot in the courts, in my limited experience.

I keep wondering how anybody can refute the simplicity of these arguments. That's a general link btw, he always makes simple, clear arguments. He talks about minimum wage at this time, but a few days ago made this statement...

"...every transaction in a free market economy is a win-win transaction..." otherwise, one side or the other would have to be forced against their will to make the transaction. Seems pretty clear to me.

I wish Russ would write a textbook for middle to high school students (if he hasn't already?) We need a new generation that understands the principles of economics and capitalism enough to realize when someone is trying to feed them b.s.

A hopeful sign that congress is doing something about the 'Oil-for-Fraud' program.

Her final statement could be a swift solution.

Another reason for a cleaning of the state department.

Two views, here and here.
Ambush is correct. Despicable.

I saw this too and the lady was definitely given a chance to correct her statement.
Rather amazing.

Now this is no surprise. Now who was it that actually won the popular vote?

The key passage... Of the 46,000 registered in both states, 68% are Democrats, 12% are Republicans and 16% didn't claim a party.

These were New Yorkers voting in Florida. Florida? No controversy there, eh?

update: Boortz has the same take.

I might be the perfect witness? Not! OTOH, I just don't get angry enough to write a good rant.

This, of course, is total bullshit. But money talks as usual.

Not everyone thinks JFK is unfit for command.

Wheaton beats out the White house...

It's nice to see the ironically down-to-earth Wil make it on this distinguished list.

The question is, do you think the NYTs and CNN are on the top of the list because they are more trusted or because they generate the most outrage.

Just wondering aloud...

Speaking of shills

One of the basics of understanding truth is to know what influences the source. Even those that honestly try to be unbias are going to have bias, depending on their environment. Some of the accusations that are flying around seem pretty ridiculous to me. But underneath it all, something is true and the more the spotlight is put to it the more likely we will get closer to that truth. Frankly, it's hard to believe the Democrats would put forth such an unelectable candidate.

Gas 'em and Go!
I like that.

Shooting from the hip, I'd say this was a good idea. Yet, I wonder what kind of mischief a bunch of agents with no job to do, but still having a job, would cause? Does anybody believe a massive federal agency could just be disbanded?

The Iraquis know they can rebuild the 'Holy Mosques' the bad guys are hiding in... the gloves are coming off.

The pieces are falling into place. I've taken care of a number of details today. In two more hours, I'll take one more step... Let freedom reign.

Financial freedom that is, I'm trying to start a business on a shoestring. My wife says I give her no money (because by her accounting, since I live in the same house, nothing I give her counts... which is to say, almost my entire paycheck each time it comes.)

Thank goodness for net terms! I haven't felt like this for twenty years.

I'm tired. I'm tired of a whole list of things. This week I've made some changes which should turn my life around. One day I won't feel the need to be so cryptic. When you're weak you have to be sneaky or they'll crush you. Take your pick as to who they are... employers, spouse, family, friends... they can all give you advise but don't seem to be able to get control of their own lives.

One day I hope to have the freedom to shout from the rooftops (I'm a pretty fat target regardless.)

Now that cheered me up!

Sting 'em ALL!
We need resources to process all these threats. My question is... Is a fine and imprisonment enough? These are capital crimes in a war. We should extract all the info we can, then bury them in pig skin.

So this is what hell looks like...

Read it.

Lands of difference... imagine we needed to secure our own land from terrorists this way?

Why no posting lately?... nothing special, just depression.
