I have decided to close my Typepad account. It's 15 bucks a month, but it's money I'm wasting. I will maintain a blog and am contemplating a new title, but it will be on Blogger. I've already created it. I... Continue reading

It's been a tough year for everyone including the earth. Three times the world was predicted to come to an end this year and we are all still here. Between a hurricane, some tragic shootings and the rising cost of... Continue reading

Every time we have a tragedy involving guns, liberals seem to remember that there are guns and not a second amendment that says we can have them. The theory is that if we pass more restrictive laws, or outright ban... Continue reading

I've been trying to write something about the Sandy Hook Massacre in Newtown, Connecticut since it happened and every time I start to put words to screen, something in the story changes. We went from one bit of misinformation to... Continue reading

You may have heard of a scandal amongst the British scandal mongers. In Britain, there are two types of newspapers. There are the regular newspapers such as the left leaning Guardian and the more conservative Telegraph. There are also the... Continue reading

There is a war on Christianity and Christmas is a major front in that war. It's a war whose generals are lawyers and their army consists of liberal atheists full of hatred for all things Christian. There are an abundance... Continue reading

You've heard of the so-called "fiscal cliff" by now. It's when all of the Bush tax cuts expire and taxes will increase markedly at that moment – that moment being midnight on December 31st. Some say it's not a cliff,... Continue reading

You hear it at every liberal protest. They demand democracy. "Power to the people!", they chant trying to tell the world that if given the chance, the people would vote for their cause. The left believes that Socialism and its... Continue reading

Since the holiday is over and we are now coming out of our tryptophan induced coma, the race to Christmas has begun. Black Friday is gone and cyber Monday approaches. Unfortunately, there are some people out there that hate all... Continue reading

Most lawmakers, especially liberal woman lawmakers (and yes, I'm being sexist here, but truth is what it is) are gun stupid. They wouldn't know a magnum from a magazine, but they know guns are bad and if you don't ban... Continue reading

Today, most Americans will gather round a table with family and friends to celebrate the most unique of holidays. It is not celebrating a specific event, despite its storied beginnings. It does not celebrate a person nor is it even... Continue reading

Traditions, by and large, are a good thing. It is often the glue that holds us together. Not all traditions are good, but most are and they've become traditions for a reason. Most liberals hate America and American culture. American... Continue reading

The United States Government is a quagmire of offices, departments, organizations, and bureaucracies. We probably don't have a clue as to how many and what they all do. On the other hand, nobody in the government has much more of... Continue reading

I admit I was rather surprised that Obama won re-election. I figured it would be close, but I thought common sense would prevail. I…was wrong. A lot of Republican soul searching was launched and like any such exercise, it quickly... Continue reading

Romney was demonized by liberals as some kind of corporate raider whose only purpose was to steal profits, fire the workers and scarf up the pension funds. It was a lie, but it was an effective one. Liberals don't like... Continue reading

As I watch this whole bizarre Petraeus episode unfold, I can't help but shake my head. If this is a one-off for the general, I'd be shocked. He was in the military a long time. There is a dirty little... Continue reading

California was once golden. The lure of instant riches is the story of the state. From the first golden flakes found at Sutter's Mill by James Marshall to the golden age of Hollywood, millions from all over the world came... Continue reading

We are facing what many are calling a "fiscal cliff" if we don't get a handle on our spending and if taxes rise to Pre-Bush levels. The consensus, especially among the Democrats, is that we must tax the rich more.... Continue reading

It's often opined that no one should talk about religion or politics and there are a number of situations where that might be a good idea. On the other hand, my answer to that bit of wisdom has always been... Continue reading

In 1776, a group of men came together and signed a statement of purpose. They could not know that their efforts would have such a far reaching impact upon the history of the world. I'm certain that they understood the... Continue reading

There's a lot of blather going around about why Romney lost, much of it is just that – blather. One of the memes oft quoted by liberals, including our token liberal here in the office, is the idea that the... Continue reading

So, it's over. Obama won re-election. This isn't some rant about how Obama lied or introspective navel gazing about what went wrong with Romney's campaign. A big part of what went wrong was not the fault of the republicans, per... Continue reading

I know, I've said it before. But this time, I'm really going to put forth the effort to re-start this old blog. I will be tweaking the look and adding updated links as I get back into the habit of... Continue reading

Hey! Didja hear the one about the old actor that gave a speech at the Republican convention? Stop me if you've heard this one. When I heard that Clint Eastwood was the “mystery” speaker at the RNC convention, I was... Continue reading
