LOCK HER UP! LOCK HER UP!

So let me tell you about my little town. We have a population of just under 2,500 people. In the 2016 election, 1,748 were registered to vote, and 1,291 did so, an excellent turnout of over 70%! Today I voted just before 4:00pm, well before the after work crowd shows... Continue reading

On one of the most momentous days of our Republic, the Washington Post decided to publish an article from Megan McArdle about her refrigerator. Now, if McArglebargle was a mere commentator on the mundane, this wouldn't be unusual. But she considers herself an intellect who routinely weighs in on matters... Continue reading

From a purely political standpoint, this is the most earth-shattering day of my life. Two of Trump's close confidants are off to prison, and Cohen admitted he coordinated payments to porn stars to influence the election. In a normal world, this would be the end of Trump. But the spineless... Continue reading

Elliott Ness: We have evidence that you're running a bootlegging operation, killing rivals, and to boot, you're not paying income taxes. Al Capone: I assure you, I am doing none of those things. Elliot Ness: Well OK then, your word is good enough for me! Sorry to bother you. Continue reading

This is huge! The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday denied an attempt by top Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers to delay drawing a new congressional map after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had found the current one unconstitutional. What that means is that the Republican legislature will have to draw a partisan-neutral map... Continue reading

Sure, its a Saturday, and the kiddos are down in Virginia visiting their grandmother, but this is our first significant snowfall of the season (we got a light snow on Christmas) so I'm excited! I don't think I could live someplace that didn't have four distinct seasons. Continue reading

I don't believe in gods or supernatural beings. I don't think there is a heaven or a hell. I do think this is the one life we have, and that whatever we can do to make that a better life for someone is worth doing simply for the act, and... Continue reading

Its necessary to comfort the comfortable by cutting their tax obligations, and as a result, add over a trillion dollars to the deficit, hence, we can no longer afford to comfort the poor, the sick, and the vulnerable. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday that congressional Republicans will... Continue reading

You know that, and I know that, and I suspect the politicians know that too, but they're more worried about maintaining that flow of dollars from their benefactors. We are a plutocracy.

Once again, The Shame of Butler County makes an ass of himself. From the P-G: Mr. Metcalfe's comments, captured on video, came after the committee's ranking Democrat, state Rep. Matt Bradford of Montgomery County, was trying to make a point about a bill having to do with land use and,... Continue reading

Orrin Hatch. “[L]et me tell you something: we’re going to do CHIP. There’s no question about it in my mind. It’s got to be done the right way. But we, the reason CHIP’s having trouble is because we don’t have money anymore,” Hatch continued. “I believe in helping those who... Continue reading

Not that my personal situation should dictate national policy, but my quick back of the napkin calculations show me that initially the Senate plan costs me about 400 more a year in taxes, while the House plan shows about an 800 savings, $67.00 a month! WooHoo! Once I figure out... Continue reading
