Once again, this is my shocked face

(Via the Drudge Report)

For the umpteenth time, government "does something" and makes the situation worse.

This time, the victims are horses. And the idiots who pushed for the current piece of back-firing foolishness want to ramp up the suffering: "...animal-rights activists and some horse lovers pushed to close slaughterhouses and ban exports."

If they get their way again, expect to see abandoned horses the way we now see abandoned cats and dogs. And expect the same group of fools lobby for yet another law that will make things even worse, if that's possible.

Stop looking to government for the solutions to your problems. Because, as Ronald Reagan said, government isn't the solution, it's the problem.

Another stupid idea

From the Community Organizer in Chief...

Tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. After all, it's just 60 million barrels. We'll never miss that.

Ah, ecofools

North Carolina passes a incredibly stupid law mandating higher electricity prices; the use of "green" energy to appease the socialist idiots who comprise their voter base save the planet from global warming and they're pissed off that the power companies are not allowing their designated looter buddies to feed at the trough they created for them obeying the law.

You know, I'm listening to "Atlas Shrugged" in audio book form right now. First time I've "re-read" the book in years. Move over Stephen King, because Ayn Rand may well be the greatest horror writer ever.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

For me, this one is bittersweet, since it's the first one since my Dad died in January. I'm not all teary and depressed, but I'm a bit more aware of that Dad-sized hole in my world.

This is my Dad the last time we went trout fishing together. The water was low, and in 3 days we didn't catch one fish. But we had a good time anyway.

Next week, I'm going to take his ashes back there and leave a bit of him in that same place. Hopefully he'll be able to go fishing anytime he wants.
