Hm-m-m

What if they gave an election and no one came? Now if no one will vote, we might see some real progress!

Want proof that big cities would be death traps if TSHTF?

Los Angles needs to close a freeway for 2 1/2 days to rebuild a portion. Apparently people in the are so dependent on their cars to live that armageddeon will occur.

Either the media is playing up the hype, or LA is truly doomed. We'll see in a couple of days.

Seems like tit-for-tat to me

But now, a Colorado woman is accused of putting her hands on a TSA agent at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

Court records show 61-year-old Yukari Mihamae grabbed the left breast of the female agent Thursday at the Terminal 4 checkpoint.

You see, it's security when they do it to us, but it's felony sexual abuse when we do it to them.

Whoa



You want proof of ice water in the veins? Listen to the pilot breathing. I caught it elevated for just a few seconds immediately prior to the landing.

My vote is that this man never buys another beer in a bar for the rest of his life.

Oh, those wacky leftists

It seems that when they get caught with their pee-pee (figuratively) hanging out in a university class, they respond by bullying behavior, slander and various threats of force.

Ayn Rand strikes yet another chord with me...

Save the drama for your mama

The Boy King seems to be losing his patience with those of us who do not believe that he is The Smartest Guy in the Room.

"Enough is enough. ... I'll see you all tomorrow," Obama said, rising from the negotiating table and leaving the room, according to several officials familiar with the session.

I wonder if he took his ball with him?

What was that about bringing a knife to a gun fight?

A Wilkes County homeowner shot and killed a man who was armed with a machete and broke into his home, Sheriff Chris Shew told WXII.

Oh yeah, now I remember.

It's amazing

How Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" just keeps getting played out in real life.

Peg the Hypocrisy Meter: "I know, let's hold the old folks hostage!"

In the game of "Debt Ceiling Brinksmanship", the Big O decides to one up the Republicans, who are always accused by Democrats of hating the poor and wanting to send senior citizens out on the ice floes to die.

It seems to me that "cynical political move" doesn't quite cover it here....

A question for the masses

For those of you who use Sitemeter, do you trust the statistics it generates?

The reason I ask is that I'm seeing huge differences between what it reports and what Blogger's built-in stats reports in terms page views and so on. Based on Sitemeter's numbers I'm just about talking to myself, but Blogger says I have a decent audience out there for my ramblings and rantings. Based on Sitemeter, I have an average audience of around 70 people per day. Blogger puts the number about 3x-4x higher. Yes I know that either is still kind of small, but in essence this is done for me. I appreciate that anyone at all stops by, but I'm still curious about how many, and I value accuracy in all things.

When you also add to that that the Sitemeter code adds time to the page load (sometimes by a lot), I'm really considering dropping it. You folks have any thoughts on the matter?

I've stayed off this particular subject

But after a conversation with a neighbor yesterday, I do feel that I need to point out that the Stupid Party needs to stay off social issues--period. They are losers for them and for us. Stick to a message about reigning in the government to Constitutional limits and getting spending back into line, maintaining our borders, personal responsibility and so on and you'll win every time (outside of the big leftist enclaves we know as "metropolitan areas").

Start talking about abortion, "family values" and similar nonsense, and you're going to lose. I think it's because people understand that, in essence, they're being hypocrites. You can't be for personal responsibility and want to mandate various moral issues via the force of law.

A solution in search of a problem?

It seems so to me, since I already have to cough up considerable information to access my bank accounts online.

Several lawmakers and the current Cyber Command chief Gen. Keith Alexander are toying with the notion of creating a ".secure" domain where Fourth Amendment rights to privacy are voluntarily foregone in order to keep that corner of the Internet free of cyber criminals.

They start this nonsense and they can just send me my statements on paper and I'll send my bills by check. Back to the future!

Ever read "Atlas Shrugged"?

If you have, then this story should sound wearily familiar. Remember, when they come to take whatever it is you have, it's only because someone else needs it more. Be socially conscious and give it to them gladly.
