Economy of Swine

America, and the world, could be looking at the worst recession since the ’70s and early ’80s. (Coincidentally, the last recession began simultaneously with the end of an 8 year presidency.  The one before that was pretty close, too.) I remember that era. Only the unions and the remnants of employer-worker loyalty saved my neighbors from…

Obama Calls Bill Clinton a Liar

In an interview certain to shock Democrats who believe Bill Clinton a paragon of truthfulness and honesty, Democrat candidate Barack Obama has accused Bill Clinton of lying, according to ABC News. “You know the former president, who I think all of us have a lot of regard for, has taken his advocacy on behalf of…

Looks, Brains . . . Well, Looks

Hollywood has more airheads than the candy aisle at a convenience store.  Some of the stories, though, are better than others.  Case in point:  Charlize Theron. “We went to Turkey. When we got over there, we rented a car and we drove all the way to Budapest. By the time we got to Budapest it…

I’ve Been Spied Upon

Apparently Beth (MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy) overheard a conversation between my wife and me at dinner last night. We were talking about Kiefer Sutherland’s release from jail, which led us to how whacked Britney Spears is, to which my wife added, “Tom Cruise is even worse.”

The Future of Fred

WordPress Upgrades Suck

I love many things about WordPress, but their upgrades suck. About 2 weeks ago, WP notified users that an urgent security fix was required.  I put it off as long as I could, but last night seemed like a good time to try it. I have 2–count ‘em 2–test sites. I upgraded both of them…

First in the South–Now What?

The polls in South Carolina closed 52 minutes ago, and ABC News projects that John McCain and Mike Huckebee will finish first and second (or second and first) with Fred Thompson battling Mitt Romney for third. A third place finish could spell the end for Thompson and hopes for a conservative Republican candidate in 2008.…

Romney Wins Nevada

MSNBC projects Mitt Romney will win the Nevada Caucuses, topping Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, and Ron “Hell Yes I’m Nuts” Paul.

The Islamic Republic of Canada

Last weekend, news of Canada’s “Human Rights” Commission’s persecution of a magazine publish sent a frightening chill through her freedom-loving neighbors to the south (US) and through many of her own good citizens. This week, we learn that some Canadians continue their persecution of conservatives, Christians, and free-speakers. Right Wing News has the story of…

Polls Gone Wild

The most recent three polls from South Carolina demonstrate one thing clearly:  you can’t believe polls. Here’s the latest from RealClearPolitics.  The spreads and the leaders are so out of whack, so changing, that no one can draw any intelligent conclusions. Poll Date McCain Huckabee Thompson Romney Paul Giuliani Spread RCP Average 01/14 to 01/18…

Jay Grodner Guilty As Charged

This is a heart-warming,  uplifting story written eloquently.  Jay Grodner, the Chicago lawyer and convicted vote fraud conspirator, was sentenced to probation and to donate to the Semper Fi fund for keying a Marine’s car.  He keyed the car only because its owner was a Marine.
