Last Night, Obama Said…

Last night, Obama said “Recovery Act that has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs“ Can anyone out there point out those 150,000 jobs for me? Just out of curiosity… they may be there, but I’m wondering exactly where they … Continue reading

Motorcycle Tires for a Dual Purpose Bike

I’ve been riding a long time; I think I’m on my tenth motorcycle, at the moment; It’s a DR650 Suzuki dual-purpose. Dual purpose bikes are sort of a niche product – if you can only afford one bike, they are … Continue reading

Coffee – More Coffee…

I drank nine cups of coffee yesterday morning. I stayed awake all the way through the sermon. I think the preacher had had more coffee than I did. Then I didn’t sleep any last night. Gee, I wonder why? I … Continue reading

Abandoned Pets

There must be a special place in hell reserved for people who abandon their pets beside the road out in the country. These people have no compassion – and no sense of responsibility. I wonder how many of them have … Continue reading

Water-boarding is NOT the Issue

Intelligence – We Has It… It’s interesting how Obama has released the documents showing details of water-boarding – but has declined to release documents that would show the actual facts gleaned, from which we, the public, could decide for ourselves … Continue reading

iBotnet and the Mac

Interesting. iBotnet is a ‘Trojan horse’ that infects the Mac. I see that the PC people are cheering. Funny, though – you have to download and run pirated software (iWork 09) to get it. Since I don’t steal software, I’m … Continue reading

Random Thoughts

According to this article, Obama’s proposed Cap and Trade tax would cost the average household $3928 per year. On a semi-related subject, last night I heard on ‘Hannity’ that just the interest to be paid on the $10 trillion deficit … Continue reading

Mexican Guns on Fox

I watched an article on Fox last night with details on a couple of gun trafficking busts on the Mexican border. Greta Van Susteren interviewed some ATF agents, who showed her the items picked up in two busts. These guns … Continue reading

Miss USA California

Miss USA California said that marriage should be between a man and a woman. In our extremely confused culture, this has been labeled ‘controversial’ and ‘an outrage’ and many more. This, in itself, is pretty weird, if you stop to … Continue reading

Reality Distortion….

Charles Krauthammer has an interesting article at Townhall. I want to focus on one statement from his article. The Whopper: The boast that he <Obama> had “identified $2 trillion in deficit reductions over the next decade.” It takes audacity to … Continue reading

DHS Paranoia or the Beginning of Political Suppression?

The Department of Homeland Security recently issued a report – and it’s very interesting. Apparently, these people would classify me as a potential terrorist. Reading the report, I find: I stockpiled ammunition (well, I did buy some extra) “in anticipation … Continue reading

Oh, Come On…

Democratic Senator Russell Feingold blames Bush for the pirate attack. Bush Derangement Syndrome in full swing. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Especially when it’s a U.S. Senator losing touch with reality. Come on, guys – get a … Continue reading

Cap and Trade?

An AP article about congressional deviations from Obama’s budget plans says: An expensive and highly controversial plan to combat global warming through a “cap-and-trade” scheme that calls for auctioning off pollution permits for nearly $650 billion. The Senate, during budget … Continue reading

Obama Did Good!

Authorizing the use of lethal force to save Captain Phillips is the first action by Obama that I thought was well done. Good job for that, Obama. I didn’t think you had it in you, and I’m pleased to have … Continue reading

Microsoft Windows vs Apple OS X

There have been some ads put out by Microsoft recently that emphasize that Macs cost more than Windows machines, for equivalent hardware. This may in fact be true to a certain extent, though not nearly as much as Microsoft would … Continue reading

Wealth Redistribution Won’t Work…

Socialism, or wealth redistribution, or whatever today’s name for it is, will never work in the long run. And this is why: It is based on the idea that the government can take your money at gunpoint and give it … Continue reading

Men (and Women) of God

It seems to me that any preacher, pastor, rabbi, or cleric of any stripe who feels called to do God’s work, and requires payment to do it, has questionable motives or misplaced priorities. The person truly called by God to … Continue reading

Defense of the United States

Obama wants to eliminate nuclear weapons. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wants to stop production of the F-22 Raptor and cut funding for missile defense. Let’s see – in Iraq (twice), and in Afghanistan, in fact in EVERY war we’ve … Continue reading
