Kudos to Lucia Whalen

My respect to Lucia Whalen, who did what any good neighbor should do: call the police when you see someone breaking into a neighbor’s home. Shame, shame on those who have treated her badly for this act of good will. … Continue reading

Bad Strategy Selling the Health Plan

Obama and his liberal-progressive cronies are pushing a health-care plan that will ration health care, progressively more as you age. It is a poor strategy, trying to sell something like that, when the baby-boomers (of which I am one) are … Continue reading

Synchronizing the iPhone

End of Life “Options”

The current version of the “health care” bill has a section on end-of-life, that is frightening. Read about it over at Bayou Renaissance Man’s site.   I don’t want bureaucrats deciding what medical care I may have, and I don’t want … Continue reading

Obama Has Lost It

Obama pledged…

Ha. In discussions about the health care reform bill, the biggest single issue is how to pay for it. Quote: Democrats insist the budget analysis ignores savings and Obama’s pledge not to add red ink to the federal ledger. Well, … Continue reading

Vacation was good, but now I’m back at work. For me, this was, in a way, an odd vacation. I almost simulated being retired for a week. We did make a few semi-local trips, but it was nice and relaxed; … Continue reading
