So today I received a “One question poll” on which Democratic accomplishments make me the most proud. Let’s examine these a little more closely. Health Care Reform: You mean Romneycare 2.0? I concede that Obamacare is an improvement over what we had. However, it still “fixes” the problem by forcing us to do business with […]
So, I got an email from “the White House” titled “Protecting one of America’s most beautiful places”. It included a link to this item on protecting the Arctic Refuge. I immediately thought of another beautiful thing in America I’d like to see protected: The Bill of Rights, specifically the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. That is, […]
The President characterized the Trans Pacific Partnership as “Americans writing the rules.” It would have been more accurate to say corporations writing the rules. I did like how he dealt with Republican clapping when he announced that he’d run his last election. I wonder if maybe he didn’t ask Senator Franken for some tips on dealing […]
Believe it or not, there are people who think President Obama is liberal. Isn’t that a good laugh? In Closing: miscarriage; I already said this; measles; and beavers…. with parachutes.
In Closing: Pardon me; the Music Man; no new ideas; dangerous jobs; a pretty cool boat; a family affair; on hacking; ride-bys; affordable; I thought this would happen; and weird museums.

Obama: Apparently somebody else realized that the guy is a tweak to the right of Nixon. Oh yeah, and how dare he actually work with others around the world rather than just telling them all how […]
Ok, I know why some of you are here: to get your sweet sweet dose of NSA links. Turns out not: There’s no shortage of STEM workers. There may, however, be a shortage of STEM workers who want to work for crappy wages. Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me: Which of these inventions is likely to be […]
The problem with the unexpected is that, well, it’s unexpected. A decade ago, some guy was running for Senate in Illinois as a Democrat. I’m not sure anybody thought he had a chance — after all, he’d already lost in a bid for a seat in the House — until the unexpected happened. In this case, […]
Ok, the Bundy thing is still going on, and I do appreciate that it’s a local news story with national coverage. Not sure why anybody cares who says what about him on Facebook. However, while all of us are watching the circus, here’s 5 things we’re not paying attention to: The President is in […]
