I’m Over Here Now

Obviously, there’s been a slowdown of posts here over the last few months. Posting here is going to probably going to remain slow for and maybe get even slower. Lately I’ve been posting over at scottadcox.com for the most part. The posts there are shorter, more snarky, and even less on topic. I’ve had less […]

Atlas Shrugged Creeping Into North Knoxville!

WBIR did a story on my buddy McNabb’s office/residential building he’s been working on. He bought this horrible looking building on Broadway a couple of years ago, and he’s put a lot of hard work into it. I was over there about a month ago to see the almost complete office space. He’s also putting […]


Francisco d’Anconia – My Mind On My Money

…and my money on my mind. Whether you’ve read his speech from Atlas Shrugged or not, it’s worth reading the whole thing (again). When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see […]


Brilliant Republican Strategy

Well, this should make everything ok. A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the “Democrat Socialist Party.” Seriously? Are they smoking crack? That’s all they can come up with? It follows logically […]


Comments Off on Paying For Public Health Care

Paying For Public Health Care

This makes me chuckle. There’s already talk of where taxes will be raised to pay for a national health care plan. Tobacco, alcohol, soft drinks, employer health plans, and HSAs are all being discussed. All the big gov’ment advocates are going to be in for a rude awakening when they realize that all of these […]

My Kind of Change

These are actually pretty fitting…”more of the same”. Making change actually sounds like a better business model than printing and giving away money.

Knoxville Overground Spring Gala Fundraiser

This one is truly over ground. Tomorrow night KO is hosting a gala on the 6th floor of the Sunsphere (that’s one floor above the Wig Shop). The public is welcomed to attend, just a cool $25, but there is a limit to only 120 guests. Official KO members, KO sponsors, and members of KO […]


Fogerty

Sometimes it only takes one word for you to know exactly what you are gonna get. It reminds me of a story… I went to see a Credence Clearwater Revival tribute band with my buddy Half once. In between sets one of the band members was standing near us at the bar, and Half struck […]


Explain the Logic Please

So I was listening to Boortz this morning and a guy calls in and defends his voting for Barack Obama. The reason…you’re going to love this…is that George Bush passed Medicare Part D, which the caller considers socialism. Bully for him for being critical of the crap the Bush administration pushed on us for 8 […]


Swine Flu in Knoxville at Bearden High School?

Just read djuggler’s tweet saying Bearden High School will be closed for a week. And his better half, cathymccaughan says, What good does it do to close the high school when the teens will be at the mall or movies every day? Just curious…do they close schools when someone gets the regular flu? It appears […]
