The Scary Speech To School Kids

Hold on. Everybody take a deep breath. Feel better? Ok, I’m going to have to ask some of you to be honest with yourselves for just a second…wasn’t this really a completely partisan reaction? I mean, I understand not wanting your kids to be indoctrinated by socialists. Seriously, I do. I just don’t get why […]


The One On Health Care

Was talking to a lefty err…progressive buddy of mine tonight, and he brought up something that is too, too true… Whatever ends up being passed it will suck. I don’t think anything will pass. At least I hope not. I’d like to see the market for HSAs opened up to lower deductible insurance policies first. […]

Cap and Tax Thoughts

Are real estate values in moderate climates about to climb? Is there a publicly traded company that makes wood burning stoves? What are we going to do about the inevitable deforestation that will take place when people switch to wood burning stoves so they can afford to stay warm? Won’t that mean fewer trees to […]

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 […]

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 […]


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 […]

Sometime I Wonder About You

The current poll asks for your Waffle House hash browns order. So far, seven people have voted, but only three have included “scattered” in their options. Uh…can you get hash browns at Waffle House that aren’t scattered? I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. Carry on.


Just Wait Until Football Season!

November is right in the middle of football season, right? I’m assuming it was November when this mental specimen was elected. You laugh, but I’d actually like to encourage Congress to spend more time doing stuff like this and less time, you know,  legislating. We can limit their damage by relegating them to doing school […]


How To Spot Tea Party Infiltrators

Roger Simon says to look for those exhibiting the most extreme behavior. I have some other “lefty” indicators to share with you. Watch for the people who show up late. If the Tea Party you are attending is early in the morning, there’s a good chance it won’t be infiltrated at all. Smokers. They’ll also […]


Things I Wonder About

Why is a tax credit for home purchases only good for first time home buyers? Wouldn’t making it available to everyone lure even more people into the market? Doctors, lawyers, engineers, car salesmen, politicians, school teachers, reporters…the list goes on and on.  Is there any profession out there that isn’t loathed by anyone? I’d say […]
