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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


What Part of Boolean Algebra Did You Not Understand?

I love rhetoric. I link to stuff here all the time that’s full of it (rhetoric that is), and I’m guilty of utilizing it myself. Maybe “guilty” isn’t the right word. I prefer “adept” to “guilty”, but it’s not my place to use that adjective. I blame it mostly on of Rhetoric in the Classical […]

Local Dustup Over “Indoctrination”

This one was pretty amusing…a “she said, she said” over whether or not gun permit instructors are “indoctrinating” people who show up for their courses. This one comes complete with removed content and closed comments–fun for everybody. It seems to me it would be awfully tough to indoctrinate adults who have made a decision on […]


Mortgage Bailout Bill? More Money for GM? They Can’t Be Serious

$75 Billion doesn’t sound like as much money now as it did back in September of last year. That’s when hundreds of billions first started being thrown out like beads at a Mardi Gras parade. Now all you have to do is prove that you have an ample level of moral fiscal depravity and the […]


Well, Here We Are *sigh*

Please, please tell me this guy is not typical. Talk to the President, get a Playstation 3 for Christmas…it’s all really about the same thing, huh? I think he made a wrong turn on the way to the Iron Maiden concert and ended up at the Obama rally. Ok, seriously…one thing you won’t hear me […]

This even trumps Viva Viagra.

Obama Melting Down Already?

A great post a National Review by Victor Davis Hanson This is quite serious. I can’t recall a similarly disastrous start in a half-century (far worse than Bill Clinton’s initial slips). Obama immediately must lower the hope-and-change rhetoric, ignore Reid/Pelosi, drop the therapy, and accept the tragic view that the world abroad is not misunderstood […]
