Taxing Times

“Sometimes a concept is baffling not because it is profound but because it is wrong.” – E. O. Wilson Everybody should be against higher taxes. I make that statement as a declarative for all across the entire political spectrum who are disappointed in the actions of our political class. The right decries cronyism, government bailouts…

Missing Mississippi

I miss reading the posts from our host with the most. I thought I could cheer you up with the Scottish twins, Charlie and Craig. They are called The Proclaimers. Hmmm……. I can’t seem to distance myself from twins. I’m surrounded by them….literally. Not to bitch and moan, but the sisters are twins, one of…

Dedication

I just wanted to dedicate a song to you boys. Hopefully, in between your manicures and waxings, you’ll have time to listen. This is sung by Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat.

He was just looking for something else to steal…

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the senseless murder of Amanda Price and the shooting of her husband, my hometown high school football coach, Ronnie Price. Yesterday, it was announced that the assailant was arrested and charged with capital murder. The reason: According to law enforcement officials, “He was just looking for something else…

More Math

Kells + Technology = Disaster. Most of my friends can attest that by some ridiculous and unforeseen force of nature, I happen to be a bit technologically challenged. Now, I’m no Einstein, but sometimes, I do believe, a positive can be produced from a negative. Let me explain….. A few months back, my husband bought…

One Picture = 1,000 Words

This Michael Ramirez editorial cartoon fits that description. The double standards  and serial dumbassery in today’s society are almost unbearable. Students suspended for “Tebowing” (if this is an issue, wonder how they handle Muslims praying the required 5 times a day), the White House calling the Fort Hood massacre a incident of “workplace violence”, a…

Crazy Ron

Earning that nickname every day: From ABC’s The Note: Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” the presidential hopeful took a swipe at his GOP rivals telling the crowd that Michele Bachmann “hates Muslims.” When asked by host Jay Leno what he thought of his rivals, Paul shook his head, slowed his voice and…

WASHINGTON — The Securities and Exchange Commission has brought civil fraud charges against six former top executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying they misled the government and taxpayers about risky subprime mortgages the mortgage giants held during the housing bust.

Rule 5 Friday – Shelley Conn

You have seen her recently in the new Amercian SciFi/fantasy series Terra Nova as Dr. Elizabeth Shannon but once you see her face, you will remember her from several movies and TV shows. I saw her a year or so ago in a great British TV series called Strike Back as Danni Prendiville, an officer…

A Little Night Music

So I’ve been driving around singing this number and scaring the hell out of fellow drivers and pedestrians whilst I do, but it got me to thinking (never a good thing) Hey! What if people had a bit of knowledge about the piece that I’m caterwauling? Well, hell, If Dave Ramsey can do baby steps,…

The Ungovernable Man

Do you ever wonder why we seem to “need” so much government (and I use the word “need” a bit sarcastically)? Why does it seem that there are movements out there everywhere trying to regulate every aspect of our lives? I think it is because the American free society has lost its ability to control…

Dude Looks Like A Lady

A disaster of biblical proportions? Dogs and cats living together! Dude looks like a lady…this is a guy by the name of Andrej Pejic. The company’s decision to have a man front the campaign appears to have paid off – as his natural cleavage-free physique is visibly enhanced by their ‘boosting’ bra. The images, featuring…

Rule 5 Wednesday – Fringe Division – Anna Torv

Hump day brings us the lovely Anna Torv, a beautiful Aussie lass who, in  2008, broke into US television as she was cast as FBI agent Olivia Dunham opposite Joshua Jackson in the FOX drama Fringe. Anna was born in Melbourne and moved to Sydney, but she spent her teen years on the Gold Coast.…

FDR’s New Deal Was Full Of Male Bovine Fecal Material

This mini-documentary from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation explains how the statist policies of Presidents Hoover and Roosevelt lengthened and deepened the Great Depression. The video also briefly explains how reductions in the burden of government spending helped the economy recover from a deep recession after World War I and to grow after…

Scream IV

Stacy McCain writes about Obama’s 60 Minutes group hug last night that Barack Obama’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview Has Me Screaming at My TV Again. One thing about Stacy – he is a better man than I am because for him to be screaming again would imply that he was able to stop at some point.…
