The “Evils” of Capitalism

I love this. I guess actions do speak louder than words. Or, I guess in this case, actions make the words speak LOUDER. It is soooo ironic that the most of the world is trending away from socialism towards capitalism, while ‘we’ are doing just the opposite. Look at the amazing prosperity of socialist Venezuela. […]

You Can Keep Your (Insurance Policy/Doctor), Can’t You?

I had it in my mind that I was going to avoid being too political, but I can’t help it now. Here’s a story… (By the way, I’m not going to use anyone’s name here. If you want to, you could do a couple searches and figure it out yourself, but it’s not my fault […]

Where’s My Yacht?

While I was pedalling into work this morning, I was listening to the morning show on KBOI radio. The talk of the day was all about “free” cell phones and other government waste. Wow. I had no idea how stupid this phone program is. Really opened my eyes. The original intent of the program was […]

The Republicans are S.O.L.

With all this talk about the sequester, and with Obama apparently wanting to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of income tax in America by giving us more of it, I’m finding myself pretty close to giving up.

John Kerry Must Be Worth It, I Guess

Makes ya kinda wonder, doesn’t it? On Kerry’s first day as head of the State Department, four agents were on hand when he […]

Shocking Failure?

Ah, the hybrid car. You know, people who have them seem to think they are the slickest thing since sliced bread. I don’t blame them though, the electronics alone are worthy of a NASA space mission. But, can the past crop of hybrid cars really be called “hybrid”? I remember many years ago when one […]

Can We Inflate Our Way Out of Debt?

Obama: We can’t cut our way into prosperity. Republicans: We can’t tax our way into prosperity. Man behind the curtain: Hey, why not inflate our way into prosperity? It’s a simple theory. If you have a lot of fixed costs (mortgage, car loans, student loans, credit cards, medical bills, etc.), and your income doubles, then your […]

Kwazy Superbowl – The Monday After

Wow, that SuperBowl was fun. Kaepernick looked like a rookie, we had an exciting power outage, the commercials were OK, and the game did not get out of hand. Actually, it’s been quite awhile since we had a boring lop-sided game. As I stated the other day – I had no horses in this race, […]
