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.

The 68 year old homeowner did NOT go quietly into that ‘good night.’ A 68 year old man in Alabama opened fire on two home intruders Home Alone Last Thursday morning shortly after 10:00 am, December… Permalink to ‘Don't Screw With Old People – Alabama Read more

Don’t Ask the Obamas for Help Ya Dam Racists

Michelle Obama recently told People Magazine in an interviews titled The Obamas: How We Deal with Our Own Racist Experiences she was offended when she was approached by a shopper at an Alexandria, Virgina Target back in 2011 who, obviously not knowing… Permalink to ‘Don’t Ask the Obamas for Help Ya Dam Racists’ Read more

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 […] Read more

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 […] Read more

So, What About health Savings Accounts?

Last week, Sean Hannity introduced us (well, me anyway) to a wonderful gentleman named Ben Carson. Ben is a pediatric neurosurgeon (!!!), a pretty smart fella, soft-spoken yet convincing, and apparently very conservative (although, upon reflection, I’m not quite sure if you can categorize some of his ideas as either left or right leaning).

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. It’s just way too hard to make sense of any of this. The inmates are actually running the […] Read more

John Kerry Must Be Worth It, I Guess

Secretary of State “Why the Long Face?” John Kerry was under the protection of more security during his recent trip to Virginia than was deployed to Benghazi before last year's terrorist attack. 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 […] Read more

Are You Losing Your Health Coverage?

I had a conversation with a liberal a few months ago about Obamacare. I kept asking for him to explain how we’d pay for it, he kept telling me how he was excited a lot of underprivileged people would now have health care. I never got an answer and, needless to say, the “debate” went […] Read more

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 […] Read more

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 Read more

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, […] Read more
