Clearing the Browser Tabs – Auld Lang Syne Friday Edition

One of my favorite songs is “Auld Lang Syne”, and the work on which it is based also happens to be one of my favorite poems. So far as I know, I’ve no Scottish blood in me, but when I read Burns, I wish I did. I’d be a bad blogger if I didn’t give […]

If this story is true, then a lot of public union officials and city workers people need to be in the dock. Soon. Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts — a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for […]

It seems like just a couple months ago, folks in my area of the country were dealing with the most snowfall we’ve had in over a century and a crushing loss by our beloved hometown Washington Capitals. Summer flew by, as did the Redskins’ hope for football […]

Fresh from his being turned out by the voters of New York, soon to be ex-Congressman John Hall could not resist one last lecture for us poor unlearned and unwashed masses. Unfortunately, what he probably intended as a history lesson turned out more like a lesson in histrionics (via memeorandum). In a wide-ranging interview before […]

I think SMP Mike really pegged the cover art for Episode 71. I don’t think I’ve ever been as fired up on the air as I was last night and I hope I didn’t sound too angry. Really, though, the foolishness I wrote about last night and talked about in the first half does make […]

You will either love or hate this week’s episode of The Delivery. I ranted a lot more than usual and my rant, at least in the first half, had an angry edge I don’t think I’ve ever had on the show. I’ll be interested to hear how it sounds myself. the link should come later […]

This is foolishness wrapped in stupidity tied up in a bow marked “political suicide”. Two of the nation’s premier moral issues organizations, the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America, are refusing to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference in February because a homosexual activist group, GOProud, has been invited. “We’ve been very involved […]

My “big” Christmas gift this year was a Kindle 3 and I must say that I’m incredibly impressed with it. My review pretty much squares with Moe Lane’s impressions, and I’ll have a bit more to say about it a little bit later, after I’ve had a chance to get a bit more familiar with […]

Ever since I determined that President Obama has replaced that “The Buck Stops Here” placard with one that says “You Don’t Ever Want A Crisis to Go to Waste” on the Resolute Desk, I’ve been on the lookout for The Culprit. You know who The Culprit is. It’s the person or group who is actually […]
