My agenda is simple today. I have one project to finish at work, then I’m free and clear the rest of the day. So, if I can get that done by noon, I’ll be able to take the rest of the day off to enjoy what looks to be a scrumptious day. I plan to […]

Is Today My Birthday? House Votes to Defund the Czars

Is Today My Birthday? House Votes to Defund the Czars

Today must be my birthday. Somehow I wanged my head and was unconscious for a couple months and it’s now late April. How else to explain the wonderful gifts I’ve received today. The weather today was gloriously sunny and near 70 degrees; the progressive movement is falling apart and in near-panic mode thanks to several […]

In a day, the situation in Wisconsin has gone from merely ridiculous to bizarre. The state Senate was set to vote on Governor Walker’s “budget repair bill” except that all the Democrats were gone. Senate rules require a quorum of 20 and when the Republican Leader called the quorum, only the 19 Republicans showed up […]

The most exceptional thing has been happening in Wisconsin over the past few days. Governor Scott Walker has introduced a bill that will save the state about $300 million dollars over the next ten years – a sorely-needed chunk of slack in a budget that has, like so many other state budgets, gotten entirely out […]

I didn’t blog much yesterday because I was over at Hot Air doing a guest-blogging gig. You can read my two posts here and here. You may enjoy the second, on a gripping Rolling Stone interview with Justin Bieber a bit more than the first, which deals more with the coming budget fight. The commentariat […]

Episode 78 is ready for your listening and downloading pleasure. I’m rather pleased with how the show came out and a little bit surprised that I’ve taken to the long-form rant format as well as I have. Unlike a lot of radio and podcasts hosts, I don’t like to yell at my listeners. When I […]

The President released his budget this week and holy cow is it a monster. The outcry against it was so loud that he scheduled a press conference today to explain how it wasn’t nearly as bad as we think it is. It didn’t help, even with an extra helping of fear-mongering. In the end, Steve […]

I guess if you don’t like what the messenger is about to say, you can always attack the messenger. Wait, did I say attack? What I meant was clumsily threaten and intimidate. Democrats are understandably obsessed with Darrell Issa — he’s built himself up as a one-man investigative machine aimed straight at the Obama presidency. But […]

Monday was the day Winter lost its hold on us. Sure, it’ll be cold for just a little while longer, but Winter is beaten and, believe me, it knows. The temps approached 70 degrees yesterday, with a high warm sun and plenty of springtime breezes that became Winter’s last gusty rages as the day wore […]

I should have posted Episode 77 several days ago, but for reasons that mostly involved getting ready for CPAC, it completely slipped my mind. That’s a shame because, I think, it was a heck of a pre-CPAC show. It can hold up nicely as a post-conference show, so be sure to listen, but I wish […]
