Clearing the Browser Tabs - Why Does California Hurt Its People Thursday Edition

| June 30, 2011 | Comments (5)

What is it with Democrats and their desire to wring every possible cent of tax money out of the people they govern? California has become the latest blue state which legislature has cast its rapacious glance upon Google’s considerable revenues and decided it needs to tax the bejeezus out of it. The state’s government just [...]

The Delivery Presents - The Pot Calls the Kettle Gaffetastic

When I started The Delivery almost two years ago, I confess I gave some thought to what I might do for Episode 100. I didn’t have big plans, but I wanted to make a splash, like Wendy and Mike did when they got Mark Steyn to take over the 50th episode of Brass Balls Radio. [...]

Clearing the Browser Tabs - Don’t Ask Don’t Leak Wednesday Edition

| June 29, 2011 | Comments (0)

Remember the misleading story the Washington Post published just before last November’s election about soldiers’ attitudes toward the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy? That story ended up getting covered better than did the study itself (which conclusions were not quite what the WaPo said they were) and contributed greatly to Congress’ lifting the policy.

I’m going to put two stories above the links here because they’re both big and they are, in a way, related to each other. First, read Doug Ross article on the administration’s plan to send undercover rats “secret shoppers” into physicians’ offices to see which doctors will take Medicare patients and which will not.

Hang Your Heads, New Orleanians, For Your Beloved Ex-Mayor Has Beclowned You. Again.

What a wonderful representative for the city of New Orleans former Mayor Ray Nagin turned out to be, huh? Not only did he botch the city’s response before, during, and after Hurrican Katrina about as badly as it could have been botched, but he’s also one heck of a conspiracy theorist. The former mayor of [...]

Clearing the Browser Tabs - We Can’t Afford To Do It His Way Monday Edition

| June 27, 2011 | Comments (0)

Contrary to what the President believes, we can “simply cut our way to prosperity”. The alternative — spending our way to prosperity — has been a miserable failure that has cost us and our children over $3 billion and “saved or created” jobs as a stunning million dollars a pop.

A Little Night Music to Take You Back: “Inchworm”

| June 27, 2011 | Comments (0)

How about a video? Here’s “Inchworm”, an old Sesame Street classic. Just because. My Mom used to sing this song to me when I was young and, sometimes, I’d sing the counterpoint melody — the part with the math. I still have days and nights, even as a grizzled adult, when I want my Mom [...]
