See What Happens When I Have A Life?

I had a few errands to which I needed to attend today, so I was generally away from the computer and my RSS reader. Apparently, while I’ve been away, the mice have most definitely played. For instance, it seems that two of the hottest traffic-driving posts of the week are Stacy McCain’s “Carrie Prejean Nude” […]

According to Robert Gibbs, the White House has graciously decided to release one whole photograph along with its review of the incident. One. That’s it. That’s all we […]

Reuters is reporting that the number of confirmed swine flu cases has reached 109. This will no doubt cause folks to run around screaming about pandemics and, somewhere, Stephen King is getting just the tiniest bit nervous. I just want to help keep things in perspective. The Census Bureau estimates the population of the United […]

Blogging was light today, mostly because I spent some time getting caught up on other tasks I’ve let slide lately. Also, I went to my first ballgame of the year tonight. The home team lost 10-6, but the fireworks were pretty sweet (though short). Our trip into the archives tonight goes back two years. I’ve […]

Yearly Celebration Week kicks off with a couple oldies but goodies from this time last year. As it happens, I wasn’t feeling particularly political one evening and decided to try my hand at reviewing some music. Here’s what came out, and here’s how I finished up. Now, since these are Police songs, you won’t find […]

This week, or at least the next few days, is kind of a big deal around these parts. See, April 26th will mark the fifth anniversary of The Sundries Shack. Two days later, April 28th, will be my birthday. I’ll be 41 for those of you keeping score — on the downslope side of “over […]

Today is Earth Day (and Lenin’s Birthday, which I don’t see as a particular coincidence as well as the birthday of St. Francis of Assisi, which is more what I think our enviro-happy friends intended for the day) which means that we will again be harangued with lectured from our betters about what a bunch […]

The Picture Every American Should See

If you’re really curious why hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans would take to the streets in protest of this President’s policies, I can explain in one picture. When the left and their MSM brethren complain that protesters are hypocritical because they didn’t march against President Bush’s deficits, well, this picture shows you why. Compared […]

Tax Day Tea Party Roundup (With Links, and Rove!)

| April 16, 2009 | 9 Replies

Yesterday’s Tax Day Tea Parties were a smashing success. There were no reports of any arrests that I could find. No stores were looted. No police officers were harassed or threatened. In fact, the one instance where authories had to take action — in Washington, DC where an unknown participant threw a box of tea […]
