Episode 169 was one of those shouty affairs that happen once in a while. I had come across this article about how a doctor dopes children with anti-psychotics and ADHD drugs so their lazy parents and half-baked teachers won’t have to expend more than the minimal amount of effort to raise them and, well, it […]

Hallelujah, we got Episode 154 made, thanks to an eleventh-hour effort by Verizon to fix my internet connection after a seven day outage! The story of that sad week, and some related thoughts about how important the internet has become as a means of delivering basic information about the world around us, fills the first […]

What a Real War on Women Looks Like

It has become nearly an article of faith inside the Democratic Party and the MSM (a Venn diagram that consists of one large circle) that the Republicans have launched a “War on Women”. They have come to this belief because Republicans have, in a most dastardly fashion, said it is wrong for our government to […]

The CBO Says Tort Reform Will Save A Ton of Cash, But Who Has the Guts to Take On the Trial Lawyers?

Imagine you are a member of Congress and you have been presented with a fairly small piece of legislation. You get a report from the CBO that the proposal will: reduce the federal deficit by $5.4 billion every year for ten years, increase tax revenues by $1.3 billion every year for ten years, create an […]

I’m with Smitty on Mitt Romney. If Mitt Romney segues from a state governor with some experience in health care implementation to a Federalist warrior bent on restoring state’s rights, and implementing the Federalism Amendment, he’s got my support. I’ve seen a number of conservatives on Twitter who are ready to to toss Romney off […]

I posted the details of the story over at NTC News, but here’s the quick […]

I’ve been out at dinner with an old friend tonight, cooking up some choral mischief, which means that my normal blogging has suffered. I am not of such a caliber as to merit a fine minion who slings the Monty Python like my friend Stacy McCain so I must do my own link-o-rama. Luckily, I […]
