Sarah Palin as quoted in the NYT

Sarah Palin as quoted in the NYT, “It’s the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest — to the little guys. It’s a slap in the face to our small business owners — the true entrepreneurs, the job creators accounting for 70 percent of the […]

Hoping Obama Fails: Why Rush Was Right

I remember the outrage in January of 2009 when Rush Limbaugh said on this show, “I hope Obama fails.”  It came back to me this month when Joe Scarborough, member of the 1994 Republican class, turned MSNBC sycophant said, I’m rooting for the President, we all are rooting for the President, if Rush Limbaugh is […]

T’was a Big Week for Space – Part 2

In part 1 of  “Space, The Statist’s Final Frontier”, I shared how ETs are going to save our economy…or at least how Paul Krugman thinks they could. In part two, we have two University of Pennsylvania profs and a guy from NASA who have written a paper about the likely scenarios if ETs decided to […]

SOTD: The Bodeans – Closer to Free

I’m thinking that this may be the official theme song for my podcast and radio show.  I just wish it wasn’t already the theme song to a d-baggy 90s TV show.

Yep, We’re Creatin’ Us Some Jobs Up In Here!

“It’s about jobs!” “We have to grow the economy!” We hear the lament on the news and in speeches every day.  In fact, the news is on in the background as I type and the President just talked about eliminating red tape and regulations.  But the truth is, politicians of both stripes speak with forked […]

T’was a Big Week for Space – Part 1

Wow.  Statists and collectivists we are in full-blown panic mode on several fronts.  Since their shrillness and predictions of doom, having lost their effect, they have turned to alien invasion as their scare tactic of last resort.  First we have an odd exchange on Fareed Zakaria‘s show where Paul Krugman actually suggests that an invasion […]

“Paying for Tax Cuts” is an Oxymoron

One of my pet peeves is the phrase , “paying for tax cuts”.  The phrase is an oxymoron and shameless fabrication used to gin up resentment and envy for nothing more than political gain. So a blog post, “Nearly 10 Years Ago Today, The U.S. Began Borrowing Billions To Pay For The Bush Tax Cuts” […]

But What Does It Say About Olby?

Keith Olbermann waxes poetic in the Guardian this week about getting fired by Rupert Murdoch at Fox Sports. From my vantage point, the most important fact remains that, after my exit, Rupert had to keep paying me not to have to work for him: $800,000 over the next eight months. It was the best job […]
