I have not said a whole lot about the bailout because there is just so much to this and I haven’t had time to put it all together in a post. There was also a lot going on and the final solution was still coming together. Now that the bill failed in the House yesterday, […]

I know that stocks are tumbling. I know that the House voted down the bailout. I know that the entire US economy is on the verge collapse. Whatever. Let’s talk about something important, here. Can we all agree that we want US companies to get the heck out of China and stop poisoning us? Can […]

I thought this was funny. I found it on My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. It came from one of those chain e-mails. I swear, I need to get some conservative friends because I never get any of this stuff. “I was talking to a friend of mine’s little girl, and she said she wanted to […]

From an editorial in the The Free Lance-Star: NOT ALL COUNTRIES guarantee their citizens the right to virtually unbridled freedom of speech. The United States does. Would someone please tell the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama? And the dozing guardians of liberty at the University of Mary Washington? This comes no where near the Obama […]

I declare McCain the winner because for the first time ever, my husband said he is voting for McCain. Granted, he would never vote for Obama, but he has now vowed to never call McCain McSame again! That is no small victory. I think that McCain did very well. He started out strong and really […]

This is pretty scary. Obama on the first amendment: Send out law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign. If this doesn’t bother you, it should. The truth is relative. Ask Obama if he supports the 2nd amendment, he’ll say “yes!” Ask someone like Jeff Soyer […]

So the surprising news this morning was that the Democrats and Bush agree on the terms of the bailout, but the Republicans are not on board. People are shocked at this! Conventional wisdom says that this type of bi-partisanship (Republican president, Democratic congress) means that the bill must be a good idea. So, why aren’t […]

Gee, I have to ask, if Sarah Palin is so darn unqualified to be vice president, then why does the left have to make up things to criticize her about? At some point, I would love to do a full run-down of all of the anti-Palin untruths, and there are many, but for now, I’ll […]

I want to take a break from the election and the economy and focus on something else for a post. In today’s Burlington Free Press, the results for the state science tests were published and Vermont students did not do well. Bear in mind that these are the tests that were designed by Vermont teachers […]

If only someone could have known the danger that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae held for our entire economy. Oh, wait… It’s only 3 minutes. It is worth watching. I have so much to say about this, but it will have to wait until later. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, but […]
