Congressional candidate

Yesterday was a frosty morning in Tucson - a very rare occurrence.  Some of our citizens were unfamiliar with the concept of ice on the windshield.  At the stop sign near our house, my dog and I watched as a man in a Chevy slowly approached the intersection.  His windshield was ice-covered.  He obviously couldn't see, but he was moving … Continue reading Congressional candidate

I think I’ll Keep my Gun

Listening to the talking heads chattering about remarks made by Bob Costas about handgun restrictions.  He was speaking on a football broadcast on the day following a tragic murder-suicide involving a football player. Tragic as it is when innocent folks get shot, I continue to believe it is more dangerous to allow the govrnment to … Continue reading I think I’ll Keep my Gun

Go Occupy Somewhere Else

Just a few thoughts from watching the protestors on Wall Street and their spawn in other venues.  I am struck by the lack of respect for property they seem to reflect.  Then it dawns on me that they have no respect for private property and that is part of their world view.  They want govenment to … Continue reading Go Occupy Somewhere Else

Are You Just Stupid Like Rick?

I see by the morning gab that I am supposed to dislike Rick Perry because he is stupid.  We know this because he said that it would be almost treasonous to print fiat currency for the sole purpose of manipulating an election in the middle of a national crisis.  Then he implied that he thinks … Continue reading Are You Just Stupid Like Rick?

We don’t have a “jobs” problem

So we have a massive shortage of apples in our country.  If we want apples we have two basic choices. We can buy or borrow apples and place them around the country.  If we want to maintain the illusion that we are producing apples, we can simply hang them in trees and let folks come … Continue reading We don’t have a “jobs” problem

Can We Govern Ourselves?

I am struck by the outbreaks of violence world-wide.  London, Lybia, Syria, Spain, Greece, and even China have had mass protests turning violent in the last few days.  That, of course, leaves out our own beloved Philadelphia.  The British response is remarkably restrained.  It took them several days to decide to use water cannons and … Continue reading Can We Govern Ourselves?

Who do you want in charge?

I noticed this week that the National Football League and the players manged to hash out an agreement over which of the rich people would get the most money.  One day they met for over 13 hours.  When they were interviewed they were generally discrete, respectful, and professional.  These are guys who get paid to run into each other in … Continue reading Who do you want in charge?
