24 Season 1

Amazon Prime Video has the 1st season of 24 streaming for free. I’ve had it on in the background as I did other stuff.  It is amazing how dated it seems. It seemed so “cool” back then. And I forgot how much I hoped Jack Baur’s wife would get killed.  Boy is she irritating. By design? No idea. I don’t …

Occupy Kabul

Spot on… Right now, idealistic young Americans are gathered together to fight injustice and build a better world. Sure, they’re a little dirty, and maybe some of their language is a bit rough, but they’ve left behind family and friends, as well as the creature comforts the rest of us take for granted, to make a stand for what they …

Orrin Hatch really wants me to like him

  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my plan to fool gullible Utahans again. Orrin’s been a changed man since the Tea Party started. Why yesterday he even threw us gun enthusiasts a bone: Recognizing the need to revamp outdated and restrictive gun laws, U.S Senators Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) have introduced the Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform …

Just pay to hire

Probably not worth $1 an hour to me. RealClearMarkets ahs an interesting article advocating the ‘negative income tax’ as a way to make 30 million new jobs in 5 years. Another summer, with job growth lagging population growth? That’s bad. A closer look at the long-term historical data reveals something far more disturbing. We’re 30 million jobs short of full …

Irreconcilable opponents

When asked about Boehner playing golf with Obama,  Hank Williams Junior said this: “That’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu.” I didn’t take the remark as Obama being Hitler. I took it as a round of golf won’t help bring  irreconcilable opponents together.  I stopped watching Fox long ago. They are better than CNN, but that is like cold …

What can organized sports provide?

Advice to rip out your enemy’s heart!  And arrive with violence! They won… I don’t usually let politics guide my minute to minute thinking, but I couldn’t avoid thinking as I watched this that this coach probably voted for Obama (95% chance), who absolutely doesn’t want to hold his team (our country) to this standard. Do speeches like this work?  …

Actually… she’s part of the 49%

That actually pays taxes… The odd thing is that she posts to a site wanting MORE government.  Could she be so crass as to want more government but not to pay for it?  Hmmm… maybe. My suggestion… try marriage.  Maybe give estmen.com  a shot….then all this is HIS problem. (-: I left college with no debt and excellent job prospects …

Police shoot by-standers

  I regularly compete with three policemen that are excellent shots.  Three out of about 300 in our county (including city, county, and state and federal personnel). On occasion I see other police shooting, most recently at an all police match.  And it wasn’t pretty. They were better than the public, but not as good as they need to be …

Wrong

A Canadian woman strangles her baby. Murder – right? Nope. She got a suspended sentence for killing her child. And 16 days in jail for littering (putting the corpse in a neighbors yard). Although this hideous crime and wrong punishment happened in Canada you can envision similar happening here, can’t you?  In Vermont, or California, maybe New York. Places closer …

Led Zeppelin Lost Performances

Airships… Faster please

I hope someday, maybe soon, that most of the 18 wheelers rolling down the Interstate will be replaced with airships like this: Wouldn’t that be nice?  A stream of these things all chained together heading somewhere without tearing up our roads?   Imagine the money we would save by building roads that would last decades? Will it happen? I’ve no idea.  …

Obama’s Family Circus

  Who is the dunce in this story? http://takimag.com/article/the_obama_family_circus/print#axzz1X6ksy9BA Sure his family is full of leeches, illegal immigrants, and shysters. So Barry is the successful one, being only 2 out of 3 on those counts.  I’m convinced there story says more about us than him. We let them be illegal here. We let them drive drunk repeatedly. We PAY them …
