Give Me Mo Brooks

U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (Rep. AL) took on MSNBC news anchor Contessa Brewer today. This is priceless. For the full interview in context, go here. Brewer was trying to explain to Rep. Brooks that we would be in a “depression” if not for salvational force of the bailouts! This, predictably so, led Rep. Brooks to […]

June 11-17: Week Miscellany

News cycles seem to go around and around. Some of it is new and pointless and some of it is just plain old. Malcolm Muggeridge couldn’t have been more right when he said, “All new news is old news happening to new people.” Sometimes I feel like the news media operates a bit like this: […]

This Weeks Miscellany

Some news items don’t deserve a full post. They’d be boring, or there’s just not that much to them. So this post is dedicated to all the midget stories — excuse me: Little news items. ITEM — Smucker’s in a Jam: This one is basically here because of the epic pun. J.M. Smucker Co. profits […]

Environmentalist Green-Necks Who Cling to Their Owls and Guns

The Great Spotted Owl: A monument for environmentalism! As with the justification for most monuments, this one comes at a high price. Rewind your watches 20 years and sit on grandpa’s knee as he tells you about the great ol’ Spotty. You see, ol’ Spotty was in bad trouble — real bad trouble — the […]

Erratic and Obstreporous

What’s been in the news lately? Well, lets take a look. Obama is still trying to sell his bogus budget plan. Obama wants to punish wealth-creating people by making them pay more in social security. Obama tells us (again) he’s not going to let us drill for our own oil, while he continues to fund […]

Antediluvian Technology

When the doctors told my great-grandpa (who was in his late 90’s at the time) that he had arthritis, he stood up and declared: “That’s impossible, arthritis is for old people!” Apple and Facebook, like arthritis, are for old people. Some interesting new data came out this week about who favors (buys) which phone OS. […]

DON’T PANIC: Your Chocolate is Safe

The Daily Mail recently asked “Will there be a chocolate drought?” suggesting that the worlds supply of chocolate might run out by 2014. Do not be alarmed, this is an absurd suggestion. First of all the article cited that 40% of the worlds cocoa bean supply comes from the Ivory Coast, which is politically unstable […]

Innocent Criminals

Arizona’s new immigration law has brought the nation to it’s feet, either cheering, or trying to find a tomato to throw. The state’s new law would ban sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws, makes the penalties on illegal day laborers and their employers more strict, charges immigrants with a misdemeanor if they do […]

The Fool in April

Every year, somebody has to do it, somebody has to make some unbelievable (yet most of the time, funny) joke on the first of April. Let’s have some fun. Nixon Comes for Seconds: In 1992, National Public Radio (NPR) in their show Talk of the Nation announced that previous-President Richard Nixon, was going to run […]

Let it Snow!

I hope all of those world leaders at Copenhagen (to talk about global warming) brought their big coats and snow boots. Why would they do that? There supposed to be talking about global warming, right? Well, Bloomberg reported yesterday that, overnight, 4 inches of snow was heaved upon Denmark (where the talks are being held). […]
