Same City, Same Story

Thursday, June 24, 2004 23:00 Comments Off

Detroit Murder City makes the headlines again. Nine people were shot at North America’s biggest fireworks show, in downtown Detroit. I long ago ceased going to this event because of these types of problems. Who can forget the world-famous incident at the 1991 fireworks? The view from home, 6 miles north, on channel 4, was [...]

Bush – God of the Economy

Thursday, June 24, 2004 19:18 Comments Off

I have zero tolerance for Republican Worshippers anymore. Today, on Rush Limbaugh’s show, Tom Sullivan was the guest host. Listening while working, and jotting down notes, I was stunnd – stunned, I say! – by the incoherent, braindead analysis of the economy spouted by this Tom Sullivan individual. Sullivan was talking about a national survey [...]

James Grant on the Bond Swing

Tuesday, June 22, 2004 21:26 Comments Off

Grant on bond yields. What conceivable circumstances could provide the undergirding for a new, generational bear bond market ahead? One possibility is the long-prophesied train wreck of federal finances, notably of Medicare.

Why Do I Find This Funny?

Tuesday, June 22, 2004 21:11 Comments Off

I don’t know, but I do. The stupidist things do become “popular.” I agree on light beer, piercing of the private parts, California, Unintended Consequences, by John Ross, any novel by John Grisham, Sex In The City, buffalo wings, and tattoos. A few additions could be: – chardonnay (overrated, nasty plonk wine) – crop tops [...]

From WorldNetDaily: President Bush plans to unveil next month a sweeping mental health initiative that recommends screening for every citizen and promotes the use of expensive antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs favored by supporters of the administration.

Boo-Hoo, Snivel, Whine

Sunday, June 20, 2004 9:51 Comments Off

Ahhh, this morning, TG alerted me to another Piston-o-Diss (and KDC diss) from my fellow libertarian, The Jackass. Whenever the Lakers (or Laker fans) start boo-hoo’ing, or the Pistons get dissed as “boring,” the Piston-o-Diss meter takes another swing. Or shall I call it the Whine Index? As to boring, if Shaq getting fed the [...]

Rush on Censoring and the Media

Sunday, June 20, 2004 7:57 Comments Off

Censor the anti-war dissenters (and in fact, send them to the brig), but don’t dare censore me. Arbitrary First Amendment rights Rush?

Boortz Bellows, But Gets One Thing Right

Sunday, June 20, 2004 7:49 Comments Off

Neal Boortz, in his latest column, tells his Libertarian Party detractors to stick it. Says Neal: It seems that some fellow Libertarians didn’t exactly approve of my support for the liberation of Iraq. The quest for Libertarian ideological purity raises its ugly head. As most people know, Boortz was a speaker at the recent LP [...]

Does anyone hear the sound of Halliburton – the State’s favorite child of deceit – tumbling down a slippery backslope? I do.
