Aggressive Police Cars

Saturday, November 24, 2007 8:00 Comments Off

This story caught my eye this morning. It fits in nicely with my article about ugly, aggressively-styled cars and my blog post about totalitarian cops. The new Charger is just one of many of DaimlerChrysler’s ugly, boxy, aggressive-looking yahoo-mobiles. As the cops have become more of a show of force, their cars get more aggressive [...]

Men Ain’t Mommies

Lew Rockwell links to this article, with a headline that says, “Get a job.” Ahem. Whatever questions the study answers, the better question is: why do men want to stay home to nurture children full-time, and why do their women want to support them? Every case I’ve ever known personally has been a case of [...]

The Kind of Thing I Hate

Crap like this. These people piss me off. I was the one who initially blogged on the Paul Krugman comments about Ron Paul and his opposition to Sarbanes-Oxley. The next day, this guy, who calls himself a “commentator and analyst,” blogs the same thing on his own blog, and parallels exactly what I said while [...]

Paul Krugman: “Ron Paul is a Friend of Corporate Fraud”

Thursday, November 22, 2007 18:15 Comments Off

Krugman claims to have been researching some stuff for tomorrow’s column (on Ron Paul?) and came across the startling revelation that Ron Paul opposes one of the most obvious enemies of business in America: Sarbanes-Oxley. (How dare he do so!) Krugman, of [...]

They murdered a family pet – a guinea pig – and shattered windows, destroyed personal belongings, and contaminated the entire apartment by leaving CS gas/poison everywhere. A neighbor (a soldier who clears land mines) who witnessed the whole thing said it was “overpowering,” and they “seemed to enjoy doing it.” What was the police department’s [...]

“You Are Undermining the Value of American Currency”

Wednesday, November 21, 2007 7:53 Comments Off

Larry Kudlow gets it mostly right, but listen to the shrieking guy (from Forbes magazine) at the end. He hilariously accuses the Liberty Dollar folks of “undermining the value of American currency.” Shrieking Guy is amazed that Amercians would dare believe that the government’s money is fake and thus want to substitute gold or silver.

SEC: The Great Overseer Fails in Oversight of Self

Monday, November 19, 2007 22:16 Comments Off

Today it was announced that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had a material weakness in the internal controls over its financial reporting. The SEC avoided a big fat “E” last year via its remediation of internal control problems, but this year the SEC’s material weaknesses included control deficiencies related to its accounts receivable balances, [...]

See Fannie Fall
