“Duh” and Yikes!

Friday, June 26, 2009 16:13 5 Comments

This thing scares me. In spite of some agreeable points (on Big Pharma, health screening, and the bankrupt American empire), it’s very unsophisticated and completely unsupported by any facts or robust commentary. #3 reads “Modern Society is Unsustainable.”  Yes, the word “population bubble” is used. This should have never been written.

The Medical Establishment and Bad Advice

Friday, June 26, 2009 15:43 2 Comments

This has always perplexed me. That people will take up insane medical advice and choose the quickest, easiest way to what they perceive as “good health.” Women are getting their breasts chopped off as a cancer preventative. Lifestyle changes – mainly food choices – are just too much trouble and require too much discipline. In general, [...]

Bachmann vs Palin

Friday, June 26, 2009 14:50 4 Comments

Someone in Minnesota doesn’t seem to like my reference to Palin as a “trained monkey.” One of the comments below the article ‘splains her well: “Palin is no good without rehearsed talking points and one-liners. She sounds like a soccer mom who’s out of her league when she attempts to defend conservative principles against Left wing [...]

Substandard Chrysler

Friday, June 26, 2009 13:51 9 Comments

The “New” Chrysler will be every bit as bad – no worse! – than the “Old” Chrysler. I’m still looking and thinking about that new vehicle, when the time is right, and none of my first 5, 10, … or 100 choices are an American-made car. Now, that door of possibility – if there was [...]

Got Car. Have Shredder?

Wednesday, June 24, 2009 21:30 1 Comment

Life under Barack Obamikka is surreal at times. I went over to the government’s cash-for-clunkers site and looked at the eight pages of rules that one must plow through in order to understand the program’s eligibility requirements. My favorite part is the disposal and shredding/crushing requirements for cars turned in. A small bite: (C) COORDINATION- The [...]

More Corporate State Shenanigans

Wednesday, June 24, 2009 21:28 1 Comment

Creditors of Protein Sciences Corporation (of Meriden, Connecticut) filed an involuntary Chapter 7 petition to force the company into bankruptcy and liquidation. A day later, the U.S. government announced a $35 million federal contract for Protein Sciences Corp. “to develop a faster way to make vaccines for pandemic influenza.” How did this come about? Connecticut Senator [...]

Suze Orman Didn’t Attend Mises University

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 19:17 3 Comments

Amazing interview in U.S News and World Report. The first question is priceless. Interviewer: What surprised you most about the current financial crisis? Suze: That it happened at all. Surprised at that response? On what did she blame the general lack of foresight? CEOs who “went on television and looked in the cameras and told [...]

FTC Wants to Regulate Blogging

Tuesday, June 23, 2009 19:16 3 Comments

Skip Oliva just tipped me off to this insanity. Under the guise of protecting Americans from unsound and amateur product advice (reviews, recommendations, etc.), the FTC wants take control of the blogosphere. This, of course, is a maneuver the government has long sought so it can effectively turn off the uncontrollable competition to benefit its [...]
