Toyota to “Apologize” to the U.S. Political Establishment

Tuesday, February 23, 2010 7:16 5 Comments

A Wall Street Journal “news alert” this morning reads, “Toyota’s U.S. Chief to Apologize in House Testimony.” Toyota will grovel at the feet of totalitarians who put up the front that they are acting in the interest of American citizens.

On the blog, David Kramer links to a story about Prozac and its use for ….. dogs.

Sunday, February 21, 2010 7:28 1 Comment

Yet every scheme comes with a proclamation that says, “your government is looking to help you secure your retirement and your future.” Even the sheeple are offering resistance to this one. I’ve been covering the topic of government-mandated 401Ks since the fall of 2008, and I even noted that I detected the unmistakable whiff of [...]

Newsweek has put together a “Tax Attacks” propaganda piece. The gist of this piece is that Joseph Stack was one of many violent protesters who “believed taxes are unjustified,” and thus reacted with violent actions. Of course, anyone who believes that taxes are unjustified necessarily gets lumped in with all of the mad bombers, shooters, [...]

How the State Destroys Your Banking Relationships

Thursday, February 18, 2010 6:17 9 Comments

I caused a scene at the credit union last week. I use a neighborhood credit union that is old-fashioned and still offers personalized service. I’ve had an account there since I was five.

Today I was alerted to this older post – from 2007 – on Mark Sisson’s blog. It’s a very interesting post about Mark’s experience at a health retreat spearheaded by the vegetarian guru Dr. John McDougall.

South of the Border, Eh?

Thursday, February 11, 2010 21:40 6 Comments

I heard this on the radio last week and it was really downplayed throughout the media – except by FOX, of course. Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams is scheduled for heart surgery in the United States, a move that throws into question his province’s and his nation’s health-care system. Oh, and that’s surprising? Today, the news [...]
