Here’s yet another disgusting display of bureaucratic arrogance on the part of the parasitical tax-and-spend state: spending $100M to “green” an old IRS center in Andover. As part of a “green” initiative that helped justify the use of stimulus money, geothermal heating and cooling systems will be installed, according to a news release from the [...]
Was this really on cable television? Yes, Dylan Ratigan said that Congress screws over some folks in order to enrich others in one of the great redistribution schemes of all time. He also refers to the Fed as perpetuating the largest wealth transfer in the history of the world, with no consequences. Bill Fleckenstein and [...]
I don’t come across many folks who aren’t aware of the state of the state of Michigan. We beat y’all to the Depression by a long shot, and I’m sure we will outlast everyone, too.

A Portland school recently banned hugging. …the principal of West Sylvan Middle School, Allison Couch, issued the ban because the hugging was so disruptive that students could not pass each other in the hallway without a hug and were often late to classes because of a lengthy embrace. Sometimes students would run down the hall [...]
Representative Hank Johnson is functionally illiterate. Watch a U.S. congressman question the Navy’s Pacific Fleet Commander and remark that he’s concerned that Guam will “tip over and capsize.” It takes him 3+ minutes to repeat the same things over and over, and make a point. Then he rambles on about global warming. And this guy [...]
