Traditionally, we embrace the New Year as a time of renewal –
nothing shocking in that. And we often see it that way personally,
as well as on a larger scale. That can at times mean a business, a
family, even a nation, it seems to me.
If you intend any personal...
In light of the Blago appointment controversy, some may recall
Harry Reid sending a letter to Rush
Limbaugh falsely accusing Limbaugh of demeaning our
troops. Rush used the foolhardy letter to demean and
diminish Reid and raise over $2 Million for our troops on
To much fanfare, Reid recently issued another letter,...
Interesting that Blago's General Counsel has resigned. Maybe he
took a deal from the Feds to save his own butt. But a serious
question to the more lawyerly among us.
Blago plans on fighting the current charges, as well as
impeachment. If I understand it correctly, Blago's constitutional
Blago is starting to look like Obama's crazy uncle who
stopped in for the Holidays and is now refusing to leave. Let's see – did his
Senate appointee Burris raise money for Blago, along with not being
able to win in several primaries? Check!
Is lily white Harry Reid poised to...
Disgraced former lawmaker and Green Party presidential
candidate Cynthia McKinny was reported to have been
observed smoking a cigarette and trying to relax in the boat's
lounge after a provocative encounter with several Israeli sailors
from a patrol boat. Reports suggest that as McKinney was carrying a
cell phone, she was viewed as a...
As for bailouts, another $6 Billion for car companies thanks to
Treasury, I guess. Is it even newsworthy at this point?
Arguably one of the worst, though subtle, impacts of
today's bailout culture hit me on the head while listening to a
non-bailout related news item on the car radio last night.
I don't mean this so much as touting my own horn. I
don't claim to be an expert but did take the time to consider
several opinions I respect before claiming the kind of shift in the
landscape we're going to see from the economic downturn some
Oh, just how rich is this? Old morons never die, they
just fade away until someone gives them a new soapbox at HuffPo.
The sending of a Christmas greeting by Chip Saltsman to the
members of the Republican National Committee that includes a
recording of the so-called parody, “Barack the Magic...
It would be nice to see the media, including Time, get together and agree on a
date certain when it will no longer be justifiable to blame the
world's ills on Bush X number of days, or even years after Obama is
What might be more difficult to find...
The inclusion of gasoline numbers drives some of
this, though not in the numbers below. The
numbers are below analyst expectations. My thinking is a
re-alignment is taking place, whether we like it, or not.
Increased savings and reduced spending in what is a
highly services-based economy like America's is a bad...
A few thoughts on this insanity – a Brit TV channel televising Imightneedajob's
speech. Sorry if they conflict with the tone of what should
mostly be a day of joy and peace.
Dorothy Byrne, head of news and current affairs at Channel 4,
said that the network had a responsibility to give a...
No, no complaints. Traditionally, I wrap up Christmas details on
Christmas Eve, so I was out and about doing just that today. I
always make it a point to say Merry Christmas whenever interacting
