Jindal’s Hail Mary

Just in case some of you think I am coming off as very non-libertarian, while I want less government, I want it reduced in a way that works. If you want to land a plane in the air, you don’t just shut off the engine and let the plane crash. There is a certain procedure […]

Adding Comments and CAPTCHA

I set all comments here to require moderation. I have not gotten a legitimate comment on here since shortly after Katrina which was almost 9 years ago. I have gotten a ton of spam. No one besides me sees that. I have been using WordPress’s Jetpack which allows a person to comment using their Facebook, […]

Conservative organizations get it wrong

I’m blogging at 1 in the morning. If you know me even a little, you know that politically I’m somewhere between conservative and libertarian. Some organizations that I often agree with have gotten an issue wrong that hits home. Two years ago, congress passed the Biggert – Waters Act which was suppose to make the […]

The partial government shutdown

First I say partial shutdown because three quarters of the federal government is still running. If you voted for a republican last year, did you do so because you oppose Obama care? If you voted for a democrat last year, did you do so because you support Obama care? If the republic you voted for […]

Paying college athletes & an alternative

Last week NFL player Arian Foster said he took money in college. He also said there was a time when he had to choose between paying for food and paying rent. His coach bought him food and that is a violation of NCAA rules. The coaches and university are making millions off of him. But […]

Twitter Feed

As you can tell by looking at the left side of this post, I am working on integrating Twitter with the blog. Besides posting this on my blog for the sake of having something to blog about, this post is also serving as a test. So we’ll see if it works. You can follow me […]

Election 2012

I started writing this on Nov. 10, 2012, shortly after the presidential election. I saved it as a draft and meant to finish it later. Well it’s later…. two and a half months later. I added a sentence at the end, but everything else was from November. — I’m combining a lot of thoughts regarding […]

On Romney, Obama, and the 47%

Anyone who knows me pretty well knows that I won’t be voting for the Republicratic candidate Obamney. However, if one is going to criticize them, at least be honest about it. This week’s big story is that that Romney was secretly recorded saying 47% of Americans don’t pay taxes, believe in handouts, and will vote […]

Hurricane Isaac

I hoped I would never have to add a new post to the hurricane category but unfortunately that’s the case. Hurricane Isaac hit last week on the 7th anniversary of Katrina. On the good side I have minimal damage to my property. A tree we were planning to cut down feel on a fence we […]

Who Dat

So I didn’t get three days in a row. But three posts in four days still ain’t bad. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued the penalties for the Saints Bounty program. Former Defensive Coordinator Greg Williams (now with the Rams) is suspended indefinitely. As the main guy behind this, he may deserve this. I think one […]
