Random thoughts on the passing scene: When I was growing up, an older member of the family used to say, "What you don't know would make a big book." Now that I am an older member of the family, I would say to anyone, "What you don't know would fill more books than the Encyclopedia Britannica." At least half of our society's troubles come from know-it-alls, in a world where nobody knows even 10 percent of all. Some people seem to think that, if life is not fair, then the answer is to turn more of the nation's resources over to politicians who will, of course, then spend these resources in ways that increase the politicians' chances of ...

Who Had The Worst Week In Washington? The Tea Party
Post Date: 2012-12-07 11:06:43 by Brian S
The Gadsden flag is flying at half-staff this past week. The tea party that plucky insurgent movement that, as recently as two years ago, began trying to reshape the Republican Party and politics more generally finds itself flailing as 2012 draws to a close, buffeted by infighting, defeats and a broad struggle to find a second act.Consider the following:●Tea party patron saint Jim DeMint stunned the political world by announcing that he would resign from the Senate at the end of the year to take a job as the head of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.●FreedomWorks, a Washington-based political group that is one of the pillars of the tea party ...
Judge Orders Father Of 9 To Stop Having Children
Post Date: 2012-12-04 17:34:29 by Brian S
RACINE, Wis. (AP) A Wisconsin father of nine who's behind on child support payments has been ordered by a judge not to have any more children until he can show he can provide for them. Corey Curtis, who fathered the children with six women, owes nearly $100,000 in back child support and interest, according to Racine County prosecutors. In sentencing the 44-year-old father Monday in Racine County Circuit Court for failing to pay support, Judge Tim Boyle lamented that he didn't have the authority to order sterilization for Curtis. "Common sense dictates you shouldn't have kids you can't afford," the judge said. Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Sommers ...
Poll: If Fiscal Cliff Negotiations Fail, Republicans Likely To Get Blame
Post Date: 2012-12-04 10:27:20 by Brian S
Republicans in Congress could shoulder most of the blame for failed fiscal cliff negotiations, according to a Washington Post/Pew Poll released Tuesday. A 53 percent majority of Americans said congressional Republicans would be more to blame if leaders failed to hammer out a deal, while just 27 percent would mostly blame President Barack Obama. While Democrats were the most likely to fault the GOP, about half of independents and 19 percent of Republicans also said they'd blame congressional Republicans. As the Post's The Fix blog notes, "Those numbers are largely unchanged from a Post- Pew survey conducted three weeks ago and suggest that for all of the back and forth in ...
GOP Rep. To Former Bush Staffer, Dan Senor: Investigate WMD Claims Before Attacking Susan Rice
Post Date: 2012-12-02 17:06:43 by Brian S
Rep. Tom Cole, a Republican from Oklahoma, says that if lawmakers are going to go after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice over her initial public assessment of the September attack in Benghazi then maybe Congress should also look at how President George W. Bush pushed bad intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Dan Senor, who worked to spin the Iraq war for the Bush administration as the chief spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), told a Sunday panel on ABC that Rice deserved to be scrutinized because she was front and center as the voice of the Obama administration after the Benghazi attack. I spoke with one senator who ...

Ohio Senate Kills Anti-Abortion ‘Heartbeat’ Bill
Post Date: 2012-11-28 11:02:53 by Brian S
Republican Ohio state Senate President Tom Niehaus plans to let an extreme anti- abortion bill falter, according to the Associated Press. Though the Ohio House passed the legislation last year, the Republican-led Ohio Senate will not vote on the bill before the end of the legislative session. Niehaus told the Associated Press he wanted the state legislature to focus on jobs and the economy. The so-called heartbeat bill would have prohibited abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks. The bill did not provide exceptions for rape, incest or the life of the mother. The bill split Ohios pro-life community. Ohio Right to Life ...
Failed Tennessee Republican ‘Family Matters’ Congressional Candidate Arrested For Hitting Wife
Post Date: 2012-11-27 18:27:10 by Brian S
Brad Staats, a Tennessee Republican who lost a congressional election earlier this month, was arrested Sunday on a charge of domestic violence. On the campaign trail, the self-billed family matters candidate championed so-called conservative values like blocking marriage equality, denying women the right to abortions and preventing undocumented immigrants from becoming citizens. Staats lost to Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) by a margin of 32 percent to 65 percent, and thanked his wife in his concession speech. Last weekend, however, the 43-year-old Staats wasnt interested in saying much, telling a reporter for The Tennessean that his arrest is not what it appears to ...
Klayman: Conservatives Will 'Soon Become the New Niggers'
Post Date: 2012-11-19 11:26:02 by Brian S
Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, Klayman warns in his WorldNetDaily column that conservatives who oppose President Obama will soon become the new niggers, relegated to the back of the bus as the bus speeds away to quickly fall over the fiscal, social and moral cliff, arguing that they are treated just like African Americans were during Jim Crow. The increasingly delusional Klayman cited his Citizens Grand Jury as a way to indict Obama, Vice President Biden, Supreme Court Justices Roberts and Kagan for all their supposed crimes, making sure that America does not die and go the way of ancient Greece, Rome and other ...

Why Save the Republican Party?
Post Date: 2012-11-15 14:22:32 by Capitalist Eric
Since the election there has been much discussion of the future of the Republican party. Can it ever again win a national election, or is it doomed to permanent minority status? The most common response has been that the party must "reach out" (i.e., compete in the offer of bribes) to the exploding Hispanic population. Rather neatly and deceitfully avoiding the obvious fact that Republican sponsorship of mass immigration is the cause of their minority status. A few fringe commentators have urged that the party instead do more for its core constituency of conservative white people. But the party leadership has already repudiated this alternative in both word and deed. They have ...
Fox 19 anchor back on the air after suspension for calling Rachel Maddow an 'angry young man' on Facebook
Post Date: 2012-11-14 21:34:37 by Abcdefg
Tricia Macke, an Ohio news anchor for Fox 19, was suspended over disparaging comments she made about the MSNBC host on her personal Facebook page. A Fox news anchor was back on the air Tuesday night following a 2-day suspension for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an "angry young man" on Facebook. Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12. She was quickly criticized by her Facebook followers, who compared the comment to making racist jokes. "I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have ...
Share This Massive List Of Post-Election Firings And Layoffs With Everyone You Can
Post Date: 2012-11-14 15:19:07 by Capitalist Eric
The victory by Barack Obama on election night has resulted in a huge wave of firings and layoffs all over America. A large number of businesses seem to have suddenly shifted into panic mode. The number of layoff announcements that we have seen in the last 48 hours has been absolutely shocking. So why is this happening? Well, the truth is that the federal government is absolutely suffocating small businesses all over America with rules, regulations and taxes. If you have never tried to run a small business, then you have no idea how oppressive this system actually is for people that are trying to run small businesses successfully. It has steadily gotten worse over the years no matter who has ...
Nate Silver's Best & Worst Polls of 2012: Gallup Did TERRIBLE
Post Date: 2012-11-10 21:51:17 by Brian S
¶As Americans modes of communication change, the techniques that produce the most accurate polls seems to be changing as well. In last Tuesdays presidential election, a number of polling firms that conduct their surveys online had strong results. Some telephone polls also performed well. But others, especially those that called only landlines only or took other methodological shortcuts, performed poorly and showed a more Republican-leaning electorate than the one that actually turned out. ¶Our method of evaluating pollsters has typically involved looking at all the polls that a firm conducted over the final three weeks of the campaign, rather than its very last poll ...
The US standard railroad gauge is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.
Post Date: 2012-11-10 10:15:43 by A K A Stone
The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. Thats an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used? Because thats the way they built them in England, and English expatriates built the US Railroads. Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and thats the gauge they used. Why did they use that gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing. Okay! Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they ...

Today Im going to come as close to political as I ever do in this blog. Youve been warned. If its going to annoy you, you may leave now. This election has swirled around a lot of crazy things, starting with War on women a concept that might as well have been invented by a Martian with no understanding of human psychology or anatomy. I can just imagine the march on the womens towns, guns blazing
I can, unless I realize that most men love or at least like women, and that women are not an army of same-minded robots. Then there was the war on Big Bird and finally the rather ridiculous injunction to vote for revenge though what in heavens name ...
