The preceding link is to a CNN article titled "What lies behind renewed tensions over the Falkland Islands?"
You can read the article but this one guy's comment nailed it, and I threw in another guy'sf or kicks.
They're not all stupid out…Continue
Ever since David Stockman - the Chief Financial Architect for President Reagan - created the revolutionary "tax cuts
pay for themselves" economic plan...two of the harshest critics have been David Stockman and the facts.
Mr. Stockman has gone on record as saying his theory was only applicable when the highest tax rates were 71-90 percent. And the facts speak for themselves with each ensuing independent CBO Report that cites how each tax cut has continually and…Continue
It happened a few weeks back, before my ailing leg caused me to be housebound. I was out in the barn feeding the animals. I had just finished spreading hay beneath the run-in shed so the horses could graze out of the cold wind and I paused for a short rest.
Leaning on the center support beam of the shed, I let my eyes wander across the landscape of the ranch, settling at last on the far pond, a place of singular beauty on the ranch where deer come out of the forest to…Continue
Every weekly episode of the 1978-1982 television series, Mork and Mindy, ended with Mork (a very young, strapping, Robin Williams, dressed in his cheesy, red and silver, Ork attire) standing solo, on camera, giving his oral check-in report to Orson, his home-planet contact and superior.
At this point all I can do is laugh when I think about how some of my friends on the far right were naive as to think that sensible Republicans in Congress had failed to heed the message of the 2012 election and the current political realities borne therefrom. The latest development in the fiscal cliff drama show to what degree some on the right have regained their senses and moved back to the center, in the direction of much needed compromise. Quoting political commentator Jennifer…Continue
Happy New Year Everybody!
2013 is starting out a lot like 2012...there are a lot of things
that could have happened that didn't...should not have happened but did!
Some of these things were obvious...some were not!
I was glad to see that President Obama could finally be the Last Man
Standing while Clint Eastwood should have just sat down. It was a
shame that George Zimmerman chose to Stand his ground, but it was
also a relief to see…
Today’s discussion at work has been focused on the “fiscal cliff” vote. In three separate conversations, I asked a simple question… who…Continue

Well the truth about gun registration has finally been unveiled. Gun supporters have long claimed that the left wants to ban all guns, and that letting the government know where the guns are is the first step in confiscation of guns.
If we look back in history to terror that the NAZI's brought on Germany and the world we see that they didn't directly go after guns, to start with. In fact in Germany in the late 30's when Hitler came into…Continue
I am not a blogger I am just a guy who appreciates others thoughts and reading Blogs is a way of knowing and commenting on them. So please understand if I comment in any way you may feel negatively on your post, know it is just my thought at the time of reading it and I may change my mind so please don't take it as a personal attack.
Also I'll never claim to be very good at spelling or grammar and being as this site is new to me I also am not familiar with any possible help it may or…Continue

I am aware that in-law problems can cause tremendous stress in a marriage and easily tip the balance in the direction of divorce. This happened to me in two marriages. Thankfully, in my current marriage, I have made friends w/several of my wife's family, and this is a relief. Feeling unaccepted by a father or mother in law can be especially traumatic.
I saw two signs on TV: "Democrats hate you," and "Republicans hate you. Why do far too many feel compelled to promote the…Continue
The furor over Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's prejudicial stance against gay and lesbian Americans should not go away and ought to cause the Chief Justice and his court colleagues to insist that he, at the very least, recuse himself from the upcoming cases regarding the Defense of Marriage Act and the overturning of California's Proposition 8.
This is not just a question of a political point of view, which, depending on whether a justice leans right or left, often determines…Continue
Spend some time following R-bloggers, and each day, on average, is another posting detailing how to get rich with yet another "trading" algorithm/strategy. Never mind that Galbraith got it right decades ago: "Financial genius is a rising stock market". Today brings yet more evidence that he's right.
What's disappointing with today's piece: it…

MAY 7, 2009 I wrote the following:
The war of terror
The wedding of the young couple in the mountain vale between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The band started playing and the people dancing. The drone coming from the sky. The missile from the drone. The newly wed couple and all their friends killed. The village leader wrote on his diary: 'Americans again killed fifty people'.…Continue
