Pothole Heaven

Paris – the City of Lights
Florence – the City of Love
Denver – the Mile High City
Cleveland – the City of Burning Rivers
Detroit – Motown
LA – . . . . (the debate continues – is it a city?)
Washington DC – the City of Morons and Thieves


Chicago – the City of Potholes

Many here already know that Chicago has four seasons: summer, winter, elections, and road construction.

Guns and Civilization

Following the terrible tragedy at Northern Illinois University just this past week, I thought it might be a good time to discuss firearms again and their unique place in our civilization.

“Going Postal” became a part of our language in the mid-1980s, which was also about the time that our freedoms began to vanish exponentially. This is not a coincidence, but cause and effect get all tangled up in any discussion of firearms.

None of the above?

The muses for today’s blog entry are several.

For the most part, they are "snippets" of conversation, or comments of your own, gentle reader.

Like most of the readers of Mr. Thompson’s rant, (which I almost always thoroughly enjoy) I found comments to the same to be of great help in breaking a bit of writer’s block, where gazing at the mist covered Blue Ridge mountains did not. (It usually does) Thank you all.

Bush’s war on American liberty and freedom

President George W. Bush lashed out at Democratic lawmakers Friday in a political tug-of-war over a wiretap program that pits US attempts to prevent terror attacks against its duty to protect civil liberties.

Bush accused Democrats in the House of Representatives of putting Americans at risk by blocking the Senate-passed legislation and allowing the post-September 11, 2001 measure to expire as they go on vacation.

“By blocking this piece of legislation our country is more in danger of an attack,” Bush said.

Hillary acts nice, then goes on the attack

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton smothered Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain with kindness on Friday, then declared her rivals wrong on the issues and vowed to beat both in her quest for the presidency.

She said Obama, her Democratic foe, has run an “extraordinary campaign,” and called McCain, the likely Republican nominee, “a man of great heroism.”

But she said McCain represents “more of the same” in Iraq, and she cast Obama as an obstacle to universal health care. She also unveiled a tough new ad against Obama, accusing him of dodging debates.

Obama picks up key labor endorsement

Gathering strength, Sen. Barack Obama collected a key labor endorsement and coaxed away one of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s delegates on Friday, at the same time he criticized his rival for supporting legislation harmful to workers.

“Her supporting NAFTA didn’t give jobs to the American people,” Obama said of the free trade agreement implemented while Bill Clinton was in the White House. “Her supporting a bankruptcy bill made it harder for people to get out of debt that didn’t help them with the bills that were stacking up on their desks.”

Take your stinking fence and shove it!

People in Texas don’t want this stinking fence.

Border fence would slice through private land

Once again we have a fringe element in our country, whose policies have led to another stupid project which will end up stealing thousands of acres of private land, and spend untold amounts of taxpayer dollars that could go to much better uses.

Texans are not happy about this stupid proposal especially the ones whose land is being appropriated for something that will in the end be another useless and wasteful FUBAR. Read on………

This is how we support our troops

I absolutely hate the term “support our troops.” It is so fake and meaningless. It’s easy.

Well this is how we support our troops.

Delay in armored trucks blamed for U.S. deaths

AP writes: “Hundreds of U.S. Marines have been killed or injured by roadside bombs in Iraq because Marine Corps bureaucrats refused an urgent request in 2005 from battlefield commanders for blast-resistant vehicles, an internal military study concludes.

To He, To She, but NOT to Whitey

Well, everyone seems to be jumping on the Barak Bandwagon but me. I am OK with that, as I never cared to march to anyone’s drummer but my own. That way the consequences belong to me, the responsibility belongs to me, and eventually the credit will belong to me. No sharing!
I despise McCain. He is the Washington Long-term Insider personified, a sleeze, a backstabber, a two-faced triple tongued liar.
