Humor — Nice and Easy Works Better

HEALTH MESSAGE   (please give me a break) As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized that I don’t really give a rat’s ass. It’s the tortoise life for me! 1.  If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal. 2.  A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, [...]

Nostalgia

For car buffs or those who just want to revisit the past, this site has to be one of the neatest. The web-site features the original factory brochures for nearly every American car. Pick the manufacturer, the year and the model and then enjoy! http://www.lov2xlr8.no/broch1.html

Voting With One’s Feet

Some people believe that banging your head against a wall is therapeutic because it feels so good when you stop. Even if one believes that, how long should one engage in such behavior? Is there an optimal time for best results? An analogy to this head-banging in the business world is putting up with oppressive governmental rules and regulations. There [...]

Rep Mike Kelly from Pa.

This speech from a new representative from western Pennsylvania, Mike Kelly, is refreshing. Where do we get about 300 more of him? I hope he performs in line with what he expresses below.

The Ant and The Grasshopper — An Allegory For The Country

Absurdity is often an excellent way to make a point. Aesop thought so when he created the fable of the ant and the grasshopper. But just how much of a fable was it? This email updates Aesop’s attempt at absurdity. Unfortunately for the country, other than the anthropomorphic elements, the fable is no longer a fable nor absurd.  Much of [...]

More Economic Recovery Evidence (NOT!)

Our economy continues to deteriorate. From The Economic Collapse comes this evidence: In the middle of this “economic recovery” that Obama keeps talking about a staggering number of retail stores are closing up shop.  The following is a list of store closings in 2011 that I recently found.  The first number represents the total number of stores being closed for each [...]

Slime Oozes

The hypocrisy of these legislators is obvious in this video from The Daily Caller. Enjoy watching the slime balls squirm. I hope the interviewer took a shower after her exposure to these frauds.

What Will It Be Like After The Collapse?

From Mac Slavo regarding what to expect after the collapse. It is not as if this vision was conjured up from the mind of a paranoid. Most of it happened recently in Argentina. Similar experiences are available elsewhere. The following excerpts have been graciously contributed by Fernando Ferfal Aguirre and were originally published in his highly rated book The Modern Survival [...]

Eating The Rich Does Not Quench The Hunger

Even “eating the rich” in terms of a 100% tax rate will not solve the government’s excessive spending. Watch this video to understand the extent of our problem in terms that anyone should be able to understand. If video does not work, it can be seen here.

Political Distortions

Politics and politicians are full of lies. During an election year, nothing is out of bounds. While character attacks are difficult to disprove, economic claims are not. Data are available (and often manipulated) to the politician’s advantage. James Pethokuokis presents what he terms the seven most illuminating economic charts of 2011. There is little resemblance between what these charts show [...]

Irena Sendler — True Hero

Irena Sendler was a true hero. As described by Wikipedia: Irena Sendler (née Krzyżanowska, commonly referred to as Irena Sendlerowa in Poland; 15 February 1910 – 12 May 2008)[1] was a Polish Catholic social worker who served in the Polish Underground and the Żegota resistance organization in German-occupied Warsaw during World War II. Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler saved 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of theWarsaw Ghetto, providing them with false documents, and sheltering them in [...]
