PACT Act Down for the Count?

Does everyone remember United States v. Stevens?  One of the problems with the "crush video" law was this:  "Those seeking to comply with the law face a bewildering maze of regulations from at least 56 separate jurisdictions."  Simply put, the US Congress has decided to add such overly broad and u…

Burning Devils and Pagans

I see the Dow closed below 10,000 today.  Told y'all so!  I'm so glad I got completely out of "the market" a few years back.  Seriously guys, just take a look at the 5 year chart on the Dow.  We've actually had no real growth of anything with inherent value in this country for probably more than …

2010 Muzzle Awards

20 Pens, The signing of Laws

I just watched Obama sign the health care bill into law.  That takes longer when one scrawls a portion of one's signature with each of 20 different pens.  20?  REALLY?  I saw Nancy Pelosi signing something the other day with multiple pens too.  Of course, WE, YOU and I, pay for these pens and then t…

From a Card Carrying Democrat

After that last post of mine, it might shock some of you to find this out.  I am a life long, card carrying DEMOCRAT.  But I'm an old democrat.  I want the right to be as liberal as I want in my own home and that means government needs to keep its paws out of my pocket and the more distant the gover…
