Private Property Rights

The MSJ’s Assault on Private Property Rights Continues…

When something is being forced upon me, I tend to be skeptical of what it is that’s being forced.  Call me crazy. No more than two weeks ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a borderline retarded op-ed about smoking bans.  (See my scathing – and somewhat pissy – review, here.)  Well, they’re …

I’m a Neti Pot Believer

No, I’m not talking about the wacky tabacky (although in my younger days I was a believer in that, too).  I’m talking about the amazing neti pot nasal and sinus cleansing system. As for what follows in this post, I will warn you that I’m going to travel down a road that …

Raped by Global Warming

I can’t remember anything over the course of my lifetime being so forced upon me. Everywhere I go, I’m lambasted by “Green” messages from media and even retailers.  Today I was in Target and was assaulted by “Green” T-Shirts.  I went to Caribou Coffee and got the same crap from …

American Crosscut: The Ron Paul Dialogues

Charlie and I picked up another Crosscut, this time about Ron Paul.  It actually started out as a casual email, and wound up being what I believe to be an interesting conversation. It seems to me that where Charlie and I differ the most centers around where government powers should lie.  …

Coming Soon to Wisconsin: KY-Coated Smoking Ban

No sooner had I written my post about no longer having any guilt for smoking, did Governor Doyle decide to cater to special- interests and spit on private property rights by calling for a statewide smoking ban. Doyle said Wisconsin must act quickly to avoid becoming the “ashtray of the upper Midwest.” Both Illinois …

No Tragedy Left Behind

Yes, I’m ripping off Jason Lewis’s new catch-phrase for the way the local socialists and media are exploiting the 35W bridge collapse. “No tragedy left behind” about sums it up.  Everywhere in the Twin Cities and beyond, liberals are using this tragedy – mind you, before all of the bodies have been pulled from the Mississippi – to …

Changes

Sorry for my lack of content lately, folks.  A lot has been going on in my life, and to be honest, my heart just hasn’t been into this blog. First off, I quit smoking.  It’s going pretty well.  The only real issue I’m having is that I used to sit …

Okay, okay… I won’t stop blogging

Thanks to those of you who wrote the emails and comments that encouraged me to keep writing.  I appreciate it more than you know.  Now that I’m ‘over the hump’ with the quitting smoking, I think I can go back to writing again.  I just needed to get the smoking/writing …

Great blog! (And a great Tiramisu recipe)

Being of Italian heritage, you’d think that I would have tried to make Tiramisu, the goddess of all desserts.  Well, I haven’t…yet.  However, I believe I’ve found a recipe for my favorite dessert that I just might try. Ree over at “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” has just about the easiest-looking Tiramisu recipe I’ve ever seen.  …

Enviromentalism: Forcing Morality

I read an interesting blog entry over at “Hippy Shopper“, regarding “The Great Global Warming Swindle” documentary. In the entry, Hippy Shopper expresses sadness over the fact that this documentary may cast too much doubt into the minds of the general public, therefore possibly halting any future laws and regulations that would force the …
