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 …

Finally, my copy of ‘The Great Global Warming Swindle’ arrives!

After four months of waiting, my DVD copy of ‘The Great Global Warming Swindle’ has arrived.  There was some controversy over in the UK, where thirty or so “scientists” (I use that term very loosely these days) were trying to stop it from being released. I had initially purchased the …

Rolling Stone gets it right… for once

I just read an article over at Rolling Stone that actually makes sense.  Yeah, I know.  I was as shocked, too. The article is about the monsterous ethanol boondoggle, and how it not only hurts the environment, but also drives up food prices the world over.  Maybe the left and …

A Pain in the Neck

Sorry for my lack of content, lately.  I have been experiencing a terrible amount of pain in my neck (most likely due to blogging and my job), and even looking at a computer screen makes every muscle in my neck and shoulders lock up. Today, I’m going to my very first Rolfing session.  …
