Scott Brown, the carpet bagger, can't find his place.


Could be the pick-up truck driving, good old boy image that worked once in Massachusetts isn't doing anything for him where they actually drive the things.

Your opinion of the condition of the economy is probably influenced by your employment status.

So I do a little construction work and requests for my services have been way off during the last 5 years...though generally there seems to be a certain amount of work around. There always is, small jobs, nothing like before the 2008 crash however.

I ran into another carpenter, under the gun to finish a remodeling job and he was all smiles reporting his good job and saying there was plenty to do. I asked if had a job lined up after that and all I got was hedging.

How's your news?

Crimea: Is this question too obvious?

How do the Russians expect to get to and from the Crimea? Will the Ukrainians be checking passports, or does the taking of the Crimea include a free pass over the Ukraine to their navy yard etc. in the Crimea?

Just wondering how that all plays out.

What are the gun nuts waiting for?

Here's a quote from the gun lobby:

In the name of safety, President Obama has issued over two dozen executive orders preventing Americans from accessing the right that protects all others: the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

When will the gun owners start protecting our rights? The NSA and CIA are ignoring the fourth amendment. We know where they are. What's the hold up?

Just asking.

A moment of silence for the GOP.

Here's a chance to not say anything about the GOP's big issues:

Have you noticed the lull?




The National Debt ceiling.

They're down to Gay bashing and abortions.


You'll enjoy this article by former Reader's Digest Editor about Osama Bin Laden.

She calculates Osama cost the US a trillion plus. Doesn't start to measure Bush's boys' killing of hundred's of thousands of Iraqis.

You will especially enjoy the comments. She must really wonder why she even exists.

Don't ask How I ever found this article or why I read it.



Email from Tea Party side of the family:

Irony 1 - "We are told to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics."

BUT on the other hand, "We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a few lunatics." ... Now, just HOW is that supposed to work.....??????

Irony 2 - The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most recent figures available in 2013.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals." Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

Thus Ends Today's Lesson On Irony!!!!!

We need more idiots writing for the progressive side, people who can simplify things into a Reagan like Reader's Digest toss-off line. Anyone want to try.

Meanwhile, I'll be in the bathroom throwing up.

Christie, who says he wants the truth out, has nothing to hide says:

Then, when asked how he might respond to a subpoena, Christie quickly dismissed the question by saying, Im not going to speculate on that at this time. A strange way to answer given how many times he previously claimed he would do everything to cooperate.

Why wouldn't he just say he will be happy to testify in the investigation to determine what happened?


I predict he'll be gone by Washington's birthday.

As usual the local news folks are coming up with the news RE; Bridge Jam.

Mother of 4 turns to political retribution with no explanation? Will we be hearing from under the bus where the poor women has found herself?


Lots of links to earlier stories and more about local impact at this link.

I'm really interested in the mechanics of the Bridge Jam.

Has anyone read any reporting on how the Jam was achieved? How did Wildstein's or Baroni's (SP) requests get carried out and without police being notified? Any interviews with Port Authority workers? Is it standard practice to simply close down lanes at one man's request at the PA?

Have there already been hearings about this that I missed?

Thanks for your help.

I've googled a bit, but most of the reports are very general in nature....Wildstein just said do it and it was done? Hard to believe the PA is run that way.
