  • Three Alabama Newspapers Instruct Voters to ‘Reject Roy Moore’ With Front-Page Editorials

    Never wanted the Huntspatch Times, but my wife did. After seeing the front page she called, cancelled and told them why.

  • Want to put a STOP to the "NFL" NONSENSE?

    Seems to me this is not enough. NFL teams play in tax-payer, budget draining stadiums for the pleasure of those who are easily distracted from corrupt politics with “the games” (at least the patrons of ancient Rome paid, for the most part, for games out of their own pockets). It is time to make those willing to tolerate this nonsense pay a surtax, let us say $50 a ticket, for attending this seditious spectacle, in order to pay back the cost of building this palaces for these poor oppressed millionaires to ply their trades in.

    Over the years I have read a lot of Fred on Everything. He is usually right, with a clear vision of the wrong direction of things. I am surprised that he does not forecast the devastation that will come to the population centers of the country, and the rest of the world. He is usually pretty on top of such things.

    The left clearly does not understand what New York City is in for if the breakdown comes. Los Angeles is in a worse pickle.

    I currently live in a county where Fred lived in his boyhood. The mood here is palpable. I am also an LA expat. I know well the vulnerability of the basin: food, power, but especially, water. All of these things are too easily disrupted, even by an unorganized rebellion. The red states will likely turn their fury towards the cities. The port of Los Angeles, aka San Pedro (currently being renovated into a mass homeless shelter dump) will help, but only enough to keep the influential from suffering, as usual.

    I do not advocate for these things. As Fred does, I see what is happening. The suffering of mankind, world wide, will be unimaginable in its horror. I hope not to live long enough to see it. Pray for peace and understanding.

    The last 90 days of the 44th President is looking more and more like a scorched earth campaign. He should be put on trial as vice president Aaron Burr was. His behavior is treasonous.

    Having lived near the districts of both these congresscritters for extended periods and bearing, in succession, the embarrassment of being a citizen of not just the states but the counties in common with them, I can tell you definitively that SJL is head and shoulders ahead of Waters in dumb bunnery. Waters never asked the operators of the Mars rover to turn the camera so that she could see the American flag planted upon the Martian landscape. SJL did. You know... in Houston, at JSC... the city in part she represents in Congress.

    I found Grant’s memoirs to be a very good read that offered a different perspective on the campaigns conducted by Grant and his subordinates. It is available as a free ebook at the Gutenberg Project, Gutenberg.org.

    I started college at the beginning of this chart. When I started a full load of courses at a public university was $108 per semester. When I left, 4 years later, it was over $1000. Apparently, public universities, at least in California, accomplished in 4 years what it took private institutions 30 years achieve.

    And people say government doesn’t work.

  • 630 WMAL Talk Show Host Chris Plante has been fired

    NappyOne to GopherIt

    I realized that right after I hit “post”. We still lost him after a very short stint in Huntsville. I liked him from the start. Same feel I had when I heard Rush for the first time. From the page on where to listen to him this was the only market outside DC he had. Too bad. His show is good enough for a national audience.

    Right now we have 6 hours on local (Alabama) talk covered by two hosts, Rush, Savage (Plante here would be ideal to bridge me from Rush to Levin), and Levin.

    I guess I will just have to stream or podcast him.

    Thanks,

    I liked Chris the instant I heard him.

    But I hadn’t understood how small Chris’ reach was. While you WMAL listeners are, justifiably, upset, you may not realized that he had a couple hours on air here in the Tennessee Valley on WVNN replacing Heraldo Revera. Now we have a host out of Birmingham who does Alabama politics. Yea, that is important, but 2 hours on the state budget and road projects will only go so far.

    I hope he comes back. Someday some bright station manager will put the trifecta together - Plante, Limbaugh, Levin. That would be nine hours of radio I wouldn’t miss.

    This is FABulous.

    To put the icing on the cake (or peperoni on the pie), the proprietor should take from the donations what the estimated losses were and very publicly, with profuse thanks to the intolerant, donate the rest to a pro-family Christian lobby. There will be many hater fatalities as they swallow their own tongues in a fit of anger.

    Is that all it takes?

    If I collect 14 others to go on a income tax strike because the IRS breaks the law, in several respects, will we get invited to DC to negotiate a new tax code?

    Can we have Kerry (whom I understand is a Viet Nam veteran) to negotiate with?

    As in STEM, the Christian Republicans are out making a difference in the world, you know, by actually working and creating something. The non-Christian Democrats are sitting back conspiring with Universities to put students in life-long debt servitude so these profs can live an easy, secure life.

    My grandfather joined the Marines in 43, a few months after his first wife died. After completing training he was assigned to the 6th Marine Division and landed on D-Day at Okinawa. He was 35 years old when he waded ashore.

    When historians estimate the loss of civilian life at Okinawa there should be adding a footnote or two. First Okinawan culture was still distinct from Japanese culture at the time of the battle. Evidence of this comes from a tale my grandfather told of capturing some Japanese soldiers hiding among the Okinawan populace. He was alerted of their presence by the Okinawans. Second, about half the island was undefended. A sizable portion of Okinawan civilians did not evacuate behind the infamous Surri line and were “captured” by the Marines assigned to take the north end of the island. Keep this in mind when you hear about civilian deaths of about one third of the population. Now extrapolate that to what would have happened on the main islands of Japan, where every inch would have been contested. It is difficult to imagine.

    Americans rarely talk about the British contribution to the battle. Many British ships (English, Australian and New Zealand flagged) took part and were attacked by kamikaze along with the America fleet.

    Further, Churchill committed the Empire to the invasion of Honshu, Operation Olympia, along with the Americans. Britain estimated they would suffer about 500,000 casualties. This is on top of the estimated 1,000,000 American dead, missing and wounded. Japanese casualties would have been horrific.

  • 11 Facts About The Minimum Wage That President Obama Forgot To Mention

    I like the mathematics on the poverty level:

    LLL (Local Lefty Loon): People who work full time should make a living wadge.
    CCC (Clear-thinking Concise Conservative): Does that mean they should earn more than the Federal Poverty Level?
    LLL: Of course, you heartless bastage.
    CCC: Great, then you favor lowering the minimum wadge.

    This is a hard time of year for NASA because of their losses.

    Apollo 1, January 27, 1967
    Challenger, January 28, 1986
    Columbia, February 1, 2003

    I don’t remember hearing about the Apollo 1 loss, was watching the Challenger launch live when it happened, and was working on ISS in Houston when we lost Columbia.

    February 1 was established as NASA’s Day of Remembrance after Columbia was lost.

    I almost thought this funny. Then I remembered this...

    “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed.” - Vice President Slow Joe Biden as aired on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

    It just stops being funny when it is the VP saying stuff like this without being lead on by a guy on the steet holding a microphone.
