Halloween, Schmalloween. Sorry, but that’s how I feel. I don’t mind the little kids candyhandling – hey, a kid’s gotta eat. I just don’t want to have to dress up myself. (The one time I actually felt comfortable in my costume, the last time I did this decades ago, I wore a tuxedo with a […]
Up from $38 in March to $71 Thursday, it dropped five dollars Friday. My suggestion: hang on.
YOU DON’T LIKE US! YOU REALLY DON’T LIKE US!

AND IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER MINUTE
Here‘s a new Democratic web ad. It doesn’t even mention the 100,000 (or is it 665,000?) Iraqi dead. It doesn’t mention the maimed and wounded and orphaned, or the money, or the torture, […]
WHAT DEMOCRATS WILL DO
I thought this snippet from a blog called ‘DCCC-consultants-are-overpaid-monkeys.com’ (no less) made sense:
Few people know about the Democrats’ “First 100 Hour Plan.” Here’s some details:

THAT $1.25 SEX CALL
Dan C.: ‘My phone number in Northern Virginia USED to be 266-2437, which spells ‘Boobies’ on the telephone. More times than I care to count people called my number looking for a sex line, so I can understand how mistakes could be made. After a while, it got to be […]
Alan Light: ‘Here’s where you can find how many people have your same name in the United States. There are 21 of me.’
☞ And – gad – 38 of me. Not sure how accurate this is. My pal Steve Sapka may be interested to know there is no one in […]
The number of lobbyists in Washington has more than doubled in five years, even as the number of Senators and Congresspersons has held steady: 535.
Business has learned that in an all-rightwing government, lobbyists are a great return on investment.

Hey – so I downloaded and installed it – easy, even for me – and it’s better and worth doing. (But don’t blame me if something awful happens.)
The Dow broke 12,000 and (as noted in more detail a few days ago) – it is […]
Amazing video follows – your jaw will surely unhinge – but you have to suffer some partisan stuff first.
And I quote:
The current Congress has shown no inclination to investigate the Bush administration. Last year The Boston Globe offered an illuminating comparison: when Bill Clinton was president, the House took 140 hours of sworn […]
So CSPLF, suggested here year after year at prices ranging from $6.50 down to as low as $2.65, was bought out at $13.10 this month. That may be a lot less than it was worth – I assume that’s what the acquirer believes – but as bad news goes, it could have been worse.
