So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Musings on an Old Cliché

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. "
Attribution: Uncertain.
Applicability: Intermittent.

Barack Hussein Obama’s Labor Day activities caused me to spend a little time wrapping my brain around this old cliché. The first page of a Google type-ahead search on “The definition of insanity is” yielded this blog post from the election season of 2006. The author of this post gives us a good light-hearted rant on a basically meaningless topic. (Call it a “fun rant” – an FR, if you will.) Except for this comment that ties the four-year old FR to Barack Hussein Obama’s Labor Day activities.

(Yes, it would appear people comment on 4 year old posts. What is THAT the definition of?)

Well, I don’t know if “Tom” is in fact a “Repubican” (in Mark Levin’s lexicon), or he just can’t spell very well on a keyboard (there being at least two other errors to point to), but his observation certainly seems like that of a Patriot.

And “Tom” was keen enough to make this observation almost six months before Barack Hussein Obama gave a major speech – in public, no less – for a new Keynesian stimulus bill. This time it’s Fifty B-B-B-B-Billion (gratuitous Doug Tracht reference) dollars for infrastructure projects. INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS! AYKM!

One of my commute options, on the DC beltway, between the Wilson Bridge and the Dulles Toll Road, is absolutely littered with so-called “infrastructure projects” that divert traffic every which way, in a different way, every single day. All of these projects have four things in common:

• No doubt initiated with Stimulus I funds

• Always in progress

• Never finished

• Hasn’t put a dent in the economy at large


In fact, you could argue very successfully placing construction at practically every exit all at once slows traffic measurably, and is therefore a measureable drag on the economy at large. I wonder if there’s a Patriot out there in position to measure it?

And it’s not even as if the 2009 Stimulus I bill is the first epic failure of this model. I mean, what was the Great Depression if not one massive public works program micromanaged out of Washington? Despite ten years of WPA, TVA, and an alphabet soup of Keynesian nonsense – in the end we had to go through Hitler and Tojo to reach prosperity again.

Yet, here we are, 50-60 years on from the pro-growth policies of the 1950’s that wiped out the WW II deficits in short order, and 20-30 years on from the economic juggernaut known as Reaganomics that set records for expansion – and the Democrat one trick pony is out telling us the path to prosperity is spending more money we don’t have - on public works projects.

Well, here’s one example of “Publik Werks” I encountered on the DC Metro system – L’Enfant Plaza station to be precise – on Labor Day 2010. I was returning home with my family from the Nationals’ 13-3 thumping of the Mets at Nationals’ Park.

  For those of you who are not DC natives;

• The Blue Line and Yellow Line branch at King Street station

• Van Dorn and Springfield are Blue Line stops

• Look at the picture again

The yellow line took me to my home station of Huntington nevertheless. I had no fear this would be the outcome – only because I must have looked at this display Fifty B-B-B-B-Billion times on Metro cars and in Metro stations over the past twenty years.
More infrastructure spending? AYKM?
Share the genius :


  1. Like you, I have lived in the DC area for many years. It still amazes me how pathetic the signage of the metro's like they didn't consider that the signs are for people who NEED HELP, and not someone who already knows where they are going. At metro center...I always have to read the signs twice so I know which side of the tracks to go to make sure I go the right direction.

  2. If you are looking for some encouraging news - search the internet for Thorium. I believe this is possibly the world's next HUGE technology breakthrough. The US has the opportunity to get the jump on the entire world. The government doesn't have to subsidize, or tax break this one bit. All they have to do is "GET OUT OF THE WAY!"
