Asking Governor’s Promise He’ll Represent People Who Pay At The Pump

And now a note about John Boehner [Caveat: 1st I’ll say I don’t think much of Harry Reid either]

Boehner told Harry Reid to “Go F___ yourself” when Reid said he was behaving dictatorially.

OPINION: Beyonce Knowles; Underachiever Of The Millenium

OK, Beyonce LipSync’d the National Anthem and she sang her medley of perishable non-memorable hits “LIVE.” Anyone hardly even know what LIVE means anymore??? Yes, she cranked up the mains and left her full-on backing track pumping loudly in her monitors so you mostly heard her, and faintly heard everything she prepared. She really could […]

Economic Analysis Of a MOST Macro Kind.

I saw the following astute and alert analysis on a friend’s Facebook page today and replied in kind. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with looking into the minimum wage in CT to see if it helps people get a job or somehow impairs them from getting a job in CT. It is worth […]

Who Remembers When G-d Supposedly Said He’d Strike Oral Roberts Dead??

Who remembers when Oral Roberts said he needed to raise a certain amount of millions or G-d was going to strike him dead? And Who remembers when he claimed he met G-d near a burning bush and was told he had a stay of execution and had until February instead to raise the last million […]
