Pretend

Lovely graphic seen at Borepatch (who has excellent taste in these sorts of things) Of course, I’m immune.  I don’t use WiFi in public places.  And, I didn’t talk to people in public in 1995, so it would pretty much be business as usual for me.

The Multiplier Effect

If you have never heard of the economic concept “multiplier effect,” your education is severely lacking. If you don’t really understand the concept, you can, at least to some degree, be forgiven because most of us don’t, especially the economists and politicians who are so fond of it. If you would like to understand it, […]

Electoral college

Because I am working today, and because it has been a rather slow day, I have been following live reports on the electoral college voting.  According to the reports, Texas has just put Trump’s total over the 270 necessary for election.  Texas and California started their voting process at about the same time.  California is […]

Some things I just do for my personal amusement

Some time back, when I was tinkering with my WiFi set-up, I changed the SSID to “FBI Surveillance Van #2”.  Just a bit of personal amusement. I found out today that my younger niece completely freaked out recently because she thought the FBI was in the neighborhood snooping around.  (Given the legal history of her […]

Motivation

I’ve been having some trouble getting anything accomplished the past few days.  For example, this morning I planned to drink heavily all day, but I just never got around to it.

An alternate wording

AKA: let me fix that for you. I was perusing Facebook a couple of days ago (yes, I know it was a mistake, but sometimes I just can’t help myself) when I noticed one of those slogan/graphic thingys on the wall of one of my left-leaning facebook friends.  It said: “small government” is fascist dog […]

More Food for Thought

While I’m busy working I thought I’d pass along this little tidbit regarding murder in America.

An added bonus

I picked up a new firearm today.  Details aren’t necessarily important.  I’ve been saving a bit here and there for almost 2 years to be able to do this, and I finally got it.  I know this is kind of perverse, but when I got it home, I noticed there is a sticker on the […]
