This Is a Test

Since I’m back in school again, I decided to upgrade my computer equipment. And, while I was at it I splurged a bit. Now, some people might think the 2 widescreen monitors were a splurge, but I consider that essential computing equipment. I got used to using two monitors at my old job, and it […]

Quote of the Day: Frivolous Edition

This is an excellent post on Executive Privilege (as invoked by the President in the “Fast and Furious” investigation which you should be following, but if you get your news from TV and/or the Left side of the internet may not be familiar with) and explains the different circumstances under which executive privilege may be […]

Status Change

I’ve been meaning to get back into regular posting here at Ratlands.  It’s one of those things I enjoy, and hopefully, occasionally am good enough at to provide some food for thought or a mild chuckle.  I’ve just been sort of tired and brain-dead of late; enough so that I haven’t really had the energy […]

PQRN and Torrents

SOPA. Crap. ‘Nuff said. Except it isn’t.  Massive outrage gets a temporary victory, but this will be back in another form as soon as the furor dies down a bit.  Meanwhile, Larry Correia has a great rant about SOPA and all the other stuff we’ve let happen.  Go read it.  It’s worth it to get […]

Don’t let the facts get in the way

In her discussions with her progressive friends, Rat Jr. called “bullshit” on the business of the “Occupy” folks wearing the Guy Fawkes masks like in V for Vendetta.  She knew they had missed the point of the movie.  I tried to give her some ammunition to use, but as usual, I was less coherent and […]

Quote of the day

Today’s QOTD comes from TokenLibertarianGirl via Samizdata.  (The quote is from the end of the video.) It’s compassionate when you reach into your own pocket to help the needy. It’s theft when you reach into somebody else’s pocket no matter how well intentioned the cause may be.

A quote for Rat Jr.

Rat Jr. has been involved in some online discussions about the Occupy Wall Street folks.  She has found the OWS supporters to be less than open to alternative opinions.  One of her acquaintances actually told her not to post anything on her facebook wall if Jr. didn’t agree with her. I have a fair amount […]

Quote of the Week

From Utah Phillips: If women were squirrels, they’d have bushy tails. I’d fill up my shotgun with rock salt and nails. (I guess it’s one of those “context” things.)
