It may seem simplistic, but wouldn’t measuring they buying power of your salary (or what’s left of it) in terms of gallons of fuel per hour make a certain amount of sense? Think about it: it will make the effects of increasing fuel prices something directly relevant to everyone except the minority of people that […]

Harrisburg, Illinois was surprised to find out that after a devastating tornado disaster, Øbama’s FEMA would not be providing any monetary aid or relief services to the town. Essentially, FEMA said that the damage wasn’t that bad and that the town and the state could muster up the recovery costs on their own: “Based on our […]
Living as I do, in close proximity to the Connecticut border, I get most of my news from Connecticut. Lately, the topic of the blue law restricting the sale of liquor on Sundays has become a hot topic. And in the interests of full disclosure, I could not possibly care less if people can buy […]
Maybe there is something useful to be learned from the recent backlash against the Susan G.

Remember the comment that East Haven mayor Joseph Maturo made (“I might have tacos”) in response to a reporter’s question about what he would be doing for East Haven hispanics after the arrest of four East Haven police officers for allegedly racially profiling and bullying Latino residents? As reported in U.S. News, Gov. Malloy said that […]
Once again, Øbama’s “truth squads” are being publicized to, as David Axelrod says, “When the truth and facts are under assault, this will be a helpful tool to set things straight.” The use of the word “truth” implies that only the “truth team” has the “truth” and the GOP does not, and need to be […]
An exchange on Jim’s show this morning made me laugh and think at the same time. A caller remarked paying (well, bribing) companies to come to Connecticut is analogous to paying a high priced mistress: when the money dries up, she disappears in the middle of the night. When you think about it, aren’t Democrats […]
