Goodbayh, PLEASE

Evan Bayh can't leave soon enough. He comments on Scott Brown in this WaPo article. Bayh is no foxhole buddy, but who woulda thought he would run from a Fright?

Another Iconic Goodbye

Dick Francis, jockey, author, and gentleman, has died. Thanks for many fine hours of reading and reflecting. Mr. Francis embodied the libertarian spirit in his life and literature. I believe I will read it all again.

The Revolution Continues

If Jesus was a carpenter today, he would seek retraining. 24.7 % unemployment in the US construction industry does not bode well for job security or creation. Construction workers do not retrain well. It is more likely they will turn to black market employment compensated by diminished costs or exagerated gains due to illegal activities. The US economy is as much a social force as a financial machine. We are being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century, thank you very much. America has been talking about retraining for the new global economy for 20 years. It is here, with pain. In the beginning there will be a new, smaller middle class. America has an upwardly mobile mind set that will reinvest labor and capital, as the fog lifts, reinvigorating a new middle class with the ability to lift the world economy. Folks living in mud huts in China will be a slow second class driver. But first we must clean out the vegetable drawer.

So 'Long, Sarah

Steve Pendlebury has the facts on The Grid. The entire Washington Post-ABC News poll can be found here. A quick read indicates Mr. Obama is having job evaluation problems. A few hundred other folks are, too:

Approve   Disapprove      No opinion
26 71 3

Most of US want the rubes in Dizzy City to continue working on healthcare reform. 2/3 of US are dissatisfied with the operation of the federal government. Wow. Sarah Palin is not presidential material, but a real populist outsider might be. Americans are pissed off, for sure.

So 'long, Big John

John Murtha, American to the wallet. He was the penultimate political operative. Right or wrong, he made things happen. The political stage will be more barren without him.

Uh Oh...DUCK or Hold Your Breath

Looks like "we all gonna die". "Thirdhand Smoke Forms Cancer-Causing Residue Indoors That Lasts".

I Like Mike

Mike Lupica has his say about LCIC Palin. He does not seem to have William Shatners aritistic appreciation for LCIC Palins peccadilloes. Perhaps Mike missed Nailin' Palin. He must not know of her pro-life commitment.

Crazy Sarah

Lunar Commander In Chief

parties...WHAT are all these crazy things they're shoutin' at me? $100,000.00/40 minutes=NORMAL? These people are the American taliban. Scientists have found water on the moon. A massive resettlement program would be my recommendation.
Moon Tea. Yup, Zappa all the way. Here are 10 true visionaries
we could spare, along with the LCIC.
