WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

Is he too smart or not smart enough?

Stupid Polak alert

For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of the Catholic Church.


When they came for 1%-ers, I didn't say anything

Now they are coming for me and there is nobody left to say anything.
Governor Martin O'Malley is the gift that keeps on taking. Even as he grabs ever more from Maryland taxpayers, he's providing useful instruction in the real purpose and pattern of progressive taxation, which is that sooner or later it comes after the middle class.  
Last week the legislature in Annapolis enacted another huge tax increase, this time hitting anyone earning more than $100,000 ($150,000 for couples). This isn't a tax on the 1%. It's a tax on the top 14%.

Now, we are racists because we ask questions

First, this:

and now this:

This has been hidden from us for at least 4 years.

And we can't even talk about it?

How this detail went on to endure 16 years of revision and fact-checking remains an excellent question. The assertion that we are not allowed to ask it is more disturbing than the “Birther” movement ever was. The literary agency attributes it to a “fact-checking error.” But where did the erroneous “fact” come from? And why is fact-checking this man’s past so uniquely outrageous... and difficult?


It's the idea, stupid

And when the idea is gone, so am I. Instead of making this country more welcoming to smart and entrepreneurial people, the Democrats push them away. When they try to leave, Democrats want to punish them or stop them.
Given all that, the notion that Saverin is self-evidently deserving of punishment for his behavior is dubious at best. And barring him from the United States is just silly. What's the worry here, that he'll return, create billions more in value within our borders, and then leave again for Singapore? Do we want to prevent that from happening? As far as I'm concerned, America should roll out the red carpet for every proven innovator in the world who wants to come invent things here, pay the taxes they owe under the law, and then depart to reside elsewhere for awhile. Even if you disagree with some of that analysis, the most disturbing part about this is that two Senators are targeting a specific individual with legislation, and attempting to punish him for legal behavior because they find it personally offensive. It's an affront to the rule of law (as is putting the burden of proof on individuals rather than the state), and telling that of all the Wall Street crooks who've gotten away with actual illegal behavior in the last several years, the guy two U.S. Senators are singling out is a Facebook co-founder who has done nothing but benefit this country.
Maybe now Democrats will be for a wall on our borders. One day we will have to turn our passports in and apply for permission to travel Yes, it happens; I used to live it. I have to admit: Democrats simply annoyed me; I'm starting to despise them.

Just as those who banish dissent accuse others of being intolerant, those who judge people by their race insist that those who don't are racist. The left has managed to invert just about every liberal value there is.

This old house

Boy, I haven't posted any updates since 2010?  So many things have been done since then.  I have to fix this soon.


Get a real degree

So these idiots take out student loans to pay for classes in how to paint murals protesting student loans? It would be funny, except for one thing: Like everything in the world of higher education, it's all lavishly subsidized by your tax dollars.

It's He not They

If there remain people careering around the English-speaking world believing that a woman cannot be a committee chairman or that a man cannot be a nurse, the problem is not spelling – the problem is imbecility. Making English a bit less structurally elegant would not solve that problem. As I learned in college, the worst thing about feminists is listening to them talk.

When you ask Democrats to vote for you in a primary you should know that you have a problem. This will take a few more election cycles but we will eventually clear the the field and reinstate the constitutional republican government. No matter what Pacific University professors say.

This is why welfare doesn't work

American Airlines is in bankruptcy and will probably be able to get rid of these lifetime passes.
There are frequent fliers, and then there are people like Steven Rothstein and Jacques Vroom. Both men bought tickets that gave them unlimited first-class travel for life on American Airlines. It was almost like owning a fleet of private jets. Passes in hand, Rothstein and Vroom flew for business. They flew for pleasure. They flew just because they liked being on planes. They bypassed long lines, booked backup itineraries in case the weather turned, and never worried about cancellation fees. Flight crews memorized their names and favorite meals. [...] Some say agents even procured extra elbow room by booking an empty seat using a phony name on companion passes. "I'd book it as Extra Lowe," said Peter Lowe, a motivational speaker from West Palm Beach, Fla. "They told me how to do it." [...] Creative uses seemed limitless. When bond broker Willard May of Round Rock, Texas, was forced into retirement after a run-in with federal securities regulators in the early 1990s, he turned to his trusty AAirpass to generate income. Using his companion ticket, he began shuttling a Dallas couple back and forth to Europe for $2,000 a month. [...] Rothstein [...] would sometimes pick out strangers at the airport and give them surprise first-class upgrades with his companion pass. Once he flew a woman he'd just met in New Delhi to Chicago, a lift American later valued at nearly $7,500. [...] In 1990, the airline raised the price of an unlimited AAirpass with companion to $600,000. In 1993, it was bumped to $1.01 million. In 1994, American stopped selling unlimited passes altogether.
To each according to his needs? What a joke! People will always take more than they need if it's "free." And the result will be higher and higher cost for the rest of us even if we use our share of resource as intended. I'm not defending American; in fact, I wanted Bush to let it and United fail after 9/11. I simply point out that humans are humans and everything that seems "free" will be abused whether offered by a private company or by a government agency. Will our government go the bankruptcy route or will it "ask" somebody else again to pay for its mistakes? I wouldn't call them "mistakes"; it was all foreseeable. It always happens.

May Day

Day for losers, leeches, and parasites including some university professors to throw a hissy fit and complain about their own failures. So what's your solution? Take from people who work and give it to you? What the hell do you want? I hope you want a job and not a handout. But of course, with your meaningless diploma and your student debts there is nothing there for you. Whose fault is it? Who is responsible? The guys who actually get up in the morning or your stupid professors who get paid for teaching you how to be a victim? And especially you who was gullible enough to think that a degree in victimology would get you somewhere. Go to hell! All of you.
