BLUEGRASS POLITICS If you are glutton for punishment
B SHANK'S LAWYER GETS ALL FIRED UP But his dramatics are not going to have much impact on what happens next week. I guess we should all be grateful he's at least making this removal hearing interesting.
GREAT COLUMN OF QUESTIONS BY JOHN DAVID DYCHE I'd love to hear any Liberal or Progressive answer these questions. Any one of them.
GUESS WHAT? RUSSIA WON'T CARE As it becomes more and more likely Edward Snowden will end up in Russia as he's just sought asylum, Senator Lindsay Graham lofts the stupidest idea yet. "Punish" Russia by keeping our Winter Olympic athletes home. What jackass move by a man who probably can't do a sit up, let alone train for years to become the best in the world at the Winter Olympics. This is a dumb, dumb idea that I hope dies quickly.
STAND YOUR GROUND LAWS UNDER FIRE Even though it was not at all a part of the Zimmerman case, stand your ground laws are now under attack by everyone who wants gun control. Never let a good crisis go to waste, right?
KIDS, TAKE A LESSON FROM THIS I know there are a lot of Gleeks out there who are devastated by the untimely death of one it's stars Cory Monteith. And now we find out it was a combination of alcohol and heroin that did him in. I must thank God for having some adult show my 7th grade class a movie of someone going cold turkey off heroin. It scared me so bad I've never been tempted to try hard drugs. Maybe this death can serve in the same way for some kids today. Talk to you kids about this. Today.
BEING FAT MAY KILL YOU AN ENTIRELY NEW WAY IF you have a heart attack, or are in a serious car accident, the fastest way to the hospital may be a helicopter. But some are turned away because the copter simply can't accomodate their girth and weight. If you need a reason to start trimming down, this is it.
INFLATION IS ON THE RISE And I thought it would be nice to share a one sheet on inflation by Henry Hazlitt. If you don't know EXACTLY what inflation is, don't try to read the gobbledy gook put out by government Keynesian economists, read this. It's so simple, a Democrat could understand it. If only they'd try. And to prove my Wright Brand Bacon analogy, everything costs more. In June, the number was, of course, higher than expected.
