Maxine Waters Proves the Point

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Ms. Waters.  So few people can be considered as absolutely devoid of sense as she.  Here is the footage of her frothing at the mouth about nationalizing America’s oil industry.  Of course the axiomatically certain result of such an action would be a diminution […]

…And The Fed Too

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

While I am ranting, let’s just get our view of the fed off our chest as well.  As I write, July 2008 Crude is trading over $133 per barrel.    Are you kidding me?  Metals are now surging as well.  Commodities are going through the roof, and it is this more than anything else that […]

NY Times Weak Attempt to Smear McCain
