Chip Shots


A Name, A Penalty, Well-Paid Police And GLD

*What’s that guy’s name again? Here’s another interesting tidbit from the political scene in Nevada. Seems some guy named Rory is running for governor on the Democratic ticket. His campaign site has lots of feel-good information about his wife, his children, where he went to college, what he’s done since. The only thing that isn’t […]

Danger Of A Lame Duck Congress, Obamacare And A Best President Poll

*If the right wins big this November. There are some interesting stories floating out of Washington about what could happen after this November’s elections. If the Republicans win control of the House—something many pundits are predicting—expect the Democrats to demand a lame-duck session of Congress, where they will try to get enough defeated congressman to […]

The Dawn Of The Atomic Age

The atomic age began on July 16, 1945, when scientists near Alamogordo, N.M., detonated the world’s first atomic bomb. One of the most massive (and most secret) programs of World War II had borne deadly fruit. President Harry S Truman was attending a summit conference in Potsdam, East Germany at the time. He was sent […]

Toy Story 3, Wasted Tax Dollars, California Casinos And Seeing Red

*Go see Toy Story 3. You’ll love it. Over the 4th of July weekend we enjoyed baseball and fireworks, patriotic concerts and fun at the beach. But a special delight was seeing the latest production from those geniuses at Pixar Animation, Toy Story 3. It’s even better than the first two in the series. One […]

Funny Money, An App For That, Two Fathers And Woody Allen

*The first “funny money” in the U.S. Do you remember the phrase, “not worth a continental”? If you don’t, I’m sure your parents do. It refers to the paper money that the Continental Congress authorized back in 1776. It became so worthless George Washington said, “a wagonload of currency will hardly purchase a wagonload of […]

PC Police, An Expensive Stock Tip, Vuvuzelas And A Good Question

*The PC police strike again. David Morales, a Rhode Island second-grader, wanted to honor American troops at a special class event. So he took a camouflage baseball cap, put an emblem of the American flag on the front and then glued several plastic soldiers from his collection around the cap. Sounds creative and patriotic, right? […]

Democrat Doozie, A Bad Investment, Green Policies And Pension Fund Raids

*The Dems pick a doozie in S.C. With all the news pouring in from various state primaries you might have missed one of the weirdest. It seems that an unemployed veteran, with no visible means of support, somehow came up with the $10,400 filing fee in South Carolina and won the Democratic primary for the […]

The Goldman Sachs Lie

*Goldman Sachs lied to its customers. The best summary I’ve seen about what Goldman Sachs did wrong comes from my friend Eric Fry. Here’s what he said in the Daily Reckoning, one of my favorite ezines: “As one of America’s largest purveyors of toxic collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), Goldman played the role of financial cigarette […]

The Census, PC Police, Another Lying Politician And Pseudonyms

*How many does it take to count us? Here’s an interesting tidbit from another column I write for Personal Liberty Alerts. "This Week in History”" is the last item every Wednesday. The one this week related that during the 1890 census, it took 45,000 census workers to count the 62,622,249 people then in the United […]

Incumbents, Words And Strange Things

*3 down, 532 to go. It looks like it’s going to be a tough year for incumbents. And it’s about time. Conservatives in Utah said “no thanks” to Bob Bennett’s attempt to turn the Senate seat there into a lifetime sinecure. Democrats in Pennsylvania told Arlen Specter to return to private life, despite Barack Obama’s […]
