Good Morning everyone.

Still up here in NY, so for now, this will be the blog.

The sun rose again, and the sky is blue. That is a wonderful thing.

Good Morning.

Today is our 3,803rd day in Afghanistan.

We'll start this morning as we always do; with the latest casualty figures from our ongoing war, courtesy of Antiwar.com:

US Military Deaths - Afghanistan: 1,908
Other Military Deaths - Afghanistan: 999

We find this morning's cost of war passing through:

$ 1, 309, 156, 650, 000 .00

I've really not got much to say today. These two stories appeared as succesive clicks at Stars and Stripes. Just read them and think about it.

I'm Sorry, Rush / Rush, I'm sorry

“It’s in his best interest, that’s why he did it,” Paul said. “I don’t think he’s very apologetic. He’s doing it because some people were taking advertisements from his program. It was his bottom line he was concerned about.”
Inspired and nuanced analysis from Ron Paul on the apology from Rush Limbaugh on Saturday. The apology came after 6 sponsors stated that they would no longer advertise on his show. Late yesterday, ProFlowers became #7.

Rush Limbaugh is a Turd.
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 03/04/2012 15:38:42

And his wife is a spoiled bitch who is only interested in his money.

Actually, I don't know a thing about his wife, but I can say what I want because I'm an entertainer and I like to point out the absurdities in the media. Just like Rush doesn't seem to understand a thing about Sandra Fluke or why she was going to testify or indeed, what her testimony would be! Just like Rush can't grasp this basic concepts, neither can I. So, I can tell you with complete authority that Rush Limbaugh is a mentally disabled, drug addict that cannot achieve an erection without the use of drugs, sexual devices and viewing child porn.

Good Morning!

Apparently, a 747 full of cocaine disintegrated over my neighborhood recently, for there is a vast amount of strange white stuff all over the ground. Or maybe it's snow; I forget.

It seems like it was long ago, but it's been less than a week since Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) announced here intention to leave the Senate. That got me thinking a little bit. A few years ago now, we almost moved to Maine, and in doing my due diligence, I checked out the political situation. Uber-tea party governor Paul Lepage had yet to be elected, and the representatives in the state are the usual mixup of both parties. But the senators Snowe and Collins stood out to me. Both Republicans, but neither one of them overtly right wing....and both with the kind of common sense that seems to be unique to New England. It's the sort of image that our own Scott Brown (R-MA) wants for himself, but will never achieve.

Pain in the Gas, Pt. 2
Author: BobR    Date: 03/02/2012 13:35:12

On Wednesday, I wrote a blog about why gas prices are high, and why there is nothing a president can do about it (nor a presidential candidate). In short, the reasons are:

  • Oil is a commodity, and trading oil shares largely sets the price of crude
  • Refineries are closing, driving down supplies so that throws the supply/demand equation out of balance
  • Drilling here will take years to get oil online
  • Most of the untapped oil here in the U.S./Canada is more expensive to process

Tossing up a stub.

I've got little to say right at the moment. Actually, that isn't completely true, I just don't know what to say. It's a beautiful first day of March here in Virginia, but I am hearing that some areas are getting slammed with a bit of the white stuff.....

Hit me with something new!

Pain in the Gas
Author: BobR    Date: 02/29/2012 13:51:20

We've all watched with helplessness as the prices at the gas pump keep creeping up. It seems unfathomable that 5 years ago, the price had just gone over $2.00/gal. Why are gas prices so high? Will they ever go back down again? Is there anything that a politician can do about it?

To hear the Republican presidential candidates tell it (particularly Newt Gingrich), they have the magic bullet for high gas prices, and if you just elect them, they will deliver $2.50/gal gas:
Newt Gingrich, struggling to regain momentum in the Republican presidential primary, is leading the way, promising to get prices down to $2.50 per gallon.

"I've developed a program for American energy so no future president will ever bow to a Saudi king again and so every American can look forward to $2.50 a gallon gasoline," Gingrich said during his self-introduction at Wednesday's CNN debate
