Keep On Truckin’…….

“Well, I pulled outta Pittsburgh, Rollin’ down the Eastern seaboard, I got my diesel wound-up and she’s rollin’ like never before”….. (a little quote from “Six Days on the Road”)…..

You Call This Government?……

How could a government agency allow a person to “take-home” the personal records of 26.5 million veterans on a personal computer?…… One of which was probably mine, knowing my luck……. I guess they were going to do an “all-nighter” if they were going to process 26.5 million records in one night!….. But then, the personal […]

Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…….

Automotive Future…..

Does anyone think that the automotive manufacturers are going to offer any viable alternatives to the dinosaur-powered models on the market now?…..

Like the FBI….and the CIA…Dig it

I don’t believe I have ever witnessed a regime that will influence the (mis) direction of our country as much as this one.

He appointed the successor to Greenspan, which greatly impacts the financial direction […]
