Tweet     I was having a conversation with someone last week when they recounted a conversation they had with someone else.  “He doesn’t like libertarians because he says he wants to help kids on seniors,” she said.  I was taken a little aback by that, because if that’s the image we libertarians have, it’s [...]

Down with hyphens

By   /  January 13, 2012  /  Outlook  /  Comments Off

Tweet       I’m sick of hyphens.  Oh, I still use them, but I’m sick of them.  I’m not alone either, because more and more people are starting to lash out about hyphens.

Tweet   Now that we know who our next mayor is, and I’ve addressed her directly (see last week’s Outlook), it’s time to address the city leaders as a whole.  You see, our economy sucks.  I could sugar coat it in such a way that sounds less offensive as a whole, but that just wouldn’t [...]

Tweet       I sat in a superior courtroom for endless hours, listening to lawyers speak.  Apparently, I had angered God and was being punished for whatever transgressions I had committed.  After said punishment, I deeply apologize for whatever I did to deserve that. However, there was something entertaining about that visit to a [...]

Tweet   Take a look at Albany.  Is it any better off than it was four years ago? Eight years ago? Twelve?  Of course it isn’t.  Only a fool would believe that it really is.  We have 10.4 percent unemployment, and that’s actually down from the previous month.  We have little prospect for new industry [...]
