Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, especially our band of regular readers and commenters who have helped keep the conversation interesting, intelligent, snarky, enlightening, funny, pointed and genuinely entertaining. It’s been our busiest year ever, and the year isn’t even over yet. 2013 will bring some changes, and for the better. I’ll keep you posted […]

Mitt Romney has finished his acceptance speech, and I’m trying to get the kids’ stuff packed up for a mid-morning departure for a couple days off the grid. Well, maybe not entirely off the grid. I’m bringing my laptop just in case Joe Biden says or does something incredibly stupid that I can’t avoid commenting […]

Big Hollywood delivers the sad and stunning news that Andrew Breitbart, a courageous and relentless voice for conservatism and against out-of-control government, as well as a pro-life advocate, has passed away. He was 43. Prayers for Andrew’s wife and four children. Twitter is going bonkers with tributes, but the word those who knew Breitbart are […]

I’ll be spending Christmas with family and I hope you’re all doing the same. Hard to believe that 2011 is almost over, but that’s fine because 2012 is going to be pretty interesting. Merry Christmas all! And now, for your viewing pleasure, here’s possibly the worse Christmas-related movie of all time: Santa Claus Conquers the […]

I’ll be spending the day with the family at Cedar Point and probably won’t be back until Sunday afternoon at some point. Feel free to discuss any news of the day, which unless something of the “breaking” variety will probably be limited to Sarah Palin’s speech in Iowa. CNN is saying she won’t announce a […]

It’s time for the Project Valour-IT fundraiser. I’m proud to represent Team Marine, and it was an honor to be asked to help out once again this year. Instead of mirroring a post I wrote at Michelle’s place, just head over there for details on what Project Valour-IT is, and how you can help this […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms! I’ll be spending the day making sure my kids spoil their mom and then taking everybody out to visit my mother. Consider this an open thread for whatever’s on your mind. Two possible discussion points: Planned Parenthood is wishing moms a happy Mother’s Day using the occasion to […]

Today my youngest son took his shooting test as part of the hunter safety course he’s almost finished with. In the picture below he’s using a 20 gauge and taking aim at a disk of flying clay — that’s his instructor next to him. He hit the skeet on 60% of his shots, which I […]

It’s that day of the year that I’ll be once again hoping President Obama goes on TV and yells “April Fool,” finally revealing that it’s all been an elaborate joke — but unfortunately I doubt that’s going to happen. One story I’ve noticed a lot of outlets passing along is Paul Bedard’s article at US […]

My favorite holiday of the year is upon us, but I can’t say that without acknowledging those who are working the hardest today: cabbies and bail bondsmen. This is the day my people, and many others in solidarity, try to live up to Michael Bloomberg’s stereotype. As usual, every St. Patrick’s Day there are eco-weenies […]
