Remodeling In Green

2013-06-28T19:37:45-04:00

The Boston Celtics said goodbye to an aging "Big Three" member last year (oddly replacing him with another aging shooter), and this year, with a draft day agreement with the Brooklyn Nets, have said goodbye to the other two. Word is out that the Nets and Celtics have agreed to...



The Joust The Facts "Quote Of The Day", Appetite For Destruction Edition

2013-06-07T20:14:44-04:00

From the inimitable Mark Steyn, writing at National Review and discussing the IRS' appetite for doing things that decent, honorable, moral government servants ought to know they shouldn't: If you don’t instinctively know it’s wrong to stay in $3,500-a-night hotel rooms at public expense, a revised conference-accommodations-guidelines manual isn’t going...



I Remember When ...

2013-06-06T22:37:52-04:00

... it wasn't cool for the federal government to spy on Americans ... it wasn't cool to lie to Congress ... journalists used unusual secret sources to break big stories, and were celebrated rather than tagged as criminals. ... it was potentially a big problem for the guys at the...

2013-02-23T08:53:46-05:00

Robert Tracinski writing on the electic car, that preposterous amalgam of fossil fuel snobbery and environmental ignorance foisted on Americans by modern green alchemists who seem to think fuel, in the form of electricity, miraculously appears in your house from the "ether". Electric cars never really made any sense. They...



The 24th Anniversary of Pan Am 103

2012-12-21T19:03:00-05:00

December 21st of 2012 is allegedly the date the world comes to an end, according to Mayan lore. I know, the Mayans came to an end long before this date, but who's counting. The date, however, has already been significant twice for my family and me. In 1988 Pan Am...



A Waste Of Ink At Reuters

The UNH/WMUR New Hampshire State Poll Pursues Credibility

2012-11-04T14:02:24-05:00

It doesn't do anything for a poll's credibility to be seen as inept once the results roll in. Which made the UNH/WMUR poll for several months fairly inexplicable. I work in a business that brings people from all walks of life into a private room with me, and often topics...

2012-10-30T23:36:05-04:00

Exactly four years ago, on October 30, 2008, The Joust The Facts endorsement for President of the United States reviewed the lack of accomplishment, inexperience, nebulous feel-good gestalt and nefarious associations of then-Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. It's worth revisiting not only to see what the problems with his candidacy...



Apropos of Nothing ...

2012-10-25T23:10:17-04:00

Just because I thought you needed a break from the endless stream of ads screeching about how Mitt Romney is going to steal your life savings and give it to Donald Trump and Bill Gates, or rip out your uterus and let his Supreme Court nominees play volleyball with it....



Can't The White House Handle The Truth?

2012-10-24T09:02:04-04:00

In A Few Good Men Jack Nicholson, as Col. Nathan Jessup famously declared to Lt. Daniel Caffey (played by Tom Cruise), "You can't handle the truth!" The question today is, can the White House? In the second presidential debate Barack Obama declared self-righteously that he had identified the Benghazi terrorist...
