Wisdom from U.S. Grant

 "I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution."

Win-Win proposition.

Want to help stop global warming and grow the economy and get rid of nuclear power plants and help the poor all at the same time? Then support fracking. If you are against global warming, and you should be, then you should also be for fracking. If you are against both, then look for "P" in the yellow pages, for psychiatrist.

My happy ending!

As many of you know, my dog Mikka (dog on the right) ran away for 30 days. I thought she was gone...until she wasn't. Here she is with my good friend Kathy Queck who found her in the woods around south Charlotte. My wife and I had committed to adopting a "rescue" English Springer Spaniel from the English Springer Rescue Association, thinking my dog was gone and wanting to do something to help another dog out that needed a forever home. And that is her "Xena" on the left. Mikka turned up two days before we got Xena and the people wanted to know if we were still going to go through with the adoption. I said heck yes! We committed and we are sticking to it. I went from one dog who is at gun dog school to three just like that. A nasty, nasty curve that life had thrown my way has now been nullified. My dog is home and has a new sister. As Winston Churchill once said, "there is no feeling in the world like being shot at and missed." Amen brother.

The NY Times carries water for the murderous thug Putin!

From world chess champion Garry Kasparov's Facebook page:

“I cannot stomach linking to it on my page, but The New York Times has just published an op-ed by Vladimir Putin! You expect a dictator to broadcast propaganda but it is to the great shame of the NY Times they are providing him with their platform, treating it like a serious message. While Putin was writing about peace and international law and God (!) with one hand for the Times, he was signing more weapons orders for al-Assad with the other hand. Putin has also sent Russian personnel to Syria to help al-Assad slaughter the Syrian people. And regarding peace and international law, what of Putin's invasion of Georgia, where Russian troops still occupy Georgian territory?

Again, all this is to be expected from Putin, and it would be predictable and laughable to see this article in Russia Today or one of the many other Kremlin-controlled outlets. But to have it in The New York Times, presented without comment, is a huge blow to their credibility.”

Read Henninger and you know what to think.
