There is a reason why my grandmother, a good New York City Irish catholic despised the man. She thought Roosevelt was a hairs breadth short of being a dictator.

Where I live they are building houses again. The neighborhood beside me should have been built 5 years ago and finally the bulldozers are in motion again. But dont call it a recovery.

We the People beat back SOPA and we beat back 2 prior versions of CISPA. But as we predicted the government has returned with another version of the bill.

Word coming down the anecdotal (and now non-anecdotal) grapevine is that Obamacare is a developing nightmare.

I grew up with football. I like football. I still watch college football. But the NFL long ago lost its shine for me.

The GOP believes that the rank and file will vote for their candidate no matter what

We should do a lot more than complain. We the taxpayers should insist that the salaries for government employees be indexed to the average pay in a municipality.

People want movies. They want stories. That isnt going to change. But the old way of doing movie business, with large fixed costs and huge personnel overhead (at least for Hollywood movies) just doesnt make sense.

The biggest variable (perhaps its more of a constant) in the crony equation is the culture of unaccountability which pervades Washington DC.

I think Stephen Colbert is very funny. Ive watched him for over a decade. But he is a partisan and a statist.

In the wake of the Cromnibus debacle, Republican congressional leadership pretty much turned their backs on wave voters for short term gain (and Democratic leaders did the same). Multiple readers at have asked, Well... now what?

If there are piles of taxpayer dollars laying around the contractors are going to find a way to get at them. Like a dead gazelle on the savanna, the crony jackals will always descend. The procurement people will find a way.

This is the sort of thing which happens when the country has an Attorney General with an ax to grind. (Lord, dont they all? But the current one is worse than usual.)

And truly, from start to finish Obamacare has been one well documented lie after another.

Hillary's not the conniving, social climbing, callous, self aggrandizing crony capitalist who gets paid $300,000 per speech who takes piles of money from Goldman Sachs and the rest of Wall Street that I thought she was. The following video shows me this.

Its hard to imagine but just a few years ago Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Pintrest, Instagram, and the rest generally werent seen as important to almost anyone in the non-tech business world.

There is little hope for progress on the crony capitalist front with Boehner and McConnell in power. But the alternatives (for the time being) are Pelosi and Reid 2 crony capitalists of the highest order. So what are we to do?

Yeah thats what I want. Please tax me more. Please make it harder for me to start a business. Please make it even harder for me to hire someone. Please mess up the healthcare system even more...
