Here are some links from perusing today's NYTimes I think are worth reading.
The Senate looks at raising taxes by taxing Internet sales (Is the party over?)
Can psychotherapy help old farts?
Can Americans be non-violent?
NO, I AM SORRY, THAT CLICKKKKKKKKKING SOUND IN YOUR COMPUTER MEANS YOUR PICTURES OF YOUR BABIES ARE NOT THERE ANYMORE!!! DID YOU BACK YOUR STUFF UP???
Just wanted to remind everyone out there to stop for a minute and back up your data to some other place besides your computer. It is just as heartbreaking for us to have to tell you this as it is to hear it. I personally have had to deliver this tragic news to 3 different families this week alone....

Red rooms done right are very classy and add pop to any home. Anyone that has attempted painting a room red finds out that it takes more than just applying a coat of paint. In order to make the room look uniformed you must first prime it with gray or black primer or flat paint. This gives a shadow behind the red allowing a smooth coat with excellent coverage.
We all heard of the phrase "spring cleaning". But this so true when it comes to the exterior of your home. pollen and debris sit over your windows and doors,in the groove of your siding this causes paint and stain failure which leads to wood rot.We suggest that you pressure wash every year after the pollen falls, this will help to prevent wood decay and prolongs the life of your paints and stains.
Decks need to be protected. Stains need to be reapplied when water stops beeding when wet.
In the following piece I conjure the idea that the way to fund mental health care might be to impose an excise tax on the purchase of or distribution of graphically violent content such as TV shows, movies and video games based on the degree of violence depicted in the content.
The biggest problem may be the constitutionality of taxing something so intertwined with speech. However, one quick thought is that the tax may solve this, at least in the context of movies, is a tax on the sale of t
You are absolutely right that a gun is just a tool but what you're missing is that a gun can be more than just a tool.
Think about tools for a minute and then think about Andy Rooney, late of 60 Minutes fame and his ancient typewriter that he used to write his witty editorials. He could have had the newest laptop with the fanciest word processing program but he held to his manual Royal typewriter circa 1945. Dare I say he loved it.

Eddie, you've done it now!
You've invented, in my mind, a new oxymoron.
We should endeavor to get Red State Socialism, placed on the oxymoron list.
Here is the official list for oxymoron's starting with R from http://www.oxymoronlist.com/

We all know that politics is more than theater ... it is often a magic show in the context of now you see it, now you don't.
The GOP position is that rates are fine where they are; we can deal with the loopholes and while we might claw back some from loopholes for this 'deal' we are experts in manufacturing loopholes ... some that can be very, very specific ... and these loopholes can be hidden as amendments in legislation of all kinds.
We all know that politics is not a game that is pl
The group is called NO LABELS
One of the leaders of it is Mark McKinnon - a Republican - who has been counseling those in congress to compromise. He's been counseling them to stay in Washington so they can get to know other MOC's (Members of Congress). Oh, and they have a program designed to make Congress work.
The first thing on the agenda is a provision that says, No budget, no pay. Congress has to pass a budget before they get paid.
There are a ton of other basically common se

What you don't realize is that what you're talking about on the other side is nothing like a desire to dole out goodies - that good free stuff - but rather a pragmatic understanding that people get really obnoxious ... and really really free ... if they have nothing, nada, to lose.
Oh a few in that circumstance will become clinically depr
A little known fact about the Romney name.
It would appear that his Great, Great grandaddy coined the name from his association with the Republican party when Utah was trying to get statehood. He was a leader in the Mormon church but more importantly, he was dyslexic. Yes, he was Dyslexic. He was also from the southeastern part of Europe where the names are particularly hard to spell and pronounce. He found it necessary to change his name like many millions of others from that region wh
My take on this is a bit more nuanced.
First, the film is nothing more than an excuse to whip up a mob and get their juices going.
In the case of the attack in Egypt and the silence of the current government; the manipulation you're seeing is one from the civilian "muslim brotherhood" faction that is and has been in an internal fight for power with the Egyptian military.
The US, since Camp David in 1979, has been funding and training the Egyptian military and the civilian group se
Wild and crazy revelation. I had written this short about a fellow I met in Watonga Oklahoma - Ernie Hoberecht - and I apparently initially misspelled the name back in 2003. Oh well, I have the feeling that those UPI underlings would find that not only funny, but fitting given the ego that was Hoberecht.
So you'll understand better, here is the link to him in google search.

The knee-jerk reaction to our aid package for Egypt is that since they attacked our embassy, we should cut them off and walk away.
In an earlier post in the referenced topic, I suggested that what we've had with Egypt is something akin to a marriage. With any marriage there are good times and bad.
Of course that analogy is far from perfect but it does help us understand some aspects of the relationship and why we should strive to be understanding; as we would be understanding of our s
For those who don't know, here is a glimpse of how politics actually works.
A couple of things I've heard regarding this years budget started to make sense today after Judy Horne made her comment about the meeting where the county chose to ask for the roll back. I think the stinger on her video which follows is Tommie Graham saying he agreed with some of what she said.
While for most, Ms. Horne's comments add to the drama, to me it is more how government works ... which frankly can be a

I have been referred to as the "Mystery Man" candidate for the House Seat in District 19, Paulding County. With that being said, I would like to pose a hypothetical question, to both of you. If it were revealed, that I had been arrested for Insurance Fraud, Simple Battery and had a Federal Tax

Whether it is illegal prescription drugs, illegal K2 or Spice, Meth, Heroin, Marijuana, etc., we have all been directly or indirectly affected by this family and life destroyer. Why does it continue to persist? Is this not one of Paulding Counties most urgent problems? I need your help, and it will only cost you the p
Tuesday night, after two weeks off, I happened to Catch Jon Stewart's return to the Daily Show comedy news.
He opened with the funniest, hardest hitting, self-deprecating video editorial in my memory. My jaw was agape.
Here it is in three installments. Watch one, watch the second and watch the third and you'll know how silly the polarizing language used by today's 'dividers' is ...
