Obama’s Legacy Of Deceit

It’s been quite a while since we featured Victor Davis Hanson, no good reason for it, it simply hasn’t happened. But he wrote one of the best articles on why Obama’s legacy is so tainted with most of us. Here’s some In its remaining days in power, the Obama administration suddenly punished Vladimir Putin’s Russia […]

Why the Electoral College? Because State and Regional Diversity Matters.

One of my very favorite blogs, Grassroots in Nebraska (GIN), has undertaken to explain, pretty much after every election why the electoral college, especially as implemented in Nebraska and Maine, is by far the most fair and equitable method of electing the president. A few highlights. Where you live, your day-to-day experiences gained through interacting […]

I Hear There’s Going to be a Debate…

tonight. Will I watch? Perhaps. Will I change my mind? Unlikely. Still, if you’re undecided you should watch, and carefully. Part of the reason I’m unexcited are the candidates. Yes, one is worse, maybe much worse than the other. But to be honest, my vote doesn’t matter a damn. If Nebraska three went for anybody […]

The Price of Freedom

Image via Wikipedia I wrote this back in 2012 and I think it’s worth a revisit. Let’s start with a song, shall we: Keep that in mind, we’ll be coming back to it. As I sit here in my office, looking out the window, I can see 7 of the great American migration routes, from […]

I’m not the problem, by Dave Miller |

From Leavenworth Street, the best of Nebraska political blogs. He said it, but I wish I had! Dave Miller is a contributing writer on Leavenworth St. He is a former talk show host and has done every media job in-between. He is perfectly aware his personality and opinions are keeping him out of the Nebraska […]

Progressivism Is a Long-Term Threat to the Rule of Law

Many know how much I dislike Donald Trump. It predates the 2016 campaign. He strikes me as an opportunist who plays the system, without ethics, or morals, and as a blowhard, with very few redeeming social qualities. I wouldn’t care to even have a beer with him, let alone any closer association. Nevertheless, I may […]

5 years on Neo

The blogging world is, as Neo and I have often had occasion to comment, an odd one. Posts on which one has laboured hard go down poorly, ones where less perspiration has been expended, go down a bomb, and anything controversial will get comments. But inspiration sometimes flags, and when I look back to who […]

Sunday Ride

You know when I was a kid, every once in a while on a nice Sunday afternoon my folks would decide to just go for a ride. It was a nice custom that seems to have died out, mostly. But this is kind of a virtual one, for out here. Enjoy! Continue reading… . . . → Read More: Sunday Ride

Nebraska Repeals Strict Licensing Laws for Hair Braiders

Better late than never, I suppose. A cosmetology license, required for hair braiding? Really? Here: from the Daily Signal. Just two weeks ago, Nebraskans who wanted to make money braiding hair had to undergo 2,100 hours of training to obtain a cosmetology license, which state officials say dedicates little time to natural hair braiding techniques. […]

Common Sense, Nebraska Style

The other day, my junior Senator, Ben Sasse, had a few things to say about Donald’s Trump’s candidacy. he was plain spoken and right, I think. WHY I RAN FOR SENATE ***No, I’m not a career politician. (I had never run for anything until being elected to the U.S. Senate fifteen months ago, and I […]

The view from afar

It will soon be time for Neo to go East – which never seems quite the thing, as I always think of him in terms of the West and the wilds of Nebraska. I recall from being in the States for a year or so in the early 90s that the thing which hit me […]

Of Tar and Feathers, and Smoothbore Muskets

Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) was out in San Bernadino the other day, and he has some things to say. He’ll get no argument from me on any of that since it’s simple common sense. But since he’s being Nebraska nice, there’s more to it than that. Because the Islamic Jihadis aren’t the only ones who dislike […]

Why on Earth do You Want to Farm 2.0 | Gardens, Combines, and Memories

This gentleman, who I have just found thanks to Lafayetteangel, who earned her screen name this time, is like me a refugee from Indiana, who has found a home out here on the Nebraska prairie. He’s had many of the same experiences, and in fact, I suspect he lives less than twenty miles from me, […]

Home, and it’s Lovely Out Here

Sometimes we get so involved with all the problems in the world that we forget the good stuff. Yesterday I was chatting with a friend and we were discussing our states, and it struck me that Nebraska is mighty pretty, and I haven’t shared that with you guys for quite a while. So here you […]

The ‘Good’ Old Days, or Were They?

We often talk here about ‘The Good Old Days’ but you know, for those of us who have been around a few years, we often look back through our rose tinted rear view mirrors. In many ways, things are much better than they ever have been. I’m an electrician, mostly. I can hold my own […]

Endings and 2015

As many of you know, I go east for Christmas with my family. I usually make the journey by train. I find the journey relaxing, and a time to change gears. It also has to do with my dislike of our airports anymore. Like many others, I find our so-called airport security system to be […]

Christmas Schedule

As many of you know, traditionally, I go east to be with my family at Christmas. This year is no exception, I’m leaving this evening, so posting will continue to be sparse until the first of the year. I think (perhaps hope is the word) I may be ready to resume normal service at that […]

Starting Another Year

I think it very important to thank Jess for her wonderful article yesterday. She said many nice things about me, some of which are true. 🙂 Where she is really right, is the strain of writing a blog. I decided quite early that it was reasonable to post at least once a day, and while […]

Video Monday: The (Mostly) Whittle Edition

In a sense, I’m cleaning up after the holiday, these have been in the queue for less than a week. All are valuable, and all but one feature Bill Whittle. Normally I would say enjoy, but in this case, pay attention and learn, and start thinking how we are going to fix it. Obamadelphia, well, […]
