The New Solution

With exciting developments in Ohio and Wisconsin we are paving our way to an enticing new future. But I can't help thinking, getting rid of collective bargaining is thinking too small. We need to find a way to get rid of all employee bargaining. Only by doing so can we begin to address issues like corporate profitiability, the mortgage crisis, pollution, immigration and overpopulation.

In the 21st Century economy, American workers have to understand that we are competing with countries where the promise of room and board is enough. So much of our great American society was built with an international labor force that understood what competing in a global economy meant in a world where the right to hard labor, by itself, was all the payment needed. We need to return to those days if we ever hope to make our country strong again.

Cubs in mid season form already

Fight erupts in Cubs’ dugout

Last Modified: Mar 2, 2011 04:08PM

The Cubs are blowing up on and off the field. Literally.

After another error-filled start to their Spring Training game today, things blew up in the dugout when a few players scuffled, including starting pitcher Carlos Silva.

The Cubs made three errors behind Silva in the first inning and fell behind 6-0 vs. the Milwaukee Brewers in Maryvale, Ariz. When the players returned to the dugout, a fight started and had to be broken up by players and coaches.

After the fight, Silva left the dugout with the strength coach Tim Buss, but he was still jawing at someone as he left. Silva was whisked past the media on a golf cart and left the ballpark without comment.

The Cubs had nine errors in three games coming into today’s game.

The answer is NOOOOOOO!!!!

Are we eating too much bacon?

Easy on those pork chops, the British government advised on Friday.

I don't know about all of you, but I don't listen to the Breeetish government. Unless the 'Mercan gubmint sez it, I ain't gonna believe it. And if they do, they'll be infringing on my liberty, so I still won't listen. Not that I actually eat bacon...
