    Well, we’ve now maxed out our Citi Dividend Platinum rewards for the year ($300) and have broken through the old limit ($500) for our Citi Driver’s Edge card (it’s since been raised to $1,000/year). This brings our total to a bit ove…

  3. Don’t Cry For Japan

    This is probably going to be one of the harshest posts I have ever written, but I have had it.

    The Real Scandal At Err America

    While the right understandably concentrates on the Err America scandal, there is something bigger going on here. As people in West Virginia know all too well, “charities” and government programs can become corrupted. Their boards are big and filed wi…

  10. Untouchable Poster Mom: Cindy Sheehan

    Ghouls gone wild

    There is a special place in hell reserved for those who are both self-righteous and opportunistic, who see the most solemn moments as excuses for pushing the product. Peter Jennings wasn’t even cold yet when this hit Michelle Malkin’s mailbox:

    Ol’ Andy Rooney, God love him, just keeps getting crazier and crazier, I think. Check out his latest rant:
