Happy Trails

Retire it is.

After the snow yesterday, I've decided to take my talents to just about any warm island beach.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

I just have to get the Mrs. to go along.

When I started this blog, on this date 8 years ago, my plan was to comment about the world in general and nothing in particular...Nailed it!

I did it for an outlet and a way to amuse myself, I had no idea people would read it or even laugh.

Along the way I broke this story, Star Bungled Barry, which received acknowledgement from PJ Media.

Made the Ragister admit I was right and they were wrong, (Stop The Presses).

Got Bret Hayworth and the Sioux City Journal to issue a retraction and an apology to Congressman Steve King, (I Stand Corrected).

We got read in Washington D.C., and at the Iowa Statehouse.

I had the opportunity to meet a couple of nice people, Grant Young (Child Please) and Kevin Hall.

Plus, I enjoyed the support of our friend Cal (Freedom's pal) and my wife.

Turn out the lights
The party's over
They say that
All good things must end

As always, Thanks for reading.

Not sure if I want to resume or retire and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Hi Hi Hi

The Ragister is reporting video from Seth Rogen's recent testimony before a Senate subcommittee, chaired by CommieTommie Harkin, is the second most viewed on C-SPAN.

Afterwards, Rogen was asked which politician he’d most like to get high with and Rogen responded -- That Harkin guy seemed pretty cool. I’d go with him.

CowaBONGa Dude and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Strange since Rogen had earlier noted, about Harkin, I don’t know if you know who I am at all and you told me you have never seen ‘Knocked Up,’ Mr. Chairman. It’s a little insulting.

Say Seth, that's because you decided to have the baby in the movie.

If, instead, you'd have decided to have an abortion, not only would Harkin have seen it, he'd have probably helped get government funding for the film.

How Winter Killed Our Souls

After having made my annual Mecca to Maui, I have no right to complain about the length of Winter.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

It was extremely sad yesterday when I took the dog out and she soon began whimpering and crying because the pads on her paws became frozen.

Peanut Butter

WHO TV HD aired this story yesterday morning.

PEANUT BUTTER: Hy-Vee And Skippy Help To Share The Spread

In the video that accompanied said story, a Mother discussed her son and his affection for Peanut Butter, but not Crunchy Peanut Butter because he doesn't like Peanuts.

What a goober and the scientific community is united in that fact.


I was so bored last evening that I actually watched a bit of the Academy Awards.

Sally Fields introduced some segment and in it mentioned every corner of the globe.

The Oscar for stupidity must go to her, and the scientific community is united in that fact, as the globe is round with no corners.

It's not the first time she's used that line.

In an award she'll present to Steven Spielberg, Fields says -- "Steven's sense of adventure and stunning, ever-evolving gift of filmmaking has affected every corner of the globe"

Far Far Away

According to Radio Iowa, State Senator David Johnson left Des Moines for Ocheyedan on Wednesday because of the latest blizzard to hit Iowa.

Johnson was said to be Concerned about how road conditions might be when you live probably closer to International Falls than you do to Des Moines


And the scientific community is united in that fact.

According to Google Maps, the distance from Ocheyedan to International Falls, Minnesota is 441 miles (Yahoo has it at 484 miles).

Google Maps has the distance from Ocheyedan to Des Moines at 228 miles (Yahoo says 229).

Sorry Senat-err.

You Said

Most weekday mornings I tune the TV into the Mike & Mike radio show on ESPN2.

This morning the two Mike's, Greeny & Golic, were going on about how Golic had jinxed the U.S. Women's Hockey team by prematurely tweeting they were winning gold against Canada, they didn't, and how Golic shouldn't do the same to the Men's team.

Greeny went so far as to say an "anecdote" was needed to counteract Golic's jinx.

Which made me think of a bit by Ron "Tator Salad" White -- "If I knew the difference between anecdote and antidote, my friend Bob Schneider would be alive today. He got bit by a copperhead and I'm reading him humorous stories out of Reader's Digest."

Greeny also is known to "unquote" a quote.

You can't unquote a quote and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Mike "Greeny" Greenberg is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

They must be so proud.

Hard Habit To Break

Maybe it's the weather.

It could be some stuff going on in my life.

Whichever it is, when the King of SNARK can't make fun of --

Jack ASS...err, Hatch

(Hatch raps Branstad’s minority hiring record, promises to hire blacks, gays, others for key posts)

CommieTommie Harkin  (Harkin endorses Hatch for Iowa governor)

ASSME (Key labor groups endorse Hatch for Iowa governor)

John Kerry (John Kerry calls climate change deniers members of 'Flat Earth Society')

Bill Nye (Nye Goofs! Holds up pic of Arctic while talking about Antarctic)

The hypocrisy of a government that won't plow your street, but will fine you if your sidewalk isn't cleared in 48 hours (SNOW PLOWING: City Utilizing Warmer Weather)

100 Grannies (New push to ban plastic bags gains traction in Iowa City)

Or even Clowns (National clown shortage may be approaching, trade organizations fear)

It ain't looking good for the Liter and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Nowhere To Run

In earth-shattering news

Democrat Chet Culver: I won’t run for public office in 2014

My mistake, the Earth would be shattering if the Big Lug Nut was running

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

Sweaty Chetty says -- I am excited to support the Iowa Democratic Party’s great ticket of candidates up and down the ballot 

That leaves the Dummycrats with Jack ASS...err, Hatch for Governor and Staci Appel-sauce for brains for CONgress.

I likes them odds.

In her Ragister report, Jennifer Jacobs states Culver currently runs the Culver Group, a consulting firm.

No, The Culver Group is land surveying and construction firm in the state of California.

The Chet Culver Group is the Big Lug Nut's business.

Labelled With Love?

In this Ragister story

'No Labels' movement focused on toning down partisanship gains little traction in Iowa

Jennifer Jacobs mentions the party of those involved, which seems to defeat the purpose.

We've said it before -- Calling yourself "No Labels" is a label and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The "No Labels" group says lawmakers aren’t pressured to join, and there’s no gotcha list aimed at punishing those who don’t.

Maybe not by the group, but certainly by the media.

As Jacobs noted, in Iowa the two CONgressional members are Democrats and the the state-level work is being led by a Democrat.


I'm amused by the media circus surrounding the announcement that Michael Sam is gay.

My thoughts on the likelihood of the first "out" NFL player?

Let me  paraphrase Jerry Seinfield --

I mean, this has gotta represent the actual pie chart of America? Who cares? Winning is the world that I live in. You’re a winner, I’m interested. You’re not a winner, I’m not interested. 

Some talk on ESPN had Sam coming out before he was outed, if that's true, it's sad.

As an aside, why is outing someone not considered bullying or harassment?

Back to Seinfeld, he's more interested in funny, so is the Liter.

We'll wager that Stephen A. Smith will never say, about Michael Sam, the dude can flat out ball or he's a baller and the scientific community is united in that fact.
