Why Obamacare won

“Let’s talk about [US Supreme Court Chief Justice John] Roberts. I’m going to tell you something that you’re not going to hear anywhere else, that you must pay attention to. It’s well known that Roberts, unfortunately for him, has suffered from epileptic seizures. Therefore he has been on medication. Therefore neurologists will tell you that medication used for seizure disorders, such as epilepsy, can introduce mental slowing, forgetfulness and other cognitive problems. And if you look at Roberts’ writings you can see the cognitive disassociation in what he is saying,” – radio host Michael Savage.

I’m almost back

From Alaska and a long black out on news from Duluth. Sorry to hear about the flooding. We enjoyed three sunny days that had the Alaskan’s blinking their eyes in disbelief. Not sure if I’ll blog much anytime soon. Decided not to run for Congress a month ago when I began spending more on house maintenance than a Congressman makes in a year’s salary and far more than any Congressman earns.

I’ve kind of enjoyed keeping my mouth shut (or fingers bound) as the case may be.
