Coming soon to America?
If the unemployment picture does not improve immediately, we may see this happening in the United States.
There are hundreds of thousands and maybe millions of people who are going to be losing unemployment benefits.
The 99-week maximum of unemployment and extensions is gone. Read more »
The New Your Assembly has a bill that bans the use of salt in all restaurants.
A10129 was introduced on March 5th.
“PROHIBITION ON SALT; RESTAURANTS. 1. NO OWNER OR OPERATOR OF A RESTAURANT IN THIS STATE SHALL USE SALT IN ANY FORM IN THE PREPARATION OF ANY FOOD FOR CONSUMPTION BY CUSTOMERS OF SUCH RESTAURANT INCLUDING FOOD PREPARED TO BE CONSUMED ON THE PREMISES OF SUCH RESTAURANT OR OFF OF SUCH PREMISES.”
If this passes, we will see the ratings of its restaurants plummet quicker that Obama’s popularity in the last year.
It will be hard to find even a one-star eatery, let alone one with 5 stars.
Go to Philadelphia to eat for now. At le3ast their legislators are not foolish enough to mess with their Philly Cheesesteaks.
I was thinking the other day about my hometown Philly. Yes, grew up in Glenolden, a ‘burb of Philly, which makes me from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Long before Rocky ran on the steps of the Art Museum, but after Franklin had a museum named after him, there was the Philly Steak Sandwich. Read more »
The ever-present politically correct liberals ensconced in our country’s departments have been calling the Mexican Swine Flu the H1N1 Flu. I guess they do not want to offend Mexico, but this particular strain was unique to Mexico until it spread to a human and then to the rest of the world. It would also offend Muslims if they were told they had the Swine Flu. Read more »
Here is what we need to do to help congress:
- Cut all their wages to the amount that unemployment provides.
- Prevent all of them from using any other funds (either personal assets or bailout funds) to buy food.
- Limit their time in congressional sessions to one day a month so they can’t make the economy any worse; the free market will rebound on its own. Read more »
Now, out of work and poor, I decided that I could not afford to sit around on the couch and let my mind and body turn to mush in front of the TV. I developed a fitness regimen that does not cost any money, and actually saves money. Read more »
Members of congress, as usual, are blaming someone other than themselves. It seems like victimization, once one of the mainstays of the liberals, has invaded the Republican Party. You should notice that I did not mention conservatives. It appears that most overweight members of congress, as a whole, are blaming their fatness on the stress of their jobs during the bad economy.

You may have remembered a handout that was originally posted on the GS2AC web site about Open Space District suggestions on what to do if you encounter a mountain lion in California and also what they recommend you to do if you are attacked. Of course they said “Weapons: Weapons of any kind are prohibited on preserves.” I sent it along to a great radio host, Brian Sussman, and he just had a ball with it. Click here to hear what Brian and Melanie Morgan had to say.
You may wonder about the title of this entry. I am a volunteer Hunter Safety Instructor and am well aware of the California laws that prohibit killing or even injuring a California Mountain Lion. The title is not recommending what to do to the beast, but rather what they can do to us. Read more »
On the Rising Sun of Nihon, a site about doing Business in Japan, I found something interesting. Titled, “Speeches of Obama” book sells 400,000 copies in two months, and teaches Japanese English, too, this article caught my attention, not because I wonder why anyone would want to spend hard-earned money on copies of teleprompter canned speeches written by a few of Obama’s cohorts, but by the fact there is practically nothing ever written by Obama available for the American Public to see.
Now, the Japanese culture can be a bit strange for Westerners. I now like sushi, except for that nasty sea urchin recommended for mature pallets only and their fish eggs, which, in my opinion are useful only for bait while fishing for some more sushi. Their culture in American Politics escapes me completely. Read more »

Imagine a high-end restaurant offering some of the following faire:
Bacon, Buttered Toast, Eggs and Tomato Sauce
Crispy Duck and Hoi Sin
Fish and Chips
Chili and Chocolate Read more »
