I’ll “Clue” you in later.

You’ll get culprit, weapon, the location.  See, posting has been light because I’ve been performing America’s autopsy.  The murder writeup is turning into a long piece and still needs editing.  So it’ll probably go up tomorrow.   Meanwhile, I continue to read the news and … Continue reading

Snake-in-the-grass oil.

Money-grubbing greedy Greenies.  I guess Al Gore is this guy’s hero.  If you’re going to scare-monger, don’t hold back! He also alleges that the Japanese government is trucking radioactive material from the Fukushima site all over Japan, in order to … Continue reading
