All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Socialism and the Christian

Today I had to take a  road trip.  Coming back I was composing a post in my head. The post was about economics and a Christian world view.  I was so deeply in thought that I failed to see the Pennington County Sheriffs deputy until I made him chase me about ten miles with his lights on. Apparently its illegal to drive 80 miles an hour in South Dakota.  That's the bad news.  The good news is that in South Dakota they seem to think that people from Wyoming are too dumb to read.  The correct answer to "why can't you people from Wyoming read the speed limit sign?", is "well sir only about 2/3 of our elected officials can read and it ain't my turn to be mayor yet".  The good news is that I was able to remember to get my seat belt on about point two seconds before he got to my door and he decided to let me go with a warning as long as I promised to keep the seat belt on.

As soon as I get my train of thought back on the economics post, I get er done.  I know ya'll are eagerly waiting.
