It’s 24 hours since the election since the polls closed. I cannot believe that BJ Barnes lost to a person who is relatively almost completely unknown in the Piedmont. We’ve never heard of him before the election. What I have...

Miscellaneous musings. If premium gas is 93 octane, regular gas is 87 octane and mid-grade mixes the two, how come its octane is just 89 rather than 90?  From above the North Pole the Earth spins counter-clockwise, with the sun...

You know it is absolutely amazing how little politicians of this nation care about the people and the people’s will in this nation. They’re ruining people’s lives left and right and couldn’t care less. It’s all about the power....
