Phantom votes appeared in the special election in District 23 in New York.  There were more total votes than there were ballots cast.  The problem is that these numbers add up to 179 votes counted for the candidates, and there were only 148 ballots cast;  St. Lawrence County certified these numbe...

About 10 days ago, someone hacked into a server at a big climate research institute and downloaded a large number of files and archived emails.  They then made them available for the world to see. This institute and the people who sent the emails are the big time climate change players who the po...

William Bradford, who came over on the Mayflower and became the Governor of Massachusetts, took many notes in a diary and then later put them altogether in a book covering the history of Plimouth Plantation. After discovering this book a few years back, I've been making it a personal Thankgiving ...

This morning there was a feature post about the length of the signatures some attach at the the bottom of each one of their blog posts.

This little blurb in an article by Janet Tavakoli makes all this stimulus spending and bailout stuff so simple and clear.  She's responding to a silly remark that Warren Buffet recently made: Imagine this scenario: Warren grabs my credit card and charges twelve suits. When I object that I don't w...

Unfortunately, I'm seeing more foreclosures being trashed by their former occupants.  Many times the appliances and light fixtures are being torn out.  I guess they try to sell them on Ebay or something.  How much of the decrease in value for a foreclosure is due to this? I thank God that I haven...

I love YouTube.  I always fall asleep trying to stay up to watch Saturday Night Live.  Last night was a good one.  It had Obama and the Chinese President making their remarks at a press conference. It made me laugh more because of all of the  uproar over Obama recently bowing in front of the Japa...

Some of the best information is left in comments. Today I was reading a feature post, Did Mortgage Brokers Cause The Economic Collapse? .  It gave an anecdote about  a  slimy mortgage broker and asked whether mortgage brokers caused the economic collapse.  Many people have picked out targets and ...
