Somebody Else Gets It

Friday, July 31st, 2009

When it comes to the blogosphere there  are a lot of days when I think I’m the only person who can grasp the obvious.  Luckily, today is not one of them.   Former WXNT-AM producer and now current Indiana Libertarian Party Executive Director Chris Spangle  penned a blog post this week basically telling the Capitol […]

I Hate to Say I Told You So…

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

But I told you so.  32-year old Shanisha Davis was atacked at the I-69 and Keystone off  ramp by a panhandler while trying to give him some money.   According to police reports, the woman  saw the man with a sign that said will work for food, tried to give him $5, but but he […]

Wednesday Wire

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

A few items of note to start out your morning.   Take them for what they are worth and feel free to discuss any of them. Indiana Congressman Dan Burton has his name attached to two pieces of legislation regarding the President and that silly birth certificate issue.  On the one hand, the Congressman is […]

Council Committee Holds Nose and Votes for Hotel Tax Increase

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

It was a vote nobody wanted, but by 5-1, the City-County Council Rules and Policy Committee moved forward tonight with a plan that would increase the local hotel tax by one percent to help bail out the Capitol Improvement Board.

Referendum Madness

Another day, another Indiana School District referendum.   This time it’s the Hamilton Southeastern School District.  The HSE Board voted Monday night to ask the taxpayers for a $5.5 million tax increase to make up for a funding shortfall.

Some Parents Just Don’t Understand

Monday, July 27th, 2009

File this one under some people just don’t get it.  An Indianapolis woman is upset that flyers have gone up in her neighborhood labelling her 17-year old son “dangerous.” Now at first glance you might think the woman had a point until you realize her sone has been arrested 22 times over the last three […]

Talk is Cheap and Political Talk is Worthless

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

When I twittered Friday night that two GOP Ward Chairman had been fired as Ward chairman (Liz Karlson and Chris Smith) I figured it would cause a tempest in a teacup type stir in the blogosphere even though most people in real life would care less because of the total inside baseball nature of the […]

Birth Pains

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I went to the post office today to pick up passport applications for my fiance and me; we honeymoon in St. Martin later this year.  While there,  I was reading through some paperwork and noticed something all the people who keep harping on this Barack Obama birth certificate nonsense, might want to check. The current […]

Budgets & Birth Certificates

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

A couple items popped up on my radar screen Wednesday that probably didn’t get much attention in the local media, so here they are now. Marion County Sheriff  Frank Anderson is reportedly rebuilding his office’s gang unit and traffic branch.   I’m confused as to why Anderson is doing this.  Most of his enforcement duties […]
