Yeeha, cowboys, we done corraled a good lot of thirty-one quotes of the day in September. That’s a whole passel. (Then again, you ever hear of anyone having only a half passel of anything?) Here’s the list: More

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Cars: An Homage to Unreliability

 

I believe one of problems with today’s cars is that they are too reliable. I know it sounds strange, but stick with me for a bit.

When I was 16 years old, my father bought a 1976 Triumph Spitfire that I was allowed to use. He didn’t really buy it “for” me, he bought it for himself. If you’re not aware, British sports cars at the time were notoriously unreliable and required constant maintenance.

Wow, it is getting to the point where my smile never goes away. Getting America back feels so good! I spotted this story on FoxNews.com and I knew I had to share it. DOJ Files Suit Against Company For Allegedly Not Hiring Americans:

The Department of Justice announced Thursday it has filed a lawsuit against a Colorado corporation for allegedly discriminating against U.S. workers.

Obama spent eight years at war with the private sector. He sent in waves of regulatory shock troops; carpet-bombed the economy with litigators; airlifted pallets of money to corporate political cronies working behind enemy lines; launched attack after IRS attack on CEOs who supported the wrong people and causes; and erected barricades of rejected project […]

Since the birth of Bitcoin in 2009, the concept of a purely digital currency with a distributed ledger has been the subject of intense interest from venture capitalists and central banks to libertarians and drug dealers. There are now, apparently, over 900 digital currencies existing either as theoretical implementations or actually in circulation. The number […]

Today is Thunderbirds Day: 52 years ago the program premiered on British tv. It meant a lot to me in the Sixties and Seventies, and it has had a profound influence on a lot of people. I’ve always found the basic idea inspiring, an organization dedicated to rescuing people who need it, without government direction […]

Since I’ve retired, I’ve decided to do research on various topics, then post the results on Ricochet. For my first project, I’ve decided to look into promising new technology—in particular, sex robots. However, they cost a lot, so I’ve decided to open a GoFundMe account to help defray the expense. Yes, I’m dipping my toe […]

I’ve been a fan of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s comedic acting since her days as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live.” I wish her a speedy recovery from her upcoming treatment for breast cancer. But I was appalled (though not surprised) that upon learning of her diagnosis, she immediately tweeted the following:

1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.

(Wherein I answer at least one of the questions posed by @susanquinn in her recent post.) Ten years ago today I got the phone call that I’d been expecting for several months, but kept on hoping would never come. My sister told me that you were gone. I don’t think I’ve completely recovered. Oh, I’ve […]

David French has a column in NRO titled, “An Open Letter to Conservatives about the NCAA.” I agree with the general premise about college student athletes getting compensated, and being allowed to accept other gratuities. But I question the practice of colleges and high schools even sponsoring sports. Few countries bind their schools to sports […]

This weekend started off with a bang as the No. 16 Washington State Cougars upset the No. 5 USC Trojans on Friday night, 30-27. I’m hoping my Texas Tech Red Raiders can work some similar upset magic when they take on the No. 15 Oklahoma State Cowboys at home in Lubbock this Saturday evening. More

You walk a familiar route. Again, there is litter on the ground. You pick it up and dispose of it when you can. There is always litter these days. And it’s getting worse. Every week there is more. You had hoped your example would inspire others, though that might not have been your full purpose. […]

The day the music died. That is Don McLean’s term for the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson. Funny enough, that was close to the day that music really died. It was just about that date, February 3 1959, that the last original song was written. There are only so many notes, […]
