Rand Paul: who are we giving arms to?

Friend or foe? We don't know

Friend or foe? We have to arm them to know them

No one seems to know, but Rand was one of the few senators (78-22) to vote against the idea. The GOP and the Democrats stood shoulder to shoulder on this one  which should tell you all you need to know about why the Tea Party sprung up from our soil.

Open house report

520 Cognewaugh

520 Cognewaugh

I really liked 520 Cognewaugh Road, $3.495 million. It’s at the top of Cognewaugh, just off of Stanwich, so that difficulty is eliminated, and the house itself sits on three flat, private acres. Fabulous inside, I’m not as keen on its Adirondack look as the current owners, but that is literally just a matter of a paint job. The interior is not all moose heads and stuffed lake trout.  Plenty of room, finished basement, pool and pool house. Seems like a lot of house for this price.

12 Horseshoe Rd, $1.8 million, is certainly …ah…something. I liked it – very contemporary, very, very vertical, perhaps best suited for a NYC couple looking for a weekend retreat, but that’s just my guess. Price seems as steep as its stairs, but again, that’s just my opinion. Interesting house that would probably be fun to live in.

31 Owenoke Way

31 Owenoke Way

31 Owenoke Way in Riverside, $4.395 million, is as close to generic white bread as you’ll find in Riverside these days. Very well made, very boring, exactly like its compatriots on Bramble, Druid and everywhere else in Riverside. The reason for that cookie-cutter-sameness, of course, is that this is what sells. Buy it and be safe; when you move on, your corporate relocation service will be grateful for the easy resale.

And if, while you do live here, you lose your way at a key party one night, no fears: your friend’s layout will be identical to yours.

Anything you can do I can do better

Onward to victory

Onward to victory

Obama takes personal control of war in Syria.

The man who has boasted that he is the better speechwriter, political director and intelligence evaluator than everyone else surrounding him has decided that he will direct, strike-by-strike, the battle against ISIS.

Even Abraham Lincoln let U.S. Grant conduct battlefield operations but then, Lincoln was no Obama.
