If you’re a WordPress blogger, then you recognize this graphic. It’s the “cover” of the 2012 annual report for each blog. I thought it would be fun today to do a little retrospective on our first year of blogging here at Two Heads are Better Than One….
[Of course, what’s “fun” for me may be a dead bore for you…so please feel free to walk quietly away and leave me to my navel-gazing. You won’t hurt my feelings. Check back tomorrow when JTR will have something much more interesting for you, I’m sure!]
A good friend of mine posted this message on Facebook recently:
Don’t want to make resolutions you will break all too soon, but want to be intentional about the direction your life is heading in the next year? Here is a tool to spend a little time evaluating your life holistically at the turn of the New Year.
She included a link to a website called reviveourhearts. com, where you can fill out a “Personal Vitality Plan” (a downloadable PDF) which examines 12 areas of your life, including not only the usual suspects, i.e.:
Yeah, I’m a huge, unapologetic Steyn fan: sue me.
Have you read his books? As far as I’m concerned, if someone doesn’t enjoy his writing style, insight & wit, well…there may be no hope for them.
This post? Great stuff; be sure to read it all.

A week ago on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” David Gregory brandished on screen a high-capacity magazine.
To most media experts, a “high-capacity magazine” means an ad-stuffed double-issue of Vanity Fair with the triple-page perfume-scented pullouts. But apparently in America’s gun-nut gun culture of gun-crazed gun kooks, it’s something else entirely, and it was this latter kind that Mr. Gregory produced in order to taunt Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.

A classic post on the idiocy of our current economic policy, as seen through the eyes of a businessman.
Our thanks to blogger UTAH over at ‘The Rio Norte Line‘ for the loan…

Originally posted on October 22, 2011 but re-posted in honor of the fiscal cliff. Still true and the math is just this simple.
People say that government can’t be run like a business. I guess that depends on what the true objectives are. Businesses can’t chase every opportunity or customer and they can’t provide every service or product or they will fail. When viewed in this light, business does have a lot in common with government. I think that is why the Founders gave us the Declaration and the Constitution (and made it changeable, but after a long and thoughtful process). If I look at the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, I would compare them to a business’ statement of core values (the Declaration) and a mission statement (the Constitution).
Sort of like the old analogy, “when the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a…

I went to the store last weekend to buy some replacement 100-watt light bulbs….and I couldn’t find any.
Now, they had puh-lenty of bulbs: the squiggly, wiggly ones, along with several other shapes I’d never seen before. Plus, they also had a modest section of the normal incandescent 60- and 75-watt bulbs, but no 100’s.
And then I recalled, again, the Great Light Bulb Debacle®.
If you need a refresher on this subject, or if you’d just appreciate a fresh excuse to grind some of the enamel off your teeth, here you go (h/t the Washington Times):

Using your opponent’s own weapons against them is a centuries-old tactic, and yet it’s often brutally effective.
Our thanks to ‘Nice Deb‘ for the post….
Thomas Lifson of the American Thinker is noticing a growing trend within conservative ranks – the embracing of Alinsyite tactics in dealing with the Socialist left. Some of us have been doing it for awhile – it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when, but I know I personally, have had no problem using ridicule as a potent weapon against ridiculous lefties. It’s especially gratifying when used against thin skinned narcissists – (not mentioning any names.)
Following Alinsky’s rules would seem counter-intuitive for people with moral scruples – Saul Alinsky was an evil man with evil intent. Conservatives have no interest in accumulating “Power — not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have”, for instance. Yet power is the main motivator for the left. Democrats don’t care a whit about the fiscal cliff – they may pretend that they do, but tax increases on millions of Americans…
