Bye Bye Newt

Two things. First of all, if ABC news has this interview which could devastate Gingrich's campaign, then why wait. Just talking about it now is impacting the race. And two, if ABC news airs this when will the LA Times release the Obama Tapes?

Sweet Economic Freedom

Reason Magazine hits it out of the park with this article Does the Constitution Protect the Unenumerated Right to Economic Liberty?


Okay, it is easy to complain so it should be easy to praise as well. I recently won and received a gift certificate for Needless to say, it did not stay unspent long (like seconds). There was a slight problem with the order and when I called to inquire, Cathy from's customer service informed me that one bottle from my order was missing. I could wait until the order was completed and so aside from some chatting 'cause I'm a talker, the call was over. Well, imagine my delight when I open my email and find out that Cathy from not only removed the missing bottle from the order so it could be shipped to me right away, AND no only did Cathy search the warehouse and find the missing bottle and arrange for that bottle to be shipped to me as well. Cathy from also waived the shipping fees! (Yippee! Enough for another bottle!) I responded with the following email below:
Dear Cathy, You are wonderful. Thank you so much for your help and over-the-top assistance with my order. Please pass this message on to your supervisor or send me their email and I will tell them directly how thoughtful and kind you have been to me. That you are a credit to the company. And that I am a very loudmouthed broad who is delighted to tell all and sundry what great customer service has provided me via YOU. I look forward to visiting (and purchasing from) repeatedly in the future.
Being a gal of my word, I'm posting this consumer-company exchange. I hope keeps Cathy because she is going to be the reason I purchase wine from them in the future.

My First Hero, M. Thatcher

And this my friends is why Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher will ALWAYS be a righteous kick-ass babe in my book. ALWAYS.
