The GOP has a ways to go on labor issues, environment, civil rights and fiscal responsibility before it's ready for someone of Lieberman's caliber. Joe was the wrong guy this year, but he's not wrong about everything.


Rob, I don’t know much about what you mean by “labor issues” – like what, exactly? The minimum wage? I had a post on that a few days ago.
On the environment, if you take away the junk science, then the Republicans are right on target.
On civil rights, it’s time to go color blind and for Lady Justice to put her blindfold back on. Enough is enough.
Fiscal responsibility, don’t know exactly what JL has proposed or what kind of budgets he’d turn out. Here, I think a divided government is best, but not when the national security stakes are so high – another 9-11 would cost us more than any conceivable deficit.
Thanks for your comments and welcome. Tell Rayne I’m not such a bad guy once you get to know me, and there’s no need to threaten me.

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
