Thumbnail image for Where I Disagree with Skip, Who Was Only Slightly Disagreeing With Me

Skip remarked on my post about Jeanne Shaheen’s Senate vote to keep the gas tax money the feds scoop out of all 50 states in DC, instead of returning it back to the states where it belongs.  In those remarks he says he slightly disagrees over who is pulling whose strings…. Where I slightly disagree […]

Quick Thought – Oh Skip…What about the Bubbles?

by Steve MacDonald July 9, 2013

I think Skip misses a key element of my brilliant and breathy prose (cough-cough) when he said this…about this.
