Free Bourbon

Cold Fusion’s purpose, from its conception, was to provide readers with thought provoking views and/or ideas to advance the cause of human freedom and liberty. Unable to keep up with the times, I must submit to the reality that I was playing the wrong game. I assumed that the everyone had a mutual goal that […]

Dude? Was That You?

On a crowded elevator turn to the friend next to you and say “Dude! Really? On an elevator? Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to apologize for my friend. I want to assure you that I will be having a man to man conversation about his behavior. Oh man, this is just awful! It’s not […]

So the big debtbacle is finally over. You wish. This is just the start. This is the new normal. Everything from here on out will be negotiated until the final hours. That is until we set the debt and fiscal trajectory on a better path and for a period of time up to the final […]

March Madness

March Madness is in full swing and I am blessedly out of Thin Mints. No, I didn’t give them up for Lent. I gave up trying to figure out the Obama Administration’s energy, domestic and foreign policies for Lent. Frankly, it has been a liberating experience.

Don’t Think Obama Can Win Re-Election?

Still don’t think Obama can win re-election? Consider these facts – his numbers are up – mid 50s in polls that sample everyone and upper 40s with LIKELY VOTERS. His negative numbers are less intense that just four months ago. That and the GOP needs to win ALL of the following states to get to […]
