The blessed return of sunshine means that – in the formerly frigid climes – we may now seek transport in vehicles that don’t heat us while they mobilize us. This means that many of you are mounting up on your bikes and traversing the roadways & byways.
Brink Brickly being an avid bicyclist himself (though it’s a complex relationship as you’ll soon discover), we discuss the various life scenarios which have led us to the bicycle – which for Brink is a tale that involves large piles of dirt, Texas, and wanting to be like his brothers.

Perhaps the buzz has reached your ears. The mammoth creature Godzilla is back in theaters once again. Only this time… with a twist worthy of M Night Shyamalan.
I have taken my fowl self to the cineplex & viewed this film for you, and offer my humble takeaways from Godzilla in an effort to guide your movie selections toward a more perfect union of Entertainment, Information & General Sense of Well Being. Continue reading Goose & Godzilla→
The electoral landscape continues to shape up beautifully for the GOP in advance of the mid-term elections. Brink Brickly and myself speak to the persistent displeasure ObamaCare inflicts on the Democrat party far and wide. Yet in the midst of the positivity, there continue to exist fissures on the right between ‘the establishment’ and ‘the grassroots’. Continue reading Musing on Mitch & Raging Against the Machine→
You’ve beheld the hubbub! You’ve seen the arguments on FB & Twitter! Now, join us for some Entertainment, Information & a General Sense of Well Being as we give the GooseRadio Podcast treatment to Paramount’s ‘Noah’.
Extreme temperatures are to be expected when you dwell in the northern regions of these United States, yet this was different. This winter – from which we are seeing the blessed first signs of retreat in the Upper Midwest – has been so relentless in its bleak severity that it marked us.
What is the supreme potentate of Russia thinking? Why are there Russian goons all over Crimea (and now it appears moving further into The Ukraine)? And what went down in Kiev to get this whole kerfuffle moving?
We bring our best thinking caps to bear on the madness in Eastern Europe as Brink Brickly details the history of the crisis. Where has the West been while all of this has accelerated? Could we have done anything? Continue reading It’s a Vlad, Vlad World→
President Obama has often been described as the smartest President that has ever drawn breath. Yet in a White House bash last week he was unable to correctly spell the word ‘respect’. This remarkable moment gives us pause to analyze the disparate treatment that conservatives & liberals receive in regards to their intellectual prowess.
We hearken back Vice President Quayles’ infamous spelling bee incident with the word ‘potato’. It’s tough to miss the double standard at work, especially when you take into account previous Presidential factual misadventures such as the declaration that our nation contains 57 states.
We discuss these issues in a mirthful fashion on the latest GooseRadio podcast…
CPAC closed up shop this weekend with a flurry of speeches that saw all the big stars on the right strutting their rhetorical stuff.
Old Brink Brickly & myself take a look at the performances of Governor Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie & the gang.
The Brink-ster things that Huck really helped himself in the youthful presidential sweepstakes with his appeal to social conservatives. We chat about Christie’s surprisingly warm sendoff after his remarks & one of us has a cow over his line regarding winning elections and principles.
Then it’s on to Ted Cruz. We note a recent epiphany regarding his wacky biographical similarity to someone who may surprise you. Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul & more make appearances… as well as – less understandably – old Scottish ballads and Russel Crowe films.
It’s CPAC with an unmitigated General Sense of Well Being…
