All Lives Matter

June 16, 2020

I am sure that many people have been watching the news lately and that one of the highest impact topics has been about our, the United States’, history of racial practices (that’s such an insufficient word: practices). For many of my years, I have been aware of how non-white people have been poorly treated in […]

The Corvette

February 26, 2020

The Corvette. A man named Tom Nicholson posted on his Facebook account the sports car that he had just bought and how a man approached and told him that the money used to buy this car could’ve fed thousands of less fortunate people. His response to this man made him famous on the internet. READ […]

A Parking Ticket

February 26, 2020

My wife and I went into town and visited a shop.  When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.  We went up to him and I said, “Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”  He just ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him […]

They Worked 111 days of the last 365

September 28, 2019

Found in eMail: So many members of Congress are retiring in hopes of “locking-in” their future retirement payments. Currently, their monthly retirement checks are equal to their monthly salaries. They hope to freeze their retirement as it stands. I’m with Trump on this one. Trump is asking everyone to forward this Email to a minimum […]

Drafting Guys Over 60

June 7, 2019

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists.  You can’t be older than 42 to join the military.  They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year old’s off to fight, they ought to take us old guys.  You shouldn’t be able to join a military […]

Are we still Free?

April 25, 2019

Have we become TOO Politically Correct or TOO Corrected Politically? Do the citizens of the United States have the right to choose their own destiny OR have we become Victims of our fear of confrontation? I remember a time when the United States was a proud nation with family origins from almost everywhere in the […]

I believe Marriage is…

April 16, 2019

“I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman,” Mitt Romney said. I believe marriage (this is ME now) is a relationship of willing adults who accept their responsibilities as a family to pay taxes and, when able, raise children. The ‘when able’ phrase can include Adoption, Foster Parenting, Surrogate Parenting and […]

Now Is Forever

March 23, 2018

Every second of our lives is a moment in “The Now”. How can it be otherwise? What is past is passed and we can only remember and HOPE that we Learn from our past. What is Yet To Come holds promise and, perhaps, fear but we spend each Now preparing for what is Yet To […]

Don’t Impeach

January 22, 2018

Don’t Impeach Donald Trump. Don’t Retweet his Tweets; Don’t bother Reading his Tweets. Don’t debate the accuracy of his latest Blurtings. Don’t give him ANY Press Coverage. If we ignore him, maybe he will just Go Away!
