Do you know what an Inside Joke is? It’s a joke that only works inside my head!  That’s an Inside Joke. And by the way, that, in itself, is an Inside Joke!   However, since you are here, why don’t you check out some of my other blogs: IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering: https://softwareengineeringhandbook.wordpress.com/ […]

Presidential History

April 28, 2017

From a Friend on Facebook (I hope he doesn’t mind…) The first president I remember led the allied forces in Europe to victory in WWII. He cautioned us against the military industrial complex. He built the American highway system to enable American to defend itself. The second gave his life for America. He read seven […]

Replacement Theory

April 16, 2017

There are some people who are fundamentally habitual in their nature.  These folks tend to repeat, focus on, become addicted to a behavior of one kind or another and they, then, tend not to let go. There are other folks who are much less habitual but I am not talking about them now. Habit driven […]

Common Sense Bill of Rights (from eMail)

April 14, 2017

This is probably the best e-mail I’ve seen in a long, long time. The following has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer programmer. He didn’t expect his essay — a tart 10-point list of “rights” Americans don’t have — to become an Internet legend. ——————————————————————————————– NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION We the […]

Dear Mr. Trump

February 17, 2017

I am not a pundit.  I am not a “politico”.  I am a US Citizen who voted in our recent (2016) Presidential Election. Mr. Trump (I refuse to call you President):  You are NOT a politician and many of us thought that could be a good thing but it turns out that you are an […]

And for my next trick…

November 9, 2016

The American People elected a new President on November 8th 2016.  The rumors and speculations about WHY they chose this one instead of the other candidate have only just begun. Some may say that is because the Silent Majority decided that they finally had a non-political choice and have been waiting for the chance to […]

All of a sudden – from eMail

October 31, 2016

Think about all of this in less than 8 years – just think about it!!! Before Obama, there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America. All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the Bible are banned in schools. All of a sudden, we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and […]

Take down the Statue of Liberty – Rosemary LaBonte

October 5, 2016

This was written by Rosemary LaBonte to the editors of a California newspaper in response to an article written by Ernie Lujan who suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the immigrants of today are not being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry. […]

History was NEVER my favorite subject, but…

October 3, 2016

Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during his Presidential campaign, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952“? I did not know of this Act, but it has been a law for almost 65 years. Here are the […]
