If you have yet to experience Herman Cain's odd new political advertisement, the time has come. [If you DID experience the ad, you've already had your "what the HELL?! moment; feel free to proceed to the commentary.] Herman Cain aptly demonstrates his lack of ability and judge… Read full post »
America. Synonymous with freedom to the people of oppressive nations all over the globe--or was, once. These days, we’re seeing examples of the erosion of Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and freedoms with frightening regularity, and citizens of those oppressive nations are… Read full post »
As the Occupy movement eases past the two-month mark, everyone seems to be discussing the future of the Occupation. Individual trends and motivations are apparent for each of the major groups involved in the conversation, but a common theme has also emerged. Setting aside the obvious pos… Read full post »
Since the Occupy Wall Street movement began--and since the mainstream media [MSM] actually began to cover it--one thing that really stands out to me is the effect mainstream media labels have on the perspective of the population. Labels are words that, when used, evoke some type of… Read full post »
One of the most effective tactics on the part of the anti-#OccupyWallStreet and #wearethe99% movements is attempting to shame participants into silence. Got laid off? Your own fault, and go take a shower, you filthy hippie. And get a haircut and a job, while you’re at it. Lost your home?… Read full post »
In the wake of the We Are the 99 -- #wearethe99%--the internet is bristling with pics from the opposition movements that have stolen its creative format: details of the effect Wall Street’s actions have had on people’s personal stories, recorded on signs that usually hide a p… Read full post »
It's incredibly unlikely that you are actually one of the 1%, but an awful lot of "regular" people seem to think they qualify. These 1% wannabes have taken it upon themselves to vehemently oppose the actions by the #OccupyWallStreet and #wearethe99% movements, and in… Read full post »
President Obama recently released his plan to create jobs. Basically, he’s playing politics by giving Congress a bad bill and urging them to pass it quickly. As usual, he left it up to Congress to work out the details and to figure out how to pay for it. Or, more… Read full post »
America is in the crapper. Our freedoms have been eroded, our Constitution violated, unemployment is high, underemployment is higher, our economy seems to be circling the drain, our right to privacy is a thing of the past, and the only action of which our POTUS appears to be capable is r… Read full post »

Social Security has been a hot topic lately, and, as is usual for controversial issues, the discussion includes a LOT of misinformation. It's argued that Social Security is “broke”, that it is a “pyramid/Ponzi scheme”, that it’s “doomed… Read full post »
I had an interesting discussion today regarding what the Bible has to say regarding profanity, and which words God considers profane. I was left with questions, and decided to do a little research. Google wasn't terribly helpful, but the lack of information helped me determine my own po… Read full post »
Current President Barack Obama successfully campaigned on healthcare, though his plan wasn't much good then, and has since evolved into a giant, gift-wrapped, insuance company stimulus package. His political stock in freefall, Obama tossed the hot potato … Read full post »
Since the news of the Haiti disaster first reached us, we have been innundated with calls for donations to help the people of Haiti. While donations are wonderful, it seems to me that the greatest need in Haiti at the moment is people with the ability to cut through red… Read full post »
My cat drools on my keyboard
As I sit and read OS
Were it just a tad, I shan't complain,
But he does it to excess.
He lies in wait for me to find
A post I get involved in;
Then leaps upon me, open-mouthed
Saliva dangling from within.… Read full post »

He drowns, as I watch.
I endeavor to extricate, to deliver, to rescue, to save .
But I fail. I disappoint.
