“Little Anthony Weiner,” allegedly confessed to using the ‘handle’ “Carlos Danger” while sending electronic photos of his ‘junk’ to a 26 year-old female.
Yepp, he’s the same guy who says he is a candidate to become mayor of New York City.&nb… Read full post »
One thing folks need to remember, is to give locally. One does not have to be a billionaire, millionaire, or thousandaire, to help others. Many folks who still are… Read full post »
It looks like there is a rush of disingenuous carping about Paula Deen, as companies decide to fire her, for telling the truth.
I have to question the real motives.
To all the board members and management of Walmart, Home Depot, Food Network, Smithfield Hams, Caesars Entertainmen… Read full post »
I am not part of an organized group trying to defend Paula Deen. I am an individual who happens to enjoy cooking as a hobby.
I learned to cook by watching my mother and her mother, and, by the seat of my pants when I was in the fire… Read full post »
I have been a member of The American Legion for a number of years, but not any more.
The American Legion chooses to discriminate against many veterans who have served their country honorably, but during peacetime. I believe this is unfair.
Originally, when the organization was char… Read full post »
Today, all of us should pause for a moment of silence and thanks for the almost 10,000 Allied Forces (U.S. Canada, Scotland, England and Wales), wounded or killed during the invasion at Normandy, France, June 6, 1944.
They were fighting against Hitler’s German forces that were occ… Read full post »
I must confess that there are times when I feel like I have been living in a cardboard box, with the flaps closed shut.
Last night was one of those times, when I learned about “mermaids.”
Then, today, to learn that - allegedly - the Chinese government hacked into top-se… Read full post »
When I first heard of the Highway 5 bridge collapse at the Skagit River, it was hard for me to believe that such a thing could happen.
As more details arrive, the driver of the truck that hit the bridge, might have had to take evasive action to avoid a collision… Read full post »
I was listening to President Obama speaking earlier today. He was discussing some serious issues, when someone in the crowd began interrupting him.
Other news sources indicate the disruption came from a woman, known as Medea Benjamin, who founded a group called "Code Pink."
I am left with the o… Read full post »
At my last job before I retired, I had a “Program Manager” and a “Supervisor.”
Both were incompetent; and, both had been promoted mostly as a convenience to the employer - a state agency - to avoid any type of discrimination or personnel issues. Their positio… Read full post »
As we try to settle down after the tragic events in Boston, one must ask the bomber(s), what was your point? What were you trying to say?
Did you intend to just scare people, or, did you really intend to kill an 8 year-old boy and two adults? Did you really/… Read full post »
I've read that many millionaires and billionaires, pay very little or no U.S. income taxes, because they mostly invest in tax exempt investments.
Some people have been clammoring for a flat tax...
Anyone suggesting a flat tax of 15% or 20% is crazy, or at the very least, mentally unbalanced. … Read full post »
Afghanistan’s president Karzai just slapped the U.S. in the face. We do have the ability to say "goodbye" and leave within 45 to 60 days, but that is unlikely.
As much as I dislike Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul, due to his strange ideas and his rat's nest hairdo, he… Read full post »
Most people are not aware of the unofficial pastime for many of the residents of the State of Washington. That, of course, is “mowing the lawn.” At the first sign of a warmer, clear day, one can hear the din of lawnmowers in the distance throughout the area.

Hmmm... In the past few days, there has been a lot of discussion about females serving in combat.I am reminded of years ago - the mid 1960s to mid 1980s, when it was a very “big problem” with females wanting to become firefighters. Nearly all California fire depar… Read full post »
Hmmm... The mediation failed, only because the two sides failed to mediate.
With the same goal - keeping Hostess as a viable company, there should not be any difficulty coming into an agreement acceptable to both parties.
Oh, wait a minute. Maybe the "owners" of Hostess want to "pull… Read full post »
Dear Republican Party Poobahs,
You and I have never met. I am a Christian, and I've been a moderate Republican since the first time I could vote - and that was for Barry Goldwater. I did not vote for Mr. Romney.
There are many reasons, but chief… Read full post »
Today is November 11, 2012. It was 94 years ago today, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, that “the war to end all wars” ended.
Later, this day became known as “Armistice Day.” Today, we know it as Veteran‘s/… Read full post »

“Bat Crap Crazy.” Now, there’s a term one does not see on TV news every day. A few nights ago, as I watched a news program, that was a topoic of discussion in reference to Mr. Todd “Torpedo” Akin, and his unusual views about reproduction and abortion.&nb… Read full post »
First, I must say how sorry and disappointed I am that something like this happened. My heartfelt sympathy goes to the families, friends, and colleagues of those who were killed or injured during this senseless crime.
I believe there is a bottom line to this incident, and to similar incidents t… Read full post »
The "Pee Test" email has been circulating for quite some time. It raises the serious question about why shouldn't welfare recipients be required to pass a urine test.
Here is a variation of that email:

For me, The Day The Music Died, was July 16, 1981, shortly after noon Eastern Time. That is when Harry Forster Chapin died as a result of a vehicle collision on the Long Island Expressway. Some speculate that Harry suffered a heart attack while driving, resulting in his car swerving and/… Read full post »
While I am out doing errands, sometimes I like to stop for a snack. I usually get something where there is a drive through service. Bag in hand, I drive to a shady, quiet spot, to have some fries, a cheeseburger, and a coke without ice.
Yesterday was no exception. As/… Read full post »
