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 »

“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 »

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.

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.

In case you missed it, the Supreme Court Of The United States, (SCOTUS), let loose with a very disappointing decision last week – amid all the hoopla about health care.

Who’s in charge at the IRS?
That is a reasonable question, and it deserves a reasonable answer.

The bully in my life was my father. Sure, there were kids around my own age who tried to make life hell for others, and me, but I could deal with them. My father was a different challenge. He was much bigger and stronger than I was.
