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.

More likely than not, this &ldq… Read full post »

Who’s in charge at the IRS?
That is a reasonable question, and it deserves a reasonable answer.
I ask that question after looking at an email that is circulating. The email shows a newscast focusing on IRS abuse. The abuse that is happening, as I wr… Read full post »
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.

PTSD is in the news again, mentioned in an article by Marilynn Marchione of Associated Press, and printed online on MSNBC.com
For anyone who thinks veterans who have PTSD are sissies or faking it - they need to wake up and smell the coffee:
PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder), is a… Read full post »
I am writing to say "Thank You," to people I've never met. Even at great distances, and even though we might not have ever met in person, we, the people who write articles to post at Open Salon, have touched each other’s lives in many ways. Sharing experiences and knowledge doe… Read full post »

President Obama caused a news media sensation today, by stating publicly that he believes that "people should be able to marry whomever they choose." Well, at least that's my version of what he said.
Hmmm... People need to remember that all of this is about equal rights. Peopl… Read full post »
Florida is in the headlights again, for the actions taken by someone in the belief he was following the rules of "Stand Your Ground." However, we do not know that for sure.
Without going into the exact wording of the law, one must believe that "Stand Your Ground" is meant to… Read full post »
What is it with mean–spirited people? !!As soon as news sources mentioned the untimely death of American artist Thomas Kinkade, at age 54, many people started making negative comments about his work.
Mr. Kinkade was a very talented artist, and he cleverly marketed his work.… Read full post »
As I was watching TV news earlier today, there was a comment card about a poll indicating that 52% of voters do not like the Republican candidates; and, 53% of the voters favor President Obama.
That could be a very distinct and important message for the gaggle of Republican Party pr… Read full post »
Racial issues aside - there are some glaring items about this matter involving the killing of young Trayvon Martin. Mainly, that Mr. Zimmerman made some BIG mistakes, some very BAD CHOICES.
His first BAD CHOICE was to carry a weapon for his "duty" as part of neighborhood watch. … Read full post »
“Strangers in the night,” exchanging glances, wondering in the night, what were the chances, of not one, but three, nuclear explosions, at the same time, in Iran?

Fifty years ago today, two of my friends and I joined the U.S. Air Force, on the “buddy program.” It was a big, and life changing, decision for us.

For lunch today, 12/23, I decided to stop by the “Silver Trough,” the all you can eat buffet in town. There are many obese or overweight people who eat there, and more likely than not, I am one of them.

Hmmm... Starting December 1st, whenever I see a young child in the grocery store, in a cart with the mother in charge, I always ask the mother if S-A-N-T-A visits your house. If Mom says yes, I ask the young one, "Would you like to know a secret? Of course, if I tell… Read full post »
