I Love You But I Wanted You Dead

Ariel Knights, 22-year old unwed mother of a pre-schooler, found herself pregnant again, even though she learned during her first pregnancy she had uterine didelphys.  The genetic condition results in a double uterus with individual cervices. After being told the second pregnancy could put her life at risk, she went to a clinic to have…

“Taps” or Just Tapped Out

military-cemetary-soldier-playing-taps

In a recent column by Bill McClellan in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, he suggested, as a way to cut government spending, that we eliminate military funerals for all veterans except for those who died in combat.  He states that buglers who play “Taps” make $24.50 per service and, although, not excessive, the government is just “tapped out”…

Are Our Children Actually Learning Anything in School Today?

With all the political correctness, secular progressive propaganda and outright craziness going on in schools today, I wonder if kids are actually learning anything at all.  In my world, you went to school, learned a skill (as I did in my vocational high school), and got a job.  Higher education came much later for me. …

Easter Bunnies Better Beware

A couple of years ago, a story went viral surrounding the re-naming of Easter eggs “Spring spheres.”  It has since morphed into an urban legend.  The “story” was never confirmed but said to have originated on a radio program here in Seattle when a 16-year old from a private high school purportedly called in and…

Hypocrite-in-Chief

Hypocrisy – n. The practice of professing beliefs, feelings or virtues that one does not hold or possess; insincerity. While claiming his concern for America’s children, President Obama cancels White House tours instead of cutting the countless numbers of wasteful projects, grants, and studies that fail to benefit any American life.  Hypocrisy at its finest. Sequestration was part…

Who’s the Boob?

Seth-McFarlane

I haven’t watched the Academy Awards in years and had no clue why Seth McFarlane was the host.  I don’t watch cartoons so I have no idea what “Family Guy” is all about.  That being said, the next day my news page featured several headlines about him and some stupid song he sang at the…

….If A Conservative Said That?

thought-bubble-can-you-imagine

I’m old enough to know better by now, but I’m still amazed how Democrats and liberals can get away with saying a whole lot of stuff while, if said by a Republican or conservative, they’re ignored or ridiculed by the mainstream media. One of the latest comments is from New Jersey Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez who’s now…

Just Put Some Clothes On! Problem Solved!

Kate Middleton and Prince William

I generally muse about the political, social and cultural life in America but sometimes I see or read something beyond our shores that has me shaking my head. Stories about the “Royals” are an example. First of all, let me say that I haven’t a clue why people are so fascinated with the English royal…
