Good News & Bad

There are times, I’m sure we’d all agree, when it seems that good news is a thing of the past. But if you look hard enough, sometimes you’ll spot a nugget. For instance, I recently learned that in Russia, 25% of the men die before the age of 55. That’s because, on average, their consumption…

Grist for My Mill

On occasion, I have wondered what motivates liberals to say and do all those nutty things we have come to expect of them. At times, I find myself wondering if it’s to keep me supplied with material. If that’s actually the case, and that’s certainly a more reasonable conclusion than that they really mean all…

Fools, Nitwits & Dumb Bunnies

The title refers to those politicians in our nation’s capital who make our laws, oversee our wars and conduct our foreign policy. If you regard Congress as a family, this one has far more than its share of black sheep. If you regard Congress as a village, this one has far more than its share…

Out here, I think we get to vote sometime in July or August. But since we west coast Republicans comprise such a small band of rebels, it probably doesn’t…

Let’s Ban Another “N” Word

the-n-word

I’d like to think that, for the most part, the “N” word has been abolished in our civilized society.  With the exception of it being bandied about amongst young Blacks, something which I will go to my grave not understanding, the word has been pretty much eliminated from everyone else’s speech.  Almost.

If you’re like me, I love election season.  I’m not a sports fan, so I don’t ever cheer for a home team.  Election time is the only time I get to root for my guy or gal.  I’m sure many have had enough of the political ads including the parents of my 3-year old grand…
