Irresponsible musings of a self-important, self-proclaimed “intellectual”:
Not funny… even if supposedly a joke. And especially since there is spreading evidence that a violent reaction is actually being advocated.
Some not-so-subtle intimidation tactics? How about sending out some union thugs?
My choice in this election will be based on the demonstrated performance of the current […]

With the conventions of both major political parties going on, there is a lot of media coverage and talk about what government should and should not be doing for “us”. Like moths to a light, these events have attracted a wide range of groups staging protests.
One of the wonderful RIGHTS we have in the U.S. […]

Continuing the discussion of yesterday…
Just as an amalgam of metals becomes a stronger combined material than any of the individual components (which surrender some of their own unique chemical properties in the process), the collective PEOPLE of our country… the “melting pot”… is stronger by becoming “one”. It should be obvious, then, that WE cannot […]

I have suggested our country needs a special energy initiative, much like the space program, to focus on a national effort to become both more energy efficient and energy independent.

Everyone has heard stories of valiant members of our military forces who placed the best interests of their country and fellow soldiers above their own, making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duties. We should all say a prayer for these people, past and present, as well as the many more who […]

Current high gas prices reminds me of the mid-70’s and how we shot ourselves in the foot to make a bad situation even worse. It was a bad economic time compounded by foolish government reaction. Hopefully, we learn from our own history.
You would think that bad experience might have resulted in some strategic […]

Good manners dictate that acceptable public commentary be mindful of the audience, but not everyone has good manners.
Common decency says it’s better to speak good of others […]
