A Passing Thing, Sad to Say!

Oh, LOOK! Over there! What  strange group of people! Look at them, such a strange and mixed bag of Humanity. They're just standing there, staring at that old memorial with the nasty soldier statue. How strange!   Oh look, they removed their hats, and placed their hands over their Hearts. And now they are repeating …

You don’t know me, I’m one of those who voted for Trump

Yeah, here I am, one of those Average Americans that came out of the woodwork to vote for Trump. (Or, was it to vote against Clinton?). Anyway, I was up late, watching this very important election and finally the results turned and started going in Trump's direction, and I must say, the consternation and shock …

News Media and the standard BS

I was just wondering. You see, today I was watching a news network on my TV, you know which one. It's the one with over 75% (which seems like 90% after all these months) of their 24-hour coverage being about the Republican candidate for president and what he slips up and said to people 10, …

Politicians should be changed like diapers – plus a joke.

Our politicians today are a privileged group of self-serving individuals that would not hesitate to sell anyone down the river to get what they want. One of the problems we have today is the fact that the two political parties have polarized themselves so far to the two extremes of ideology (liberal and conservative) that …

Just Say Whoops, or Oh, I’m Sorry! But don’t act proud when caught lying.

That's one of my big problems with Mr. Cruz, in these ongoing state political primaries. His arrogant disregard for the truth is outrageous. OK, stop right there, I know ..... All politician tell lies. In fact they are politicians because they have this skill of using a ten-cent fact and blowing it up into a …

How scared should I BE? The Politicians are quiet!

I was Just Thinkin' Sitting over my morning Coffee and Worried. The news really has nothing of any national import to talk about other than beating on the weather and older stories. The weather isn't that shocking, and the older stories are just being stirred around, kind of like a kid would poke a stick …

I was Just Thinkin’ – PORK BARREL Issues

This little article includes my rant about the stupidity of Congress and their continuing inability ro agree to resolve issues. It is my opinion, mine only, and I do this, for no other reason than to lower my blood pressure. This is not an effort to change the minds (really?) of those that we have …

Politicians are polishing their Rocks

Hail to the Thief Yep! It's relatively quiet on the "Who is blaming Who" front at the moment. We are finally down to one Democrat candidate and one Republican candidate. So, it no longer matters if we like the choices or not, they are who they are. And, both of them, are sitting back and …

Congressional ZOMBIES

Finally, A new name for Congress that fits! Congressional ZOMBIES, the Walking DEAD in DC! Oh My! Yes, that's right, the title fits them perfectly. They may as well be labeled as some version of the popular movie genre. They stumble randomly around Washington. They make stupid and unintelligible sounds. They cannot really communicate with …

Viet Nam! – I Served! and I Remember!

  Flashback I'm just sitting here, sipping on some water and watching it rain outside. For entertainment, I turned on the news and flipped it up to the CNN channel. I keep them turned on a lot, mostly because they are more middle-of-the-road than the other news channels. Anyway, I had fired up my PC …
