TRUMP? What an Ass! But, right now he’s my favorite Ass!

Yeah, I watched the great CNN managed (prejudiced?) Republican debate on TV. And, honestly? I loved it.

I was just Thinking? – Where have the Verbal Combatants gone?

I know! It's a strange question, but I was just wondering. For most of my life, i could pick an argument whenever I wanted. People had opinions!

I Was Just Thinkin’- Does Our Government Spend Money just because it can?

I was Just Thinkin' Does our government have real justifications for the money they are spending, or do they just do it because the expenditures are grandiose investments in outdated and established causes that have, long ago, lost their polish and shine?

  OK, everyone, I heard Jesse Jackson this mornings news. I will not repeat his statements here, because I am adding a link to the site;FACT CHECKER.

I was Just Thinkin’ – Is it time for there to be a Third Political Party? A Seniors Party?

I was just going through some of my recent rants on Congress and the President, and how they are slowly but steadily stripping our benefits from all of us Seniors. And, from what I now see, neither political party has any idea how to handle us, the existing retirees or the Baby Boomers. The fear …

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 …
