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, …

The News Media and a Jaded America.

Here's my question. Jus How the Hell did we get to this place where we, the American Public, became so Jaded. We trust no one! NO ONE! Accept it, you're just like me, we don't believe anything that anyone says, especially the media, or as a result of the twisted news shows, even a Presidential …

Politicians should be changed like diapers – plus a joke.

Chicken Poop is still just Chicken Poop! No matter how you dress it up!

I remember, decades ago, when they carted this old guy out on national news for his unique hobby. He was obviously a simple farmer who was very uncomfortable with all of the attention he was getting. What this man had done was simple and elegant. He had a problem; He had worn his body out …

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. You might wonder why I, an avowed Independent voter my whole life, would spend several hours of his time watching such a circus. By independent, I mean, although I have voted religiously, in every election, I have never …

Presidential Candidates, How many do we need?

  OK, Before you read this any further, please accept my apology for my obvious stupidity. I mean, I must be stupid, because at this point in our nation's history (and my life) there are so many things going on in our political process that I just don't understand, I get baffled easily. So, here …

LMSA – Be PROUD and be LOUD

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! Now, for some reason our society has been turned into what was once called a collection of "milk-toasts". These days, supposed "intelligent" people avoid confrontation and dodge disagreements. …

Making excuses for the Tea Party, Trying to condone the destruction of America

Roadside Sign I was listening to the news yesterday and there was an endless line of Congressmen marching in front of the cameras.

He pushed his hat back and with silver spurs jingling he walked, slightly bow-legged into the Saloon. When he got …

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 …
