Stronger Gun Laws?

Recently a link to a website was circulated on Facebook that encouraged one to sign a pledge for stronger gun laws that would “keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and save lives”. This pledge means absolutely nothing. It has no substance and it has no purpose, other than the opportunity for the …

Apathy and Ignorance

You want to know what I think? Not that anybody cares what I think, but what I think is that one of the biggest issues we have in our great American Society is apathy. It just seems that people really don’t care about much outside their small circle of family and friends. The second biggest …

Red Thursday!

I am a traditionalist! I like tradition, whether it be a small family tradition of no consequence, or a large tradition that is practiced by an entire nation or the world, I like it. And I don’t like it when people mess with tradition. I realize that modifying a tradition is simply change. I get …

Customer Service Hell

I have previously spoken on the subject of poor customer service in another blog article regarding service at a local fast food franchise. But that was mild compared to the ongoing saga of my recent adventures with Time-Warner cable. I am here to warn you if you may be entering into the Realm of the …

Cop Bashing

Recently I have noticed a trend on social media sites such as Face Book and Twitter. This trend is disturbing and is distasteful. I am, of course, speaking of the latest fad, cop bashing. I, for one, am quite tired of it. I am tired of citizens who think they are experts on policing even …

Unclean! Unclean!

This article was originally published on January 16, 2013.  In that I am suffering a similar ailment this day, just over a year later, I wish to illustrate that thus far science and medicine have made no strides  in curing this condition. <——————————————————————-) When I woke up Thursday morning I felt like a million bucks. …

Screw The People?

I for one have had it up to here with the shenanigans going on in Washington. We are supposed to have a representative form of government. That means the people we elect are supposed to represent our interest in Washington. I do not think that is happening, do you? I think the people we elected …

Welcome to McStupids!

When I was a teen age boy after school and summer jobs were hard to come back. There was not a lot of opportunity. If one was fortunate, they might get a part-time job working at the corner “filling station” or maybe a job at the local Mom and Pop Grocery store, sweeping up and …

Facebook Is Out Of Control!

No Facebook

As I pondered on a topic for today’s blog article (I encountered a brief block) I was coming up empty-handed (or empty-headed). Usually by mid-week I have decided on a topic and have spent the rest of the week mentally reviewing what I will write about. But here I was on Saturday morning with no ideas and …

The More Things Change. . . . .

Recently my wife and I decided to watch a few episodes of an old TV series called The West Wing, via the magic of Netflix. The West Wing was originally broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1999 to May 14, 2006. The show chronicled the adventures of a Democrat president named Jeb Bartlett, and the misadventures of …
