Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy

Back to controversy Going way overboard is Republican Senate candidate Eric Greitens’s campaign video urging voters to go “hunting” for members of his own party,  while brandishing a gun, violated their rules against incitement and hateful conduct. The ad shows the former Missouri governor standing outside a home while holding a shotgun and surrounded by […]

When much is too much

How much money do you need? If you were a multi-millionaire, would you be satisfied? If you had more money than you could spend in a lifetime, would you keep seeking more? If you won the big lottery, would you be eternally happy? At what point would you sacrifice your morals for more cash? Ahh, […]

So, following the Jan. 6th committee stuff, any mind changes?

So, who really watched the first installment of the Jan. 6th committee prime-time hearing on Thursday? I’ll give you a hint, probably not the people who should have, the people who undeniably believed the ‘Big Lie” without question, handed down by their god Trump? Even before the November 2020 election, Republican pollsters knew the outcome, […]

The Garage

We have been living in this house going on eleven years. We have spent big bucks remodeling, improving and making the home and property the perfect setting for this elderly couple. One big task lay ahead. The two car garage needed everything over the years. We had it dry walled, new garage doors installed, updated […]

I will no longer be a Republican

I’ve had it. As a true Republican I believed in  frugal spending and less intrusion into people’s lives. None of that describes the current Republican Party. I thought fighting from within, the Party was the way to go, and perhaps things would change. I have heard from some ‘quasi-friends’ that my positions make me more […]

Confused

Yes, it was an opportune time for the leak - a leaked copy of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs Vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which the Supreme Court is expected to rule on by early July. While upholding Mississippi’s ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, the draft opinion calls […]

It is simply amazing.

Ahh politics! Yes, we are going through a period of inflation, prices rising faster than wages, but there is a “but”! President Biden said inflation is his ”top domestic priority” as midterm elections loom. That is a “duh” statement in anybody’s book. Meanwhile. Republicans are foaming at the mouth, blaming current policies for the economic […]

Fossil fuel economics 101

You have to love posts on social media, such as President Biden is responsible for the high prices at the pump! Now, that you all have either heard, or believe the gas gags, we will review some actual high gas prices/gas facts. First, I do not like many Biden policies, but am tired of Republican […]

Time for a vacuum cleaner update

Longtime readers of this column know I am a vacuum cleaner  lover and self-proclaimed expert. If it’s new, better and the latest, I am there. I admit I have no fewer that three (or more) vacuums, and keep one in every room, including large uprights, cordless and hand-held versions. I have now three longer hair […]

Friendship stops at the dollar

No one, except a bunch of stupid Russians think what is happening in Ukraine is humane, or justified and nothing short of war crimes. On Thursday (4/7) the United Nations voted to suspend Russia from the UN Human Rights Council - shows just where the buck stops. The vote to oust Russia from the council […]
