Socialist dreams, or reality

Okay, don’t get your panties all in a bunch over the word ‘socialist’. It is not a new term, or one that should scare the bejesus out of you. We kind of define socialism as a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by […]

Why FOX News is Crap

Can media, any media, be completely unbiased? Once again, media is a human product, therefore imperfect, including the Times of Wayne County. Here is some more news for you. As a watcher, reader, listener,  we humans are also very imperfect, therefore biased by our very nature. Sure, we can pretend not to be biased, racist, […]

Heroes?

I am on a human quest to find and define a hero, my task taking many turns. Why are some municipalities, schools, down playing or removing names on buildings and parks, removing once-honored military monuments? Is there something afoot to denounce the once-hero status of men and women? Is deep scrutiny and second looks at […]

I am a Republican, just anti-current Republican Party

Last week as Wife Patti was preparing to mail out invitations to the Wayne County Republican ‘Chairman’s Club Dinner’, she informed me I would “not have to attend”. Wife Patti is one of the uppity-ups in the County Republican committee and  Chairperson for the Walworth Republican Committee. Gee, after many years of dragging me to […]

Braces

I was supposedly born into a middle class family in 1951, but by middle class, there had to be more of a definition. According to my second generation Eastern European mother, money was always tight. It was not uncommon to follow Ma around the shopping center that had two different grocery stores, Loblaws and Star […]

Texas Stupid

Texas, ahh, Texas...that big ole’ state with 10 gallon hats, chock full of dumb ass Republicans trying to hold onto their family jewels, while kicking anybody else in the balls. After the humiliating voter scare in the recent election, the Texas GOP and Governor are now launching an  avalanche of bills to curtail them thar […]

I was waterboarded in my own home

There I was, minding my own business. Two grandchildren, Eric and Sadie, belonging to Son Devin and Daughter-In-Law Christy, were spending a Saturday night over at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. We have a small two-bedroom dwelling, and the spare bedroom is our office. Therefore, cots have to be set up in the living-room for guest […]

The 4-Party System

Life would be so much easier if we dropped the phony two party-Republican/Democrat system in favor of the four party: ‘Far Right Republican, Normal Centralist Republican’, ‘Far Left Democrat’, ‘Centralist Democrat’  parties. That way cult Trump followers would have their short-lived voices at the polls along with the sometimes Sanders followers. The centralists on both […]

Guns, wonderful guns

Before gun peeps get into a dizzy, relax, take a breath and just read and think. Let’s start out with the premise that those wonderful founding fathers were...human and not at all perfect. Geeps, some of them actually owned slaves, thought women were subservient and had no real concept of the wild future, human socializing, […]
