Revisiting guns

After the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, many news organizations ran stories about assault weapons, explaining their varying definitions and presenting varying opinions about whether they should be banned again at the federal level. I’ll start out with NY SAFE Act.  The NY SAFE Act prevents criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from […]

Beyond ridiculous, bordering on insane

Remember the days when a person committed a serious crime and there were consequences? Perhaps a really naughty person who either beat their wife senseless, raped a child, or stole a great deal of merchandise, or money went to jail, pending bail. Oh, wait, the arrested person is a predicate offender and gets let out […]

Republican Congressman John Katko...Yes, or No?

Personally, I like our Congressman Republican John Katko. He has been at the house on occasions and Wife Patti has a direct line to him. John, however, has a major flaw. He is honest and that may lead to his downfall. In a press release we received last week entitled “Why I voted for the […]

News Menopause

Definition: News Menopause is the time that marks the end of your loyalty to news cycles. It occurs at any age, but now is centered on both Millennial and Baby Boomers. No, it is not necessarily a natural process, but quickened by the introduction of the Internet. Symptoms: Hot flashes of confusion and anger. It […]

Why Biden will be a one-term president

Forget the age thing, but by 2024 President Joe Biden will be 81 years-old. For quasi-thinking-forwarding Republicans, Donald Trump will be almost 80. Age shouldn’t be a major factor, but in the minds of voters, realistically, it will be, for both. Currently the economy is under major pressures, along with party morality, technical changes and […]

How low can some people go?

I really don’t adore Alec Baldwin, but there is no way anyone should be happy about the incident last week.  While on a New Mexico Western movie set, Baldwin used a “prop” gun that involved him pointing a revolver at the camera where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and film director Joel Souza were standing on the […]

Why my favorite color is gray

Look, I have to be honest. In my household we split (?) household duties. I do the vacuuming and cleaning,  most of the dishes, laundry and anything/everything that has to do with outside...gardens, dog poop, mowing, pool duties, care and cleaning the hot tub, etc. I am not saying Wife Patti does little, or nothing, […]

How Progressive Democrats want you to bank

Now hear this! How about lending the post office a helping hand by allowing them to create the Postal Banking Act. Yes, if Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders, U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), and Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) called on Congress to implement postal banking pilot programs in rural and urban communities across […]

Perhaps a bit of self promotion

Yes, I admit the front page story on solar panels is a bit of self-promotion for the paper. Yes, it is about my house. No, I did not receive any discounts promoting the selection of the installation company. Yes, I wrote the story with the intention of telling the company about it  after the story […]

Hard to believe...

Just thought I would fill you in on some absolutely bizarre, mind-blowing and amazing things happening in this world of ours. First. I got a press release from Taco Bell: “Taco Bell is launching a nationwide pilot program with TerraCycle® to divert as many used sauce packets as possible away from landfills and give them […]
