That Electoral College thing

A bit of history, mixed with a bit of reality. Let us return to unsanitary conditions, no air conditioning and thorny questions debated to and fro at the 1787 Constitutional Convention. Toilet paper was nonexistent and to make things worse the Founding Fathers (FF) had been debating for months. Some wanted the position of the […]

The Cat's out of the bag, the horse is out of the barn

The old cliché mill will really be activated for this column. In addition, this column will be longer than most, but for a reason. Please read... and think for a moment. I have a BS (Bachelor of Science, not Bull Shit) from Syracuse University. My minor was in history, including everything from Russian, American and […]

Fossil

Unless you claim genetics from another planet (and there are some in the current administration I believe are from Mars), climate change is...real. Floods, increased severe hurricanes/tornadoes, fires from droughts and crop destruction is a worldwide reality. This, in turn, creates problems in migration, economics and political upheaval. Over the past decade or more, large […]

Brutally attacked handicapped elderly man

I was recovering from my fourth right foot reconstruction operation. A little over a month after the procedure, I was still wearing the customary surgical recovery boot and hobbling through life. Wife Patti is many things. She is, however, not an outdoors person. This means my gardens were weed laden and somewhat out of control. […]

Column: The 2020 Vision

If there is one thing western and perhaps central New Yorkers can be most hopeful about in this unprecedented year, it may be the Buffalo Bills. Is that, oddly enough, good for the team’s luck? Head coach, Sean McDermott, has put his team into the playoffs twice in three years with both a quarterback who […]

Governor Cuomo is a jerk...most of the time

New York State, under the venerable (?) Governor Andrew Cuomo, has determined people have the right to know...about just about any police reports and backgrounds on a police officer, including their photos. You know, it’s the old..”Your Right To Know” thing. Luckily, a federal judge has halted the public release of police officer disciplinary records […]

Hey have you heard about this coronavirus thing?

Gee, I had no idea that this coronavirus thing would be such a big deal. Come to find out it has really thrown a wrench into...just about everything. I have to admit, before the rise of the “virus”, I lead a pretty stoic life style. Due to a series of medical set-backs, along with the […]

American Gullibility Factor

It becomes frustrating and a bit disgusting watching internet social sites and some of the re-posts and thoughts appearing just about every second. We blame Trump for anything, we blame Obama for everything, we blame the Democrats, the Republicans, Blacks, Whites, Police, Protesters, Rioters, Media for the current conditions. The truth is we are all […]

The stock market is good, therefore the economy is good, right?

The very simple answer is NO! Have you ever noticed how, when a news story breaks, the stock market will quiver? A president, politician, federal employer makes a statement, an oil ship is commandeered, or a skirmish breaks out around the world, all have a say on the floor of the stockexchange. Employment numbers are […]

The Truth about Social Security

After an exchange on social media concerning Social Security, I thought it was time to break some long misconceptions on the federal program.  The first “rumor” is that the government has taken funds out of the program to bolster spending and that is the reason there is talk about it going bust. NOT TRUE The […]
