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 […]

A Journalist? Me?

I don’t know why, but I always wanted to be a journalist. Oh, sure, there were scores of jobs with less pressure, more money and fewer chances of alienating people, but I guess it was just a calling. Newspaper was always the biggest draw for me, but for a short time I was swayed by […]

The Lost Keys + My Favorite Son (for the day)

The lost keys For three excruciating days, Wife Patti was bemoaning the loss of her keys. “I have searched the whole house. They are nowhere to be found. I am going to order a new set and get another key from the post office for our mail box,” she went on and on. To make […]

We have a tendency to overreact

• Last week a Sodus man was shot and killed by State Police after lowering a shotgun and firing at the responding police. Unfortunately and very truthful, the concern over many in the police world was that they were grateful the man was NOT Black! No doubt immediate questions would have popped up on the […]

Column: Fathers Day Thanks

Dear Dad, Every year it seems I write about you in some form at this time. On the 25th, you will have been gone for 13 years. And I miss ya. But this past week, there is one thing I realized that I never thanked you for, for which I could never thank you enough: […]

I should have called police

It was a bit amateurish at best, but considering the COVID19 thing and unable to get a haircut, I decided to let Wife Patti cut my golden locks. How difficult can it be to trim your beloved’s hair? Besides, I could save $20 bucks and a trip to the hair stylist, even after the reopening […]

Haste means waste, and a whole lot of stupidity

Here we go again. Yes, the demonstrations following the death of George Floyd, showed millions of people hitting the streets around the world. Unfortunately, it only takes a few elements of a peaceful walk, engaging in violence, to turn a demonstration into a riot. Looting, burning neighborhoods, overturning police vehicles in their paths, then leads […]

Turmoil

Yes, it was a week of turmoil and troubles for America and no amount of denial will prevail. We are a racist society. There are those who deny any form of personal racism, but one must really dig deep for the truth. We transcend bigotry by substituting the word ‘nigger’ with “N-word”  and suddenly feel […]
