Genocide...and other fun facts

DEFINITION: Genocide, the deliberate and systematic destruction of a group of people because of their ethnicity, nationality, religion, or race. Actually as soon as modern homo sapiens discovered the last conclave of Neanderthals, it has been survival of the fittest, or at least those with more and better weapons. The recent cries of the Israel-Hamas […]

How much would you spend on a pet?

The discussion came up last week. How much would you spend on a pet? Wife Patti and I concurred that maybe about $3000 would be the max, but there are so many exceptions. Over the last couple of months we have spent well over a $1000 on ‘Scout’, one of three male Cavalier King Charles […]

Now that there is war in Israel, is the Ukraine war over?

You gotta love the media. As soon as the first inkling of a major war between Israel and Hamas, the daily feeds of the war between the Ukraine and Russia all but disappeared. The only mention I’ve seen concerning the Ukrainian fight was in money tied to an entire funding package suggested by President Biden […]

What? You didn't get your paper?

 Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. If we did you would get your mailed copy of the Times on time, every week. Starting on Mondays and continuing throughout the week we receive dozens of phone calls from readers, some very irate, that their #1 source of news has not arrived. There are […]

Revenge is mine, I will repay...

 Forget about love, plain hate and all the other avenues of behavior. One the chief driving forces in the human existence is revenge. Whether to revenge a killing, theft, or perceived wrong, revenge will be mine. Actually, most of the religious books on the subject citing Romans 12:19 read-“Vengeance is Mine; I will repay, says […]

Why I chose to go semi-Green

It has to be obvious to all with any common sense that climate change is REAL. Countries with arid lands are flooding, once fertile farms are becoming dust bowls and U.S. insurance companies, once offering home owner policies, are pulling out of states hit with major forest fires and flooding storms. Summers are becoming hotter […]

If I had my druthers

Ahh, yes, if I had my druthers • I’d druther the Democrats and President Biden realize that he has outlasted his welcome. Biden turned 80 in November. If he wins the 2024 election as the Democratic candidate and serves out his entire term, he would be 86 years old at the end of his presidency […]

STRIKE!

There was a time when... No question labor unions grew out of intense capitalism created by the upper 1% who tapped into the idea of  squeezing every ounce of life out of a worker. Working seven days a week, child labor, hardly bearable wages, poor working conditions, no preparedness for life after work,  and threats […]

Before you condemn those crossers

The hairs on my neck stand up whenever somebody posts, or mentions how we should close our southern borders to "those" migrants. Before you join the chorus, how about a little history lesson. Throughout the century and before , the U.S. joined other European  countries in something called ‘colonialism’. Definition: the policy or practice of […]

Famous vs. Infamous

I will start with definitions. Famous: widely known, honored for achievement Infamous: having an extremely bad reputation: deserving of or causing an evil reputation; shamefully malign Okay, now that we  have that out of the way, let’s categorize the following. In 1938 Adolf Hitler was named the Times magazine Man of the Year. Yes, he […]
