Blah, Blah, Blah

Those silly Republicans are at it again. On the national level the House passed a measure to censure California Democrat House of Representative’s Adam B. Schiff for pressing allegations that Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russia, a week after a first attempt to censure Schiff was blocked. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) presided […]

You bet on it

You have to understand, the government and resulting politicians are totally against all forms of vice...unless they can use it. Decades ago gambling was illegal, just about everywhere except in Nevada. Of course, there was the hidden,  back room bookies satisfying the public’s urge to bet on everything from horses, sport games, you name it, […]

Why I strongly dislike Saudi Arabia

 Strongly dislike is just short of hate. Saudi Arabian prince Mohammed bin Salman is slimy, sketchy and if nothing else, crafty. He knows he is in the driver’s seat when it comes to American politics, finances and partial survival. Now remember, it was Saudi-backed terrorists involved in the take down of the twin towers (9/11). […]

She likes my butt...but

 I am way too old to be doing this stuff, but when a plan enters my head there is no stopping me. I decided I hated the back yard. Sketchy, uneven grass, stupid plants and shrubbery that came with the place 12 years ago and a row of unsightly, tall bushes that really provided no […]

Heroes

I have mentioned this before, but with the recent celebrations around Wayne County’s 200 Year celebration I thought a bit of reflection was necessary. Wayne County is named after General ‘Mad Anthony" Wayne, a somewhat famous Revolutionary War hero. In doing my research of the General, I discovered major flaws in his character that would […]

The RACE Debacle

 Okay, you’re not a racist and neither am I. Now, tell me how you feel about the following questions. • Should a White student be denied entrance into the college of his choice in favor of a perhaps, less qualified  Black student? • Are there already too many very eligible Oriental students at Ivy League […]

There I was, just working in the gardens

Last Saturday I could finally get out side and really try to catch up in the gardens. This year I decided to replant the entire back lawn, due to its uneven nature and occasional puddling. Scores of poured concrete edging had to be broken up and moved. Yes, it was heavy work, but I was […]

Guns, guns, guns, guns, guns, guns!

ek’s topic will be? It is not unlikely that almost all the editorial cartoonists this week had various inputs on  the recent gun violence across the Country. It is not my fault that on A4, the STATE, NATION, WORLD NEWS NOTES page has an enormous number of shootings and fatality stories. By the way, those […]

Bottom Line: Did he do it?

I love all the rhetoric and back-seat driving by pundits stating the New York State case against former President Donald Trump is either complete hooey, or a really weak case. After all, The Trumpster has more serious charges in both the January 6th insurrection and Georgia election tampering cases. The New York case involves the […]

Why foreign aid is critical

Nothing irks me more that social media nuts who post "The government should take care of veterans and the poor of America, before giving millions to foreign countries". (Actually there are a lot of things that probably irk me more). Let me try to explain why the U.S. is in the business of foreign aid, […]
