Basic Life Questions

I don’t know, maybe it’s because I have an inquisitive mind, but these questions seem to be whirling around my noggin. • How come British people talk with heavy, weird English accents, but when they sing, they sing in American, understandable lyrics? • Did cavemen ever suffer from hemorrhoids? If so, did they try to  […]

Do you believe those stupid Russians falling for all that fake news?

Imagine the millions of Russian people believing Putin’s propaganda rhetoric about the invasion/war against the Ukrainian people. Thousands of men, women and children have been killed in obvious unconstrained bombing, wiping almost entire Ukrainian cities off the face of the earth. If and when the war comes to an end, millions of Ukrainians will return […]

Trump's love of Putin now a curse?

Oh, no, Trump is dying on the vine. Seems the Republican Party is finding it less appealing to follow ex-president Trump and his wild world of politics. Seems his adoration and love of Russian President Putin is catching up with reality, as pictures of Ukrainian mass murder is exposed. Trump, for his part, thought Putin’s […]

Are you racist?

Of course you are not! But wait, there are signs that perhaps, overall, we Americans are just a bit racist. When the Ukrainian conflict began, we did our utmost to support the conflict. Numerous posts, governmental and private agencies, people, churches and civic groups jumped on the bandwagon. Several million Ukraine refugees fled to nearby […]

The state of the newspaper industry

Beginning this week, the Walmart stores will no longer carry ANY newspapers. We were abruptly told newspapers no longer fit the floor plans for Walmart. That cut our newspaper sales by over 200 papers per week. The Breen’s grocery store in Palmyra closed, cutting shoppers out of 300 Times sales per week. Nearby newsstands will […]

Things to note:

Is Vladimir Putin, the Russian President and dictator, losing it? Yup, pictures of him social distancing from everybody by at least 20 feet, along with gruff statements and threats to world peace suggest that perhaps, his noodle is coming loose. Not only has he single handily destroyed the Russian economy, but his generals are enforcing […]

Let's keep those quasi-slaves in place

Imagine no steady job. Your social class is relegated to moving season to season, state to state, following the growing seasons. Fruits and vegetables in Florida, moving to Georgia for the peach season, Pennsylvania for corn, before heading to New York for apples and assorted vegetables. After that heading west to Michigan and numerous other […]

Why we should be concerned about our country

We assume all is well in the world, but more specifically, the United States of America. After all we are the beacon of democracy and everybody wants to come to America. Screech!...Go the brakes on that thought. This country is on the precipice of disaster and is more divided than even during the Civil War. […]

Kittens become Cats

Column readers know I have three Cavalier King Charles dogs, ages 7-11 years old. The dogs shed fur year round and I keep vacuum cleaners in all rooms. They are basically overweight lap dogs that instinctively know time like a clock. Four to four-thirty a.m. wake up, let out and feed. The time is actually […]

Stupid Quotes, some Stupid People

I just thought I would have fun this week posting really stupid quotes from politicians from both sides of the aisle. • Barack Obama on Visiting 57 States: “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.’’ • Joe Biden on Barack Obama: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American […]
