You can't have it both ways

I absolutely love the dynamics of people’s thought process in determining statements, ‘facts’, political leanings and social media posts. For example, states determined to overturn the Supreme Court decision  of Roe vs. Wade (the abortion issue), believe in the sanctity of life, yet are the states at the forefront of capital punishment. (???) Anti-maskers and […]

Biden's biggest boo-boos and blunders

Okay, so President Biden won the 2020 election, probably because so many real Americans hated the Trumpster, not because they thought Biden was a great asset, just better than the alternative. With high hopes, the ‘Build  Back Better” theme was off to a promising future. But, from the very beginning, Biden fell into numerous political […]

Want to be in a Cult?

In modern English, a cult is a social group that is defined by its unusual religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs, or its common interest in a particular personality, object, or goal. Probably the most notable ‘cult’ was the tragic Peoples Temple, founded by Jim Jones. According to a paper by the Department for the Study […]

2024...as I see it

As I see, it as the 2024 Presidential Election approaches (?)...  Democrats have abandoned the Biden/Harris team for obvious reasons. Biden failed to show up at the convention, and although Harris vigorously objected, she was immediately silenced and the “Ice Queen” was promised an ambassadorship to Iceland. The ‘New Democratic team’ will consist of Pete […]

Changes for 2022

There is a reason we recently started a new page entitled Our Planet, see page A8. We all have to take this climate change to heart. There is no more denying it is happening. Only a basic idiot fails to see the massive changes in storms, weather patterns and even local effects occurring in  our […]

And that is how it happened

Wife Patti drove me to get a haircut on Sunday morning. (No, I cannot yet drive due to the health thing.) I was immediately greeted and sat in the chair to get my once golden locks clipped. Having gone through a horrendous week in New York City and at the hospital at Rochester General (see […]

What I have in common with Jimmy Stewart

We made our annual trip to New York City for Broadway plays. This time, under very strict COVID protocols. We saw three musicals, and on Sunday night, went to see the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music hall. First, I was surprised that every hotel, restaurant and play checked everybody’s COVID card and ID. […]

Revisiting guns

After the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, many news organizations ran stories about assault weapons, explaining their varying definitions and presenting varying opinions about whether they should be banned again at the federal level. I’ll start out with NY SAFE Act.  The NY SAFE Act prevents criminals and the dangerously mentally ill from […]

Beyond ridiculous, bordering on insane

Remember the days when a person committed a serious crime and there were consequences? Perhaps a really naughty person who either beat their wife senseless, raped a child, or stole a great deal of merchandise, or money went to jail, pending bail. Oh, wait, the arrested person is a predicate offender and gets let out […]

Republican Congressman John Katko...Yes, or No?

Personally, I like our Congressman Republican John Katko. He has been at the house on occasions and Wife Patti has a direct line to him. John, however, has a major flaw. He is honest and that may lead to his downfall. In a press release we received last week entitled “Why I voted for the […]
