New Jersey needs a governor....

It's not an uncommon event to see New Jerseys governor, Chris Christie, somewhere other than New Jersey. Whether it's a football game, or baseball game in some other state, or New Hampshire to push his presidential hopes, or some republican friendly...

Sex...

  Gender identification has become the bane of our twenty-first century existence. Bruce Jenner is only the famous tip of the iceburg, as there are many out there labeling themselves transgender. I’m not against it, hell, you are who you are. If...

This crown....

  This crown of thorns upon my head   Draws blood of crimson red   The pain in my heart and in my mind   It’s all there for you to find   An allegory of quixotic chases   A mind and heart in chaotic paces   ...

A land of lawlessness and abuse of the law....

  A land of lawlessness and the abuse of the law, and those in between. That’s what we have. Over the recent week, some things have come to pass, and none of it fair, equal, or up to the laws standards. The first issue….if we are to follow the law,...

The Republicans need Carly Fiorina....

  The republicans need Carly Fiorina. They need Nikki Haley. Yes, I said it, the republicans need these women. Now before you start screaming sexist, let me explain. Carly led an international group with great success. Nikki Haley is the first...

Proactive or reactive?

  How would you approach your job if every day you went in you ran the risk of being charged with a crime or sued for a mistake? Would you give your all to the job, or just do the minimal, react to what you were told to do or take the incentive and...

Randomness....

  Oh Walmart, how your genius is underrated. What does an internationally despised corporation do to give itself a little polish? You raise your minimum employee wage in advance of what appears to be a national trend, and then you publicize the...

Yesterday....

  Yesterday, clothing company PacSun displayed a t-shirt. It was an inopportune time for the shirt….an upside down flag on a t-shirt is NOT ideal on Memorial Day. Now, all kinds of people have become irate about the companies display and sale of...

Memorial day, 2015

The stones in perfect order Standing in a line They're white emblazoned memories Of people who died for me People who fought and died for a cause The cause of Liberty And even though they may be gone They leave a legacy A red,...

The pyramid puzzle....

  Here’s a fun diversion from all that political stuff. I was watching a show on the History channel about the pyramids that are found around the world and their connection, and I came away with an interesting thought. Note that I do not believe...

The new rate...

  So a bunch of burger flippers and fry cooks want $15 an hour. For what? I’ve done that job…a long time ago. It’s an entry level job, not worthy of the $15 an hour. They passed the $15 an hour minimum wage in Seattle, and guess what? It’s a...

Urban repression....

  President Obama today made a commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy that hinted at a possible direction a government of his ideology might follow. The president linked terrorism in Syria and North Africa (Boko Haram) to global warming. He...

President Obama....

  President Obama, Are you ready to move yet? Are you ready to face the fact that your policies in Iraq, Syria, and Iran have failed? Can you finally admit that ISIS is kicking your ass? Ramadi, a city that cost us so much blood, so many lives has...

Just one more time let me hear your call....

  Since I last saw you ages have passed   Time a flying since your spell was cast   I still feel the beat of your heart   I have loved you right from the start   Where upon my heart you left the stain   It does not...

Don't tread on me...

  Few things in this life bring about an emotion equal to that of a symbol of your life or dreams. The cross, a sunset, a mountain…whatever it may be. It defines what brought you to where you are. For American patriots, nothing is so sacred as the...

A self-driving car? Not for me.

  Why are we embracing cars that drive themselves? Okay, the woman who is always running late and needs to apply makeup in the mirror..she may need it, or that guy that wants to read the paper or use his electric shaver as he heads to work…he may...

Just another saturday morning....

  I awoke this morning to the sunshine in the window and the birds singing. I got to sleep in after a week of arduously long days. Turning on the television, I am greeted with the uber-marathon of “Mad Men” as the series finale comes just tomorrow...

To be an enabler or not to be....

  To be an enabler or not to be, that is the question. The politics of social programs is something that every candidate for office must consider. Do we go left and increase the amounts of funding and enrolled dependents, or do we go right and...

A note from mom on mothers day....

Hello beloved son. I heard your Happy Mothers Day, and I wanted to thank you. I know I was taken long before you were ready for my absence, but life always does the unexpected. Dad and brother Dave are here with me, having a nice Moms Day brunch. The...

Depression.....

  Depression. It’s a disease, a mental state, and it’s all too common. Usually tempered by drugs meant to balance whatever chemicals are going wonky in your head, it sometimes just doesn’t help. The drugs sometimes leave the patient incapable of...

The transforming of Hillary....

  “Hillary, oh Hillary, the transforming Hillary, Hillary the email lady”. Oh I love that song, though many may not know it. It’s all good. Anyway, so Hillary has transformed herself yet again. In 2007, she voted against giving illegal immigrants...

The truth about a lack of an education....

  I am truly tired of hearing about the lack of education in certain sectors of society. I do not care about the socio-economic situations of areas. I do not care about the devolution of the urban family. What I care about is the fact that there...
