Dear Black Lives Matter;

  Dear Black Lives Matter;       Over the weekend, a group, carrying your banner, was heard chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” only a day after a sheriffs deputy in Texas was shot in killed in cold blood. Now, while I...

The life of a bill....

  Why does a bill take so long and cost so much? Why can’t there be a simple passing of a law? Well, it’s simple. We’ll simply call it the add-on phenomena. It goes like this…..       Republican Senator Joe Blow writes a bill that will...

A decision to make....

  The promise of a true friend is that one quality no one can ever see until something horrible happens. It’s that time when you have the worst day of your life and they clear their calendar to be by your side. I, in my lifetime, have had the...

Promises not kept.....

  As people who know me are aware, I am a teller of truths. I am not an optimist. As I look at posts by other bloggers who are hurt by the actions of those closest to them, as I look at political reports and articles, as I look at religious...

Courageous or entitled?

  There’s a television ad out there right now for a car that asks the question “When did it become courageous to leave work on time?” and then it goes on rambling about coming in early and leaving late being the trend, and how leaving on time...

The streets of Heaven are overcrowded....

  The streets of heaven are overcrowded with angels, and I wish I could resolve that. So many angels taken before their time. My mother gave two angels to heaven before they were born…they were born stillborn. My family (extended) have given their...

A life sentence....

  James Holmes, the Colorado Movie theatre shooter has been sentenced to life without parole. Twelve dead, seventy injured…and he gets a life. It really is not fair. That means an average of $32,000 a year for at least forty years (as long as he...

The forgotten voter....

  There is a forgotten American voter. Born and bred here, entitled more than any to be here, and registered to vote here, yet virtually unmentioned in political discussion or hypothetical political models…the American Indian. With a current...

An American mistake, with explanation.

  I was going to do a poem, but it stalled in my head due to other things that were in the way. Iran. I did a piece on the new agreement, and received some grief over my stance with people almost word-for-word saying Iran was, is, and always will...
