The damnation of the english language....

Damn you texting. Damn your abbreviations, and your lazy offerings of phrases. I remember when english was actually a language, when people strove to learn and use it correctly. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, etc, all used to create atmosphere...

And so it is with todays stars.....

“Hey, no, what are you doing? Yo yo yo yo what are you doing? Stop it. Come on. I said stop it. Yo, what are you doing?” an irritated Bieber can be heard asking the crowd in a video. A few girls giggled in the background, but that didn’t soften the...

Some Babylon 5 wisdom....

  There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way.   The war we fight is not against powers and principalities – it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the...

What if....

  Science fiction allows us set our mind free, especially when it concerns our lives, our time left. One question, in particular, haunts some of us, if not all of us. What if, on the day of your death, an alien came to you and said that, barring...

Let me tell you a story....

  Let me tell you a story. It’s a boy-meets-girl story. It begins in Tampa Florida. Boy is in an unhappy relationship, and takes to the computer for a bit of game playing. He’s on AOL and playing card games with a chat room connected to it. A girl...

Tsk, tsk....

  Okay….this is the last piece I will do on this particular subject, though I am sure it will come up as part and parcel of why Hillary cannot be President…Emails. Early in the seventies another president got caught in a bad situation, but he had...

The problems we face....

  It doesn’t matter which horse you back, this political race isn’t highlighting what it should be. We have problems…problems that both the left and right, liberal and conservative, republican and democrat can agree on….       ...

Fears and promises...

  Things just seem to be getting worse. Today it was revealed that, more than likely, due to the low gas prices, there will be no Social Security increase next year. Why you ask? Well, the government will spin it and try to give you a happy answer,...

You were the stars in my sky....

  You were the stars in my night sky   You made me the man I never was   You made me think life could be full   You made me think life could be mine       You worked me into a corner like a trapped rat   You made...

The omnipresent cloud...

  The omnipresent cloud, dark and malevolent   Killing the spirit, darkening the soul   Heartbreak and hopelessness, bundled together   A silo of troubles, a lock on the door   Trapped inside, and only I have the key   ...

A shooting and the reaction....

  Gun control is back in the media, thanks to a slug (who I shall not name here) going on a shooting spree at a community college. His motives aside, this crime has become all too familiar. Our dear President seems to believe that more gun control...

A ringing of the alarms...

  I have made it known before that I like Benjamin Netanyahu. If we could elect him as our president, I would vote for him. Amidst the saber rattling of Syria, Russia, Iran, and America, there is a rattlesnakes tail dancing, alerting the world that...
