Why Shouldn’t High Level Public Servants Prove They are Drug Free? As a condition of employment, almost everyone, from those who pick up the trash and deliver the mail, to the folks who read meters and repair the …Continue reading →

First Published: 2009 What causes a person to shoot up a school… or anywhere else for that matter? My parent’s generation was wrong about a lot of things. Playing in the fresh dew didn’t give you Polio, your …Continue reading →
NOTE: This post has nothing to do with politically motivated terrorism. That’s another subject altogether. I went to school in a different time, the late 1950’s and 1960’s. It was a rural area, and most people had …Continue reading →
We are searched when we travel, they read our e-mails, tap our phones, confiscate our nail clippers invade our private lives from the bedroom to nursery, and generally treat us like the criminals they swore to protect us from.
Once, great masters of our own domain, we have become mere pawns on someone else’s political chessboard. And they are doing it all ‘for our own good.’
When the television series The “L” Word debuted, the Lesbian community not only defused the “L” word, but relinquished their claim to it.The “L” group currently claiming the letter “L” should have been the original owners in the …Continue reading →
Among my regular ‘beats’ in the 70’s and 80’s were many of the receptions, parties and celebrations at various embassies and chanceries around Massachusetts Avenue. Several ambassadors had reputations for holding ‘first-class blasts.’ The hands down winner for …Continue reading →

Thanks mostly to the de-evolution of formerly legitimate news media into tabloid journalists, the overwhelming majority of the population is controlled by Two, statistically insignificant but STARK RAVING CRAZY MINORITIES.
You might want to put that in your “urban slang” dictionary and spell checker because odds are, you are one! Only politically vested, zealots, crazies, sheep and talk show pundits tow a strict, hard, main-line political party line …Continue reading →
Can we get ourselves and the conservative media to replace “President Trump” with “The President” when appropriate? It’s a small step toward getting our focus back where it belongs.
Before anyone thinks I’ve gone off the rails, here’s what I mean.
You don’t know me, or maybe you do, and just don’t know it.
I am your neighbor, doctor, clergyman, nurse or just another nameless, faceless stranger in the crowd. I have a state authorized, court issued permit to carry a concealed handgun.
PS: Please be advised that the majority of legal gun owners also think the morons walking through department stores with carbines just to make a point are idiots too.
While the idea may seem repugnant to some and just crazy paranoid to others, there are a lot of tech-crazy trail-blazers who think that an ear-bud is too cumbersome, or that if it says ‘Apple’ on it, they have to have it. . These people will be enough to push-start the market to its eventual conclusion.
These devices won’t come from the NSA or any other three-letter-agency, but from companies like Verizon, Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon.
Pharmacy employees at Best-Buy and Wal-Mart will be trained to perform the (by then) simple procedure.
The “bleeding edge” people will “pre-order” their implants and then stand in line overnight, in the rain to be the first to get them.
It’s time for Bible Thumpers to put the Hellfire and Brimstone on the back burner for a while. It’s time for every-day bigots to “fake” color blindness and for gay people to stop acting like a bunch of attention starved, spoiled children. And can we please ratchet down the abortion chatter for a while? In Islam, husbands do their own abortions, with long curved blades, in the street.
I want our civilization to survive long enough to have that and other arguments, so I’ll put it aside if you will, at least until we get this fixed.
More is at stake here than the right to peacefully hate one another, our very existence is in jeopardy. Maybe we can afford the luxury of bigotry and hate sometime in the future, but right now we are all, and by all, I mean every one of us who is not them, in a fight for our lives.
A bloated, corrupt, runaway government allows, and even facilitates the process, and our first and only priority should be getting our nation back into the hands of We The People. Can we please get along with one another just long enough to get our country under control?
Only then, can we be afforded the luxury of squabbling over comparatively irrelevant differences from choice of sleeping partner to skin color and political party.
If we don’t act soon, “those of us who are not them,” will vanish forever from the face of the Earth.
It was arguably the darkest, most shameful action taken by the U.S. Government in the 20th Century. I’m referring to the paranoid forced relocation of Japanese-Americans to prison camps during World War II. Before the war, very few …Continue reading →
