LEGAL GUARDIANSHIP IN ILLINOIS – ANOTHER WAY OF GAMING THE SYSTEM

There are ways to pay less taxes because of loopholes in the Tax Code; people con their way into getting food stamps; many people receive disability payments with fake disabilities; others receive government funds for taking care of their own family members; recent headlines involved students cheating on college entrance exams and parents bribing athletic […]

MARIO LOPEZ – THE LATEST TARGET OF THE PC POLICE

Every day someone is being attacked by the PC police.  The mantras from these Far Left loons are either “you’re a racist,” “you’re a homophobe,” “you’re a misogynist” and it goes on and on.  The majority of people today are afraid to express any innocuous opinion they may have because they’re afraid of offending someone.  […]

SEATTLE AND POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

When my husband and I bought, what was to be, our retirement home on Bainbridge Island, Seattle was a pretty nice city.  For many years before we actually made the permanent move from Los Angeles, we’d visit a few times a year and always ferried over to Seattle to spend the day walking around and […]

WE, THE PEOPLE

Yes, that’s what the preamble to our Constitution says.  It’s all about us.  Not the Senators or Representatives we vote for to represent us.  So why don’t they work for us?  One of the most aggravating things I see going on in Washington D.C., and there are plenty, is the ability of those people NOT […]

IT ALL BEGAN WITH “MANKIND”

I think it all began with the word “mankind.”  Someone woke up one day in the 80’s and thought the English language needed some tweaking.  Somehow the use of the word “man” in “mankind” was considered exclusive and needed to be more gender-neutral like “humankind.”  I’ve always found the use of the word “humankind” to […]

MY LAWYER SAID I DIDN’T DO IT

When I read the story of the little 18-month old who fell 11 decks to her death from a cruise ship, I was horrified.  I chose not to have children so I couldn’t even begin to imagine the loss felt by her parents.  The initial reports said the baby was accidentally dropped by her grandfather […]

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

That’s the first thing I said to myself when I heard about the $190,000 grant received by the University of Washington from the National Institute on Drug Abuse which will partially fund a study to explore the effects of marijuana on an unborn baby.  Between me and my husband, we have almost 50 years of […]

I SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN

In 2011, I wrote a column entitled “Let’s Ban Another ‘N’ Word” because I was sick and tired of people using references to Hitler and his Nazi regime to label and describe people and their actions with whom they disagree.  I’m talking about people and their actions here in the United States.  Whatever the situation […]

THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

With few exceptions, every time I turn on a news program or open a website, the so-called reporters or journalists are screaming “the sky is falling!” In the mainstream media, there’s always some catastrophic reportage about the President Trump and/or Mrs. Trump.  So many great things are happening in this country, but you’d never know […]

DECADES OF DOING NOTHING

Despite what the dishonest media want us to believe, President Trump didn’t create the current illegal immigration mess.  Congress and the courts created it and it’s been around for decades.  And President Trump isn’t the first to bring our attention to illegal immigration.  There was a time when Liberals, such as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, […]
