CHARLIE GARD, POPE FRANCIS AND THE PONTIFICAL ACADEMY FOR LIFE

I was listening last week to Glenn Beck discussing the Charlie Gard situation with Bill O’Reilly.  During the conversation, Glenn asked Bill if he had read the “official statement” from the Pope.  Neither Bill nor I had read the actual statement.  The Pope apparently said this was a “complicated matter” and the wishes of the […]

IS HEALTHCARE ON LIFE SUPPORT?

Congress has an abysmal approval rating of about 20%.  There are dozens of reasons for this rating.  Right now, my disapproval with Congress stems from the chaos in Washington over healthcare. Obamacare is imploding.  It’s up to the Republicans to repeal and replace it.  I know the Democrats will say NO to anything the Republicans […]

SACRIFICE IS NOT FACELESS

I wrote the following article in 2010 as a tribute to my Goddaughter, Jeannine, and to honor her husband, Jeremy, who was at that time in Afghanistan waiting patiently to return to the States to spend the Christmas holidays with his wife and two beautiful children.  Well, Christmas 2010 came and went.  Jeremy returned to […]

ELECTION AFTERMATH: SNOWFLAKES MELTDOWN

So, less than twenty-four hours after the election was called in Donald Trump’s favor, and after speeches by President-Elect Trump, Hillary Clinton and President Obama asking the country to unite, college students took to their campuses to whine about the outcome. The Wall Street Journal’s headline reads:  “Colleges Try to Comfort Students Upset by Trump […]

APPARENTLY, IT’S NOT OK TO TALK ABOUT IT, BUT IT’S OK TO ACTUALLY DO IT

The latest media frenzy is Donald Trump’s rude/crude remarks about women captured on a hot mic over 10 years ago.  I’m not here to defend Donald Trump’s words.  But I certainly am not “offended” by them.  When it comes to these types of dumb remarks by men, I chalk it up to the late Joan […]

31 GENDERS – NEW YORK CITY 2016

I like to keep things simple.  There was a time, in the not too distant past, when girls were girls, boys were boys.  Girls had girl parts and boys had boy parts.  They grew up and women continued to have vaginas and men continued to have penises.  There were males and there were females.  Period. […]

UNFORTUNATELY, MR. GOLDBERG, I LEAVE MY PRINCIPLES HOME EVERY TIME I VOTE

  Bernard Goldberg, who publishes my articles on his website, bernardgoldberg.com, wrote one this week entitled “Selling Out Their Principles — For Donald Trump.”  It’s a provocative analysis which prompted me to respond. Yes, I leave my principles home every time I vote.  Why?   It has nothing to do with my support of Donald […]

January 20, 2017 Won’t Come Soon Enough

As happy I will be to watch Donald J. Trump be sworn in as our 45th President, that happiness will be overshadowed by the absolute ecstasy I will feel knowing that Obama and his crew are out of our White House.  Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on your way out. This […]

Memorial Day – 2016

What’s It Going to Take?

It’s been a couple of months since the Brussels terrorist attack but I wrote this article back in March when the attack occurred.  The wifi connection on our cruise ship was very slow and it would’ve been impossible to post it at that time.  Bernard Goldberg (www.bernardgoldberg.com), however, did post it on his website.  It […]
