CAN WE LEGISLATE EVIL?

If you don’t believe evil exists, you might as well stop reading and continue to believe that gun control will cure all of society’s ills.  I wrote about this at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting, and I’m writing again because the left doesn’t seem to get the point. Having worked as an attorney […]

PICK A BETTER COUNTRY

I stole this title from Ken Hamblin’s very fine book because I couldn’t come up with a better title that would fit this post. I thought of calling it “I’m Sick And Tired Of A Bunch Of Overpaid Millionaire Testosterone-Driven Malcontents Who Wear A Uniform And Throw Around A Football For A Living Showing Disrespect […]

WHY I HATE/DISTRUST THE PRESS

Way before Donald Trump became President, I had a dislike and mistrust of the press.  A boss of mine, back when I was a legal secretary, who was one of dozens attorneys involved in the Getty estate, told me, “Never talk to the press.  They’ll always get it wrong.”  Solid advice. Years later, when my […]

MY RANT OF THE WEEK: CONGRESS

Sometimes I wish I was clueless.  Indifferent.  Uninformed.  Unfortunately, for me, I am none of these things.  And my poor husband has been subjected to my ranting all week about what’s been happening in Congress.  He is a saint. All week, I’ve watched Senators posturing, sermonizing, feigning concern for the American people and grandstanding. I […]

IS THIS WHAT DIVERSITY IS ALL ABOUT?

Let me start off by saying that I’ve come to the point where I hate the word “diversity.”  When I worked in the Los Angeles Dependency Court in the 90s, we were subjected to lunchtime speakers who lectured us about diversity – blacks, women, Native Americans, gays – you name it and we had to […]

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 […]
