PAYING PEOPLE TO VOTE: THAT’S JUST WRONG!

This is precisely why I’ll never run out of things to write about even if I don’t always have the time to do so. I woke up the other morning. Beautiful day. Sunny. Cool. We’re going to Seattle this afternoon to see a show. Perfect. I open my news page and what is the first [...]

It’s the Small Things That Drive Me Crazy!

Over the past several years, I’ve thought about the kids I graduated with from 8th grade in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  We went to St. Stanislaus Kostka School together for nine years.  We all lived in the same neighborhood.  I don’t remember anyone whose mother wasn’t a housewife.  Every father worked.  Parents were not divorced.  No one [...]

What’s Wrong With Some People?

My good friend, Joey, sent me this video entitled “On the Road:  Ohio boy pays it forward with found fortune.”  The reason I’ve posted it here is not because of the content of the video – it’s a soulful story about a father, his son, and a solider the little boy meets.  It speaks for [...]

WE EXPECT ISRAEL TO NEGOTIATE PEACE WITH HAMAS WHEN WE CAN’T GET PEOPLE HERE TO ACT CIVILLY?

Why should we expect Israel to negotiate with Hamas, terrorists who are hell-bent on eradicating Israel from the face of the Earth when I can’t even get seemingly rationale people, living in the best country in the world, under the best circumstances, to act civilly? Day after day, I deal with people who I think [...]

SEATTLE HOMELESS MEMORIAL OK – POLICE MEMORIAL ON HOLD

I love living in the Pacific Northwest, but I have to say that nearby Seattle is a really screwy place.  I’m very happy not to live in King County. In 2011, the city approved the “Leaves of Remembrance project” which allowed for bronze leaves to be installed on the sidewalks with the names of homeless [...]

THE REAL WAR ON WOMEN – REWARDED FOR KILLING HIS WIFE PART II

Back on September 10, 2012, I posted the following article: This isn’t the first time that I’ve been outraged to read about what convicts who commit the most heinous crimes are provided in prison.  And, I’m sure it won’t be the last.  Robert Kosilek’s story is just the latest outrageous waste of taxpayers’ money.  I’m [...]

What’s Gay Marriage Got To Do With It?

This is just another reason why I stopped watching award shows.   Why was a marriage ceremony officiated by Queen Latifah included at the Grammy Awards last night?  I’m sick and tired of promoters, celebrities, sponsors, or whomever, pushing their agenda on the public and injecting those opinions into what should be a show that awards [...]

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

This holiday season, I wish you icy cold snowflakes, steaming hot chocolate, endless belly laughs and plenty of warm hugs. May the spirit of love gently fill your hearts and homes.  In this loveliest seasons, may you find many reasons for joy and contentment. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful, happy and [...]

KANYE WEST – How Stupid/Delusional Can Someone Actually Be?

I agree with President Obama on just one thing – Kanye West.  In 2009, when Mr. West stole Taylor Swift’s thunder at some award show, the President called him a jackass for doing so.   Now, Mr. West continues his stupid and/or delusional behavior by saying the following: “I’m just giving of my body on [...]

ETHAN COUCH – MORE EXCUSES FOR REALLY BAD BEHAVIOR

There was a time when someone like, Ethan Couch, was called a “spoiled brat.”  But now, in a society where what’s right and wrong is getting more and more blurry every day, you can always find a professional to come up with some excuse for really bad behavior. People who can’t keep it in their [...]
