Bruce Jenner Gender Change Captures US Attention – Really???

The other day when I turned on my computer and loaded my Yahoo page, it read, in bold letters: “Bruce Jenner Gender Change Captures US Attention.” Capture (v.) 1. to take captive; seize or catch by force or craft. 2. to win possession or control of, as in a contest. 3. to succeed in preserving […]

WHAT ARE STUDENTS LEARNING IN SCHOOL THESE DAYS?

Well, in my opinion, at George Washington University, not much. A few weeks ago, the Young America’s Foundation, interviewed some students there, and the video shows the results. Only 6 out of 30 students knew that we’d be commemorating 9/11 the following week. How could any 18-22 year old NOT know about 9/11? My 6-year […]

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 […]

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 […]

THE NEW MEANING OF JUSTICE

Since the day Trayvon Martin was shot, all I’ve heard are screams for “justice.”  What exactly does that mean? According to my dictionary, justice means, “n. 1.a. The principle of moral rightness; equity.  b. Conformity to moral rightness in action or attitude; righteousness.  2. The upholding of what is just, esp. fair treatment and due […]

PAULA DEEN OUT – ALEC BALDWIN IN

Up until a week ago, I didn’t know anything about Paula Deen except I always thought she had great hair.  I’ve never seen her show, I don’t subscribe to her magazine and I don’t have any of her cookbooks.  After last week, and her admission that over two decades ago she used racial slurs, her […]

WHO’S THE BOOB?

I haven’t watched the Academy Awards in years and had no clue why Seth MacFarlane was the host.  I don’t watch cartoons so I have no idea what “Family Guy” is all about.  That being said, the next day my news page featured several headlines about him and some stupid song he sang at the […]

JUST PUT SOME CLOTHES ON! PROBLEM SOLVED!

I generally muse about the political, social and cultural life in America but sometimes I see or read something beyond our shores that has me shaking my head.  Stories about the “Royals” are an example. First of all, let me say that I haven’t a clue why people are so fascinated with the English royal […]

ARE WE BECOMING A NATION OF THIN-SKINNED WHINERS?

America is getting soft and here’s why.  Everyday, I see and read about more complainers, cry-babies, and thin-skinned whiners.  Whatever happened to the old adage, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me”?  It seems that, now, everyone is offended by something and everyone is willing to don a cap […]

SHAME – A THING OF THE PAST

Bioethicist Daniel Callahan, in a recent editorial published in the Hastings Center Report, suggests that fat people should be shamed into losing weight.  His strategy involves “social pressure combined with vigorous government action.” There are lots of reasons why people are fat.  I’m not about to sit in judgment of why someone is fat because […]
