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. […]

THE BIAS-FREE LANGUAGE GUIDE-GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

I often wonder what type of person wakes up in the morning wondering, “What will offend me today?” Well, I found out this week. The Bias-Free Language Guide was written and edited by Sylvia Foster, Szu-Hui Lee, Joelle Ruby Ryan, Sean Moundas and the Women’s Commission members in the 1990s who drafted the “Guide to […]

NOW CAN WE MOVE ON TO REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUES

Once again, the Supreme Court failed to exercise “judicial restraint” and opted to actively legislate from the bench by deciding that homosexuals have a “right” to marry in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Five unelected lawyers decided to do away with our democratic process and power of our legislatures and redefine the word “marriage” […]

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 […]

Bacon is Now Offensive

This is a perfect example of how political correctness has run amok in this country.  One person is “offended” by something, so the rest of us – who are in the vast majority – have to cowtow to that one person.   We see it everyday in other situations where a small minority of people, such […]

Isn’t It Ironic?

CHIARA D’ANGELOU’S 15 MINUTES OF FAME

Some people are just pathetic. Some people will do just about anything to be noticed. Some wear provocative clothing. Some dye their hair blue. Some get lots of tattoos. Some sit in trees protesting the go ahead of an already-approved building project. Such is the case of Chiara D’Angelou, who decided she didn’t have anything […]

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 […]
