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 […]

EINSTEIN MAY NOT HAVE SAID IT, BUT IT’S STILL TRUE

I recently received an email which included this picture of Albert Einstein and the quote.  Included with the email were pictures captioned, “a day at the beach,” “cheering on your team,” having dinner with your friends,” “out on an intimate date,” “having a conversation with your BFF,” and “a visit to the museum,” all of […]

AND THE WORST PARENT AWARD GOES TO….

When I read articles or online posts about people doing a horrible job raising their children, I can’t help but think we’re really circling the drain.  This great country is being overrun with uninformed, misinformed, stupid people who are breeding at an alarming rate.  Worse yet, many of them have no problem displaying their inadequacies […]

FATHERS – THEN AND NOW

I’ve posted this for the last two years.  I thought it was worth posting again. My parents had me and my brother late in life (but not by today’s standards).  When I was born in 1951, my father was 46, my mother 38.  By 1960, my father was a widower raising an 8-year girl and […]

YOU DON’T LIKE IT, DON’T EAT IT

I thought we heard enough from the food police disguised as the First Lady and the Mayor of NYC.  Well, I was wrong.  We now have a 9-year old “scolding” the CEO of McDonald’s for not wanting kids to be healthy so they can live long and happy lives. Yes, Hannah Robertson, whose mother is […]

ALCOHOL, SEX AND CYBERSPACE = SOCIOPATHIC BEHAVIOR

Three teenagers are facing charges of sexual battery, dissemination of child pornography and possession of child pornography in connection with their assault on 15-year old, Audrie Potts. First of all, I hate that the media refers to these savages as “16-year old boys.”  When you turn 13, you’re a teenager; you’re no longer a “boy.” […]

A SHOE IN FOR SUCCESS

As far as I’m concerned, children have one job – actually two jobs – their first job is to be a kid, and their second job is to go to school.  Period.  It never dawned on me while I was growing up that I had a choice.  There was no choice.  I went to school […]

EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN

We just had the pleasure of having a couple of out-of-town friends stay with us and had some interesting conversations during their visit.  We all agreed that things just ain’t the way they used to be.  No surprise there, of course. As we talked about different topics, we kept saying, “when did this become acceptable?” […]

Woody Allen: Father and Brother-in-Law

Anyone who knows me knows that I won’t buy a book, see a movie, or purchase a DVD if it’s written by or stars some idiot actor who spouts off about this country, glorifies tyrants or abuses children.  (Believe me, that leaves relatively few choices but that’s okay.) Case in point:  Woody Allen.  After he […]

And They’re Not Even Made Out of Gold

This is an amazing story about today’s culture. There’s a limited edition of a sneaker designed by Kanye West (remember our President called him a “jackass” a couple of years ago), the Nike Air Yeezy 2, which went on sale yesterday for $245.  Only 5,000 pairs will be sold so sneaker collectors are apparently going […]
