CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK-UNEXPECTED CONSEQUENCES

I’ve written before about the results and consequences facing children who are born out of wedlock.  The whole “I don’t need to be married in order to have a child” lifestyle, encouraged by the example of numerous celebrities who the media glorify, will continue to have an enormous negative impact on society.  Legitimate studies already […]

“ACCESS” – THE LEFT’S NEW BUZZWORD

There isn’t anything I like about Sandra Fluke or the story surrounding her. Miss Fluke attends one of the country’s most prestigious law schools.  She should know that forcing a religious organization or, for that matter, any employer with a religious conscience to provide birth control, as well as abortifacients, to their employees is a […]

GONE TO THE DOGS

By R. Neil Kline Before I begin my article, please let me tell you the following about myself: I am an animal lover. I have 2 degrees from a well-respected university in both Animal Science and Agriculture & Natural Recourses. I have worked with all sizes of animals in my life from mice to cattle. […]

PARENTING GONE VERY WRONG

I’m not saying that Sarah Burge is a horrible mother like Casey Anthony who, at best, failed to contact the police for thirty days after her little girl went missing, or, at worst, murdered her child (which I believe) or Susan Smith who put her two children in the car and then allowed the car […]

MAY I HELP YOU?

I would say my favorite job was back in 1968 when I worked for Macy’s on 34th Street while going to college.  I worked two nights a week and all day Saturday and netted about $22.  I loved the job.  I took orders on the phone.  I loved the different forms — the order forms, […]

CELEBRITIES WANT THEIR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

Celebrities crack me up.  Not all celebrities.  There are some actors and actresses that stay out of the limelight and relish their privacy.  I’m talking about those who are attention-seeking junkies who spend every waking moment trying to be relevant.  Then, when something goes wrong in their lives, they want the cameras off, the lights […]

HELICOPTER PARENTS ARE HOVERING

“They’re called ‘helicopter parents,’” my niece said.  I don’t know how this slipped by me, but I had no idea there was an actual name for parents who overparent and refuse to let their children take responsibility for their wrongdoing or impose any consequences of their children for their own actions.  In other words, these […]

POP ANOTHER PILL

Look, I’m no doctor.  But I’ve just learned of a new ailment that has to be the craziest thing that’s come along in a while.  I was listening to my radio when a commercial came on for a new remedy for folks suffering from, are you ready…. “Shift Work Disorder.”  This occurs when your body’s […]

THINKING WITH THE LITTLE BRAIN

The other day, my cousin sent me an article about the boom town of Williston, N.D.  Yes, North Dakota.  Thousands of men have arrived, without their families, to work for oil companies.  And, apparently, they’re getting paid very big bucks. As a result, two strip joints, Whispers and Heartbreakers, are doing phenomenal business but the […]

CRYBABIES ‘r US

We’ve become a nation of whiners and complainers and willing to sue just about anyone because we’re too fat, too thin, too short, too tall.  That’s why we have so many labels warning us of the obvious.  Can anyone tell me why they would lick a computer circuit board even if they didn’t know it […]
