If You’re Not Ready to Do the Time, Stay Home

To celebrate our 60th and 65th birthdays, my husband and I were going to take a cruise to Egypt and Israel.  We were all set to book the cruise when all hell broke loose in the Middle East.  Even though Princess still goes to there, we’re not about to travel in volatile waters.  We heed […]

National POW/MIA Recognition Day

Today, September 16, 2011, is National POW/MIA Recognition Day.  May we never forget those who sacrificed so much for all of us. There are 1,741 American personnel listed by the Defense Department’s POW/MIA Office as missing and unaccounted for from the Vietnam War, as of April 2009. The number of United States personnel accounted for […]

Down the Drain

Anyone who’s read my website, knows how much I HATE tax credits.  When someone’s tax credit exceeds the amount he pays in federal income taxes, the money he receives back from the government is welfare.  Period.  Now it seems the IRS has given $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year to illegal aliens – […]

There are SO many reasons why I don’t go to politically-correct San Francisco.  Every time I read about new legislation from the City Council or the city’s tolerance of bums and drugs, it makes my head spin. Well, I just learned for the first time that nudism is actually legal in San Francisco.  Just one […]


Last month, a teacher in Florida was temporarily reassigned to a non-student contact position because of something he wrote on Facebook.  “I’m watching the news, eating dinner when the story about New York okaying same-sex unions came on and I almost threw up.  And now they showed two guys kissing after their announcement.  If they […]


Not many Americans can forget exactly where we were on September 11, 2001.  I received a call from a friend who simply said, “turn on your tv.”  By the time I did, here on the west coast, the horror had already unfolded and I spent much of the day, zombie-like, in front of my computer, […]

Down the Drain

Last month, the U.S. Department of Interior announced that it was giving four states $5,802,180 in grants for projects designed to protect various types of threatened or endangered beetles. This $5.8 million is only part of a group of 48 grants totaling $53.3 million which will go to seventeen states to develop conservation plans or […]

I don’t know much about Katy Perry but I do like some of her music.  Although I’m not quoting it as a viable source, wikipedia says she grew up in Santa Barbara with parents who were Christian pastors.  That being said, how does someone with what appears to be a decent upbringing get so out […]


While many intellectuals, academics and liberals advocate for the legalization of marijuana and the use of medical marijuana, I would venture to say that few, if any, have worked in the area of child abuse and neglect.  I have for over twenty years.  I can safely say that between 70-80% of those cases are the […]


Joe Biden may look like Jeff Dunham’s ventriloquist dummy, Walter, but I think even Walter makes a lot more sense. Honest to God, I have no idea how Joe Biden got to be Vice President.  I remember when he ran for President in 1988 but backed out soon after a report surfaced that he, uh, […]
