A line from one of my husband’s favorite movies, the original Clash of the Titans, is “release the Kraken.”  With that directive from Zeus, all Hell is supposed to break loose.  Well, I feel the same way when I hear those on the left telling Mitt Romney, “release the tax returns.”  I guess, according to […]


Recently, Bill O’Reilly commented on the gaffe by Vice President Biden who told an audience in Virginia that the Republicans want to put “y’all back in chains” and the ad which showed a Paul Ryan look-alike throwing a grandma off a cliff.  In both cases, Bill concluded that no one, regardless of their extreme ideology, […]


Going green and paperless billing has its downside and unintended consequences. I spent 46:16 minutes on the phone trying to access my own phone records from MCI – in the end, I still don’t have access to them. Several years ago, I made the huge mistake of switching our MCI account to paperless billing.  We […]


Julian Assange, the man behind WikiLeaks, has been holed up since June in a small office in an apartment which is the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.  He sought asylum from the Ecuadorean government when England expressed its willingness to extradite this weasel to Sweden to answer questions about an alleged rape and sexual molestation. Of […]

Softball is No Longer an Olympic Sport but Obama Keeps It Alive

President Obama hasn’t given a press conference in over two months but he finds the time to answer softball questions about his favorite colors, music and super powers during an interview with a New Mexico radio station. With all the important issues facing America today, I really don’t care what music the President works out […]


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 […]

Someone Should Put a Muzzle on This Guy

I know, I know.  He’s the Vice President and we’re all supposed to be respectful of the Office.  But can someone tell me why this guy is allowed out of the house.  Just this morning, in the city of Danville, which has a black population of 48.6 percent, he told the crowd that Republicans want […]

Victory Day – August 13, 2012

Victory Day, also known as VJ Day, marks the anniversary the Allies’ victory over Japan during World War II. It followed the dropping of the devastating atomic bomb on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima on August 6 and Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. A couple of months ago, a friend sent me a link to […]

What Did I Tell You

I’ve written more than once about Anthony Weiner.  In case you forgot who he is, he’s the U.S. Representative who tweeted nude pictures of himself, and, of course, initially denied they were pictures of him and eventually had to resign from Congress when the evidence was stacked up against him.  At the time, I said, […]

Teachers’ Union Explained

Recently, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg attempted to revamp 24 of the city’s worst performing schools.  Under President Obama’s Race to the Top program, these schools would close down and then reopen with new missions, curricula, faculty and administrators.  Three thousand six hundred teachers, administrators and principals were pinkslipped at the end of the school year.  […]
