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 […]

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 […]
