Down the Drain

According to Sen. Tom Coburn’s 2011 Wastebook, in 2010, Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop, a Pakistani arts organization, was awarded $20 million over the next four years to create 130 episodes of an indigenously produced Sesame Street. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) provided the first $10 million for the project in FY 2011. The […]

STAY OUT OF MY KITCHEN!

Let me start out by saying I’m not one of those size 2 gals who won’t eat a Hershey’s kiss because they’re afraid they’ll gain an ounce.  I’m a normal size 12 woman who has fought against weight gain all my adult life.  I try and watch what I eat, not always successfully, but get […]

Up in Smoke

Don’t our men and women in the military have enough problems fighting our enemies without having to worry about the safety of the equipment they’re using.  You’d think so.  But, according to a recent report by Rob Wolchek in Detroit,the military should be concerned. Tower Defense & Aerospace in Detroit touts an alcohol and drug-free […]

WHO WE NEED IS A GORDON RAMSAY

I think Gordon Ramsay is great.  For those of you unfamiliar with him, he’s a world-class chef, entrepreneur, Michelin Star restaurant owner and the star of several reality tv shows, my favorite being Kitchen Nightmares. When restaurants are failing miserably, Ramsay is called to save the day.  He speaks with the owners, managers and employees, […]

WHOSE MONEY IS IT, ANYWAY?

If you’re a regular reader of my posts, you’ll know that I have no respect for any of the Kardashian litter, Kim, Khloe or Kourtney.  I’ve always said that the exploits of these three useless twits, the offspring of OJ’s now deceased attorney/friend, Robert Kardashian, is payback for his actions when he met with OJ […]

IF I WERE EMPRESS…

For those of you who are familiar with this website, no doubt you know the writings of another contributor, Burt Prelutsky.  A few weeks ago, he wrote a wonderful article entitled, “If I Were King” in which he listed those things he would change if ever he were king.  Well, I liked the article so […]

CUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S UMBILICAL CORD TO TAX DOLLARS!

I like whistleblowers.  I like anyone who risks their own hide to expose corruption.  I particularly like the two young people who posed as a pimp and a prostitute and exposed the community organizing group, ACORN, (which received tons of federal dollars) after its employees encouraged them to lie to the IRS and provided them […]

SEX, DRUGS BUT NO ROCK ‘N ROLL

Recently, I’ve been seeing headlines on my web page regarding the National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) and its activities.  It seems like there was a whole lot going on with sex and drugs so I figured I’d check it out because it all sounded far more interesting than Elena Kagan’s confirmation hearings. The NIH is […]
