Isn’t that special?

As I’ve recently reminded everyone, I’m a Florida Gators grad. That means I’ve long-held nothing but dislike for anything from Alabama. Sure, I have one of my favorite ex-bosses living in Alabama. I also have enjoyed a nice golf outing there. But, Alabama has both Nick Saban and SEC foes. So, I’ve had no love… Read more »

I can’t…I just can’t…

I promised you endless updates on Halloween, from this new this year to past memories and I’ve done my bit. I promised you no interruptions for political or social commentary and I’ve been true to my word. But I can’t ignore yesterday’s disastrous comments from the man occupying the presidency. I just can’t. I’ll not… Read more »

Can I get my money back?

I’m such a soft touch. A sucker. I thought I was helping Puerto Rico out. I totally bought into the fake news that getting devastated by a category 5 hurricane was a disaster. Silly, gullible me. It’s not a disaster. Not a “real” one, anyway. If you read yesterday’s post, you know I was ready… Read more »

Guns don’t kill people

Let me stop you right there and say that I don’t know the answer. I don’t know how we make this better. How to keep people safe and respect the freedoms of Americans to own guns. Okay? So, take down your defenses (from either side) and put away the backlash. If you’re calm, maybe I… Read more »

“It’s a very big ocean”

I’ll admit, when I was growing up, I didn’t really know where Puerto Rico was. I mean, we were taught geography in school and I had an atlas, but I was always confused. Was it up near New York (I heard there were a lot of Puerto Ricans living there)? It wasn’t until I owned… Read more »

What is patriotism?

There’s been quite a lot of conversation about this recently, spoken and written with the utter certainty of someone who has an opinion. Although I am never in short supply of an opinion, I am often just short of sounding like a doofus, so I thought I might give this just a bit of research… Read more »

Racist or coward?

Ugh. You hadda go do it. You just couldn’t let me enjoy my Halloween preparations in peace. Ugh. Okay, let’s just get through this. The latest expression of…I’m actually at a loss for words…from the person inhabiting the office of the presidency has left me further distressed over the state of our nation and our… Read more »

The road more traveled

“One has to wonder what they’re worried about. There’s something. There always is.” This isn’t where I was going for my blog post today. Really. I had been on an unannounced sabbatical from political posts. But the recent comments from the current president have chilled me and quickened my pulse at the same time, forcing… Read more »

Out on a limb

  Look what’s back! Blowing off the cobwebs on this old favorite in honor of an especially bizarre interview by a loyalty-challenged (and possibly paranoid) famous celebrity. I know you’ll see the theme, but can you guess the celebrity?         Thrown under the bus – Oddly enough, this is a recent (and overused… Read more »

Was he not paying attention?

Let’s get the housekeeping out of the way, so we can begin an impartial discussion. I don’t care for Donald Trump. I don’t care for his behavior in public. I don’t care for his rudeness towards anyone who doesn’t praise him. I don’t care for his lack of preparation and uninformed opinions. I don’t care… Read more »
