Did you love your parents?

I don’t want to post this. I keep waiting for a storm of conscientious and brave Republicans to make things right. They haven’t. No one is changing the mind of the person in the oval office. No one but you, that is. And that’s why I’m asking, Did you love your parents? This isn’t aimed… Read more »

Credit due or credit risk?

There is much talk recently about history. Making it and repeating it. Neither man nor media defines such events. The ultimate arbiter of history is time. And, regardless if it is years or ages that pass, that final judgment may all hinge on whether this past week is credit due or credit risk. It’s not… Read more »

Lying and crying

So, where were we? Well, let’s not dilly dally. I’m ready to jump right in to another (ugh) political post. This one will be a little different, as I discuss what appears to be Trump’s overarching “strategy”. Near as I can tell, it basically amounts to lying and crying. Yes, yes, I seem to be… Read more »

Pardon my indecision

During the week leading up to my big Birthday BBQ, a lot was happening in the world and here. And the following week, I was too bushed to post much. Plus, I have another problem. Too many things worthy of commentary have happened. Because I’m not sure where to begin, I ask you to pardon… Read more »

We need more nose jobs

Last week, my childhood friend and I were talking about my plan to switch from Comcast to ATT (more on that later this week). His caution to me: beware I don’t cut off my nose to spite my face. After careful consideration, I’ve come to the conclusion that we need more nose jobs. Now, my… Read more »

Hiring the best people

I’ve worked in retail and in Corporate America. Over those many years I’ve hired a lot of people. I tried very hard at hiring the best people. It’s not easy. But, I think I managed a pretty good track record. All it takes is following some pretty basic rules. Admittedly, when I was a young… Read more »

The fine line between intent and negligence

So, my next door neighbor’s house caught on fire last Friday. In the ensuing excitement, many thoughts crossed my mind. Even at the time, I see how the event is akin to our country’s situation, writ small. In some measure, I am more aware of the fine line between intent and negligence. Let me get… Read more »

Fine, then call Trump what he is: a liar

Tough headline, right? But, why not? Why dance around the subject with wimp-out words or hints and innuendos. The former candidate, now president despises such practices. So, yeah, I’ll not shy to take the challenge. You want it? Fine, then call Trump what he is: a liar. “I think the big problem this country has… Read more »

Upon which side sit my better angels?

Producing a blog can be a reasonably comfortable affair. Even those, like mine, that attempt to create a new post every day. Unlike mine, though, many of those blogs stick to a single subject. The dilemma in a rambling blog like this one is the debate over what subject matter should be included. And that’s… Read more »

What I’ll do to keep my job

Man. It’s so tough sometimes. Mouths to feed, bills to pay. And it doesn’t matter if the job market’s good or bad. You just know it’s going to be tough finding another job, let alone a better one. Which, almost always, leads to the thought, “What I’ll do to keep my job”. I had this… Read more »
