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 »

Ho hum

Must see TV! Miss it not! Call in sick! Send the kids to school (even if there it’s ut for the summer)! Lock the doors! Turn off the ringers! The biggest testimony in, well, whenever is going to happen this Thursday. Eh, or not. I would like nothing better than to hear salacious and riveting information… Read more »

Game of phones

There’s a madman on the throne! I heard a word used the other day, in one of the endless stream of talking heads discussing Donald Trump. The word was swiftly passed by and not given a second thought, but I thought, instantly, it is such the correct word. Fealty. There’s been much talk that Donald… Read more »

Insecurity I get

Money can’t buy you happiness. If you need proof, check out Donald Trump and me. Ever since he began campaigning (to be honest, I never paid attention to him before then), I’ve been wondering what was driving Mr. Trump’s ultra-sensitivity to slights, perceived and real. Surely, a man with such tangible success in both real… Read more »

I’m trying to become a Republican

Man! I have so much more fun on other topics. I’m betting you even have more fun when I post other topics (though probably not as often as me). But these insane situations keep pushing me back into political posts. I wish I could become a Republican. They seem to have it so easy. Bad… Read more »

How are you not screaming?

I think I understand some of it. America is a nation of self-interested and self-centered people. In an otherwise insulated world, that’s not a terrible thing. You first. Then family (or the reverse, for some). Then maybe some friends. Possibly, if everything else is going well, the neighborhood. And, in especially generous moments, cutting a… Read more »

Struggling with health issues

Promises, promises. Today, the Republican side of Congress tries again to pass its health care law, a not much better named AHCA (vs. ACA). Hopefully, you’ve taken time to review the bill’s major thrusts, if not the whole bill (few have either the time or the spare brain cells to read the entire document). You… Read more »
