I didn’t like my roofer’s work, so I hired a pediatrician

I get it. Well, I get some of it. Tired. Frustrated. Angry. As in, “Why can’t anyone in Washington do their darn job?” Hey, you don’t have to tell me twice. I’m down here in South Florida where the nationally famous mosquitoes live. Instead of simply coming up with money to support the study and… Read more »

Women are weaklings

I’m so glad America is fed up with political correctness so we can get this out in the open once and for all. It’s always been tiptoed around because “politeness” demanded no one actually say what was fact: women are weaklings. I know it’s true because Donald Trump says so. Now, hold on. Before you… Read more »

Party time

Where are their heads at? I’ve taken enough shots at the leading candidates in this year’s Presidential race, it’s time to tackle the Big Two parties.

People must view their personal situation as so dire, so desperate, that they hope for “change” no matter what the cost.

The revulsion of knowledge

“Some questions are better left unanswered”, “Information overload”, “That’s more than I needed to hear”, “You don’t wanna know”, “TMI” With three and a half months still left in the presidential campaigns, I am suffering from information indigestion. In this case knowledge is powerfully uncomfortable. The toughest part of trying to make the best decision… Read more »

Get real

After this extended series of politically influenced posts, my blog has become increasingly depressing and downbeat (at least in my mind), two words I never want to characterize my writing. So, it is with great relief that I post this final politically oriented topic. Hopefully, I can resist my frustration at the election campaigns enough… Read more »
