What’s so scary about impeachment?

I see the hyperventilating – from everyone – about the concept of impeachment. I’ve got to ask, what’s so scary about impeachment. I’ve been impeached more than once in my own life. For us regular peeps, it’s a firing. Rules rule, baby Every job I’ve worked has had rules. Break the rules and you are… Read more »

I am become death, the destroyer of worlds

Unconscionable (adjective) – shockingly unfair or unjust. A lone man made the decision to abandon the loyal Kurds in Syria to fend for themselves. That decision surely brands Donald Trump in the manner Oppenheimer once described himself: I am become death, the destroyer of worlds. I and I alone A phrase oft repeated by Donald… Read more »

The mystery of the disappearing blog

the mystery of the disappearing blog explains why I haven't been posting

Okay, we may be done with the overall ennui posts, but there’s still some housekeeping to do before we hit full JMD stride in Ramblings. With that said, let’s discuss my reasons for the mystery of the disappearing blog. How hard can a little writing be? Fair question. First off, it’s not that little. Over… Read more »

The Dems made my team miss the playoffs

Like most people, my life is pretty ordinary. Some good moments, some bad. A few smart decisions, a few too many not so smart. But, even before I became an adult, I was taught about responsibility (as in, my own). So, I would never even think to say something like, “the dems made my team… Read more »

But, this last action, sadly, prompts me to return to the distasteful subject. I now ask “What’s next to be sacrificed to change headlines?” It’s been a… Read more »

Why I still have hope

Must…have…more…shiny objects!

The recent circus surrounding Donald Trump is not surprising. If anything, it confirms my opinion of him. I take care to avoid impugning his intelligence. In fact, his cunning is quite formidable. He gets all the help he could ask for from a media that cannot resist. They must…have…more…shiny objects! If one looks at Trump’s… Read more »

The danger of listening to only one side

Boy, this happens to me a lot. Really, all too often. Mostly, since my niecelings were born. There is constant griping about their Mom. It sounds horrible. My sister is such an ogre. Then she calls me and tells me her side of the story. That is why I am well aware of the danger… Read more »

Guess who is coming for dinner?

We have been told, frequently, by the current resident of the oval office, that this man is fine. He can be our friend. That we, in our past, are just as bad as him. And so, after a universally panned private meeting in Finland, guess who is coming for dinner? Keeping with my fact-based post… Read more »
