No Worries, Ted

Lord knows, I’m not a big fan of the Democrats.  They’re every bit as much bought-and-paid-for as their opponents across the aisle.  Their continual failure to fight as if they actually mean it for green solutions, women’s rights, sane gun laws, and other measures to benefit We the People drives me up a wall, andContinue reading “No Worries, Ted”

There Is Nothing

Celestine “Stiny” Chaney loved pink.  Ruth Whitford was the proud matriarch of her family.  Aaron Salter, a security guard at Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, died trying to save Stiny and Ruth, and seven other victims. Irma Garcia and Eva Mireles died trying to save their students.  Amerie Jo Garza, who’d just made the HonorContinue reading “There Is Nothing”

Our Violent Culture

There are probably a server farm’s worth of bytes floating around out there now about the incident in Hollywood a week ago (for reference, see any news or gossip outlet).  The bottom-line fact of the matter is that a famous, wealthy man perpetrated violence on another man as the whole world looked on, and thusContinue reading “Our Violent Culture”

The American Way [?]

Although Thanksgiving is not strictly an American holiday (some 15 other nations celebrate a “gratitude” tradition in one way or another), still, the date and circumstances of the Pilgrims’ first observation are, of course, unique to our nation.  It is indeed fitting that we take a day to show appreciation for family and friends, alongContinue reading “The American Way [?]”

Where Does It End?

I guess it’s somewhat comforting that Congressman Paul Gosar was censured for posting an animated cartoon online showing a character attempting to kill Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and swinging two swords at President Biden.  I mean, that’s one small victory for civility, anyway, although it rings just a bit hollow when his fellow Republicans (with twoContinue reading “Where Does It End?”
