The Pervasive Stupor Of The Entitlement Mentality

Last week I thought I had made a solid argument in defense of Hobby Lobby (and for all of us who are taxpayers as well), on the basis that it is wrong for one who feels entitled to force others to flip the bill for that so-called entitlement, to boot. Reaction, though, yielded that the entitlement... Sign in to see full entry.

Natural Food Substitutes

Food substitutes abound, because food items are either expensive with the associated food, or scarce, or substitutes provide a healthier alternative. People with allergies or food sensitivities have to be careful either to have only the sustitute to a food item or only the genuine food itself. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Grateful Mental Faux Pas Perspective

My mental blunder in online Scrabble last night bothered me so much that I had a hard time sleeping.... but there are worse things. I have been in a slump lately in my online Scrabble matches. I had been looking forward to getting a victory for once after coming home from work. All my letters could... Sign in to see full entry.

No Money Is One's Own But Must Fund Others' "Rights"

The twisted way liberals look at rights perturbs me. The left does not promote personal responsibility but instead trumpets the idea that those with more must ensure the rights of others--with a particular focus on their rights as sexual beings. Business, including small businesses are affected by... Sign in to see full entry.

Speaking In Ye Olde Manner

Language evolves, but language also endures. Saying certain words or expressions evokes an older time, but in doing so, they also add a refreshing spice to our contemporary language usage. One fall day I went to help a cousin (or second cousin?) crush apples for apple cider. The cranking of the old... Sign in to see full entry.

You Can't Stop Stupid

Stupidity is like gravity. The lazy, careless people will always gravitate to it. Even measures taken to ensure against stupidity do not work entirely. Recently at my work place, the parking lot was freshly striped so that the drivers can clearly see where the parking spaces are. So on the morning... Sign in to see full entry.

Not All "Ski Bums" (Or "Snoboard Bums") Are Bums

The unemployment check was what I had overheard one ski bum say he was looking forward to, so that he could hit the slopes again. In the county where I live, there is an alpine hamlet fairly close to the ski resort. Many ski bums will stay there during the winter months, and they will often go up to...

Obama: "This Time, Putin, I Am Really, Really, Really Mad"

Considering Syria, Putin smelled weakness in the air. Since Obama never did respond to Syria crossing the red line there, Putin calculated that he also would never levy any force against him in the Ukraine-Crimea question. Obama prides himself in diplomacy. He had a talk with Putin that lasted over... Sign in to see full entry.

Freedom Is Not Suppled By The Government

From time to time, we need to look at the views of the founding fathers of our American country. I wholeheartedly agree with what Thomas Jefferson states, a quotation I saw earlier today: "The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in...

The Same Debit NumberAgain And Again

The Netflix monthly charge is a monthly given in my checking account: $8.69. But in peering at my transactions of the past month, I saw that same number again and again: $8.69 at the drug store; $8.69 at Winco; and $8.69 at the auto parts store. That is such an odd number to show up multiple times... Sign in to see full entry.
