Electors remorse

I thought I would have all kinds of things to say about the election. I thought I might be excited about it. That was many years ago of course. In the ensuing years, I have become much more cynical and hardened to the allure of politicians. Lots of folks place way too much faith in politicians and... Sign in to see full entry.

Why does it make me so angry?

Every year at this time I just want to beat the holy crap out of some brain-dead idiots. Parents and kids spend hours carefully carving pumpkins into memories. Yards and porches are decorated in the spirit of Halloween. Then some vandals deem it “fun” to smash those works of arts and decorations on... Sign in to see full entry.

In defense of the undecided voter

Yes, I realize the election is bearing down on us. In fact, my ballot is filled out with one exception, the biggie. Lots of people have wondered how it can be that at this point, some of us haven’t made up our minds. Let me answer that by asking how it can be that the two most powerful people in...

Of David Letterman, Mitt Romney and Bill O'reilly

David Letterman of the Late Show on CBS has been carrying on for some time that Mitt Romney won’t go on his show. President Obama has been on the show but not his challenger. My son asked what the big deal was that Mitt wouldn’t go on Letterman and “did it really matter?” I can see his point, after... Sign in to see full entry.

Debatable questions

Questions I would like answered. First, Obama keeps saying that he “inherited a bad situation” with regards to the economy. I would contend he didn’t inherit it as much as he asked for it, he was running at the time after all. Second, exactly how can tax cuts suddenly spur small businesses to hire...

The double-edged sword of politics

As voters, we all need to pay attention to politics and all the races that we will be involved in voting on. It is a lop-sided event though, with presidential candidates grabbing most of our attention while the races that involve local taxes and officials may elude our attention. It is those local...

Debatable thoughts

Round one to Romney, or so the pundits score it. I don’t know if I would say he won or just that he didn’t do bad. After the 47% remarks, I think a lot of folks might have expected to see a more down keyed Mitt but he came out firing, a sense of urgency in his voice that conveyed he is convinced if...

Changes

The one thing that never changes is change. We growl and moan when our “smart” phone is updated and suddenly the old connectors don’t work. Some are vexed when their favorite news personality is booted or moves on to greener pastures. A lot of us whine when the seasons change despite the fact they... Sign in to see full entry.

Headline time

Gray wolf pack in Wash. State will be shot dead after preying on cattle. It turns out this is happening in my “back yard.” It has been the lead story in the local newspaper for quite a while. http://www.statesmanexaminer.com/ Of course it gets national attention because of the protected gray wolves...

The prattle about Seattle

The odd thing, and everyone knows it’s true, had the situation been reversed and Green Bay benefited from the replacement official’s gaffe, every sportscaster worth their, whatever sports casters have, would have echoed the sentiments of the Seattle radio announcers, where the tie goes to the...
