Let that gift be you

Growing up in the seventies and eighties one of the more common sayings was “if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.” Not only was this a wonderful lesson in self-control it also helped to keep the disease known as gossip under wraps. That was then, this is now. In today’s world that beneficial saying has been replaced with “just keeping it real” as though gossip and ignorance are “real”. Whatever…

“Vote Democrat because anything is possible.”

A while ago I wrote about a Democratic Congressman out of Florida who proclaimed that he and the Liberals had the “black and hispanic vote”, the strong support of the gay community, and were going to run the country. Florida then proceeded to go for Trump. Oh the well laid plans of mice and stupid men. Still, I remember listening to this buffoon and wondering how someone with so much hate and ignorance could ever…

In Memoriam

How do you say thank you, to humans you’ve never met in this world, and never will? How? How do you say thank you to those still on Bunker Hill? At Gettysburg? Those still on the beach at Omaha or Normandy? Those still located around the 38th Parallel. How do you say thank you to those still in the Mekong Delta? Those whose last breath came in Kandahar or Mosul? I can’t. I don’t have…

Mother’s Day

Everyday something new, and quite frankly bizarre, seems to happen in these United States. Each morning “and as I rise” (Alabama) I no longer check to see whether there is  “new” news.  There doesn’t seem to be an original thought on television anymore and the humor has disappeared completely. Everyday we have “journalists” who’ve never written a cogent sentence in their entire lives repeating nonsensical blather. Every night we have “comedians” with writing staffs who…

Breaking the law is no longer a crime

James Comey sat in front of the world and stated that Huma Abedin had committed multiple crimes and yet not one politician called for her indictment. Not one. Comey furthered his part of ruining America and proving that emasculation does indeed physically exist by proclaiming to be “mildly nauseous”. His willingness to openly proclaim for all to hear that crimes, many of them felonies, have been committed, yet nothing is being done about it, should…

Liberals in La La Land

Liberals before the Obama “red line” in Syria was enforced: “Trump is a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigot who was elected because of Vladimir Putin.” Liberals after: “The bombs are beautiful (cue Brian Williams), Mr. Trump is now our President. Vladimir who?” Liberals 24 hours later: “Trump is getting us into a war with Russia.” Liberals lost in space: “Trump is wagging the dog.  I told you he was in Putin’s pocket.” How about another? Liberals…

Firing with both fists

Courage is not assertion without fear. Courage is assertion in spite of fear and comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. I was reminded of this a few days ago while having a conversation. The individual I was speaking with was making jokes after receiving yet another round of chemotherapy.  Because this person is incredibly private and humble, and would be embarrassed by my words, I will respect their wishes of privacy and not use…
