Hammers Required

My life has always been pretty simple in regards to those who like to run their mouths or give me unsolicited advice. When something is said that I don’t like I tell the person to stop. If they do it again I invite them to deal with this issue in a nonverbal way. Most of the time as a child, adolescent, or an adult the idiots stop running their mouths. Now this is not to…

Happy Birthday to the Red White and Blue

Born in Southern California every 4th of July celebration I can remember was pretty much the same.  Playing in the neighborhood all day while stopping to eat a wide variety of foods usually only available on holidays.  I’m sure some type of large firework show took place but I don’t really remember them.  I do remember Whistling Petes, Black Snakes, and Sparklers.  The acrid smell of smoke and burnt vegetation as a Spinning Flower once…

Thank you Dad

In this day and age the verbiage used in everyday discussion is neglect and void. Neglect of substance. Void of humility. Too many are self-proclaimed “geniuses” or “experts” or the “greatest of all time”. Lost souls referring to themselves as God, Jesus, or followers of Bernie Sanders . Oy vey. It appears the axiom “there are no new thoughts, only those new to thinking” is right as the rain. Forgive them Father for they know…

To be an American moral choices must be made

As always there is a lot going on in the world.  Information and misinformation flows continuously.  The days of taking anything at face value are long gone.  I’ve received many questions from concerned Americans about what is happening to our country and what they can do to stop this runaway train.  Of course voting properly is the key but as we’ve all seen even doing this still doesn’t guarantee the correct decisions will be made….

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free

It was the early nineties and some of my teammates and I were in a van riding to a baseball game in Southern California.  I don’t remember how the conversation began but one of my teammates started in about no longer being black but rather an African-American. This was the new verbiage being introduced reportedly by Jesse Jackson. I liked my teammate. He was kind of a quiet person (my kind of guy) who also…

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…

What am I going to do for you?

A conversation took place a while ago. If you get elected what are you going to do for me? My answer was simple. I’m not going to do anything for you. You are going to do for you! If elected I am going to go to DC and stop the lies and corruption that are eating away at our country so YOU can live your life with liberty and pursue happiness to the best of…
