In a week that included Veterans Day, the attack on Paris shocked the world,  I won’t go into the religious distortions used by Islamic militants.  Lord knows Christian religions were as guilty in the past.

Still chugging

Yes, still kicking…still ranting.  Today’s rant makes me wonder about the sanity of government.  When it cooperates with corporate greed, abusive results seem the norm. Read more…

Where is Andrew Dice Clay when you need him.  OK, I think his humor is puerile stuff more suited to a movie like The Interview or eighth grade to collegiate humor — depending on the maturity of those involved.  But, hey! If you enjoy that stuff,  your problem, right? Read more…

Hey, two days in a row; on a roll.   I’m still here and typing.   Will wonders ever cease?   And, it been a lot longer time between hands — that’s for sure.  If I can’t tell you about my poker, suffer through this… Read more…

Income Inequity

Income inequity might be two of the dumbest words ever to issue forth from politicians mouths.  They climb into their bully pulpits and lament about this horrid situation.  Poppycock!  Pure, unadulterated poppycock.  Now I’d love to be ten or a hundred or better yet a thousand times richer than I am.  Who wouldn’t.  But don’t expect me to lament I wasn’t born with the silver spoon but darn glad it happened where it did.

I sometimes feel I was on that crew.

I haven’t really followed this Sterling brouhaha.  I guess he said some very nasty things to his biracial girlfriend in the privacy of his home.  He is a billionaire.  He donates to the NAAPC and Democratic party and has a biracial girlfriend.  Not the typical source for spewing what he spewed.
