Jon Meacham’s skullduggery costs him cash at MSNBC and should earn him a permanent ban.

2020-11-10T04:39:37+00:00

I have always had a great deal of respect for Presidential historian Jon Meacham. Frankly, one of the finest and more erudite commentators on Presidential politics. However, in light of this subterfuge, I will never quite believe all he tells me is true ever again. Neither should you or anyone else.   MSNBC did [...]

The Year of COVID-19: When Halloween went from witches to wonderful

2020-11-01T18:54:08+00:00

For most, Halloween was always about finding the right costume (or having your parents fashion one out of what's easy and affordable), going to parties, counting the great candy grab (when you're younger), counting the number of cocktails you've imbibed in over the evening (when you're older), and perhaps at all ages finding a [...]

A warning to those who believe this POTUS election is “in the bag”.

2020-10-30T19:15:44+00:00

Republicans have every right to be supremely confident that Donald Trump will be re-elected. I received a note this morning from a staunchly Democratic friend which read, "We got this in the bag". Really? Most of the reputable polls are leaning in favor of Joe Biden. I'm told by friends who are forced to [...]

COVID19: The side effects no one wants to talk about

2020-10-30T19:31:45+00:00

COVID19 is yet again another hard-earned lesson in who we are, who we should avoid, and who we could be if only the stain of political bias had not infected so many souls. Where once there were smart, clear-headed, rational individuals relying on common sense, there now stand, sit for the most part as they bang out laughable commentary on social media, those who we must fear are beyond saving. Certainly, they should be beyond our desire to change.

Teddy Ballgame teaches necessary message on sports and politics

2020-07-27T16:24:05+00:00

Let us then swing forward to the present, where athletes of all manner, all sexes, every race and creed, are speaking out over the systemic racism that existed in the days of Ted Williams, and have never truly receded one iota. They are using their forums, ones they have worked for, to seek positive change in America.

Ocasio-Cortez won’t back down, shows how to use the media with powerful grace.

2020-07-25T19:18:36+00:00

What Ocasio-Cortez said in those few minutes will indeed resonate for years. How others use the media will often disappear and dissipate into the mists of history. A history that neither needs nor demands such useless conversation. Ted Yoho has earned all scorn that comes his way from such an incident. Ocasio-Cortez has earned a "bravo" for incorporating patience, wisdom, and a quite yet powerful voice.

The Last Words We Say

2020-05-30T17:46:07+00:00

Florence, or "Flory" as she was called by her husband of so many decades, was my Granny. My "sainted" Granny, as I like to refer to her. A woman who loved me and taught me so very much, seeking to leave me with a few words of wisdom when she could. "People will judge you by the way you speak". "People will know you by the company you keep". "Make sure to zip your snow suit all the way to your neck so you stay nice and warm".

There’s room to argue if America is really the “greatest country in the world”.

2020-10-30T19:20:07+00:00

"Be part of the solution, instead being part of the problem".   We've all heard the phrase. To most, it's just a cliche. To others, at least in our current world, it seems to have become something this side of an insult. However, there are those of us, a very [...]

One story should end the Trump COVID19 bashing on social media. At least, for now.

2020-05-30T16:29:51+00:00

Democrats, you won't change any Republican minds at the moment. Same goes for Republicans tossing bombs at the other side. Leave this idiocy regarding who is correct and who is wrong on hydrochloroquine, (a perfect "look over here" trump misdirection play), as fodder for another day. It's just not worth the energy expenditure.
