Are We Even Talking About The Same Things? This IS BIZZARO

Uvalde School Massacre Let’s take Uvalde, TX (Robb Elementary School shootings) first. The Democratic reaction was, quite predictably, it is the assault rifles, their accessories, and the easy access that the shooter had to them on his 18th birthday. There was lots of finger pointing and blame casting on the local police department, and peopleContinue reading “Are We Even Talking About The Same Things? This IS BIZZARO”

Never Argue With A Liar Because They Always Believe Their Own Lies

There’s the piece of advice that all of us have been looking for when dealing with all these Trumpettes! Just don’t argue with them in the first place. They really do believe the lies and they are NOT going to listen to you. Another quip that comes to mind about this sort of situation isContinue reading “Never Argue With A Liar Because They Always Believe Their Own Lies”

Just WHAT Is Their Problem?

You cannot find a group of people here in the US of A that does not pound their chest, fly the flag, and insist they love the military (and law enforcement) more than the GOP. To hear them say it, they are just DRIPPING in patriotism and got it oozing from their pores. (Actually, I’veContinue reading “Just WHAT Is Their Problem?”

Just a Few “Good” People?

Yeah, right. Oh, excuse me. It was supposed to be “Only the best people”. At what? Being dyed in the wool traitors? Straight off-the-shelf lunatics? Or would you prefer white supremacists or white nationalists? Maybe card-carrying Russian trolls? Ye gods and little fishes, folks, we have a sampling of all of the above and probablyContinue reading “Just a Few “Good” People?”

Odious Chores, Necessary Business

I LOATHE housework. My sibling would love to do nothing else. Sometimes we’ve wondered if we had the same parents. That is not to say that I do not do it or that I’m bad at it. I just hate doing it. I’d rather go out and clean the barn, horse trailer, or get filthyContinue reading “Odious Chores, Necessary Business”

When What You Can Do, Say, Read, Teach, Protest, Vote On, or Be is Dictated by Somebody Else…

What’s the difference between types of government? What’s fascism? What’s socialism? Are we free?

A Conspiracy That Cannot Be Denied

Trust me on this part, the people involved will keep swearing that they are being maligned, lied about, that they are patriots, it was just tourists, etc. But we’ve had six of the House Select January 6th Investigative Committee Hearings and I’m totally convinced by the testimony by the REPUBLICAN witnesses. They are not holdingContinue reading “A Conspiracy That Cannot Be Denied”

That’s The Logic Anyway

Now what REALLY buffaloes me is why any man who used to be in law enforcement would want to make it possible for every Tom, Dick, Desmond, Naomi, Diamond, and Ruby to be packing a weapon in concealed carry. But our Very Own State Senator did exactly that and he did it in spite ofContinue reading “That’s The Logic Anyway”

Having Trouble Figuring Out Which Direction To Go In?

Stop what you are doing. Sit down and collect yourself. Because I have the advantage of nearly six decades and I can tell you that none of this is going to change in the next week or so. It took quite a few years to get here and it might take quite a few yearsContinue reading “Having Trouble Figuring Out Which Direction To Go In?”

Today is June 21, 2022, and it is the 4th day of the public hearings of the January 6th Select Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives led by Representative Bennie Thompson. I haven’t had a chance to listen to all of the testimony given today, but I’ve heard some and I know a goodContinue reading “Standing UP”
