Super Tuesday

Well, that was interesting! I think it pretty much lined up as anticipated.  There weren’t any major surprises that I can think of, unless you’re a Republican that thinks the Donald is going down in the third round. Bernie continues to show up against Hilary, but unless something radical occurs,… Continue reading

Kevin Spacey – We get what we deserve

Kevin Spacey, paraphrasing Edward R Murrow, said we get what we deserve.  I think that is a great point of his, but it brings up a problem.  You can’t operate a business at a loss and expect to stay in business, it just isn’t feasible.  Money has to come from… Continue reading

Political Prognostications

No, I do not refer to them as my PP.  That would be juvenile, which is just funny as hell, and therefore not a serious form of humor. Bernie – He’s struggling to bring in the win in the south like I thought he would.  He’s not losing by much,… Continue reading

The SS

No, not Ze Germans.  I mean Selective Service.  I’ve been inundated with radio commercials lately talking about required registration for SS, SSS as they’re calling it now.  I find it rather telling that they use the stick rather than the carrot.  “Don’t break the law.”  “You won’t qualify for college… Continue reading

What if the Congressional Budget were handled more like the Thunderdrome?

I was taking a brief look at President Obama’s proposed budget.  I haven’t dived into the details yet, I was more interested in the big numbers.  You know- How much do you want?  How much do we have?  If you subtract A from B is the remainder a negative number?… Continue reading

Ah, Iowa.

Interesting night.  Trump lost, which I expected.  He reacted pretty much like I expected, too.  I think he’s probably jumped the shark at this point, but we will see. Bernie put in a much stronger showing than I anticipated.  I was not paying close attention, but from what I recall,… Continue reading

The Donald

I’m glad he’s running.  There, I said it.  Anyone that knows me will probably raise an eyebrow, or two, depending on whether they can do that Spock thing, or not, but hear me out.  We’ve been stuck in a political rut for quite awhile.  We have a basic two party… Continue reading

A Shameless Plug- And an appeal to your deeply seated guilt

Hey guys, My son, Joshua, is participating in a fundraiser for his school. The funds will go towards the construction of the Lion’s Lair 2.0 Playground, which is not only a school playground, but a community one, as well. I actually helped build the original Lion’s Lair when I was… Continue reading

I observed a drug deal…

Well, actually, I observed two, but I’m going to talk about the first one. I was enjoying a Frosty at the park with my daughter.  At two and half years of age, you can get away with entertaining a child by just letting them run around you while sharing licks… Continue reading
