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

To the future

I’m reading through a book that a dear friend sent me. It has an absolutely fantastic line in it. “…This space, however convenient it had been for his recent past, was much too small to hold his future.” I look around and see the same thing with me.  It isn’t… 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

Bernie put in a much stronger showing than I anticipated.  I was not paying close attention, but from what I recall,… Continue reading

Play that funky music white boy- Kareem on Trump

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote a nice essay on Trump, which I think illustrates both his popularity and the frustration many feel right now.  I think it’s a much better expression of what I wrote the other day. For all of that, my biggest takeaway wasn’t something profound, just humorous.  He calls… Continue reading
