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 somewhere, and you can be… Continue reading Kevin Spacey – We get what we deserve
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 that I have not learned… Continue reading To the future
When you’re facing the rat race of life- taxes, elections, a backlog on your Netflix Que, it’s important to maintain perspective. Some people have a mantra, others a particular song and some turn to religion. For me…
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, however, which is better than… Continue reading Political Prognostications
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 grants or scholarships.” “You’ll never… Continue reading The SS
The secret, of course, is very simple. The best way to play, indeed the only real way to win long term, is to not play at all. Compromise instead, which in the current climate, is basically an anathma.
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? Those are the fundamentals of… Continue reading What if the Congressional Budget were handled more like the Thunderdrome?
I suspect as he moves farther West and South, Bernie will find it tougher to swing states his way. Something strikes me that the east and west coast states are most likely to see beyond the socialist label, but all the states in the middle would rather vote for a female than a socialist. We… Continue reading New Hampshire
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, polls had him down a… Continue reading Ah, Iowa.
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 Trump the Manilli Vanilli of… Continue reading Play that funky music white boy- Kareem on Trump
