It Was the Best of Times. It Was the Worst of Times. It Was Starting To Look Better……..

It is with a very heavy heart that I sit at my computer this morning. Over the past couple of weeks, the negative news has been relentless. The following are just some errant ramblings on a number of topics/issues. I know I speak for many – if not most – when I say that weContinue reading “It Was the Best of Times.

America’s National Temper Tantrum: Police Reform or Parenting Reform?

For the past 4 weeks, America has been dealing with what can easily be described as a national temper tantrum. Thugs of all races, religions, genders and sexual orientations are destroying businesses, destroying cities, destroying lives and attempting to erase our history. In at least one case, they’ve even taken over a portion of aContinue reading “America’s National Temper Tantrum: Police Reform or Parenting Reform?”

Tearing Down Statues, Toppling a Country.

Confederate flags should fly and statues of Confederate soldiers should stand. Why? These things serve to teach future generations about our history, to show that while we’re not perfect, that – while we’ve made mistakes – we also learned from them and corrected them, proving that this is indeed a noble nation who always strivesContinue reading “Tearing Down Statues, Toppling a Country.”

Bowing, Kneeling, Surrendering Our Country

As the 2020 presidential election nears, the fundamental transformation of the country that Barack Obama promised us is now happening at breakneck speed. There are no longer such things as “gradualism” or the proverbial “death by a thousand cuts”. We are witnessing it in real time. In the aftermath of the George Floyd case, thereContinue reading “Bowing, Kneeling, Surrendering Our Country”

I’ve Been Thinking. This Week’s Random Riot Ramblings.

As I watch the national insurrection aimed at fundamentally-transforming the country under the guise of giving a damn about George Floyd, I have committed to memory the hypocrisy, the gaslighting, the flat out lying by Democrat leaders as well as our corrupt, defunct Fourth Estate. These are just off the top of my head, soContinue reading “I’ve Been Thinking. This Week’s Random Riot Ramblings.”

Taking a Knee. Defunding Police. Never Letting a Crisis Go to Waste.

Within the past couple of days, we have learned that ANTIFA has been planning their insurrection since last November, hoping to begin their siege during this election year for the sole purpose of destroying Donald Trump, who stands in the way of their nihilism and depravity, their goal of changing the United States into aContinue reading “Taking a Knee. Defunding Police. Never Letting a Crisis Go to Waste.”

Black Lives Matter. Big Lies Matter.

If you don’t know the name Candace Owens, you should. She is a young, black, conservative commentator and political activist, wise and articulate beyond her years. As a black female, you’d expect the tolerant, diverse, woke left to embrace her, but you’d be wrong. You see, Ms. Owens doesn’t “stay on the plantation” or adhereContinue reading “Black Lives Matter. Big Lies Matter.”

From Flattening the Curve to Leveling Cities. Different Crises, Same Goal.

Like millions of Americans I’ve watched in total horror and disbelief the pictures of our country being torn apart by America-haters who are, frankly, in most cases, the most-spoiled, most-protected, most-fortunate generation of Americans who has ever lived. This is a generation who has been afforded more opportunities than their parents or grandparents ever had,Continue reading “From Flattening the Curve to Leveling Cities. Different Crises, Same Goal.”

A World On Fire. A Window Into the Past. A Window Into the Future.

The Fabian Window is a stained-glass window which depicts the Socialist founders of the Fabian Society. It was designed by playwright, political activist and Fabian Socialist George Bernard Shaw in 1910 as a commemoration of the Fabian Society. It hangs at the Shaw Library at the London School of Economics. The window shows fellow SocietyContinue reading “A World On Fire. A Window Into the Past. A Window Into the Future.”

A Life Extinguished. A City Ablaze. Better Living Through a Big Screen TV.

As events continue to unfold in Minneapolis, I can hear the collective sighs of “we’ve seen this movie before” and “here we go again”. We’ve all watched in shock, horror and disbelief the video of now-fired officer Derek Chauvin with his knee on the neck of George Floyd, a recently unemployed restaurant worker who wasContinue reading “A Life Extinguished. A City Ablaze. Better Living Through a Big Screen TV.”
