Do you suffer fools quietly, or do you speak up when something is wrong? Some might say that I take offense too easily, but my tolerance level for nonsense is very low, and when I am the customer, it’s even lower. I work very hard for my money, and when I spend it, I want […]

I’m sure attorneys serve a useful purpose, but I’m not sure it’s actually legal to throw them under your tires for traction when you’re stuck in a Michigan snow storm, so we’ll probably never know. Can you imagine what it must be like to be the parent who helped put a kid through college and […]

The news is full of reports of outrage by travelers who are being subjected to pat downs  by TSA personnel that many are calling intrusive, insensitive, and even obscene. Some of the things I am hearing are completely disgusting, including a 61 year old bladder cancer survivor who said the pat down he received was […]

Laser skin rejuvenation, wrinkle reducers, human growth hormone injections, facelifts, eyelifts, tummy tucks, cleansing diets, collagen pills – give me a break! Since the very first snake oil salesman rattled into the very first village with some concoction that promised to make gullible people look and feel younger, millions, even billions, of dollars have changed […]

For reasons I never understood, my maternal grandmother never seemed to like me. As a child, I remember her giving cookies and milk to my sister and cousin during a visit to her home, and telling me “If I give you something, you’ll make a mess.” I don’t know, maybe she knew what a klutz […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Dumb A$$ Report, but there is never any shortage of material, so here we go with another rousing round of sheer stupidity. The first dumb a$$ I want to tell you about is a lady I saw in a WalMart in Clermont, Florida a few days ago. […]

I’m sorry for the title of this blog, but there’s no other way to say it. I’m pissed! Television station KSBW in Salinas, California reports that the pinheads that run Denair Middle School, in Stanislaus County, ordered a thirteen year old student to remove an American flag from his bicycle on Veterans Day. The news […]

In the wake of their sound thrashing in the mid-term elections last week, many Democrats seem to be getting the idea that people do want change, even if it’s not the change that President Obama promised when he was on the campaign trail. Some, but not all, Democrats seem to be listening, at least a […]

It seems like every week or two, some new internet myth makes the rounds, and I get swamped with forwarded e-mails from readers who want me to be aware of the latest threat to life as we know it. Not to mention the same old crap that gets recycled over and over again, because somebody […]

Tuesday the American people sent a clear message to their elected officials that they are unhappy with the way things are going, and they don’t want to go down the road we have been taking. Now, it is up to those newly elected, and to those who retained their offices, to listen to that message. […]
