Humorist Will Rogers once said, "I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts." If he lived in these modern times, old Will wouldn’t even have had to watch the government to get plenty of material. All he would need to do was log onto the internet. I’m not sure which […]

For the record, I don’t support Obama or Romney, the Democrats or the Republicans, the Liberals or the Conservatives. I prefer to do my own thinking and make my own choices.

When I posted a link on Facebook yesterday about an uproar caused when  the Lowes home improvement store chain pulled its advertising from a TLC program about Muslims in America, it caused an uproar of its own.

If you turn a television on during the daytime, or watch any late night TV, you know how often viewers are bombarded with advertisement after advertisement telling them that if they have used just about any kind of prescription drug, fallen off a ladder, been in an accident, or ever had a hangnail, they can […]

What can I say? Just open any newspaper, they’re everywhere! Police in Daytona Beach, Florida report that Melanese Asia Reid became upset with the service at a Wendy’s drive-thru lane, so she and friend Katrina Mari-Alyce Bryant went into the restaurant, where Reid, with a pink stun gun in her hand, chased an employee.

Have you received an e-mail with the following message, or seen it posted on Facebook? Dear Lord, this year you took my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze. You took my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett. You took my favorite singer, Michael Jackson. I just wanted to let you know, my favorite president is Barack Obama.   If […]
