Like almost any American who was alive and old enough to realize what was going on, I remember exactly where I was when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I was sitting in a classroom when the principal came over the public address system to tell us the terrible news. Even as a young boy I […]

It’s the simplest and oldest military tactic in the world and it works. If you have 100 potential enemies and you can divide them into two separate groups, then pit them against each other, you can stand aside and allow them to duke it out, then sweep in and mop up the battered survivors who […]

I’ve been married three times, which is not something I’m proud of, but it took me a while to find a woman with the qualities I could truly love and admire who also had standards low enough to have anything to do with me. But it was worth it all to get to where I […]

There are a lot of things I don’t understand in life. Some of these mysteries, I just ignore, but others nag at me. How come it is acceptable for a group called African Americans For Obama to support the President, but if a group wanted to call itself White Americans For (insert your favorite candidate’s […]

If a U.S. Marine farts in the desert, can it be heard in the Halls of Montezuma, or on the shores of Tripoli? I sure hope not, because the natural act of passing gas has become a politically incorrect hot potato, so to speak. And don’t even ask me to visualize that comment! A few […]

Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama must be feeling a little bit of relief tonight. Depending on your politics, for now at least, neither one is the most hated woman in America. That much deserved title goes to Casey Anthony, the Florida woman (I won’t dignify her by calling her a mother) who was acquitted yesterday […]

So now both Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee have announced that they won’t be running for President in 2012, opening the field up to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and whoever wants to challenge him for the Republican nomination. The talking heads on TV are asking themselves if this will be the year Sarah Palin […]

My wife and I have not been getting along lately, and I’m really fed up. No matter what I say or do, she objects and wants to do just the opposite. The woman won’t listen to reason and refuses to see my point of view, no matter what the topic. A good example was our […]

I just don’t get it. We get the east and west coast network feeds, and yesterday evening every news broadcast had long, drawn out, stories about it being the 30th anniversary of the death of John Lennon, the former Beatle, who was murdered in New York City in 1980. They also had a lot of […]

I know that a lot of blog readers are huge supporters of Sarah Palin, and at the risk of offending some of them (again), I have to say that I just don’t get it. I’ve tried, but I still stand by my statement in a blog a month ago titled Choose Your Poison that to […]
