A Compassionate Fight

We are a compassionate people. I am a compassionate person. At least I’d like to think so. But we all have limits, don’t we? From the number of times you’ll get a toothache before going to a dentist, the time we’ll spend on hold or the number of times a kid says “mom! mom! mom!”

MY Take On This Day, (or two).

On this day, (The anniversary of the day Billy Joe McAlester jumped off the Tallahatchie bridge), I had JUST sat down. Hadn’t even scrolled yet. Saw a “synopsis” that I want to find the video for, but hadn’t yet. Congressman Kelley, (R-PA), represents the district around Pittsburgh. WHAT happens here is, (just like all of

An Open Letter to the LEFT…

Seriously? Do you HONESTLY believe you’re “convincing” anyone that your arguments have ANY merit….AT ALL? Do you really, truly believe that your tactics are doing you any good? Let me clue you in on a secret. It’s not helping. Or, to be more accurate, it IS helping. The RIGHT. Yes, that’s right, the RIGHT. The

A VERY Personal Experience.

There’s an experience I had. A very bad experience. I tell about this every once in a while, but never written down to this point of detail. I hope the retelling moves you the way the experience itself moved me; or at least provides you with insight to why THIS particular grumpy old goat is

Great GOP Ghost!

A play on the explaint of Perry White, (the editor of “The Daily Planet” of Superman fame), of “Great Caesar’s Ghost!” Remember, friends, how I published my requiem for the GOP in advance of Barack Obama’s first election. I was convinced, (and have never let go of the thought), that the Republican Party, (as we

Mille Masqueras

Many Moons ago, when I was a kid, (ALL “old goats” start out as KIDS, after all), I watched wrestling on channel 9, WOR. ALL the greats! Bruno Sammartino. Gorilla Monsoon. Pedro Morales, MILLE MASQUERAS. MM was a part of the “Lucha Libre” school of wrestling out of Mexico. Masks were and are still commonplace

Kool Aid! IV! STAT!

It’s one thing to “drink the Kool-aid”, it’s another to push it I.V. I get taken to task, (often), for being a “ONLY FOX” kind of guy. If you’ve followed me, (attentively), for more than a day or two you’ll note that stories from Fox make up <10% of my posts. I've made posts from

SLOW DOWN! I Can’t!

This one is far too important for me to copy, paste, edit, etc in a document format, (or two). I NEED to get this OUT THERE. NOW. Pardon my “sp” and “gr” errata, please! I am already hearing from many quarters that families and friends are throwing hope, faith and charity out the window, along

Bind Our Wounds.

The intensity of last night has drained me deeply. I’ve been “up & around” for a couple of hours, but I’ve been writing two different essays for Political-qrm and Minds, to which this is only a prelude. I will be recording a post election podcast w/ cugina Ann Marie at some time today, which will
