Stream Of Consciousness Weariness.

I’m tired. So tired. I have been a Republican all of my life, extant. I have seen presidents come and go. Some I liked and some I didn’t. I never, EVER, thought of any of them as being worth anything more than a smack down in an op-ed or, more recently, on “social” media. I didn’t

“Volunteers of America”

Admittedly, I know NOTHING of football. ANY football. I DO know some of the team names and some of the cities, but other than Boston, don’t ask me to identify them. Other than that I know that, Like most sports, there is an “offense” and a “defense”. Terms I recognize from >seven years wearing green

My Takeaway On The Younger Case.

When I was seven years old I wanted to be a vampire. Simple. I would be taken to Transylvania and sit in some secluded basement of a castle and bingo, I’d be a vampire. Maybe I was suffering “living dysphoria” and that my transition would make me whole. Or, I could have been watching too

“Common Sense” Infringement

The RIGHT to keep and bear arms is just that. A RIGHT. After all the years, (I’ll call it 50+, using 1968 as a start point), of “But…but…but…” IT IS STILL a RIGHT. It’s not a “suggestion” and it’s not a “privilege”. Any position or argument to the contrary, (again, after all of these years),

DIGNITY

I have to, on occasion, defend government stats I use on “social” media as stats.  Amazes me on the daily how when those stats are BAD, they’re stats.  when they’re good , they’re “opinion” or from a “biased” agency.  You know, like the Dept. of Commerce.  While I agree with the old saw, “lies, damned

A Corporation In The ‘Hood.

In MY, (NEVER), humble opinion…I have NOTHING against ANY person who, through their own intellect, effort, dedication and a little luck becomes a millionaire, billionaire or trillionaire. None. Whatsoever. Keeping in mind that, where millions go, scandal follows. Look, I don’t CARE who they may or may not have slept with, are sleeping with or

Making It “Better”?

I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. Speaking AS a person who has both drawn and shed blood for my country. When I see a row of battle-aged MEN trying to get into MY country, I’m told that they will make my country “better”. I am prone to ask why they don’t make THEIR

My Cloisters Lament

This is my famous “Cloisters Lament”.  I wrote it years ago but have been asked about it quite a bit, of late.  So here I am reading it for you.   https://www.bitchute.com/video/Ytcuen5WtqvN/ Oh, for some reason it doesn’t come up here the was it does in other places.  I guess you’ll have to click the link!

High School Boys.

I grew up in an area with a couple of Catholic schools, (that went to at least 8th grade), 5 public elementary schools, a public Jr., (7th &8th grades),  H.S. and a LARGE public H.S. Yes, the single largest “ethnicity” in town was people of Italian, (or at least Mediterranean*), heritage.  For the most part,
