Calm Down, America: Trump Knows What He’s Doing

Since President Trump announced his latest offer to the Democrats to end the Federal Government shutdown and get financing for the wall, social media has been exploding in a mass of chest thumping, screaming in anger, hair pulling, and nasty comments toward him….. And that’s from his supporters. People, people! Take it down a notch..

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.

From SNAP to USDA “Boxes”?

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.
