Hit the ROAD, Schieffer!

Sooooooo, the "legendary" Bob Schieffer is done with his "iconic" career.  I find it interesting that he leaves just as "Jurassic World" is about to premier.  Dinosaurs come, and dinosaurs go.  Somehow we'll all have to muddle through life, with one...

Does it REALLY Matter Who Our Next President is?

To answer the question of this post's title, yeah, it matters.  Sort of.  Kinda.  L'il bit.  But a LOT?  Depends on how you look at it.  A Republican president with a Republican Congress, actually COULD cut spending.  Will  it?  Let's just say I'll...

Improving Education.

Are our inner city schools bad?  I keep hearing how awful they are, and how so many young people graduate without much of an education.  It's only logical to assume that the schools are at fault.   I don't think so.  Not entirely, anyway.  ...

Think like a Judge or Juror, NOT a Lawyer.

Plenty of people claim distrust or even hatred of lawyers.  Why?  I don't know about others, but I think it's because so many, if effect, are hired, uh, arguers.  For a fee, they'll take your side, go into court, and do everything they can to defend...

Improving Critical Thinking.

I have to start writing down names of public officials who say stupid stuff, but come to think of it, at my age, do I need another physical problem -- like writer's cramp?  Anyway, about a week ago, some woman elected rep (D) said in response to the...

Baltimore, Gray, Racism, Liberalism, etc.

Let's see, here.  The schools of Baltimore suck.  The crime rate is pretty bad.  Gangs have a lot of power in the community.  And what gets the locals in a dither?  The somewhat suspicious death of an oft-arrested heroin dealer, who has served prison...

Punks Taking Over.

I am hearing of the "frustration" of those in the black community over the suspicious -- to put it mildly -- death of Freddy Gray.  Naturally, the libs have picked up on this, and the liberal narrative starts yet again: We understand you are...

America's Campus Powder Puffs.

On an episode of The Big Bang Theory, Leonard is having problems with his girl friend from India, so Sheldon has his mother talk to him on a video chat.  After spilling his guts and telling his mom, who is a famous psychologist or psychiatrist, his...

Hillary! You Got a Lotta Splainin' to do!

Sooooo, did Hillary use her position as Secretary of State to accept bribes for her and Billy's foundation?  NOOOOO! say her friends.  YESSSSSS say her not-so-much friends.  Personally, I'm not that concerned, because there's another issue that no one...

American Exceptionalism

I was informed by someone at work, yesterday, that America is NOT an exceptional country.  You know, this is a rather tricky issue -- America's exceptionalism, or lack thereof.  On the one hand, to say we are exceptional, implies a certain, well,...

Seeing Through Obama.

I couldn't help but laugh at O'Reilly the other day, when he pointed out that Obama HAD to have known about Bergdahl's desertion.  It's like he's SOOOO puzzled about why Obie did what he did, in that idiotic prisoner exchange: six terrorists for one...

Poker Cliques.

I haven't written much about my new poker job, and if past posts about poker are any indication, there will be NO response to this one.  But that's fine.  I will just be blowing off steam.   My return to the game, so to speak, has reminded me...

Hillary to Declare Candidacy on Sunday. Pray.

Is it really possible that Hillary Clinton could be the next president of the United States?  I understood Obama's election.  He did have this cult of personality thing going on.  Supposedly he made inspiring speeches, but being one that focuses on...

Socialism Doesn't Work.

   Last week I heard someone say, "Socialism WORKS!"   Really?  A lot of people believe it, and there was a time that maybe I would've given such a statement some credence.  But DOES it work?  I'll just say without hesitation, that socialism...

Again, WAY Long. Capitalism Rules, though.

I think it was in the fifth or sixth grade where I read something that you won't find in a textbook today: a defense of capitalism.  Anyway, it mentioned the difference between buying a refrigerator in America, as opposed to Russia.  In Russia, it...

Understand Where Obama is Coming From.

I have little to say about Ted Cruz's decision to run for pres, other than being a conservative is a MUST for me.  I also liked that he wants to do away with the IRS, and go to a flat tax.  I would PREFER he advocated a national sales tax because I...

Read Something Else. WAY too Long, haha.

Started my new poker dealing job about a week ago.  I'll go into more details at another time.  It's funny how even in a card room, politics is in the air, wafting with the cigarette smoke, aroma of beer, and bad beat profanity.  I'm getting misty...

Reinstate the Expelled SAE Students.

Two students in Oklahoma were expelled for their parts in a disgusting display of racism.  You're familiar with them singing and chanting very vile things.  It has been all over the news.  But should there have been expulsions?  Frankly, I don't think...

Obama and the Left, are Living in the 50's.

"We don't need the Ferguson report to know that's not true.  We just need to open our eyes, and ears, and hearts, to know that this nation's racial history still casts its long shadow upon us."  -- Victim-in-chief Barack Obama speaking at the 50th...

Hillary, Obama and the Injustice Department.

Have some things running through my head today, and since I won't have to start my new job until next Friday -- still have orientation on Tuesday -- I should jot them down before I get too busy.   I'm laughing SO hard at Hillary Clinton's...

Obama is TRYING to do us in!

Once again, people do not "get" Obama.  Earlier, O'Reilly went on this big thing about what Obama should do about Iran, the negotiations, etc.  He doesn't understand that our president is NOT on America's side ... EVER!  O'Reilly, and millions of...

Democrats are Afraid to Stand up to Obama.

Someone help me out.  Is it not true that Barack Obama can't run for president again?  Will he not be out the door in early 2017?  Is he also not very popular?  So why in the hoo-hah, are Democrats still SUPPORTING him?  Yeah, I know they have to show...

Back to Poker Dealing.

I rarely talk about my personal life, because it's pretty boring, but recently I had to replace an AC unit, and have some plumbing repairs done.  Not cheap, to say the least.  Anyway, to help pay for these major expenses, or I should say, RECOUP the...
