Thoughts of Stuff.

Thoughts about current and maybe not so current stuff:   I saw those kids on the spelling bee and did I ever feel stupid.  I only RECOGNIZED one word -- gemeinschaft -- let alone could spell one.  These kids were the geekiest young people you...

Far Leftist Angelou Dies. Can I SAY That?

I have never read a book by Maya Angelou.  The only poem of hers that I'm familiar with, was the one she read at Bill Clinton's inauguration.  Honestly, there are those on Thoughts that have done better.  Seriously, much better.  Maybe an off day for...

Honoring and Appreciating.

Weltschmertz.  This is a word I came upon, many years ago, while pouring through many a volume of intellectual stuff, in a dusty library, in an effort to improve my mind.  Ohhhh, OKAY!  I heard about it on "The Big Bang Theory."  Sue me.  It's a word...

Larry Grathwold and his Book, "Bringing Down America."

For the past few days, I've been "busy."  Busy playing poker online -- it's legal here in Nevada -- and reading "Bringing Down America," by the late Larry Grathwohl.  Oh, and also checking on some of the things in his book.     Anyone can write...

VA Scandal: Killing our Vets with Socialized Medicine.

Bill Cosby used to do this bit where he talked about how his wife was saying that the man determines the sex of the child, because he has this or that chromosome, blah, blah.  Cosby responds by saying, "BULL!  It's the person's fault, who had it...

Four Years on Thoughts! Warning: I'm Rambling Here.

A while back, I did some checking, and it seems that my first post on Thoughts, was on May 18, 2010.  So, today is my fourth year anniversary.  No big deal, I suppose.  Firsts, fifths, tenths, etc. are the ones everyone pays attention to, but still,...

White Privilege is Mostly a Myth.

Someone explain to me, how being a member of a relatively substantial majority, is a "privilege."  But that's what we're hearing, lately, with Harvard yakking about it, and an actual "White Privilege" conference going on.  Silly me, I thought...

Hollywood's Hypocrisy Toward Blacks.

"White privilege is mostly a myth," and I plan to write a post about it, entitled, uh, "White privilege is mostly a myth."  But there are exceptions, and Hollywood is a big one.  Yeah, there are black stars -- a heck of a lot more than there used to...

The NFL's Speech Police.

Anyway, earlier I mentioned that I thought that Michael Sam's kissing his boyfriend, was "yucky."  Not so much that he kissed the guy -- it was his house, for crying out loud -- but also because ESPN had to demonstrate how hip they are, by showing it....

Sam Drafted. Tolerance LIVES!

Michael Sam is gay, and made history by being the first openly gay player drafted.   One of the last players picked, he is regarded as a marginal NFL player.  He was defensive player of the year in the SEC, but his skills aren't considered NFL...

Obama's Five Biggest Lies.

Remember when Barack Obama was supposed to be a "new" type of president?  He'd "reach across the aisle," and work with both parties.  Women would faint in his presence.  Chris Matthews got tingly in his legs just listening to Barry.  Now, however, his...

Hollywood Freakout.

The government of Brunei owns the Beverly Hills Hotel.  The government of Brunei is going to adopt Sharia law in Brunei, which punishes adultery, homosexuality, and general debauchery -- i.e., the Hollywood lifestyle -- by death.  Death by stoning, I...

Republicans on ATTACK? Is this Possible.

Is it possible the Republicans are growing a spine?  Getting down to business on Benghazi, against the objections of the ruling party: the American media.  Also, doing the same with the IRS investigation?  Good!   Of course, this doesn't sit...

Remember REAL Jokes?

I was watching a documentary the other day, "When Jews were Funny," which featured interviews with many older Jewish comics: Shelley Berman, Jack Carter, the late David Brenner, and many others.  It also featured a few black and white clips of Alan...

Benghazi: Obama's Inconvenient Massacre.

I am constantly amazed at how people can miss the point.  Or refuse to acknowledge the point.  Or avoid the point.  Four dead people -- good people -- in Benghazi, and I don't even think most CONSERVATIVES get it.  Clueless on both sides, but...
