How To Kill For Money

June 3, 2014

[Y]es. You too can become a mass murderer. Some self-chosen few are even making obscene amounts of money doing it. How many people is it possible to kill? Why stop at people? Yes. You can help exterminate the entire human race. We can even throw in several thousands of species of fauna. How about even […]

Hormones a la mode

April 12, 2014

[A]fter gaining more than 90 pounds on a diet following the guidelines of the American Heart Association and the United States Department of Agriculture it was obvious that either they were in the pockets of the food industry or were totally ignorant of the subject. I’m inclined to think it is a combination of both. […]

Brain Freeze

January 11, 2014

[O]kay. So it’s cold outside; even here where the sun shines bright and the moonshine’s delicious. That must mean that global warming is a liberal lie. Once again we have a case of the pot calling the snowflake black. Rush and the inmates at Fox aren’t exactly laughing their asses off. Were that so we […]

No Love Lost

February 20, 2012

[I]t’s true. If you mix religion and politics, you get politics. Perhaps it was only a coincidence. Perhaps it was the recent emergence of that voice of the 12th Century, Rick Santorum. Whatever is was, something spurred the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to declare war on the administration. Perhaps it was coordinated. Perhaps not. […]

Too Big To Care

November 1, 2011

Do you know which company is the world’s largest health care corporation? Care to guess? Aw, go on. You know the answer. Time’s up. It’s Johnson & Johnson, with a logo that often includes the words, Family of Companies. Oh, doesn’t that make them sound so cozy? Maybe they should ‘incorporate’ a teddy bear with […]

Super Lies

October 31, 2011

Being born above my dad’s grocery store and being immersed in the grocery business, Summers and weekends, for many years, I thought I knew a few of its tricks. I’m now finding out how little I knew. Admittedly, I have not had much recent connection with the industry, as my father retired about 25 years […]

Eat It

June 8, 2011

You voted for your senator. You voted for your house member. You gave them the most important gift you can – your vote. They show their appreciation. They screw you. Food is fairly important to most people. I try to use some of it every day – perhaps even a bit more frequently than that. […]

Medi-cure

March 30, 2011

Medicare is wonderful. Medicare is terrible. Medicare is in trouble. Medicare is wonderful. Medicare is also complex. People are always suggesting changes. Some wish to extend it. Some wish to eliminate it. People are running around predicting bankruptcy for Medicare around 2017 or 2019 or whenever. No, it’s not that bad. There would be a […]

Not Soy Good

December 11, 2010

Have you ever dieted? Have you ever tried? Age has brought on a decrease in my metabolism. Some of the medications I take have caused a further decrease. These and other factors have contributed to undesired weight gain. I blame my success at quitting smoking for adding to my problem. I frequently think I might […]

Disposable

September 27, 2010

All of the attention is on the Republican Pledge. Its 21 pages are supposed to tell voters what they promise. Not really. It’s simply a distraction. They deceived the people with the Contract in 1994. The Pledge is supposed to do the same in 2010. They will not accomplish any of the things they promise. […]
