Accepting America

October 18, 2016

merica is in jeopardy. I survived the 8 years of a total incompetent W and his personal Rasputin. I considered becoming an expatriate but, though I had traveled the world for nearly 20 years, America is my home. Things have changed. We again have a total incompetent running for the presidency but this one is […]

Oh What A Tangled Web

November 15, 2014

  was sitting on a Delta flight out of Atlanta with Governor Jimmy Carter and Jody Powell. It was January 1976, two weeks before the Iowa caucuses. Jody briefly explained Ham Jordan’s campaign strategy. It was masterful. I saw the future. Governor Carter would be President Carter. I jumped aboard the bandwagon. The Governor asked […]

What You Did

July 28, 2014

ust when you think the Supreme Court of Wall Street has set the conservative ideology bar as low as it can go, they return for an encore. While the rabid fundamentalist Christians are celebrating their victory over their black nemesis, Obama, they unwittingly handed their bogeyman a Christmas whoops . . . Happy Holidays present […]

Fake Ducks

December 23, 2013

f it quacks like Duck Dynasty, it must be hypocrisy. “Reality shows” are as realistic as Michael Jackson’s face was or Fox “News” is. That doesn’t diminish the devotion of their audiences of Americans that refuse to think. In fact, that’s the appeal.

No Love Lost

February 20, 2012

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. […]

I’m Special

November 1, 2010

The guy(s) who cut you off on the freeway this morning; the student who filmed his roommate’s private encounter; […]

How Not To Be A Journalist

August 26, 2009

Edward R. Murrow was a role model for me, as well as many others. Sadly, he is no longer a figure of significance to what is now called journalism. The following highlights just how far journalism has fallen. The impetus for this post are the antics of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the recently released […]

Bury Reagan

December 15, 2008

Many will consider this post sacrilegious. They are merely the deluded, the Kool-Aid drinkers. Reaganism has become a religion. Let me be the bearer of bad news. Reagan is dead. Every Republican candidate for president in the recent campaign tried to outdo his rivals in their claims to the mantle of St. Ronny. Now congressmen […]

What Hath God Wrought?

October 27, 2008

Perhaps I should begin with an apology to Samuel Morse for using his famous quotation as the title of this post. I really can’t blame God for the yo-yo to the left. All of my copies of the Bible contain a short, simple, easily understood statement. It can be found at 1 John 4:8. it […]

Creationists vs. Creationism

July 8, 2008

I don’t know why I’m writing on this subject. After all, I am somewhat cowardly. This post will likely put me in jeopardy. Too many Christians are all too ready and willing to demonstrate that “God is love.” I sometimes wonder if those most loudly proclaiming their Christianity have ever actually read the Bible.
