No, this isn’t another “me too” story. It’s an OMG, I’m so over the nonsense that is called news media! Unless it’s something that is breaking, like someone attempting to ram the security perimeter at NSA’s headquarters in Maryland or another, horrible school shooting, every single channel is filled with nothing but a lot of … Continue reading I’ve Been Quiet for Too Long
It’s amazing how quickly we sink into our defensive positions even after overcoming such difficult circumstances. These very powerful hurricanes which dealt us as a nation a one-two punch in both Texas and Florida brought out the true human side of us. It was mostly an eerily beautiful thing to witness, but it wasn’t without … Continue reading Back to Your Corners! Or Not…
Can’t remember the last time I saw a gaggle of reporters and news outlets overreact to a video. Wait, now that I think about it, they tend to overreact about a lot of things. There’s a missing plane! Let’s break out the super graphics and run with it non-stop until the ratings decline. A terrorist … Continue reading Follow the Money, Silly!

Hmmm, I found it funny that this “comedian” thought the whole episode was hysterical when said “comedian” did the video shoot. Yes, it was … Continue reading A Story I Heard About, Hysterical
It’s not the idea that we’re living in a post-factual period but more that we have been repeatedly lied to by our elected officials and the media, that the trust has been eroded. Continue reading...
We can all agree that this election cycle was nasty and just devoid of honesty, so maybe that explains some of the behaviors we are witnessing. I have heard how one candidate was such a compulsive liar while the other one was a saint. One used some server in a basement with classified information on … Continue reading No Shortage of Hypocrisy
Tuesday, we will know who the next president will be (fingers crossed). As Americans, neighbors, friends, family and strangers it is our collective responsibility to not gloat (we've seen that before).
