Dumb vs. Dumber, Which is the Smart Choice?

There is a debate going on, yet again, about the proper level of government involvement in health care, more specifically health insurance.  The false dichotomy being debated primarily consists of two camps, the “everyone needs health insurance” movement and the “I shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s insurance” group. But both groups have actually […]

The Concept of Duty and the Fallacy of Identity

A friend posted this on a social media site the other day and it provides the perfect opportunity to discuss a common fallacy that is occurring regularly these days in the media and online, as well as a concept that is used as a moral imperative to direct action and opinions about what is right […]

What does Russia, herpes and Donald Trump have in common?

I have to make some points that may be missed by folks as they get sucked into the Russia-Hacking-Helping-Trump-Victory conspiracy that is being pushed by the CIA. First and foremost, if there was a direct involvement, aka, hacking voting machines, how is it that Trump won even despite losing the popular vote? Let’s face it, […]

Stupid is as Stupid Does…

You really haven’t made it until you have people that write shit about you on the internet 🙂  This week (yesterday in fact) I was the lucky recipient of one person’s misguided ignorance!  Here is a link to the blog.  Take a minute to read over it, if you are not into the bible verses, […]

Who owes whom?

Dear Supporters of Sanders/Clinton, I seem to be hearing a specific theme coming from your ranks, and that theme is one of power to the people, or pro-worker communist sentiment.  I’ve been hearing that the burger flipper needs more money per hour, or that the Walmart employee deserves this wage or that wage and I […]

The Gay-K-K and My Right to Poop

The hypocrisy of the Liberals who denounced voting down of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance is interesting to say the least. You might be asking yourself “what hypocrisy?” Well the hypocrisy is in the fact that every week we see a new story about how some specific minority group needs to be protected from being […]

Something to consider on this Memorial Day Weekend…

You have likely seen this before, but for those that may be too young to have heard of it.  Please share it. THE FINAL TOAST ! They once were among the most universally admired and revered men in the United States .. There were 80 of the Raiders in April 1942, when they carried out […]

They openly admit they are tracking you….

I’m a privacy advocate.  I believe that unless I explicitly make the decision to share my information, my name, my age, my income level, my shoe size, my likes, my dislikes, my fears, hopes, fantasies, or any other information, you have no right to go behind my back to collect it.  Moreover, I believe that […]

You can’t have your cake and eat it too

America, land of opportunity, land of the free, where anyone can start at the bottom and with hard work and a bit of luck, they can make it to the top, just like Barack Obama…  Maybe not.  There is a stark difference between the marketing propaganda we have grown up regurgitating and what the reality […]

We Have a Problem America

When subordinates at work cannot even recognize that someone is on the phone, in the middle of a conversation and working yet they persist in trying to grab your attention for something they should obviously be able to deal with, we are screwed. Our workforce is pathetic. I keep hearing about this great American spirit, […]
