So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”[…

Obama Inaguration Speech



If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith…

All this chatter and posturing over guns has me wondering how many of the chatterers have actually experienced a real live campus lockdown. Not a drill, but an actual credible threat-induced campus lockdown.

The week before Christmas break, my campus had a lockdown involving multiple credible threats. It wasn’t my first, but it was the most legitimate.

It started during the always-chaotic lunch period. Our campus has four thirty-minute lunch periods, A – D. Somewhere during the…

Anti-gay Paris?

“So, I guess you weren’t at the protest this weekend,” my mother says over the phone.  “I couldn’t believe it,” she goes on.  “One of the people I work with told me there was a big protest march against gay marriage in Paris, and I thought, Paris, France?  The French are some of the most liberal people in the world!”

This is an issue that I’ve meant to write about for a long time.  But it just gets me too frustrated.  Hearing my mother’s questions, though,…

Sun rise - Cold Morning in January

I need to write, just the usual crap, like I did way back when, the night time hours, after work, 3 in the morning, just writing for the sake of writing, the sake of people reading it and going, WHA?

I got to admit, I've been angry, depressed, sad, back to angry, then well,right now, Mexican…

Beware the Rant... Trying to Bring Some Perspective to the American Politics of Fiscal Cliffs

This post is inspired by Koshersalami's A Rant.  I pissed away the better part of two hours researching and writing my comment so I thought what the hell, if publishing a comment to a post as a post is good enough for Kosh, it's good…

Adam Lanza's motives (continued)

What we know now is the picture of Adam Lanza & his life at home are coming into focus.  As I wrote about in my earlier post Lanza fits the profile of a parricidal young man.  And his home seems also to fit.  Here's more of what is being uncovered:

Adam was a self-mutilator.

Adam weighed 120lbs or so @ around 6ft tall he was either anorectic or at the very least body dysmorphic.

Adam shot several cars before he went into the school.

 Adam may have targeted…

2012: Eastwood, Armstrong, Zimmerman, & Fiscal Cliff

Happy New Year Everybody!

2013 is starting out a lot like 2012...there are a lot of things

that could have happened that didn't...should not have happened but did!

Some of these things were obvious...some were not!

I was glad to see that President Obama could finally be the Last Man

Standing  while Clint Eastwood should have just sat down. It was a

shame that George Zimmerman chose to Stand his ground, but it was

also a relief to see…

My Christmas wishes and a Happy New Year !!

I am not a blogger I am just a guy who appreciates others thoughts and reading Blogs is a way of knowing and commenting on them. So please understand if I comment in any way you may feel negatively on your post, know it is just my thought at the time of reading it and I may change my mind so please don't take it as a personal attack.

Also I'll never claim to be very good at spelling or grammar and being as this site is new to me I also am not familiar with any possible help it may or…

FISA FAIL: Anyone mind government can STILL spy on & arrest us?

  • When Clint Eastwood stood on stage at the Republican National Convention and spoke to "the chair" about a Vision for America...I didn't know the chair had about as many Constitutional Rights as we do.

In the name of 9/11, if we are suspected of being a potential…

Bold Predictions - 2013

For three years I have been making annual predictions. Some have been accurate, some not so accurate. At times I have had what some my call "vision", an ability to look down the road and see what's happening. I think the next 12 months will be interesting.

As in the ancient Chinese curse, "May you lead an interesting life."

Here's what I see happening in 2013:

I am extremely pessimistic that there will be any changes in gun laws. A ban on assault weapons will not pass in…

How I did on my 2012 predictions or close but no cigar

I thought I would look back at by bold predictions made in December of 2011. Even a broken clock is correct twice a day. I don’t think I am much better than a broken clock.

So here were my picks for the 2012. May you be entertained by the pure audacity and idiocy of them:


Open Salon will establish a pay wall.

Well that didn’t really happen, did it?


The GOP Presidential nominee will be Newt…

Fiscal Cliff??

The anti tax conservatives seem to hail from the same demographic that may have less money overall but won't be visiting any soup kitchens or homeless shelters from it. Why are republicans so concerned about handouts to poor people when the vast amounts spent to ease the businesses need for transportation, electrical service, water, ad infinitum are sacrosanct? Corporate users get rates on utilities that are not available to the general public. The individual is expected to subsidize…

Rockets Red Glare

Rockets Red Glare

It would seem we are a nation stumbling from tragedy to bloody tragedy; we are a nation of hurts. How can these things keep happening like this? Some of us shout about gun control, while others argue for more mental health treatment.…

A Quiet Prayer before the End of the World

Does it all end tonight at mid-night or do we get like a grace period all day Friday? What about Saturday? Surely we will still have Sunday. God wouldn’t let it happen before Christmas and the Holidays, would he/she? Will it be quick like a meteor striking the earth or an alien invasion, or drawn-out with a bunch of mini disasters?

I remember very clearly, walking out of a theater in 1969 at the ripe age of 20 with my girlfriend at the time, pondering the year “2001.” I’ll be 52 then…

Wisdoms and thoughts: Death sucks

I just wanted to say thank you all from my heart, your words in this time of greatest grief means beyond what I can say.

I already am lost without my rock, my teddy bear, but I know she is still around, in spirit, which is nice but not the same, very hard to hug a spirit!!!

I have learned the greatest life lesson of all, life is too short, love those around you for all you got, hug them every day, tell them that you love them every day, and cherish them forever.

Life is…

The Gun Belt

By Daniel Rigney

If you live in one of the gun states (those with high rates of gun ownership per capita), you’re probably living in North America’s red belt, a geopolitical formation in the shape of a long-barreled six-shooter aiming toward the sky, its barrel descending from the muzzle of Alaska through Canada’s conservative…
