Abortion Insurance

These days it seems that when you get a group of legislators together, they get things backwards. Kind of reminds me of the Contrare Indian in Little Big Man who washed with sand and dried with water.



The Right Thing

shnauzer love

As I walked our Airedale Terrier, Bailey, I especially enjoyed watching my neighbor walk her Miniature Schnauzer. I've missed seeing them lately. Although her dog was 14 years old and blind, he still had the Schnauzer independence.

Every year on Veterans Day thousands of Americans gather to pay tribute to their local veterans, past and present. In our small town, I remember the solemn cadence of a single drum that led us to the local cemetary where we honored our fallen.

Facebook has promoted itself as a place where I can meet and keep in touch with friends, both near and far away. There are some things they could do to make it easier.

Right now #SavetheACA is trending on Twitter. I don't think it's going to happen no matter what American citizens want. The House of Representatives, seems to be caught up in some nostalgic, delusional version of "Father Knows Best" with speaker Paul Ryan at the head of the table, making a mess of the turkey that is the ACA.
