Coming to America

coming to America

These days it might seem as if living in jeopardy is just a fact of life but danger is nothing new. People have lived in jeopardy since the beginnings of human life and, around the world, many continue to live in mortal terror of losing all they love, all they have acquired, all they have achieved.



Ammunition Notes

News today focused on National Security. However, security should begin at home. With the ongoing turmoil in the Trump White House, it is easy to lose sight of many of the issues that remain unattended. One of those issues is comprehensive gun legislation, which would be a major step in improving the safety of the American public.



The Ungapatchka Elephant

Yiddish has a better word for ostentatious. It's "ungapatchka." As defined by the Urban Dictionary, it means overly ornate, busy, ridiculously over-decorated, and garnished to the point of distaste. Ungapatchka fits the white elephant that will soon be occupying the Oval Office to a "T". The point of distaste is clearly met by Trump's fear mongering through his vile plans for America.


Boxing Day

Sometimes it takes a while to get back into routine after the holidays. I totally forgot a very important holiday that falls between Christmas and New Year's.


Extreme Vetting: Who Vets the Vetters?

Donald Trump talks about "extreme vetting" of immigrants. It is peculiar that he is running for the highest office in American and nobody thought to "vet" Donald Trump or any other candidate up-ballot or down-ballot.


Grass Roots Gun Sense

too much going on in this world for us to hibernate

As the House Democrats held the floor of the House of Representatives during the sit-in for common sense gun legislation, I remembered the old slogan, "Power to the people." Until the sit-in, it seemed Americans were powerless to do anything about gun violence in this country. The sit-in gave us hope.



Gun Sense: We Need It

We need to send the right guy

The second amendment doesn't need appealing. We are hunter gatherers that need to hunt up and gather some gun sense.The second amendment needs to be revised and put into specific terms.

Freedom from Religion:
The Light at the End of the Tunnel

light at the end of the tunnel

Atheism isn't a choice. It's a realization and once I fully understood that realization, my lack of belief became a cause for celebration. Atheists are often portrayed as doubting, unhappy people, but actually losing religion is a joyous thing, the real light at the end of the tunnel.

Transgender Toilets: Pumping Out the Septic

This latest round of who can and cannot use the bathroom is the most absurd notion that state governments have raised to date. Aside from wasting taxpayer dollars on unnecessary legislation, these laws are a danger to public safety.



Republican Anarchy

It's about time that Congress quit playing around with our government and got to work. I was shocked to learn that their latest, greatest, idea is to privatize the FAA. As if that was an urgent issue.
