Arguing with liberals

As those of us who understand human nature, have studied history and follow world events know, the current liberal mindset is pretty darned clueless. They believe what they believe because they can’t accept a world that doesn’t bow to their disconnected-from-reality ideology. They haven’t studied socialism (they largely haven’t studied history at all), haven’t read […]

I signed up for Apple Care, our state’s health care exchange. Until  now I’ve paid for my health care out of pocket and that has worked wonderfully well for me. I’d like to continue to do that and have a high deductible policy that covered me in case of disaster but that’s not available to […]

Obama’s press secretary is on record saying Congress is afraid of the NRA.  Silliness.  It’s we’re the government and we’re here to help trying to sway public opinion and walk on our freedoms. It’s time we began recognizing and decrying this for what it is. It isn’t “control the masses”, though it could be. It […]

There was a time in human history when communities were rounded up, imprisoned, dissected, murdered, starved and harvested, and the surrounding population turned a blind eye.  This complicity was national and the debasement of a whole sect of people was rationalized because they were considered sub-human.  A nation bought into this abuse because it was […]

Apparently Bernie Sanders is advocating a free bachelor’s degree for all and someone on Laissez Faire Capitalism posted a mocking cartoon.  I took exception to Bernie Sanders’ socialistic thinking and posted this: This is so interesting. It speaks to a complete failure to understand economics and the mechanics of supply and demand. The question regarding […]

Something jerked my chain recently. In 2 months Terry and I will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. Throughout our marriage we’ve dealt with PTSD made worse by a dysfunctional childhood. I don’t tell you this to garner either celebration or sympathy but to tell you I know what I’m talking about. On Facebook, someone […]

On Facebook this morning was a post about a woman with brain cancer who got caught up in the whole Obamacare mess, lost her coverage and in the mess that ensued, died from lack of treatment.  There have been a number of things on Facebook lately that flipped my switch, this was just one.  Thus […]

Something I read this morning sparked a thought.  We know me.  That’s always dangerous and often amusing in a “can you believe it” way.  This morning’s fireworks sparkler can be attributed to an article by IowaHawk on Breitbart on same sex marriage.  First, it’s the kind of writing I love, expressing obvious common sense with humor […]

I just watch the most fascinating talk about how our tolerance for disgust determines our politics.  It’s one of those illuminating discussion, one that I will watch a number of times. This is the second really illuminating thing I’ve run into in the last two weeks.  I’m on a roll!

You never really know what you’re capable of until you face a crisis.  You never really understand that statement . . . until you face a crisis.  Been there. Enter my life altering event . . . my very best friend in the whole world had a massive stroke.  For four months I fussed over […]
