“If a bird is birthed in a barn it is still a bird; not a horse!” — The Saker’s Mother
Born in the Halloween season of 1949 and eventually becoming old enough to conclude things, I reasoned: “A handful of right is more powerful than a handful of might.” I’ve lived accordingly and have employed some artful tricks to beat aging along the way.
Among them, I never got in a ‘duke-it-out’ fight with anyone — but I certainly helped break up a whole lot of ’em. Why do people behave like this?
Before I crossed the 50-Year-Old Bridge, I…

Never mind Donald Trump’s penchant to provide attention-getting play by play analysis to bloody wrestlers, boxers or UFC fighters, back in the day Trump not only chickened his way out of military service, he…
First, let’s not be like the major tobacco companies were in decades past when they tried to fool us into thinking that harms associated with smoking tobacco were minimal at worst. This has clearly been proven untrue!
Secondly, no law will stop people from smoking tobacco. If anything has proven this fact, it has been America’s pitiful, failing and wasteful War on Drugs which has done more harm than good.
I doubt our politicians in Washington are capable of adopting the overnight wisdom to begin treating drug problems medically instead of criminally. …
First of all, I’d like to say right-on and provide my deepest respect to the inventors, investors and marketers of things like the hula hoop, pet rock and Rubik’s Cube, etc. I believe great ideas should be rewarded, both financially and otherwise. I’m also a firm believer in cottage industry which America has largely zoned out of existence!
I also happen to think the small banks should be able to stay in business as small banks and be able to keep their original names. I very much appreciate family-owned hardware stores, pharmacies, gas stations and convenient stores throughout our communities.
Even when you don’t go anywhere or do anything it’s still possible to have a lousy day. Living on a seaside peninsular didn’t help much with today’s day. It’s been full of Hurricane Ida driblets. No wind, but phased in spits and dribbles of rain all of which helped to steal the sunshine.
The day began from last night after I took my heart medicine too late. What got me were the fluid-draining pills as they kept me up most of the night. Every time I almost fell asleep I had to get up again to drain fluid. …
America’s oligarchy has been around since inventions of the cotton gin, the railroad, model-T and space rockets. It even played a filthy role with slavery. New, improved and monster-like as ever, today’s modern oligarchy — America’s Oligarch Enrichment Project — has nurtured waves of political evil since JFK was shot.
This writing is mostly aimed at those who believe a government conspiracy is in play and meant to wreck a Covid-19 pandemic all over the world as a measure of population control. I guess, according to these proponents, Covid must be one of those extreme rare moments where the US, Russia and China team up to do everybody in.
It’s gotten to a point where we sincerely require Rocky and Bullwinkle to come to our world rescue.
Let’s be realistic. A young child can run a lemonade stand better than those three nations. Moreover, the US, Russia and China are…
