That Basket of Deplorables Is the New Face of US Terrorism (Updated)

I’m late to learning the details of what has transpired from the Nazi and White Supremacist terrorist attacks that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.  I refuse to use the term “Alt-Right.” These are militant, white, Nazi terrorists that want to usher in to this country an ethnic cleansing. Their hatred and terrorism are without doubt fueled by Donald Trump, whose… Continue reading

Keep It on the Milk Carton!

Subtitle: Am I just that much of a jerk in my old age? Californians got a startling late-night introduction to a statewide emergency alert system when their cell phones began buzzing, blaring and flashing with the news that San Diego County siblings had been kidnapped. For many, it was the first time they knew about an all-but-hidden feature on their… Continue reading

THE Hat

It shocked the world! Yes, I wanted one for a Halloween costume this year, but, alas, Halloween was not meant to be because of the move. I wonder if anyone else had the idea?! Sadly, I can only find one home rendition of the astounding head dress. The best “take off” of the towering head ware (mixing the somber with… Continue reading

For the Bible Tells Me So

The Pew Research Center conducted a poll to determine the issues on which evangelical leaders agree and disagree: The Bible is the Word of God.  (98% agreed) Christianity is the one, true faith leading to eternal life.  (96% agreed) Abortion is usually or always wrong.  (96% agreed) Society should discourage homosexuality.  (84% agreed) Men have a duty to serve as… Continue reading

Reflections on the Assassination

I have deliberately waited to post about the assassination of Osama bin Laden. As with everyone, I have many thoughts on this matter — some of them conflicting. First, I have no grief for the man. He was maniacal. His life energy focused on the destruction of a people, a way of life. He is an example of the ultimate… Continue reading

Scrub-a-dub-dub

So, it’s finally happened.  The irresponsible, the calculated, the inexcusable rhetoric of extremists in politics and so-called journalism has reached the tipping point and created an incident of domestic terrorism.  Now Sarah Palin, whose name I had sworn I would never print on this blog again, is busy “scrubbing” her blog of these images and her hit list. I doubt… Continue reading

Al Gore Speaks Today

…The President and I agree on one thing. The threat from terrorism is all too real. There is simply no question that we continue to face new challenges in the wake of the attack on September 11th and that we must be ever-vigilant in protecting our citizens from harm. Where we disagree is that we have to break the law… Continue reading

Once Again!

Simply incredulous! The Bush administration is seeking to obtain the authority to delay the November election because of possible terrorist threats. No specifics are given, well, they never are–just words like bad, massive, etc. His administration loves colors too: red, orange! Reminds me of Pavlov’s dogs and bells. Show the color and the nation is supposed to salivate for the… Continue reading

This from Andrew Tobias…

Hmmm, this one caught my eye: Look for Osama to be produced during the democratic convention*. (And about time, too!) * WASHINGTON, July 8 – Osama bin Laden and his chief lieutenants, operating from hideouts suspected to be along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, are directing an al-Qaeda effort to launch an attack in the United States sometime this year, senior Bush… Continue reading
