A Political New Year’s Wish List for 2017

   Instead of whining over the election results, let American’s gather together behind our new President, Donald Trump, and wish him well in his endeavors to bring Peace and Prosperity to America for the next four years. Like him or not; he is our duly elected President and he is not going anywhere.  Protests and marches are only divisive at this point.  You cannot impeach an individual for winning an election!   Let our New President and Congress bring our troops home safely from ov...

Beware: BROCK TURNER On The Loose!

Brock Turner was released eight days ago on September 2, 2016.  The case is old now but is still sticking in everyone’s craw.   Brock served his minimal sentence, graciously gifted to him by Judge Persky, a hypocrite in a position of power.  A privileged Stanford student received a “relatively light sentence” for a heinous act.  The public was outraged and rightfully so.   There are blog sights and petitions surfacing all over the internet calling for Judge Aaron Persky’s head on a silver p...

LIVING IN AN ALTERNATE REALITY

  There are many days that I believe that I live in an alternate reality to the rest of the people on this planet.  I desperately attempt to embrace truth where it seems like so many individuals in the world are running to escape from it.    Several weeks ago, the NY Times ran a front page article on a South Dakota issue regarding a pending bill to restrict transgender children from using boys or girls bathrooms, i.e. schools would have to provide separate accommodations.   (The b...

THE MYTHS OF SENIOR DRIVING

There have been numerous articles written about senior driving, however most of them have one thing in common --  the overzealous desire to ensure that the independence of the senior citizen is preserved at any price. Many of these articles favor preserving the rights of seniors who may be compromised in their ability to drive.  They are written by extremely caring geriatric care managers with degrees in social service, writing from their heart, but not necessarily weighing the risks involve...

THE NYC HOMELESS PROBLEM- WHAT IS THE REMEDY?

As Bill de Blasio continues to dismantle the NYC education system, to escalate his power struggle with Gov. Cuomo, and promote his relationship with Al Sharpton, it is not difficult to establish that de Blasio is not the sharpest tack in the box.  The truth is that if an astute individual were to become Mayor of New York City and evaluate de Blasio’s performance over the past year, de Blasio would be hard pressed to elicit an appointment as dogcatcher. Currently, Bill has been all over th...

Fantastic Four 2015 – Anything but “Marvel”ous

      (Photo: businessinsiders.com) ====================== Over the years, as Hollywood has aged and creativity has faded, there has been a spate of remakes of old movies.   There is an innate danger in any remake, the obvious comparison to the original.  By and large, very few remakes have been touted as major successes.   The first remake that always pops into my head is King Kong, which has been remade several times.   The original, starring Faye Wray, is ...

YELLOW JOURNALISM / HOW DAVID DALEIDEN MANAGED TO DUPE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC

Winston and his friends were whispering their ideas privately while the “thought police” tuned in. The year was 1984, but in a split second, a fourth dimensional wormhole brought us to the year 2015. Big Brother was everywhere. There was no more secrecy, no more privacy. Wikileaks was a heroic enterprise, celebrated by all the ultra-liberals who screamed “transparency”, not understanding that they were giving up everything that they considered sacred. And George Orwell was looking down from ...
