Sure, its a Saturday, and the kiddos are down in Virginia visiting their grandmother, but this is our first significant snowfall of the season (we got a light snow on Christmas) so I'm excited! I don't think I could live someplace that didn't have four distinct seasons. Continue reading

I don't believe in gods or supernatural beings. I don't think there is a heaven or a hell. I do think this is the one life we have, and that whatever we can do to make that a better life for someone is worth doing simply for the act, and... Continue reading

Its necessary to comfort the comfortable by cutting their tax obligations, and as a result, add over a trillion dollars to the deficit, hence, we can no longer afford to comfort the poor, the sick, and the vulnerable. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday that congressional Republicans will... Continue reading

You know that, and I know that, and I suspect the politicians know that too, but they're more worried about maintaining that flow of dollars from their benefactors. We are a plutocracy.

Orrin Hatch. “[L]et me tell you something: we’re going to do CHIP. There’s no question about it in my mind. It’s got to be done the right way. But we, the reason CHIP’s having trouble is because we don’t have money anymore,” Hatch continued. “I believe in helping those who... Continue reading

Not that my personal situation should dictate national policy, but my quick back of the napkin calculations show me that initially the Senate plan costs me about 400 more a year in taxes, while the House plan shows about an 800 savings, $67.00 a month! WooHoo! Once I figure out... Continue reading

That's the only reason why Trump is going to call the families of the soldiers killed in Niger. I went to an exclusive private high school, and there were a few (thankfully not many) wealthy students there who essentially saw the military as "the help." The cared not a whit... Continue reading
