We’re Doing This All Wrong

We’re doing this all wrong. Some day ... somehow … education will discover a proper obsession. Until then … children will suffer these testing-despots … and too many adults will make believe it’s all okay. And it’s not. Lots of things in life just can't be measured … because they can’t even be defined. Love. … Continue reading We’re Doing This All Wrong

Perhaps one of the saddest sights in life is not the view of a lost love or even the loss of yourself, but the actual finding of yourself.

This, of course, is me referring ‘To the End.’ Not the end of your life, now don’t be silly!

I am talking about the end of school. The days when all teachers abandon their things from school, bring home all their personal possessions. The students pushed along throughout the hallways discarding all their knowledge into the waste bins.

Things that had been lost in the beginning of the year are miraculously found, including some students finding themselves.

The ones that leave will shed some tears. Those ones, you know, that have already found themselves. Their lockers become empty, and their hearts become full.

She Was Always There

If you ever get a chance to almost die, do it. It might change you forever. The clock was actually spinning backwards … and melting at the same time. And I wasn’t much upset at all … because I could still hear the ticking. I was amused by all the scientificky bleeps and blips… and … Continue reading She Was Always There

College: The Greatest Sting of All

When measured in cold, hard cash ... the college con is the greatest sting of all.

It’s a silky scam set into motion in the earliest grades ... that too often ends in misery for … Continue reading College: The Greatest Sting of All

Why Do We Put Up With These People?

And it’s been this way since man was tossed from Eden.  There are those who command others to do what they would never do themselves. These are the elites who foam up in every society … no matter how egalitarian it’s all supposed to be. The ones who set down special commandments … and then … Continue reading Why Do We Put Up With These People?

This Is Us

  "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect." - Eleanor Roosevelt "The essence of America — that which really unites us — is not … Continue reading This Is Us

Please Care Less

Dear Barack, Thanks, but no thanks. You’ve done enough. In fact, you've done too much. We’re very okay now. In a very good spot. No reason to check back in. Folks have jobs. Taxes hurt less. The PC stuff doesn’t sting anymore … and the race card has finally gone lame. Businesses can breathe. Trade … Continue reading Please Care Less

The Bullet We Dodged

Take a whiff! It doesn’t smell like low-tide anymore.  The Trump counter-insurgency  has ushered in cleaner air … and less stink. And Hillary Clinton is no where in sight! Donald Trump’s been marvelously unconventional in his counter-argument to the progressive idiocy of the Obama abomination. In a quick two years, he’s aerated US foreign policy … … Continue reading The Bullet We Dodged
