This is how they get you–Dems Rub Aloe Hillary on my Bern

After 4 days of watching some or all of the Democrat's highly choreographed infomercial for Hillary Clinton, I admit my Bern is fading.  And if my Bern is fading, I know yours is.Like many older Americans, my distrust and dislike of Hillary Clinto...

An end to pragmatism: the Impossible Candidacy of Bernie Sanders

In a functional, normal, give and take Democracy, it might make sense to elect a pragmatist, someone who "knows how to get things done" like Hillary Clinton.  But if Obama's presidency (and Boehner's resignation as Speaker of the House) has reveal...

I’m Dreaming of a Write Christmas

My brothers and I have decided to give each other only writing for Christmas, our own that is: stories, jokes, poetry, liner notes, whatever. So today, I spent about two hours writing a story.  The time just sped by.  I didn't even notice it ...

Judge not, lest ye end up having the best meal of your trip in McDonald’s

Judge not, lest ye end up having the best meal of your trip in McDonald’s

Except for a brief interval where I took my toddlers to the ball pit at the McD's on Capitol Hill every day, I have spent a lifetime scorning and avoiding McDonald's.  I once barely spoke to a friend again...

When in Rome…do what I usually do

I could have written the Control Freak's Guide to European Travel.  I was brought up to travel like the "anti Ugly American."  That is to say, to do everything to be respectful of the local culture, make a solid attempt to speak the language,...
