“Your choice- get vaccinated or get covid”; LaGrange Daily News; 8-31-21 — Universal Health Reform for America

Your choice- get vaccinated or get covid  I have spoken to several non-political Southern physicians recently about the pandemic. They were candid in their assessments of the virus and what we can do to prevent further damage to American society. They had the following insights:  -The virus has won the battle. It will not be […] […]

Women Need Your Help

This is a blog post from “I Disagree Completely”. Please read it all the way through and then DO SOMETHING. Warning: It is disturbing. Or at least I hope it is disturbing. If it isn’t, don’t tell me. But I don’t want to know you because that would mean that you don’t care what happens […]

“Dinky” Zinke

“Dinky Zinke” a blog post from elsewhere that I likes If you have read anything at all of what I have written in the past, you’ll know a few things about me: I don’t tolerate fools or idiots-and people who desecrate public lands for their own benefit fall into both categories in my estimation. I […]

Chasing Stolen Horses

This was in my home state practically ‘next door’ to where we live. It seems incredible to most people that someone would steal a horse, but they do-and, in many cases, they get away with it. Why? It doesn’t seem logical at first, but it really is very reasonable when you learn the facts. Horses […]

Tell the truth at your peril

October 25, 2021 One of the verities of human nature is that it will pick a “god” and then refuse to examine that entity for flaws. Happens all the time. The problem arises when the “god” is another human being and the reason you are following is that someone else you are fond of told […]

Thoughts on Twenty Years Ago

I was working then for a big clinic in a nearby town. I was managing their laboratory and it was a busy normal morning. Then someone walked by and asked if we had heard the news of the plane that hit the World Trade Center. I thought it had to have been a small private […]

You know, I hate it

I really, really do. The fact that hundreds of thousands of women and girls around this world are mistreated and abused systemically by the governments, religions, and cultures they live in just bugs the crap out of me. But you know what? I’m nearly 70 years old. And I’ve learned a few things in life. […]

Being An Influencer

influencers That’s a new term coined for this era of social media and the internet. It really came into a lot of use with the advent of platforms like Twitter, TikTok, WeChat, SnapChat, Instagram, and too many others to list. Those who wanted to be labeled with the term had to post their “stuff” nearly […]

Good Grief, Charlie Brown

That “man” in our nation’s mansion has to be the world’s largest twit. Or ‘git’ as the UK folks put it. I have seen a lot of people in my life, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anyone with such a display of emotional immaturity, psychological psychopathies, mental disorders, and outright social disorders as […]

‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ might be Trump’s very best idea — THE SHINBONE STAR

not my writing, but it follows my general thought Wikipedia tells us that there have been three “Mutiny on the Bounty” movies, the first in 1935, starring Clark Gable and Charles Laughton; the second in 1962, starring Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard; and finally, the one in 1984, starring Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins. I […]

New Normal??

I don’t know that there is such a thing anymore. Not for us at any rate. We’ve settled into being older, retired Americans on reduced incomes with very boring (usually) lives. Our lives changed radically in the middle 2000’s. Now? Meh. We watch the political shenanigans going on with interest, of course, but it’s more […]
