Civility vs anger

Civility-that’s a word that is being tossed about on the social media platforms a lot these days. “We want civility in our group.” “Please be civil-those who are not will be banned.” Etc.  That’s really nice and all that, but who is the judge of what is and what isn’t civil discourse? Is it just […]

The fireworks just don’t seem to stop with this guy now that he’s is squarely in the cross-hairs. I’ve said from the start that he was a rotten apple in a barrel of rotten apples, but my voice was one of many ignored. To put it simply, the Cabinet was staffed with crooks and shysters […]

How SHOULD We Feed Our Horses?

Way back in the Dark Ages when I was reading everything I could get my grubby little hands on-and you can bet I knew EXACTLY where in the libraries the horse books were located-it was all pretty much the same thing. Now I will qualify that-it was in the English language and here in the […]

Locking the Barn Door

Ever heard the saying “that’s like shutting the barn door after the horse is gone”? Lots of truth to that one-unfortunately, there’s also a ton of truth to this observation, “Locks are only to slow down good people.” Now THAT one is gospel truth. People who slap a padlock on a gate or a barn […]
