Graduation requirement: Constitution test.

When I went to high school (1966-1970), it was required that all seniors take and pass a test on the Constitution of the United States. Not quite a citizenship test but close. The thinking was that as students and young Americans you should at least be aware of what the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. […]

GOP Shooter and F.B.I. Analysis

The F.B.I. put forth one hell of a confusing analysis of the GOP shooting on June 14th. What we know: The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville Illinois, we know belonged to several leftists groups such as: Boycott the Republican Party Terminate the Republican Party The Road to Hell Is Paved With Republicans Join the […]

Supreme Court: Offensive & Hateful speech is Protected Speech

In Matal v. Tam the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) denied the application under a Lanham Act provision prohibiting the registration of trademarks that may “disparage . . . or bring . . . into contempt or disrepute” any “persons, living or dead.” 15 U. S. C. §1052(a). The case involved an Asian band of […]

Latest Trend: Marry Yourself

That’s right. The latest trend among Millennials is to marry themselves. We’re not talking about men doing this… at least I’ve not heard of any. No. This is an invention of the female gender not the male. The television show Nightline ran a story (see video below) about this last night (3/23/2017). In the video […]

Shingles anyone?

It’s true. I am over 50. In fact, I am over 60. And I had the unfortunate displeasure of coming down a case of the shingles. That is the chicken pox virus that has lays dormant for decades after an individual has chicken pox as a child. The symptoms started back towards the end of […]

The Earl and Prine

No one can tell a story like John Prine in a song. I had the pleasure of seeing him play at the Earl of Old Town in Chicago where other great folk artists played from Odessa to Steve Goodman, Jim Post, The Holstein brothers, Bonny Koloc and many many more played. I was just 17 […]

A Dog’s Lifetime

That’s it. I figure that is all I have left: A dog’s lifetime. I just turned 64 and if I am lucky I might live another 20 years to the ripe old age of 84. But that would be about what I would expect as a very good and long life expectancy of a… dog […]

Civil Unrest

Perhaps it was too much to ask of the leftists who call themselves Democrats, liberals and progressives. When in reality they act more like communists with escalating calls for violence and actual violence in their protests. Trump took office on 1/20/2017 and only 11 days into his Presidency we have a small contingent of the […]
