Why Do You Hate Your Neighbor?

I recently posted an article on Facebook about the Secret Service being strapped after the travel associated with protecting large family Trump. The President has the prerogative to travel domestically as well as overseas, so frankly Donald Trump’s travels to golf every weekend is simply the way it is. On the other hand, his son’s

For Sale

I was just reading an article/interview on Scaramucci the White House newest employee as the Communications Director. He was covering his tracks of the past few years where he was critical of Trump on all fronts because he was siding with someone else. His new-found loyalty to Trump is suspect on one hand an incredibly

For Lori

I have lost too many friends, family and community acquaintances to the money surrounding cancer. This is honest and heart felt and there is in my view zero room for debate. It is time for action and anyone not understanding ought to look around in your community. Notice the pain and suffering and know that

Vanishing

I dialed in the conservative KOA Denver on the radio coming back from Salida the other day and happened on the Mandy Connell show. I had heard her once before and was impressed with her awareness of what is real in politics. She surely must be Irish with savvy like she has. She was a

What Do You Want To Hear?

At one point maybe 8 months ago I was thinking, ‘What the heck. Great leaders come out of nowhere at times, maybe Trump could fool us and really be good.’ Not that I was going to run right out and vote for him with the pretty lousy track record he had in business, but he

Ask Erm-Politics

After absorbing far more political rhetoric than a person should be forced to consume, I happened to walk by one of my kitties, Erma.  I looked her in the eye and asked, “Erm, who would you vote for out of this quagmire of rhetorical candidates? Her tail sweeping in long, slow arcs she paused on

Diversity-The key to life

From the New York Times article “Scientists Unveil New ‘Tree of Life’” by Carl Zimmer “The new tree of life that researchers published on Monday. It shows that much of Earth’s biodiversity is bacteria, top, half of which includes “candidate phyla radiation” that are still waiting to be discovered. Humans are in the bottom branch

Who Are We?

Seems like everyone out there are defining who their neighbors, family and friends are based on what they are told on the television, in email forwards, through social media, during speeches and on talk radio. We are suddenly so malleable we can’t make up our minds who we are by ourselves? Old friends and family

Right Where We Left Off

Right Where We Left Off

These past few days I cannot get the politically ridiculous comments of Sarah Palin out of my mind regarding it being a President’s fault that her son does not know right from wrong in domestic behavior no matter what the cause. I know I shouldn’t let her kind of cheap rhetoric get to me, but

Fear-The Winners and Losers Part III

Fear-The Winners and Losers Part III

Christ Cleansing the Temple, by Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1875 Almost without exception greed is the root of all our evils world wide. I told my hubby that I could write many blogs under one title-“Greed” and simply number them 1-100 to differentiate between them. After the economy began it’s decline in 2005 a young friend
