In defense of Old White Guys.

    Say it isn’t so Joe…well, he did it. Hoping that the 3rd time is the charm, former Vice President Joe Biden is running, again, for President of the United States of America. A former Senator from Delaware he has had a long distinguished career in the Senate and politics in general. Tapped to be then Senator, Barack Obama’s running mate in 2008. Joe Biden brought his experience and inside knowledge of Washington D.C. politics to the ticket. It was a winning ticket. Joe Biden is a powerhouse of a candidate. A force to be reckoned with, and the Trump re-election committee will be working overtime to combat this threat. Well, they would have.   But now? Joe has issues. For one, he’s…

Just because you think the world is flat, doesn’t make it so. Same with your gender.

  This is like my 5th draft of this post. No, seriously, I have written this four times before and didn’t like it. Kept coming off mean, and disingenuous. Because something is wrong, and I can’t quite put a finger on it. Every time I try? sounds like I am being a whiny. And it all revolves around Gender Identity. And while I seriously do not care what gender you identify as? It’s this nagging thing in my brain that is troubling me. H.R.5 Equality Act of 2019 and Hillary Clinton. It started with a post by Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. A nice post, wishing well to the Transgender community on Visibility day. What really caught my eye was the flag. Because…

Or Stupidity, depending on your perspective.     Capitalist are a greedy bunch. All they care about is making a buck, sticking to the little guy, and buying $40 Million yachts so they can sail around the world tossing plastic bags into the Ocean to kill poor Sea Turtles. (because Rich People are also mean.) Lets face it, nobody likes Rich people. Well, unless you are a rich person, then you point at other rich people and tell everyone they are the greedy ones. But you? You are the nice sort of rich person. That other guy is mean. He hates Sea Turtles. About 99.9% of all rich people have dealing with Big Pharm, Big Oil, and Tobacco companies. You know, 401K plans. They…

Socialism will work…this time around.

  One thing you can say about Socialist, they are a tenacious bunch. Unlike other philosophical ideas that have come and gone, socialist just can’t leave the idea alone. They try it here, they try it there, and well, they just don’t give up. In the most basic understanding, socialism is a great idea. Look at it this way. People should have a place to live, ability to work, have equality and a voice among the classes. In fact, social classes need to disappear. Chucked into the garbage heap of Feudal Lords and Serfdom. Let’s face it, working in the fields all day long to make your local Baron rich? Not a great life. Few people would argue with socialistic ideas. We would all…
