California 2017

Every ten years in California, two things inevitably happen. One, after we’ve suffered through 7-9 years of drought, enough to turn our lawns brown and require state-wide water rationing, El Nino (a recurring climatic phenomenon) comes back with a vengeance and floods the entire state for months. We’re now one month into 2017, and the… Read more »

The New Administration

I try to stay out of politics when I write my blogs. I lead such an exciting life, that there are literally hundreds of alternative topics for me to write about-cybersecurity, clown porn, even Scarlett Johansson’s new hair style.

Firearms and Family Stores

The NRA lobbyists are truly amazing. Every year, this small group of gun owners dictates gun policy for a nation of over 400 million. And while we point fingers at the federal government for the proliferation of guns and open carry legislation, it’s not entirely their fault. Big business should take some of the blame…. Read more »

Republicans Acting Badly

The other night I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher and Bill told the story of Representative Scott DesJarlais, a pro-life, family values republican, who was recently reelected in Tennessee.

The Crusades – American style

As today is Father’s Day, I didn’t have time to complete the usual rubbish that has become synonymous with my blog. “But I promise, next week it will be much longer, and you will SO enjoy it!” (Which oddly enough was a lie I used in college.) In the meantime, think about this little tidbit…… Read more »
