Net neutrality is in the news this week, and things are not looking good. For those of you who have no clue what this is, or why it’s important, allow me to explain. <put’s on reading glasses> Net neutrality basically states that everyone gets fair treatment on the internet in regard to speed and bandwidth….

Men at Work?

At this point in time, is there anyone who doesn’t believe the only reason the Republicans are so uncooperative and so unhappy with this President, is because he’s black? Can you imagine Republicans asking to see a white candidate’s birth certificate? Booing him during speeches? Sticking a finger in his face like Arizona Governor Jan… Read more »

Wrong Again, Florida

I am actually hard at work this weekend finishing a book revision and an article rewrite, but I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and make a quick comment about the Trayvon Martin case: Yes, the Trayvon Martin verdict was completely wrong.

Separation of church and state

I was watching the news the other night and…ok…I wasn’t actually watching it so much as waiting for The Big Bang Theory to start…but I’m watching MSNBC and they’re televising an argument in the Senate between a democratic senator and a republican senator. The democratic senator makes his point, and then uses a quote from… Read more »

Napoleon Complex

I’m still not sure why Kim Jong Un is so intent on starting a war with South Korea. Can’t he just be happy bowling 11 perfect games in a row and shooting a spectacular 38 on his last golfing expedition? With only 13 holes-in-one, I know he had an off day, but nonetheless, it was… Read more »

From China With Love

Last month the longest high-speed train in the world began operation. Traveling at 180 mph, the current 1400 mile route will now take 8 hours rather than 20. * Do you know where it’s located? It’s in China. China’s economy runs on the rail, and the government there does everything it can to constantly improve… Read more »

Drill Me!

If you didn’t catch your local news last week, you probably missed out on the best story of 2012 – a male dentist was allowed to fire his female assistant because he was afraid he might one day have an affair with her. Yeah. You read that right. The Iowa State Supreme Court upheld a… Read more »

November 22, 1963, Part 2

I decided to do a second part to my previous post and talk a little bit about Lee Harvey Oswald.  I watched last week as a memorial was erected in Texas to the police officer who died at the same time as President Kennedy, JD Tippit, and I was really appalled to see that the… Read more »

November 22, 1963, Part 1

There have always been conspiracy theories. Sometimes the general public can’t accept that bad things happen for no reason or just happen randomly. Almost 50 years ago, the Warren Commission found that a lone gunman killed President Kennedy; that the assassin was a Communist and he acted alone. Since then, evidence has been piling up… Read more »
