  • Here’s a hint to politicians (but one that applies to everybody): don’t talk about something you know too little about, or you will come across as a fool. Even my three year-old niece knows when someone’s full of it…her latest favorite word being “moron”. I think it’s absolutely precious! So, […]

  • Those were words I often heard from one of my favorite ex-co-workers from time to time, and it was always in relation to some stupid thing the government does.  Whether it was taxes (usually around mid-April), divorce law, immigration, quotas, or any number of things, that was pretty much what […]

  • Astute readers of this blog already know what I’ve written on Mormonism and Mitt Romney in the past (Mitt Romney won’t get my vote) (The loaded term that is “bigotry”). However, I don’t believe I’ve ever mentioned Al Sharpton here. The stars have aligned, and I now feel the time […]
