Random Observations – January 2023

So I’ve been sitting here in Denny’s for an hour *after* finishing my burger. Surfing the news, FB, IMDB and Reddit. And in the back of my tired mind I’ve been stewing over several bits of unrelated bullshit, upon which I will now expound. Mind you, I’m not proclaiming anything. I’m merely opinionating. Why I expect anyone would care is a mystery even to me. Continue reading

What Are You Willing To Lose?

So it’s election time. Predictably, our politicians and the media are making fools of themselves with outlandish claims and impossible predictions. Each party accuses the other of being the enemy of democracy. Personally, I think both are correct. Regardless of which party wins, we stand to lose in some ways and gain in others. Continue reading

Common Sense Has Become Uncommon

America’s political landscape has become a place of extremes. The common sense middle ground, where answers are found and problems are solved, is a deserted wasteland. Extremists from both sides of the political fence have come to define the political debates while those who seek to actually resolve those debates no longer have a voice in Washington.

It’s The Schools, Stupid

I hadn’t planned to blog today. I’ve posted a lot of stuff here lately and apparently it wasn’t very good. But then a few of my friends posted some really bizarre stuff online and I felt the need to answer. More of the “we’re screwed without God” stuff. They apparently believe that “GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL” and all will be well if we just have faith. Continue reading

How Long Do The Last Days Last?

So we’re in the Last Days. How long are they supposed to last? I’m 64 years old and Christians have been blabbing about it for as long as I can remember. When I was still a child and had no choice but to attend church, old Brother McDaniel once said that Jesus’ return was so near he’d like to just keep preaching until it happened. That was over 50 years ago. Continue reading

Hey Christians: It’s Not All About You – Part II

What is it with Christians? Why do they believe that everything has to be about them and their god? Recently the city council of Haven, KS voted to remove the “In God We Trust” logo from their city vehicles because they correctly understood it violated the principle of church – state separation. Continue reading

Hey Christians: It’s Not All About You

Image Credit: Me! 🙂

Christians are programmed to believe that not only is their religion the only “true” religion, but that everyone else is involved in a Satanic plot to destroy Christianity and take over the world (or something like that anyway). For those of us who are not buried in the sour mud of Christian ignorance, it’s often annoying to hear them blathering on and on about how they’re persecuted, abused, slighted and ridiculed.

I Want My Country Back

The last few years have turned the USA upside-down, wrong-side out and ass-backwards. We’ve seen the crazies on both the left and right coming out of the woodwork. Every wacky conspiracy theory imaginable has been tossed out to be batted about on social media and reported on by the news. The People are bleeding money. The government is sucking up our money like a monstrous vacuum cleaner and doling it out to all the wrong people. Where / when / how does it stop?
