Don’t suffer from Voter Insanity

As voters, sadly probably not that many, cast their ballots in today’s mid-term primary election, I offer a simple observation.

It is not designed to be an endorsement of any candidate or party. Merely just something to think about while in the voting booth.

In the past 6 years — even the past 14 years, which covers the terms of two presidents, one Republican and one Democrat — what have our elected officials in Washington accomplished to better our country, to provide the opportunities for individuals to improve their lives? Continue reading

A victory for corporations; a blow to individual freedoms

The High Court seems to be consistent in defining corporations as individuals in their rulings against real people and allowing corporations to influence politics with unlimited cash donations, unfiltered, half-truthed and often downright false advertising. This decision doesn’t give power and individual freedoms back to the people, it provides an avenue of control by corporations over the people. I say this not as a conservative or liberal, but realizing that conservative and liberal corporations certainly will take advantage of the ruling.

Only one cure for evil: death

Mid-afternoon Wednesday, I was sitting on the couch in my son’s home and next to me, as usual, was 4-year-old granddaughter Rylin, snuggling next to me while playing doctor and dentist on her tablet. Then she stretched out, putting her head on the pillow and her legs and feet across my lap.

“Tickle my feet,” she said.

And, of course, I obliged.

We talked about her day in school, about how she ate the rest of Mee-Moo’s (Grandma Terri’s) meatloaf for lunch, and then began playing a maze game. We took turns helping each other.

“We make a pretty good team,” I told her. Continue reading

One year ago…

It was nearly one year ago to the day when Olathe was pounded by the worst snow storm of the winter.

Sitting in the front room, working on my taxes while surfing the channels on the television to the delight of my wife Terri, I stumbled onto a rerun of the show Survivor Man. He was left stranded in the Artic for seven days, alone to survive in the elements.

Staring at my tax receipts, glancing out the window at the heavy snowfall and listening to Les Stroud as he tries to create a shelter, I was reminded of being battered in Olathe’s snow storm a year earlier in my attempts to be Snow-vivorman!

Enjoy my rerun!
