Stardate 2014?

It’s always amazing to see all the hype and extensive preparation for welcoming the New Year.  This year, in just about every country in the world, people are counting the minutes … eventually the seconds until 2014 arrives with a blaze of glory! Fireworks light up the sky in Sydney, pyrotechnics leap out along the […]

‘Chubs’ In Toyland

Major chubs are not plus-sized, not full figured or even 3X, they’re simply chubs.  When something jiggles where it’s not supposed to, it can be grossly unattractive at best and hugely unhealthy at worst … beyond any bruising that may occur to some rosy-cheeked little cherub’s self-esteem.  I’m not talking about overweight caused by unavoidable […]

On Dasher, On Dancer …

Well, Santa appears to be headed back to the ice floes of the North Pole, the shreds of colorful gift wrap have been cleared away and even Boxing Day is behind us.  Boxing Day was once explained to me as a tradition observed in the UK, Canada, Australia and other Commonwealth nations, usually the day […]

My Wish To You

To My Democrat Readers: Please accept [with no obligation implied or implicit] my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday … either practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice or secular practices of your choosing, having the utmost respect for […]

“O”

How out of touch with common sense and reality can “O” be when he suggests that people talk about his healthcare debacle during their family Christmas celebration?  I suppose he’d rather if folks leave off the debacle part, but that’s pretty hard to do when your Holiday present from the White House has been to […]

A Media Christmas

The online ‘teaser’ on the news service read, “Half of US Celebrates Agnostic Christmas.”  I thought, “That doesn’t sound right, even with some of the Godless and unwashed that are gaining influence in the world of Political Incorrectness these days.”  So, I went to the article, which paraded the headline, “Half of America Strips Religion […]

Hi-Tech Robo Geeks

The only thing scarier looking than the mechanical ‘Martian’ in the radiation suit is the four legged stack of servos and circuits, arranged into a furless, robotic rendition of Rin Tin Tin!  Anyone see the movie “The Bicentennial Man?”  Well, that seems to be where we’re headed.  It would all be quite laughable, if the […]

Me Too!

Dialed up the news this morning and what to my wandering eyes should appear but the headline, “China Lands On Moon,” like it was some kind of first.  I suppose if you’re one of a bazillion Chinese craning your neck to see earth’s nearest neighbor from your rice paddy it’s a big deal … but, […]

Say, “Mandela”

The president needs to go on vacation.  He does a lot less damage in Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii than he does in Europe or Africa, except to the budget … but that may be a good trade! Gleefully shaking hands with Communist dictator Raoul Castro might be excusable, except to Cuban-Americans, but may at least […]

Upsidedown and Backwards

The capacity of the left to stand things on their head and destroy them is truly amazing … like balancing an egg on end, then smashing it!  The latest mob performing such sleight of hand is the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.  They’ve managed to get a nativity scene at a United States Air Force base […]
