Flyers Progress from Passengers to Freight

More foreigners are complaining about discrimination and Donald Trump hasn’t even taken the oath of office. This time it’s Samoans, which I always thought were New Zealand’s problem, but evidently are ours. The Telegraph reports two businessmen “filed complaints to the US Transportation Department after they were weighed before boarding a flight from Honolulu – and assigned specific seats to ...

Lessons NOT learned in 2016!

2016 seemed to be the year that political correctness (PC) was allowed to accelerate faster than a fire in a jet fuel factory. The craziness grew rampant on college campuses with safe spaces, trigger warnings, protests on conservative speakers only, and so much more… just crazy!

With apologies to George Ramos, this year the first presidential debate is the Big Enchilada. Independent voters will finally be tuning in to see both candidates boca–y–boca. This cumulative first impression will probably decide the election. And what will Independents be concerned about?

I Wish My Column Was ‘More Addictive Than Cocaine’

Cocaine is commonly recognized as the baseline for degradation clichés in the US. A product, pastime or vice has made it big when an authority figure compares its addictive power to that of cocaine while warning the public of a looming threat to domestic tranquility. Once a reporter is told something or other is “as addictive as cocaine” the story ...

The Typo that Bloated a Nation

For decades Americans have been laboring under a misconception that has fueled the growth of Jenny Craig, stretched spandex to the limit and turned people–watching at the mall into a vaguely unsettling experience. Mothers, teachers and motorcycle cops have been lecturing us for years that “haste makes waste.” Meaning rushing through a project, test or municipal speed trap can result ...

Playing mind games can be healthy

The fact that you experience a “senior moment” now and again doesn’t mean you’re your losing it, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens.  Forgetfulness is part of the aging process. “It’s normal to forget some things, and to become a bit more forgetful as you age.  It’s also normal to worry about forgetting.  What isn’t normal is forgetting too ...

Why Mr. Ed Gives Better Lifestyle Advice than the Media

Paraphrasing William F. Buckley, I’d rather take lifestyle direction from 200 randomly selected people in the phone book than follow the advice found in the 200 most prominent media outlets. Reporters are fad–conscious professionals at the expense of common sense. If they can identify a trend first, they become media experts and their journalistic prestige — if there is such ...

Faith, Celebrities, Charity, & the War on Christianity!

Denzel Washington dishes on his religious upbringing and his faith in God and the Bible. War on Christianity (not all religions). You don’t see the Quran and Torah being banned from schools, military, and public places like is happening with the Bible. Celebrities who “come out” vocal about their Christian faith. Are you looking for your blessing? When was the ...

Nothing says political like Selma!

The President went to Selma, Alabama to celebrate and commemorate the march across the bridge that helped bring civil rights to the forefront, into the living room of all Americans, and help move it forward. Yes, it was aimed at the black community, but as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed, all would be judged on the content of their ...

Who’s Killing Who in the U.S. the REAL facts!

Remember when your parents told you to believe half of what you see and almost none of what you hear? I think of that every time I see a Tweet or Facebook post from people I know never check out their information. These erroneous “posts” get traction mostly because they are received by friends and family who think you would ...
