Biography

I live in the SF Bay Area, retired from a career working for the State of California. I am an avid tennis player and volunteer in this area within my community. Although I tend to lean right in my politics, I keep an open mind about everything and can be persuaded by a better argument.

Depends On The Community

As if I needed another reason to not do Facebook;

A Facebook page calling for the death of Israeli Jews does not violate the social network’s “community standards,” according to multiple messages sent by Facebook in response to user complaints.

The page in question, is named, “Death to zionst baby killer israeli jews.” The page, which spells “Zionist” incorrectly, features an Image of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a vampire with blood dripping

“Liking” The IDF

Reminding the foot soldier what he is fighting for, genius;

The IDF got a surprising new kind of moral support this week. Hundreds of pretty girls posting their appreciation to the soldiers on a new Facebook page called “Girls love IDF”. Since it was created three days ago, the page already has thousands of likes.

The creators of the page are two young women, Lital Shemesh and Olga Lavie who wanted to show their

Not So Friendly Skies

Here is another one of those stories where both parties need a good ass kicking, or maybe they deserve each other;

It appears that passengers now tweet at their own peril on airlines. We have previously seen how tweets have gotten passengers pulled from planes, including tweets that simply joked or criticized an airline. Now in Minneapolis, Duff Watson says that he was pulled from a Southwest Airlines flight because he tweeted his dissatisfaction with

Godless TV Is Coming

Ho hum, another station that I won’t watch;

It is a fact of American life that even though far fewer than half the adult population attend church on a weekly basis, atheism remains an outright taboo in many corners of the country.
As we discovered on a reporting trip to Virginia earlier, non-belief is something that many Americans are too afraid to even admit to their parents, friend and teachers. Many fear alienation from the

Still Got Lead In His Pencil

Admirable or pathetic, you decide;

Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.

Kessler quotes a supervisor informing a new agent: “You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in.”

Energizer, who is described as charming and friendly, sometimes brought cookies to

Still Crazy After All These Years

My post is about that crazy Uncle Ron Paul, but this morning I watched Obama’s tap dance in the Rose Garden, where he talked about accountability wrt the downed airline and mentioned the troubling news that the black boxes were absconded and hustled back to Russia. He wondered out loud what they had to hide. Naturally one has to snicker at any mention of accountablility, and as for hiding something, let’s see, 2 black boxes … Read more

Even That’s Too High

Hollywood would have you believe that it’s closer to 50%, the goons on the LGBT payroll think that is a good starting point, but it turns out (kinda what we thought all along) that the rainbow kids are not as ubiquitous as we’be been told;

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey

Keep Him Away From Me

Keeping Bergdahl front and center in the news may seem counter productive (why rub our nose in it) but since this administration views his release (and the price paid for it) as a smashing success, much like bagging OBL, I suspect we will see no end to the Bergdahl Reunion Tour, I smell a WH beer summit in the offing. But is putting him back on active duty really a smart thing?

Six weeks after

Res Ipsa Loquitur

A short story about a Vietnam vet, a busted up wheelchair, and a couple of store employees who get it.

In a world gone mad there still exists folks who listen to their conscience and regularly calibrate their moral compass. No blandishments or sugar coating required, the story speaks for itself.

The cynic in me hopes these employees don’t get canned. With stories all over the place of store employees getting fired over doing good, … Read more

Will Have Sex With A Pan For Money

Some whinny millennial is making the news of late, displaying her tale of woe on the internet for the purpose of begging for money. Not real original but when you can wave the LGBT flag around, suckers and their money are soon to follow, throw in a little sexual bigotry and ring the cash register;

A lesbian college student has launched a fundraising campaign to pay for her tuition after her parents learned she
