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.

Get Off The Couch, You Fat Fu@K

It’s a fine line and never static, between personal freedom and personal responsibility, and if one had to choose I usually lean more on the side for freedom. Thankfully, it is rarely an either-or, so both hats can be worn.

I have written posts in the past on PSA’s, clever hard knocking PSA’s that grab you by the short hairs, push you off that fence, and smack you right in the face with the reality … Read more

More Whoppers

I know, low hanging fruit, too easy;

Was that one of those “tells” for fibbing, he mentions his beautiful wife then pulls on his ear, busted.

For being as brilliant as his supporters like to believe, why does he have such a hard time figuring out that what he says is recorder for posterity, even on the campaign trail? I mean, Bill Clinton was not stupid enough to say that if he got elected he … Read more

Pity The Button On That Jacket

Unlike the English Parliament (Is it OK to call them “English”?) or other legislative bodies around the world where defending one’s honor right there on the floor is not some fashion of a bygone era, our legislative process is positively somnambulatory. The hours are pretty good, pliable interns, and no wasting time reading the bills that they vote on, no, the worst part is sitting through those bloody god awful sessions. But the other … Read more

This Science Is Far From Settled

No, this is not a global warming post, but it is equally nebulous. A video is making the rounds of late trying to graph an empirical link wrt to women and dating. Although entertaining, it is, well, baloney;

First off, how dare he besmirch redheads, obviously he has never had one.

Although he touched on it briefly, the problem with blueprints like this is that women are not static, and will move up and down … Read more

A 40 Cal. Restraint

Another gun post is coming, but just a quick comment about the “Fiddles while Rome burns” attitude of the WH. All the bad news around us, the real unemployment rate, a third of Americans under water on credit, a “red line” border down south, now you see it-now you don’t (And can you believe that moronic George Will on Sunday, let them all in, F@ck It), and what has got the WH staffers … Read more

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
