Mad Dogs And Republicans

Watching the Republicans attack Cohen was like watching mad dogs lashing out at everything and nothing at the same time, all the while dying of the very disease they have spread amongst themselves bite by bloody bite.

The Job Of Government

The business of government is to provide  and care for infrastructure for all,  keeping in mind that people  are our most valuable infrastructure.

Resolution Is Up To The Winners

Is not caring and having surrendered one in the same? Those who perceive to have lost tend to hate forever even if they never act.

That One Time I Cheated

I was maybe twenty three. Maybe younger. I had not long left my first wife and had met and moved in with a beautiful, blond nineteen year old named Teri and her baby daughter, Kellie. I'm using their real names because they did nothing wrong and I wanted them to know-- a confession.

Truckstops were a lot different back in those days with lots of temptations that are mostly gone or at least harder to find these days. Besides the temptations you are no doubt thinking about almost every truckstop had a bar or club located right next door if not inside the truckstop itself. Most of them with plenty of alcohol, live music, and locals out for a night on the town.

You see, often these truckstops were the biggest employers in the small communities in which they were located as they were placed just outside of bigger cities were real estate was still cheap and access to the city was still within reason for truckers doing early morning deliveries.

And yet, despite thousands of years of recorded evidence to the contrary, some will still say war isn't sustainable.

If The North Had Built A Wall During The Great Depression

We Southerners would have starved if the Yankees had built a wall along the Mason-Dixon line during the Great Depression.

Just think of how many of our relatives black and white moved up north in search of jobs during the Great Depression. And yet Wall Street controlled our Southern economy even then. All the products and all the money that was made went up north just as all of Central America's assets all go to Wall Street today.

Southerners made and sold whiskey to make ends meet. Most of that whiskey was sold up north.

These days folks in Central America make and sell drugs.

Maybe if Wall Street didn't take everything else they have our neighbors to the south would quit making and selling drugs.

Maybe they'd stop coming here in search of jobs.
