Should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be put to death for his monstrous crimes or spend the rest of his miserable days confined in a small cell?

Bernie has always said he is a “socialist” with a small “s”, which means he cares about all Americans. He wants everyone to have equal rights, equal chance to succeed, and equal pay for equal work. So many times I see where he is called a “communist” but he believes in democracy with a twist of socialism.

As far as Sgt. Bergdahl is concerned, I think he should be given the benefit of doubt. We don’t know what he witnessed to make him walk off into the enemy territory. Some soldiers are more attuned to combat while others are less so. I feel that he was overcome by his experience.

Why not ship the oil to the nearest refinery and distribute it from there? We don’t need to put a pipeline across one of our biggest aquifers. Both North and South Dakota have refineries.

People dressed in military uniforms attend a ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, in Old Bethpage, New York

Guys in Vietnam (I talk from experience about Nam) saw buddies wounded or killed. Many of us helped get them on choppers to get medical help. Most of us had to shoot enemy soldiers. Believe me that is not easy for some of us. I know it haunts me. It goes against human nature to kill other human beings. Oh, there are some people who like killing, no doubt. But I think most folks do not enjoy taking life from another human.

          I enjoyed the super Bowl, Patriots are my team. I like football as a sport. However I can’t understand how the NFL can accept corporate welfare? How can a business be a nonprofit if they pay the commissioner 44 million a year? I admit that […]

      If there were really such a thing as “justice” the bush administration would be in prison, the cop who killed Mike Brown would also be in prison, and Boehner and his bretheren would NOT be in their lofty positions. ISIS would not have a hold on any […]

Dr. King

In a hot auditorium in Charleston, SC on July 30, 1977, I heard Dr. Martin Luther King declare: “I’m not gonna say, ‘Burn baby burn’!” I’m gonna say “Build baby build!”

WH Screening Room

With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

May the world experience PEACE!

May all people think about others and help those in need. I wish for love and peace to out pace and overrun war and discourse. I wish for cures for cancer and all the rest of deseases. Equality for women, and all minorities. That all people care about and love one another.The end of GREED!

Extremists of any religion are the downfall of their religion. Those extremists hurt people of their religion and others as well. For proof, you need look no further than the Muslim extremists killing indiscriminately which gives Islam a black eye or worse. Of course Christianity has those vile “Westboro Baptist” extremists. They don’t like anyone. Seem to hate other religions and soldiers and just about everyone. There are examples of extremists in most all religions.

"Walk with me. Talk with me."

As we all know, there’s a big difference between wanting to engage folks with varying opinions in conversation and just plain old garden variety trolling. When you see the following techniques employed — you know that you’ve found yourself a genuine troll. Bless his li’l heart…

It is not only the college students who don’t know history but many of our Congressmen/women and Governors (former half term comes to mind, you know she could see Russia from her back porch.).

Test yourself. Can you think of other words in our (not hour) language that either are spelled the same but mean something else? Or spelled differently but pronounced the same?

Elizabeth Warren divined the reasons for the financial meltdown and continued economic sluggishness–the fact that the middle class now needs 104 paychecks a year to pay for a lifestyle their parents had with 52.

We have to be the first to take personal responsibility for our own carbon footprint. And it’s probably not going to be a walk in the park–most other industrialized nations keep energy prices high for a variety of different reasons.
