April Snow Showers?

Posted in Humor, Society, The Environment on April 16th, 2014

I get the idea of April showers…but snow showers? Really, Mother Nature? I thought you were supposed be having hot flashes from Global Warming.

It’s Fucking Cold & Windy But Not Unbearable ;-)

That’s right! It’s the middle of April but last night the Sping weather made an exit in the Tristate region. Snow moved back in late last night. Heavy, wet snow was reported from the Hudson Valley, northern New Jersey and New York City and temperatures are expected to remain unseasonable cold through the week.

A Utopian Future?

Posted in Humor, Politics on April 15th, 2014

Most people, at least occasionally, dream of a Utopian future. They dream of the world becoming a better place for themselves, their children, and their children’s children. This is intrinsically good since a better future cannot be made reality without it first being a fantasy.

Is A Utopian Future Possible?

So, my fellow Americans, keep dreaming of a more Utopian future for America. Who knows what dreams may come to if there are enough dreamers dreaming them. ;-)

Libs’ Tourette Syndrome

Posted in Humor, Politics on April 14th, 2014

Got Nothing? Pound The Table!

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author George Will brought down the sarcasm hammer on the Liberals with his apt description of their incessant race-baiting as a form of Tourette Syndrome.

And Mr. Will makes a good point. The Liberals, having neither law nor facts on their side, fell back on “pounding the table.” Yet, this tactic became a pathology among them. An automatic and involuntary response to all dissent and criticism.

And yes! Mr. Will is also right in the cries of racism have become a national joke, proving that even mental illness can have positive societal effects.
