Review: Russell Brand’s Revolution

What does it mean to live a charmed life? Russell Brand wasn’t alone in thinking that fame, money, sex, and drugs were the keys to unlocking happiness and contentment. He had everything that our society tells us we should want. He had (and still has) it all. But now, he’s using his fame to communicate that our desires and moral compass have been corrupted....more

#WhyIDidn'tVote: What Millennials Are Really Saying About the Midterms

Still reeling from the huge Republican sweep in the midterm elections, I got hit with yet another bizarre reality of the election. I heard on MTV, "78.7 % of Millennials did not vote in the 2014 midterm elections." Responding to what clearly had to be erroneous information, I found myself yelling at the TV, "Wait, what? Did I just hear that right? (chuckling) That just can't be true..." ...more

TOO MUCH CHATTER......I Would Rather Hear My Own Self THINK....."I Think...."

Too Much Chatter.....Too Much TV....Too Much News.....and simply too many early morning radio shows.......This morning I was driving home from dropping my child off at school and I turned on the radio.....Every single channel I went to had a Morning Radio Show....talking Political Events, How to lose weight, Celeb talk, trash talk...and just about any thing you could think of......It was simply too much information for me to absorb at 7:30am with my first cup of coffee in hand.........more

Conservative or Liberal: How To Stay Friends When You are Total Opposites

I have to admit I am conservative in my views on issues in general and very proud of it. I am open to other's viewpoints, and yet I value my own. I simply cannot stand "wishy washy" people; they are the worst kind of people to be around, always changing their minds like the direction of the wind or changing their opinion to please whomever comes into the room. I have many friends who are liberals. They have their opinions and I have mine, and yet, we seem to get along. How is that so? How is it that we can stay friends when we have such opposite views?...more
Constant Commoner.....I love how you worded most of what I agree with.....You truly put in words ...more

POLITICALLY INCORRECT........Why I am not a Feminist......

A lot of my friends think I am politically incorrect......but then I also think I am politically incorrect......In other words I tend to say what I think rather than say what everyone else wants to hear.......I feel our society has become so consumed in  saying only what they think will be approved of by the majority and most people avoid what would be ridiculed by those who seem to "bully" opposing views........more

Dear President Obama

Dear President Obama,I have been going back and forth about whether or not I should discuss the Israeli-Hamas war on Dim Sum and Doughnuts. It’s not a topic I feel totally comfortable with for the following reasons:...more

Open letter to Obama's speech writer  It seems as if every day, regardless of what's going on in the world, Obama (or "this president" as he is commonly called) is charged with pretty much the same things, so if I were you, I would simplify my job by having an outline prepared and filling in the blanks. The script I recommend:...more

Can tech turn out the vote in 2016?

Until 2012, only unions had the army to turn out votes and money. Then a Freshman Senator from Illinois named Barack Obama changed the rules. He raised more money than the unions could provide and he formed his army of millennial for the votes....more

Rob Ford: Mayor of Addiction

Toronto mayor Rob Ford has been a fun headline joke:-        A full-time job for Rob: Minister of Denial! -       Rehabing #peakbatshit!-       Ford’s follies: The mini-series! Yep, it’s tempting. Everybody’s doing it. Ford’s buffoonery invites us. But really, addiction is no laughing matter....more


MY POLITICALLY INCORRECT VIEW ON POLITICS….You know the old saying “friends and politics don’t mix….” is probably so true…..I have always believed that……I have seen so many friendships fall by the wayside over the discussion of politics and religion……So many people who would have otherwise had a great relationship allowed it to be destroyed over opposing views….I simply wonder if it is worth it……...more
