You used to think of college as the best years of your life, right? Now, most of us know and are grateful our lives didnt peak in the first four years after high school and that the rest was not just one slog after another till the bitter end.
I love me some Black Friday. Always have. Theres something about a deal I cant resist. Add to it the energy around the anticipation of the doors opening, and its the Kentucky Derby for people. But what started as a good way to save money on some things you wanted has turned into The Purge.
Its Thanksgiving, so happy Thanksgiving.
When was the last time President Obama tried to persuade you on something? Not as in he called you up and tried to talk you into a timeshare but when was the last time he tried to talk the American people into supporting one of his ideas? Has he truly tried to sell us on anything?
They cant be this dumb, can they? They just cant be.
Its hard to look at the terrorist attack in Paris and not feel awful. Its also hard to not feel rage.
I cant even bring myself to pretend anymore; progressives are simply wastes of human flesh. Theyre spoiled rotten scum, and I mean that with all due respect. And by all due respect I mean none, since they are worthy of none.
This country is awful. I know that because I read it in the paper and heard it on the news. The reasons for our being awful didnt make much difference.
Hillary Clinton lies to the country for 11 hours, and the Democratic Party rallies around her while she declares victory. None of the Americans murdered because of her incompetence were brought back to life and none of the families lied to about a YouTube video were comforted, but still she turned that into the best week ever.
The CNBC Republican debate was a hot mess. It also was exactly what the Republican Party needed.
I mean this sincerely. Just shut the hell up. Give it a rest already. We are the United States of America, the greatest, most prosperous, freest, strongest nation in the history of the planet, and all we seem to do is whine. Knock it off.
Did you watch Hillary Clintons testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi?
While normal Americans go about their business, the political world is anxiously awaiting two men to decide if they want to lead. Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., debated one another in 2012, but now they seem to be playing a game of indifference when it comes to their political futures.
Im sitting here on Friday night watching Blood Diamond on one of the HBO channels. As I watch this movie I realize these people well, these characters since theyre not real people have problems. Real problems. We dont.
Its over. The Democratic Partys first debate just ended, and my main takeaway is how sad it is that the party of JFK has been reduced to five elderly white people arguing over who can out nut-job each other.
John Boehner is out (eventually). Kevin McCarthy is out. Conservatives in the House of Representatives are on a roll. But where is the roll going?
Technology has made life immeasurably better. We now have the sum total of human knowledge in our pockets and at our fingertips. This connectivity has made communication much easier we can now reach anyone at just about any time.
Hollywood has made a lot of money with movies where an older lead character goes back to college and has the time of his or her life.
I quit. Or, more exactly, Im quitting. Not a job or writing, Im quitting smoking. And does it ever suck.
Well, hes gone. More correctly, hes going.
