Movie & TV Bias these days!

I got to thinking this morning about movies/TV shows and how the bias has gotten so bad about liberal bias.  Namely, at least for me, the CW Arrowverse that I so invested myself in.  It’s not that the bias wasn’t

Parkland Shooting

Here we go again, second verse same as the first.  A nut-job gets of a gun (legally) and shoots up a bunch of high school students.  My heart goes not to the victim’s families and the town in general.  It

You’re responsible for the dumpster fire!

In a conversation where I found it funny that Oprah and The Rock were both being recruited to run for president (relating it back to the movie Idiocracy), I apparently triggered a lefty-acquaintance of mine to the point that he

2017: Careful what you wish for

I have asked myself why I bother writing these every year.  I am not so narcissistic to think that anyone actually reads them.  Perhaps it is cathartic.  Perhaps it is just something to write.  I have always liked to look

How soon will Social Media be the new smoking?

Is mental health as important as physical health?  Not yet.  But will it be?  Is overall societal well-being as important as the greater physical well-being?  Who knows?  Maybe one day.  Recent reports have said that founders of some social networking

Trump is the best thing to happen to feminism

How about that for a tag line!  That’ll get the snowflakes a-fluttering.  I only write the occasional rant because I have a thought and the only way I can completely flesh it out is write it down.  I imagine in

You can’t go home again?

After 8 years, I returned to NJ.  This time, it was with all three of my kids, because they wanted to see daddy’s old stomping ground, as well as visit their cousins in their home town.  It was the first time I visited since my parents moved to SC.  I did not realize how hard it was going to be.  I realized, however, I needed closure from that part of my life.  Did I get it?  I am not sure.  Maybe some.

Call it what it is!

I have held back on commenting about this whole HB2 flap since it started a year ago.  While I am not for catering to the small percentage of people afflicted with Gender dysphagia, I am also not for restricting people’s abilities
