It was good to see President Obama go on television the other day to explain why he supported the NATO no-fly zone in Libya. I think he did a good job of saying how we as U.S. citizens… Read More
I speak truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more as I grow older. (Catherine Drinker Bowen) I got the above quote from a fellow blogger a… Read More
“Another trouble with politics, it breeds politics. So that makes it pretty hard to stamp out. The only way to do it is at the source. We got to get birth control among politicians.” — Will Rogers 1934… Read More
This is a picture of me at the Great Salt Lake in 2009. I am currently using it as a header for my homepage blog RJ’s Corner.
Note: I am going to cross-post here from one of my other blogs. I couldn’t decide which one was the most appropriate so I will post at both. (ha) Since the Republicans seem hell-bent on rolling back Obama-care… Read More
Since the Republicans seem hell-bent on rolling back Obama-care I wanted to talk a little about one of the effects of this action. I recently had to have a rather expensive blood test run for a potentially life… Read More
As usual the Republicans are at it again. They are coming out in force to say how terrible Obama-care is but offering no solutions themselves. I guess they think they got the house back with this strategy so… Read More
I saw an article recently about how people in the future will likely typically live to be 100 years old. At first thought that sounds kind of nice. I align with the old saying “Everyone wants to get… Read More
The Republicans are at it again. All the presidential hopefuls are coming out in force to say how terrible Obama-care is but offering no solutions themselves. I guess they think they got the house back with this… Read More
Found this one during our Wisconsin barn search last year. Not only is it an old barn but it appeared to be an abandoned converted barn :)
I see where the Republicans in the House have only managed to eliminate half the “earmarks” in the current budget. I guess some things are just too sacred. Most of the remaining “pork” is associated with military projects…. Read More
As mentioned on a previous post we are getting ready to head off on a Spring Vacation through Maryland, Virginia, and probably a few other States. So that means loading up our HHR with all the “necessities”. We… Read More
This is definitely a place where a picture, in this case a poster, is worth a thousand words so I don’t have much to add. Someday we will join the rest of the industrialized nations and provide universal… Read More
It seems the Republicans are all over the map considering this Libya thing. But one thing they all agree with is that President Obama is WRONG one way or another. They are very good at showing wrong but… Read More
What is considered to be old is, of course, a matter of perspective. I have always been a dreamer in that throughout my life, although not so much lately, I have thought about where I would be and… Read More
This picture was taken during our month-long trip to the west coast. We didn’t discover many barns in the west. This was on of the few we even managed to snap during that trip.
I have spent most of my life in the Midwest but did finish out my professional career in the NYC area. Before I moved to the Northeast I had frequent business trips there. It seems that many people… Read More
It warms my heart that two European countries have taken the lead in keeping the dictator of Libya from destroying his own people. Maybe humanity does mean something to political powers. I am also relieved that the U.S…. Read More
“Once a man holds public office, he is absolutely no good for honest work.” –Will Rogers —
Those of us who are older remember many barns with the Rock City ads on them. They are quickly disappearing from the countryside.
The title of the post is directly from the title of the article I am going to discus. Basically what the Republicans seem to be saying is that banks should have all the control on how to foreclose… Read More
I just finished an article (see the link below) about how Secretary of State Clinton praised the demonstrators in Egypt who are overthrowing the current autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak. She made the statement “The pyramids are magnificent but… Read More
When President Obama was campaigning in 2008 he made it a point to say that there were some circumstance where he would use the military might of the U.S. to right something that was morally wrong. See the… Read More
The above sculpture was on the front of one of the government office buildings in Omaha NE. I’m not sure what the underlying meaning of the sculpture is? But it certainly got my attention!
