No Man Is Great If He Thinks He Is – Will Rogers

The topic of this post is the new quote in the header above.¬† I imagine everyone with an IQ above a cucumber knows who I am talking about.¬† #CO3 thinks he is the greatest human being ever to walk the earth!¬† But, I guess there are also some around, who do have the IQ of a cucumber who agree with him. I’m sorry Will, but … Continue reading No Man Is Great If He Thinks He Is – Will Rogers

The Happiest People in the World?

You know the old saying that “money can’t buy happiness”, and happiness is the most sought-after thing in life for most of us.  Happiness is even embedded in our constitution, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. So, the question is just what does bring on happiness. Obviously, money is not the answer so what is? To answer that question we need to find the happiest people in … Continue reading The Happiest People in the World?

Cutting Taxes Is The Easy Part…

As the new header says the GOP just loves to cut taxes but that is the easy part.¬† They just don’t seem to be up to the more difficult part of cutting spending, or at least cutting it where a majority in Congress will agree.¬† They most often propose to cut entitlements as they call them.¬† Those are things that help the average citizen along … Continue reading Cutting Taxes Is The Easy Part…

(WS) I’ll Tell You What the Bible Says…

While waiting for my car to be serviced recently I browsed a Barnes & Noble store.¬† I don’t do that often anymore as most of my purchases are now e-books. When I came upon the Bible section it suddenly caught my attention as to the number of books by people who propose to “tell” me about what the Bible says. For those who are unfamiliar¬†with … Continue reading (WS) I’ll Tell You What the Bible Says…

Turning Back the Odometer…

I like old cars and I am kinda proud of passing on some of my experiences in life here on RJsCorner. Yeah, there are things, actually quite a few, that I would like to have been different but even the undesired things are an important part of my life’s experiences, that looking back have made me who I am. If I hadn’t been deaf I … Continue reading Turning Back the Odometer…

Breaking Down The Myths About Deafness

On my post a while ago entitled “Life’s Lesson” I said there were ten things that I have learned in my life that I aim to put forward for your consumption here on RJsCorner. It is important to me and I kinda think it should be important to each of us that when we come across myths about living, we should do what we can … Continue reading Breaking Down The Myths About Deafness

A Lot Of Noise Goin On…

I don’t know why I seem to be so fixated on sounds lately let alone poultry stuff.¬† My daily and weekly posts here are RJsCorner are now named after sounds (cackle and squawk) that chickens make. I need to get to the underlying reason for this. ūüôā¬† I lost my¬†hearing thirty years ago, and since then my brain has forgotten what many sounds sound like.¬† … Continue reading A Lot Of Noise Goin On…

Throwing the baby (or 242 Years of History) out with the bath water.

I am assuming that most folks know the first phrase in the title above.¬† ¬†Here is what my friends at Wikipedia¬†say that means: In a nutshell that means don’t throw the good stuff out with the bad. That sounds like a common-sense thing to me, but it sure seems like there are a lot of folks out there that missed that lesson when it was … Continue reading Throwing the baby (or 242 Years of History) out with the bath water.

For Some, The World Is Very Small Place

I am a person who almost demands constant change. Doing the same thing over and over again is very boring to me. Maybe I am different from most in that regard?¬† I recently saw a TV show where an old person proudly proclaimed that he still lives in the house he was born in. My first thought was that he certainly lives in a tiny … Continue reading For Some, The World Is Very Small Place

To My High School Friends – I’m Coming Out Of The Closet

I got to say immediately that no I am not declaring that I am gay. Instead, I am openly declaring here and on my personal Facebook page that I am a liberal/progressive in my¬†social and political¬†leanings.¬† Many of my high school friends are likely pretty hardcore conservatives who watch Fox News on a 24/7 and most likely voted for the #CO3 (current Oval Office occupant). … Continue reading To My High School Friends – I’m Coming Out Of The Closet

Will Rogers – About Religious Beliefs

A regular part of RJsCorner is going to be looking at Will Rogers quotes and seeing how they apply in today’s world. So, this is the first of many in that area. Even¬† 80 years ago it seems that there were more than a few who thought religions did more damage than they helped. I think what Will was saying is that “Bible thumpers,” and … Continue reading Will Rogers – About Religious Beliefs
