I would agree with the idea of not calling MidEast terrs “jihadis.” As said, that would serve to embolden them.
Instead, call them something more /apropos/:
Or, if we’re […]
“Purple penguins”? Please.
“In cases of mixed, indeterminate, or unknown gender; the use of the masculine pronoun form shall be considered acceptable.” This was, I believe, in my FOURTH-grade grammar […]

My wife and I were talking about Ferguson last night, when I brought up an interesting idea:
What do you suppose would happen if, whenever something like this happened, all (or at least MOST) of the businesses […]
Amazing. And yet…
– How anyone could justify the original $600M – let alone the current $840M and potentially $1B – amazes me. Yes, this is a website for national use – but how many commercial websites are […]

Perhaps the hippies in the 1960s who were saying “Question Authority” weren’t far off?
After all, authority MUST be questioned. Regularly. If it can’t stand up to public scrutiny as to its behaviour, it MUST […]

Why is this even an issue that needs to be “proposed?”
Ever see someone in “contempt of Court”? They’re usually hooked up and hauled away ON THE SPOT.
Why didn’t we hook up Lerner and haul her away? The […]
Cellphones are obnoxious in their ubiquity.
While I admit to using my tablet with Wi-Fi at restaurants, I do so in the “dead times” – once I’ve ordered and while I’m waiting, for instance – and generally only […]
I have heard far too much of homeless veterans – especially since I’ve been one myself.
Let’s hear about some “homeless politicians” instead. Barry I &co, for instance, may be dropped into Chicago in street […]
I do not care at which church you worship – that is between you and your deity.
I damned sure /do/ care if we can communicate or not. Perhaps the United States does not have an official language, but we have a […]
@COMMONSENSENEEDED – I have no real trouble with the idea of preserving public safety – but this is a natural result of “everyone has a right, but no-one has a responsibility” as we’ve gotten to these days.
Where’d I say they gov’t could run something? Please – I’ve taken the King’s shilling for about ten years, all up, and I know better.
One idea I’ve had? Once you finish a term of office, you are NOT eligible […]
That would be a key difference in how we think the problem should be handled.
I view “rewarding” the people who made it here as akin to my breaking into your home, then demanding “three hots and a cot.” All […]
I know your comment wasn’t direct at me, but please allow me to weigh in.
I have been EVERYWHERE. Almost literally (the few countries I’ve missed are more prosperous than the ones I’ve seen – such as Japan.) […]

As I’ve said elsewhere, we’re not “breaking up families” if we send them home.
Their parents “broke up the family” when they sent these kids off in the first place. Sending them back is an act of […]
Only seven? Last time I checked, California does the literature and testing in thirty-odd.
(Oh – and the test was EASIER in Greek, Arabic, and Spanish. Go figure…)
Whatever else you want to call it, it’s a workplace safety issue. If things are to suddenly go pear-shaped and some emergency does, indeed, arise; then it is IMPERATIVE that ALL staff present are […]
So, what you’re saying is that these rules keep being put in place because people don’t pay attention to what they’re doing? Makes some backward sort of sense…
(Too many people going around without escorts […]
“Tags” being generic for the number of animals that may be legitimately taken, before being considered a poacher. There’s not much left to tag on an African large animal, once the porters and local are seen […]
Good for you – that would have a better effect than merely belittling people.
Granted, aren’t new items made from rhino horn, elephant ivory, or whatever already illegal to possess? That would solve half of […]
