A sense of humor is strictly required!

Here we try to include posts and links to humorous anecdotes, stories, jokes and cartoons.  Over the years we have found that liberals and conservatives find humor differently.  Liberals are more prone to laugh at someone’s misfortunes.  Conservatives tend to laugh at themselves. Now you may disagree with that analysis however that is my opinion and I hold fast to it.

Not all of the posts and links will be political in nature, but we believe they will tickle your funny bone.  After all, laughter is the best medicine:

As I see the current economic situation

Economic factors affect every day of our lives.  Unfortunately there are times when we ignore the socioeconomic factors that result in hardship to our everyday lives.  Political, social, and economic decisions that our governments take all the way from our local authorities to the federal government in Washington affects us in so many ways that many of us just ignore.  I do not know what it will take to have the citizenry wake up and take back the political process that the major political parties have taken away from us.

The United States was at one time the most powerful economic force in the world.  We are quickly becoming a third world state and it is entirely our fault.  i have my thoughts and opinions and I would like to know yours.

A culture of greed and covetousness

What happened?  When did it change in this country from self-reliance to dependency and an attitude of  entitlement?  The cause of much crime is this sense of entitlement.  You have it, I want it, but I don’t want to work for it, so I’m taking it from you.

Government is the biggest perpetrator of this crime.  It takes from earners to give to non-earners under the guise of social justice. What it is though is wealth distribution.  If you distribute wealth across the board to everyone equally then what would the skilled work for if you are going to give their earnings to the unskilled?

Political Commentary

Commentary from a conservative viewpoint, no I don’t mean the Republican Party line. Republicans haven’t been true conservatives for years. We believe in a common sense approach to conservative principles, no right-wing knee-jerk reactions here.

Having lived as long as I have and have lived through many election cycles since Eisenhower was first running for President of the US I have formed my political views that have changed and expanded over the years.  These views are my own and do not reflect any political party as I have found that there are extremes in all of them.  If you disagree with me you are welcome to express it.  But, I ask that you express yourself in a matter that does not resort to personal attacks and name calling.  Hopefully we are all adults here and we can act accordingly.

Religion & Faith

My views on religion are my own and developed after decades of living on this earth.  I may offend you from time to time but the Constitution of the United States does not protect you from being offended.  I will attempt to express my views without using vulgarity or demeaning language however I understand that occasionally people may misinterpret what I am trying to say.  To that I say, “too bad”.  These are my views and you are more than welcome to discard or ignore them as you see fit.
