Shrinkage

It was almost a corporate mantra for the months of Covid - No one wants to work! Over and over you heard or read it, on the news, on podcasts, in blogs, on the radio, and from business owners themselves.  People just didn’t want to work anymore.  Them lazy people were just happy to suckle… Continue reading Shrinkage

What Is It That Opinions Are Like, Again?

Opinions are interesting, aren’t they? We are all entitled to them, we all have them, and most of us feel the need to spout them from time to time. With this blog, it’s opinions all the time. The thing with something like a blog though is it’s something you have to participate in, in that… Continue reading What Is It That Opinions Are Like, Again?

Frayed

I saw something today that has stuck with me.  I had dropped my daughter off and was grabbing a quick bite on my way to work when I saw a man and a little girl, bundled up and standing beside the entrance to the place I was going with a sign. I didn’t get a… Continue reading Frayed

The Pay Down

I beat this drum a lot but MAN ALIVE wouldn’t it be nice if the people that did some of the most harm in the world had to, you know, actually suffer consequences for that harm? How many times do we see Billionaire X take a HUGE risk on something only to have it not… Continue reading The Pay Down

The Broken Among Us

I get frustrated every time I read a story about another violent, angry young man who is bitter at the world for not giving him what he felt he deserved so he lashes out at people and hurts or kills them out of blind rage.  Angry that he didn’t have a significant other, that he… Continue reading The Broken Among Us

Not That Hard

It’s hard to take our American culture seriously at times. Especially our moral outrage. I saw this in the 1980’s with music and the fear that the devil was influencing kids as they sat listening to music in their rooms. Then there was the fear of role playing games. The fear of video games. The… Continue reading Not That Hard

Podcasting, As One Does

So, I mean, you know I have a podcast, right? Right? I mean, it hits the main feed so I think you do but I figured it was worth mentioning, just in case. I have been podcasting in general for almost ten years now but solo since 2020, the height of the pandemic. I started… Continue reading Podcasting, As One Does

We Already Know Where We’re Going

Sometimes you head somewhere, thinking you are just out for a drive when deep down you already have a destination in mind. We head out in our vehicle and we just let the wind rush through the windows, we turn up the tunes, and we zone out and just sorta let the road unfold before… Continue reading We Already Know Where We’re Going

Kings and Queens

The idea of having a monarch that oversees a nation feels a little outdated, doesn’t it? Sure, in many cases these are ornamental acknowledgments of the past and while they have a ‘say’ in things, they don’t run the nation. That isn’t always true, as you will get some countries where there is a ruler… Continue reading Kings and Queens

Deny, deny, deny

I am led to wonder lately how it is we can present ourselves as the leaders of the ‘free’ world when we live in such denial. Now, each of us lives in personal denial of one thing or another - we really do need to exercise, we really do need to find a  new job,… Continue reading Deny, deny, deny

False Idols

There is something chilling about a political party that pretends to be very pious and devout to the Christian faith following a false idol. How many times have we heard the lectures that the Antichrist is coming and that they are among us now? How many times have we heard religious leaders more interested in… Continue reading False Idols

The Chasm of But

There is a giant chasm that lies between what we Know and what we Don’t Know. A lot can get lost there. There is the old adage that the victors of a war tell the future the facts and the story, and it’s left to us and the people past us to decide how ‘true’… Continue reading The Chasm of But
