Only in America can you be a total jerk, and still have at least half the population think you are totally cool and know what you are talking about.

I Wish

I wish I had been a better person 50 years ago; I wish, also, that I had been a better person 30 years ago. It would have been great if I had been a better person 10 years ago, too, and I wish I had been a better person both yesterday and today. Can you help me be a better person tomorrow?

Anyone who says that all you need is luck is a fool. Not only do you need luck, but in this country, you need to know someone!

We can never be a free society for as long as there are those who would deny us our right to vote, our right to our own religion, or to refrain from having any religion whatsoever, our right to be free from the threat of those who chose to carry firearms and threaten all of us, and our families, our right to at least a minimum of healthcare, a decent living, a livable retirement, and educational benefits that will allow all citizens to achieve the best of their intellectual level at the nation's expense and to the country's benefit!

Let's bomb Iran!

According to many in the GOP, we should just bomb Iran and get it over with (you all remember how well that strategy worked in Iraq and Afghanistan - Dick Cheney is out there now, telling us almost every day). Hell, if we are going to solve all of our relationships with other countries in this manner, because it obviously has worked so well in the past, let's also bomb Mexico, Venezuela, and maybe, Cuba, North Korea, and why not go for the big ones, China and Russia,too, among others? Maybe Canada deserves a bomb also, since they have Universal Health Care (and they gave us Ted Cruz)!
