The More Things Change

So it now seems that it is the Republicans who are the great friends and protectors of Medicare. As Bill Clinton would say, "Give me a break!" Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson must be rolling over in their graves. It was the Republican Party that fought tooth and nail to oppose government-sponsored health care for older Americans. And now, in the current health care debate Republicans are saying "Look to the Republican Party to preserve Medicare. It's the Democrats who want to gut the program."… Continue

"Why, When He Worked Here He Was Never Anything But A Smart-Ass White Boy!"

Last week, the Nobel Prize Committee announced its decision to award the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to President Barack Obama. Many Americans were shocked. "What has he actually done? What concrete things has he accomplished to promote peace among the nations?" I would ask: Isn't it possible that because President Obama is one of our own -- he is a fellow American -- we are incapable of appreciating his greatness? Isn't it possible that only foreigners, as outsiders, can objectively measure the… Continue

Science vs. Nature

Man's nature, I mean. I've read some amazing things going on in the science world. I'm sure Zendog sees it as the beginning of the Great Conspiracy to begin human experimentation, but as paranoid and cynical as I am I can't see it as bad.

They are finding molecules that fight viruses now. Imagine that! Antibiotics have been a dead end and everyone has known it, yet we haven't been able to turn away from the cliff. The drug companies love the fact that antibiotics gradually fail and… Continue

Proud to be an American!

I got an e-mail from the President this morning -- he keeps me up-to-date on his activities and thoughts, you know! Just have to share this, because I think it perfectly expresses what he's all about, and I'm so proud to be an American these days! I can't imagine how anyone can find fault with this letter, but I'm sure many will, not because of the content of the letter but because of their pre-conceived feelings about him. I'm putting it out there and hoping that it will be read with an open… Continue

Thought I'd Start The Day With A Joke:.Hope you Enjoy!! and have a great day.


1. On Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping."

(But that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)

2. On a bag of Fritos: "You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside."

(Evidently, the shoplifter special.)

3. On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."

(And how would that be?)

4. On some Swanson frozen dinners: "Serving suggestions: Defrost."

(But it's just a… Continue

What is the measure of what government should do with our money?

I'm curious what people think. The Constitution had some clear ideas about it, all based on common sense requirements. The need to raise an army, deliver the mail. I would say that the whole document reeks of common sense.

But there really aren't any good "except" clauses. Like, "except when to do so would bankrupt the citizenry". There's no real limitations put in place on spending, only that laws must be made to levy new taxes. Much of law is tax law. New taxes, new levies make up… Continue

I choose to be positive from now on......

If you have something positive to say....then I am all ears from now on! I refuse to listen to negative and hate filled diatribe that does no one any good. I am in no way saying that any one hear on TBD would be hate filled or constantly negative on purpose. What I am saying is I choose from now on to only respond to positive posts and participate only in fun filled, thought provoking dialog. That's what I enjoyed about TBD in the first place....how it made my heart feel good....too good at… Continue
