Piling On

Posted on 29 February 2012

In the world of professional sports, when players pile on top of one another, there usually is a penalty to pay.  But, in the United States of America, when corporations pile on top of overburdened taxpayers, Big Business gets off Scot-free each and every time. Consider, if you will, the price of gas.  Even before […]

All Locked Up

Posted on 29 February 2012

Our economic tailspin has impacted nearly everyone and everything in the nation, from once-mighty manufacturing facilities forced to close their doors to municipalities compelled to lay off employees, including police officers.   Even schools are not exempt from the economic fallout.

The Mayan Calendar: What’s That About?

Posted on 24 February 2012

It’s 2012 and if you take to heart what conspiracy theorists, doomsayers, and religious groups are saying, the world is going to end on December 21 of this year.  We need to get to work uncovering some of those Cold War bomb shelters, but we may have to do some remodeling; we’re going to need […]

Posted on 15 February 2012

The Kid from Baldwin

Posted on 12 February 2012

With each new day that dawns, we awake to some fresh new hell a la the economy, a corrupt and uncaring government, and the latest antics of celebrities whose behavior crosses the line into the criminal and who, due to their fame, get away with all manner of crimes and misdemeanors.   All of this […]
