Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

I hadn't paid much attention to the news the past few weeks--just too tired and focused on health issues. So imagine my surprise when I get back to it two days ago, and all the stations had breaking news about the attempted takeover and trashing of the U.S. Capitol building! Of course, the event's been … Continue reading Narcissism is a weapon, & storming the Capitol building in D.C. was a result…

The Great Lady has gone today. And tomorrow, the really sick & twisted games begin…

photo from commons.wikimedia.org I saw a brief blip when I was scrolling through YouTube earlier (which I mostly had on for noise) and it said that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was gone. I didn't react at first, just read the clip title and moved on. I suppose I wasn't ready to think on that. I just … Continue reading The Great Lady has gone today. And tomorrow, the really sick & twisted games begin…

A police reckoning has arrived (from Square Cop in a Round World’s blog)

I was wondering when I'd find more than a sound-byte or photo regarding police and what they think about all this that's going on: the riots, Mr. Floyd's death, the "bad apples." Well, there's a voice out there I like to read, and though sometimes I'm not sure how I feel about what she's saying … Continue reading A police reckoning has arrived (from Square Cop in a Round World’s blog)

Q#123: Why do many Democratic voters (seem to) think that only an “old white guy” can beat D.T.?

Yes, I admit I'm a little bitter about the results. I wanted Warren to come out ahead of everyone. I've mentioned it several times online since voting for her before I went to work. But more than that, I'm waiting for the jokes about Democratic hypocrisy to start: the party that keeps going on about … Continue reading Q#123: Why do many Democratic voters (seem to) think that only an “old white guy” can beat D.T.?

Adopted Q #112: What could the top military brass think about the current white house occupant, a.k.a., the person they ultimately take their orders from?

I know, it's perhaps a simplification, but at the same time, I'd been wondering about this particular topic for some time. Considering the United States' reach in the world, and where our troops and such are deployed, I'm sure there's some strange reactions going on down the chain of command when things are announced and … Continue reading Adopted Q #112: What could the top military brass think about the current white house occupant, a.k.a., the person they ultimately take their orders from?

Family has come to the house, or when you realize you’re a true introvert…

My past few blog-less days were spent frantically cleaning my house and yard (mostly the house) as much as I could and then having my mom and stepdad over. They got to see my new place for the first time. I kept joking "commence the judgment call" all week prior to my friends, but it … Continue reading Family has come to the house, or when you realize you’re a true introvert…

The Assassination of Julius Caesar: A People’s History of Ancient Rome, by Michael Parenti

My Copy: 9781565849426 (image from bn.com) If there's one book about Ancient Rome that should be added to someone's bookshelf, it's most definitely this one. The Assassination of Julius Caesar is not a thick book, but contains so much that should at least be analyzed and taken into consideration. I love the title; it's perfect … Continue reading The Assassination of Julius Caesar: A People’s History of Ancient Rome, by Michael Parenti

The Inquisitive “mile”: re-tackling questions #076-100 (& more below)

Well, it took two and three-fourths years, but I definitely hit the 100 questions which were one of the main reasons I started this blog (general stuff and book reviews were the others). Of course, I have a couple thousand more rattling around in the noggin, so don't be surprised as the numbers just keep … Continue reading The Inquisitive “mile”: re-tackling questions #076-100 (& more below)
