A Club Nobody Wants to Join…

A Club Nobody Wants to Join…

I have been down for the past 2 days.  Depression over losing a child 28 years ago set in and it will pass, but what brought it on should not surprise anyone.  A friend of mine lost her daughter two days ago. She was waiting for a heart transplant. It is quite different to lose an older child but the pain is the same for us both.  We will never get to see our children’s “what might have been” and…

Yes, People Kill People But….

Yes, People Kill People But….

Look, I do not talk about this a lot. Yes, I DO support the right of EVERY law-abiding citizen to own a gun, but mental health in this country has to be addressed.  I’m not into all this gun grabbing crap a lot of people are trying to push for,  but I see nothing wrong with flagging people who have severe behavioral disorders from getting a gun. If people are arrested for domestic violence,…

Why We Should All Read the Writings of ANY Public Figure…

Why We Should All Read the Writings of ANY Public Figure…

If you want to know what any public figure is about, read their writings. Read the books they wrote themselves. Those reveal the content of their character. If you have not read those, then don’t criticize those who have. To refuse to check out a person’s own words means that one is willing to remain willfully ignorant. They are willing to be used for that person’s gain. It doesn’t matter if that…

Why On Earth is This Tolerated?

Why On Earth is This Tolerated?

I have written much about bullying, but feel compelled address what is turning into a severe problem nation wide.  A growing number of elderly and disabled people are being attacked. Why? Because criminals view them as easy targets. I don’t want to hear about teenagers making mistakes when I’m reading about elderly people having to have plastic surgery because their facial injuries so severe.

I…

Yeah…I’ve Been Quiet…

Yeah…I’ve Been Quiet…

I haven’t posted in a while but I have been spending a lot of time reflecting on how I want to spend the rest of my life.  I managed to succeed in my first major goal of 2014 and paid off my car.  My grandson is about to turn 2.  Quite frankly today, I feel a bit on the old side. My joints have been killing me all day. Someone bashed my car on the driver side rear. My son took liquid nails for…

Troubling Thoughts from a Military Brat….

Troubling Thoughts from a Military Brat….

My father, Kenneth B. O’Neill, USAF Ret (1972) served honorably in our military for 20 years. I learned a lot from him in my youth. One of the things I learned is that if the government is going to try to pull some kind of crap on the population of the country, then it will try it as an “experiment” on military bases and/or personnel first.  We saw this occur throughout History but there is ONE…

Alternative Was Around Long Before the ’90′s in Another Form, I Think…

Call me crazy…Call me whatever you will but some of the lyrics I hear in songs I grew up on would kick ass  in a modern rock version of the same songs.

I have found a lot of songs in the weirdest places where the lyrics seemed way ahead of  their time. I can listen to this one and go straight to “Cat’s in the Cradle”, or “Wonderful” by Everclear since to me, they are songs in a parallel universe.…

I’ll Stay Single, Thank You Very Much…

I’ll Stay Single, Thank You Very Much…

When destined to be alone  it is totally best to revel in the solitude. In order to truly appreciate it, all I have to do is listen to all the couples I know when they fight over dumb crap and be glad that I don’t have to deal with their dilemmas.

I am very serious. Every couple I know either got together out of some sense of a need for a living arrangement or they got together because of outside…

Voting Will Be Reactionary This Year…

Voting Will Be Reactionary This Year…

With more and more people becoming dissatisfied with the way things are being ran in this country, I think it is safe to say that Americans are mad as hell, aren’t taking any more, and that voting will be reactionary to the past 6 years of watching this country divide in ways that we have not seen in decades.

The first error made by both parties was making sweeping changes to policies that have…

I HAVE to Become Famous Now…The WBC Needs Something to B***h About, Right?

I HAVE to Become Famous Now…The WBC Needs Something to B***h About, Right?

Note: I cut loose with the vernacular in this one. You have been warned.

Alright everyone…It is with heavy heart I must make this announcement being that I rather enjoy my boring-as-hell life.  I have to become famous for something. It doesn’t matter if it is for my not-so-eloquent prose at times, or my ranting but it is something that must be done.  We all know (if you know me well) that it…
