Police Story: Part One

Recently I was waiting at one of my favorite sleazy food joints when I saw an unattended police car. Walking around it, I marveled at what it had on both the interior and exterior. From the outside, it looked more like a hostile deep-space probe than a vehicle designed with terrestrial public safety in mind. It bristled with antennae and bump-like fairings that you normally see on military aircraft. If it had wings, it’s a safe bet some sort of weaponry and/or surveillance device would be attached to it.

Tom Petty. Greg Allman. David Bowie. Can you believe the amazing amount of talent that we have lost recently? I find it very sad that there is no longer any hope of smoking a joint with Tom, or doing shots with Greg, or sharing a wild evening in bed with David and his super hot, smoking sexy wife. N…

Democrats in Orange Jump Suits and Steel Cuffs

Even I underestimated the effect that the election of President Trump would have on the Democrat Party, the "Deep State" and establishment politicians.  Their arrogance and overconfidence in the "certainty" of Hillary Clinton's election was rewarded with being caught red-handed in the biggest p…

MY HISTORY WITH IMMIGRATION

In my youth, I was smarter than teachers. A street kid who always had money. I was invited to drop out of high school, because I never attended anyway. Because I was a child, living as an adult, I perused the industrial parks, looking for work as an apprentice machinist or anything I could lie my wa…

Are We Falling Prey to our own Arrogance?

If you had told an Afghan woman in the 1960s that her granddaughters would wear a veil she would have laughed you out of the door. Women in Kabul wore skimpy dresses, make up and high heels. The occasional headscarf or even Burka could be seen, but was very uncommon. Out in the countryside women wo…

Remembering Teachers

I recently re-read a certain book given to me by my 6th-grade teacher, and I got to thinking about all of the various "teachers" that I had in my young life.
