My MacArthur Moment

I am pleased to announce my return.

As I stated in an earlier post, I was having technological issues posting to my blog. This was followed by doing some writing for Western Journalism and then a job change.

However, I am armed with a new tablet and an internet connection. So, I will be posting again and look to grow my blog.

Moving Day…

Sad to say, I am moving my blog to another location.

Computer issues on my work laptop have made posting to WordPress a virtual impossibility for anything beyond text — which takes all of the fun out of it.

I will leave this blog up and running (and if I can get an upgrade on my browser) in the hopes that I can return one day; but in the mean time, I will start posting here if you enjoyed what I wrote —

(See I can’t even do a hyperlink now.)

If you want to join me over there then use this link —

If not, feel free to “like” my articles or share them with whomever as you please.

Now, in the words of a great general, “I shall return!”

Involuntary Vacation

Have you ever had an involuntary vacation?

Well, that is what happened to me. I was forced to take an involuntary vacation because my computer locked up on me. Since it is a work laptop. I had to take it into the helpdesk — talk about an oxymoron — and they were soooo “helpful” in getting it fixed. Basically, they ended up re-imaging my laptop when they couldn’t figure out another solution.

In the meantime, what does that mean for me? Well, for starters, I am stuck using Internet Explorer 8 with no ability to upgrade or no ability to download another browser such as Firefox which is what I had been using to post here.

WordPress is not displaying properly. Right now, the only option of the formatting toolbar is spell check. The other buttons are there, but I have no idea of what they are until the alt tags display. The menus on the left side of the screen shift right regardless of the link I select.

So, I have to work on a solution to make it easy and semi-convenient to post. Bear with me and, in the words of that great actor (note sarcasm here) — “I’ll be back” to my normal posting schedule soon enough.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie — As told by Democrats

With the recent bankruptcy filed by Detroit, I realized that it is a major city that has been run entirely by Democrats since 1962. So, what happens when the Democrats run a major U.S. city without substantive opposition?

I think that you will notice a disturbing trend (or two).

Liberals, Racism, and America

In light of the Zimmerman verdict, liberals in America have once again played the overused race card. There are many examples of true racism such as:

  • Back in the mid-19th century when Democrats dressed up in white sheets, burning crosses, and lynching blacks.
  • Plessy v/s Ferguson
  • Emmitt Till being murdered for whistling at a white woman and the murderers being acquitted
  • Medgar Evers being assassinated

Those are examples of what real racism is. What we have today…not so much.
