Trying to keep a sense of humor about the upcoming election

| October 23, 2016

It has NOT been an enjoyable campaign season … a very long year and a half! Citizens of voting age in the United States (see Twiitter comment below) voluntarily head to the polls to decide who they want or more appropriately DON’T want as their president for the next 4 years. I doubt I’m alone […]

What will another 51 years do for society?

| August 30, 2016

I mentioned Paul Harvey’s broadcast on the 50th anniversary last year, but his 1965 thoughts are worth hearing again in this election year … not that we’re even talking about social issues.

My early gut call is that the Tea Party groups will run many of the incumbent Democrats out of office and give Republicans the House of Representatives.  In fact, I’m not really following the House race and believing it […]

An Election Day lesson for college students

| November 2, 2010

Once upon a time in 2008, there was a great “get out the vote” drive helping young people, less civic minded urban folks and busy college students to  register to vote. Democrats in particular canvased college campuses going dorm door to dorm door with the necessary paperwork so that students would be prepared to vote. […]
