There were a million things I could blog about this month. There is so much going on in the world. Unfortunately, it is mostly negative, and I’m not in the mood. The high-school students protesting for gun control is admirable, but naïve. At least they put down the phones for a while. The part I found ironic is that while many are demanding gun control for their safety, a large number of teenagers are making threats to shoot-up their schools. Even if you control the guns, there’re other maniacs out there making bombs. People will murderer whether they have a gun or not. Two of the forty threats made on our local schools were made by students carrying knives. Whatever the threat, it’s still going to cost them twenty years in jail. Time to start penalizing irresponsible parents as well.

The 2016 Presidential campaign was a difficult one for most Americans. The main problem stemmed from the candidates. It was a matter of deciding who the worse to direct a struggling America forward. It wasn’t a matter of choosing the best candidate, but who was the worst. The next problem stemmed from the media. They laughed that Trump was even running. How could Trump, a non-politician, possibly win? Trying to make Trump out as a joke was the media’s mistake.

A half century following the terror of Russian ballistic missiles reaching the United States from Cuba we’re being spooked that a half-pint punk from North Korean will direct his Radio Shack missiles at Hawaii.

I couldn’t think of a generic, family-friendly blog this month. Instead, I’m doing a usual, and writing about something in the news I find annoying. Since you’ll probably find my views irritating as well, you might want to skip to the final line.

I recently learned that fans of the show Games of Thrones were rushing to buy Siberian Huskies, because they looked like some kind of wolf on the show. Knowing the vanity of people and their insane desire to be part of the fantasy of their TV world rather than face their own reality, I believed this story. I’ve never seen the show, but my son says it’s popular.

Following the shooting in Las Vegas, there was the natural search for a motive. My wife had it best when she put it simply: “The man was crazy. There isn’t a cure or understanding crazy.” I wasn’t surprised to see the call for gun control again. I ha...

Families lost everything during the 1930’s Depression. Children were lucky to be fed, let alone get new shoes or a new set of clothes. They were forced to be resilient enough to fend for themselves. They grew up to be what we now refer to as the “greatest generation ever.” These kids grew up to be the adults that fought and won the Second World War. What are our kids growing up to be? They spend all day inside playing with their devices. We spoil them so much, they can’t do anything on their own. Can your child change the tire on the car you gave them?

worthiness. It doesn’t help just to say the words. I gave up worrying about my death years ago. It’s an unworthy waste of energy. Everyone dies. The real worry is ensuring you live your life as best you can while you’re alive. Nor am I suspicious person. I do, however, believe in karma; that whatever comes arounds goes around, or whatever goes around comes around. I believe that, because I’ve seen the proof.
