"Never Talk About Your Feelings." Red Forman for President 2020!

Sorry, but M3 cracks me the hell up. Chatting on our cellphones last night, with terrible reception. This may not be funny to you, as the whole Red Forman for President thing has been played out, but remember... I don't give a shit what you think. 😆 Just kidding, of course. See how this works? The call made me laugh. Writing this post made me laugh. Thinking of you shaking your head at us & rolling your eyes like Stacy sort of did when I played this for her, makes me smile. It's a win,...


Episode 14 - Nothing but nonsense, like Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr.

For real? Mike Tyson & Roy Jones Jr. will be putting on an exhibition bout on September 12th. An 8- round exhibition, but of course they're talking lotsa' smack about knocking each other out. Pay Per View for charity, as I understand it, but still...I won't watch it. It is, however, just the type of nonsense I need to chat about today. It's been a strange summer for everyone, with so much change and so much to think about. I just haven't been feeling the creative vibes the last several...

I see love everywhere I go lately too, like Spring has really sprung, despite the global pandemic...and it makes me smile. Anyway, Mom & I...


JFK - A Tax Cut They Can Understand

Excerpts from JFK's Remarks Before the American Society of Newspaper Editors on April 19, 1963. JFK discusses his position on Federal Government, and that it is NOT a remote bureaucracy.

It's a very complex machine, but the concept is not that difficult. We are a hybrid economy, both capitalism & socialism. Get over it, and get...
