Real men cook

Most men can cook and be great at it. It’s simply a question of jumping in there and doing it, with plenty of great recipes, in books and online, to get you started. From there it’s simply getting in the kitchen regularly, experimenting with recipes, honing your skills and developing good food instincts.

Being from a certain generation, I learned to cook from my Mother. From around age 5, I would hang around the kitchen and watch he...

A very stupid and bad video

4 American’s and 10 Libyans are dead in Libya because ofriots blamed on a vile, ignorant and bigoted anti-Islamic short video of 13.51minutes.  The video, apparently, atrailer for a movie?  Has been on utubefor several months with little attention until an Egyptian satellite TV channeldecided to incite riot with it and so it did from Egypt to Libya to another 12countries in the Middle East and Asia with no end in site.

Out of simpl...

"Culture of Life"

“Culture of Life”

It is amazing how inventive we are and how words and phrases can be so easily manipulated to advance one’s agenda, valid or not. The anti-choice people, those who favor personhood amendments and a return to the pre-Roe v. Wade world of abortion being illegal in all cases–including rape, incest and the life of the mother–have a new slogan: “Culture of Life”. I must say, it sounds great! Who can possibly be ...

Rape is RAPE

Rape is RAPE!

Rape in specifically and legally defined as “the commission of unlawful sexual intercourse or unlawful sexual intrusion without consent” (important to note here that gender or marital status is no longer a controlling factor. While in the past a husband could not be charged or convicted of raping his wife now he can. In addition people of the same gender can rape each other, men raping men or women raping women, as well as women raping men). Con...

We are not all the same?

We are not all the same?

On July 19, 2012 Ann Romney in a TV interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, when asked about Mitt Romney releasing more tax returns, said “We have given all you people need to know”. I will not jump to the obvious conclusion just because Robin Roberts is African American. I’m pretty sure that was not Ann Romney’s intent. Her statement is substantially more disturbing and insulting than just a race issue. This is a perfect...

Bloviating Ignoramus

Bloviating Ignoramus

George Will and I don’t agree on much. As a matter of fact, we probably don’t agree on most things. However, I was feeling the love when I heard him refer to Donald Trump as the “Bloviating Ignoramus”. Overwhelmed by a sense of well being, albeit temporary, I rushed to the computer to share the good news and pay the love forward.

There is very little comfort available in today’s rude, mediocre, self-absorbed and voyeuris...

Solution = Single Payer

Solution = Single Payer

 The current contraceptives tempest in a teapot, left me no choice but to write a blog.  The current year is 2012 and the vast majority of us (99%) use contraceptives.  Important to note right here that this is not just a women issue. Most men are delighted not to have to wear a condom to prevent pregnancy when in a committed relationship, and no STD issues or the possibility of such is a consideration.

It’s bad enough that we h...

Home for New Year's Eve.

Home for New Year’s Eve!

Although I remember New Year Eve’s out with all its rituals, drinking and “Joyful” parties designed to bring in the new year in with others, some you know and some you have no desire to know and will never see again, for the past 15 years the option of staying home was and is my first and only choice by far.

2011 was not a particularly good year, personally or as a human on this small blue/green planet and there is ...

Jobs, Fairness and the American Way

Fairness and the American Way

With 25-40 million American looking for jobs and/or a full time job, the issue here is simple: Where are the jobs?

Taking the Republican premise of lower taxes to the “Job Creators” will result in the jobs at face value, the obvious issue and problem is: where are those jobs after 10 years of lower taxes?  It is peculiar that during the Clinton years with higher taxes for the upper brackets, 23 million jobs were created, t...

"Super" Committee - Really?

“Super” Committee – Really?

Surprise, surprise the Super Committee created by Congress and the Senate to reach a deficit reduction plan, has failed to reach agreement and put forth a plan.  And as the game blame is in full swing, the bottom line is that they failed, as did Congress as a whole, to get to a deal, any deal. The pitiful fact is that we, the American people, would be delighted to see any plan or proposal for us to look at.  Guess it wa...
