Reconsidering “turmoil, time and trouble” and the evidence continues as “so so?” The obvious answer: “same old, same old,” or the reality of the age-old question “What’s New?”
My intention for this soliloquy was to talk about the coming new look of the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS). Because of a deadline, it was impossible to predict the next associate justice.
For some time now predictions have been circulating that another civil war is on the horizon. Yes, the USofA is transitioning again to “We the People.”
As bulletins flashed five days ago that an active shooter was shot-gunning The Annapolis Capital newsroom, my heart sank, along with others who have enjoyed the excitement of deadline writing.
Much time and money has dominated public consciousness of late. Reasons are varied. The main spark has been politics; and the art of compromise has been nowhere to be found.
I knew it. I just might have to open a crystal ball shop, make free predictions. Well, dare I brag a bit, I must be a prophet. Even though I have an admitted coffee addiction, reading the tea leaves is becoming rather easy.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Most certainly since photographs began to be featured in newspapers around in the beginning of the 1900s. Then came the avalanche of images on film and every type of video equipment of today.
There’s no denying insidious movements to destroy basic American traditions are well at work. Alarming signs are everywhere, disaster looms and, frankly, danger is disguised as political resistance.
It is no secret. Skullduggery is alive and well in the political arena. Surprised? Of course not. It can be a bit surprising at times, particularly when opponents have been quasi-friends for long periods at work “for the public good.”
In preparation for this historic day, it was appropriate to look back 68 years and refresh memories from the Korean War, not in the least a police action.
Admittedly carpetbaggers have invaded The Commonwealth under the opened eyes of native borns in the Old Dominion. And, days of the Virginia Gentleman and Gentlewoman could now be headed to oblivion.
A good question for today: who’s going to be the next whiz kid who says she or he knows how to change the weather, I mean turn on or off rain?
In a state surrounded by others allowing concealed carry weapons, time has come again to question Maryland’s belligerence to permitting good citizens to pack heat.
The bulletin crawled across the bottom of the screen early in the morning. Alerts were immediate on my iPhone. Reports of a Texas High School shooting. No information available at that moment.
Among the magnificent benefits of our technological advances is the ability to block unwanted, or any at all, telephone calls. In this gregarious season of political obsessing, eluding messages can be easy.
It is rather apparent that North Korea’s little imp not only blinked but has discovered that posterior osculation is the road to peace and saving himself from annihilation.
There’s been a lot conversation among all the mugwumps and barking moonbats that former cabinet officers become consultants for foreign governments and receive incredible fees and enjoy riches forever.
And, now for some good news. But first, I don’t want to hear any piffle about starting a paragraph or sentence with “And.” It’s a perfectly good locution, plus this is not an English class paper.
Somehow it’s not likely that dancing around Maypoles will occur today. There was a time when May First was a celebratory activity in public schools.
Debate over medicinal marijuana continues to weave its way into modern approval. A number of states say it’s okay, while a majority, not including Maryland, one of the Original 13 colonies, has legalized pot use. Now the fight proceeds whether dispensaries will be among downtown shops.
Maybe, just maybe, time has come to inoculate all the crazies out there with computer chips. Certainly alarms will explode with violent repercussions about personal civil rights. Somehow a solid program could be developed.
Wonders never cease, especially when considering that the state of history teaching in schools is lacking big time. Is it good to not educate the populace on the past?
Where are all the public demonstrations, the students who walk out of classes, or the alleged caring lawmakers who echo the same old chants about guns?
Might as well be straightforward here. With all the winks and nods, the evidence is rather obvious, the coup and overthrow attempt is in full gear.
All this talk about privilege has me commiserating. Foolish talk has been around forever. The latest has nearly reached the zenith of idiocy, the acme of worthlessness.
Music is swirling in the air. Yes, joyous strains of marching bands, even high stepping and recollections of John Philip Sousa, the recognized king of brass and drums and so on.
On this grand third day of April, some leftover scraps from what has historically been April Fool’s Day. Remember, please, it’s not courteous to describe any one as a dullard, dope or ignoramus.
