Happy Fourth of July…celebrating the good in this country

happy bday america 2014

We all spend alot of time complaining about our country. We see it and we are never too busy to point out her flaws, but on this day let’s talk about 3 things that are good about our country:
1. Good food: we are a collection of diverse ethnic groups and each group has brought something wonderful to the collective plate.
2. Good government: even though we are caught up in dysfunction the mechanisms put in place by the Constitution still work.
3. Good people: this country has had and still has challenges in how our people are treated, but even in the worst of times there have been people who have put it all on the line for the greater good of this country.
Enjoy your holiday and celebrate the good!

What’s wrong with Serena Williams?


What happened to Serena Williams. NBC described her behavior as “bizarre” or was she just sick? Why won’t the media giver her the benefit of the doubt? doesn’t she deserve that?

When did Hillary Clinton become Mitt Romney?


Hillary Clinton has not declared her candidacy for president, but she is the talk of the political world. She said when she and President Clinton left the White House they were “flat broke”. No one in their right mind really thought they were broke. She exaggerated in her zeal to appear that she was just like us “regular folks”. She is not. She is rich like most people who run for president. The key is to be comfortable with your wealth and stop the charade. Mitt Romney got crucified not because of his wealth, but because of his disdain for the 47%. He was out of touch with regular folks, and so is Clinton, but the difference is Clinton was once a member of the regular folk club, and maybe just maybe she might learn how to relate to them again.
