And Then –

It’s always surprising how the world changes, how my life changes, and how the things I thought would matter or would happen just don’t – and the way I thought the world would be – is not. About 4 years ago, I thought it would be so fun to be a delegate at the GOP…


One More Idea

This week, seemed ridiculous, it was ridiculous to me that Donald Trump should get the nomination for the GOP. That Reince would tell the entire RNC staff to support Trump or get out. We’re supposed to support a man who released a picture of himself hunched over a plate of taco salad while also looking…


So – Cruz is Done – but the War

I don’t think anyone is more surprised than pretty much all the Republicans in Virginia tonight, even the ones who support Donald Trump. This past week-end Trump’s representative called Ken Cucinelli the “establishment” at the Virginia GOP convention. That was weird. No really, that was super weird. Then Larry Wilmore made fun of the fact…


Fake Trump Supporters

I knew it, for the longest time I have suspected that the Democratic party was salting the Republican party in the primaries with fake Republican voters supporting Donald Trump in order to make him the nominee against Hillary in the Fall – because they believe correctly that the Trump would lose to Hillary. How do…


Of All The Things

Of all the things to be upset about, the University of Washington had to pull an infographic it posted giving advice to young women who might try out for the Women’s Cheerleading team this week at the college. You can read about it here. The reason was that the woman at the college felt it…


This Just In..

Normally, this blogger doesn’t do this anymore (post late at night on the fly – and multiple times a week!), but I was sent these two images for you all to consume. The Cruz campaign is going to focus resources in Indiana, the Kasich campaign will be focusing their resources in New Mexico and Oregon…


Accepting It All

It’s no secret that I’ve served on YR boards and worked with GOP groups for the last 5 years. What many people may not know is that I retired from service this week. There comes a point in everyone’s life where a certain stream of projects, work, a hobby, sport, etc has to end, at…


R.I.P. Prince

So sad to hear Prince died today in his home in the Twin Cities. He was a total cultural icon as well as great musician. His talent was undeniable and he had a way of making himself a conversation item as well throughout his life. I was actually talking to someone today about the period…


The Game, Work, Soup Cans, and Trumpkins

It’s a funny thing how time changes your feelings about events and trends. 8 years ago I was horrified by books like “The Game” that told men to be nasty to women in order to pick them up. And I usually thought it was the equivalent of a car crash when it happened (like oh,…


Summer Reading

A younger friend recently asked me what book they should read over the Summer, they wanted a historical book that was interesting to consume. Instead, this blogger suggested reading ‘The Vampire Lestat” by Anne Rice, who has quite a long collection of novels starting back in the 1970’s covering witches, mummys, and vampires. Click here…
