Curmudgeon Corner - Simply Put ...

My Rooney thoughts for November 11, 2014

Today, one hundred years ago, at the exact time of 1100hrs the Great War came to an end. It was thought to be a war that would end all wars.  It was a war in which men learned to use machines of destruction, to kill almost a whole generation of young men. It was only thought to be the war that would end all wars.  Simply put, it did not.

Curmudgeon Corner - Not voting, Don't complain

My Rooney thoughts for November 9, 2014

The off-year elections of 2014 are over.  As everyone knows by now, the Republicans took control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate.  The reason for this is believed to be that only one-third of the eligible voters voted.  Where the heck was the voter trying to meet his house payment?  Where were the voters living below the poverty level?  Where was the voter that works three jobs to put food on the table?  You gotta vote folks,…

Curmudgeon Corner - The Politics of Ebola

Curmudgeon Corner

My Rooney thoughts for October 19, 2014

It never fails!  Some weeks ago when the press began reporting the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, our government went to great lengths to assure the American people Ebola won’t reach our shores.  WRONG!

Suddenly, Ebola was present in America, in Dallas, Texas.  (Apparently Ebola didn’t affect the Dallas Cowboys who went to Seattle and taught the Northwest who still is the toughest state in the Union.)  And, our…
