Not a fan of the Kennedy family in the least, but I can't help thinking the late JFK would be considered a moderate Republican by modern standards. This infamous quote comes to mind as I think about the refusal of Americans to go back to work without outrageous salary demands for entry level jobs with … Continue reading Ask Not What Your Country Can Do for You
Poland is determined to protect its border from “attacks by the Belarusian regime," Andrzej Duda, the Polish president, said on Tuesday. Good for this determined gentleman; wish we had this guy in our corner. He's getting an enormous amount of criticism from the liberal press for this: (This was posted several days ago but Microsoft … Continue reading On National Sovereignty
My husband and I are joined at the hip regarding politics so he shocked me last night when he expressed concern that the American version of the CCP and even moderate Republicans will prevent the Don from regaining the WH. I'd really appreciate some feedback on this topic from all of you highly intelligent members … Continue reading Can Trump be re-elected in 2024?

This reminds me of the mid-70s busing crisis in Detroit when there was every possibility I would be bussed to the ghettos and separated from my first class suburban public … Continue reading Memories…
Here we are on the morning after my contretemps last night and we've just had brunch with my interior decorator (of whom I am quite fond) and her husband who is a professor at FSU. I've never met him before but I've heard enough from my academic pal MLR to know I should avoid political … Continue reading An Addendum to SNL Post
Tonight, as we were driving to dinner, we pulled up next to a Lincoln Navigator with the following bumper stickers on both the fender and the back window: "I'm proud to be a Democrat.

I thought the Carter administration was destructive but as my husband reminded me, we, as a country weren't quite used to such incompetency so we paid a high price in the 70s - a recession. Here's a positive note that I've noticed in the market and … Continue reading Random Observations
