Sometimes, you just have to push back at people that keep pushing you. It is one of those things that show that while you might be tolerant of people acting the way that they at you are only going to let it go so far. The past couple of months, President Trump has been accused …

You would like to think that if you were in a real bind that when people came to help that they would know what they were doing and bring everything that they needed to help you properly. If you woke up one day and saw that six inches of snow had fallen, and your neighbor …

You can pick anyone you want to do just about any job you want. You can hire anyone to mow your lawn for example. The problem is that you have to accept the consequences if your pick goes totally haywire. For example, if you hire that kid to mow your lawn and they don’t cut …

I’m sorry, but last I checked, if you are young and pretty much getting ready to do anything that costs more than the price of a video game system, there’s a strong chance that you need someone as a financial backer. Hell, I remember being well into my twenties and wanting to come home on …

There are certain things you just cannot do, even if they might be good ideas in theory, on account of where you live. For example, my stepfather, a former civil engineer in the military, still lives in northern Michigan. He has a generator that he has hooked to the side of his house that is …

By and large, a lot of people aren’t political junkies. They don’t live and breathe their whole lives based on political issues. They just want to make sure that their little corner of the world is taken care of and then they just don’t want to bother anyone. However, there are people that have to …

You aren’t required to give money to anyone that you don’t think it would be right to give money to. For example, there was a relative of mine who, despite getting paid two days earlier in the workweek than I did at the time, would be flat broke by the time I got paid on …

For the most part, I try to stay off of social media. While I do admit that I have a social media account, I don’t think I have more than maybe fifteen or so people on it. They are all people that I have known for years, some going back to high school. My security …

Email is such a wonderful thing. I remember when I was in the military it was literally my lifeline to the outside world. People that I would otherwise call once a week when I was in the United States would get an email back and forth where we would usually answer two or three times …

When I get something as a gift or money that I do not expect, I like to know where the heck it came from. If a family member suddenly handed me five thousand dollars, I would want to see the lottery ticket that caused them to have such an amount of money. Otherwise, you might …

Although I cannot imagine the exact situation that the good people of Texas are going through right now, I can definitely empathize because I grew up in northern Michigan. One time, when I was about thirteen or so, we had this massive cold snap that went on for days. Freezing rain made roads almost unusable …

One thing that you need to do when listening to people that claim to be experts on something is to see how often they change their tune on a particular topic. If you have a doctor that tells you it is healthy to eat a certain type of food, for example, see what they said …

One thing about people and politics, you have to keep folks happy or else they can turn on you without any notice whatsoever. That being said, that doesn’t always mean you have to give people everything that they want. You simply cannot do that, someone will inevitably get mad about something. The key is to …

You always have to be careful of who you align yourself with and if they are going to stand beside you because they feel it is the right thing or if they are looking to get something out of it. We have all had that one person in our lives that we thought was someone …

People, you cannot trust Joe Biden any farther than you can throw him. It is a fact on par with the notion that water is wet. At the end of the day, I am shocked that he hasn’t lied about his own name. Now, there are some things that all office holders like to say …

It used to be that you couldn’t persecute people in the United States based solely on how they felt. Now, it seems that Democrats want to do that to anyone that doesn’t go along with what they want. Now, in certain instances, it does make sense to wear masks in public right now. The problem …

People like to think that when someone ends their time as President of the United States that they ride off into the sunset and go live in the mountains or something. Hardly. While they can’t push the buttons they once did in terms of government, they can still be great in terms of organizing. Don’t …
