So I’m wondering, you know… When WAS that election held?

This comes up every year with me, along with a rising gorge every time I hear about “America’s Team”. Who the HELL elected the Arlington Cowboys to be “America’s Team”? Have they been given some kind of political power to … Continue reading

I should say that I had never watched a veteran’s parade, I think. Wasn’t it supposed to be a parade of veterans? This was a parade of mostly active duty soldiers and soldiers-to-be. It was very disturbing. There was a … Continue reading
