Who has an opinion? (BLW Contributor)

Do you have an opinion? Well, yeah, who doesn’t? Opinions are important, and we actually need them. Without opinions, how could we make up our minds about things? For instance, when I have an opinion about something I hear, I learn more about it, then I draw a conclusion about the validity of it. Is it true? Is it right? Do I agree or disagree with it?

With social media such as it is, opinions are flung around like fleas from a shaking hound dog. Opinions come from our perspective of the world around us, and social media allows us to be more aware of that world than we were in the past. When I was a kid I knew nothing about politics and didn’t care. The subject was rarely discussed in our home, so the only time I was exposed to a political conversation was in the Social Studies class…

Reflecting upon the election, because, now I care. Kind of.

1

Word's that rhyme and keep with the time... or don't

There isn’t anything that I hate more than politics. Am I blue? Am I red? Do I really care? But I still find myself asking questions and looking back on the last election. No doubt, someone is going to get offended by this.

At first, I just saw the election as just another election. Some dude was going to become president and I wasn’t going to care. I didn’t really mind Obama. I mean, I didn’t love the guy, but I thought his wife was amazing. Secretly, I wish she ran. If there ever would be a wonderful first woman president, it would be her. (I love you Michelle)

But then people started announcing that they were running. Hillary announced and I just kind of ignored her and didn’t take her seriously. I mean, her smile was freakin weird. Some of the things she did were just odd and unnatural.

It is our eldest son’s debut as the featured lead conductor of the famed symphonic orchestra’s Christmas concert that started at 6:00 pm. It was now 6:19 pm as I waited for my wife, Geneva

For 41-years of our marriage, I have accepted knowingly she will always be late, except when our two children were born one and two weeks early.

As she rushed into the building huffing and puffing with several grandchildren in tow, trying to keep up with her.

I began to reminisce about everything I love about Geneva as she ran towards me. I saw every reason why I love her, and I will always overlook her ability to be late even for her first borns concert conducting debut.

As she approached, out of breath, I kissed her passionately. She looked stunned as did the grandchildren. She began to apologize, and when she finished, I told my…

Life With Boys (BLW Contributor)

Wrapped In Chaos

Remember in grade school when us girls used to think boys were weird, gross or had cooties? Well..after having 2 boys, I can say that they are an interesting breed. They ARE weird and sometimes gross!

There are things/traits I have come to learn and never would have known until now. Here are the top 10 things I’ve learned about boys under 5 yrs old:

1. Boys like to stick things up their nose or in their ears. Why? I have no clue. See exhibit A.


2. Boys are messy..like really messy! My house gets messier faster than I can clean it. I swear a tornado blows through my house every day.

3. Boys are whiny and cry babies..more than little girls. Seriously. My daughter was needy when she was little, but never an emotional wreck like my two boys.
4. Boys are very hands-on and like to touch EVERYTHING…

On the Electoral College – Are you sure you want to reform the Electoral College?

Pure Blather

Last time, for those of you not paying attention or somehow reluctant to scroll down and see the last post, I discussed the Electoral College and its historical background, and how it means we don’t elect our president by a direct popular vote.

There are two things to keep in mind when contemplating a reform of the system. First, changing it would require a Constitutional Amendment. You’re just not going to get enough small states (the ones that benefit from the current system) to go along and voluntarily give up influence.

Secondly, though, nowhere in the Constitution does it say how a state must choose its electors. So if one wants to try to reform the Electoral College, the way to do it is in the selection process in the individual states.

There are a two proposals that have been getting serious consideration.

RIP Carrie Fisher (BLW Contributor)

The Vintage Toy Advertiser

So sad to hear that Carrie just passed away. I know she did plenty of other great work but she’ll always remain in my heart for her role as Princess Leia. Whenever I saw her interviewed on TV she was always funny and seemed a likeable person. My thoughts go out to her family and loved ones.
