I Got the Car Shoppin’ Blues…

So I have a Nissan Versa. It’s several years old, and it’s starting to have issues.  Like the axle leak the dealership fixed, and now the damn thing squeaks every time I make a turn. The gas cap is no longer attached to the car, so I’m forever having to drop and dig it out … Continue reading

We Value Your Opinon. Please Complete Our Survey.

Seems like I’m always being asked to complete a survey.  Go to a website? I’m asked to complete a survey. Buy a burger? There’s a number to call to complete a survey and in return get free food during my next visit. Call a business? I’m asked to hang on after the call ends to … Continue reading

Are We Animal Lovers? Or Users of Animals?

The Double-Edged Sword of Freedom

Today we in the US celebrate the birth of our nation, and we remember the cost to our ancestors for winning our freedom.  Freedom and democracy have brought many positive changes to our nation and to the world. It has also allowed a small, but well-funded, vocal minority to dictate what laws will govern our … Continue reading
