Sunday Stew

Just some random thoughts and musings about different events shaping the course of discussion these days in the United State of America.

The Trayvon Martin murder is a tragedy and that is what it is ... a tragic, senseless murder by a person who probably shouldn't have been able to have a handgun. This person used their own fear and prejudice to murder a teenager walking back home from a convenience store.

No real "Cinderellas" this year in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, unless you consider Louisville a "Cinderella".

Former VP Dick Cheney just underwent a heart transplant... maybe it will lead him to becoming a real human being now.

 The GOP Presidential primary continues to go  on ... and on ...and on ... and on ...

Gas prices were OVER $4.00 a gallon in 2008, before dropping back under $2.00 a gallon roughly six months later after George W. Bush was out of office... don't count on that happening again because President Barack Obama is not viewed in a favorable light by the major oil conglomerates or the Wall Street speculators who are responsible for the surge in the gas prices in recent months.

Baseball season begins in two weeks.

Why is it that right wingers in this country are trying to justify the murder of Trayvon Martin?

Lacy J. Banks, a great Chicago sports writer and columnist, passed away this past week at the age of 68 years old. Banks covered the Chicago Bulls for years, including the two three-peat runs in the 1990's.

 Perhaps the NRA needs to look in the mirror following the tragic murder of Trayvon Martin as a result of the "stand your ground" law that they helped push through in the state of Florida. The fact is when the right to bear arms law was enacted in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution, it was designed for a standing army to defend against a possible takeover by the King of England's army in response to the colonies forming this country following the American Revolution. We do not need a return to the days of the Wild West.

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

Have a great weekend and God Bless America!


  1. The NRA likes what it sees when it looks in the mirror and see a bloodthirsty lobbying group.

  2. Sadly, had Trayvon Martin been white this would have been a huge story from day one.
