About Me

I am a fulltime chaperone to an aging pit-bull. She loves pigs-ears purchased from Stewerts Meat Market, long walks anywhere, feeding time and tummy rubs. We both enjoy disc golf, (golf with baskets instead of holes and fancy frisbees instead of golf balls), but for entirely different reasons. Fortunately for all she never acquired a taste for frisbees but she is a sucker for thrown rope-toys and balls. Her goal in life is to see an end to the nuisance that causes some toys to squeak when pressed by her chaperone. After the squeak has been eliminated, the toy is safe to be played with by anyone else because regardless of price it holds no further interest for her. Lastly: that is my real last name! I can get away with calling myself a card carrying chick and often get a chuckle out of folks when I do that.

Greed vs Patriotism

Righties don't seem to understand that greed can in some cases be bad for America. They claim that in a free market system one should be allowed to maximize profits in any way the law allows, that this is good for America.

My counter to this: How many of our soldiers paid the ultimate price to support greed? When we got hit at Pearl Harbor, when we got hit on 9/11, American citizens gave up their livelihoods, signed on the dotted line, held up their right hand and swore an oath to defend our nation. They did this to defend mom and apple pie and democracy. They did NOT do this to defend some bastard's right to take away mom's apple pie or her democracy.
