Make your voice heard.

Back in August I took the time to sit down and write to one of our senators from Oklahoma. As many of you may remember Sen. Coburn R.OK proposed his budget cuts which included cuts to Veterans Affairs. I went to Dr. Coburn’s website and sent him my feelings on this issue. Well this last […]

Happy Pre-Turkey Day!……

Thought I would wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving early….. Hopefully everyone will have a GREAT Holiday – Gobble up the Turkey, but don’t be a Turkey!….  Enjoy the people and family you share it with, even if you don’t enjoy them in particular……  Required Holidays can be confusing and stressful if you let them – […]

November 22, 1963…..

…. at 12:30 p.m., CST, 48 years ago today, The Industrial/Military Complex took over this Country with the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy…. The Military got the War they wanted, and the Industry Barons got the Power they wanted…. It has been downhill ever since for our Used-to-Be Great Nation right to the Irreversible […]

MR Coroner 11/08/11

Our office has just been alerted of the death of boxing legend “Smokin’” Joe Fraiser. From the “Thrilla in Manilla” to the “Fight of the Century” in Madison Square Garden, Joe was one of the most dynamic sports figures in the 1970’s.

Is it Really that bad?

If we believe the media, “Gas Prices are too High, People are not traveling as much” “The Job Market is the worst it has been since the ’30s And people do not have money” Etc. Well I say that it is BS. Traveling down the highways of our nation, there is more Traffic than ever […]
