Who Has the Political Power?

Posted by mcm0704 on February 26, 2018 |

  Last week I listened to a Podcast that compared the recent responses to the mass shootings to what happened following the 2012 tragedy in Sandyhook. In both cases, survivors and families of those killed made endless pleas to Congress to ban assault weapons. In both cases, Congress refused. The podcast included clips of the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends, Obama, Gay Marriage and More

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2012 |

This has been a crazy upside-down day for me. Instead of being in my office first thing to do my blog and take care of other writing-related tasks, I was headed to town to do some publicity for a show coming to the Winnsboro Center for the Arts at the end of this month. This […]

I read a good editorial in The Dallas Morning News the other day. Titled: Trimming Government, Message to Obama and Congress: Get on with it, it listed a number of ways to balance the budget. The top two suggestions: Eliminate duplicate programs Consolidate related programs Good ideas. Do you think if enough of us say […]

Wednesday’s Guest

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2012 |

Instead of my normal Wednesday’s Guest where a real live person shares something, I wanted to let some of the organizations and websites that are part of the online protest of SEPA speak up. This from Google   Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 15, 2010 |

The best news story of the decade. All 33 miners rescued from the mine in Chile after being trapped underground for over two months. Need I say more? There is a new ethics rule for Texas attorneys. They are now prohibited from having sex with their clients. So, previously it was okay to have sex […]

The Devil Made me Do it

Posted by mcm0704 on March 24, 2010 |

I wasn’t going to do it, honest. Blog about the Health Care Reform bill, that is, but these opinions just keep rattling around in my head interfering with an otherwise normal day of writing. This reform scares me as much as the one proposed by the Clinton’s, primarily because like so many other people, I […]

Right or Wrong?

Posted by mcm0704 on July 24, 2009 |

What a tangled mess this whole situation is revolving around the arrest of Harvard Professor, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. at his home in Cambridge. In case you have been on a desert island somewhere for the past week and have not heard the news, Professor Gates was arrested for disorderly conduct by Sgt. James Crowley […]

Can the President Really do This?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 1, 2009 |

The other day President Barack Obama told Rick Wagoner, CEO of General Motors, to step down. First of all, I couldn’t believe that the president would actually do that, and I was shocked that Wagoner agreed. And I can’t help but wonder what happened behind the scenes to lead to this. Wagoner’s tenure as CEO […]

The Day After

Posted by mcm0704 on January 21, 2009 |

Just like the changing of the year from one to the next, the changing of a presidential name takes some time to get used to. Several times today as I was updating WinnsboroToday.com with news, I had to stop and remind myself to write “President Obama” as opposed to “President Bush”. I suppose in time […]

Making History

Posted by mcm0704 on January 19, 2009 |

Tomorrow is an exciting day in history as we witness the swearing in of our new president, Barack Obama. It marks a great milestone for Americans, some of whom refused to let an African American into a school, let alone 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. That we have come this far is a great testament to the […]
