Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on January 15, 2016 |

First I’m going on the record to say I liked President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday night. I think he challenged all of us to work harder for a unified nation, and only the media and certain politicians decided that Obama’s remarks were aimed at specific people. Although, we do need to call people out […]

Don’t Glorify the Killers

Posted by mcm0704 on October 3, 2015 |

Like most people, I am dismayed at the latest in too many mass killings, that as President Obama said following the tragedy in Oregon, “Have become routine.” How sad is that? A friend on Facebook pointed out that there has been over 275 mass shootings so far in 2015, and I was shocked. Checking to […]

Well, last night President Obama took some drastic action in Iraq. I’d been so disconnected from the news for so long, I had no idea things had been heating to a boiling point over there. I do applaud the action of dropping much-needed food and other supplies to the Iraqi religious minorities that are stranded […]

Monday Morning Musings

The adage, “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t” is most appropriate when thinking about the controversy over the recent prisoner swap in Afghanistan for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. In an article in The Atlantic, David Rhode gave his perspective, having been a prisoner in Afghanistan at one point, too. The bottom line […]

Say “no” to the TransCanada XL Pipeline

Posted by mcm0704 on April 21, 2014 |

Those of you who have been following my blog for some time know that I am against the TransCanada XL Pipeline that is scheduled to open soon. Many of us in Texas fought to keep the pipeline from coming through, but alas, the pipes are already in, just waiting for the green light from Washington […]

School Shootings

Posted by mcm0704 on December 17, 2012 |

It’s hard to let the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday pass without a comment. I know there are no words that can take away the awful pain of loss so many are experiencing, so all I can offer is my support and prayers that the families and friends of those who lost their lives […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 15, 2012 |

Today on Friday’s Odds and Ends we start with a quote from President Obama, “This administration has no interest in leaking classified information.” But does that mean that they didn’t? This comment was in response to allegations that the White House disclosed sensitive information to mold Obama’s image as tough on terror. Memo to Obama: […]

Shame on President Obama for doing the photo op at the Vietnam War Memorial on Memorial Day and double shame on him if it was his idea. I’m hoping it wasn’t. Even though I don’t always agree with him, I saw him as a man with more sensibilities and compassion. But maybe that was before […]

Just when we thought we’d heard the most absurd comments from political analysts, we get one that suggests that President Obama was making a political move with his contraception mandate. Andrew Sullivan, a friend of Obama, said, “I’ve found by observing this president closely for years that what often seems like short-term tactical blunders turn […]
