- Did you ever notice…most people don’t answer the question you ask? They tend to anticipate more than you want and so they talk around the subject. Often a simple yes or no would suffice.
- How many more emails will I receive that tell me to pass this along to everyone I know and in three days everyone in America will be on board with this subject, proposal or whatever they’re promoting? Has that ever worked or accomplished anything? Or if I don’t send this – I’m part of the problem.
- Why is the sound on TV commercials always louder than the sound on the programs?
- I have long admired the logos on all automobiles; Ford, Kia, Honda, Cadillac, Lexus, Audi, Acura, Chevrolet, Hundai, et al. They are all stylish and distinctive and represent their brand well—all, except one. Toyota has the least distinctive, almost ugly logo of all. Maybe it doesn’t matter. Toyota is the largest, best-selling brand in the world.
- Can someone please tell me who has written or spoken on the justification for continuing to run up the national debt? I need to hear why it doesn’t matter and won’t hurt us. All I hear is the chorus of “We just have to do it.”
- It’s time (way past time) for the Muslim community to rise up and denounce, demonize and destroy in word and deed the terrorists among them who kill Muslims and infidels with impunity
- Here is the height of misguided adoration for St. Obama. A rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair wore an Obama face mask while performing. The outrage was over the top—racist, inappropriate—so they banned him from ever working at the Fair again. Funny, no one seemed to mind when the same guy wore masks of Bill Clinton or George Bush when he performed.
- I can’t believe how many men fail to put the toilet seat down after their use. On the other hand, I had no clue myself until we had the harangue leading to a divorce.
- How often do you get frustrated trying to talk to a customer service agent in India or the Philippines? You’re not alone—so keep in mind, according to U.S. law, you can request to speak to a customer representative in the U.S. They do have them. When you’re connected, ask where they’re located.
- Why do we provide exemptions for people over 50 to take U.S. citizenship tests in their native language and then print ballots for elections in 80 different languages? Shouldn’t facility with English be a requirement to be a U.S. citizen?
- While we’re on that subject, who in God’s green earth decided it was okay to have dual citizenship? I didn’t and I’d vote against it.
- The decline and fall of the Roman Empire was due to a number of reasons: a distorted value system; a lack of honest leadership; a bloated, pampered populous; higher taxes; and a decided lack of morality, to name a few. Are we following the same pattern?
- It took a divorce for me to realize I had to pay more attention to my life outside work and to understand I had to delegate more to my co-workers. After a conference with all my employees, it became a valuable management tool.
- I’ve always said we survive the so-called “best” and the “worst” of our leaders, but I’m beginning to have some doubts. Is there anyone on the horizon who is a real leader with integrity and core values who can lead us out of this wilderness of polarized policies and politics we’ve created?
- There’s an old adage (maybe old wives tail would be a better description) which says couples should never go to bed angry. I don’t believe that always makes sense or creates a good resolution. More often than not, it’s a better idea to sleep on a problem or disagreement and re-visit it the next day.
- The absolute ultimate hypocrisy, as well as insult to our collective intelligence was nominating Obama for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, just 12 days into office. This was the most incredible act of chutzpah by his mesmerized, Kool-Aid devotees for confusing an empty suit who did nothing more than or since then make eloquent, sweeping speeches while doing or accomplishing anything. Lord, save us from the demigods we canonize without a scintilla of merit.
More next year.
