Dear Followers of False Messiahs —- January 21, 2021

January 12, 2021 Dear Followers of False Messiahs, Throughout history there have been people who garner the support and admiration, the love and absolute trust in a charismatic leader whom they think is The Messiah. It never ends well. Not for the charismatic leader, the followers of that person or the societies they lived orContinue reading “Dear Followers of False Messiahs —- January 21, 2021”

Dear Friends – January 7, 2021

Dear Friends, I think I’ve figured out the problem, so, maybe the solution will be easier now. The problem seems to be that there are facts and “alternate facts”. This afternoon I listened to a bit of the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Just to make sure I had the “facts” that are also known asContinue reading “Dear Friends – January 7, 2021”

Dear to Everyone, WTF!! – January 6, 2021

January 6, 2021 To Everyone,WTF!!! Today’s scenes weren’t from the movies “Olympus has Fallen” or “White House Down” but I look forward to the documentary “How Trump tried to Destroy Everything”.

Dear Senator Cruz – January 4, 2021

January 4, 2021 Dear Senator Cruz, I hope this letter is received by you or your staff and you consider my point of view. I don’t speak for every voter outside of Texas, only for myself. I really like it when Heather Cox Richardson, an impressive person, always says she doesn’t speak for her employersContinue reading “Dear Senator Cruz – January 4, 2021”

Dear Republicans… – January 3, 2021

January 3, 2021 Dear Republicans, who are breaking their oaths of office, I take back my sincere effort to have a giant sing along with the song, “This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land”.

Dear 2020 – December 31, 2020

December 31, 2020 Dear 2020 I already wrote most of a goodbye letter to you that was full of all the blessings this year brought to me and my family. You know, the usual things people are grateful for- family, community, faith, health, jobs, peace, personal growth, etc. I really do feel that gratefulness butContinue reading “Dear 2020 – December 31, 2020”

Dear I Don’t Know Who – December 23, 2020

December 23, 2020 Dear I Don’t Know Who, Help, my thoughts are jumbled, and ideas are tumbling around my brain and I think I need to hear some other opinions. Yesterday I had a great idea about celebrating teachers with increased pay and a free day at a spa until I realized the difficulty inContinue reading “Dear I Don’t Know Who – December 23, 2020”

Dear Someone, Anyone – December 21, 2020

December 21, 2020 Dear Someone, Anyone, The days are getting longer! Last night there were clear skies and we saw the bright confluence of Jupiter and Saturn and it was spectacular. I know that the official date of the Great Confluence is tonight, but this is Michigan and we probably won’t have a clear skyContinue reading “Dear Someone, Anyone – December 21, 2020”

Dear Ivanka – December 14, 2020

December 14, 2020 Dear Ivanka, I apologize for calling you by your first name, but I didn’t know if you go by Ms. Trump or by Mrs. Kushner or maybe, Mrs. Trump-Kushner. Which do you prefer? Actually, this entire letter is a bit chutzpadik (nervy) but my questions for you are questions lots of peopleContinue reading “Dear Ivanka – December 14, 2020”

Dear Anyone – December 10, 2020

December 10, 2020 Dear Anyone, It’s been a while since I felt the need to write to you. Things seemed to be going okay. The election was over, and the transition started and the new Cabinet looks solid and competent. The noise about “stealing” an election made me think about masked bandits holding up aContinue reading “Dear Anyone – December 10, 2020”
