Protests and Violence: My Story…

19 March 2016

0 Comments

The year was 2003, and the left’s protest du jour was anti-war and pro-peace. But there was a significant undercurrent to the protests that was anything but peaceful, and just like the current sets of protests…focused on disruption, intimidation, even violence, and were thoroughly funded. How do I know, you ask? Well, aside from watching […]

Review: AcTek Sundock Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

16 March 2016

0 Comments

Disclaimer: I received this product for review. However, as always, this did not, and does not, affect my review. It’s not often I’m surprised by a product. But the AcTek Sundock Wireless Bluetooth Speaker did so on a couple of levels. I’d seen similar speakers show up in my Amazon feed before, but sort of […]

In Defense of Dr Ben Carson…

11 March 2016

0 Comments

Earlier today, Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump for President, surprising many. His detractors came out of the woodwork hard and fast, complaining that he’d betrayed his beliefs (both political and his faith) or that he undermined his (apparently former) polite demeanor. The harshest critics seem to be those that in the weeks previously had supported […]

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review…

10 March 2016

While the official launch date is tomorrow, March 11th, I was able to pre-order mine…and surprisingly, it arrived 10 days early. So I’ve definitely been using it the past week and a half, so thought I’d share my unsolicited review. I was coming from an S5, and had skipped the S6. And frankly, I was […]

Be Like the Ducks…

An interesting things happened on the way to pick up my son from a Boy Scout hike yesterday. I was driving along and by the side of the road was a little puddle, barely large enough to fit the two ducks that were in it.  Despite the small size, the ducks were swimming (well, paddling […]

Introducing Salina Solomon…

Sometimes when stumbling around Twitter, you come across someone and despite the preponderance of political rants and celebrity gossip nonsense, you have a pleasant exchange…with a real person. You know, the way social media used to be, once upon a time. And that, my friends, is exactly what happened this weekend. I ended up following […]

Disclaimer: yes, I received product to do the review, but the product itself has no bearing on the review. (Wouldn’t make it much a review, then, would it?) I was initially contacted by Liporidex via twitter, and to be honest, I wasn’t initially interested in their products, much less doing a review. So what did […]

Reviews Ahead…

12 December 2015

0 Comments

Just a heads-up…but have some reviews in the pipeline coming up. One is something like a year in the making (or so, will have to check emails and explain at the time it’s posted), one is new, out-of-the-blue, and another is totally unsolicited, just because I like the product. And if you happen to have […]

The Syrian Refugee Issue: Bring Them In…

21 November 2015

Some have thought my previous post (Equivocating the Syrian Refugee Issue…) was a rejection of the refugees. But it wasn’t. What it was is this: a criticism of the way pundits are equivocating the issue (thus the title…follow along). As I wrote, this crisis is unlike any other we’ve had. I think the closest comparison would […]
