Immigrant Vs. Illegal

I'm so sick of hearing people call illegals "immigrants". They aren't immigrants. They are migrants, they are illegals, and people need to stop with the bleeding heart sympathy for these people. Don't misunderstand me, I have a heart. It's just not misplaced like so many people's hearts and heads are. We have become a "feeling" … Continue reading Immigrant Vs. Illegal

My Thoughts On The Existence of “White Privilege”

I've been reading a lot lately about "racism" and "white privilege". I'd like to introduce a new perspective, if you will. I will start by saying that the color of a person's skin SHOULD NOT matter.

How To Lose My Attention In 30 Seconds Or Less…

I read. A lot. No...really. I read every single day. Books, magazine articles, news articles, blog posts, opinions, stories... I read it all. Okay, not every single word of everything I read is actually read. Why? Because a lot of what I run across bores me to tears. So, I have decided to outline all … Continue reading How To Lose My Attention In 30 Seconds Or Less…

R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

I feel like walking around and belting out the Aretha tune at the top of my lungs. "R-E-S-P-E-C-T...find out what it means to me"! People are just utterly disrespectful anymore. And I mean EVERYONE! Here's the deal: I don't give a flying rat's ass what anyone's opinions are. Everyone has an opinion. Life is full … Continue reading R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

Guide for Dummies: How to stop being an asshole…

We've all met those people, you know...the ones you just can't stand to be around. They're generally self-absorbed, obsessed with their own opinions, judgemental, and have an answer for literally everything.

Red Light… Green Light…Red Light…

People need to take a few minutes and put on the brakes. We could all benefit from reminding ourselves that we don't all like the same things.

Sixth grade!! Magical words, they were, and music to Angry Amy's ears. Junior high was finally here, and she could, at last, participate in a more grown up world.

Time: A Story of Too Little

It's true that time is precious, and also fleeting. It's also true that, no matter how much we think we can "make time" for things, we truly can't. For instance, I have resolved myself to the understanding that, despite my best intentions, this blog takes a back burner to the incessant barrage of crap that … Continue reading Time: A Story of Too Little

The Rise Of The Machines…

Blog is reblogged from a previous site: I am the sole author of this content.    I was born in the time before computers became the bane of our existence.  The truth is, I still remember what that was like...even though I was only a kid when I was introduced to the Commodore 64.  Yep...that … Continue reading The Rise Of The Machines…

“Self-centered” Thinking

I've given myself time to reflect over the past couple of days.  I'm not sure that it's made anything clearer, and I'm almost certain that the muddiness is even muddier than it was before I began to reflect.  At the center of everything is me, so yes...I am being a bit "self-centered" here.  However, aren't … Continue reading “Self-centered” Thinking
