Drowning: a preventable tragedy

The worst thing a parent can go through is the loss of a child. The child is supposed to outlive the parent.

But leukemia doesn’t know that.

A heart defect doesn’t know that.

SIDS doesn’t know that.

Bathroom choice puts women, girls in danger

The real problem with allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice is that it makes it impossible to differentiate between who should be using the women’s room and who should not.

Proponents argue that being transgender is not a choice. I agree.

That transgender people shouldn’t be forced to use a bathroom of the sex they don’t identify with. I concur.

Democratic Party lets Hillary down

Poor Hillary.

Her party just keeps letting her down.

She was supposed to be crowned president of the United States in 2008 but she couldn’t even win the Democratic nod during the primaries. Her party went with some black dude nobody had ever heard of instead.

No lives matter, but they should

Black lives don’t matter, white lives don’t matter, cop’s lives don’t matter, nor do children’s lives. All of the recent shootings in this country prove that lives don’t matter.

What matters is that this country has a huge problem with guns in the hands of the wrong people. And gun advocates are protecting them.

1 looking for nod; 5 hoping to secure cabinet positions

That wasn’t a debate, it was a job interview.

I thought I was going to see how the Democrat candidates differed, but instead suffered through two hours of watching five sycophants posturing for Hillary Clinton’s future cabinet positions.

No wonder it didn’t go into overtime, two hours of brownnosing was exhausting enough for the audience, I can’t imagine how her five lackeys felt.

White House is no place for Clinton’s hatred

Even if you agree with Hillary Clinton’s philosophies, would you really want someone that angry in the White House?

It takes a certain level of hatred to spew the sort of vitriolic rhetoric she’s been casting lately.

As if comparing Republicans to terrorists weren’t hate-filled enough, her pot boiled over the next day when she compared them to Nazis.

1 solution to 2 problems

Here’s a solution to the problem of illegal immigrants entering the United States. It partly comes from some of the Republican presidential contenders’ solutions mixed in with some economic solutions to our largest national corporations’ manufacturing products overseas.

Many of these companies have gone offshore to cut costs. Almost nowhere in the world do labor costs come close to those of U.S. union workers, though I won’t argue whether the wages paid are anywhere close to being legitimate based on productivity.

Taxpayers’ wallets aren’t big enough for this sheriff

How much more skullduggery on the part of the sheriff is needed before we finally stop re-electing him?

This man, sworn to uphold the law, clearly believes he’s above it.

And he has no qualms about wasting the taxpayers’ money every time he’s called on it.

Defining problem critical to solution

Since a San Francisco woman was shot and killed July 1 by a seven-time convicted felon, many in the country are calling for stricter laws to punish illegal immigrants who return to the U.S. after being deported.

Some people think killings perpetrated by illegal immigrants are more heinous than those committed by Americans. Though the families of the victims killed by Americans, including American police officers, probably have another thought on the issue.

Solipsism here to stay

It’s taken me 19 years, but I finally got to see one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Unfortunately, I waited so long that most of my photographs are peppered with self-absorbed navel gazers.
