Rauner on Recreational Cannabis? No Dope.

Rauner on Recreational Cannabis? No Dope.
This may not be the only reason that Illinois voters don’t renew his contract but it might be close to the top reason. The State of Illinois needs money and cannabis sales brings in the dough. Rauner’s statement that not enough study is done is ludicrous. THC, the active hallucinogenic compound, has been studied for... Read more »

#Himtoo More Sexual Abuse Comes to Light

I participated in the #Metoo. I can’t think of many women who have not been pinched, groped, or leered at.

It’s been discovered beneath the waves of Abu Qir Bay on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt. Researchers are attempting to answer questions like how did the city sink? There is some evidence...

I Don’t Find Trump Funny
Just recently a friend commented on one of my last articles. “ Gee, that was really in your face.” That’s me in your face. So is my sense of humor. Some things that are funny, like the things that strike Rachel Maddow strike me funny because they are so absurd that you have to laugh... Read more »

Thanks. Well Minnie you... Read more »

Trump Invaded my Morning

Trump Invaded my Morning
This morning I was watching the snow fall out side our windows and sipping an espresso that my husband brewed for us. It was a nice start to the day.

Keeping it Real on Independence Day

Keeping it Real on Independence Day
It’s the fourth of July, Independence Day. We celebrate free speech. So today I am celebrating my right to differ with the folks who started a petition for Grey’s Anatomy to fire Jesse Williams for exercising his right to speak freely. The celebration is not you can speak freely as long as you don’t piss... Read more »

A Dear Jane Letter, Jane Sanders that is.

A Dear Jane Letter, Jane Sanders that is.
Dear Jane Sanders, I am an avid supporter of your husband, Bernie. I attended the rally at Chicago State University in Chicago. I cheered so much I almost lost my voice. I had tears in my eyes because for once in oh so many years I could feel entirely proud of a candidate. I could... Read more »
