Rioting by young people in Baltimore.

Whatever one wants to call the behavior of the black youth in Baltimore, it is not, in any way acceptable.  Why should it be excusable?  Their behavior is beyond any excuse anyone can conjure up.  Throwing bricks at people, smashing and burning cars, breaking into stores like CVS, and worst of all, doing it under the guise of anti-racism.  If you want to be listened to, try talking, not behaving like rabid animals. And that is exactly how you are behaving.  You are not for justice and equality, you apparently just want much needed attention at any cost including or especially being seen all over the world on camera. Never mind you look like running, cowardly idiots.  Does it make you feel like a really BIG person?  Think again.  You were never so wrong.  If you weren't so viciously hurting and damaging other people and things, I could almost, I said, almost, feeling sorry for you.  Right now I hold you in the highest contempt and you have earned it.....................marge

What are you doing God?

As I poured my first cup of coffee this morning while gazing out my kitchen window, my heart dropped.  Snow.  I blinked, just to make sure.  Yep, not a lot but real snow.  This is just wrong.  Has God turned into a prankster?  It's Spring and it's not funny God!  Yesterday I was admiring the so tall they were even falling over daffodils at my side door. And, if I'd raked last fall's large leaves out of my yard, I'd see the tiny blue flowers fighting their way up to see the sun's rays.  I enjoy a good joke now and then but this is ridiculous.  I won't even mention the leafless, blossoming Magnolia bush.  You have some explaining to do God, I'm waiting..........................marge

Senator Ted Cruz running for President

I don't know this man well but the little I do, scares me.  He believes in the Constitution of the United States and individual rights.  No no.  That is not what he stands for.  His ideas of individual freedoms are not the same as mine.  His are right.  Mine are wrong.  He doesn't believe in live and let live.  He doesn't believe in letting each of us, as long as we cause no harm to anyone else, be.  It's his way or the highway.  Gay couples, gay parents do me no harm.  Their love of each other and any children they may have, is a good thing.  I honestly don't know too many, but the  ones I do, seem extra special and nice, to me.  I can't say that about all the 'straight' people I know.  I see in this man narrow mindedness, inflexible thinking and absolutely no room for anything else.  He actually really does scare me.  He won't give freedoms, he'll be taking them away from each and every one of us.  If I do no harm to anyone else, then let me and others who think like, or not like I, be.  Don't put your rules on the rest of your fellow man.  Freedom is choice.  That's what our Constitution says.  So be it..................................marge

Rage. An epidemic

Rage, from youngsters to seniors is rampant.  Uncontrolled temper tantrums are destroying not only the victims but the perpetrators.  An adult going to prison for sucker punching and killing a volunteer ref because he didn't like the call.  A teenager giving up all scholarships because he, in a split second, decided it was ok to body slam a high school security guard.  Now, a young college football player has been suspended from the sport for pointing a gun at a driver who honked at him for driving recklessly in traffic.  (This young man had a gun why?)  Parents, schools, anyone, why hasn't this critical problem been addressed or even seen coming?  Do we all just back away when we see anger?  I know I tend to.  Perhaps its time we stopped.  We don't know what to do with these individuals and so it seems, we just turn the other way.  Not our problem we tell ourselves.  But it is.  It's all our problem.  Turning away won't work.  Someone please, tell us what to do........................................marge

Legalizing recreational marijuana

A bill may be in the offering to legalize recreational marijuana by one of our Michigan state legislators.  He says it will bring in big revenue.  What he neglects to say, is at how much cost?  Explain this 'big revenue' to all those who have had their cars totalled and loved one killed by drivers 'under the influence'.  Using marijuana will affect one's driving ability, as does alcohol.  Don't kid yourself.  I believe the 'cost' far outweighs any revenue.  We don't need to legalize another 'drug and drive'....................marge

It was the worst of times, the best of times.

I had an 11:30 a.m. dentist appointment today.  That in itself sets me off for the previous 24 hours.  I don't sleep well the night before and I'm near a basket case if I have to go anywhere before at least noon.  Starting disaster part #1.  They called and changed my appt. to 10:15 a.m.  That almost pushed me over the edge but on my way there, my muffler fell down, disaster # 2.  I've had things 'fall down' on my car before and its no fun.  Huge rattling and scraping on the cement, well, you know.  I went into the  dentist's office where wonderful people are including John who's in charge of the creative tooth lab.  He took a coat hanger outside with him and laid on some cardboard.  He proceeded to tie the muffler up til I could get to a repair place.  I headed to 13 mile and Greenfield Rds. To Ernie's muffler shop after my dentist appt.  Those are also 'wonderful' people, from the desk ladies to the repairers.  My car was fixed in no time and cost $99!  So yes, I am surviving.  Who said this 'senior' s--t was easy?  Bull!  Then I remember.  Life could be so much worse. Be grateful..............................marge

Victim's name not released.

Early in the story, the murder victim's name not released on Michigan's news airway.  Why oh why tell me, was it important and ok to mention the victim's color?  What possible bearing did that have on the story or anything?.....................................marge
