Right on!

I've had the sense that nothing is as it seems for months now. The narrative Hillary was to be the heir apparent was set up years ago. First we had a black President. And then we would have our first woman President. It was to be this seamless transition as we marched into a progressive paradise.

But, but....

Some of us have been rudely paying attention to Ms. Clinton's actual policy positions and when offered the alternative of a real progressive found that option much more appealing.

I eagerly await the primaries. I think the nation is going to be shocked at the divergence from the pre-ordained narrative the MSM has been pushing.

So far no sightings in Texas

I live in the Dallas area and I don't know anyone that is really for the idea of people walking around with a gun openly strapped to their hip.

The company I work for has decided to be gutless and not have an explicit policy on open carry in their stores. I had a short, sharp exchange with a senior manager and expressed my displeasure and unwillingness to work with anyone that comes in openly armed.

But I doubt we'll see it that often.

The people that want to do this are a tiny tiny minority that have somehow garnered an extraordinary amount of influence and power because they vote in the primaries.

Most people, even if they have a concealed carry permit, have no desire to walk around openly armed.

And that is the problem that I expressed to that senior manager. The chances are that someone that is openly carrying is probably not quite right in the head. Otherwise, they wouldn't have any desire to openly carry.

That is the core problem. Only the crazies are paranoid and insecure enough to want to be armed all the time. The crazies are--and always have been--the problem...

That's why we let it go

My wife's pregnancy was high risk and my youngest almost didn't make it. But the care was expert (before the birth and in the NICU) and I have a wonderful, beautiful, brilliant daughter.

I did not agree with their position and if not for the outcome might have gone to the ACLU myself.

Instead, I got a vasectomy a few years later.

It is a grotesque violation of medical ethics in my view.

It was over reproductive rights and contraception specifically I left the Church at 13.

Even though Pope Francis is a really great guy and the world loves him he has not changed Catholicism's anti-feminine, anti-sex dogma. A dogma not rooted in the teachings of Christ but in the twisted prudery of old bitter men.

St. John's in St. Louis (now Mercy Hospital)

Catholic hospital in St. Louis 23 years ago refused to do a tubal ligation for my wife.

At the time we just let it roll.
