Civility

Social media and the internet have made so many people so much louder.  Cardi B is basically teaching young girls that if you just yell louder you win the argument, regardless of merit.  The Game calls Tomi Lahren a “microwaved carrot” and somehow that means he wins the debate about 21 Savage illegally staying in the US after his work visa expired.  On the internet, … Continue reading Civility

The Truth About Trump

Opponents of the President have seemingly exposed themselves to the remaining Americans with brain cells swimming around in our heads.  They’ve gone from 2 years of “collusion” straight to delusion.  Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), everyone’s favorite meltdown artist from Election Day 2016 (I’ll leave this here…), has doubled down on collusion.  After her vehement faith in the almost 2 year long Special Counsel led by Robert … Continue reading The Truth About Trump

John McCain

The Maverick is gone, but with news headlines across the nation mentioning a continued feud with President Trump, you’d think he was still the Senator from Arizona. Let’s agree to remember John as the war hero he was.  Let’s try to forget that time President Trump diminished that during the campaign – “I like people who weren’t captured.”  A stupid comeback and a gaff that … Continue reading John McCain

Lea

Here’s the second blog in my series of people in my life worth writing about – hope you like it. Lea Lancaster.  My co-worker and friend. She’s the epitome of what it means to be genuine.  God made her with an inability to be fake.  She is passionate about her kids, her career and wine (I sometimes tease her about the latter).  Every problem she … Continue reading Lea

Quiet

I’ve got lots to say, but no good way to say it.  I’m past worrying about disappointing anyone.  Like I’ve said before, you can care about people and ultimately not care if they disagree with you.  Political people need to learn this as soon as possible. Wisdom isn’t always knowing what you should do, sometimes it’s understanding what you shouldn’t. For instance, I’m smart enough … Continue reading Quiet

Morality

Racism is alive and well in America.  From White Nationalist rallies in the Carolinas to race-baiters across the country, we’re at each other’s throats over the difference of the shade of brown in our epidermis.  We have enough racism without murderers in Dodge Challengers running over black people.  We have enough racism without Jussie Smollett making stuff up to try to start a race war.  … Continue reading Morality

Immigration

Let’s talk about it. There is a difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration.  Legal immigrants go through a long process to be granted either temporary or permanent residence in the United States.  Illegal immigrants either outstay those temporary statuses, or skip the process altogether and cross the border illegally. Because much of this issue encompasses our southern border, it’s labeled “racist” if you believe … Continue reading Immigration

Gladys

It’s inevitable.  People pass away.  You lose people the older you get.  Time spent here isn’t indefinite.  You don’t think about it until you’re older.  Time is worth more than any currency on the planet. My family lost a pillar in the storm that is this world.  She was quiet, but strong.  She was afraid of simple things, but she had faith for the big … Continue reading Gladys

SE MN Real Estate Summary

If you’re a Realtor in SE Minnesota you get a newsletter every week updating you on the status of the industry in your area.  Personally, I’m sick of constantly reading that I don’t realize the dangers to my industry.  Without belittling the true giant disruptors that approach (and I’m aware of), I don’t think someone who doesn’t sell real estate knows the most dangerous threat … Continue reading SE MN Real Estate Summary
