As the cries echo across the country to end lockdowns so that we can return to our “normal” lives, it’s become clear to me that there is no normal to which we can return. Of course, the word begs the question, “What is normal?” Here is one definition of the word: Preview Open

The term “new normal” shows up in all the media, although it’s used to describe many different conditions. Some people use the term to describe the disturbing changes that have been made in the current environment. Government, industry, the culture and even individuals have been called to step up to mitigate and manage the corona […]

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over a loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by Dictatorship.

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

Story Hour with Bridget Phetasy is a segment where Bridget reminisces with cousin Maggie and tells stories explaining who she is and how she got here. Full transcript available here: WiW27-StoryHour3-Transcript

This story hour comes as a result of several requests. Bridget covers her history with the restaurant industry – across the country, in small towns and big cities. Find out why being a hostess isn’t as easy as one might think, why you should never go out to eat when you’re starving, and why Bridget loved being a busser (hint: you don’t have to talk to the customers). Tales told also include, losing her virginity to someone inappropriate, her brilliant strategy for skipping school and how it all came crashing down, which famous singer grabbed her ass at Sundance, and Bridget’s secret true passion in life.

“Justice Thomas, who also faced false last-minute allegations during his nominating process, has spent more than a quarter-century on the court doing his job, staying true to his judicial principles, and not giving a damn what the Washington Post and CNN have to say about him. It’s unfortunate that the newest justice faces a similar task, but I’m guessing he’s up to it.” — Jason Riley, Wall Street Journal

The Left will continue to harangue us about Justice Kavanaugh and attack the man, but ultimately I believe he will be admired for his resilience under fire, for his passion for defending his reputation, for his defense of his family, and his stellar record. In the tradition of every Supreme Court, I hope he will be treated with respect and grace by his colleagues. I’m counting on their rising above all the chaos and welcoming him into the fold.

Since I don’t like deadlines, I almost always finish my projects early. This post was no exception. And I grumbled about the finished project for several days. At first I identified a couple of people whom I sincerely admire, who had several attributes that I believed made them winners. I couldn’t help wondering why I […]
