. . . on this week's State of the Union Address:

If President Obama's proposed executive actions are legal and constitutional, why hasn't he taken them in the last five years? If he could have avoided putting us in the worst condition since Jimmy Carter, why hasn't he?

The President said, “If John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan could negotiate with the Soviet Union, then surely a strong and confident America can negotiate with less powerful adversaries today.” So why is President Obama afraid to negotiate with the Republicans?

These are so bad they're good.     — from Sense of Events

God saw he was getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
so He put His arms around him,
and whispered, "Come with Me".
With tearful eyes we watched
him suffer and saw him fade away,
although we loved him dearly,
we could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
We love you.

My friend Ben had been fading through recent months. Now he's gone, at the age of 86, reunited with his beloved Patty.

Vaya con Dios, mi amigo!

Right On Point

Here are just a few things I've run across in this new year that are right on point.
The image above is serious. Our remaining World War II veterans are aged, and many are infirm. When you see one, remember the valiant individual who is now hidden in that aged exterior.

The other two things here are just laugh-out-loud funny.
You older folks may have to explain this last one to the youngsters.
