Was Trump Set Up by the Russians?

  Something has been bothering me for a while now with the “whole Trump Rursia thing” (as Trump himself so eloquently put it).  I think there’s a completely different way to look at this, where the Russians are more deeply involved in a type of double plot. Consider this: Trump did collude.  Or his campaign […]

Too many things, to much Trump

It’s been a long time since I last posted to my blog — a long time.  AND!  Given I really have no ‘regular’ readers, I guess that’s okay — except I won’t get readers if I don’t post. Vicious circles. Anyway, I have been wanting to post on the news and everything that’s going on, […]

This last weekend I had four days off because my company gives us […]

Depression? Me? Nah! — My Story

I’m don’t feel sad or blue.  I don’t break down crying for no apparent reason.  I still go to work — maybe begrudgingly, but I go.  My appetite is normal. I am not suicidal. Everything is fine. But it’s not! I sleep A LOT.  I fall asleep watching TV, reading, or even playing a video game. […]
