Men, Take My Advise

There is a terrible program on HGTV called House Hunters. Take some advise from someone with experience having a wife that watches this program faithfully…’s bad.

Ladies get too many ideas from this program that not only will put you in the poor house but will create such a chaotic experience that you may not be able to sit down for a week or two.

I knew this would happen to me, but there was nothing I could do about it once it started. Whatever the trend might be at the time, they’ll want it done.

If the trend is carpeting, they’ll want carpeting.

If the trend is hard wood floors, that’s what you’ll be stuck with.

You’ll never have a moments rest.

Take it from me, never ever allow your wife to watch House Hunters. Change the channel before it's too late.

Well, that's all I want to say. It’s good advise. Take it or leave it. But if you don’t take it, just remember, I gave you fair warning.

Now, I have to get back to sweeping our new hard wood floors.

Trump To Cut Social Security

Trump’s Promise Not to Cut Social Security has been Broken by Robert Roach, Jr. President Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget is a non-starter. He has betrayed America’s seniors. In fact, $2 trillion in deficit reduction turns out to be just a math error. The budget cuts $72 billion over ten years from disability programs, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Trump promised repeatedly to protect – not cut – Social Security. Yet his first budget does just that, harming millions of disabled Americans.  The Trump budget also slashes $1.4 trillion from Medicaid over 10 years. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), total Medicaid spending was $368 billion in 2016. Almost two-thirds of that was for seniors and people with disabilities, who rely on Medicaid for health care and long-term care. This cut is drastic and dangerous by any measurement. This budget also decimates the Community Development Block Grant, which pro…

The Ship of Fear

My Destroyer, the U.S.S. Walker, was tied up in Pearl Harbor.

The Newspaper headlines for several days along with lengthy articles told of a merchant ship, "the Pomona" that was tied up in Honolulu waiting for crew to take it to the far east. The Captain had been murdered while at sea and the crew was afraid that the murderer was still aboard. The ship finally got underway again and my memory is that it had rudder problems and had to return to port. Then, after getting underway again it had a fire on board and had to return again.

While on liberty one day in Honolulu, I stopped in at a saloon on my way back to my ship. There, I met a merchant sailor who happened to be a sailor aboard the Pomona. He offered to take me back to the ship and let me come aboard her. We did and headed for the bow of the ship where there was a lot of noise. There sitting on the deck were a number of sailors, mostly drunken, talking about their predicament.

This occurred sometime between 1961 and…
