Do not mistake kindness for weakness.

 ~ Based on what I read, Wise County could be held liable in the death of an inmate in the Wise County jail. The inmate admitted to a deputy he ingested methamphetamine and died a short time later. This could cost millions.

  ~ "We see you. We stand with you. We will do everything we can to protect you going forward." LORETTA E. LYNCH, attorney general of the United States concerning LBGT rights.

  ~ SNL’s church lady has gone viral over the selection of Presidential candidates, politics and the usual hilarity. I must admit it’s very funny!

  ~ Well, my Macbook Pro had a hardware issue so I can’t connect to the internet. It’s about 14 months old and hasn’t been playing with others well. This is the first time I’ve had such an issue with a Mac in 10 years. I feel naked.

Based on the survey as to whether my readers prefer cheaper gas over higher gas but buying it from Middle Eastern countries that consider us an enemy, I find, once again, money trumps principle. Only 53% prefer energy independence to providing income for our enemies. Surprised?

The rainy weather this year reminds me of how it was 35 years ago. April showers brought May flowers. Drought has been a factor over the last decade and the media plays up every opportunity to issue severe weather alerts.

In the “Bad Form” section, George Zimmerman is auctioning off the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin. He started the bidding at $5,000 on, which stopped his ad after being made aware of it.

People filing for unemployment benefits rose to its highest level in over a year. Is anyone surprised? Do you expect the MSM and White House to shout it to the mountaintops?

It looks like oil will level off to $45 a barrel this summer. I don't know whether to be happy or sad. There is no way I would believe that the price is based on supply and demand. The system is rigged.

Big business corporations seem to be embracing the transgender restroom issue. Why would they not remain neutral and keep their mouth shut is beyond me since it could cost them hundreds of millions. They may be cashing in on the free press, which is probably equivalent to tens of millions in free advertising.

What a beautiful day today, huh? Okay, I'd like to take a few minutes from my busy life to comment on your discussion points one by one.

• First, Denney, you are right -- Wise County taxpayers will have to bail out the jail over the lawsuit you know is coming and afterwards those who live in rural areas will have rotten roads for the next couple of years. If I ever end up in jail in Decatur, I think I'll admit to drinking chocolate milk an hour before dinner. You never know what might happen in jail.

• I would be more impressed with Loretta Lynch if she said she was going to be standing with people of high moral character instead of, well, perverts. BTW, I thought Loretta Lynch was a coal miner's daughter from West Virginia. WTH?

• I moved away from Mac platforms over 20 years ago not because it doesn't work (and work well, generally speaking), but because of compatibility with Microsoft operating systems. It was easier to make a living as a technocrat in the Microsoft world.

• In regard to your survey, don't be too disappointed. I came here every day and padded the numbers for cheaper gas. Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

• With all the problems he's had from a corrupt media, I think Zimmerman should sell the gun for a zillion dollars and move to Hawaii where he will forever be mistaken as a native.

• They should include a cell phone with unemployment benefits. Food stamps too. Maybe a house as well. A car would be nice. Cable TV allowance? Cosmetic surgery? Free Viagra?

• Of course, the system is rigged! Not just oil, either. Entropy eventually forces the collapse of coherent systems but we don't have to be a part of it.

• If big business wants to define instances of social justice, then how about not prosecuting those who shoplift simply because they HAVE NO MONEY! I have not always been a winner of life's lottery, but I never used it as an excuse to move to San Francisco and start shopping at Target.

On the bathroom bills issue, my sense is that we're seeing the detritus of the gay marriage swell, as having been awarded the right to 'marry' by the SC, had run out of gas, and needed an issue to maintain their perpetual victim status. That major corporations have decided to embrace the TG issue is disappointing, though not surprising. Target has long been liberal, and WalMart, in addition to being weary from being the punching bag for the left for at least a quarter century, hasn't had any balls since Sam died. I think most corporations figure the route of least resistance is to acquiesce to the implicit greenmail of the shrill vocal minority, or face the wrath of the opinion-shaping media.
