On Opinions in the Shorts: Vol. 50

On a Few Political Shorts
As I posted yesterday, I did not watch the State of the Union. From the reports and snippets that I’ve seen, I’m glad I didn’t. Yesterday’s post gave 10 suggestions to Democrats, of which I expect them to do none of them.

Organization guru Steven Covey had an interesting article in the USA Weekender two weeks ago about how political parties can come together. Good idea – fat chance of it happening. Here’s my post on the widening gap.

Politicians simply make it too easy to demonstrate why moderates independents are unhappy. Let’s look at some comments by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Jul 17, 2019: “If we’re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.”

Jan 24, 2010: “I did not want this to be the president’s Waterloo.”

On the New Addition to the Links
Since the Anonymous Moderate mentioned A Frank Angle, I have added this site on my sidebar.

On Tiger and Golf
As the PGA tour starts its season, Tiger is currently out of the picture. Golf needs him and he needs golf. Nonetheless, he has to get his life in order, thus golf must wait.

On Wine and Poems
This may seem like a strange pairing, but here’s a site with poems about wine.

On Hamburgers
Hamburgers are an American food treasure. For those who love these savory patties anytime of the year, here’s a good article about it’s history.

To go into the weekend, here’s a fun report from Bill Geist (CBS Sunday Morning) regarding what could be the best burger to be found. Enjoy and have a great and safe weekend!

  1. I very much agree with you about golf and Tiger Woods. It is because of him that golf is relevant, but he does need to get his personal life together first.

    The Anonymous Moderate has a nice site and design over there, too.

    Good, short opinions as always!


    • David,
      I can see myself frequently visiting the Anonymous Moderate.

      Tiger made stupid decisions, which are amplified because of his perceived image – which has been taken down a few notches. As a local commentator asked, “Why would he go out for hamburger when he has steak at home?” Well … I guess he really likes hamburger.

      CCC mentioned Lefty Phil. Interestingly, I keep thinking about how he handled personal issues last year (wife and mother diagnosed with cancer). Although he’s not my favorite golfer, my level of respect for him jumped up!

      Thanks for commenting.


    • CCC,

      As a competitor, Phil has a chance to be top dog during Tiger’s absence. On the other hand, I appreciate what Lefty said: “The game of golf needs him to come back. It’s important for him to come back and be a part of the sport. But right now, he’s got a lot more important things going on in his life.’’

      Thanks CCC. Hope all is well.


    • Hey Hey Larry,
      The burger clip is a good one. I wanted to show Man vs Sasquatch from the Travel Channel segment, but I couldn’t find it.

      Thanks for reading.


Comment with respect.
