Last weekend was Super Bowl Sunday… or so they tell me. Not a big fan of football myself, I didn't spend the day drinking from beer cans and indulging in fatty snacks while lying around on the couch (at least, I didn't do those things in the name of football). What did I spend my Sunday afternoon doing? I went to see "Mama."

The president and congress are currently conspiring to grant 11 million criminals who invaded our country legal status. Many Americans, myself included, originally came from other countries. They applied for permission to come to this country. They patiently waited, some for up to a decade, for their opportunity to come to America. The tables are now turned upside down. The 11 million illegals currently residing in this country have been given a priority over the 4.6 million who are awaiting legal green cards.

The following is taken directly from Article I of the Constitution for the United States of America:

Section 1

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Section 8

1: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

Congress is wasting their time and our money on the Benghazi hearings over the massacre of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. Instead of working on the real problem, they are playing the blame game, trying to deflect the responsibly for the murders. The Democrats are blaming the Republicans for failing to fund security at the embassies. Republicans are blaming Secretary of State Clinton for failing to understand the threats and employ the appropriate security to protect the embassy.

"The President and I are determined to take action." So said Joe Biden following his appointment as chairman of a "Task Force" established by Barack Obama to recommend "solutions" to the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and other such horrific events.

Well, as predicted, Joe Biden has prejudicially produced massive "gun control" proposals.

Before Congress creates yet another useless special investigation committee and subpoenas me, I wish to come clean and confess.

I took steroids. Strong steroids. The kind that bulk you up and make you look like Stone Mountain. In my case, they just fattened me up, gave me rosy-red cheeks, and destroyed about half of my systems.

Intelligence is something that you are born with. That said, I've met some pretty dumb intelligent people. I've also met some very smart uneducated people. It is not how high a person's intelligence quotient is, but rather it is how well they are able to use the knowledge they have. This week I was shocked by a statement by Professor Judith Adler that her very intelligent "Generation Now" students were in fact poorly educated on basic geography.

Now that the fiscal cliff has been pushed down the road, the politicians are patting themselves on the back. They think it was a job well done. Well I disagree. They built a flimsy bridge over the fiscal cliff, but they are now headed full speed ahead into a financial abyss that will ruin our economy.

When I am faced with a problem, I prefer to address it right away. I do not like issues hanging over my head for a prolonged period of time when I know they can be solved quickly and easily. Congress, on the other hand, prefers not to solve problems. Even though our country faces the greatest financial crisis in a generation, Congress voted yet again to spend money we do not have. As we approach the so-called "fiscal cliff", they chose the easy path rather than creating a permanent solution.

Dogs were a part of growing up in Jim Thorpe in the 1950s. We shared a back yard with my grandparents. Midway between our house and theirs was a dog coop with a pair of beagles. When I was five, my parents bought me a fox terrier we named Buttons. He was a frisky little guy, short of hair and springy of leg. He liked to run around the yard, while I shot plastic balls at him from a bazooka-like air gun. I don't think those balls had anything to do with what happened to him on Christmas Eve 1953.
