More Transgender discrimination. When is enough…enough

Straight Talk with No BS

I personally don’t know anyone who is transgender, and I’m can’t say without doubt that I would not be uncomfortable befriending someone who is. I have friends that are gay and have no problem associating with them. To me what you do behind closed doors is your business, just don’t involve me. Regardless, however, discrimination against anyone is wrong. Is it not for us to say what is right and what is wrong. It is not for anyone to say what is normal and what is not.

There may be things I do not understand or can’t comprehend, but that does not permit me to discriminate against anyone. However, hate and division has been the narrative in this country since it’s inception. The culture being perpetuated today has been the conduit in the rise in many aspects of hate related crime. The following story and actions suggested by the leaders…

Americans prove one can divide but only many can conquer

Straight Talk with No BS

I have been all over this land of ours, and it’s amazing. From rural communities to sprawling suburbia and of course large megalopolis and metropolitan cities. This country is truly amazing. What makes it so amazing is the diversity that makes up our country and pervades the inner cities and most parts of the country and what sets America a part from the rest of the world.

Forget whether your a Republican or a Democrat. People know, a good person from a not so good person. A honest person from a liar, a morally sound person from one that is morally bankrupt. A womanizer from a faithful husband. A smart ass from a diplomatic speaker. Donald Trump exudes all those negative characteristics. Americans are sick and tired and are not going to take it anymore.

On a recent outing to celebrate St. Patrick’s day weekend I spent time with with…

Attention Deficit Disorder Does everyone have ADD

Straight Talk with No BS

I received a notification from a blogger whose site directed me to a symptom checker about ADD or ADHD or whatever it’s called. For some reason this compelled me to write about this learning disorder. It reminded me of my experience with Attention deficit disorder.

I am “old school”and back when I was growing up there was no such thing as Attention deficit disorder, although in retrospect I had every symptom. When I was 8 yrs old I banged my head on the wall while in bed in order to fall a sleep or I banged my legs up and down in bed continuously in order to sleep. I never told anybody I was to embarrassed.

Nevertheless years later at age 27 I was diagnosed with Attention deficit disorder and prescribed Ritalin. For some years it worked great and my career accelerated. I could read and actually comprehend what I…

Autism and the different Spectrum Levels

Straight Talk with No BS

What motivated me to write this piece is personal experience. I don’t have Autism but someone close to me does. Someone that has recently come in to my life and someone I care deeply about. I have been trying to learn about this debilitating disorder and have learned much, however what I have learned has generated as many questions as answers. Until recently I had no experience dealing with this disorder, and it is incumbent on me to learn as much I can if I want to be of help. So I share some of what I have learned. Understanding of this disorder is in it’s infancy and professional’s are just beginning to put the pieces together. The following information was gathered from http://verywellhealth.com

Every person with autism receives the same diagnosis: autism spectrum disorder (ASD). But autism is a spectrum disorder, meaning that a person can be mildly, moderately…

Three things you need to know about the Senate

Straight Talk with No BS

We will find a way to vote you out. Your yes vote means your not interested in justice but only political capital. Your shameful and spineless if you vote yes for the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. Your setting the country back 50 years. Shame on you. Your gutless and morally bankrupt and a stain on this country on the state.

Leadership left with the passing of John McCain
