Just another rant that has been building up in me and needed to be told.
Just another rant on politics. My very opinionated view of this fine mess we are currently in. If you have seen the ShamWow commercials, then this might be an easier one to understand my point.
Knowing something bad is going to happen, and trying to let others know before it is too late. This is my "short story" of an event that some had the foresight to see and some who didn't.
Another rant that made me feel as if I was in the Twilight Zone!
(a spur of the moment rant) Well, I was about to eat my soup, sitting at my desk, looking over some headlines on the news.......and this just blurted right out of me.
Random Thoughts and Rants (#3 April 3, 2013) More rambling thoughts, they may not make too much sense to most people, but for a short time they did to me.
More random thoughts that go through my mind during the day and sometimes get me somewhat riled up....
Just a collection of thought during a lunch break. Not out to offend anyone, just blabbing away with some RANDOM rants and ravings.
- The BillyBuc Fiction Writing Contest -(By CMerritt)
Most of us have learned from an early age that we simply cannot spend more than we make. It is the most commonsensical economic lesson that can be comprehended by any hard-working American. We also understand that increasing the amount of monetary...
Hope and Change Yes we can! Create Jobs Heal the land A transparent government Pay as you go End all wars and Close Gitmo Bailout Fannie Bailout Freddie Bailout the banks Keep things steady Healthcare...
Okay, it is getting down to where the rubber meets the road in the race for our next President. I for one, am somewhat poised, perhaps the term “cautiously optimistic” is a better way to phrase it, with regards of our potential outcome of this...
It has been a while since I have stopped long enough to put some of my frustrations to ink. I really don’t know where to start sometimes. The Political Season is full bore now, and we are getting ever so close to that very important date...
Yeah its cheesy, but one of those times that I was in the mood and felt fortunate enough to try to put it in words.
I awoke this morning, and was reminded of this historic day of our Country, June 6th – D-Day! It was a major battle that changed the course of WWII. With that said, my heart goes out to every one of the soldiers who fought for the liberties and...
It has long pondered my deepest thoughts as to WHY exactly liberals in this country are incredibly arrogant, rude, obnoxious and hateful. Sure, these are strong words to use but, this is my little rant, and my personal desire to answer my own...
How our POTUS handles things. A rant from my heart.
Another Rant...Rush Limbaugh provokes the liberals with another outlandish yet humorous comment. Frustration over the liberal entitlement mentality. More double standard mind-set by our mainstream media.
This is yet once again, an attempt at poetry through some ramblings and my thoughts....this kind of came to me as I laid in my bed last night. I sometime rant and rave about politics too much, and I thought perhaps I need to change things up a bit. I don't always give God enough credit.....
Another Rant... How is it the Constitution can be ignored by our very own president?
Well, the state of Indiana is on the brink of some National news. There is going to be some major fights abrupt as the states legislators are close to passing the Right to Work (RTW) law. This law stipulates that unions in this state can no longer...
This is a rant that I have done over and over, but trying to best explain the significance of conservatism, at least from my point of view.
Anothr rant. American pride and our Christian heritage has somehow been found a disgrace by the liberal crowd.
Another attempt at some poetry about my favorite subject. My family. Wayne Brown was kind enough to emal me and give me some advice and recommend a few touches here and there, to make it even more "dear" to me.
Just a reflection on how I know we can be a great nation once again. I really don't think we are that Nation we once was just a few years ago....but I want my kids the opportunity to feel that sort of American Pride and the opportunity to "live the American dream"
Why I think we ARE an exceptional Nation. We need to remind ourselves as to how we got there and what it took to get there, and do what it takes to stay there. I think we now with President Trump in charge who truly understand this and is restoring the phrase.
I'm in a rut. I cannot get myself to write anything. My normal “political” rant's that I usually have no problem with, just have not been there. Oh, they are there in my brain, but I can’t seem to put them on paper. I have been working on a...
I believe perhaps we need expand our government with a new agency. This agency is designed to restore, revitalize, and to return this land back into the nation our forefathers once believed it would/should be. More importantly, its main focus will be to restore Common Sense back into the daily...
Written through the eyes of America
For those of you who have been so very kind to me and offered some heart felt support and prayers over the recent dilemma regarding my wife’s health, I want to take a moment to thank you and give an update.
Cole faces evil.
Cole shows his eagerness to become a man and fulfill his duties as not only a new deputy, but a big brother.
Cole and Skinner prepare for an upcoming storm.
After thinking and stewing over to publish this attempt at another western fiction. I wrote this one on the cuff, but soon realized that it was very, very similar to the ony other western fiction that I have written. I must have a story to tell or my mind cannot produce anything other than the one...
Cole tries to gather his wits and decide what is best for his sister.
I wrote this hub a few months ago, but I think now, more than ever it is prevalent.
I recently wrote a hub titled “I love my wife”. It was based upon my recent experience regarding my wife’s visit to the ER. She went in with pains in her abdomen and back. Off the cuff, the docs were pretty certain it was her gall bladder....
and yet another attempt at poetry...or maybe just some rambling from my heart I love my wife My heart is full Married almost 28 years Cannot explain my feelings Have so much confidence and fears. My wife is weary Her work can be very...
Okay, I have not had a rant for quite a while on here, so here I go for those of you who give a rat’s behind, what I think. The bottom line for me is this: America has got to change course. The tea party members have been screaming at Washington...
A tribute to one of the best friends I have ever had.
My very first attempt at a short story. Thanks to Will Starr for being kind enough to give me this chance to add to one of is fabulous stories. I had so much fun doing this.
I was a sports fan from a very early age. Having a “sports hero” back years ago seemed to be more prevalent than it is today. It also seemed to me that many of those greats from yesterday had great nicknames. Here is my list of some of my...
Cat juggling is one of the biggest and darkest secrets that have eluded mankind over the last century.
I just want to wish all of the hubbers who have followed me and have taken the time to comment on my hubs, and wish you a very Merry Christmas. Here is a few of my favorite Christmas songs and Movie scenes. CMerritt "The Little Drummer Boy,"...
Breaking down simple scripture and realizing just HOW powerful the word of God really IS!
I think this term "Shining city on a hill" was/is so symbolic of what God desired His people to be. I think it is vital, that we strive for this, but it seems as though our light is dimming quickly.
My firt attempt at poetry. I came to me after my kids and I were talking about God one evening.
It seems to me that somewhere down the line, when our forefathers instituted the documentation known as our Constitution, to current day Washington DC politics, our politicians has deemed themselves the power to use federal dollars on benevolent...
A quick look at the history of hoosier basketball, and its important role it played in my childhood and many other childhoods by fellow hoosies.
I think many people today believe that being a Patriot, means paying your taxes, voting, waving a flag, and following your government leaders. Webster simply tells us that it is: “love for or devotion to one's country”.
America, on Nov 2nd 2010, the people of the United States of America, has spoken! In the most unprecedented way, they have spoken. They chose to fire those, who believed in reckless spending. They fired those who believe government was the solution...
A collection of thoughts and listening to a pastor of mine who has gone onto be with the Lord, inspired me to post this. God deserves all credit for this hub, and I pray that someone can be touched by Him.
As you may have noticed I have used a picture of a football player called sweetness in my profile. I will attempt to explain why. I first wondered, how exactly any football player could be called “Sweetness”. A man, who would devastate on coming...
Part of my hopes of becoming part of this Hub experience is to further understand many issues that we all face. As a proud parent of five kids, I am merely trying to stay on top of things to keep my family safe and sound. The problem I face today...
Another rant. Agian on the entitlement mentality where the "least of these" takes on the "free for these".
I hope that someday these folks discover the relationship that they missed, those that have already discarded the religion....and accept science, soley as the way.
My brother took this picture a few months ago. I really like this picture, it has for some reason, really stuck in my heart, It makes me think about the way things "oughta be". Politics, religion, wars, and TV, all these things can make you lose...
This is one of my first "rants", I wrote this some time back, but I thought I would post it here. It may help decribe who I am.
This was my first hub...I was not sure what I was doing or getting into....I have learned very much and have made some very interesting friends....I encourage you to jump in and enjoy this place. My first thought on the way things "ought to...
