This one is the first guest writing I have posted on The Madrigal Maniac and it is re-posted from The Dirty Rotten Junkie. This particular junkie is not only...

I Agree with Kasich for Once

For those of us who work in the addiction world, we’ve known this was coming for a long time. Unfortunately, the media and government always seem late to the party. We’ve know for at least 4 maybe 5 years that the beginnings of an opiate epidemic was under way. However, no one listened to...

Tressel Out Meyer In, Beano and Bianchi Know ……. Nothing!

John Taylor has an excellent post at College Football Talk on NBC Sports. He reminds us that back in March, the Orlando Sentinel’s Mike Bianchi predicted Jim Tressel would be out as Ohio State’s coach and Urban Meyer would take over. First of all, who the hell is Mike Bianchi. It turns out he...

How will the GOP Handle the Birther Issue?

I thought the birther movement would be short lived, but it continues today. I thought that after the certificate of live birth was shown to the public and deemed good enough to prove a live birth in legal proceedings (which is what it says on the certificate), I thought the issue was dead. I...

Kasich Opens Mouth, Inserts Foot

I’m not sure Governor John Kasich even knows what he is saying anymore. Like most republicans he has the GOP talking points engraved into his DNA. However, sometimes he says something that appears to be off script. If a staff member wrote it, Kasich should probably find him another job, if he didn’t, I...

Republican Official Doesn’t Even Know What She Did was Racist

April 18, 2011
By

As many of you have probably heard, Marilyn Davenport, an Orange County Republican Official, sent out a racist email with Obama’s head photo-shopped onto a chimpanzee. Many republicans condemned it, but what I find more interesting is Mrs. Davenports reaction. She takes almost no responsibility for it. “I’m sorry if my email offended anyone,”...

Kasich’s Plan to Sell Ohio’s Government and Violate the Constitution

April 17, 2011
By

Governor Kasich has been running around the state on his taxpayer funded plane to trumpet the success of his ability to keep jobs in Ohio. However, many people believe these jobs were never going to leave Ohio and that Kasich gave them incentives to stay when none were needed. This besides the fact that...

Sheen and Cage, Substance Abuse or Stupidity

On goes the continuing saga of Charlie Sheen and Nicolas Cage.  Their actions can only be explained by substance abuse or stupidity. I’m guessing a little of both. First of all they are really bad actors. Cage had a few successes early, but now has been regulated to “B” movies which are made for...

Finally Someone Takes Notice of Designer Drugs

Finally, at least the main stream media is taking notice of designer drugs. The AP has an excellent article on the dangers of designer drugs here on news at 6 from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’ve been writing about it for a month since the death of Trevor Robinson from 2C-E. Designer drugs are K2 which...

Remember, K2 is not for Human Consumption

I have been interested in legal drugs that get you high and wondering where they were when I was growing up. O.K. not really. I love to learn more about the denial that addicts go through when they no longer can see reality. I found that K2 was the new drug that was legal...

In a Desperate Attempt to Woo Republicans, Trump Becomes a Birther

A new possible contender is deciding whether he will run for president. Celebrity millionaire Donald Trump.  He said he will decide sometime this summer. I like the Donald. I even agree with some of his positions. Most I don’t. But to consider him for president I think we need to dispel some of the...

John Freshwater is Back in the News

For background, you can type Freshwater in the search box. Freshwater is the Mt. Vernon science teacher who after repeated warnings continued to teach...
