I welcome you to UMOC193’s Blog. Other content on here will provide some of my personal and blog background and reasons for presenting the material I do.

I have addressed a variety of topics on here, though most veer toward the political. I offer strong opinions, with a decidedly liberal slant. However, most of all I aim for the truth. That is, I strive to present my opinions within a factual context, though my conclusions might be quite different from another person using the same factual basis.

That is what makes for a “good horse race”.

I suffer occasional lapses into what is euphemized as “adult” language. I don’t do so very often because then such language loses its power to emphasize a particular point.

I also deal with non life and death topics, most usually sports and popular culture. Frequently my treatment of those topics will be decidedly more light-hearted because of their less severe ultimate consequences.

I use humor to make points as well as to entertain. The humor may be droll, satiric, sarcastic, ironic, wry and even truly funny, though I will never be remembered in the same vein as George Carlin or Richard Pryor

If you do discover amusement here, great. But most of all I hope to provide pieces that make you think, whether you agree with me or not. Comments are always welcome and I will respond when appropriate.

Thank you for “tuning in”.

    3 things:

    1.) Am in desert eating locusts. Can’t post on P-G these days.
    2.) It was Peter who denied Christ 3 times.
    3.) Tell mugsy that a good X-ian would give the hungry man a meal AND his coat, with no prompting from either a priest or a goverment rep.

    He (mugsy)m knows that. The best believers are the converts.

    Peace – Out,
