Just a place to relax, read and either agree or disagree, but in good faith to all.  You won't find anything that you wouldn't share with someone you want to share something with in this area...It is just a place where I can tell you about the thoughts for the day and occasionally about a new book by myself or someone else...

Dump the Distress

Posted by Thomas Ault on April 5, 2020 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Dump the Distress When a person, man or woman, has been involved in their job for a long time, just staying home is a difficult thing to do. I know this because for many years I lived my job, at work, at play, even at home. Then I retired and about went stir crazy. I felt I had lost everything and discovered I needed something�?�anything would do. First, I discovered that when I was at work a lot of things were being done at the old home place that I had not considered before. For ins... Read Full Post »

Afghanistan

To: Opinion Editor 03-24-2020 Subject: Afghanistan I have to admit I have not paid particular attention when reading about foreign affairs, but after the article in today�??s paper (March 25) that tells us how much we are funding the Afghan situation, it occurred to me that I should pay more attention to what is going on. Perhaps more education is required for me to understand how and why our governm... Read Full Post »

Perspective - Virus

Posted by Thomas Ault on March 24, 2020 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Perspective I would like to thank the many people in this country who are doing their best during this crisis. At the same time I would like to admonish those that think could have the answers in advance, to unknown situations that suddenly appear, and be prepared. I wonder, as I listen to the news broadcasters giving us the very worst scenarios and frequent slanted news stories, why I continue to do that. We are in the throes of a serious health problem�?�it is bad�?�it will ge... Read Full Post »

Stupid is as Stupid Does

For the like of me I cannot understand how our politicians can, with a straight face, attempt to pull their usual shenanigans. Here we are in a pandemic and Charles Shumer, Democrat Senator from (of course) New York, is trying to force a bill he thinks is more important than the crisis we are facing by tagging it onto a much more significant one that could help the virus be slowed and maybe stopped by placing money into the right places to fight both the virus and the economic crisis. Are we ab... Read Full Post »

A Dream for Tomorrow

Posted by Thomas Ault on March 22, 2020 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Dream World It is not often that there is a situation the whole world is engaged in like this pandemic we are facing today. It appears to be something that every country is being plagued with. Are we overlooking this opportunity to unify as one global community, not separated by race, color, politics, gender, or country boundaries? Our military personnel are facing sanitary problems due to the government bringing home so many troops that they cannot be accommodated for by our military... Read Full Post »

Gossip

Posted by Thomas Ault on March 17, 2020 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)
Subject: Gossip Many of you will not remember the old gossip columnists and radio gossip personalities, but names like Hedda Hopper, Walter Winchell, and Louella Parsons might ring a bell with some of you. Walter Winchell used to start out with �??This just in!�?� Remember that? Today we have a new group of �??unauthorized�?? gossipers. I have no doubt that they are told to �??leak�?� information. It is always written in the newspapers �??speaking on the condition of anonymity because�?� yad... Read Full Post »

A Time in History

Posted by Thomas Ault on February 5, 2020 at 4:55 PM Comments comments (0)
THE CHOICE IS YOURS! Every major country in history, and every major country today, wanted or wants to be in charge. Each political hack that is elected, or takes control by force and fear, or perhaps is born into the position, wants his/her country to be the strongest, the richest, the wisest, and the leader of the rest regardless of a need for that endeavor. Our world is made up of leaders who have never, and will never, settle for peace when the temptation to be the country in charge is in... Read Full Post »

A New Direction

Posted by Thomas Ault on December 1, 2019 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)
Well, it is time for me to do something different...as many of you know we have been fighting cancer in our household for a year now and only the good Lord knows who is winning, it or my wonderful wife, Paulette... At any rate I can tell you that after a year of 24/7 caregiving, I woke up feeling a bit old the other day. Being around for so long has probably got something to do with the feeling...who knows for sure? There is a new Tom Ault book in the process....it is written and some folk... Read Full Post »

Christmas

Posted by Thomas Ault on November 27, 2018 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)
Shamefully, our country has decided to worship a buck rather than God. It also has chosen to attend a sporting even but never time for church. I am devoted to bringing more people to the realization that there is much more to life than having a good time and piling money in the bank. A few years ago, when most folks had nothing, or next to nothing, they had a wonderfully un-complex life. I don't know about you but when I was growing up the family didn't have money to spare. I had suit for Sun... Read Full Post »

Thanksgiving

Who Are We? A Thanksgiving Message More and more each day we are being rained upon with words from those who do not appreciate our country, and those who would like to see it become a different place than that which we were taught was our beloved United States of America. I am a Christian and I don�??t have any problem saying so! With that being said, I would like to point out some certain truths that our country was based on. The very first adventurers that came here to make a new home were... Read Full Post »
