Ignorance scares me?

Ignorance scares me?
The other day as I was driving, I tuned into Neal Boortz' radio show - for a few minutes. That's all I could take of him.

Boortz, a libertarian who doesn't believe in global warming, has a call-in show. A listener called in to ask Boortz what was wrong with people believing in global warming? In other words, what harm does it do even if Boortz and those who think it's a scam, are right?

Boortz' reply was simply - "Because ignorance scares me."

Hmmm. Let's try that again. The listener asked again and got the same reply, which was not an answer to his question.

Too often these days, when you "get" a egotistical, always right, know-it-all person with a question they actually have no rational response to, they just insult someone or make a totally childish comment delivered quite profoundly to hopefully shut up the non-thinking world of listeners who form their opinions based on what they hear on the radio or through other media. Boortz is good at that.

What harm indeed?

We are to be good stewards of this planet. Whether you believe in God and the laws of the universe He set forth, or whether you believe in karma, most of us know that we reap what we sow.

How terrible is it that we cannot drink the water without treating it chemically?

How sad are the unbelievable numbers of asthma sufferers?

How devastating are the number of cancer deaths?

If you plant a garden in your yard, do you not nurture it and protect it from outside perils that would take away your harvest? Of course you do!

Is this planet not the garden of humans? I say it is.

Let's take care of it, in spite of people like Boortz.

By the way, ignorance scares me too, especially when their ignorance is being broadcast for millions to hear.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
