By blogjb / September 27, 2017

Why I Love Gregg Popovich I coached and ran a large basketball club for a dozen years, but can’t say most sports figures, coaches, entertainers impress me much when it comes to GETTING IT. I love Greg Popovich because he gets what is wrong with our president and this country. Below is a quote from […]

Hate, Generalizations & Divisions

By blogjb / December 12, 2016

I love certain kinds of people who happen to be brown, black, white, rural, urban, American, foreign, conservative, liberal, religious, atheist, etc.None of the above identifications tell us much, in and of itself, about character. I love honest, hard working, decent, compassionate, innovated, intelligent, rational people who come from every group I’ve listed, characterizations that […]

When Will It End?

By blogjb / September 20, 2016

I hoped to go a day or two without feeling compelled to write anything about race, cops, and shootings. Instead, an attorney friend emailed me the footage released a couple of hours ago of the latest white cop shooting a black man in Tulsa. At best, this is a case of another cop who is […]

Why It Is Personal – White & Black Bigots need to Chill

By blogjb / September 20, 2016

I’ve devoted a lot of time the past couple of years to challenging racists/bigots of every color and type. For me, it’s personal. Bigots cannot say “Black People” or “White People” without offending me. Dark and light bigots have been getting on my last nerve for three decades. I love white and black people, and […]

FREE SPEECH – STOP PISSING ON THE 1ST AMENDMENT

By blogjb / September 1, 2016

Political correctness (on all sides) prevents Americans and humans from conversing the way we need to about important issues. It seems every group of people operates like gangs whose primary purpose is to deny people their first amendment right to free speech. These packs of mind policers can’t stop pissing on the First Amendment. If […]

Too Many Negative Vibes

By jerrybeller / August 10, 2016

There’re too many negative vibes in Americans and humans. How about we take a day in the United States and the world to celebrate what we have because we live today. Only those at the very bottom have the right to be angry. All the other complainers are bellyachers as generations before would say.  FOCUS […]

White People, Black people, Brown People

By jerrybeller / July 30, 2016

Everybody stop using “WHITE PEOPLE” or “BLACK PEOPLE” or “BROWN PEOPLE” unless what you’re talking about pertains to everybody who ever lived in one or the other race. It’s usually bigotry when somebody starts a sentence with “White People” or “Black People.” No race holds a monopoly on character, honesty, strength, courage, humanism, common sense; nor on […]

Let’s Stop Pretending this is the Worst of Times

By jerrybeller / May 1, 2016

I watch the division that runs rampant across every continent and can’t help wondering what’s wrong with us humans. It seems we wiped out all the other similar human species and then turned on each other. Must we be so ganglike and divisive? Aren’t we capable of better? Let’s Stop Pretending this is the Worst […]

Facebook Friends – Less is more!

By jerrybeller / January 19, 2016

Most people want ten zillion Facebook friends, but I just want a few real friends. I’ve auditioned over 2,000 Facebook friends the past couple of years but decided it was mostly nonsense. Deciding less is more, I’ve been trying to scale down to 100 real friends. FACEBOOK FRIENDS – LESS IS MORE! Of all the […]
