An amusing Fourth of July poem that celebrates living. Fourth of July When Life is Simple Grand Dad used to say, “Life is simple.” I thought silently, “Yeah, when you're 90.” Grand Dad used to say, “Life is good.” I asked him if it was good all the time. Grand Dad used to say, “Life goes up and ...

From Denny:  It really is past due time to get serious about dealing with the issue of World Hate.  Black people think it's "just" about historical racism aimed squarely at them.  Well, that's true - and it's also an ugly par...

  #politics   #economy  #news #worldnews #TPP #trade #labor   #business   #lobbyists   #Obama   #Asia   #unions   #employment   #USnews  #US #badidea #updates  - nothing like screwing over what's left of the hollowed out middle class for a Bush 2.0 "trade" idea that drives down wages in the US and eliminates yet more thousands of jobs. When Congress has to do an offset for evaporated jobs you know it's a really bad deal for American workers.

"The pen is mightier than the sword - and the Truth is as sharp as both." - Denny Lyon
Introduction

Bored with homogenized journalism?  Yeah, me too which is why I started all my blogs.  Deep thinking of the news and how it affects our lives along with lots of humor posts and much more from my 24 blogs. A free to read online newspaper from independent journalist blogger Denny Lyon. Sit back, relax, get informed, cook a little and laugh a lot:  http://dennysnews2.blogspot.com - where all the blogs link so you can peruse for your interests.

I'm a hybrid journalist-blogger which befuddles the publishing and journalism industries that are in serious flux these days - OK, the publishing houses have been melting down. What is not to understand? Time to rock on and catch up with the fast moving times. Hmmm... maybe I have Tiger or Dragon blood after all. :)

Social Issues Poet (SIP), Google searched as "The Social Prophet," abstract artist, photographer, life philosophy and spirituality writer, great cook. 

Writing eclectic interests on world news, American politics, great simple food and recipes, chocolate as the other food group, throw up some of my art, poetry, lots of great humor, astronomy and other sciences, photography - mine and other friends, spiritual and lover of people. 

Enjoy all kinds of people from the most artistic to those who think themselves not creative but have just not yet unlocked it.  

Yes, I LOVE people, even the annoying ones though no one ever said they would be immune from hearing from me about said bad attitude. :)

Keep the Joy in your heart and it will get you through anything that gets in your way in Life - a tried and true life philosophy from those who know from experience there will always be obstacles in Life.  Your will must develop to be stronger and sweep aside, leap over, walk around or just plain spit on those obstacles. Hey, whatever works, right?

Journalism degree from LSU: Geaux TIGERS!  (This is Louisiana where we take creative license when it comes to spelling.)
