About J. D. Groover

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)

CNN & Chris Cuomo

SOTU v. Democrats


Trump’s State of the Union speech was, in my opinion, an excellent forward looking speech. I do NOT consider myself to be a “Republican.”  I am a hard and fast Independent.  I will not EVER permit either party to tell … Continue reading

I didn’t get any of it, did you?
