La La La La La La La…

Missed Trump's big speech last night. Not because I was balled up in the corner of my dark and damp basement with my eyes closed and ears plugged chanting la la la la la la la to drown out any possibility of hearing it until it was over. No, I missed it because I mercifully … Continue reading La La La La La La La…

The Night The Lights Went Out In America…

Ever since that cursed night when #youknowwho was elected, every time I see an image of the beautiful Lady Liberty with her torch held high shining her warm and welcoming light of liberty and freedom all throughout the land, I am now, sadly, always reminded of the song The Night The Lights Went Out In … Continue reading The Night The Lights Went Out In America…

With Eloquence: Booker T. Washington

Remember when we as a people wrote and spoke with informed eloquence? Yeah, me neither... But I was reminded such a fairy-tale time did, in fact, exist when watching former senator and Secretary of Defense William Cohen introduce retire Marine Corps General James "Mad Dog" Mattis to the Senate Armed Services Committee prior to its … Continue reading With Eloquence: Booker T.

The Political Semantics of Designating Evil Properly

So, I was cleaning out my dashboard's cluttered "Draft" folder when I happened upon this article that, apparently, I, with my lingering chemo-clouded brain, forgot to post after penning it so long ago. Because I'm lazy and don't feel like writing something fresh, I'm posting it now. To be honest (my Spidey senses always tingles … Continue reading The Political Semantics of Designating Evil Properly

Fake News is so Poe-thetic

I read an Edgar Allan Poe story today entitled The Angel of the Odd. It's a fun, fast, Kafka-meets-Twain, easy to forget kind of read. But what is most memorable to me about the story is that it is entirely set up around the protagonists drunken dismay over what we would call the "fake news" … Continue reading Fake News is so Poe-thetic

#BLAMEOBAMA

In case you've never watched the following video of President Obama roasting The Donald to a humiliating crisp thereby motivating him, The Donald, to not just run for president (he had already kind of done that) but to run and win regardless the cost or the damage done in order to destroy Obama's legacy you … Continue reading #BLAMEOBAMA

A Forest of Lies

A Forest of Lies

Or THE ART OF THE DEAL LIE Or WHEN TRUMP SPEAKS Or Ah... forget about it. You get the point, right? Right. So anyway... I like the fact that Dan Rather is trying hard to stay relevant by calling out the editor of the Wall Street Journal for not calling Trump's lies lies: So this … Continue reading A Forest of Lies

"I Fantasize Shooting Trump Down…"

Hey! It wasn't me who said that (out loud anyway)... T. I. raps it on a version of Anderson .Paak's hit song "Come Down." It appears that, for the time being at least, publicly declaring that you fantasize shooting a president-elect is protected speech. I wonder if Trump is aware of T. I.'s fantasy. I … Continue reading "I Fantasize Shooting Trump Down…"
