Location 444

  It seems I'm always seeing the number 444. According to the internet, it seems that I'm not alone in these frequent numerological sightings... Sometimes, it seems that things are not always as they seem... But usually they are.   #prayforthenumerologists

Two important observations so far from Mattis’ trip to Iraq…

The first observation: Mad Dog Mattis must be mad as hell for having to humiliate himself by being the face of our national apology for Trump's war-crime declaration that we should have and still just might take Iraq's oil; not to mention the fact that he, Mattis, has to tap dance around the fact that …

From Author Dave Astor: Guest Literature Post by Donald Trump!

I was considering writing a satire post (i.e., FAKE Post!) with its premise being our so-called president writing it as a Guest Author.

As I was getting set to channel Trump for the writing, I got cold fingers, so to speak, from the damage the channeling might do to my so-called brain; so, I backed slowly away from the keyboard, thought about it for a minute, then made the decision to search around to see if anyone had already done something similar.

I’m happy to have lost my courage to allow my brain to think as a non-reading Trump would and I am awe at the courage author Dave Astor possesses and the risks he was willing to take to share his brain and blog with him, for his sacrifices have allowed us to enjoy this reblogged post of his.

If you’re a reader of such things as “books” that are written with more than 140 words and that may contain troubling brain hurdles such as nuance and non-linear plot and plotless constructs, then you must check out Mr. Astor’s witty and wise blog.

Dave Astor on Literature

This blog will be different today, because Donald Trump demanded to write a guest piece. I told him he doesn’t read literature or know much about it, but he insisted. Anyway, things will go back to normal next week, but until then…herrrrrre’s the illegitimate president:

The Donald (me) doesn’t read novels, but I do read the backs of cereal boxes. Lots of back story, ya know?

Actually, I know a yuge amount about fiction. Not the literary kind — the “alternative facts” kind.

I can’t deal with The Wings of the Dove. Why didn’t Henry James write The Wings of the War Hawk? Sad.

The Red Badge of Courage? Stephen Crane — what a loser. Believe me, I showed more courage getting Vietnam War deferments for alleged bone spurs in my heels, even though I played a ton of sports at the time with no problem. They…

#BLAMEOBAMA

This is a Post About Rats

Ha ha... No, this is not a post about that rat. If it were a post about that rat, it would, instead, be entitled... "This is a Post About Evil, Hate and Violence-Inspiring, Narcissistic, Misogynistic, Megalomaniac, Small-Handed, Big-Mouthed, Orange-Hued Rats."

This is a Happy Post

  You know, it being The Holidays and all, I thought I'd get at least one last happy post in before the Electoral Collage votes to elect as our new president an orange-tinted, small-handed, mean-spirited, race-baiting, violence-inspiring, self-gratuitous, megalomaniacal, grossly garrulous Grinch hell-bent on taking over the world via twitter. Ho ho ho cough hack …

Ah, nothing like the smell of Trump and his supporters’ hypocrisy in the morning*…

....provided one enjoys the smell of BS. I mean, I love the fact that Melania Trump is in court today to attend a scheduling hearing for a defamation case to challenge the claim that she worked as a prostitute prior to her eventual gig as First "Lady." But, that's not the hypocritical point I want …

So it goes*…

Donald Trump attended the Army v. Navy football game yesterday - one of the oldest and most celebrated rivalries in all of U.S. sports. As a retired navy veteran, I'm sad to say that Army beat the Navy, something that hasn't happened since 2001. #blametrump *Pretty awesome that I using Vonnegut's fmaous asterisk to make …

Haiku, Senryū, and the Subtleties In Their Similarities and Differences

If I had a bit more courage and a lot more scholarship, I would have discussed the similarities and differences between a haiku poem and a senryū poem in the introduction of my newly released book of poetry Short Verses & Other Curses: Haiku, Senryū, Tanka & Other Poetic, Artistic, & Photographic Miscellany. However, seeing …
