Rockin’ with The Donald in the Nothing’s for Free World

According to this Rolling Stones article, this is his favorite song: Ah, I'm just kidding...

Like we Americans do, I tend to assume everyone the world over understands my cultural references…

Yeah, I know, I know... It drives some of you bonkers when we Americans do that... Just as I know that, thanks to the long-established American cultural propaganda machines of Hollywood, McDonalds, Levis, and Coca Cola, as well as the newcomers Apple, Facebook, Twitter, and Starbucks, it drives some of you just as bonkers, if …

Three Men Walk into a Bar… [Satire Saturday Prompt]

First off, you may have noticed that today's prompt is not of the #SonnetSaturday sort as originally advertised. Yeah, about that...
