Westminster Dog Show to Include Cats This Year

Westminster Dog Show to Include Cats This Year:  The New York Times is reporting that cats will be joining the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this year for the first time in its 140-year history.  Personally, I would’ve gone with ponies instead of cats - that way, it could’ve been a “dog and pony show.”  But gee, there’s just so much love in the world.  Makes you wonder why the Patriots and Falcons don’t allow the Red Sox to join them in the…

Where Government Works

This isn't a political piece. It's a personal one.



This summer, my family moved from North Carolina to New York, upstate, not near the City. the population here isn't huge - nothing like small town, but not huge. What surprises me is that various government functions I'm used to being a royal pain in the ass simply aren't. People are friendly, competent, helpful.



Snow plows. I've lived in areas with snow before, including northwest central Indiana, but plowing was always… Continue

i'm not a fan of oregon. but our protestors & senator rock. bannon & fucking 45/the putz has made me fat. that is an impeachable offense for sure.

so i'm very proud that there are protests every day here. there is no let up. the protestors are committed and mostly peaceful. they did the same things during Occupy. so many of them has nothing else to do but i am still proud.

the other positive thing. Jeff Merkeley is our senator and he is a good guy, an excellent guy. (and very cute which is just a side benefit.) he's on Rachel Maddow tonight as one of the Dems who is fighting to get 41 of the 48 senators to filibuster the supreme…

Lest We Forget....II

Excerpt form the Conway, Bannon, and Trump alternative facts version:



"Give me your tired, your poor,



Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,



The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.



Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,"...



as long as they're from white, Christian, capitalist countries...



God bless America, and no place else!....



With no apologies whatsoever to Emma Lazarus or anyone else for that… Continue

The Apprentice, Supreme Court Edition

SO ... T has summoned the two finalists for Supreme Court to a televised announcement tonight, where one will be chosen and the other dismissed in person in front of the entire country. Is this normal procedure? I mean, for government, not The Apprentice.

The Unreal Level of Misinformation in America

You can hear it on the fake news from TV each night. You can read it on the Internet from websites that allege to be news sites. The false righteous indignation, the typical liberal talking points, the last gasps of an exposed paradigm destined to be allocated to the funeral pyres of history.…

the color of racism and bigotry is ugly

the color of racism and bigotry is ugly



racism is at best a cancer but unlike any other there is no cure

there is no such creature as a little racist or giving support minus the color thing

it does not work that way   racist or not racist   no other option

to not speak out every time racism raises it ugly is but to…

For One Maine Family, Change to Fake Logs Brings Pain

AROSTOOK, Maine.  Lowell Bader has been in the lumber business in the Maine North Woods for over forty years, and his roots extend back two generations further to his grandfather Asa.  “Everything I need is right here,” he says as he surveys the family’s timberland.  “Everything except high-speed internet connections, frozen lattes and a video store that stocks something besides Chuck Norris films.”

Conning the Ship of State

This started out as a comment on Kosher's blog, but the analogy struck me so I decided to follow through on it...for those of you of a non nautical bent, to “con” a ship means to Captain it, including but not limited to the “steering” of the ship. I like the term because, as it applies to the Imperial Presidency, the term “Con” has a nicely political meaning as well......





Trump IS dangerous, but his…
