Gee. All the things T has done – 'University' scam, the birther insult, ruining contractors, then during the campaign all the shit about Clinton, currently the cruelty of this travel ban, hey I haven't got room to list (Lorianne, another whole website please), none of that matters, but if someone slights Dear Leader (“Don't they know I'm the effing president”), then he and his enablers spray tears all over the landscape (but…

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

The fact is, I'm torn between concluding that Kim Jong-Don is pathologically evil or ditto stupid. Today we have his pronouncement that Federal regulation process is now, by his fiat, blown up. He, or Bannon (who knows better, or ought to), asserts that agencies make up regulations over their weekly poker games at high end DC men's clubs. Well, no. Federal regulations, published daily in the Federal Register, are the agencies' responsibility to…

Customs Inspection at LAX 1990

Why doesn't this surprise me: Border agents defy courts on Trump travel ban.  It's really nothing new.

I worked for Beta Magnetics Shenyang Computers, a Joint Venture Corporation, in the People's Republic of China for a year in 1990-91. 

In the early 1980's my boss, Mark Yaftibadi, came to the USA along with his…

Do You Remember?

Do we remember a leader who exploited his people’s fears in order to rise to power?

Do we remember a leader who scapegoated the “other”—those who looked, sounded, or worshiped differently—to give his people someone to easily blame rather than an agenda on which to pin real but hard-won…

OH MY GOD!  Trump you child murdering BASTARD!!!

The above statement came out of my mouth this morning after reading about Trump authorizing the serial killers known as Seal Team Six to murder 10 women and children in Yemen.  As is usual for these cowards they used a Reaper drone to commit this slaughter.  

MANY Democrats are rightfully condemning Trump for…

Mathematics and Beauty

One Sunday morning, following the visiting speaker’s sermon that dealt in some way with the beautiful, the service leader asked members of the congregation to put forth the things they found beautiful.  Finally, a retired professor of physics stood and asked whether anyone found mathematics beautiful.  No one admitted to it.

As someone who finds beauty in a lot of different things - music, art, nature – I was made to ask myself whether I had ever found beauty in any mathematical…

Your Workplace Romance Advisor

The perils of romance in the workplace are so widely known they are summed up by figures of speech familiar to us all: Don’t dip your pen in the company ink, don’t get your meat where you get your bread, don’t put your hand on Lurleen Wingo’s honking big . . . wait, that’s not a metaphor.…

Betting Line

OK, so Kim Jong-Don has gone into blatant dictator mode, ignoring all agency heads in issuing the Muslim ban.  So we're left with the over/under times to suspending the Constitution and declaring martial law (starting with Chicago, of course).

1 Sentence: Bedazzled, Enamored, & Will Be Beaten

The unstable and anti-intellectual Far Left and the equally anti-intellectual Thug-Right...both become so bedazzled by and enamored of their own ego-driven, invective-laden hate they wholly, often deliberately, confound heat and light to a moment when they forever no longer give a damn what or whom they destroy, justifying madness and evil as easily as they spit…

One Sentence Question for a Sunday Afternoon?

How long do you think it will be before either, or any, party fields a woman or a person of color as the head of the ticket in a presidential election?

An Old Political Experiment and Mousetraps

I'd imagine most of you from Open Salon remember a blogger by the name of Markinjapan. What most of you probably don't know is that I once wrote a post for him. 

For those of you who didn't know him (I believe he still has an account here, though he doesn't use it): MIJ is a 1960's antiwar radical. I used the proper tense here: "is"…

Magazine Magnate Tackles Latest Venture Sitting Down

BOSTON.  Norman Rathkind is what business writers refer to as a “serial entrepreneur,” having started, built and sold a number of publications over the course of a twenty-five year career.  “Recreational Running was my first hit,” he says, recalling the magazine that was an immediate success as it hit the market at the precise time the jogging craze swept America in the ’70’s.  “I focused on ‘recreational’ running to distinguish it from running from the IRS–or a first wife with a butcher…

Here's the thing about Trump's ban....

First of all, it is NOT a ban on "possible" terrorists...  it is a ban on people who have to flee their homelands because the US, under both Democratic and Republican administrations, bombed their homes and murdered their families.  

...and yes, Democrats need to own this more than even Republicans do because it was them doing the bombing and supporting the REAL terrorists in Syria FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS!... not to mention…

what is happening in the emoluments lawsuit against drumpf? nerd & others.and with him not restricting people from saudi arabia, egypt and turkey, where he has investments?

this is fucking crazy. it's all crazy. and i'm fucking crazy.

those countries are exempt from the ban on muslims entering the country. saudi arabia was a major player in 9/11. and drumpf has investments in those countries. i don't know what that is called but it is certainly an emoluments Thang.

drumpf isn't whining about that lawsuit so he clearly hasn't received notice of it yet. he has to receive notice. i want him to lose what is left of his tiny mind!!!
