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!!!

One-Armed Bandit Captured in Florida

One-Armed Bandit Captured in Florida:  A bank robbery suspect caught police officers by surprise when his prosthetic arm popped right off during his arrest.  Needless to say, the handcuffing didn’t go well.  Police arrested and charged the man with “arm robbery.” …

Italians need to speak up against the anti-immigrant madness

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

I’m tired of Italians in this country who either support the anti-immigrant/anti-refugee policies of the new ultra right wing administration in Washington, or who remain silent and don’t raise their voices in support of the immigrants being targeted.

Don’t these Italians remember or even know about their own family’s history in this country?

If you’re Italian and think that certain people, like Muslims or Syrian refugees, should be registered or…

President Trump (shortened rant) after Doc Vega - a free verse poem (without permission)

Truly privileged, Willfully ignorant

Trump favor(s) Sharia Law

Recently the President raped, (and) robbed with impunity.

But what about the average citizen?

They will unleash a barrage of social unrest, this one of the driving facts addressed by Trump that got him elected!

“Useful Idiots”

They will continue to support the assassination of police officers under the aegis of false narratives.

This is the new America, divided!

Emotional Burnout

I tried, but I just can't do it. How do people maintain a passion around trauma? I am speaking specifically about the generalities of politics here. Fair warning, I won't be able to read anything about specifics so please keep your replies theoretical.

I am afraid of my Facebook page. Too many of my friends no…

The Sylvia Plath Foreclosure Sale

I grew up surrounded by females.  My dad owned a women’s clothing store.  Both of my sisters were girls, and my mom was a woman.  We had two female cats whose names–Big Kitty and Baby Cat–could have been taken straight from a Eudora Welty short story.  As far as I know, the box turtle in the basement was female, too.

As a result, I am uniquely well-equipped to…

When a Nation gets in its own way

Is the US getting in its own way now?

When I was growing up (1950s and 60s), we could see the difference between western Europe which was beginning to prosper after the devastation of WW2 and eastern Europe which was stifled by communism. The lesson we drew was of how ideology could stifle progress - that sometimes a nation can’t get out of its own way.

In the years since, communism has disappeared. A few communist parties may survive, but where they do, in China and North…

The Weight Of Gold



Everyone in the neighborhood hated the New Guy. "He's a creep!" "He's a jerk!" "He's a hypocrite!" "He's a liar!" said the creep, the jerk, the hypocrite, and the liar. A meeting was called to find a resolution.

The Use of Strategies and Tactics in Defeating Trump and the Alt Right

As those who did not support Mr. Trump for President attempt to deal with a new reality and plan ways to regain congress and the White House, it is time to look at what went wrong in the last election and how we might act differently in 2018 and 2020.  For those who do not have a military background it’s useful, perhaps, to look at the use of…

Trump and Peña Nieto Talk on the Phone

Trump and Peña Nieto Talk on the Phone:  Amid an escalating crisis between neighboring nations over a border wall, President Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto had what Trump characterized as a “constructive” and “productive” hour-long telephone conversation.  When asked to sum up his view of the conversation, Peña Nieto took a line from an old Pink Floyd tune, saying “all in all, he’s just another prick with a wall.”…

Oddly Hopeful

I thought I would be at my hermitage for a week end retreat today. I reserved it soon after the election. This was my first free week-end and I knew I’d need it by now. I do but I’m not there. Last night a friend called. Her husband was put on life support and she’s given permission to take him off. “I need you.” I didn’t tell her my plans, how happy I was leaving work that day knowing the next morning I would escape for three days of quiet, walks in the woods, time to sleep, read, think,…
