A Note To Myself From 21 Years Ago

JUNE 1ST AGAIN

I sat beside Rob’s bed just holding on to his hand. When he began to take long deep breaths his face became distorted and I knew that each breath could be the last.…

Georgian Neo-Nazis Throw Sausages at Vegans

Georgian Neo-Nazis Throw Sausages at Vegans:  A screening of the Adult Swim series Rick and Morty at the Kiwi vegan cafe in the country of Georgia was interrupted when a group of neo-fascist skinheads entered and began throwing grilled meat, fish and sausages inside.  Good grief, I believe that was about the wurst story I’ve ever read.  What was their beef with the vegans anyway?  Didn’t anyone bother to tell these neo-Nazis that Hitler was a…

Good good good good news. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good news

I got an apartment.

For me and the boy.

Subsidized, so I should be able to afford it.

But it's more than just an apartment, it's an opportunity.

I will share more tomorrow, when I am not utterly wiped out.

It's very very very very good news.

I knew you'd be happy to hear, so I came right over to tell you all.

The Trump Who Scares the GOP

.......

Emperor Nero

Classical Narcissist

The problem the GOP has with Donald Trump is not solvable.  Politicians are notoriously self-centered, but they understand that, for the most part, supporting the party is good for them.  Trump, however, does not think that way. There are cries from the GOP leadership for unity.  For them that means…

Poetry - The Real Jersey Shore

I am a true son of New Jersey, hence I love the shore.  Our shore - the Jersey Shore.  A place we know well, and love whether it is cold and rainy, or warm and foggy - or maybe the skies are clear blue.  We even love it after a summer thunder storm, when a lightning strike blows the power in one of our under powered shore towns.  …

Young Man at the Door

My neighborhood has had a deluge of teens selling magazine subscriptions. I get magazines in the mail without ever ordering them. I get letters offering to use my unspent airline miles for magazines. If I wanted to read magazines, I would not need to buy them.

With my aging eyes, the computer monitor is easier to read than a magazine printed on glossy paper.

Yesterday’s teen was different.  I saw the clipboard and said, “I’m not going to buy any magazines.”  

He said,…

tap dancing to the music in three parts! (buying and selling a house pt 180,003,597)

don't mind me.  I'm tired of counting these hellishly hellish episodes.  

but today it's all good.  

PT ONE -  we demurred (love it!) from purchasing the heap o' ants and trouble, so our agent and I did serious scouting, seeking a new landing strip for the monkeytown team.  

I am I.  not we.  we didn't go.  we don't want to look anymore because we…

Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Hypocrisy (Really?)

The Flawed Character of Hillary Clinton Part II

In examining the behavior of federal government officials we are most often led to believe that they are acting in the best interests of the American people. That they are honorable and trustworthy simply because they have been elected is a misguided notion. For decades now the US media has literally chosen our candidates using an unholy alliance with the White House to create an echo chamber of half truths repeated enough to convince voters to elect those of questionable…

The Flawed Character of Hillary Part I

Defining Hillary Clinton’s Policies 

For us to digest the content and agenda of Hillary Clinton, a forgettable Secretary of State, who accomplished little, we must analyze her narratives, her code speak, and the misdirected truth she often…

The Rise Of Donald Trump

They proclaimed that he was not to be taken seriously. His detractors said that there was no chance that he could succeed. The GOP spent Superpac money to fund negative ads to support his opponents Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Many Republican leaders vowed "Never Trump!" and refused to support Donald Trump if he…

Mon Petite Philosophe

We knew Simone was a special little girl almost from the moment she was born.  Her two older brothers, 11 and 8 pounds at birth respectively, had cleared a path for her like pulling guards on a student-body sweep play, and she had literally popped out of her mother’s womb after an easy delivery.



A smile of satisfaction as she completes her first syllogism!

 

She didn’t cry as newborn babies are expected to do.  Instead, she looked around the…

Blobfish Voted World’s Ugliest Animal

Blobfish Voted World’s Ugliest Animal:  In a vote announced at the British Science Festival, the blobfish was voted the “World’s Ugliest Animal” and is now the mascot of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society.  Not to be mean, but it does kind of remind me of something I coughed-up the last I had a bad cold.  On the other hand, in all fairness, this picture was taken when it didn’t have any makeup on.  I mean, couldn’t they have at least used a picture where it…

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Beyond all politics behind any war, words cannot adequately express how grateful we are to all you who fought for our freedoms, fallen & living. A priceless gift.

Nazi Muff-Diving: It COULD Happen Here

Memorial Day marks the traditional start of summer, and with it beach reading. An unexpected by-product of summer’s lower intellectual standards is that one’s literary risk-reward ratio expands exponentially, the way pole vaulting records were shattered by quantum leaps when athletes abandoned aluminum for fiberglass. Pick a mildewed paperback off a bookshelf in a vacation house–one that you’d be ashamed to check out of your local library for fear it would be cited in a future Senate…

A Detailed Review of One Republican's Ideas

For my Republican, I picked Paul Ryan.  He is Speaker of the House, ambitious, handsome and reasonable in tone.  He play-acts the character of the responsible adult in a room full of children.  Whenever he appears in public to a general audience, he tells America that we should have a contest of ideas. He often adds the word Freedom as if he is defending freedom (from Democrats, presumably) but is vague, so never tells us just how Democratic oppose…
