"Clear, Unequivocal Reassurance" We Made The Right Choice...

Couple of things afore we get started...

  • Caitlin Johnstone is one of my all-time favorite bloggers.  She totally rocks, IMO.  If you don't regularly read her, you should.
  • I'm sure "some" of you think I should quit riding Hillary...  to that I say, "TOUGH SHIT!".  I will get off her back the second she shuts the fuck up and goes far, far away.  As long as she…

Fallacy of Socialism and the Democrats

The Failure of Global Socialism

Like most of the false narratives being thrown at gullible and misled college students and the general public, the concept of allowing big government to create a gigantic welfare state to give everyone free stuff is not only…

Move Over, X-Files

     I very infrequently put up a post dealing with American politics. It's not much of my business, after all.

     But sometimes ... sometimes I just can't help myself.

     For example: A short-lived but wildly popular (among Trumpeters and alt.Reichers) website called Undergroundnewsreport.com (it had more than…

Climate change deniers write a federal budget (or, Paris is burning)

What do you get when a climate-change denying president appoints a climate-change denier as director of the Office of Management and Budget?



You get a climate-change denying budget.



The Trump administration’s “Taxpayer First” (FY 2018) is the epitome of climate-change denial. Not only does it propose draconian cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency, eviscerate federal climate change-related programs in all federal agencies, reduce federal spending on science research,… Continue

sotheby's (report to come)

I am not at liberty to say peep because I'm in the thick of it!!

phase one.  making inroads.  

phase two will mean making deeper inroads.  

we will get our money back legally because sotheby's did NOT act in good faith.  essentially they stole a deposit of $1000 from us because we trusted them.   

THIS WILL NOT GO AWAY!!

Thought For The Day - 1 June 2017

Ya think the shit kickers in West Virginia, and elsewhere, might be feeling a tad betrayed? Or, are they really so stupid that Guns, God, and Abortion will keep them loving Donald J. Quisling?



When Budget Director Mick Mulvaney assumed the podium in the White House briefing room last week and previewed the administration's 2018 budget, Heather Block's fears quickly…

Billy Strayhorn: A Short, Gay and Lush Life of Beauty

On December 2, 1938, a short, bespectacled young man named Billy Strayhorn persuaded a friend of a friend to arrange for him to meet Duke Ellington, the jazz pianist and composer, whose orchestra was in Pittsburgh for a performance.  After sitting in the audience while Ellington’s band played its first set, Strayhorn made his way to Ellington’s dressing room with William “Gus” Greenlee, the owner of two Pittsburgh nightclubs.  That Strayhorn met Ellington and not the leader of another band…

“Mom–I scored 100% on something!” she calls out with excitement.

“That’s wonderful,…

Sharing a Beautiful Piece of Writing

The following excerpt is from an essay by Rebecca Solnit: The Loneliness of Donald Trump.

This is one of the best pieces of writing I’ve discovered in a long time.  The link is with the author’s name at the bottom.  Her writing is illuminating, insightful, almost poetic and completely humbling.  The reference to the Old Fisherman’s Wife is from a Russian fable.

“He is the old fisherman’s wife who wished for everything and sooner or later he will end up with nothing. The…
