What's This Where Was I When Was It Why Did I Who Inversed the Pyramid

We entered a hectic health club and let the tangerine nineteen fifty eight Chevrolet set. The spray boss had locked the bay as spiffed Canadians in the late rush hour from back and forth stopped for petrol. The dames dressed to the nines. Their men stood in bright shoes and chatted with the attendants who wore faded hats. The pump jockeys checked tire pressure or displayed dripped dipsticks, swashing windshields with horizon-colored bluesy…

Democrat Caused Border Crisis and how to Defeat the Deep State

 

With the recent vote to appropriate 4.6 billion to fund facilities and conditions of the thousands of illegal aliens who have made the trek to the southern American border and are now being housed by the federal government with ICE employees reduced to changing diapers in some cases, ask yourself what’s wrong with this picture? According to…

4th of July 1963 2 of 3 Short Story

After awhile dad sat, even though more people packed onto the bus than got off --- a festive atmosphere --- en route to the parade. Self-consciously he left the cooler in the aisle next to him, more embarrassed whenever the bus jerked or swayed, clamoring the glass and cans inside. We shouldn't have packed the whole icebox, I thought he'd be thinking. Well we got downtown, and they were right, throngs of people hurried in a controlled rush. I waited until my…

4th of July 1963 3 of 3

I leaned out through the gloss varnished walnut framed window, almost the mahogany color of the bow on a Criss Craft, resting my hands on the sunlit, green painted outer frame---some of the paint had a rougher, alligator feel. There was a steady breeze --- a summer wind --- out of the west, as a man on stilts walked by to hear me shout, "Hey!" and he heard me, looking up and waving as he adroitly began a zig-zag pattern holding his balance, yet able to…

"Where Are Your Shoes?" A Story of One Progressive Church Camp

This post was the first Editor's Pick I received over at Open Salon. I wrote it in 2010. On re-reading now I see how much I'd change it, the writing style, the length of it ~ but the essence remains the same. I likely will edit this and post it again, elsewhere, some day, but thought I'd re-post it as is this week, for this last week of OurS.…

The Best Death Money Can Buy

           Ah, the MIC, not being “they” to me; more like demented old aunts and uncles, who are hanging on to power out of fear. These once brilliant old folks are losing our shirts to con artists and extortionists while the world burns. 

           I knew them. I could always read their displeasure. They let me live in their world, and I am grateful. I don’t know them now, and don’t care too. I have grown up and moved on. 

            The Saudi’s behead and dismember. The MIC…

Problem Solving for Idiots (aka Trump Supporters)

I doubt that there has ever been a Trump appearance where some Trump supporter hasn't accused Obama of being born in Kenya.

It must get kind of embarrassing for them all to have such a poor grasp of geography (not to mention facts), so I have gone ahead and solved their problem for them.…

The Race for 2020: Political Calculus & Political Hard Ball

After last week's gaffe and dust-up with Senator Booker, the polls are indicating that Joe Biden is holding his substantial lead over the field of Democratic hopefuls. He remains the front runner for the Democratic nomination as the candidate to run agains Trump for the Presidency.....

Personally, I'm not happy about the prospect of Biden as the Democratic standard bearer for the next cycle but,  if it should come to that, I'm prepared to soldier on in the knowledge that if Trump and…
