Others have already dealt with Gen. Kelly's duplicity in his accusations against Rep. Wilson. They're right, and he lied. That's that.
OTOH, none of the pundits I've read/heard have considered the event the got this all started: what (and, likely, how) Donald J. Quisling said to Ms. Johnson. In Kelly's re-telling of the conversation between him and Quisling, he provided to Quisling the context of what he and his senior officer did in the same circumstance: offer the 'he knew what he…Continue

Scene from The Flim-Flam Man (1967)
We are living in intentional continual uproar
I honestly didn’t know whether to write continual or continuous. The uproar in Washington has been almost non-stop since Beast 45 assumed office; really it has been since he began running for office.
I mentioned in a previous post that a friend…Continue
Trump Still Claiming His Fake Renoir is Real: Even though its been well documented that the real Renoir "Two Sisters (On The Terrace)” painting has been hanging in the Art Institute of Chicago since 1933, President Trump continues to insist that the one hanging in his New York apartment is real. Yea, and I’m guessing he believes his Van Gogh self-portrait is real too - even though the ear was actually bitten off by Mike Tyson. What tickles me is that he…Continue
The house where I spent most of my childhood no longer exists except in my memory. It was a modest wood frame three bedroom house with indoor plumbing and no heat other than space heaters in the bathroom and dining room. During the summers I read in an easy chair with a west facing window in the living room. The World Book Encyclopedia, mother’s Book of the Month selections, and assorted religious references were in the arm’s length book case.

While watching the baseball games yesterday, I noted (for the first time, I suppose) that the home plate umpire wore glasses!!! The country has gone to hell in a handbasket. The only reason I could see this abomination was because the ump caught a foul off the mask, which he took off for a bit, on camera.
So, off to the innterTubes to find out how long this degradation of America's Game has been going on. I expected a few years, at most.…Continue

"The place of honor that Mr. Downie occupies in Canada’s national imagination has no parallel in the United States. Imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Michael Stipe combined into one…Continue

Internet Buzzing Over Melania Trump Body Double Conspiracy: Melania Trump has become the center of a wild body double conspiracy theory after people began saying the woman who appeared on the White House lawn alongside the President in a trench coat and sunglasses didn’t look quite the same as Melania. If you ask me, the answer’s quite simple - Melania is a robot and the factory provided several copies for Trump’s use. Of course, another other explanation…Continue
