Shaken, Not Stirred

Dateline, Tellico Plains, TN, 12-12-2018

I was jolted awake this morning about 4:12 A.M. Don't know whether it was by the sound of objects rattling in my bedroom, or by the fact that my bedroom itself was actually shaking – that's right, my bedroom was shaking ... which I quickly intuited meant my whole house was shaking ……

Not A Fish Story

    Mahi, the project that stalled due to the SCOTUS pick. It was just too fucking much. Thanks to OS for helping me. I Owe, those few of us who peck away yet. 

   Any way my third major post Osalon writing project has resumed...now 204 pages. I was stuck in 160s, when I cried out for help here. I feel better, even if I’m not any healthier than the planet I live on and off of. 

   December is tough, but I think I got it. I’m not home freezing my ass off, and that alone makes…

We are former senators. The Senate has long stood in defense of democracy — and must again.

Dear Senate colleagues,

As former members of the U.S. Senate, Democrats and Republicans, it is our shared view that we are entering a dangerous period, and we feel an obligation to speak up about serious challenges to the rule of law, the Constitution, our governing…

One Sentence Re Why Trump Shouldn't Be Impeached or Forced To Resign Before the End of His Term In Office

Just as Ford pardoned Nixon, Pence will pardon Trump and we will be cheated out of the trial and conviction that has been a long time coming....

1975: The Sting

      I was a cook at the Pour House in early 1975 , and if Al Capone’s daughter did not have a piece of that joint, well... I was lied too. I believed then. I was just eighteen, and had already decided that I did not want to tend bar. They tried me as soon as I turned 18, but I hated it. 

      I was a cook at seventeen after starting with pots at fifteen. I was running the kitchen at the Pour House ...part owned by Dave Monieer, but I did not know that until he came into the kitchen…

What Defines a Team Player

Has a liberal ever thrown him(her)self on a grenade?

This is a question for which I’m not sure there is an answer.  Individuals don’t go through life categorized as to conservative or liberal leanings, and the very definitions of liberal and conservative change over time.

This question first came to me at a much younger age, although not so clearly defined, when I first heard of soldiers sacrificing their own lives to save those of their comrades by throwing their body over a…

Chaos Verses Fascism

       I am not mourning my exile. I am celebrating my freedom and hard realized moderation. Of course I am, like most of us here...who still peck away on Our Salon, over the hill. Father Time has no power over me; My plan is in play and my fate is sealed. 

       Winter on the estuary is brutal. I look at the calendar and become content to be elsewhere now. Not so in early October, but that has passed, and now I would be wishing myself elsewhere as I had always done. Being cold and…

Can A Sitting President Be Indicted?

Current DOJ policy is The President of the United States should not be indicted while he/she is in office.

However, there is no law, Constitutional or Statutory, that would prohibit or prevent the indictment of a sitting President.

Answering the question posed requires a rudimentary understanding and appreciation of the difference and distinction between law and policy. The following is a very simple, uncomplicated, and demystified discussion and explanation:

"Laws and…
