And here we thought Eric was the embarrassment!

One must seriously question whether or not Don Jr. actually has a brain or whether he’s just a slightly creepy automaton meant to represent the hero of Bonfire of the Vanities.

Not only does he meet with foreign emissaries to influence our election – something any right thinking American would find highly reprehensible and criminal… well, any right thinking American that isn’t a brainwashed, drooling evangelical Christian who thinks only liberals can sin… but he writes about it, talks about it, friggin’ admits it! Does he really think he is American royalty sitting above the criminal justice system so that Continue reading →

Hold on, Texas. Thoughts and prayers are coming your way…

Yep, America is now about to embark on another orgy of thoughts and prayers. We won’t do anything about the guns that are destroying us. We won’t do anything to fund schools so they can provide adequate help and counseling to troubled kids. We won’t pay for more community mental health clinics. And god forbid we do anything to piss off the NRA. They might shoot us if we did.

So you know the drill, America. Thoughts and prayers. Tears. Funerals that break your heart. Politicians telling you this is not the time to discuss gun control. The NRA saying Continue reading →

My immigrant grandparents were animals?

Wow. That POS currently sullying the White House sure knows how to be an asshole without seeming to even try. Is there not one adult in his circle willing to tell him that you shouldn’t say everything that pops into your mind without first thinking about how it might sound… you know, especially if you are currently pretending to be president of what used to be these great United States.

My grandparents were immigrants. And while they did not come from one of those countries POS thinks are shit holes, they did come here totally illiterate with few skills. All Continue reading →

Surprising headline of the day

Under the heading of DUH!, there is the startling revelation that indeed that POS currently sullying the White House paid his lawyer back for the hush money paid to a porn star who he violated while his wife was home with their new baby. Way to go, evangelical Christians. You certainly picked the right role model for your brand of crap.

Second fun headline of the day, also under the DUH category, the Senate (including Republicans) have announced that the Russians did try to interfere with the 2016 election. Welcome to 2018, guys. Most of us have know this for Continue reading →

If I hear this argument one more time!

OK, folks – especially you, Jeffery Perry of Eagle River – listen up. I am going to walk you through the logical conclusion of your argument that gun laws are useless because people will just break them. This argument points out that despite laws against murder, rape and robbery, all those crimes still happen. Despite the laws against drugs, drugs flood our streets. So the logical conclusion to this argument is that all laws are useless because people will break them anyway. So why are we even trying to criminalize those things? Won’t make any difference, right?

Seriously, are some Continue reading →

Mother’s Day

My mother and I didn’t always get along well. (That collective gasp you just heard was the sarcastic response of my family to that statement.) But no matter how tough things got between us, I never once doubted that if I needed her for anything, she’d be there in a heartbeat. Because that’s what moms do. They give you the last piece of cake, they put a bandage on your boo-boo even when you’re forty and they worry about the health of your bowel movements until the day they die.

So today we rightfully celebrate all things mother. And since Continue reading →

Are we really that afraid of people of color?

It’s been a depressing week of headlines about white people reporting black people to the police for existing in a place white people apparently don’t think they belong. While any week under this administration is depressing, this is about Americans hating Americans for no reason beyond skin color. Is this really who we are?

The current administration has given its blessing to racists and haters. Neo-nazis are marching in our streets in front of the aging eyes of the generation that fought to defeat them. Racists are running for office while openly avowing discrimination and hate as their platforms. Immigrants Continue reading →

I never thought I could hate someone so much

POS’ actions today, pulling us out of a nuclear accord that the entire rest of the industrialized world including Russia and China thought was good and worked well, has isolated us to a degree I never thought possible.

I mean, think about it. Russia, China and the European Union are all still in it and don’t plan to pull out. That isolates us from pretty much every industrialized country in the world. We could turn to South America or Central America or Mexico but… yeah,  they’re still mad about the rapists and drug dealers comment and our immigration policy of Continue reading →

You might as well put the hands on midnight

You know that nuclear clock that tracks how close the world is to blowing itself up in a nuclear war? Well, the POS currently sullying the White House has pushed the arms of that clock straight to midnight. I expect him to destroy us and contaminate this planet with nuclear fall out before the end of this year.

Every other 1st world nation and our own state department confirms that Iran is living up to its end of the bargain. Every other signatory to this deal calls it a diplomatic coup d’etat in successfully created a program that allows boots Continue reading →

Here’s what really discourages me the most

Sure, the POS currently sullying the White House carries the most responsibility for fostering hate, discrimination, homophobia and just about every other worse impulse in human nature. But he couldn’t win with that strategy if there weren’t a lot of homophobes and racists in America. And that’s what I find the most discouraging.

I had no idea the veneer of tolerance and compassion was so thin in America. POS didn’t have to scratch the surface very hard to find hundreds of thousands of people who feel they finally have someone who speaks to them. And that someone is a racist, Continue reading →
