Wow. The headline in my morning news feed reads, “President cedes moral authority to Big Business .” If that doesn’t wake you up by scaring the bejesus out of you, I don’t know what will. Continue reading →
Given that the current occupant of the White House has declared loudly and frequently that he only likes winners, one has to wonder what he sees in some of the groups who supported him so strongly during his run for the presidency and who now claim their votes put him into office.
Let’s take a moment to recap what these white racist groups admire the most. For starts, they claim to want to take America back while defending and adulating a country – the Confederate States of America – that fought a war to separate from America. The Confederate flag Continue reading →
The headline reads, “Trump’s threat to North Korea was improvised”. If that doesn’t keep you up at night, I don’t know what will. Nuclear War brought to you be the head clown of the Improv Troupe now occupying the White House. Continue reading →
Fox News is really having a rough year. Not as rough as the years women working there had to endure a culture of sexual harassment, but a tough year nonetheless. Yet another employee of the organization, host Eric Bolling, has been suspended for texting lewd photos of male genitalia to women who had definitely not asked to see them. Given how badly this type of activity has gone in the past (can you say Anthony Weiner?), one has to wonder what these men are thinking when they indulge in this creepy pastime.
I’m not a prude. I’m well aware that Continue reading →
That is the only conclusion that can be drawn from the recent release of telephone transcripts between the asshole in the White House and the president of Mexico and prime minister of Australia. On top of which, if you read the transcripts, he is almost incoherent with some statements and with others just sounds plain stupid. His version of these calls was a total lie. Not misleading but lies.
How low can America sink? Well, with the Liar in Chief at the helm, it seems as though there is no bottom to the bottom. Continue reading →
As I’ve mentioned here before, I was born and raised in an Italian immigrant community. As such, I feel an overwhelming sadness that Anthony Scaramucci has come to represent that honorable group on a national stage in any way, shape or form.
Growing up, I often heard my mother say that the streets were not going to get her son. I had no idea what she meant. The streets I knew were safe and full of people who were neighbors and friends. Even when the Godfather movies came out and my mother refused to go because of their portrayal of Continue reading →
Trump and Trump Jr.’s original statement on the Russian meeting was not “misleading”. It was a friggin’ lie. A big, fat, unabashed lie. And if Hillary had told it, the Republicans would already be impeaching her while demanding that she be jailed. What the hell is wrong with the Republican Party? Is winning some elections or passing some bill in Congress more important than the moral health of this country and the person who (for some, not me) leads it? Where is their outrage? Talk about unAmerican. The Republican Party right now is a hotbed of unAmericanism by their silence Continue reading →
On behalf of all Italian Americans, please allow me to apologize for the travesty called the Mooch who is now sullying the White House. He does not represent anything we stand for. Continue reading →
I’m not sure when the idea of equal rights became so scary to a very conservative portion of the Christian right, but it has. And so a petition has been filed with the Anchorage City Clerk’s Office to get the question of equal rights for all Anchorage citizens on the ballot. This ballot measure would be an attempt to take away equal rights from a certain portion of our population that the Alaska Family Action group, headed by Jim Minnery whose wife spearheaded the petition, doesn’t like.
That’s right, I said doesn’t like. Because under all those flowery words of Continue reading →
