Poor Melania

Not only did she apparently have to at least once have slept with that jiggling tub of lard she is married to, but when she tries to actually say or do something nice, he just gets thrown in her face anyhow. So today when she tweeted about it being ‘do a nice thing” day or some such shit, she gets slammed for not making her husband nice first.

I’ll bet she thought she won when she bagged him. Now she realizes it makes her one of the biggest losers in the history of mankind.

Maybe we need to start a Continue reading →

It’s a brave new world in which women and people of color are determined to participate

The current occupant of the White House has some fairly fanatical supporters who wish we could just go back to the good old days of the 1950s when America’s economy was thriving, women were secretaries and men ruled.

Not for long, but for what now seems like a brief five minutes in my life, I learned that someone you think you love can be unbearably cruel both physically and mentally to you. And what that happens, the initial confusion makes rational decisions difficult to impossible.

What price fame?

Can you see their faces? I can. They are beautiful young ladies with impossibly toned bodies who perform amazing feats with those bodies. They always seemed so fresh and young and innocent. They represented our idealized dream of the all American girl.

But we must once again ask ourselves what price we are willing to pay for fame. We must ask why, given what has happened in other institutions like Penn State and the Catholic Church, organizations still think the best way to handle a bad situation is to protect the organization instead of the people being hurt. It is Continue reading →
