Yesterday, Donald Trump defended Putin’s ordered hits to kill people who opposed him to “mistakes” America has made. Oh sweet Jesus! If Obama had said that, the Republicans would have already had him impeached. But what are the Dems doing? I don’t know. It’s hard to say because you can’t understand their statements so long as they remain curled up in a fetal position whimpering. Continue reading →
A friend just called to ask if I wanted to go to an early dinner… and by early, he meant 3:30 or 4.
Are we really that old that we want to go to dinner so early that even the early bird specials aren’t yet on the menu? Continue reading →
So it’s about 1 AM and I’ve let the dogs out for the last time. I go upstairs and unzip my bathrobe preparatory to getting into bed. Only the zipper does that stupid thing where it starts coming apart at the bottom and you can’t pull the zipper all the way down. And the harder I tried, the more the bottom part came apart. I was now stuck in a bathrobe with a zipper stuck right around chest high. I couldn’t get my arms out to either pull it over my head or pull it down to get out of Continue reading →
I thought sixty was bad. But turning seventy really, really sucks. I don’t know why. But somehow seventy just seems old while in the sixties I could still pretend to some level of youth. And honestly, how the hell did I survive this long given the lack of respect I’ve shown my body over the years. I guess I’m not done rescuing animals yet so it’s just not my time. Besides, I still have one more tattoo to get. Continue reading →
It’s a sad day for our community when it loses a good man. This seems especially true at this dark moment of the American soul. As hate, racism and kitty snatching become the touchstones of our country today, losing a man who lived with dignity, compassion and love for all his fellow creatures is even more distressing. It sometimes seems as though good men are in very short supply right now.
So the news that last week we lost Dr. James Scott, founder and heart and soul of Bird TLC, is sad on many, many levels.
For those of you Continue reading →
Am I the only one who thinks Trump deflated Melania after the inauguration and put her in a box until the next time he needs a frozen statue standing next to him? Continue reading →
Even Dick Cheney thinks Orangeman’s ban on refugees is unAmerican. This from a man who supported torture and starting wars that benefited his company at the expense of the lives and limbs of some of our best and brightest. If this is not a sign of the apocalypse, I don’t know what is. Continue reading →
They marched in minus 38 degrees in Utqiagvik. They marched in a snowstorm in Anchorage. They marched by the millions around the nation and there was not one violent confrontation, not one arrest, not one complaint from the police that the crowd was unruly or disrespectful. Their strength was in numbers. And what numbers they were!
Plus, women try their best to do things peacefully when possible. On the other hand, push us too far and you will find out just how violent we can get.
Orangeman and his minions may offer something they now term “alternative facts” but the Continue reading →
Orangeman has made me ashamed to be an American. We are a country of refugees and immigrants… at least those of us who can’t claim Native American or Alaska Native blood. And now we’ve closed our doors and become a country I simply no longer recognize. Continue reading →
So let me see if I’ve got this right. Orangeman puts his billionaire friends in positions where they can make great profit while screwing the middle and lower classes then institutes hateful policies to distract his racist followers from noticing. Have I got that right? Continue reading →
