I don’t care if it’s just for old farts

Apparently, despite all the bad publicity it gets, Facebook is having trouble being the “hot” thing with the younger generation. I suspect that part of the problem is that on Facebook, you can write long paragraphs and sentences. That is, I’m guessing, difficult for the Twitter generation. Anything over 280 characters in a post just confuses them.

But it doesn’t confuse us old farts. We actually grew up in a time when you wrote letters that went on for more than two pages. We grew up in a time when long distance phone calls were expensive so writing letters was Continue reading →


College admissions scam

Here’s what I find most disturbing about this whole thing – seeing just how shallow, spoiled and thoroughly obnoxious the children of rich people can be when they think they’re getting away with it.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade not only bragged about not particularly caring about ever making it to a college class, but she also admitted that she rarely made it to high school. What a bratty piece of shit.

And where were her parents? How does your daughter skip high school and you don’t notice… or is it that you don’t care? Surely if you ever made Continue reading →

Why is anyone surprised?

I am always amused at the shock expressed by the media every time the rich are exposed as being privileged beyond what us mere mortals can imagine. Many of us aren’t shocked at all.

You see, most Americans (who aren’t Trump supporters) figured out a long time ago that the game was stacked against them. The rich are different from you and me and that difference is glaringly obvious in just about everything they do and say.

When you fly, you pray that the seat will fit your body, the person in front of you won’t put the seat back Continue reading →


I’m rooting for the jaguar

So by now I’m assuming everyone has read the article about the idio… I’m sorry… the woman who thought it made sense to jump over a security fence to get close enough to a jaguar to take a selfie. There is so much to unpack in that statement that I hardly know where to start.

I’m guessing I’m not the only one on the jaguar’s side. Sometimes you need to thin the herd for it to survive and the jaguar was clearly trying to help our gene pool by deleting this idio… woman. Because she should definitely not reproduce. And Continue reading →


Michael Cohen

So I listened to his testimony last week and tried to decide if he was telling the truth or not. On the one hand, he probably wanted this chance to clean up his reputation at least a little for posterity. On the other hand, he gains not much more than the possibility of that if he lies in front of Congress while meanwhile ensuring that he earns the enmity of that swath of the American public that views Trump as their god.

So why testify?

Well, part of it had to be to get a few digs in at a Continue reading →


We won’t stand for it

So the current governor of Alaska wants to cut benefits to the elderly. Hmmm. This wouldn’t be so bad were it not for the fact that here in Alaska, edible pot products can only contain 5 mg. of THC per piece. In California, each piece can contain 10 mg.

This is important because it means that 1. the government here in Alaska thinks our old hippies can’t handle pot as well as California’s old hippies and 2. cutting benefits while maintaining the high price of pot is something members of the Flower Generation will not stand for – mainly because Continue reading →


If you have not yet seen…

If you have not yet seen the video of Sen. Diane Feinstein debating school kids over climate change, it’s a must. It’s a must especially if you wonder why these children will be totally turned off by government and ready for a revolution in the very near future – assuming they have a future when we finish messing around with this earth.

In the video, she makes it clear to these kids that she’s the adult and she knows best. Given her age, you’d wish this were true but it’s not. Because what she failed to grasp is that the Continue reading →


It’s just hard

As time goes on and the POS currently sullying the White House continues on his path of racism, hate and billions for billionaires, it gets harder and harder to keep writing about him without just repeating myself. He is a disgrace to this nation. He is probably a Russian agent on some level. He’s a racist. He’s a homophobe. He’s whatever he thinks his base wants him to be at that moment. He’s destroying the checks and balances so carefully written into our Constitution. He’s already destroyed America’s reputation in Europe. After the name he called African countries, I’m guessing Continue reading →


Mean person = mean leader

Pick Trump or Dunleavy. Either one has shown what a mean-spirited weasel they are by their actions. POS declares a national emergency that he admits isn’t really a national emergency and then goes golfing. The man who claims to be Alaska’s governor – but represents absolutely no one I know – had some outsider submit a budget proposal that would destroy Alaska for years to come in order to avoid taxing Alaskans.

What assholes.

Dunleavy caters to the meanest of impulses in all of us. Give us something for free and we don’t care how much it hurts anyone else. Continue reading →


I do love fashion

I know that headline will come as a complete shock to anyone who has ever seen how I dress. So let me repeat what I’ve said so often: I love looking at fashion and seeing pretty people in fabulous clothes. I just don’t have any desire at all to either own or wear anything that isn’t a sweatshirt requiring no bra and pants with an elastic waist. It is not mutually exclusive to like those two things simultaneously.

So there I was scrolling through the latest looks from New York fashion week when I realized that I tend to have Continue reading →
