Maybe it’s the name

So Subway Jared is in jail as a pedophile. And soon, fingers crossed, his cellmate will be Jared Kushner.

Seriously, folks. We are expected to believe that Kushner met at the White House with representatives from two major lending institutions who then turned around and gave hundreds of millions in loans to his company. The defense he’s using… excuse me while I urp in my mouth a bit here… is that he has nothing to do with his company since entering White House service.

So based on that reasoning, I’m expected to believe that never once did the thought occur Continue reading →


Marian Assumpta Zeccardi

My mother in what I can only guess was the 1930s while she was either in high school or college. Clearly not married with kids given the unstressed look on her face. She lost that relaxed look soon after I was born.

I always dreamed about somehow waking up one day and finding myself as slim and beautiful as she was. It never happened. It’s a toss up about which one of us was more disappointed by that. Continue reading →


Some advice to Trump on working with his kids

Here’s how my family handled working with their kids when we were growing up. They didn’t.

My Uncle Joe and my dad both had stores… one grocery, one grocery and then beer. Both had sons. Neither thought working with that son all the time was a great idea. So during our teen years, my brother got a job outside of the store and my cousin Joe came down to the shore in the summer and worked for my dad. The theory was that while my cousin Joe might give his father grief and slightly get away with it, he knew Continue reading →


Anchorage Prop. 1 – bringing back discrimination against a group of people who have caused no harm

So the Anchorage Assembly a few years ago passed an equal rights ordinance that extends protection to transgender people. This action, which was really nothing more than basic humanity exerting itself on behalf of people whose voice is too often drowned out by hate in the guise of religion, has apparently sent some members of the conservative “Christian” right into a tizzy. They fume and squeal over how many straight male sex offenders will now dress up as women to try and get into the ladies’ restroom to do god knows what to god knows who.

So here’s my question Continue reading →


Lisa seems confused. Let me help her

This is only for Lisa Murkowski because, quite honestly, Dan Sullivan doesn’t really have any connection to Alaskans and so doesn’t care what we think and Don Young is just… well, he’s Don Young so no learning curve is possible.

Anyhow, Lisa apparently thinks the issue of mass shootings in schools is complicated and needs study. Well guess what. It’s been studied to death. The problem is the NRA just doesn’t like any ideas for stopping the violence that involves sensible gun legislation that is always one of the top recommendations.

So let me break this down for you as Continue reading →


Just imagine for a moment

Just imagine for a moment that Obama appointed his brother in law to a high position in the White House based on no discernible skills and then put him in charge of reorganizing the government, creating peace in the mid-east and handling all issues of cyber security for the White House. Now imagine a Republican congress finding out that Obama’s brother in law couldn’t get permanent top secret clearance and yet was allowed access to it for over a year. Hear those screams for impeachment?

Amazing, isn’t it, that there are currently no screams coming from this Republican congress. I Continue reading →


I’m either really bored or my mother has taken up residency in my head

Today is my Bird TLC day but because I am snowed in and my driveway won’t get plowed until the afternoon, I wasn’t able to go in today. So there I was up, dressed, dogs medicated and dogs and birds fed by 8 with my mornings plans canceled and too much coffee in me to go back to sleep. So what did I do? Well, so far I’ve:

1. Matched my Tupperware with lids and threw out all those lids and containers that had no mates. I matched approximately 12 containers with lids and threw out about 300.

2. Did Continue reading →



The POS currently sullying the White House would have us believe that if there was a school shooting and he was nearby, he’d run into the building with or without a gun. This from the man who got five deferments from military service because of bone spurs in his heels. Wouldn’t those spurs inhibit his ability to actually run into a building? To say nothing of his great girth which would mean his stomach would arrive minutes before he did.

Honestly, I don’t know what would be worse… hiding from a gunman or hiding from the POS – one would Continue reading →

The house that spit up and diarrhea attacked

My it’s been a fun weekend. Carm spits up liquid at least three times every morning if I don’t feed him enough or wait long enough after feeding him to give him his medicine. And Nayla, who has never found anything on the ground that she did not think was worth a try as something to eat, apparently got something down her gullet that messed her up big time. For three days she didn’t eat. She put out farts that emptied the room of not just me but the other dogs too. Then the liquid started out her butt. And Continue reading →


Who gives a crap?

So first the Rs release a memo detailing their version of the FBI’s activity relating to the Russian interference in our elections. Then the Ds released their memo on the same subject. And all I can say is, who gives a crap? You’d have to be an idiot to look at these memos as anything other than a political maneuver. Each put out what they want us to believe and shaded the facts to meet their already formulated theory on what happened. And it’s all just political crap that is taking up the time they should be spending on… oh Continue reading →
