Thick as Thieves, Those Damned Irish!

[best read with a drunken, Irish brogue] Is this a case of Spy vs Spy?  Could we have Ryan vs Ryan in the House of Representatives?  We already have Paul Ryan as Speaker.  Now Tim Ryan has tossed his crumpled, tweed paddy cap into the ring to be House Minority Leader.  I suspect a conniving […]

Ha-ha-ha! [gasp, gasp] Ha-ha-ha-ha II

A Smack in December; a Punch in the Face in ’17. It might be mused that Steve Bannon will be a good foil as Special Assistant to the president. But he lacks an important quality. He doesn’t come across as a bootlicker. Trump, so far, has demonstrated that he makes decisions based on how many […]

Ha-ha-ha! [gasp, gasp] Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Do you remember Charlie Brown in the classroom, when he says something embarrassing and as his classmates laugh, he is surrounded by the words Ha-ha-ha in giant letters across the screen? I imagine intellectually honest Trump supporters, who are paying attention, have been feeling like CB for the last few days. “Trump tells it like […]

Keep Calm You Feckin Eejits

Keep calm. Good advice. This title is emblazoned on a tee shirt my wife gave me. It’s a green shirt with a shamrock on it. You get the idea. It is not helpful that we’ve elevated the office of POTUS to the level of royalty. It is not helpful that people who should know better, […]

Greg Gutfeld "stole" my stuff!

Greg Gutfeld has obviously been reading my stuff.  Well, I think he has.  I’ll have to have the Russians hack his computer and get back to me. But tonight, on The Five, GG made a very specific analogy in a very specific way.  I have made many references to the Clintons being like Pigpen from […]

Darrell Castle: Dull to the Dull-Witted.

We live in a world where the two leading candidates are a shallow criminal and an inarticulate populist. Neither is what they claim to be, but a credulous electorate is turning hand stands trying to believe them. Why? Because everybody else is doing it.  In such a world, Darrell Castle will appear dry and dull, […]

McMullin was Under My Radar!

I will get to Evan McMullin in just a bit.  In the meantime… I haven’t had a chance to comment on the latest happenings.  I have been doing battle with a fire-proof tree stump.  It is day 15 since I set fire to it for the first time.  I pre-treated twice with potassium nitrate, let […]

What Do I Know, Anyway? Experts! [bemused]

Once again, months after reality was established here, the “experts” are finally catching up. A recent example is when Charles Krauthammer said he was finally getting the Trump effect. People had tired of the same old formulaic, often weak-kneed Republicans and wanted something new. They found Trump’s brash delivery irresistible. That was on FOX Special […]

Jill Stein: A Gift to the American Liberal

Jill Stein Age: 66 Education: Harvard Medical School, Harvard University Party: Green Party of the United Sates Running Mate: Ajamu Baraka There are millions who consider themselves to the left of center who would like to break the mold this year. They are dissatisfied with a candidate who tells Goldman Sachs she has a public […]

A Love Letter to "Minorities" [smirking]

Do We Need to Obsess Over “Minorities”? If America was living up to its full potential, or even half so, there would be no use for the term “minorities”.  What thinking human being gives a hot goddamn what color your skin is, who you have sex with, whether your name ends with a vowel or […]

A Lesson in Lib Think!

I am working very hard, here and on Social Media, to prevent the desecration of the Oval Office.  By that I mean I want to defeat Trump and the felon.  But I decided to take a short break to provide a lesson in Lib Think. Despite my incredibly low opinion of him, I have to […]

The 24-Day Revolution: video 2

How many people can we break free of the two-party trap?  I will take the 24-Day Revolution live starting Friday night (21 Oct).  the big myth right now is that a vote for anyone but Trump is a vote for the felon.  this is flatly false.  A vote for Castle, Johnson, McMullin or Stein is […]

Relax. Breath. Assess.

I wrote this in May and forgot all about it.  It has been in my Draft box since. do I have my finger on the pulse or what? My son mentioned Gary Johnson in a text today. It is the second time someone had mentioned Johnson in a week. It makes one think. So sit […]

Economic Suicide or Economic Suicide: You Pick!

Gary Johnson is a dork. He couldn’t pick a world leader he admires. He forgot what Aleppo was. He made a really goofy joke about winning the debate with his tongue sticking out. And I don’t care. Here’s why. Our Path to Economic Suicide The economy is on life support. Soon, it will be time […]

My Wall is Better Than Trump's Silly Wall.

I Still Can’t Believe Trump Is Serious! In a campaign season dominated by the ridiculous, one recurring theme stands out, Donald Trump’s border wall.  To a person opposed to illegal immigration, as I am, the idea of building a wall to keep illegals out sounds like a good idea – for about six seconds.  It takes […]

Debate: The Real Result = 0

The first debate of the general election is in the can.  And as I warned repeatedly, in the book and here, all the felon had to do was talk.  She could have recited nursery rhymes.  She may as well have since ALL of her points were general socialist crap the left has been shoveling for […]

F**k the Russians! Clinton is the threat!

The Russians?! I get a kick out of the Democrats, dumb Republicans and the obedient media harping about how the Russians might be trying to screw with our elections.  Hell, we have a whole lot more to fear from the felon/candidate scamming us than the Russians. There has never been a better time to address […]

Gary Johnson and Abortion

Damn it Dale!  You’re making me think! I have been friends with Dale Romine for years.  I respect his opinions; even the ones I disagree with.  One can’t dismiss Dale out-of-hand.  One has to think to have a conversation with him.  Dale has been reading my posts about Gary Johnson.  He considered my information and […]

FBI: Federal Bureau of Insolence ("Goons")

As I have said repeatedly here, the FBI has been reduced to a goon squad. No one there has the fortitude to do the right thing; the constitutionally correct thing. Even when presented with a chance to wash their hands of the stench of this administration’s corruption, the FBI opted to ignore Congress’ oversight and […]
