Do Unto Others Forgotten in Jerusalem
What a farce when two under investigation leaders like Trump and Netanyahu sit and gloat over the dedication of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and consider it a condition for bringing peace to the middle east but I guess that is the very definition of farce, a comedic drama. Apparently other nations find it a... Read more »

Who Knew There Was No Fly in Man Panties? I Mean Underwear.

Who Knew There Was No Fly in Man Panties? I Mean Underwear.
What a shock! There are mens’ shorts with no fly. I often shop for my husband’s clothing, including underwear. There is a dizzying array of choices. There are prints, colors, boxers, briefs, bikinis and more. I automatically knew that my husband was not going to wear bikinis or the butt floss type so the most... Read more »

It really doesn’t matter that taxing sugary drinks might have helped to keep Cook County Health Services protecting the poor, disenfranchised, and those that can’t afford health care insurance alive. This might be especially important in this age of Trump and getting rid of the Affordable Care Act (mainly because... Read more »

Just recently a friend commented on one of my last articles. “ Gee, that was really in your face.” That’s me in your face. So is my sense of humor. Some things that are funny, like the things that strike Rachel Maddow strike me funny because they are so absurd that you have to laugh... Read more »

Deniers, Liars, Climate, Trump and Republicans

Deniers, Liars, Climate, Trump and Republicans
Let me start out by saying I do not believe in climate deniers. I believe they are liars.

Climate and the Continent or Why I No Longer Want to Move to Africa

Climate and the Continent or Why I No Longer Want to Move to Africa
As a child I heard my mother speak often of Marcus Garvey and “back to the Motherland”. She wasn’t particularly into the idea. She was just teaching me history, her living history. She didn’t just read about Marcus Garvey and his quest to use the money he amassed and the ships he could muster to... Read more »
