Starbucks seems to be serving up a lot more than coffee these days

Starbucks seems to be serving up a lot more than coffee these days
For a place that sells coffee, Starbucks gets a lot of press.  And you thought “America runs on Dunkin’.” Starbucks is a signpost of civilization. It’s a weird green lady who says, “Give us your yuppies, your hipsters, your upwardly mobile, caffeine-addicted masses.” Who knew that non-fat, half caf, no whip, iced frappuccino could be...

The Independence Day atrocity that is Donald J. Trump

The Independence Day atrocity that is Donald J. Trump
Warning:  Donald J. Trump is stealing America’s celebration from YOU! Happy Birthday, America! If you’re wondering what the Fourth of July is all about, today marks the 243rd anniversary of the publication of the Declaration of Independence. The Continental Congress (a congress that did things) declared independence on July 2, 1776, but the American Revolution... Read more »

You can't have an opinion about a report you haven't read, so please shut the hell up and read it

You can't have an opinion about a report you haven't read, so please shut the hell up and read it
I cringe when I see Fox’s Sean Hannity rant the Trump line of “no collusion, no obstruction, complete exoneration…..yada, yada, yada.” Hannity is either a liar, an idiot or he never read the Mueller Report.  The three are not mutually exclusive. Worse is the mischaracterization and outright lies about the report perpetrated by a partisan,... Read more »

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?
I was once a proud Democrat and greatly admired Nancy Pelosi.  I’m still a Democrat, but the sheen has tarnished and Speaker Pelosi often leaves me gritting my teeth. No one on Law & Order ever said, “We’ve got a ton of evidence that this guy killed his wife, but we’ve got to be methodical.”... Read more »

Blue lives matter very much, but that does not equate to Black Lives Matter

Blue lives matter very much, but that does not equate to Black Lives Matter
In last week’s post, The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not, I brought up the subject of Blue Lives Matter being equated to Black Lives Matter. Blue lives matter. Very much.  All lives matter.  Neither one of those, however, equates with or diminishes the message of Black Lives Matter. Michael Brown, an... Read more »

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not
If you find the message in the above featured image offensive, you are not alone. In fact, I’m flabbergasted that this is a commonly held belief. Even if it’s not a commonly held belief, it is certainly a commonly repeated fabrication. The logic of the whole reverse racism thing is almost enough to make me... Read more »

"Attorney General" William Barr is the new Michael Cohen

"Attorney General" William Barr is the new Michael Cohen
Note: “Attorney General” appears in quotation marks in the above title because it is a nominal position for Mr. Barr.  He is no more the Attorney General of the United States than I am the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Michael Cohen was Donald Trump’s fixer.  That is an undeniable fact, no matter... Read more »

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and he is the underdog: Interesting responses

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and he is the underdog:  Interesting responses
Some interesting responses appeared in my inbox after I posted a blog entitled, Trump’s ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog. Go figure!  Insults and death wishes don’t bother me (much), but I had a hard time wrapping my head around the barrage of misinformation assaulting me. Then, while... Read more »

Excerpt from my letter to Robert S. Mueller III

Excerpt from my letter to Robert S. Mueller III
Dear Bob, We asked for clarity, but all we got was ambiguity and a situation like the great blues player, Muddy Waters. Clearly, there were millions of folks out here hoping that you were going to finish up by handing Trump a GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL card. I admit that such a scenario crept into my... Read more »

Mueller's comments, for your convenience

Mueller's comments, for your convenience
On Wednesday, May 29, Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a surprise appearance behind a Department of Justice podium to comment on the report his office released to the Attorney General. Realizing that few people got to see Mueller’s appearance and fewer still will read the 448 page report, I decided to put out the transcript... Read more »
