What If Nazi James Alex Fields Had Rammed His Car Into Chloe Instead of Heather?

What If Nazi James Alex Fields Had Rammed His Car Into Chloe Instead of Heather?
You don’t know Chloe, but I can assure you that she is one of the sweetest, most delightful young women you will ever meet. The thought of a delusional maniac like James Alex Fields causing her harm causes me physical pain. But it could happen. After many events, both large and small I tend to... Read more »

JEWS GET OUT: A Message From Donald J. Trump, Even To Jews Who Pretend Not To Be

JEWS GET OUT: A Message From Donald J. Trump, Even To Jews Who Pretend Not To Be
Donald J. Trump sent a message loud and clear to anyone not willing to make excuses for our excuse of a president. If you’re not one of those Mike-Pence-what-he-really-meant types, you heard an unmistakable message from Charlottesville, Virginia to Bedminster, New Jersey. “Blut und Boden” roughly translates to “blood and soil.’ It was the Nazi...

After Starting a Race War, Embracing Terrorism, Igniting a Nuclear Holocaust, Invading Venezuela and Handing the Keys to the White House to Putin, What's Left for Trump to do to Make America Great Again?

After Starting a Race War, Embracing Terrorism, Igniting a Nuclear Holocaust, Invading Venezuela and Handing the Keys to the White House to Putin, What's Left for Trump to do to Make America Great Again?
Once again, it seems that I’ve created a headline that defies expansion. I admit that I don’t know where to start on this one and, once started I would lack the skill to find a place to end.  There wasn’t even room in the title to mention the whole destroying-the-planet thing. Perhaps I should consider... Read more »

So Many Cringeworthy Moments, So Little Time
The last Wednesday of each month is usually designated for Blogapalooz, a writing exercise that gives ChicagoNow bloggers an hour to write about a topic provided at 9:00 PM. Today, however I got the following, unexpected email from editor, Jimmy Greenfield: “Welcome to ChicagoNow’s first-ever Surprise-a-palooza! Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is...

Is It Possible That Even the Most Progressive Among Us Can Suffer a Bout of Deplorability?

Is It Possible That Even the Most Progressive Among Us Can Suffer a Bout of Deplorability?
If you’ve been here before, you know that I’ve been rippin’ on Donald Trump since he first threw his hair into the presidential race back in June of 2015.  I’ve had only contempt for the man since 2011. I was also quick to snatch up and use the term “Basket of Deplorables,” first coined by... Read more »

FBI Probe Uncovers Hidden Clinton Emails Detailing Conspiracy With Iran

FBI Probe Uncovers Hidden Clinton Emails Detailing Conspiracy With Iran
The headline above is FALSE.  I made it up and I had to move the part where I say it’s false up here because people were only reading the headline and sending me nasty emails.  Hopefully, that will soon be the subject of a future blog. All of us read headlines through the lenses that... Read more »

CNN Fired Reporters Over Faulty Sources, Fox Only Fires People for Sex Crimes

CNN Fired Reporters Over Faulty Sources, Fox Only Fires People for Sex Crimes
The battle for the minds of America is underway and, as in all wars, truth was the first casualty.  In this war, however it is the objective of one side to permanently obfuscate the truth with “alternative facts” and completely fictitious representations of past and current events (lies). Which leaves the future in question. I’m... Read more »

¿Quién es peor, Kathy Griffin o Bill Maher?

¿Quién es peor, Kathy Griffin o Bill Maher?
The headline reads, “Who is worse, Kathy Griffin or Bill Maher?” I don’t know why it’s in Spanish, it reminds me of the ¿Quién es más macho? thing from Saturday Night Live. It would seem that Bill Maher’s little brain fart last month was more offensive to more people than Griffin’s “Ode to a Chopped... Read more »

No Reason for Outrage Over President Dumbo's Attack on Mika Brzezinski

No Reason for Outrage Over President Dumbo's Attack on Mika Brzezinski
The internet is atwitter -pun intended- over Donald Trump’s latest tweet storm, this one aimed at Mika Brzezinski, of Morning Joe fame. As is usually the case, it’s a challenge just trying to figure out where to begin. Seth Meyers introduced a new segment on his Late Night Show entitled, “I Can’t.”  Trying to think... Read more »
