America has an Emma Gonzalez and a Lying, Uninformed, Philandering, Self-Dealing, Traitorous Miscreant named Donald Trump.  To Whose Voice Should We Listen?
The voice of Emma Gonzalez has become the voice of a generation. So powerful is the message Ms. Gonzalez brings to America, that her four minutes of silence at Saturday’s March For Our Lives gathering in Washington brought America to tears.

Poor, Misguided Freddie Thinks that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Have his Back

Poor, Misguided Freddie Thinks that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell Have his Back
Freddie (not real name) likes to put an optimistic spin on things. It’s an admirable trait, but the operative word is still spin. Spin is not truth.

Is Vashti Brocoli a Russian Troll, a Real Live Deplorable or a 400 Pound Guy in New Jersey?

Is Vashti Brocoli a Russian Troll, a Real Live Deplorable or a 400 Pound Guy in New Jersey?
Much of the feedback from my little tirades comes from a group I call the “Whatabouts.” You know the type. When they’re guilty, they deflect from their crimes with, “What about what (fill in the blank) did?” For Trumpsters, the response to any of a thousand facts marking him as a liar and a traitor...

There’s a thousand reasons President Know Nothing should keep his mouth shut, but that doesn’t seem to curtail his constant dog and pony show. He feels obligated to comment on everything from football to the careers of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Alec Baldwin and Oprah Winfrey.  When it comes to anything of substance though, Dishonest Don is...
