5 reasons to skip Thanksgiving dinner and 5 reasonable excuses
The following was first posted on 11/22/18.  It was written for a non-COVID, second Trump Thanksgiving, but seems appropriate today.  Have a happy Thanksgiving and please stay safe out there: Thanksgiving can be stressful and this year will be worse.  That I can tell you. Other than sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top, I’m not... Read more »

The featured image above gained attention when it was thought to be a picture of Brian Kemp (left) and Gregory McMichael (right). Kemp, former Georgia Secretary of State, is best known for stealing the governorship from Stacey Abrams, refusing to recuse himself from overseeing an election in which he was a candidate.  His crimes include...

Used car grifting 101

Used car grifting 101
Grifting:  1. Swindling or cheating  2. Obtaining money by fraud or illicit schemes Did a car dealer deliberately drill holes in my car and then lie about it? would have been my only blog about used cars if our son hadn’t asked for help finding one.

Is Brett Fryar crazy or is civil war inevitable?

Is Brett Fryar crazy or is civil war inevitable?
If you google Brett Fryar, you’ll find that he’s a 50-year old chiropractor in Lubbock, Texas.  Checking his reviews, which average 1.5 out of 5, the first thing that pops up labels Fryar as a quack and a crook. Could a quack and a crook find a better cult leader than Donald Trump? Fryar is... Read more »

Wouldn't it be grand if the pee-resident of the White House fought to save American lives as hard as he's fighting to keep a job that he refuses to do?

Wouldn't it be grand if the pee-resident of the White House fought to save American lives as hard as he's fighting to keep a job that he refuses to do?
That’s really all I have to say about that.  Except that it’s criminal that one candidate can receive over SIX MILLION MORE VOTES than the other and his victory still be called into question. What does a person have to do to win in this country?  Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security called this the... Read more »

Eleven presidential campaigns with no one crying about rigged elections. Then came Trump

Eleven presidential campaigns with no one crying about rigged elections.  Then came Trump
I cast my first presidential ballot for George McGovern in 1972.  Not an actual McGovern fan, it was more of an anti-war, anti-Nixon vote. The war in Vietnam needed to end, as did the presidency of Richard Nixon. I’ve voted for winners and I’ve voted for losers.  Never did I think that the only fair outcome... Read more »

Count or stop counting? Is this as good as it gets?

Count or stop counting?  Is this as good as it gets?
This was an election like no other.  Not only did more people vote than at any time in our history, but one side doesn’t seem to understand that the results of the election determine who gets to live in the White House. This is a confused and poorly informed group of malcontents.  The split screen... Read more »

Are you sick of what passes for patriotism these days?

Are you sick of what passes for patriotism these days?
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” – President Emmanuel Macron Originally published on November 11, 2017: There’s about 4,800 homeless veterans in Los Angeles.  Luckily, they’re in L.A. and not here in Chicago, where it was 20 degrees last night. Happy f**king Veterans Day. Do you think any of... Read more »

Whoever wins, America is lost

Whoever wins, America is lost
It’s Wednesday and we’re still counting ballots from yesterday’s election.  Right now, Joe Biden is leading the electoral college votes, 238 to 213. He’s also ahead in the popular vote by about 3 million, but we’ve seen that one before. As expected Donald Trump declared himself the winner and falsely claimed that election results must...

Ronnie returned to his doctor to get his test results and the doctor told him that he has a very aggressive form of prostate cancer and needed to start treatment immediately. Ronnie, being a loyal Trump supporter and misinformed prisoner of the Fox bubble, pulled out his pistol and shot the doctor. After all, if... Read more »
