Did you celebrate the 1-month anniversary of Donald Trump telling America that coronavirus would magically disappear?

Did you celebrate the 1-month anniversary of Donald Trump telling America that coronavirus would magically disappear?
Thursday was the one month anniversary of one of Donald Trump’s more memorable miscalculations. Ignoring the warnings of scientists, health care professionals and his own national security team, Trump assured America that coronavirus would magically disappear. In the rambling, incoherent demeanor of one performing fellatio on himself, Trump said, When you have 15 people, and... Read more »

Stupid people may believe Trump's nonsense about having coronavirus "well controlled," but savvy market investors know he's full of crap

Stupid people may believe Trump's nonsense about having coronavirus "well controlled," but savvy market investors know he's full of crap
To start, I’d like to apologize if you’re offended by the notion that you have to be stupid to believe one single word out of Donald John Trump’s mouth. I’m sorry because you should have already known that. If you ever get a chance to read ANYTHING or find ANY news source other than Fox,... Read more »

Yes, Trumpsters, we want to kill your cattle. And then we're going to cut them up into steaks

Yes, Trumpsters, we want to kill your cattle.  And then we're going to cut them up into steaks
Little Donnie Trump whipped a crowd in Iowa into a frenzy last week by telling them that Democrats want to kill their cattle. I guess that sounds pretty bad…until you realize that the whole point of raising cattle is to take them to slaughter. Bill Maher says that we have to learn to hate Trump... Read more »

2020 will be the year of non-Trump blogs; Little Donnie will not be mentioned even once

2020 will be the year of non-Trump blogs; Little Donnie will not be mentioned even once
2020 doesn’t even sound like year, it’s what my vision used to be.  Nonetheless, it will undoubtedly be a momentous year, perhaps transformational…and not in a good way, I’m afraid. Right now you may be thinking, Hey, he just mentioned Trump’s name in the same title where he said there will be no mention of... Read more »

Fox "News" incites without insight, leaving viewers under informed and over opinionated

Fox "News" incites without insight, leaving viewers under informed and over opinionated
Originally posted on September 9, 2019 Fox viewers are an angry bunch.  They seem to wear their MAGA hats as much to provoke as to proclaim. Anger is in no short supply in America, there’s plenty to go around.  Those of us not hardwired into Fox, though, are looking for solutions, not scapegoats. Fox viewers... Read more »

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency
On Halloween I posted a piece entitled, To lock him up or not to lock him up, that is the question for Joe and Mika.  I got some very spooky responses. Now that I’ve gotten all the makeup off my face, I can see that upon deeper reflection, there’s a little more to it than... Read more »

Who will tell Dumpsters that we already landed on the moon and Barack Obama is no longer president?

Who will tell Dumpsters that we already landed on the moon and Barack Obama is no longer president?
You may not know the exact date of our moon landing, but you probably know that we were up there. You’re also keenly aware that Barack Obama is no longer president and hasn’t been for almost three years.  You may even cry yourself to sleep just thinking about that very fact. I only bring this...

Kenny Weismuller's head is stuck somewhere, but at least he won't get sunburned

Kenny Weismuller's head is stuck somewhere, but at least he won't get sunburned
Kenny Weismuller (fake name) was one of two blasts from the past I encountered during a recent condolence call (shiva). Shortly after I arrived, a woman introduced herself as having been my high school shop teacher’s assistant back in 1967.  At the time, I was a junior and she was a senior and I may have...

The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world

The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world
According to Fox’s Brit Hume, Trump’s ‘go back’ comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactul (sic) and politically stupid.   Hume apparently uses the word counterfactual when he means lying. He also says that Trump’s comments simply do not meet the standard definition of racist.  He may have his own definition of standard definition. Any unbiased observer would be... Read more »

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over
Just about everything Trump is ridiculous and not in a funny way.  He speaks like a child, demands apologies after insulting people and his lack of historic reference is spellbinding. Revolutionary soldiers taking airports? Trump ran on a promise to “drain the swamp,” but instead has turned Washington into a toxic mix of nepotism, cronyism,... Read more »
