Donald J. Trump May Have Cleared the Way for Harvey Weinstein to be President of the United States
It took a guy like Donald J. Trump to make it possible for a guy like Harvey Weinstein to become president. And trust me, the horror of that statement is not lost on its author. I am not a fan of Abraham Harvey Weinstein.  He is a sexual predator and a despicable human being. Our... Read more »

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax
Note: Between the time I wrote this piece and the time I hit the “Publish” button, the NRA has asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review whether “bump stocks” comply with federal law.  I’m going to need time to digest this new development, but I plan to err on the side...

The story below was published about a month after the death of CPO Ryan Owens, a decorated member of  SEAL Team 6.  Ryan’s father, Bill has been pushing the Pentagon and the White House for answers about the death of his son. Much has come to light since then and I urge you to join... Read more »

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray
It may be rude to say that Donald J. Trump is a jackass, but that is an unavoidable conclusion.  I apologize to anyone offended by that image, but it may be the least offensive noun I have to offer. It’s not that his lies, big and small are legendary.  And stupid.  Most times they contradict... Read more »

Colin Kaepernick Should Stand During the National Anthem, but We Need to Defend his Right Not To
NOTE:  The following was published last year, at the beginning of the #takeaknee brouhaha.  I still feel the same about the flag, but there is much about my country of which I am not proud, not the least of which is an unrepentant, untruthful, uninformed president who stokes the fires beneath that which is most...

Embracing Nazism May be Trump's Best Shot at Re-election
If this was AOL, I might use words like “shocking” and “jaw dropping,” but “nauseating” is the word that comes to mind as I report the following: Donald J. Trump’s support among Republicans JUMPED after he defended the “fine people” marching with Nazis, Klansmen and other assorted racist assholes.  Not surprisingly, more than 60% of... Read more »

Many Who Celebrated Today's Eclipse Shun The Science That Led Them to Carbondale, Illinois
Tens of thousands of “eclipse chasers” flooded into Carbondale, Illinois today to bathe in the corona of a 2-1/2 minute total eclipse. It was a rare occurrence and I admit that I considered going down there myself. I’ve glimpsed at the occasional meteor shower and I think I watched some kind of eclipse with my... Read more »
