There is no collusion, there is no collusion, there is no collusion. Maybe not, but there's plenty of conspiracy

There is no collusion, there is no collusion, there is no collusion.  Maybe not, but there's plenty of conspiracy
The following was previously published.  It’s a little cheesy re-posting it, but not nearly as cheesy as Donald Trump’s constant refrain of, “No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.”  For every ten times Dishonest Don says, “No collusion,” someone needs to stand up and say, “But your son says you get all your money from Russia...

Would America be surprised to find out that Sean Hannity is just another lying scumbag in the Trump Mafia?

Would America be surprised to find out that Sean Hannity is just another lying scumbag in the Trump Mafia?
Sean Hannity wants attorney client privilege with a man who he had claimed had never acted as his attorney.  Fake newscaster or soon-to-be singing canary? That’s all I’ve I got for now.  Have a good weekend. On another note, here’s a couple of book reccos for your springtime reading: For anyone who remembers Dwight Eisenhower... Read more »

No, Terry Quinn, semi-automatic rifles do not have legitimate civilian uses

No, Terry Quinn, semi-automatic rifles do not have legitimate civilian uses
I recently read an article in Colorado’s Vail Daily entitled, “Semi-automatic rifles have legitimate uses.”  You can read it yourself by clicking HERE. The article, written by Terry Quinn  is a collection of worn out, specious and disingenuous arguments. Mr. Quinn’s remarks are sound bytes from the NRA playbook. The nomenclature is irrelevant. Whether you... Read more »

America has an Emma Gonzalez and a Lying, Uninformed, Philandering, Self-Dealing, Traitorous Miscreant named Donald Trump. To Whose Voice Should We Listen?

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. Gonazlez’s four minutes of silence were more powerful, more truthful and more impactful than... Read more »

Should We Care if Donald J. Trump Slept with the Star of "Happy Endings?"

Should We Care if Donald J. Trump Slept with the Star of "Happy Endings?"
The answer to the question above should be “No.” What private citizens or reality TV show guys do behind closed doors is their own business. If you’re talking about President Donald J. Trump however, answering that question gets a little trickier. If Dishonest Don wants to sleep with adult film actresses or Colin Kaepernick, it... Read more »

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear: Update

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear: Update
I wrote a piece last month entitled, “Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear” which focused on the image above.  It’s still a lot to take in, but some readers reacted strongly. Interpreting the image may be a case of beauty being in the eyes of the beholder or people... Read more »

Here's Why I Burned My NRA Card

Here's Why I Burned My NRA Card
The following was originally posted on November 4, 2016.  It has been edited and re-posted: I burned my NRA card because I’m fed up with their obstructionist policies, fear mongering, lying surrogates and phony 2nd Amendment arguments. NOTE:  You can save yourself the hassle of reading this by clicking HERE to see the video. The... Read more »

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear
The above advertisement caught my eye as I thumbed through a magazine while cooling my heels at the Denver airport. It’s a lot to take in. There’s a casual, but urgent proffer of weapons of annihilation.  I’m not anti-gun but let’s face it, the AR-15 is exquisitely designed to inflict catastrophic damage to flesh and... Read more »

With New Indictments, It Looks Like Dishonest Don Sold Out His Country Long Before He Announced His Candidacy

With New Indictments, It Looks Like Dishonest Don Sold Out His Country Long Before He Announced His Candidacy
Dishonest Don wants you to believe that the thirteen indictments announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday exonerate him. The beauty of Twitter is that you can tweet out your delusions to your heart’s content. Trump-appointed National Security Chief H.R. McMaster had another take on the indictments. According to McMaster, the evidence that... Read more »

Chain, chain, chain. Chain of fools

Chain, chain, chain. Chain of fools
We are all chained, in one way or another.  We are slaves to the inner workings of our minds and to the circumstances we’ve created in our lives.  For better or worse (mostly worse), we act the way we are wired to act. Only one form of migration however, can be described as “chain.” African... Read more »
