There are Ways to Engage Trumpsters Without Coming to Blows

There are Ways to Engage Trumpsters Without Coming to Blows
Before we try to mend fences with those friends and relatives from whom we’ve been estranged these many months, some rules need to be established. These rules are hard, fast and non-negotiable.  Without them, we risk returning to chaos. First and most obvious of all, politics will not be discussed in any way, shape or... Read more »

Brothers and Sisters of the Resistance, Melania Trump is not the Enemy

Brothers and Sisters of the Resistance, Melania Trump is not the Enemy
Melania Trump has drawn the ire of the Liberal universe in a way that is totally disproportionate with anything that you can possibly accuse her of doing. The name calling is shameful and embarrassing. Michelle Obama is one the most beloved first ladies since Jackie Kennedy.  She’s smart, articulate and passionate in her beliefs and... Read more »

Christmas Magic Through the Eyes of an Atheistic, Natural Born Scrooge

Christmas Magic Through the Eyes of an Atheistic, Natural Born Scrooge
I just watched Miracle on 34th Street (the 1947 original, not the 1994 remake), so you’ve caught me at a vulnerable moment. I’m hesitant to say “vulnerable” because Donald Trump has forbidden any use of that word by the Centers for Disease Control. If you’ve never seen the movie, I recommend the original. Technology may... Read more »

How to Piss Off Donald Trump

How to Piss Off Donald Trump
Donald Trump was outraged one morning to find that someone had written in pee, “Trump Sucks” in the snow in the Rose Garden. After a full day of investigation, the FBI came to Trump and told them they knew whose pee spelled out that message. They said it was Vice President Mike Pence’s pee. Trump... Read more »

Hugest Crowd in History Attends National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Hugest Crowd in History Attends National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
The largest crowd ever seen on Earth attended the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony yesterday in Washington, DC.  It was absolutely bigly. If the size of the crowd in the featured image (above) is obscured by rows and rows and rows of empty seats, you will need to squint to block those out. You can... Read more »

What is it About Hookers that Makes Them Think They're Lawyers?

What is it About Hookers that Makes Them Think They're Lawyers?
Back in 2015 I become a partner in a building in Zion, Illinois.  Our first vacancy came a year later, when a long time tenant moved to Kenosha. She had always paid her rent on time and we were sorry to lose her. My partner, Jerry showed the apartment while I was away and gave... Read more »

Donald Trump's Letter of Intent to Melania

Donald Trump's Letter of Intent to Melania
One can only speculate about the state of Donald Trump’s marriage, but if Melania ever kicked his bloated ass out, he would probably write her a letter and have Sean Spicer read it aloud in a press briefing.  Following is that letter, as I imagine it: From the Orifice of the President   Dear my...

A Jewish Perspective of the Human Condition

A Jewish Perspective of the Human Condition
This is an old and a-bit-too-long joke that subtly highlights qualities that have enabled Jews to survive into the 21st Century: Wisdom, wit, patience and a finely honed sense of irony. Abe and Sarah had been married for 40 years, but Abe’s tepid performance in the boudoir had been putting Sarah’s boots to sleep. After... Read more »
