Is Vashti Brocoli a Russian Troll, a Real Live Deplorable or a 400 Pound Guy in New Jersey?

Is Vashti Brocoli a Russian Troll, a Real Live Deplorable or a 400 Pound Guy in New Jersey?
Much of the feedback from my little tirades comes from a group I call the “Whatabouts.” You know the type. When they’re guilty, they deflect from their crimes with, “What about what (fill in the blank) did?” For Trumpsters, the response to any of a thousand facts marking him as a liar and a traitor...

No Libel Law in the World Can Stop Me From Calling Donald J. Trump a Liar

No Libel Law in the World Can Stop Me From Calling Donald J. Trump a Liar
The original title of this piece was “No Libel Law in the World Can Stop Me From Calling Donald J. Trump a Liar.  Only the FSB Can Do That” It was a few words too long, but it is certainly apropos. The FSB is Vladimir Putin’s gang of leg breakers.  Like the SS was for... Read more »

Mike Huckabee is a greater danger to America than ISIS
Mike Huckabee kicked off his presidential campaign with a fiery speech filled with biblical references, including, “We will deal with jihadis just as we would deal with deadly snakes.” The snake thing is an interesting metaphor, but the real snake in the grass might be  Mike Huckabee.  At least with jihadis, know what you get. ...

Seth Rogan's "The Interview" is an unpardonable mockery to the dignity of North Korea's supreme leader

On New Year”s Day I watched The Interview, one of Xfinity’s two featured offerings. The other one was The Equalizer, with Denzel Washington, which was my choice, but I was out-voted.
