Let Sarah Sanders eat in your restaurant

Let Sarah Sanders eat in your restaurant
It was a bad week for Trumpsters to go to restaurants. It started with the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kjersten Nielson, being heckled while dining at a Mexican restaurant. It was bad enough that she had to leave. The next night, the same thing happened to White House senior adviser, Stephen Miller. The finale of... Read more »

We are all refugees

We are all refugees
The images coming from Texas are horrific. Children are being held in an internment camp with walls made of metal as if they were in a WWE steel cage match. They’re sleeping on the floor on a thin mattress. The sounds were even more horrible, if that’s possible. “Papi, Papi.” “Where’s my mama?” “Don’t send... Read more »

The Trump administration finally gives bloggers respect...sorta

The Trump administration finally gives bloggers respect...sorta
In this strange era of Donald Trump, you have to move quick if you want to keep up. Things happen fast and end just as fast. The shelf life of a particular event is about one day. Okay…maybe a bit longer…but two or three at the most. You don’t believe me? The Stormy interview on 60... Read more »

The week in review: March 12-17

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired this week. He found out in a tweet. 
Here's a pro tip for all of you, no matter what your profession is: Don't call your boss a "fucking moron" and expect to survive in your gig...even if he is....especially if he is.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day It’s been another strange, bizarre week……but it always is in Trumpville. But it’s not just Donnie. We have a few other interesting events. Instead of rambling (and how about those Loyola Ramblers) for a 1000 words on each one, let’s put them all in a single gallery. Here we go….oy!!!  ... Read more »

It's past time to get the guns

It's past time to get the guns
 “The other piece of legislation is the crime bill. As of today, it no longer exists. I’m throwing it out. I’m throwing it out and writing a law that makes sense. You cannot address crime prevention without getting rid of assault weapons and hand guns. I consider them a threat to national security, and I... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
