Over the last four years, Donald Trump takes you to places where you think what could possibly be next? How could it get any more bizarre? Then came this last ten days!! It was nothing like we’ve ever seen before. Fiction writers could never come up with this! But, again we’re left wondering, what the... Read more »

Don and Melania attended the Alabama-LSU football game. He's been booed at recent appearances, so students were threatened with the loss of their tickets if that happened there. Because of that, plus being that it's Alabama, Trump received massive cheers. I'm not saying that's why Alabama lost the football game, but.....Karma?
It’s been some time since we’ve published a weekly look at the news, but there’s been enough weird stuff this week to make some snarky comments. Let’s take a peek at what our so-called leaders are up to: That’s it for another “Week in Review.” See ya next time. Alex, we love you, too! Type... Read more »

Nipples, airports, and earthquakes: The week in review- A week of independence

The Supreme Court ruled on adding the "are you a citizen?" question to the census. NO...sorta. The swing vote was Chief Justice John Roberts. Whenever he rules against the Republican side of a case, he takes a lot of abuse from the right. It becomes a 'he's not one of us, we made a mistake in nominating him, can we impeach him?' thing. The dude rules with the Republicans 98% of the time, but that's not good enough.
This has been quite an eclectic week. From Fourth of July celebrations to sports to the ground moving; it’s more of the weird and wacky.

Donald Trump embarrasses himself and us again in Japan: The week in review

We start with the feud between Don and soccer star Megan Rapinoe. Megan says "I'm not going to the fucking White House." Trump responded by questioning her patriotism, “Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear." Megan doubled down with, “I stand by the comments that I made about not wanting to go to the White House with the exception of the expletive. My mom will be really upset about that.” She piled on by accepting an invite from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to tour Capital Hill. Oh man, this is getting good. Btw, Megan....I wouldn't visit the fucking White House either.
Another week with more embarrassment in the world of Trump. I know, what else is new. Don took his act to the G20 Summit, in Japan, and it didn’t go well…again. I know, what else is new. Let’s take a look at the shame we all have over Trump and his people in another Week... Read more »

Are Donald Trump Jr., Robert Kraft, Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and the Alabama State Senate privileged? The week in review in the world of privilege

Are Donald Trump Jr., Robert Kraft, Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and the Alabama State Senate privileged? The week in review in the world of privilege
If you live in America and are white, you are privileged. If you live in America and have money, you are privileged. That’s not anything that 95% of you don’t already know. For the other 5% that deny this or aren’t totally sure, ask yourself this; if it isn’t true, how did Donald Trump ever... Read more »

The week in review: shooting, lies, chicken and overtime

We start with the shooting at  the Chabad of Poway synagogue. One died with three others injured. The first reaction, which included one from our President, is "it looks like it may be a hate crime." Umm...let's see...Jews shot, in a house of worship, on the final day of Passover...thinking my first reaction would be more than "may be." Idiot! I'm surprised he didn't break out the "good people on both sides" line. Idiot!
It was a very eclectic week in the news. Shootings, politics and sports took the lead. Let’s take a look: Type your email address in the box and click the “create subscription” button. My list is completely spam free, and you can opt out at any time.

The week in review: March Madness edition

The tournament committee pretends that they don't try to set up big stories or interesting match-ups. LIARS! Why else would they have Minnesota, coached by Richard Pitino, play Louisville, where his dad coached and was fired in disgrace, in the opening game. Yeah, no drama here!
The big news this week is the start of the NCAA Basketball tournament. For the next three weeks the sports world will focus on college basketball and the race to get to the Final Four, in Minneapolis. March Madness is here. Let’s take a peek at some of the teams and stories around the big... Read more »

The week in review: The Blue Wave

The Democrats took over the majority on the House of Representatives last Tuesday. They gained more than thirty seats. We'll see if they use this advantage to govern or push to their agenda...meaning impeachment. It could go either way.

They even took the strange to other parts of the country and overseas, Here’s a quick look at the cray cray: Type your email address in the box and click the “create subscription” button.

    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.
