Is being a racist an impeachable offense?

Is being a racist an impeachable offense?
 “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” We’re all immigrants. If it isn’t you, it’s your parents or grandparents or great-grandparents. America has always been known for it’s open arms and welcoming spirit. It’s a country of... 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.

It's been obvious for decades that Donald Trump is the "American Idiot" (Green Day)
Happy Independence Day eve. Tomorrow, Donald Trump is throwing himself and his followers a little party. He’s going to have a parade, military-dictatorship style. Trump is enamored of those parades his heroes throw. Tanks rolling down the street. Soldiers marching and paying honor to their leader. He’s always wanted one of those to honor him.... Read more »

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 »

Mick Jagger gives a shout out to Lori Lightfoot, Trump, Pence and Kellyanne tell more lies: The week in review

The Rolling Stones opened their tour on Friday, in Chicago. Mick Jagger gave a shout out to our new mayor, Lori Lightfoot. The only problem, Lori wasn't at the concert. She said she appreciated the pub and is hoping to be at the second show tonight. Can someone hook up Lori with some tickets and maybe some Stones swag?
The world of strange continues. It never ends, does it. From music to politics to sports, there’s always something. It’s time for another week in review. Let’s have a peek: That’s all folks…see ya next time…and there will be a next time. Related Post: Are George and Kellyanne Conway screwing with all of us? Type... 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 »

Are you disappointed in the Mueller Report?

Are you disappointed in the Mueller Report?
Collusion Obstruction? After two years, the short version of Robert Mueller’s report came in on Sunday….or at least what the Attorney General wanted you to see. Is anyone really surprised by what we’ve heard? For those of you who thought this was going to be the end of Donald Trump’s presidency, what did you think... Read more »

The lies of Donald Trump-The week in review: The liar, liar, pants on fire edition

This is Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Last week she sentenced former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. During the sentencing, she made clear that this case had nothing to do with the Russian collusion investigation. It took Trump about thirty seconds to say he was vindicated and this showed that there was no collusion. LIAR!
Our current president lying to the public and himself is nothing new. It’s been said that Donald Trump has told more than 8,000 lies in his two years in office. There’s no reason to be surprised when he does this, but some weeks are worse than others. This seems to be one of those. Let’s... Read more »

Are George and Kellyanne Conway screwing with all of us?

Are George and Kellyanne Conway screwing with all of us?
(sing to the theme of The Jetson’s) Meet George Conway. His wife Kellyanne. It’s Washington’s most bizarre power couple. They’ve been married for eighteen years. They have four young children. Nothing abnormal about this. She helped Donald Trump get elected POTUS and now works for him. He hates her boss and lets everyone know it... 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.
