Happy Anniversary, 'Merica

Happy Anniversary, 'Merica
One year ago today. November 8, 2016. It was a day that began with hope. It was a day that ended in shock. When the day started, most of us expected to be celebrating at the end of the night. It was going to be a historic night. America was going to elect their first... Read more »

I'm using my superpowers to impeach Donald Trump

I'm using my superpowers to impeach Donald Trump
Look up into the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…. My people seem to think I have a special superhuman power. Whenever I do something, even a small something, there’s seems to be a Donald Trump event. I admit it’s eerie. I take a shower and when I get out, there’s BREAKING NEWS.... Read more »

Donald Trump vs the NFL owners and players: Don't be fooled by the unity

Donald Trump vs the NFL owners and players: Don't be fooled by the unity
They say politics makes strange bedfellows. It’s a cliche, yes, but it certainly was true this past weekend. There’s so many things going on that it’s hard to tell who was in bed with who. You’d think some of this stuff would only be found in a novel but in this case, truth is definitely... Read more »

It was a bad week in the world of Donald Trump

It was a bad week in the world of Donald Trump
It was a supposed to a be a vacation for our current POTUS. Not just a weekend of Golf at one of his courses that puts our money in his family’s pocket. This should have been a real time for Donnie to chill. Renovations are being done to the White House, so they told him... Read more »

The week in review: August 13-18

Let's start with some entertainment news. David Letterman is back! He'll be doing a series of six interview/comedy shows this coming season. Dave said when you retire to spend more time with the family, maybe ask the family first. Hmmm....maybe I should do that with my readers before doing this every week. :-)
We really could title this the week in Nazis but there’s more to life than trashing white supremacy groups. Although they do play a big part in this weeks news, there are items in entertainment, food and sports, too. So let’s take a peek at one of the craziest weeks ever…EVER!!!   Previous Post: Stop...

Why can't Republican politicians say the name Donald Trump

Why can't Republican politicians say the name Donald Trump
Tuesday was quite a day in Donald Trump’s America. In an event that was supposed to talk about infrastructure, Donald went off topic and decided to answer questions from the press. It went bad…very bad. According to a White House source, “He went rogue.” “I think there’s blame on both sides.” “Not all those people were Neo-Nazis.”... Read more »

If they aren't calling you Kike to your face, you know they're thinking it

If they aren't calling you Kike to your face, you know they're thinking it
The year is 1965. I’m a child of twelve and living in Skokie, Illinois. At that time, it’s hard to find a more Jewish community in the United States. On my block, there were two families that weren’t Jewish. One was a friend of mine who lived across the street. The other included a adult... Read more »

How do you explain Donald Trump to your four year old child?

How do you explain Donald Trump to your four year old child?
It was November 8, 1960. Election night in the United States. John F. Kennedy vs Richard Nixon for the Presidency. I was eight years old and all in for JFK. I remember my parents letting me stay up late to watch the election results with them. When Nixon won a state, I dropped an F-bomb... Read more »

The Week in Review: July 24-31

Let's start with a state. Texas has decided they want their own transgender bathroom law. Apparently it worked out so well for North Carolina, that Texas has decided they need one, too. Apparently they didn't believe the billions in lost revenue from the boycott of NC over their bill. Dudes in Texas, your state has more places to lose these events and you're going to lose maybe five times what North Carolina did. Here's some financial advice, don't do this. Here's some human decency advice, don't do this.
I got a little behind so this is more like the week and a half in review. That’s cool because it gives more time for the nuttiness to show up. This week, politicians, commentators and even states got, to paraphrase Mooch, fucking crazy. Here’s a look at that craziness. That’s all for this week. 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.
