November is coming

November is coming
It was January 20. 2017. Donald John Trump is inaugurated as President of the United States. The crowd watching the event is one of the smallest in recent inaugurations. It was January 21, 2017. Millions of citizens gathered in Washington D.C., New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Denver and many other cities for the first Women’s... Read more »

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 »

If you were a Stanley Cup Champion, would you go to the White House?

If you were a Stanley Cup Champion, would you go to the White House?
The Washington Capitals are your 2018 Stanley Cup Champions. They’re the kings of the hockey world. It happened just a week ago when they defeated the Vegas Golden Knights to win the final series four games to one. It was party time and man, did they party. It’s still going on. The celebration has been... Read more »

What do you call someone who leaves nasty comments on your blog?

What do you call someone who leaves nasty comments on your blog?
Did you know that I’m a Communist? I didn’t either….until one of the people who reads my blog let me know. You can’t have thin skin if you’re a writer. Not everyone is going to like everything you write. Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions. You have to be able to handle... Read more »

The week in review: The midweek edition

 Another day, another school shooting. This time at Santa Fe High School in Texas. This time ten are dead. It's the twenty second school shooting in 2018.

Who has been watching Barron Trump this week?

Who has been watching Barron Trump this week?
On Monday, our current FLOTUS, Melania Trump was hospitalized. She had a procedure to deal with a benign kidney condition. We’re told everything went well and that’s a good thing. Hey, just because she has bad taste in men is no reason to wish her harm. Supposedly, she’ll be home, and sadly by home, I... Read more »

The week in review: People you should know

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/IxgfXKwhRwM" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Let's start with Republican strategist Steve Schmidt. Nicolle Wallace asked him a simple question about Mike Pence. The VP now has a new orifice. I need a dictionary every time I see Schmidt speak but it's so worth it.
Another week comes to an end. More nonsense with a couple sweet moments at the end to balance it out. Here’s some people that you should know about: 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....

I stalked Kellyanne Conway on Twiter

I stalked Kellyanne Conway on Twiter
Tuesday seemed like it was going to be a good day. Keyword: seemed. I went to bed on Monday night at 11pm, which is two hours early for me. I slept straight through to 7:30am. Eight and one half hours of sleep!! Can’t remember when that last happened. A good start to Tuesday…a very good... Read more »

The week in review: The old privileged white guy in Portland edition

Let us start at Starbucks. We all know the story of the two black men being arrested in Philadelphia.  I can't count the times I've been to Starbucks to do things like using the wi-fi to write this blog, read or use the bathroom...without buying anything..and never being asked a single question. Is it because I'm a 60ish year old white man? Pffft...what do you think?! Starbucks will be closing all their stores for an afternoon to conduct a diversity training class. Good start! Maybe they should do it monthly until they get it right? Maybe! Maybe they should just treat everyone equally with respect. DUH!!
It’s time to look at the events of this past week. Highlights include racism, privilege, our President and his lackey plus a trip to Portland, Oregon. Let’s have a look, shall we?

    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.
