Trump and BLM have a few things in common, not that they would ever admit it. Or care.

Trump and BLM have a few things in common, not that they would ever admit it.  Or care.
I was in the middle of a Chicago hot zone surrounded by blocks of National Guard troops forming a half-wheel around my neighborhood last month. While the Guard was ensconced at Sox Park (their epicenter) I was ensconced at home, apprehensive, tired, aghast, sad, confused and unable to deep sleep.  My neighborhood was suddenly nothing...

On dishwashing, ATMs, walking the neighborhood and shopping for food during the time of "we're all in this together...."
I haven’t eaten anything that hasn’t come out of a grocery store in the neighborhood since March 13.  Late that day, I stopped at Whole Foods on my way home, and bought the only two things left in the produce department:  a big container of cut up assorted fresh fruit,  And a bag of small...

Me Too or no Me Too, it's time to replace the presumptive nominee, Creepy Joe

Me Too or no Me Too, it's time to replace the presumptive nominee, Creepy Joe
Oh, boy, has the Me Too movement ever bitten Biden’s butt! When we Americans embraced Me Too, we were expected to believe the story of every single woman who said she was harassed, assaulted or affronted in some way–no matter how lacking in detail–or credibility.  No matter how nuts she was, no matter if she had...

The Biggest Biden Bernie Betrayal of all may be on its way: Kamala Harris for VP

The Biggest Biden Bernie Betrayal of all may be on its way:  Kamala Harris for VP
The only time Senator Kamala Harris made any headway as a presidential candidate was back in June.  In a debate.  When she told Vice President Joe Biden that even though she really didn’t believe he was a racist, he was a racist.  Because he worked with racists in Congress in the past and that he’d been...

We're in dystopia and it's back to the basics with food

We're in dystopia and it's back to the basics with food
Now that we’re in dystopia, my diet is like a menu from a women’s magazine from the old days–for young  women who wanted to lose five pounds.  They seemed like a good idea–but the food was so skimpy.  And no one could stay on diets like that for more than a meal.  Or two. But... Read more »

How I really feel about Bernie Sanders as the leader of a progressive revolution

How I really feel about Bernie Sanders as the leader of a progressive revolution
The progressives, led by Bernie Sanders are on their way to changing the Democrat party, the same way the Dixiecrats changed the Republican party. Only in a good way. Historic.  Evolutionary.  Political Change. Watching the corporate media freaking out about the prospect of a democratic socialist interested in taking us out of Third World economic... Read more »

"Recreational" marijuana? What? Do you get a bowling ball and a tennis racket with your purchase?

"Recreational" marijuana?  What? Do you get a bowling ball and a tennis racket with your purchase?
Now that it’s perfectly legal to buy pot, I’d like to know why it’s called “recreational?”  What other drug goes from prescription drug to recreational drug via government sanction?  Do you get a box of ping pong balls and a boxing glove to go along with your purchase?  Why “recreational?” How marijuana smoking (and eating)...

Impeachment Day: bring out the fainting couches, the hankies and the smelling salts for the oh, soooo sanctimonious

Impeachment Day:  bring out the fainting couches, the hankies and the smelling salts for the oh, soooo sanctimonious
Bring out the fainting couches, the hankies for the brow and the smelling salts, dear Cha-lotte.  Oh, those sensitive little House Democrat flowers with their fluttering eyelashes, their mouths agog (especially Nancy’s). Their sensibilities so disturbed by Trump asking Ukraine to see if the Bidens, father and son, were corrupt. Someone said on one of... Read more »

The media finally woke up and noticed that Kamala Harris was tanking, but they don't get why

The media finally woke up and noticed that Kamala Harris was tanking, but they don't get why
The mainstream media suddenly gets it.  They realize their much beloved Indian/Jamaican/Canadian resident (during junior high/high school) candidate with the sharp tongue and the icky giggle is in deep political trouble. (The descriptive terms above are there merely to prove that her ancestors never suffered any systemic abuse toward African Americans in the United States,... Read more »

Here comes Kamala Harris' Hail Mary pass over Iowa, and it's not full of grace
Presidential candidate and California Senator Kamala Harris has thrown a Hail Mary pass over the State of Iowa. God forbid she scores…. Hail Mary, full of grace, don’t let her. Harris is putting all her resources into Iowa.  For real this time.  She’s been saying she’s been doing that for months, banking on a high... Read more »
