Take note - #allLIESmatter

Full disclosure, I took #allLIESmatter from the View’s Joy Behar this morning.  It resonated with me immediately.  Especially in light of the fact that my kids seem to be quickly learning the art of “alternative facts.”  I mean, how do I tell them not to lie when our fucking President does. And, not occasionally lie either.... Read more »

The Reed's go to Washington (Part 3)

The Reed's go to Washington (Part 3)
We join our story already in progress… The Reed family (that’s us) has been in line for about 45 minutes waiting for a food truck hot dog, pretzel, and apparently Ice Cream despite the chilly day.  However, the wait has gone by quickly because we’ve made a friend. A teacher from Arizona, who was in... Read more »

The Reed's go to Washington (Part 2)
A quick recap for those just joining us: My family and I have driven more than 700 miles to our nation’s capitol from Chicago. We have waited more than an hour just to board a Metro train to DC. We have ridden the train with a rowdy bunch of pussy hat wearing folks to downtown... Read more »

The Reed's go to Washington (Part 1)

The Reed's go to Washington (Part 1)
When my wife, and all her passion, reacted to Trump’s victory in November by immediately booking a hotel room near D.C. with a friend so we could fight back.  This didn’t settle for me until we were about two weeks out from the dark day Trump would be sworn in.  It was real.  It was... Read more »

My anxiety has anxiety

My anxiety has anxiety
Among a seemingly endless wave of soul-shaking news, I experienced a major blow on a personal level. A very good friend, no, my best friend on this planet passed away. But not only passed away, he took his own life. A bit of news that will haunt me for the foreseeable future. Mostly because we... Read more »

Hacking, shmacking it's the computer's fault

Hacking, shmacking it's the computer's fault
Can we all just admit that the Trump presidency is going to be as much fun as a clown car smashing into a dumpster on fire? Our orange nightmare doesn’t have time (or the balls) to meet with actual reporters to discuss his less than stellar choices since becoming President Elect. He does, however, have... Read more »

In other news - Trump drops bombs

In other news - Trump drops bombs
Why do news outlets, in their many forms seem to be 100% consistent in covering the WRONG story these days? Today, Ivanka Trump got all the clicks and eyeballs while her pop talked about playing the very retro game of THERMAL NUCLEAR WAR! One story is about someone getting pissed and acting like an ass...

You Better Watch Out...

You Better Watch Out...
I’m confident our near future is going to be a complete roller coaster ride. I mean since Trump won, people are more than happy to show off their true ugly colors. Whether it be a racist grandma yelling at Latinos in a JC Penny or Jackass airline passengers having Arab men tossed off a plane... Read more »

Calling all ghosts from Christmas past, present and future!

Calling all ghosts from Christmas past, present and future!
I think it’s finally time for the ghosts from past, present and future to visit our President Elect. He needs to see that when he dies, we’ll all know his gold plated gravestone will be covered with snow and boast a hole that leads straight to hell. Hell seems harsh, but come on. We know...

Is unsafe the new normal?

Is unsafe the new normal?
As a large white guy, I’m normally pretty free of fear within my surroundings.  That’s not meant to be braggadocios but merely stating a fact.  I’ll never forget when my wife, sitting in our weekly life coaching session (fancy way to say therapist), shared with me the fear that most women carry.  That no matter...
