You have forced me to burn my flag

You have forced me to burn my flag
This is a long one, so I made a 6-minute video to save you from having to read it.  To watch, click HERE.  In the video, my motorcycle is behind me and it’s got a 3′ X 5′ American flag on the back.  I point over my shoulder and say: I rode that motorcycle down... Read more »

I liked Brett Kavanaugh better when he was just a beer-guzzling rapist

I liked Brett Kavanaugh better when he was just a beer-guzzling rapist
Brett Kavanaugh was the second Supreme Court justice that Donald Trump was able to appoint, thanks to the treachery, deception, hypocrisy and outright lawlessness of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. My takeaways from Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings include: 1. He likes beer 2. He attempted to rape Christine Blasey Ford 3. He is a cry baby... Read more »

Sorry, we're not going to be friends again, no matter who wins this election

Sorry, we're not going to be friends again, no matter who wins this election
I don’t hate you, but how can I like you?  It’s not because we disagree on issues or come down on opposite sides of the political aisle. It’s because you’ve published your thoughts and they are anathema to me. The election of 2016 offered a binary choice, but that sharp distinction is one hundred times... Read more »

Trump's three worst town hall lies

Trump's three worst town hall lies
As it was in 2016, Trump’s campaign has been one of lies, exaggerations and gross distortions.  Last night’s town hall in Miami, Florida was no exception. Some lies though, are worse than others. COVID-19 Trump says that we’re rounding the turn.  Unfortunately, what we found around that turn is the next wave of COVID-19. Without... Read more »

Columbus didn't discover America, he invaded it

Columbus didn't discover America, he invaded it
Good morning, America.  Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Normally on this day I would repost Christopher Columbus was just another wise guy with a boat, but I’m done with that guy.  This is 2020 and it’s time to stop glorifying assholes. We wouldn’t have a special day for an astronaut who blasted off for the moon but... Read more »

Did a car dealer deliberately drill holes in my car and then lie about it?

Did a car dealer deliberately drill holes in my car and then lie about it?
It seems cliché when people ask, Would you buy a used car from that guy?  Used car salesmen have a bad rep, but do they deserve it?  Are they any worse than new car salesmen? I recently traded my twelve-year old car with 160,000 miles for a two-year old car with 15,000 miles.  It was... Read more »

Sean Conley managed to kill THREE birds with one stone

Sean Conley managed to kill THREE birds with one stone
Killing two birds with one stone is a common expression, but you rarely – if ever – hear about the kind of masterful stroke that can kill THREE birds with just one stone. Killing two birds with one stone is the result of an action that accomplishes two different things at the same time or... Read more »

"Don't be afraid of Covid" may be the stupidest thing Trump ever tweeted...and his tweets tend to be pretty stupid

"Don't be afraid of Covid" may be the stupidest thing Trump ever tweeted...and his tweets tend to be pretty stupid
Note to readers:  Sorry.  I’ve never sent you a second blog in the same day, but things have gone from the ridiculous to the terrifying.  Besides, I didn’t really write this, it just…wrote itself. There’s no reason to fear COVID-19, especially if you can be helicoptered over to Walter Reed Hospital to receive the very... Read more »

Is it fair for Joe Biden to campaign while Donald Trump recovers from a self-inflicted disease?

Is it fair for Joe Biden to campaign while Donald Trump recovers from a self-inflicted disease?
Republicans are whining (again) that Joe Biden should refrain from campaigning until Little Donnie recovers. Irony doesn’t quite cover it and even the word hypocrisy is too kind by an order of magnitude.  Pure evil is the only term that comes to mind. Fairness is not a Republican virtue.  You would have to jump out a... Read more »

Sorry Don, I just don't have any Sympathy for the Devil

Sorry Don, I just don't have any Sympathy for the Devil
I rotate about 350 titles on my playlist, which generally includes about a dozen Rolling Stones songs. While refreshing that list the day after Trump’s inauguration, I reflexively deleted the Stones’ 1975 release, Sympathy for the Devil. It was odd, because I usually have trouble deleting anything from the Stones.  Last month I deleted nothing... Read more »
