A self diagnostic: Are you one of the Stupid People?

A self diagnostic:  Are you one of the Stupid People?
There’s a much maligned segment of our society that may or may not deserve our disapprobation. It’s odd that we define good and evil along party lines, but that is where we are. The MAGA nation suffers the slings and arrows of such epithets as trumpsters, dumpsters, trumpanzees, trumpkins, deplorables, traitors, insurrectionists and, as Donnie... Read more »

Jason Chaffetz is wrong, wrong, wrong, partly correct & wrong

Jason Chaffetz is wrong, wrong, wrong, partly correct & wrong
In a July 4th editorial, former Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) opined that America has much for which to be thankful. While no one wants to argue with that, Chaffetz’s reasoning is as corrupt as the man’s soul. That editorial which, not surprisingly, appeared on Fox News Live is entitled July 4, 2021: 5 reasons to... Read more »

What's this I hear about July 4th?

What's this I hear about July 4th?
Everywhere I looked I saw ads for July 4th savings on this and July 4th savings on that, so I googled it to see what was happening on July 4th. Turns out that today is a celebration of a holiday called Independence Day and this is the 245th anniversary of that day. King George III,... Read more »

Brian Sicknick fell victim to a mob of misguided miscreants sent by Donald John Trump

Brian Sicknick fell victim to a mob of misguided miscreants sent by Donald John Trump
The remains of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick were delivered to the Capitol rotunda Tuesday night and memorial services were held there on Wednesday preceding burial at Arlington National Cemetery. As I watched the proceedings, my sadness deepened, as did my anger. Lying liar Kevin McCarthy, a knowing conspirator in the lies that led to the... Read more »

Eleven presidential campaigns with no one crying about rigged elections. Then came Trump

Eleven presidential campaigns with no one crying about rigged elections.  Then came Trump
I cast my first presidential ballot for George McGovern in 1972.  Not an actual McGovern fan, it was more of an anti-war, anti-Nixon vote. The war in Vietnam needed to end, as did the presidency of Richard Nixon. I’ve voted for winners and I’ve voted for losers.  Never did I think that the only fair outcome... Read more »

Count or stop counting? Is this as good as it gets?

Count or stop counting?  Is this as good as it gets?
This was an election like no other.  Not only did more people vote than at any time in our history, but one side doesn’t seem to understand that the results of the election determine who gets to live in the White House. This is a confused and poorly informed group of malcontents.  The split screen... Read more »

Are you sick of what passes for patriotism these days?

Are you sick of what passes for patriotism these days?
“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.” – President Emmanuel Macron Originally published on November 11, 2017: There’s about 4,800 homeless veterans in Los Angeles.  Luckily, they’re in L.A. and not here in Chicago, where it was 20 degrees last night. Happy f**king Veterans Day. Do you think any of... Read more »

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 »

If Trump is right, we might as well burn our flags

If Trump is right, we might as well burn our flags
Maybe Trump is right, maybe the people who fought and died for this country are suckers and losers. After all, they apparently fought and died so that a bunch of criminals and traitors could run this country into the ground. Hardly the America represented by the Stars & Stripes.  Hardly the America for which so much... Read more »
