Memorial Day 2021: What does it mean to Honor and Remember?

Memorial Day 2021:  What does it mean to Honor and Remember?
Updated and reposted from a previous Memorial Day This Memorial Day I find my optimism for America lower than I thought possible. Incomprehensibly, Republicans voted to block a commission to investigate the worst attack on our Capitol since the Civil War. The repressive voting law (Senate Bill 7) that Texas Governor Abbott wants to sign... Read more »

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not
If you find the message in the above featured image offensive, you are not alone. Incredibly, it’s a very commonly repeated fabrication. The logic of the whole reverse racism thing is enough to make you want to delete country music from your playlist. Ours is a culture of incomprehensible equivalencies; bizarre comparisons between two things that... Read more »

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise
Like most Chicagoans (I hope), I was appalled to hear of the heinous crime perpetrated in my city as recounted by the victim, Jussie Smollet. My initial reaction was one of anger and disgust with no thought to the possibility that it was also fiction. Who would make up such a thing and for what... Read more »

A caravan of Middle Eastern gangsters, funded by George Soros, Christine Blasey Ford, Hllary Clinton & Nancy Pelosi is coming to vote, take your job and do terrorism

A caravan of Middle Eastern gangsters, funded by George Soros, Christine Blasey Ford, Hllary Clinton & Nancy Pelosi is coming to vote, take your job and do terrorism
If you don’t do critical thought and are easily provoked, you may find the above headline heart stopping.  It checks off just about all the boxes of fear and loathing in America. The only thing missing is big black guys kneeling and the mayor of San Juan throwing paper towels back at Donald Trump. If... Read more »

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?

Did Susan Collins have a consciencectomy or did she overdose on the Kool-Aid?
Consciencectomy – the complete removal of one’s conscience Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) has often been a reasonable voice in the maelstrom of hyperpartisan constipation. I liked Senator Collins. Now I question her choice of speech writers as well as her choice of Supreme Court justices. Collins said something on Sunday that sounded like she didn’t... Read more »

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?

OK, dickhead, what ABOUT Benghazi?
America is in the throes of a virulent disease eating away at the fabric of democracy. It is deadlier than flesh eating bacteria and consumes from within. Whataboutism is not new, but the pandemic spreading across our nation is destroying the concept of objective reality.  Donald Trump knows nothing about anything and he doesn’t want... Read more »

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?

Can we decriminalize rape by simply saying, "Rape is not a crime" ?
(For Bleichy, a really cool chick and my brother-in-law, Bob.  Thanks for the encouragement) Before you go out and issue a fatwa on me, please be assured that I don’t think that rape should be decriminalized. Quite the opposite. I think rape laws should be stiffer, punishments more severe (penectomy?) and defense attorneys should not... Read more »

How can we have a meeting without Russia?

How can we have a meeting without Russia?
When Donnie Trump asked a gaggle of reporters last week, “Why are we having a meeting without Russia being in the meeting?” no one answered. It seemed like a whimsical query, akin to Pink Floyd asking, “How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat?” Mr. Trump’s advocacy for Russia seems a... Read more »

There is no collusion, there is no collusion, there is no collusion. Maybe not, but there's plenty of conspiracy

There is no collusion, there is no collusion, there is no collusion.  Maybe not, but there's plenty of conspiracy
The following was previously published.  It’s a little cheesy re-posting it, but not nearly as cheesy as Donald Trump’s constant refrain of, “No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.”  For every ten times Dishonest Don says, “No collusion,” someone needs to stand up and say, “But your son says you get all your money from Russia...

Would America be surprised to find out that Sean Hannity is just another lying scumbag in the Trump Mafia?

Would America be surprised to find out that Sean Hannity is just another lying scumbag in the Trump Mafia?
Sean Hannity wants attorney client privilege with a man who he had claimed had never acted as his attorney.  Fake newscaster or soon-to-be singing canary? That’s all I’ve I got for now.  Have a good weekend. On another note, here’s a couple of book reccos for your springtime reading: For anyone who remembers Dwight Eisenhower... Read more »
