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 »

My life as a cotton-growing, slave-owning Southern white gentleman

My life as a cotton-growing, slave-owning Southern white gentleman
The title of this piece may leave a lot to unpack, but let’s put a pin in all that for now. I grew up on the North Side of Chicago and didn’t get further south than Terre Haute, Indiana until I landed at Fort Polk, LA, just a month short of my nineteenth birthday. So,... Read more »

Would it have been better if Derek Chauvin had shot George Floyd in the back?

Would it have been better if Derek Chauvin had shot George Floyd in the back?
Request to readers: PLEASE do not take this as any kind of endorsement of shooting people in the back.  Don’t be a Trumpster, read past the headlines. Like many other people around the world, the video of Derek Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck is burned into my brain.  Like many other horrors I’ve witnessed... Read more »

Is an annual 80 rounds of golf par for the course or is Trump headed for the rough?

Is an annual 80 rounds of golf par for the course or is Trump headed for the rough?
A perpetual theme in Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was President Barack Obama’s time on the links. According to Trump, President Obama played too much golf, something he (Trump) would never do because he would be working too hard. President Obama played 306 rounds of golf during his eight year presidency. That’s 38 rounds a... Read more »

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear

Guns, Violence and Advertising in the Age of Trumpism, Hate and Fear
The above advertisement caught my eye as I thumbed through a magazine while cooling my heels at the Denver airport. It’s a lot to take in. There’s a casual, but urgent proffer of weapons of annihilation.  I’m not anti-gun but let’s face it, the AR-15 is exquisitely designed to inflict catastrophic damage to flesh and... Read more »

There are Ways to Engage Trumpsters Without Coming to Blows

There are Ways to Engage Trumpsters Without Coming to Blows
Before we try to mend fences with those friends and relatives from whom we’ve been estranged these many months, some rules need to be established. These rules are hard, fast and non-negotiable.  Without them, we risk returning to chaos. First and most obvious of all, politics will not be discussed in any way, shape or... Read more »

The Case for Executing Donald J. Trump

The Case for Executing Donald J. Trump
Plenty of people out there think Donald Trump needs to Go (that’s “go” with a capital “G”). They’re offended by his very existence. These folks are angry and some have very unpleasant ideas about the way they’d like to see The Donald done in. “John” described a particularly nasty practice of the the Taliban. As... Read more »

Embracing Nazism May be Trump's Best Shot at Re-election

Embracing Nazism May be Trump's Best Shot at Re-election
If this was AOL, I might use words like “shocking” and “jaw dropping,” but “nauseating” is the word that comes to mind as I report the following: Donald J. Trump’s support among Republicans JUMPED after he defended the “fine people” marching with Nazis, Klansmen and other assorted racist assholes.  Not surprisingly, more than 60% of... Read more »

Terrorism Is Like Pornography, You Know It When You See It

Terrorism Is Like Pornography,  You Know It When You See It
Two cities in Spain saw the kind of vehicular terror attacks this week such as we have previously seen in Nice, Berlin and London. As of this writing, 14 people are dead in Barcelona and 100 are injured, some critically.  In Cambrils, one person died and six others were injured.  One police officer killed four... Read more »

What If Nazi James Alex Fields Had Rammed His Car Into Zoe Instead of Heather?

What If Nazi James Alex Fields Had Rammed His Car Into Zoe Instead of Heather?
You don’t know Zoe, but I can assure you that she is one of the sweetest, most delightful young women you will ever meet. The thought of a delusional maniac like James Alex Fields causing her harm causes me physical pain. But it could happen. After many events, both large and small I tend to... Read more »
