If You Disagree With Me You Hate America

The following is an expanded version of a Facebook conversation I recently had with a true red, white, and blue Democrat who is convinced that we must elect whomever the DNC tells us to vote for in order to prevent America from falling into Fascism. This person also wagged a finger at me for failing…

Why I Don’t Think This Will Turn Out Very Well

I believe mine is a doomed species, but it’s not because I’m some sort of Bible-thumping doomsayer. I arrived at my dour perspective after watching events of the world unfold during the last half-century or so and reading as much as I could about what other people thought and did, paying special attention to those…

Stuff That Baffles Me

Teachers who treat kids like crap Why the term “military chaplain” isn’t considered an oxymoron   Low income Republicans who are in favor of tax breaks for the über wealthy   Wadda you fuckin’ nuts? Why we feel justified overthrowing legally-elected governments   People who honestly believe racism is no longer an issue in this…

What Did You Expect, Madonna?

You wealthy liberal actors and mainstream church officials are a hoot. You get all butt hurt and indignant when Herr Donald wins the Presidency, yet, for the past 35 freaking years, the vast majority of you have said little or nothing about the creeping, malevolent barnacle of Right Wing idiocy that has latched on to…

More Thoughts About Gun Ownership

Many people I know are gun owners, and many of those gun owners are sane, pleasant people who treat their weapons with the respect they deserve and are generally very responsible individuals. Many are also highly knowledgeable of the technical aspects of weaponry and are more than happy to share that knowledge, oftentimes whether I want to…

President Pantsuit

Let’s not kid ourselves. Hillary Clinton will be our next President, whether we like it or not. Despite the fact that she is not qualified for the job (she’s never held executive office) and is almost totally devoid of honesty and integrity (do some research), she will still be hailed as “THE ONLY RATIONAL CHOICE”…

Trillary or Hump?

I am one of Bernie supporters who knew way back when he first started his run that he was already finished. His candidacy was and is a true challenge to the political establishment, and the owners needed to snuff it out by any means convenient. So they did. The reptiles who really run this country…

Not As Good As A Sharp Stick In The Eye

Andrew O’Hehir, in yet another article which dismisses the possibility of a Bernie Presidency, wrote: “As Sanders’ most ‘roid-raged and testosterone-fueled supporters will ultimately admit, Hillary Clinton is vastly preferable as president to any possible Republican, semi-lovable Rust Belt New Ager John Kasich included.” O’Hehir Article I have never taken steroids. And, since I am…

Why I Will Never, Ever Vote for Hillary Clinton

I don’t like Hillary Clinton. Not even a little bit. I perceive her to be an arrogant, deceitful, opportunistic rich girl, a card-carrying representative of the wealthy vermin who have almost succeeded in their goal of turning America into one of the third world countries that make our overpriced sneakers and jeans that fall apart. Hillary Clinton…

“Humans”

Imagine you are a delicious, edible substance that is dying of malnutrition. Imagine you are walking down a dark corridor. People with tiny little flashlights will occasionally stop and ask you for directions, thank you, and then leave you in the dark. Imagine being on a sinking ship, helping all the passengers onto their respective…

The Dominator Culture is Killing Our Children

When I used to be a teacher, I was responsible for the inhabitants of classrooms filled with living, breathing, laughing children, and a large part of my job entailed getting to know these young creatures well enough to teach them effectively and kindly. To teach them, I had to learn them. Part of what the boss…
