The current occupier of the White House, (not myPresident), is, at the very least, an enabler of Vladimir Putin’s blatant, obvious and unapologetic attack on western democracy and, most likely, a manipulated participant of treasonous activity against the United States of America.  This week, in direct conflict with the security,…

AWOL

What do unaccounted for soldiers, concrete, steel or papier-mâché barriers, Markie Mark, or Walla Walla, Washington have in common with border security?  They all contain a homophonic of ‘wall’, which, in and of itself, is as relevant, helpful or effective as the idea that a nineteen hundred or twenty-two hundred…

Pleasure

A candid interchange between the President and an aide while visiting the site of the devastating Camp Fire in Northern California: POTUS:  “Wow…the whole town of Pleasure, burned to shit.” Aide:  “It’s Paradise, Mr. President.” POTUS:  “Are you blind?  It’s Hell! Coulda all been avoided if they’d only raked the forest,…
