Note to Republicans

You started it…and I mean that in an historically positive, way-to-go context.  You put down the Confederate uprising, led the fight against slavery and the move toward civil rights, Republican policies nudged the fall of the Soviet Union and time-after-time your forerunners drafted legislation and worked hand-in-hand with their Democratic…

I Read It

…and not to be overly snarky, but since the President can’t read and his devout followers either can’t or won’t, the damning revelations on every line of every page may, sadly, turn out to be the waste of time, money and human resources that Comrade Donnie has been claiming all…

Nationalism

America First! Deutschland Uber Allis! Equally racist, dehumanizing and existentially dangerous.  It’s time to stop pussy-footing around the stark and blatantly-obvious parallels between the Trump Regime and the Third Reich, before it’s too late to choose.

J’Accuse!

…every member of Congress who has abetted the wide-ranging Trump criminal enterprise.  Each of you, (no need for a show of your dirty, dirty hands), should be indicted as felonious conspirators and traitorous colluders in support of the wholesale overthrow of American Democracy by its chief executive. History, if indeed we…

This is Not a Drill!

I have only a few vivid memories of my Noble School Elementary years, (1951-57), in Detroit, Michigan.  Of the most clearly defined, in both purposeful recall and randomly recurring dreams, are the FIRE and AIR RAID drills that were supposed to keep us safe(r) should either of those events transpire. Neither ever…

Graham…Cracker

On Thursday, the US House of Representatives accomplished something that most political observers would have thought impossible…unanimous agreement.  The issue that brought the House together was the concern that the findings of the Special Prosecutor’s investigation are likely to be direct deposited into a deep dark hole by Trump’s hand-picked…

Omertà!

So, this possibly repentant scumbag, on his way to the slammer, after years as a made man, perpetrating the slimiest of criminal activity for the Don, (just can’t make some shit up), claims to have found the goodness that was always lurking inside, and publicly names names, spills the beans…

Shelter in Place

I’ve been hunkered down under my desk, fingers laced over my head, for about a week now.  I have no way of knowing what’s going on with the National Emergency, no radio, no phone.  I’m scratching this out on a scrap of paper using my fingernail and the accumulated schmutz…

Green New Deal

There they go again…those crazy, Earth-hugging Democrats proposing whack-a-doodle environmental legislation, forcing us into using only renewable energy, stopping the pollution of the water we drink and the air we breathe and embracing the scientific data on climate change by drastically reducing our contributions to it.  What are they thinking? …
