At this volatile moment for our nation, amidst all of the chaos, remember that the most important takeaway from this, the thing we can really learn, is that your cousin whatshisname, is a good cop.


Stephen Miller

At 3 years, 131 days, 4 hours and 43 minutes into his term, I just wanted to remind everyone that our President still employs a white nationalist as a senior advisor for policy.


Reciting The Hollow Men

A dear friend of mine and I were recently discussing some of the surprising educational blessings we received in high school in Hutchinson, Kansas. The music program was exceptional, with some truly dedicated teachers. (Thank you Jim Swiggart and Mike … the rest “Reciting The Hollow Men”


Plandoofus

Tin foil kills the COVID-19 virus.

Feeling oddly compelled to wade into the muck of the debate surrounding the “Plandemic” video that is currently circulating on social media. It’s complete bullshit and people are completely buying in.

Infuriating.

I sprinkled this around Facebook as … the rest “Plandoofus”


Doing Our Part

A reasonable amount of ready cash.

Dear Mr. Kushner (or whoever is currently being President),

Ordinarily, I am a wildly wealthy person. However, due to the recent plague, it seems my main income source, wage slaves (or as we like to say between us, the poors,)

Ruinous

Ruinous.

1969: “…One giant leap for mankind.”

Fifty years later: “We should build a giant fence.”

It’s 20 million dollars per mile, but how do you but a price on an idea this good?

If you support this, may the ghost … the rest “Ruinous”


Accolades

It occurs to me that if I were to take myself seriously as a writer, a poet, a purveyor of ideas, a mark of my success would be to present my writing to the world while escaping the indignity of … the rest “Accolades”

I take a solo excursion into the canyonlands with some water, some nuts, some berries.
The water runs out.
The nuts and berries run out.
My legs give out.
I sit down and lean against a rock.

Confront

I understand why some of my friends feel compelled to periodically post “why can’t we all just get along” messages on their social media feeds. Animosity and vitriol are not the mental space most of us want to inhabit. Posting … the rest “Confront”


Re-Branding

Well, there is this virus propagating worldwide and it’s been suggested that we stay indoors so it doesn’t keep spreading.

The problem is that we’re tired of doing that now, so we’re going to be re-branding this situation as government … the rest “Re-Branding”


Yesterday’s co-marshals of the never-ending Dipshits on TV Parade, Jeanine Pirro and Franklin Graham share the helpful information that the current pandemic is retribution by god on a fallen world.

Please, people. Look at the timing. This is clearly the work of The Great Pumpkin. Ignored once again at the end of October, by December he has unleashed his dastardly plan…havoc.

Choose your gods carefully. The underdogs are always looking for a chance to move up.


Mr. President, since you’re in the mood for giving out medals, I just wanted to let you know I’m on my way to set fire to a homeless encampment. I’ll swing by your place afterwards to pick up my bling.


Four Things

  1. I really want there to be a cure for cancer.

So here’s a bit of what we have so far.

"That was a powerhouse performance by two strong women who aren’t afraid to express their sexuality."

Dread.

President Donald Trump

I know what it feels like to be over-matched; to find myself trying to operate beyond my abilities. That’s why this confirmation of what we feared, no, what we’ve all known, fills me with dread.

You’re in over your head. … the rest “Dread.”


If someone is prefacing their argument with “I may not agree with everything he does, but…” or “Well sure, he says some things I don’t necessarily agree with, but…,” just know you are about to suffer through a bunch of gaslighting nonsense.

And what’s the deal with all these lefties “mourning” Qassem Soleimani? Oh look, they’re all made out of straw.


In a couple of my recent posts containing new year messages and greetings, I signed up myself up for humility and kindness in 2020.

First test of that commitment? Well that would be today.

War. Is it really so terrible?
