A Brit Said it Right About Trump

British Writer Pens The Best Description Of Trump I’ve Read The ex-Prez with indictments for criminal conspiracy and theft of official documents, and who is the only gov. official TWICE impeached, who shared secrets with foreign nations, is somehow the GOP nominee for the next election. So, footballer (soccer) Nate White asks the following question: “Why do some British people not like Donald Trump?” A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety,...

Nikki Haley Will NOT Save the GOP

Her latest debate performance shows just how out of touch with reality she really is Former South Carolina Governor and Secretary of State Nikki Haley is, for some reason, over 20 points behind pussy-grabber DJTrump in the polls. And although she is nowhere near the threat to the republic he is, after watching the latest tete-a-tete with Desantis, I’ve changed my mind. Originally I thought if the primary comes to TX and DJT and her are on the ballot, I’d switch my party to the letter R, despairingly cast my vote for her as a bullet against DJT, then the next...

“. . . Not As I Do.”

The horrors and hypocrisies of the anti-choice movement know no bounds The Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health is easily one of the worst, most short-sighted decisions since the September 24, 1789 passage of the Judiciary Act.  In the 85,009 days between its founding and this disastrous decision, the Court has made several ghastly decisions, most of which have been rescinded or overruled by subsequent Congressional law. One of the major problems with the entire hearings in Dobbs which lead to the final ruling is the lack of professional medical guidance.  In the original Roe v. Wade decision,...

Oh, The HYPOCRISY . . .

On Nov. 30, a man named Marcus Lamb died of Covid-19 in a sleepy suburb of Fort Worth. He is a distant relative of mine, though I have never met him. He is, however, related to family members I truly, deeply love. My sincere sympathy for loss goes out to my affected family members. I know they grieve, thus in my heart I grieve for their sense of loss. The story of why I write this is a long and complicated one. I do not doubt Mr. Lamb was a sincerely well-meaning person, whose love of his specific deities and attached...

‘Hillary Clinton Tried to Warn Us – And Paid The Price; Let’s at Least Call Republicans What They Are’

[this post is taken directly from https://www.salon.com/2021/09/22/hillary-clinton-tried-to-warn-us–and-paid-the-price-lets-at-least-call-what-they-are/, used w.o.p., because sometimes others say better all you want to say . . .basically, unfortunately, the entire fuckublican party has – by embracing trumpism and his baggage – become a worldwide embarrassment] Still, America’s political class is unwilling to call the fascist, white supremacist Republicans what they are By Chauncey DeVega Published September 22, 2021 5:50AM (EDT) During a speech in September 2016, Hillary Clinton — then the Democratic presidential nominee — warned the American people and the world of the dangers represented by Donald Trump and his followers. She described the “volatile...

My Open Letter to the Hindu American Foundation

Dear HAF, Although I am also secular, I call myself a Hindu.  I have an unexplainable and unshakable endogenous love, sympathy and empathy for Hinduism.  Indeed, my letterhead has my name in Sanskrit, and lists me as an Indophile.  People from India have informed me I know more about India than many people who spent most of their lives there.  I speak some Hindi and Urdu and did a term paper on advanced rain and floodwater collection advances in early cities of the Indus Civilization. Hinduism is known and admired by many, including me, for its openness, its acceptance; indeed, for...

A Bit Out Of Touch, Maybe?

“…hear me clearly, America is not a racist country.” Those are — believe it or not — the words of the only black Senator in Congress, Tim Scott (R-SC).  And here’s the most ubiquitously baffling part: he said this just after admitting how many times he’s been pulled over for driving while black, and how he’s followed in stores for being black. This came out as part of the Official Republican Response to Prez Biden’s first State of the Union speech, one in which he called out and stated one of the biggest threats to our nation being from within: radical...

Better Breathing Through Politics

At times like this, I think of the axiom “Inhale the future, exhale the past”.  My own breathing since the end of January has been better than it had in the previous 4+ years.  Right now, I don’t even know where my Albuterol inhaler is hiding. Gone are the days where I would wake up and instantly pick up my cell phone and tap Flipboard to catch up on the news.  What mean, insulting, idiotic Tweet did DJTrump shit out at 3 in the morning from the porcelain throne?  What latest announcement of horrid policy has been or will be announced...

The World Just Became A Better Place

A broadcaster acquaintance of mine used to say, and have on his old Website the maxim “A different world is possible”1. A variant form, related by a character in Carl Sagan’s sci-fi book and movie Contact — in response to an admission of unfairness — states a mind-numbing truism: “The world is what we make of it”. And now, the world is a better place. I know I will be called terrible ad hominin things for saying this.  And I don’t give a fuck.  But IMHO, the recent death of one of the most horrid and horrible humans to have ever...
