This scares me a little. Actually, it scares me a lot, and it has for quite a while. Long before the Coronavirus made its appearance, but that has brought it into even sharper focus. Almost every post on social media that even hints at politics (or political figures) links to commentary. Editorializing. Opinion. And in … Continue reading Why are we treating opinion as news?
OK, I was starting to foam at the mouth... "My people skills are fine. It's my tolerance for idiots that needs work." And the idiots crawl out of the woodwork during a crisis. People who somehow think the laws of nature don't apply to them. These are the ones who drive 55 on icy highways … Continue reading I plead guilty and throw myself on the mercy of the court…
I was waiting for today to see if my predictions were accurate. So far, the Circus hasn't disappointed. They've performed exactly as I knew they would. And they will continue to perform as I knew they would, just like any other trained monkeys. Which makes this post difficult to write, to be honest. What's the … Continue reading Is it over, yet?
I've been watching the circus. You know, the one currently being held over in Washington DC. The one that's been dominating our news cycle for weeks. If nothing else, what I've seen has convinced me of one thing: I don't like the circus. You might not know this, but I have a legal background. I … Continue reading …And In The Center Ring…
Back in March, some neanderthal shot up a couple of mosques in Christchurch, NZ, and I wrote a short post about it (here). A few days ago, a 16 year old kid killed two of his classmates, wounded two more, before shooting himself in the head; he later died. It was his birthday. I don't … Continue reading Santa Clarita, CA
You've probably figured out by now that I support the Constitution of the United States. I support it all, in fact, even the parts I find inconvenient, which is apparently something of a novelty. Certainly many of our elected representatives, the people who have actually taken an oath to protect and defend the whole thing, … Continue reading Mao ZeO’Rourke
The mind boggles. On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) a domestic terrorist organization. While a symbolic act, they are urging other governmental entities to do the same. Apparently, support of the US Constitution (the 2nd Amendment in particular) is enough to brand you a terrorist in … Continue reading Apparently, I’m a Terrorist.
We live in dangerous times. We live in a era where divisiveness rules. Our differences deliberately amplified, our similarities ignored. "We" cannot be like "them" - even when "we" are actually more like "them" than not. We are taught to hate those who don't look/act/think as we do, and that hate is OK. We live … Continue reading The Times We Live In
I've about had it. I've had enough of the faux outrage, the selective offense, the one-sided media attention. Name your subject, and I'll guarantee there are important, even critical facts that are being white-washed, swept under the rug, or just completely ignored. And you're OK with it. Immigration. Yes, the conditions in those camps are … Continue reading And you’re OK with it.
OMG, the obvious cover-up. AG Barr had the completed report for 24 hours before he provided a 4-page summary? On a Saturday? He's obviously hiding something. Oh, the humanity! Yes, boys and girls, that was sarcasm. I realize it might be a little subtle for some of you, but that's me being sarcastic. It's a … Continue reading Mueller Report
