Little Suzi: Hi, Uncle John! Uncle John: Hi, Little Suzi! How are you? LS: Oh, I'm fine, thank you for asking. But I have a question for you. UJ: Oh, really? LS: Oh, yes. You know a lot of things, right? UJ: Well, some people think so. At least 12 or 13 people. Ha ha. … Continue reading Little Suzi has a Question
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?
You may not know it, or mean to, but you are. If you're posting those accusatory memes on Facebook, the ones about the stimulus "handouts" or that Trump called the Coronavirus a hoax, you're spreading lies. It's easy to get swept up in it. You see a meme that puts into simple terms the anxiety … Continue reading You LIE!!!
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…
That's a well-used line, usually uttered when the hero rides off to almost certain death over the objections of his companions. Used frequently in war movies, Han Solo delivered it as he rode off into the blizzard on his Tauntaun... I'm using it in a slightly different context. I'm extremely frustrated with our current situation. … Continue reading I’ll see you in Hell…
Didn't I call it? Didn't I know how it was going to fall out? Every step of the way, I called the next dozen steps, and every time I was right. Since 2016, I called it... On a party-line vote - with one notable exception, which I didn't foresee - the impeachment process ended with … Continue reading I called it.
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…
We're the United States of America. We're not the United States of Europe. Or the United States of Scandinavia. Or the United States of Australia. Or Asia. Or India... We are unique. We were founded on unique principles and by a unique brand of people. Our ancestors may come from other parts of the world, … Continue reading We’re the United States of America
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
