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.
The Times We Live In
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
And you’re OK with it.
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.
Doing It Backwards
It's a time-honored tradition that Ohio is following. Jumping on the least effective, most harmful method of limiting behavior they don't like. Same for Utah, Louisiana, Iowa, North Dakota... Ohio's governor just signed into law a ban on abortions beyond 6 weeks. Aside from the fact this is contrary to SCOTUS rulings and will be … Continue reading Doing It Backwards
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
A couple of days ago, an arrogant, hate-filled Neanderthal shot up two houses of worship, killing dozens of innocent, defenseless people. I don't have the words to adequately describe my revulsion, both of the act and the attitude that spawned it. But they caught the guy. He'll never be out of custody, he'll live out … Continue reading Christchurch, NZ
Daylight Savings Time
Let it be known that I really dislike changing my clocks twice a year, and the disruption to my sleep schedule it brings. I mean, I really dislike it. With a passion I dislike it. In the Spring, you lose more sleep than just that hour, it disrupts your sleep for days. And you don't … Continue reading Daylight Savings Time
Single-Payer Health Insurance
I'm home sick from work, and just had a WTF moment. I read an interview with this self-proclaimed "tax guy" who's figured out how to pay for single-payer healthcare. Which isn't healthcare, but I'll let that slide for the moment. While he's got some tax-reform ideas that are worthy of consideration, he otherwise doesn't have … Continue reading Single-Payer Health Insurance
OK. Let me get this straight. We have a serial liar, who was convicted of being a liar, who has admitted to telling people what they wanted to hear (or at least convey) despite those things being patently untrue, whether or not he's under oath... And we're supposed to believe him now, when he's telling … Continue reading Cohen
Well, how's this for a starter? A hate crime, complete with MAGA hats and racial epithets, gay slurs and a noose. Not unlike a pre-Civil-Rights-era lynching. Except it's pretty certain now that it didn't happen. Apparently, victim Smollett is actually mastermind Smollett. There still needs to be a trial – or a confession, which is … Continue reading Jussie Smollett
