Just a few questions on the way out the door.

Today is Veterans Day, or as I prefer to think of it now, Remembrance Day as it is referred to throughout the British Commonwealth.  I supposed to honor others for their service and I do. But I have also given some 35+ years of my life to the service of the United States. And on […]

Now it’s time to make some decisions

America fucked up last night. They had a choice to make-and they chose the selfish option. Now they deserve to suffer for it. And suffer we will. For the short term, people will rejoice, however when people experience the effects of the legislation that he will propose-and the Supreme Court nominees he will name, all […]

Barbarians at the gate

Tomorrow is, without a doubt, the most frightening election I have ever experienced in my adult life. As John Cole put it: “The best way I can compare my mood right now is the trash compactor scene in Star Wars, where I am living in a fetid world of Trump shit, while the walls are […]

Standing at the abyss…………

That’s where the land of my birth is today. Remember this scene from the end of the movie, Wall Street? That’s a great thought for 2016 especially as we have hordes of less than rational people screaming about e-mails again and again. All the while ignoring the really awful and totalitarian things of the man […]

Why the choice is not a choice……..

Which could also be why I kind of wish it was Bernie in the ring taking the fight to the orange headed dictator wanna be. But before I point out, that we don’t always get what we want-and with the barbarians at the gates we have to do things we don’t necessarily like, I’d like […]

This is now my motto for the election.

And what I think about most Trump supporters. They think they are good people. The only problem is that while feeling good about themselves- they are enabling the apocalypse.  So are you supposed to feel sorry for them or tell them go fuck themselves? I vote for option 2.   The sad truth is that […]

Dear Trumpkins

You think that Donald is your answer. As I have pointed out earlier-we all understand your desire for revenge, what we don’t understand is how you are so oblivious to the fact that it will hurt you. You want to repeal Obamacare? Fine-remember that a GOP Congress will not propose anything other than band aids […]

Dullbert

One of the more remarkable developments of this twisted and sick election has been the revelation that Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert and supposed champion of the downtrodden in corporate America, is actually a cheerleader for fascism. If you have been following his blog, you will note that he has been in the tank for Trump […]

Krakow

The S.O. and I went to Krakow for a long weekend. This is St. Mary’s Basilica in the center of the old city ( click to see properly):

Eleven Tweets that sum it all up.

And explain quite clearly why Donald Trump is a danger to the Republic and the people who follow him are the same as the Germans in the 1930’s who worked for and enabled the foundations of unspeakable crimes.  Your fixation on crap lke Benghazi, e-mails and the rest of the trivial bullshit ignores the key […]

There is never a thesaurus around when you need one…….

And if you were a news reporter, you needed one this last weekend. Because they all had to spend a lot of time talking about this: And there are only so many euphemisms you can come up with. Fortunately for us all. Samantha Bee was busy looking in the Webster’s, so you don’t have to. […]

The Vengeance Election

It’s been impossible for me to write in the past month. Between getting sick, traveling on a sacred pilgrimage back to the wonderful land of Japan and then returning to even more work-something had to give. Plus, watching the never ending shit-show that is the US Election has not left me of a mind to […]
