We are closing in on three months of Trump-o-Matic. It has been a wild and crazy ride.  Crisis, to calamity, catastrophe to cataclysm. Except instead of the fascist state we feared, we got the Keystone Kops. Which we did not expect.   As we  spend our energy trying to dethrone the morons, I want to believe someone is paying attention to the briefings Trump-o-Matic ignores. I read somewhere today he wants to get “raw” briefings. That would be raw intelligence data which hasn’t passed through any intelligence agencies for analysis. If you think his inability to read a piece of legislation is a hoot, think how boisterously merry we’ll feel when he tries to wend he way through raw intelligence briefings. Yes, I know he won’t do it himself. So let me rephrase it: what do you think Ba…

Minimum Wage is NOT Fair Wage

Income Inequality is when the best worker gets paid more because that worker produces more.   Every time wage levels are forced above (higher than) the actual value of the work done by an entry-level worker it causes major changes, but the most daunting are that the entry-level worker is then r…

Hello ladies and gentlemen…   I’d deviate a bit. My today’s topic is one of those touchy issues nobody wants to acknowledge in our society. It is also a question to both genders. My question is;   What’s The Solution To Sexism And Harassments Of The Female Gender In…

A Message To Trump Supporters.

I have decided to comment on Trump's Presidency since it is close to 100 days of him being in office. I will say is that Trump is definitely unfit to be President. This man has no vision for America to push the nation forward and retreating to outdated ideas. I am glad that his wife and son are leav…

Now for something completely different, a break from the usual political articles. Something entertaining and timeless. Superheroes...   Superheroes, both in print, and more recently in film, have inspired the imaginations of many people, myself included. They have served as a means of excapes…

I totally get why people would want to tune all out politics. What’s going on in our country right now is an effing fiasco; a train wreck of epic proportions; a depressing, dismaying, infuriating, shocking clusterf**k of authoritarianism, fascism and isolationism. Who wouldn’t want to b…

Poking around Medium today, I came across this noxious little item, " ," by Sasha Stone and Ryan Adams. It's written by a pair of delusional Clintonites, still trying to relitigate the 2016 presidential campaign, when their candidate failed so miserably. Maybe it was because I've had a slow last two…

Blogging stuff: Religion

Along with the other trends in following I mentioned recently, I feel that I have to mention something else that is beginning to reappear at a rather alarming rate. I have noticed that some followers and commenters lately have been of the ‘Bible-bashing’ variety.   Personally, I do…

It's 4.30 pm, the Muezzin calls for an early prayer. It wakes me up regularly, and I lie quietly in bed and listen to that mix of religion and the sound of the fan which allows me to sleep in the heat. My room has no windows, so 95F is not uncommon when I go to bed at around 2am usually, not before…

 Bob Dylan said in the early sixties; "the times they are a changin".  One of the constants of life is change. When we cease to change we die. However many want to think they live in a permanent cocoon, and live their lives based on how things operated in the past. And it is this resistanc…

Trump, the first 100 and Broken Promises
