Democrats Choosing These Clintonites To Read Are G…

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 weeks. Maybe I'm still rolling my eyes at my recent encounter with Susan Bordo's absolutely brainless, anti-historical effort to deify Hillary Clinton. Whatever the reason, the article seems to have caught me at an odd time and really rubbed me the wrong way. I wrote a reply for its comments section, ran long and decided to turn the reply into an article itself, addressed to its authors:   "Hillary was and is incredibly popular."   That's the key line in your article, because it's emblematic of the kind of delusional garbage "thinkin…

Blogging stuff: Religion

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 dethr…

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 This man has no vision for America to push the nation forward and retreating to outdated ideas.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…

Stuff It

I grew up in a dichotomous environment. My mother loved stuff. She spent thousands and thousands of dollars on innovative gadgets, most of which she never learned how to use, most of which we had to dispose of when she moved from the big house. The best of these was a knitting machine, an elaborate …

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…

Deplorable state of Today's Music

My first article on this forum created a great debate in the political realm...but notice there aren't many posts yet on music (at least when  searching the category "art").   I hope to get a lively debate going here.  Here's a rant about just how lousy today's music is.

Our Modern Era Presidents

Richard Nixon changed the way Americans looked at Presidents.  He failed to stem stagflation despite wage and price controls and eventually was forced out of office under scandal.  By 1974, the Vietnam War, Watergate, gas shortages and stagflation began to alter the way in which Americans …
