Here's some irony I'm being criticized for telling some Trumpsters "Fuck You" in response to their preaching of national "unity" and "support" for President-elect Donald Trump. Apparently they feel it lacks class and is offensive. Considering I've been listening to people's deranged, ignorant and asinine conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama for nine years and HRC... Continue Reading →
"It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere," wrote Voltaire in 1767. I would imagine it is because they have so willingly chained themselves to the sophistry of the demagogues they admire and, without evidence, believe. For example, I listened to a man this week argue that drug abuse is rampant among people... Continue Reading →
I'm an educated, elitist, liberal, progressive, secular Yankee. And I am damn proud of it. My heroes are other Yankees like Teddy Roosevelt, Ben Franklin, Rudy Giulani, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Sam Clemens, Walt Whitman and Jon Stewart. I'm tired of GOP politicians and revisionists of southern history denigrating my rich heritage. Yankees fought to preserve the Union... Continue Reading →

Buckley, Jr. Essentially, she is suggesting that those that disagree with her are sneaking into... Continue Reading →

The paranoid, self-important clowns on the right will think I’m talking about them and become indignant and defensive questioning my Patriotism. The delusional clowns on the left will think I’m talking about – well – the right. This is the fact that would make me laugh if it wasn’t so sad it makes me want to cry. Where’s a good clown when you need one? Send in the clowns.
Most of what is passing as insightful punditry is really intellectually dishonest sophistry. In some respects, it is my own fault. I use to naively believe ignorance was the result of a failure of education and society. I was ignoring 6,000 years (or 60 million years depending on whom you speak with) of human society.
A black and white world would certainly be convenient - I personally think there are entirely to many brands of toothpaste...
My grandfather and his brothers fought in Europe against Hitler and the Nazis. Stop disrespecting their sacrifices for politics. So before you start demonizing the DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED leader of the United States...
