Bad Hair Day

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

Let me just say, to whatever choir is still listening, it is time to sing a new song because today, October 27, 2018, our carnival barker-in-chief opened a political rally that he almost cancelled, he said, not because of the pipe bombs or the Synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh, but because he stood under the wing of Air Force One and got his hair wet and he was having a bad hair day.

If I have to write anymore, or explain anything else, then you are too stupid to draw breath so thank God you don’t have power over your own breathing,

except you do,

just saying…

Good Lord! If I had tuned in to this news conference spectacle and heard Trump without knowing he was the President, I would have thought him an escaped Carnival Barker from a 4th rate Tent Show.

NYTimes Kavanaugh comment

By appearing on Fox News, Kavanaugh has just proven he is nothing more than a political hack. His desire to be on SCOTUS overrides his sense of justice and if confirmed, he will forever taint, to a higher degree than now, the politicization of SCOTUS. If he wanted to talk with the press, he should have held a news conference, not appear on a partisan network with his red cheeks blazing.

Sen. Feinstein should not have spoken about the truthfulness of Dr. Ford’s memory on Fox or anywhere else. Dr. Ford is under right wing attack, it appears, so if Feinstein was going to comment at all, it should have been about that. The pressure Dr. Ford is under is unimaginable to most of us. I have nothing but respect for her ability to decide when and how to speak out. She will live with these decisions for the rest of her life.

I am an Awards Show junkie and I had to quit watching the show at 5:30 PDT, 1/2 hour into it, in my living room, by myself, because I am disgusted and humiliated and embarrassed by the lame and continually unfunny diversity jokes. Goodbye Emmys.

Agreed!! This is the worst emmy show I have seen!

Also, the dig at Jesus in the opening, I could hear televisions shutting off across America. I’m an atheist but come on, leave Jesus out of it.

What a day! We had Judge Kavanaugh in front of the Judiciary Committee sweating and swerving around questions like a Bumper Car Champ at the county fair. Then, during the Judiciary hearings, we had a White House official named Anonymous opine in The Times about how s/he along with other White House comrades are saving the country from “amoral” Trump but oh wait, except for the tax cuts Trump and the Republicans passed and the judicial nominees the “amoral” Trump is appointing to the Supreme, Appellate and lower courts… but s/he is avoiding a Constitutional crisis by not triggering the 25th Amendment to the Constitution which is, yes, you got it, an Amendment to the Constitution so how possibly can it create a Constitutional crisis?

Ask Anonymous, I guess.

Sweet Dreams, Dot Stanley

Jean called me tonight in California and told me you died two days ago in Richmond.


Your sincerity and laughter was abundant in high school in Roanoke. I can picture you in my mind’s eye, your delicate smile and soothing eyes, your acceptance of anything and everything about whatever was going on at the time. Never a harsh word.

We kissed on a date, once. We laughed. And danced, as I recall.

I never told you how much I appreciated you at the time, Dot. But you deserve to know. So now, better now than never, thank you.

And thank you, Jean.

We all did the best we could in the early 70s, with no idea what was coming at us, as we became adults and carved out our paths and desires and our sweet, sweet dreams.

Poverty in America

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

While the politicians ignore the poor, and the media behave like a member of the ruling and upper classes, always going back to interview those Trump supporters, but just letting them talk, on and on, without asking them challenging questions, any questions for that matter - yes you, NPR, Here and Now, Midday Edition in San Diego, etc., etc., etc.

I guess poverty is too depressing. You trip over a homeless person as you walk out of your 1 million dollar condo with 1200 sq. feet, then a block down, scoot by people lying on sidewalks, then in another block hop over the piss coming from (is she a dead woman) so you don’t muss your new shoes - while the rich get welfare and the farmers get bailed out for Trumps tariffs and the poor get dead.

Welcome to MAGA.
