Remember This Dude?

He actually isn’t anybody in particular. The legend is that he was first drawn sometime around 1812 as a stand-in for the federal government during the War of 1812. Assuming that is true, he’d be 210 years old. Doesn’t look too bad for such an old geezer. But he’s been pointing that finger, trying toContinue reading “Remember This Dude?”

Desperate Wannabe Despot

Donald John Trump Senior has officially declared his candidacy for the THIRD TIME for the Presidency of the United States of America. God help us all. Once was more than enough for me. I wasn’t all that crazy about Hillary Clinton but I knew he was a rotten, low-down stinker from the jump. What IContinue reading “Desperate Wannabe Despot”

Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!

I am so proud of the Democratic Party in Georgia for the sheer diversity and QUALITY of the candidates in this race. It is unbelievably representative of the faces I see every single day in Georgia. Can’t say that about the other side. They look like Wonder Bread. They’re so white, it is blinding. Let’sContinue reading “Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!”

Arguing With Brick Walls

I’m seeing that our President is slowly coming around to this conclusion. Chuck Schumer is a die hard bipartisan guy, bless his heart. He wants everybody to go away happy. Nancy Pelosi on the other hand came to this conclusion sometime in the Trump administration. Talking to brick walls is a waste of time. There’sContinue reading “Arguing With Brick Walls”

Living Passively Gets You Gas Chambers

In 1933, the Germans did not want to get involved with the government squabbles going on. One side wanted to side with Great Britain, while one side wanted a very conservative form of government that excluded immigrants, the gypsies (Romany), and Jews because they said they took away jobs from German citizens. The gypsies wereContinue reading “Living Passively Gets You Gas Chambers”

“Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake

The English language has some rather strange ways it does its verbs. One boy in my sibling’s class was asked to do the verb “to freeze”. He thought he had the perfect answer: “freeze, froze, frizen”. He was completely mystified when the class erupted in laughter. “Woke” is the simple past tense of “wake”. ItContinue reading ““Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake”

Ballot Bingo!

I don’t know what your reasons for voting might be or even if they are on this particular card. I know I have a couple that missed this one. But I would be content with these, too. I could probably fill up another card, though. The point here is that whether you are a singleContinue reading “Ballot Bingo!”

NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice

Democrats have historically played the role of the Mr/Ms Nice People. We have been the ones who bent over backwards to be civil. We were asked to be bi-partisan and meet in the middle. But the “middle” kept moving away from us, so we would oblige dutifully and shuffle along after it. Until finally, FINALLY,Continue reading “NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice”

Now THAT’S What Scares Me

Halloween is not my “thing”. I just have never gotten the point of the whole thing. But then I don’t do circuses and clowns either (at least the Barnum and Bailey kind. Cirque du Soleil-yeah, I can get into those.) Scary masks, pranks, and boo-ing people, though? Nyah. I’ll meet you over at the hotContinue reading “Now THAT’S What Scares Me”

At Least Complain To The Correct Place, Will Ya?

Voters to the “right” of the spectrum love to moan and groan about the prices at the gas pump. I’m not thrilled with them either. (I just filled up myself. OUCH!) I’m well aware of inflation, thank you very much, but you have to wonder if those folks EVER look at what is going onContinue reading “At Least Complain To The Correct Place, Will Ya?”
