2016 Election Aftermath – Bonfire Of The Vulgarities. Pt 1

Share Button

Here are a few thoughts. People did not vote for Trump because of the insane / inane comments and tweets he said… Well… Maybe a few people did. As repulsive as some of his comments and tweets were, let’s face it, we have become numb / immune / apathetic to the vulgarities we are exposed to […]

DAMNED YOU OBAMA!!!!!!!!! YOU’RE NOT VISITING THE LOUISIANA FLOOD!!!!

Share Button

  That’s all over the social medias today. Obama is getting hammered because he is in Hawaii on vacation – playing golf of course (pun intended) – instead of visiting the flood region of Louisiana.  I got to wondering, what did his predecessor George W Bush do when floods occurred during his administration? Tropical Storm […]

Meme Watch – Our Failing Economy And The World War II “Cure”.

Share Button

A Conservative friend on facebook posted a familiar refrain about how FDR’s New Deal policies did not get us out of the Great Depression, that only occurred as a result of World War II. Being a bit of a history buff, I have to challenge that widely repeated assertion. First, lets define an economic depression: […]

When Supposed “Fact Checkers” Fail. UPDATE.

Share Button

I love it when someone at some blog tries to strip fact-checking sites like Politifact or Snopes of their “fact-checking” status, only to have overlooked things that show them to be in error. This is a tricky post to write, because I would be lying if I declared I hadn’t gotten things wrong from time […]

The biggest story of the day, maybe the year, is the fracturing of the GOP and the Trump campaign for the Presidency… If that’s really what he’s doing. There is this very famous news aggregate site that prides itself on being the master at featuring the biggest stories, on featuring the breaking stories before anyone […]

Trump Is NOT Hitler. Pt 2

Share Button

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post that compared aspects of the Trump populist candidacy and possible election to the Presidency to one of Americas most prominent populist Presidents, Andrew Jackson. This afternoon I realized there is a better, if equally imperfect, comparison to be made. It came to me as I was squawking with […]

“Crooked” Hillary, Pt 3 – The Wal-Mart Years.

Share Button

This was a request from my Laurel canyon bandmate Jim, who is very liberal – a socialist really, he’ll tell you so – and is not happy about Hillary having been on the board of directors of the “evil” retail store Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is the poster-child for horrible corporate governance for liberals. The aren’t unionized […]

“Crooked” Hillary. Pt 2 – Subtitled: The More I Research Her, The Less I Hate Her.

Share Button

Just about every time I look into an accusation or scandal about Hillary Clinton, something that is supposed to make me hate her or confirm my hate for her, I come out the other side with information that exonerates her, at least to some degree. An old chestnut hanging around for a long time, one that […]

“Crooked” Hillary?

Share Button

As a guy who holds a degree in radio / video / film production, the election season is always a fun time for me. There is so much propaganda out there to dissect, it’s hard to decide where to begin. But sometimes, things fall into your lap. Here’s one about “Crooked” Hillary Clinton, and her […]

Politics NOT As Usual.

Share Button

I’ve been a political junkie for a long time. As I’m fond of saying “I love the game, but hate the stench”. Over the years, I’ve watched campaign after campaign, on both side of the major party political fence, and have been more often than not somewhat bored by a lot of things that are […]
