Tips for being a Modern Day Racist.

Posted on July 14, 2019

    1.) Everyone is a racist. They just haven’t accepted it yet. 2.) When you find you are losing the argument, call them a racists, they will settle down and leave the argument. You can claim victory over the racist jerk. 3.) All people that fall on the Right Hand of the above scale are inherently racists. They really can’t help it you know. It’s a genetic disorder that will most likely never be fixed. 4.) All people that fall on the Left Hand of the above scale can not be racist. They have the opposite genetic disorder. And yeah, it will most likely never be fixed. 5.) Political viewpoint is a determining factor in racism. 6.) When in doubt, call the other…

The Democrats Dilemma.

Posted on May 31, 2019

  All is not well in the House of Representatives. Stirrings, murmurs, whispers are circulating the halls, the bathrooms, dare say I? The Gymnasium. The talk is whether to go ahead and Impeach the 45th President, Donald J. Trump for obstructing of justice. To do what is right for the American people, and ultimately, as their civic duty as Representatives. Unfortunately, that is not how it is going, instead? Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and every Cable, Newspaper and News Media outlet is working overtime to shove the impeachment narrative down our throats. Either for or against. And the outcome of this? Well as Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke said in his speech last night…wait? Did he give a speech last night? You know, I’m not…

Donald Trump…the guy at the end of the bar.

Posted on May 28, 2019

  Donny sits at the end of the bar. I’ve seen Donny around for years, usually sipping on his soft drink, maybe ordering a burger, Donny always has something to say. It’s best to ignore Donny, but he rarely ignores you. Some people like to argue with him, but those poor fools, well, Donny tends to get the better of them. “Yeah, hey Don, what do you know about politics? Huh? You’re just a real estate guy!” One patron will chuckle at him. Donny bobs his head, finishes his bite of his burger and calmly says. “You ever put up a garage at your house? Remember all the red tape you went though? Try putting up a hundred million dollar building in NYC, then…

We need to impeach President Trump right now!…like today, maybe tomorrow.

  We are wasting precious time here. President Trump must be impeached as soon as possible. If we don’t? We will never have enough time to see Mike Pence give the most boring speech telling us he is ascending to the Presidency with a Heavy Heart.   And that is just sad.   We really need to hear that speech. Then, we need now President Pence, to run for President in 2020 and just get his butt whooped. I am rubbing my hands in anticipation awaiting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s announcement they are moving forward on Articles of Impeachment. If this occurs, do you think Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy? We can only hope. Of course there is a slight problem…

The Inconvenient Truth about the Inconvenient Truth that is really Inconvenient.

Posted on May 7, 2019

    Did you hear the news? One million species are going to go extinct soon. All this because of some bipedal ape. Of course they will have to hurry, we only have 12 years left according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman Congresswoman from New York. Then again, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, a former Congressman from Texas, and is now a Presidential candidate for the Democratic ticket in the 2020 election, says we have 10 years left.   I am anxiously await for 8 years left.   Of course this mass extinction, and the subsequent fall of the bipedal apes is all caused by Climate Change. Formally known as Global Warming. Formally known as Runaway Green House Effect. And it is after us like…

The conclusion of the Mueller Report. The President is Human after all.

Posted on April 19, 2019

    I want to think the President was sitting in the Oval Office, pen in hand, when the news dropped. Rod Rosenstein had appointed a Special Counsel. He drops his pen on the desk. Laces his fingers as he sits back and takes a deep breath, sinus issues and all, and then looks up. He is looking at the Oval Office, a place, for almost two years, he has fought hard to be at. He really isn’t looking at anything, but thinking. He looks at the nervous messenger standing in front of him, and says the most human thing a person can say.   “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f’d.”   Of course it…

Forty Acres and a Mule.

Posted on April 17, 2019

      Well it’s back. Talk of reparations for slavery. Like many ideas floated around during the political season they all come from righting wrongs of our past. We are destroying the planet by carbon dioxide emissions. So, let’s sign a treaty and stop driving cars. We have an illegal immigration problem. So, let’s build a wall to keep them out. We celebrate that evil Columbus Day. So, let’s call it Indigenous Peoples Day instead. And on and on. Slavery Reparations have been tried before, the iconic 40 Acres and a Mule solution. Didn’t work out. Stopped by the Democratic President Andrew Johnson. It’s a long story, the short version is this: Take the land previously held by Southern Plantation owners and give…
