The Impeachment of Donald J Trump

I haven’t written for quite some time, primarily because the impetus for this blog and the eventual book I self-published, was religion. Specifically, that religions are false. The premise is false, the histories wildly embellished and in many cases completely fabricated, and the gods we invented are figments of our imaginations. At some point, there’s […]

Electoral College Dysfunction

Now that all the votes are counted in the 2016 Presidential election,  the losing candidate received almost 3 million more votes than the candidate declared the victor. At final count, 2,864,974 more people voted for a candidate who will not be President. This shouldn’t happen in a democracy, however as enlightened minds will tell you, […]

Trumpland? Not quite

I stopped writing about the 2016 Presidential election as it seemed to be talked about, pontificated about and debated in every medium available to people to communicate with. Now that it’s over, and the initial shock has worn off, I thought I’d jot down a few thoughts for posterity’s sake. With a TV celebrity and […]

Blowhard

This video perfectly displays the two main reasons I’ve come to despise Donald Trump: He makes boastful, bald-faced assertions of his greatness and expertise on any subject. He immediately disparages any opponent with the same childish tactic of calling them a failure. He does both of these things with no evidence of his position, or […]

Writer’s Indifference

My lack of output could be construed as the proverbial block often attributed to those who put words on paper. It’s actually a combination of not wanting to merely create content, but to write something meaningful, and ambivalence over the current state of affairs. I read a decent piece on Slate which criticized the online […]

Ain’t Nobody Got to Get Saved

At a NC rally for Donald Trump, Pastor Mark Burns was asked to warm up the crowd for the headliner. The good Pastor did his best to pump up for the Trump, but he also took advantage of the opportunity to have a microphone and a captive audience to comment on one of the Democratic […]

Cockstrong

I will first admit that I was wrong. In my previous scribblings about the GOP nomination for President, I incorrectly conjectured that Donald Trump would be gone after Super Tuesday. Like most predictions and prophecies, mine fell flat. While Nate Silver and the fine folks at Five Thirty Eight have dug deep and analyzed that […]

The South Rises Again; For Trump

Donald Trump rode his self-created wave of misogyny, jingoism, bigotry and insults to a victory in the Dirty South. In a week where he was vigorously booed by a South Carolina audience during a debate for daring to state the obvious about 9/11/2001 and the subsequent war in Iraq, where he verbally sparred with Pope […]

Make America Great Again

Donald Trump’s campaign mantra is exactly one word too long. While four words is a seemingly short declaration, this one makes a bold statement and raises serious questions. The Trump campaign’s mantra tell us that America was once great, however it isn’t currently, and that a Trump Administration would restore this greatness. The serious questions […]

New Hampshire GOP voters shock thinking world

Republican voters in New Hampshire went to the polls and cast votes in their state’s primary election, and stunned anyone who thinks by advocating for a fraudulent, petulant blowhard to lead the nation. I understand anger and voter frustration. I understand the evolutionary underpinnings of tribalism and Trump appeals to that deep-seated emotional and irrational […]
