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 […]
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 […]
Dogs, the Rhythm Method and a Moon Base
The run-up to the nomination of the eventual GOP standard bearer has moved into decidedly hysterical territory. Apparently the thought of a Moon Base, which Mr. Gingrich emphasized would naturally be an American Moon Base, satisfied my neighbors in SC, and they decided that Newt Gingrich would make a fine President (further illustrating my need […]

These folks don’t generally get too far in the primary process, but you’ve got to admire their willingness to give it the old college try. In order of their declaration to run, here are the candidates for […]
The GOP Candidates for President-Part II: Jesus and a Gun
As I continue my preview of the contenders for the top spot in the GOP Race for the White House, I will turn my attention to the former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee. Huckabee has some very strong attributes that will make him formidable in the early GOP Primary elections: Southern Religious Folksy Along with […]
The GOP candidates for President-Part I. Is your underwear magical?
In this my first post previewing the 2012 contenders to the throne, i.e. the White House, I will focus on early frontrunner, Mitt Romney. Romney was a contender for the Republican nomination in 2008 until he suddenly threw in the towel and got behind John McCain. Political machinations were at work I suspect as the […]
