I know EXACTLY why Junior is giving up his Secret Service protection.

It is SO much EASIER to conduct criminal activity when there aren't people who carry badges surrounding you round the clock every day.


I know that the "Unite the Right" atrocity was a few weeks ago now, but...

...as the time goes on, I get more and more pissed off.

While I have been estranged from my father for the past 32 years for a multitude of reasons, I have always honored the fact that he honorably served our country in two wars. He was an Army Air Corps bombardier in Europe in the second World War. While he didn't get a scratch in all of the heavy combat in which he participated, he DID see his beat friend die when his bomber flew into German flak. I also had four uncles in that war. My father's brother was a bombardier in the Pacific and three of my uncles were at Normandy. Only two came home because my Uncle Al never made it to shore, being shot and/or drowning mere steps off of the boat.

I am SO moved that Donald Trump thinks that my Uncle Al and my father's best friend were killed by nice people.

My stepmother's uncle, my great Uncle Felix, was a holocaust survivor. I don't remember which concentration camp but I know it wasn't Auschwitz because nobody hears THAT name and ever forgets it. I only saw Uncle Felix when I was 8 in the Summer of 1963. My two most vivid memories of him are of the number tattooed on his forearm and of how the Los Angeles police sirens at the time sounded just like the Gestapo's sirens when they came for his family and other Jews. Whenever Felix heard those sirens,he got a look of abject terror on his face. His wife and all of his children were all gassed by the Nazis.

I am SO thrilled that Donald Trump thinks that my Uncle Felix's family was exterminated by nice people.

My sister in law is Mexican, as are my two nieces and nephew.

I'm So delighted to know that Donald Trump considers people that I love to be rapists, murderers and drug dealers.

I have a distant cousin who reports for a small newspaper in the Suburban Philadelphia area.

It warms my heart that Donald Trump considers a member of my family to be an enemy of the people.

In my 62 years we've had very good Democratic presidents, Ike, a great man who was a good president, bad presidents, an idiot president in Bush the second and a senile president in Reagan.

While I will never use the title "president" to describe Donald Trump, I will say that this is the first time In my life, and I dare say the first time ever, that an occupant of that office bases his administration on nothing but anger, resentment and hatred. The disease is the 62+million morons who put him in office. Donald Trump is the symptom.

I'm not even entirely sure where I'm going with this, except to say that aside from simple political opposition, this is personal because he's talking trash about my family, and I will give his treasonous ass NO pass on that.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly over priced at that. Thanks for reading.


Am I the only person who suspects...

...that this shooring may be Donald Rump's Reichstag fire?


My wife and I saw Wonder Woman last night, and...


In the interest of full disclosure, along with Captain America, Wonder Woman has been my favorite comic book hero(ine) since 1963. I am a life long super hero nerd and have been since before nerds were called nerds...yikes!

I've been looking forward to this movie ever since it was first announced and it freaking EXCEEDED my expectations.

My view of the DC universe has always been that Superman fights evil due to his virtue, Batman due to a lifelong seeking of vengeance for the murders of his parents, and Wonder Woman due to the fact that evil just simply but severely pisses her off. The movie captured that perfectly in my view. the extra few bucks for the 3D tickets was completely worth it. I get the geezer discount anyway!

Even my wife, who isn't a big super hero fan, loved the movie.

Do yourself a favor, go see Wonder Woman and enjoy yourself.


My wife and I went to see Beauty and the Beast last night!

Wow, terrific movie, terrific cast, terrific music and beautiful cinematography, costumes, sets and effects.

Neither Emma Watson, Kevin Kline nor Emma Thompson should embark on singing careers, but they did a good job in what they had to do.

I think that Emma Watson was PERFECT for Belle and may well be one of the loveliest ladies on the planet.

We'd wanted to see it since we first saw the poster back in December and had fully intended to see it on opening night. However, the fact that Franklin Graham encouraged a boycott because there were "hummasexals" in the movie added to our enjoyment since we had the opportunity to show our "deep level of respect" for THAT asshat.

Give yourself a treat and GO!

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!


Before we get too excited about Comey today, ponder this.

Last October he performed an abuse of power that even freakin' J Edgar Hoover never did. Yikes!

If we're relying upon the integrity of the man whom hand delivered the White House to Grand Wizard Donald Rump, than we're going to be F**KED without a kiss!


How do YOU refer to Donald Rump in discussions?

I love certain designations that I've heard, such as Twitler, but what do YOU say?

In polite company, I refer to him as the "Grand Wizard of the United States. In other company, I simply say " fuckhead", since I want to keep saving "shithead" for George Dubya Moron.

So again, what term do YOU use? As fuckhead's favorite paper says, inquiring minds want to know!


In a very perverse way, I hope that Grand Wizard Donald Rump ISN'T impeached.

Before you start flaming me as a closet Republican/teabagger, please read.

I cannot even begin to tell you just how much I truly DETEST the reality show clown and hate monger that Vladimir Putin and James Comedy (along with a news media that spent over a year fawning over every Donald Rump action and blathering) installed into office. Another poster earlier today stated that an FBI friend had stated that this was going to make Watergate look like someone boosting a candy bar at 7-11. I believe that.

However, with Donald Rump, we know what kind of turd head we have. We know that he will indulge in a four year exercise of self worship that will alienate the vast majority of Americans and will hopefully inspire the third and fourth party nut cases to sit 2020 out.

I have two concerns about the next four years that stand out to me.

First, they might instigate some form of disaster that'll give a very compliant news media the reason to rally around the grand Wizard and be an instrument to quell domestic dissent as they did for George Dubya Turdhead after 9/11.

Secondly, since after Donald Rump there would follow Mike Pence and then, for two years at least, Paul Ryan, we're pretty much phaqued until 1/20/2021. My big fear is that if we get rid of Rump, than Pence may just possibly enough of a slimy, smarmy son of a bitch that he may be able to con just enough people into another four years of the current nightmare that begun last Friday...YUCK! With Rump, we'd likely be able to kick his ass out in a manner that made FDR versus Hoover look like JFK versus Tricky Dickie!

Until then, I resolve to do something every single day to show my objection, opposition and disrespect for Grand Wizard Donald Rump until the Putin/Trump administration is GONE!

That's my $.02, and quite possibly overpriced at that.
