Senate to Form Committee on Pornography

In response to news about Senator Ted Cruz watching pornographic videos on his cell phone, the Senate will be forming a new committee to explore the effects that viewing pornography might have on congress people's job performance. The committee will be comprised entirely of lonely Republican men as no Democrats expressed interest in joining the committee. The committee tasks itself with finding answers to several questions:

1. Does the portability of a cell phone outweigh the image quality found on an large desk top monitor?
2. If an aide asks to borrow your cell phone, is there policy in place that prohibits him or her from using your phone to view pornography?
3. Is it suitable for a Republican senator to view pornography when the one or all of the actors involved are known to be Democrats?
4. Is it suitable for any senator to view pornography when one of the actors involved is the FLOTUS?

Committee chairperson Chuck Grassley has already issued a request that any and all pornography in Senator Cruz's possession be immediately turned over for the committee's perusal. "If he refuses to comply [with this request]" said Senator Grassley, "I am eagerly waiting with my subpoena pen in hand." Minority leader, Chuck Schumer responded to the news of the committee by stating, "With their focus elsewhere, now will be a good time to push our own, Democratic agenda."


Muslims on My Campus

I've written before about my encounters with Muslims on my community college's campus. The ease they display around the other students never ceases to surprise me. Well, today I had two encounters with Muslim students.

The first encounter was on the way in to the building where I teach. There was a young, very dark woman in a hijab talking on her phone just outside the entrance to the building. She sat on one of the benches and had a loud, animated conversation in Arabic. Dozens of other students walked past her, not taking any notice of her at all. One white girl sat down on the bench next to her and did her own thing, getting ready for her next class.

Meanwhile, the horrors of the Portland train attack come to mind, and I wonder if...No, better to not go there.

The second encounter was with an older man who came to me for tutoring. He had signed up for an 11 o'clock appointment, but he was having a lot of difficulty printing out his essay. The tutoring lab assistant worked with him for several minutes, and they finally got it printed. With only twenty minutes left in our session, I knew I needed to be quick in ascertaining his main difficulty. I started to read through his paper. "Ah, another 'Identity" essay," I thought to myself. According to his essay, he was a student, the head of a household, and a Muslim. Those were the three "identities" he chose to write about.

Does this man realize that in tRump's America, Sikhs are being beaten and shot when they are mistaken for Muslims? Does he know just how dangerous the words he uses in his essay to describe himself really are?

After tutoring, I walked down the hallway, and I noticed a large display board placed in the middle of the foyer. On it was an announcement about an upcoming discussion panel for DACA. In large letters and in no uncertain terms it assured the students that the college was committed to their safety regardless of ethnicity or religion.

I need not have worried. My college protects its students.

I went out to my car with smile to eat my PBJ.

Every time I speak of the haters and losers I do so with great love and affection. They cannot help the fact that they were born fucked up!

Happy 4th of July to everyone, including the haters and losers!

Happy Thanksgiving to all--even the haters and losers!

Sharks are last on my list - other than perhaps the losers and haters of the World!
