To: The Scariest Clown of Them All I’m sure there’s a boatload of yucky stuff percolating just below the surface, but so far this morning it’s been rather quiet on the aboveboard news level so I checked your daily schedule to see what you have on tap for the day. As it turns out – … Continue reading We have no idea where the bottom is
To: The Anti-historian Supreme Since the calendar has finally turned to December, does that mean you only have 14 more days to cash in on your peeps, what with the final Electoral College votes set to be cast on the 14th? Or are you going to somehow keep the charade going up to 1/20/21? Or … Continue reading Anti-historical America
Mr. Scam America
Mr. Scam America, I knew there was a more succinct way of describing what you all are doing with the various voter fraud donation websites than the phrase “theft by false pretenses” and it’s simply the word “scam.” How ‘bout that, huh? Just four little letters sums up your whole larcenous swindle incredibly well. What … Continue reading Mr. Scam America
POTUS obtains funds under false pretenses ~ again (or still)
To: The Lying Sack I see in the HP that Fred Eshelman is already suing the “True the Vote” (who came up with that gem of a name?) “nonprofit” to get back the $2.5 million he forked over for the cause, claiming that TTV didn’t keep him properly apprised of how his megabucks were being … Continue reading POTUS obtains funds under false pretenses ~ again (or still)
We’ve got to count all of the elephants in the room
To: The Shyster Have you seen Ed Norton’s Twitter thread laying out his ideas about the real reason you’re pulling all this bogus voter fraud and “oh, help me, they stole the election from me” bullshit? It’s old news now (2 days old, that is) but if you haven’t seen it, you might want to … Continue reading We’ve got to count all of the elephants in the room
To: The Handy Dandy Tool Yesterday I, along with countless far better informed and more articulate journalists, wondered aloud whether all the signs and portents emanating (spewing, really) from your administration and the GOP power-pack indicate that a coup is neigh. Indeed, for all the world it looks as though you all have pushed and … Continue reading Why him?
To coup or not to coup, is that the question?
One-term Trump, To coup or not to coup, is that the question? Or is the real question ‘to play at coup but not to coup’? Or what? What are you doing? Where are you going with all this? Do you even know or are you just reading the cue cards that someone’s putting in front … Continue reading To coup or not to coup, is that the question?
Our POTUS is trying to take US down
To: He who refuses to concede appropriately (as in, at all) The relief and modest jubilation phase is officially over and I’m settling back into worry mode as you drag this out and your faithful bootlickers elbow each other out of the way to prove their fealty to you and your lost cause. Lyrics from … Continue reading Our POTUS is trying to take US down
May the meek get unmeek
President* Trump, The poem-a-day poem in my inbox this morning is by Rena Priest and it’s called The Index and it feels solidly apropos this morning (https://poets.org/poem/index-0?mc_cid=091f8058c4&mc_eid=03fcdf422b). Priest riffs on the idea that “the meek shall inherit the earth” was an agreed upon promise early in our human story. She goes on to see/imagine it … Continue reading May the meek get unmeek
God save the data! Or else.
President* Trump, It took me three days, but last night I finally made it all the way through the HP’s long (long) report on the myriad ways your administration has undermined, thwarted, hacked, misrepresented, and disappeared, the data that the US government needs to do its jobs properly (https://highline.huffingtonpost.com/article/disappearing-data/index.html#credits). It was a huge effort (5 … Continue reading God save the data! Or else.
