Donald, Thanks to Mitch McConnell you have five more days, or a little over 120 hours, left in office. It should bring some measure of comfort that the time left is so minimal, but honestly, it really doesn’t. I’m picturing a graph where the time countdown is plotted against the desperation ramp up, the former … Continue reading Weaponizing the scaffolding
LOVE > FEAR
Mr. Grifter, Actually, a grifter is a small-scale swindler so it doesn’t really apply to you but I’m enamored of the rhyme (“mister” and “grifter”) so I’m going with it. I don’t want to focus squarely on you today though, so I’m going to segue to my preferred topic, which is the relationship between fear … Continue reading LOVE > FEAR
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
Nervous wrecks ‘R US
President* Trump, We’re getting down to the wire, aren’t we? Are you a nervous wreck? It’s not very charitable of me, but I hope you are. Even less charitable of me, I hope you’re having all sorts of symptoms associated with being a nervous wreck, to include even worse than usual concentration, restlessness, sweaty palms, … Continue reading Nervous wrecks ‘R US
They’ve shown their hand, and it’s trembling
President* Trump, The two recent Executive Orders pertaining to the federal workforce are certainly doozies. I’m referring to the one you issued on September 22nd entitled “Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping” and the one you issued on October 21st entitled “Executive Order on Creating Schedule F In The Excepted Service.” Seems to … Continue reading They’ve shown their hand, and it’s trembling
Mirror, mirror…. who’s the fairest of them all?
President* Trump, Is there no one in your camp willing to hold the magic mirror up for you to see how pathetic your groveling and race baiting looks? “Suburban women, would you please like me? Please. Please, I saved your damn neighborhoods, OK?” “….my favorite people in the world—the seniors…. We’re taking care of our … Continue reading Mirror, mirror…. who’s the fairest of them all?
Smoke, lies, and a couple of bright spots
President* Trump, I think Lifesaver and mint sales will spike in the Northwest this weekend as people try and mask the nasty metallic taste of the ash particulate we’re all inhaling all the time. It’s really eerie here – it’s 9:30 in the morning and lots of the street lights are still on, hardly anyone … Continue reading Smoke, lies, and a couple of bright spots
“Zero for you and two for me”
President* Trump, There truly is no bottom. There is nothing you won’t stoop to or crawl into bed with is there? Last night I had one of the worst night’s sleep I’ve had in a very long time and I woke up feeling pretty wrecked and honestly, I’m still feeling quite puny. But you know, … Continue reading “Zero for you and two for me”
Trumpian twisted nihilism and some antidotes
President* Trump, Isn’t it interesting that news about the huge, life-affirming ‘Get Off Our Necks’ Commitment March is now nowhere to be seen but articles about the death of an apparent Trump supporter in Portland whose last act was to spray bear mace at protestors are everywhere? And isn’t it interesting that news of the … Continue reading Trumpian twisted nihilism and some antidotes
