Hello Dear Readers, Below is my last letter to President Trump, which means that I will no longer be adding to this blog. You can find me at my new address ~ https://thebidenletters.com/ ~ where I will be posting letters to President Biden more days than not (though not every day!). Thank you to everyone … Continue reading Clumping cat litter
A Thanksgiving acrostic
To: The One Who Is Finally Inching Closer To Accepting His Reality For some reason our wifi isn’t cooperating so I can’t open the WP article about how you’ve finally (finally) said that if the Electoral College vote goes for Biden (what planet are you on that there’s an if here?), you’ll deign to leave … Continue reading A Thanksgiving acrostic
Kicking back for a bit with Monty Python
President* for a short while longer Trump, This feels rather like a cheat but it’s just too good to pass up so I’m going to indulge myself. In his “we can finally exhale” WP editorial this morning, Max Boot likens your lame-ass “mad Tweets” claiming victory (seriously dude, get a grip) to the Black Knight … Continue reading Kicking back for a bit with Monty Python
Bon voyage dear POTUS?
President* Trump, Looks like I’m late to the party, or at least to the pre-funk where we get to savor the idea that you’ll make good on your threat to leave the country if you lose the election. Yesterday I got a Daily Kos notification about your quip during the super-spreader rally in Macon, Georgia … Continue reading Bon voyage dear POTUS?
“REST / RANT / LIVE” (repeat)
Dear President Trump, In the interest of keeping it real and not so much about you, I’m going to give you a micro-slice from my day. Last night I mentally mapped out this morning’s walk and made a plan to go visit the legions of little clay creature/people about a mile south of us across … Continue reading “REST / RANT / LIVE” (repeat)
Dear President Trump, A less than 2 minute scan over the WP headlines tonight suggests there are any number of heavy, hard, actually shitty, things that I could choose to write to you about – the heaviest, hardest, and shittiest of which is the headline “’For black folks, it’s like a set-up: Are you trying … Continue reading Sunday snippets
I beg your pardon, but inequality is not a mere distraction
Dear President Trump, I have a hyper-local vignette and a bigger picture take for you for today. I’m not sure whether I’ve mentioned this before, but pre-you, Laura and I played Scrabble most weeknights. However, once you were installed as POTUS, it wasn’t until covid-19 slowed everything down and eliminated my commute time that it … Continue reading I beg your pardon, but inequality is not a mere distraction
The common good needs us to step up and stay in
Dear President Trump, There are a lot of inspiring, supportive messengers out there cheering us on, encouraging us to listen to our better angels and look out for ourselves and each other. For example, there’s Fantasy A, who posted signs up and down a street on my walking path this morning that say: Remember to: … Continue reading The common good needs us to step up and stay in
Thank goodness for true leaders
Dear President Trump, So hey, I’m pretty sure being caught “back on your heels” is worse than being caught “flat footed” but neither one is good and both would be generous descriptions of your administration’s inept response to the covid-19 crisis. You see, both these idioms reference situations where someone is surprised by something or … Continue reading Thank goodness for true leaders
Dear President Trump, Jennifer Rubin’s WP editorial today reminding us that democracy is not a meritocracy was a bittersweet read as it sinks in that Elizabeth Warren almost certainly doesn’t have a viable path to the nomination. Rubin clearly thinks Warren is meritorious, along with Klobuchar and Buttigieg. She notes that Steyer probably should have … Continue reading Go figure….
