Dear President Trump, Sounds like you got an earful during your remarks at the NYC Veteran’s Day parade today. I’m sure some people there think you hung the moon, but there were probably more who’d prefer your view of the moon was from behind bars judging by the copious “lock him up” and “traitor” chants … Continue reading Out of the mouths of babes….. and grandmas
Dear President Trump, Sometimes the Twitter-verse does weird stuff with time like it did yesterday when Laura excitedly read me a Tweet about 19 African American women having been elected into judgeships in Harris County, Texas (Houston area) and how this means that now 25 of the 75 judges in that county are African American … Continue reading Fresh eyes and fresh beliefs
Dear President Trump, Happy Celtic New Year – it’s a new day dawning, isn’t it? A new day with oodles of new challenges ahead as you try to come up with new shade to throw now that we are into the open hearing era of this impeachment process. I’m sure you’ll be trying out new … Continue reading The impeachment avoidance plan
Dear President Trump, I had another letter almost completely written this morning but the day’s events are too important to put on hold until tomorrow so the original letter will have to wait. I just read the opening statement that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman will be reading when he testifies before the House Committees that … Continue reading Chain of command
Dear President Trump, Since I wasn’t officially on the work clock Friday, having taken a sick day, I was relatively free to do more or less what I wanted, even if it did have to do with work. One of the work-y things I did that was repeatedly hard to get to during regular workdays … Continue reading Visual environments that erase us
Dear President Trump, I’m not sure whether I’m really fighting a cold or am just tired, but yesterday morning I felt pretty awful and decided to take today as a sick day preemptively. It wasn’t really necessary since I seemed to have bounced back, but it was nice to be able to sleep in and … Continue reading Frailties, possibilities, and getting down to work
Dear President Trump, Hey, I owe you something of an apology. Laura pointed out last night that you aren’t a “would-be demagogue” but rather a very real one. I had the meaning of demagogue confused with words like despot, autocrat, and dictator and didn’t want to suggest that you are in complete control and thus … Continue reading What’s up with Pence?
Dear President Trump, Maybe you’ve never had such a nightmare, but you’ve probably heard people talk about it when they’ve dreamed they’re sitting in a class and the teacher says it’s time to take the test and the dreamer had no idea there was a test and wakes up in a panic. It’s a pretty … Continue reading How low will they go?
Dear President Trump, Happy “National Character Counts Week”! Apparently this is the 26th consecutive year that both the President and the US Senate have declared this week as THE WEEK we are all supposed to pay extra special attention to the Six Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. I was previously … Continue reading Character counts ~ some of the time
Dear President Trump, What does this WP headline conjure for you? “Growing number of Republicans struggle to defend Trump on G-7 choice, Ukraine and Syria” Frustration? Rage? Abject terror? Disdain? Confusion? Hurt? All of the above? Do you even know this is the message the American public is getting now, or have your still-loyal minions … Continue reading Cockroaches scattering in the light
