Dear President Trump, Delays be damned, right? Oh, I forgot – your Treasury Department is so nimble that the staff can retool their whole printing process, from home no less, so quickly that they’ll still be able to get checks out to the poorest Americans by early next week, which is only 5-ish days after … Continue reading Our free fall into tyranny isn’t going to stop by itself
Dear President Trump, I’m guessing you and yours aren’t exactly looking forward to the big day tomorrow with all its focus on what one is thankful for. I bet most people at the table will drink too much and will laugh too loudly in their efforts to offset grumpy you (or really, freaked out you). … Continue reading Tough table topics
Dear President Trump, Two things this morning got me muttering “f*cking babies” over and over, but before I tell you what they are I want to say that I decided it would be better to go with “f*cking snowflakes” instead since I don’t want to denigrate babies. Babies are supposed to get fussy and cry. … Continue reading Real f*cking snowflakes
Dear President Trump, I’m torn between elaborating on what seems to me to be the word of the day, which is “sordid,” and wrestling with the reality of being a speck. I think I’ll just list three of the sordid bits that are floating on top of the oil slick this morning and then move … Continue reading Speck-hood
Dear President Trump, Happy Tax (Evasion) Day! Is the “ha – they are such fools, they don’t know how I’m fleecing them!” glee you typically feel on April 15th somewhat dampened this year by the looming threat of having your recent tax history on display for all to see? Sarah Sander’s latest missive regarding your … Continue reading Donald Trump ~ George Washington; compare and contrast
Dear President Trump, I think you may be an expert on this issue so I’ll ask you first – do you think ultra wealthy people engage in philanthropic actions more to distract others from their misdeeds and greed or to assuage their own guilt and cement their sense of entitlement? Either way, it was refreshing … Continue reading Taxes owed by do-gooders and scumbags
Dear President Trump, I don’t have the day off today since I’m considered an “essential” federal employee. Basically, the message at the VA has been that if employees are scheduled to see veterans today or are in direct clinical support roles they are expected to show up and do their jobs. No arbitrary cancellations will … Continue reading A very pricey impromptu federal holiday
Dear President Trump, Your top dollar Mar-a-lago New Year’s Eve party is probably starting to hop about now. Are you donating the entrance fee to charity? How about donating to an anti-bullying campaign to support Melania’s chosen cause? If you were to make a strong gesture in the direction of stopping bullying, it would be … Continue reading We won’t be unseen or unheard
Dear President Trump, I almost typed “Dear President Rump.” Fitting. There are some other choice words that rhyme with trump like lump, dump, and crump, which means to explode heavily, and slump. I know, there’s bump as well and I suppose that fits in a way too. Maybe others are too grown up to go … Continue reading Cue the sycophants!
Dear President Trump, I haven't watched any TV in probably 12 years but I think maybe I need to find a show or ten to binge watch so I have something to distract myself with and to limit the time I spend obsessively reading the news online since it is such a downer day in … Continue reading Is there a master plan?
