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?
President* Trump, It’s silly, but I was hoping you were born in either the year of the rat or the snake. You weren’t, 1946 was a dog year, which is a drag since dogs are generally companionable, loyal, trustworthy, and friendly and you are none of these things except when it comes to sucking up … Continue reading Amy Coney Barrett ~ “just another brick in the wall”
President* Trump, It used to be pretty frequently that I’d chew on something I felt the need to write to you about for several days, trying to figure out how to approach it or how to articulate it effectively. Lately, though, I’m finding I just don’t have the mental capacity or the stomach to think … Continue reading Recency bias
President* Trump, It’s been one of those jam-packed Sundays and I’m pretty toasty so planning to keep this short. My big news is that I finished printing the Declaration of Independence pieces (there are five panels) and can take them to get their pictures taken tomorrow afternoon if I can swing taking some time off … Continue reading Our duty
President* Trump, This morning I was reading a WP editorial by Colbert King about the covid-19 small business grant debacle when I noticed that the embedded video offering was an interview with Nell Irvin Painter about the importance of capitalizing the word “White” when referencing “White” people. Even though I’ve lately gotten more used to … Continue reading Whiteness and white freedom
President* Trump, Clearly you’re trying to project a “He-Man” on steroids version of yourself as Commander in Chief by siccing federal agents in camo on protestors in cities led by Democrats through “Operation Legend.” And yes, I see that you all are ostensibly honoring the little boy who was shot and killed while he was … Continue reading We are being groomed….
President* Trump, I told you some months back that I planned to embroider the Declaration of Independence so that I can print from it and today seems like an appropriate day to give you an update. I still have about another week’s worth of work to do but I’m finally at the really good part … Continue reading Declaring independence
President* Trump, Just before 5:00 this morning my brother texted me the following headline and urged me to read the piece: “How Trump Could Lose the Election—And Still Remain President” It’s a Newsweek editorial by Timothy Wirth (former US Senator from CO) and Tom Rogers (editor-at-large at Newsweek and founder of CNBC), neither of whom … Continue reading Wirth and Roger’s nightmare scenario
President* Trump, Everything that I’ve seen written about the illegal assault on peaceful protestors last Monday to clear Lafayette Square focuses on your desire to strut over to St. John’s to have your picture taken holding up a bible. Every single one of the dozens of articles I’ve read, whether they are directly about the … Continue reading Shows of force ~ now and then, then and now
President* Trump, Laura suggested switching out the scare quotes and swapping in an * to indicate the illegitimacy of your presidency since this is likely how you’ll be listed in the history books. It may take a bit, but the writing is on the wall that you were aided and abetted by Putin and his … Continue reading The president* we needed at this time
