A Bladder Full Of Hot Air

How about that left hand. Ace? How about that left-handed draw? Mr. Ace Hanlon. Scourge of the sagebrush. The terror of Tucson. A bladder full of hot air.- The Quick and the Dead Well Mr. Herod, you did shoot him dead. Not so full now. So the House of Saud is threatening “responses” to any …

All Hallow

It is a scary time right now. Sarah Sanders has been run out of restaurants. I mean, there’s a list of things going on. Now you’ve got witches that are placing a hex on Brett Kavanaugh! Did I mention I’m an atheist? I’ve often thought that should I run for public office I’d elide that …

Confusion in Trans-Allegheny

Well, that was what they called it before the Pro Slavery Insurrection when they defied the General Assembly’s Declaration of Secession and were rewarded with their own State in compensation. It was a proud moment and a high water mark for a region that has become progressively less… Umm… progressive? I hate that term as …

MBS

I know what ‘it’ means well enough, when I find a thing. It’s generally a frog or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?- A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale Usually in my writing MBS stands for Mortgage Backed Security (kind of a bad thing that ought to be closely regulated) but …

About Last Night

Last week is still a bit painful. This week Seth Meyers returns and he’s one of “ours”. Now, if they could just get Sam and Trevor and Stephen, heck, even Jordan Klepper. You know, he was derivative (mashup of Stephen on steriods and Jon) but he was funny. How about Larry Wilmore? Haven’t forgotten about …

Signs of the times.

I’m not really spoiling anything if I tell you that the Republican Party is withdrawing funding from many candidates who’s chances of winning are marginal.

Babies

I dunno, I gave up Cap Pistols when I was about 8. I had a brief fling with plastic replicas when all the kids were LARPing Army in my early teens and another with the 20 Shot Starter Pistols (you use them for starting a race, not to train kids to love guns) when the …

Rotten From The Top Down

As I feel the need to remind people from time to time, Trump is only part of what’s wrong. The real problem is Republicans. What Trump does is articulate their abhorrent agenda out loud. Oh, and he has no manners (shoe leather and ketchup, yeesh). Other than that his polcies are mainstream Republican from the …

Direct Action: Valve Turners On Trial

(W)e who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with. Like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered …
