Tom Friedman is A Idiot, Again

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 18:04:24 +0000

NY Times columnist and trophy husband, Tom Friedman, managed to spew out a column with his signature combo of obliviousness and obviousness. The topic was how Trump wrapped up America as a very nice present for Putin. What a clever metaphor. How did he ever come up with it at Christmas time? He brings up […]

My Life as a Welfare Queen

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 15:18:51 +0000

(This was originally posted in 2010. I’m reposting it in honor of the current GOP shitshow.  America, rest in peace.) It’s time for me to come clean and admit how much I scam and rip off the government. Yes, it’s people like me that keep your taxes high (not as high as all the other […]

Are My Cats Enabling My Depression?

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 21:02:25 +0000

I’m sitting around on a bleak Sunday afternoon. The sky is white and it’s unusually cold for Labor Day Weekend. The better-half is away on one of his work-related do-gooding trips to a developing country. Usually, I use his away time to get shit done, by which I mean household crafty stuff like redoing the […]

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 01:43:30 +0000

New Yorkers love to get away from the city, especially on long weekends during the summer, but if you didn’t make plans, it’s not too late to have a fun three-day weekend. There a lots of interesting places to explore within the five boroughs of New York City, and there are plenty of easy day trips outside […]

It’s Been Too Long

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 16:29:37 +0000

I was shocked to discover I hadn’t posted here since March. I feel like the dad who went out for cigarettes and wound up on the bum in Oakland. Really, I’d meant to come back. There has been some writing since then although not enough to justify my existence by any means.  You can find […]

Keeping up with The Americans and Homeland

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 18:03:10 +0000

This week on The Americans, Elizabeth proves once again how much self-awareness she lacks (all of it). Stan and Aderholt might want to rethink their recruiting techniques. The noose tightens around Oleg, and we get a surprise blast from the past. Catch my recap of The Midges, season 5, episode 3 at The Agony Booth.   And […]

A Modest Proposal 2.0: For preventing the elderly from being a burden on their children and taxpayers

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 20:10:03 +0000

Let us not worry about too much about being “politically correct.” Politicians, including that great Republican intellect, the very conscious of his party, the Honorable Paul Ryan has struggled with this issue, yet even he has endeavored to use the utmost tact when explaining to the public that Obamacare is in a “death spiral” because it […]

Homeland: It’s the Season for Treason

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 17:40:53 +0000

We can all agree that Dar Adal has to go, right? And it’s going to be very satisfying when it happens. But who’s going to be the one to take him out? For speculation on these and other great issues of the day, such as how did Peter Quinn learn to hold his breath underwater […]

Three Ways of Looking at Trump’s Bullying of Hasidic Reporter

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 04:42:16 +0000

What we learned from Drumpf’s reaction to “friendly” Hasidic reporter who asked for comment re anti-Semitic incidents: SCROTUS cannot read a room. He was hoping for a softball question. The question asked should have been an easy one, but he perceived a threat. Being an out-of-his-depth grifter in fight mode, he lashed out like a […]

The Ol’ Dead Truth Bit — With Apologies to Monty Python

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 06:34:17 +0000

The Once Free Press: Excuse me sir, uh madam, I’m here to ask about the statement the Press Secretary made about the crowd size at the inauguration…. KellyAnne Conway: Ah yes! The one and half million people who showed up for our Great Leader, the largest crowd ever. It was … The Once Free Press: […]
