Great GOP Ghost!

A play on the explaint of Perry White, (the editor of “The Daily Planet” of Superman fame), of “Great Caesar’s Ghost!” Remember, friends, how I published my requiem for the GOP in advance of Barack Obama’s first election. I was convinced, (and have never let go of the thought), that the Republican Party, (as we

Kool Aid! IV! STAT!

It’s one thing to “drink the Kool-aid”, it’s another to push it I.V. I get taken to task, (often), for being a “ONLY FOX” kind of guy. If you’ve followed me, (attentively), for more than a day or two you’ll note that stories from Fox make up <10% of my posts. I've made posts from

SLOW DOWN! I Can’t!

This one is far too important for me to copy, paste, edit, etc in a document format, (or two). I NEED to get this OUT THERE. NOW. Pardon my “sp” and “gr” errata, please! I am already hearing from many quarters that families and friends are throwing hope, faith and charity out the window, along

Bind Our Wounds.

The intensity of last night has drained me deeply. I’ve been “up & around” for a couple of hours, but I’ve been writing two different essays for Political-qrm and Minds, to which this is only a prelude. I will be recording a post election podcast w/ cugina Ann Marie at some time today, which will

Just A Very Short Quiche…

Ooops…auto correct…I MEANT “QUICKIE”. When it comes to my stance on things – I used to view Social Media as a “Field of Honor”. If you were following me till early last Summer, you know that to be true. I no longer see it that way. Well, I DO, but a little less so because

How’s Your Plumber?

Let me see if, for a very short essay, I can spell out a way you can justify a vote for Trump. You have a dripping faucet. You open up the Yellow Pages. You look at the ads. You see a plumber who identifies as a Democrat. Maybe he has a Jack…err…”donkey” logo in his

My Libertarian Friends!

Libertarian friends, follow me for a minute…PICK a candidate. No, not for this November, for November of 2020. This time, it’s too late. ALL you will do is skew the results, and I fear it won’t be in favor of the “lesser of two evils” but for the greater. We just can’t have that. Else

Another ‘Racist” Allegation in Maine?

Governor Paul LePage, (R-ME). I’m writing this as partly an essay and partly an open letter. I’ll leave it to you folks to decide which parts are which. I’m good like that. I have no trouble in taking my governor, (yes, I can call him that.  I voted for him twice), to task when he’s
