Potatoes for Brains

Alabama’s new GOP Senator Tommy Tuberville is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. As Groucho Marx said in Duck Soup, “He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don’t let that fool you. He really is an idiot.” According to the Alabama site AL.com: As a candidate, Tommy Tuberville was […]

The Domino Effect

Elon Musk tweeted this earlier, but I’m not totally sure if it is serious or meant to be a joke! I think you could probably make a case that without Facebook, none of this would have happened.

Trial by Twitter

On Sunday I posted the video from former California governor (and movie Terminator) Arnold Schwartenegger. This video has totally gone viral. The tweet has more than 1.1 million likes, which is better than Trump has ever done. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Trump did have one tweet that did better, with 1.9 million likes. However, […]

The Terminator

This is the most powerful speech I have heard about the events at the Capitol, from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Survival

The NY Times ran an opinion piece titled “Can Donald Trump Survive Without Twitter?” I think the question that may be even more important is “Can the Media survive without Donald Trump?” Trump’s constant sowing of division and outrage has been a bonanza for media. Not just “are they able to survive”, but also “are […]

Ding Dong, the Trump is Banned

Today, Twitter permanently suspended President Trump from its service “due to the risk of further incitement for violence,” effectively cutting him off from his favorite megaphone for reaching his supporters. I say, it is about time! And to anyone complaining that this is against the First Amendment, the Bill of Rights does not say that […]

Righteous Anger

Stephen Colbert has never been so angry, and rightly so. Watch this.

Lock Him Up

Just a few minutes ago, Donald Trump went back to stoking violence (luckily, Twitter removed it and locked his account). Trump has also vowed that he will not leave the White House when his term is constitutionally over. He needs to go. He should be stripped of the presidency. Now. Not in two weeks. Now. […]

We Can Do It!

I love this comic by Clay Bennett. Stacey Abrams is a national hero! She was able to flip Georgia’s electoral votes for Biden, just by getting democrats out to vote, and with any luck she will do the same thing for the senate.

Optimism!

Well, today is the election in Georgia. Is everyone holding their breath like I am? Please please turn this country around before things get even worse! I can only hope that Trump’s base is starting to figure out that his behavior after the election is that of a spoiled brat baby, a con-man, and a […]

Looking Forward

The number one thing that Joe Biden can do is to put an end to the pandemic. This will mean not just getting the vaccine out there and get enough Americans inoculated to establish herd immunity, but also a comprehensive PR campaign to change attitudes — and even more importantly, behaviors — toward the pandemic. […]

Deepfake Queen

You might think with all the movies coming out where we see footage of actors transmogrified to change their age, height or other attributes, people would understand that just because you see someone say or do something, it doesn’t mean it is real. No, that wasn’t young Luke Skywalker appearing in the final episode of […]

That Was the Year that Was

Can anyone think of a worse year than 2020? I mean, there have been bad events in other years, including 9/11 (in case you can’t remember, that was in 2001). Or Hurricane Sandy (2012), although the Galveston hurricane of 1900 was the deadliest natural disaster to strike the US, ever. Way (way) back in May […]

Merry Trumpmas?

Christmas is fast approaching, and the holiday parties are upon us. Most sane people will be having them remotely, or at least practice social distancing. Well, except for one very white house.
