Enough is Enough

The little lawn gnome BabyHead Putin is at it again. Enough is enough with detaining Brittany Griner. Call it timing, coincidence, or whatever, but JoJo is heading to Asia just as our favorite North Korean maniac Kim Jong-un has decided on launching a long-range missile test. Go figure. Pakistan just got hit with an outbreakContinue reading “Enough is Enough”

No Picnic

As promised, my short story Mexican Vacation: Mexican Vacation           Dave lay perfectly still on the cool adobe floor. He kept his eyes shut and listened to the infected rats shuffling across his cell. He could hear the screams of the former occupants of this six-by-six hell hole. In Spanish or English, it didn’t matter;Continue reading “No Picnic”

Moving Right Along

The Domestic Despot just kicked my chair, almost knocking me over. All I said was “Is there anything hotter than a Ukrainian woman with bright red lipstick holding an AK-47?” Evidently I’m sexist. I’m playing an open mic tonight at the Lucky Star Brewery again. The lady I referred to in a previous post calledContinue reading “Moving Right Along”

That’s One Way to Look at It

Our boy Putin is warning that the US is planning “interventions” in the Ukraine and this could possibly lead to “heightened aggression” in the area. Oh really dumbass? Ya think? And how convenient of you to cover your ass by firing the first salvo at Jo-Jo’s backside. Actually, the correct political move to make, andContinue reading “That’s One Way to Look at It”

Keen Observations

I see that Britain has announced that, according to one of their studies, our planet is heating up. Don’t you just love how countries will every so often make a public stance telling us absolutely nothing new and nothing we didn’t already know? As they deliver their findings to the world, they act as ifContinue reading “Keen Observations”

What’s Going On

I see a man and his son were arrested for suspicion of starting the Caldor Fire in northern California earlier this year. Without even knowing any of the facts, my knee-jerk reaction is to vilify the suspects and wish them a spot in the middle of the fire they started with no way out. ButContinue reading “What’s Going On”


Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thomas Jefferson wrote that and if anyone was in a position of power for the United States, it was him. Power comes in many forms. There is the physical power of athletes who spend hours each day lifting weights and getting bigger and (hopefully) more powerful. Actors and actressesContinue reading “Power”


Here we go again. The global spotlight shines brightly once again on the United States as we stumble all over ourselves and try to find a solution to our growing population. It is not the normal 6% population increase of which I speak. We get there just by waking up in the morning. No, itContinue reading “NIMBY”

Making Magic

I was a good chef. Scratch that; I was a very good chef. Like all good chefs, I had my faults. I drank too much. I worked too hard. I ate the worst foods at the worst times. I had a short temper. I was tough on my staff. Although my talent and accumulated skillContinue reading “Making Magic”

As Charged

I am terrible at trying to hide guilt. My blogpost The Great Recess Caper of 1961 is proof of that. I would love to be able to claim some sort of far-reaching conspiracy for the legal “issues” I have endured, but the truth of the matter is that I was a dumbass doing dumbass thingsContinue reading “As Charged”
