03/01/24 “Marching” into chaos

I’ll hold off on “sinister” for now.  But it’s certainly suspicious at best. I’m talking about the motives and timing of the Supreme Court’s decision to take up Trump’s appeal of two lower courts’ rulings that former presidents do not have immunity from prosecution for crimes they may have committed while in office. First the […]

02/26/24 That’s not a “portal.” It’s the Twilight Zone. Chances for improvement? Almost “NIL.”

College football’s rosy cheeks are flush with money. The game’s family looks healthy. But the appearance hides a systemic—and life-threatening—illness. The sport has never been more popular or more lucrative. Media contracts continue to inflate and expand, with no signs of bursting. Coaches have become corporations, complete with CEO-size compensation packages. Players enjoy freedom from […]

02/23/24 (All together now) “How dumb is he?” He’s so dumb that…

Tommy Tuberville is dumb. All together now: “How dumb is he?” Tommy Tuberville is so dumb that he says he supports the Alabama Supreme Court ruling that frozen embryos are children because, “That means more babies will be born. And we need more babies.” No, Dunce. It means far fewer babies will be born. OK, […]

02/21/24 You, sir, are no Navalny.

Trump finally and tepidly praises Navalny, but makes no mention of the murderous dictator who caused his death. Are you maybe starting to snap to what’s going on here? Returning Trump to the White House would relegate the United States to the status of a Russian satellite. Trump concedes that Navalny was a brave man. […]

02/21/24 It could be worse, I guess…

I’da been just fine with the CFP staying with a four-team format.  I thought it played out exactly the way it should have this past season. I maintain the Committee got the four teams right and seeded them in the proper order.  The Committee’s charge was to identify the four best teams at the time […]

02/17/24 Let’s sing “The ‘No’ Song”!

No. Just hell no: Hell no, Trump’s deliberate attempt to inflate the value of his assets was not a “victimless crime.” You can stop that nonsense right here and right now. Trump dishonestly and illegally obtained lower rates from lenders by lying about his worth. That defrauded banks from earning interest to which they were […]

02/16/24 That impeachment thing? Not so fast.

Oh, that Joe Biden impeachment inquiry brewing in the House? Never mind, at least for now.  Special Counsel David Weiss Thursday charged former FBI informant Alexander Smirnov with lying. The 43-year old Smirnov has alleged that Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, benefitted from clandestine business dealings with a Ukrainian energy company. Smirnov is charged […]

02/16/24 This is why we can’t have nice things.

I’m angry. We are a gun-worshiping culture that has perfected the perverse art of taking the beautiful and making it ugly. We take our kids to a wonderful Super Bowl championship parade and this happens. And then we wonder why so many of them struggle. We are a sick, gun-worshiping culture. Guns are our god. […]

02/14/24 Strange Days Indeed

Wonder if Vegas actually posts an over/under on how long Mike Johnson will be Speaker of the House. If so, bet the under. Lay the points. NFL in this case stands for “Not For Long.” Johnson faced the media Wednesday morning to make a run at damage control and attempt to move the focus off […]

02/13/24 I yield to Mr. Serling.

Isn’t a resolution to all of Trump’s (91) legal issues before November necessary for voters to make an informed decision?  Trump says he’s trying to protect his First Amendment rights and freedoms. I say he and his legal lackies are trying to trample on ours. Do you ever feel that our culture has traversed deep […]
