“During the resulting chat with host Steve Doocy, the president repeatedly and lavishly praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, with whom he met earlier this week, remarking: “He’s the head of a country—and I mean he’s the strong head. He speaks and his people sit up in attention. I want my people to do the same.” At other parts of the interview, Trump referred to FBI leadership as “scum,” denied rumors his wife Melania underwent facelift surgery, and suggested…

Time to Wake Up, Folks

Time to Wake Up, Folks

There is a saying, where there is no law, there is a lawyer and where there is a law, there is a lawyer. Get It? We have a three branch government and the reason for that, from my understanding as a citizen, is so each branch of the government checks the other branch to make sure that no one group has complete power over activities in the United States. At least that’s what I remember from my high school civics…

The Double Standard

The Double Standard

So an interesting story today. Samantha Bee called the little Trumpette, Ivanka, a cunt, a phrase generally used by Trump Monkey himself for all of those women he dislikes. I am amazed at how much news coverage this incident has received yet so little about the pussy-grabbing, racist asshole who occupies the highest office in the land. To me, the shows a lack of common sense or concerns about the state of the Union. We truly have gone to hell…

The Turn Indicator

Why is this a part of newly-manufactured vehicles? No-one seems to know how to use them anyway. It is a reflection of a mindset most in this society seem to have. If it does not immediately affect me, I won’t bother with it. Most are not aware that the little things DO affect them. If they took the time to think about the larger picture, many things would change but that rarely happens. Simple things make the complexity of life….

Shifting dominant ideology

Shifting dominant ideology

Unaware and Unexpected While in college, we had a black widow spider in a gallon glass jar on our desk. We would feed her crickets and one day, we decided to watch as the spider ate her meal. Much to our surprise, and unexpectedly, the widow came slowly from the top of the jar down to the cricket, tossed a silk lasso around one of its legs. The cricket did not move, unaware of the impending danger. She repeated this…

Hide The Protestors

Hide The Protestors

The latest NFL decision follows the typical dominant group bullshit rules to hide the protestors by making them stay in the locker room defeats the whole reason to protest: to let others see the disagreements and maybe, just maybe, ask why they are in disagreement. Moving toward a Fascist system includes suppressing disagreement of any kind and hiding the protest is a form of suppression. Protesters during GW’s “reign” were sequestered inside a fenced area miles from the entourage. Not…

Bubbaville and “Loyalty” One thing has always been a mystery to me. The three stooges in this house have a rebel flag flying and a pro-TrumpMonkey sign in the yard as if he would give any of them the time of Day much less associate with them. So, why the loyalty to a rich–although not Super wealthy–1-percenter? Sadly, the answer is about permissions. His very presence in the highest office of the land gives them and other racist, sexist rednecks…

Education or Profit?

Education or Profit?

Introduction The free market economy has redefined education. Once upon a time, in a world far, far away, one without neoliberal capitalism and a market economy, a person could get a real education. Whether it was an undergraduate degree or a doctoral degree, it reflected a person’s ability to contribute to a field of study with significant research and to develop programs that could improve the state of affairs. Education was considered a state of mind, a lifelong learning process….

Major on the minors and minor on the majors:The American Way (sadly)

The news channel has spent fifteen minutes focused on the fatalities from airboat accidents. Less than a dozen in the last three years! They stressed the urgent need for regulation in the industry. Really! This is important need to the average citizen how?! Wow! How about an in-depth discussion of stricter regulation in prescription drugs, something that negatively impacts the lives of millions of people?! Quit focusing on trivia and get serious about critical issues. All this nonsense does is…
