Pree-Vent Dee-Fense

I thought we settled this issue back in the 1960s. Athletes don’t give up their Constitutional rights when they sign a contract. They retain ALL their rights, including the right to free speech, and taking a knee is free speech, whether you like it or not. Refusing to serve in an unpopular, un-winnable war on the grounds of religious pacifism––even if you make your living as a professional boxer––is free speech. And calling NFL players sons of bitches is free speech, too, so let’s have more trump. This is how the Republican Party destroys itself, with angry, hateful, divisive, obscene words. A few years ago, I was at a motor speedway standing in line at the refreshment stand outside the tr

The Republican Money Tree

We hear that “wealthy donors” are the evil forces behind the Republican push to kill Obamacare because the GOP promised them tax cuts as part of the deal. Who are the “Wealthy Donors” who support the Republican party? Here’s a list that you can check out in detail at: 11 Richest Super Pac Donors. Harold Simmons Sheldon Adelson Peter Thiel Julian Robertson Foster Friess Frank VanderSloot Bob Perry William J. Dore Paul Singer Bill and Richard Marriott

Rockin’ Rocket Man

It’s up to the United Nations to stop Kim Jong Un’s nuclear ambitions. Trump can’t do it. He’s not a leader and the real world leaders know it. The U.N. membership will have to work together to solve the N. Korea problem without the United States’ help. Trump is a blowhard, a blusterer, a bully without the muscle. Meanwhile, keep your heads down, Japan. I’m reminded of a line from one of the all time great movies that explains the threats in the nuclear age. “It seems Tokyo has no defenses.” The movie? Godzilla.

No Mo No Ko

We’re at the point now, after many years of bullshit from North Korea, where we have to fish or cut bait. Kimmie Junkyard Un, or “Rocket Man” if you prefer, is not going to give up his nukes. We have three choices; to try to bomb him back to the Stone Age and hope he doesn’t respond by bombing Seoul back to the Stone Age. Or we sit down with him and acknowledge his country is a legitimate nuclear power in the world as we have done with Pakistan. Or, we finally convince the UN, an organization that can’t get out of its own way, to truly isolate NoKo until it’s starved into submission. To seal the UN deal, all we need is a NoKo rocket to miss it’s target and kill hundreds of Japanese pre-scho

Pass The Pills

I went to the drugstore to buy a box of Claritin-D 24. I can’t say I’m miserable during allergy season, but my runny nose is annoying. The pharmacist asked me if I would like the generic version of Claritin which was less than half the price. She said it was the same drug with the same effects. “Why the difference in cost?” I asked, knowing the answer. “They don’t advertise,” she said. Years ago, I took Lipitor for high cholesterol (it runs in the family) and then I switched to a generic drug that does the same thing for $2.00 per month out of my pocket. Why so cheap? Again, they don’t advertise. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that my cartoon exaggerates (what editorial cartoon doesn’t?)

A Bracelet For Hillary

Taylor Swift pressed sexual assault charges against DJ David Mueller who groped her at a photo shoot. That in itself is not remarkable unless you know that most women are groped and they don’t fight back. They take the blame for it because, well, they’re women. In the trial, Swift was aggressive and straightforward in her testimony. She said after the trial, "I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long tr

Deal With the Devil

Watching trump parley (The term written as "parlay" on the Pirata Codex was known as a right in the Code of the Pirate Brethren, set down by Morgan and Bartholomew, that allowed any person to invoke temporary protection and brought before the captain to "negotiate" without being attacked until the parley is complete) with the Democrats through the White House window, I felt like an intruder. I should’ve been invited in. After all, trump works for me. He’s not my president, but he is my employee and frankly, his six month review was horrible, possibly the worst ever. I gave Pres. George W. Bush a bad review every six months for eight years, but the negative comments about his performance were

Hurricanes Blow

The water temperature off the coast of Florida is 88 degrees. Is that normal? It never gets much above 70 degrees in Long Island Sound, so 88 seems like bath water to me. It must be even warmer near the equator and that’s the kind of thing that adds force to hurricanes. I’m not a climatologist but I don’t need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing, as the song goes. It seems to me that a little common sense is in order here. We all agree. Nobody has the right to foul another person’s air, whether it’s a country or a guy eating dinner at the next table in a restaurant. That’s one of the reasons we have a non-smoking society now. How about a non-polluting society? We nee

DACA Caca

This is, of course, another one of trump’s brilliant ploys to keep his hypocritical hater posse, his base, happy. How do you keep a bunch of racist, frightened, ignorant so-called “good Christians” happy? Give them something while giving them nothing. The fake president sets up the termination of DACA so he can blame congress for killing it or keeping it, whatever they decide. Take the wall. It’s not trump’s fault the United States Congress won’t approve it. He wants it. He promised the American people he’d build it. What happened? Congress happened. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program? The fake president said he’d end it. He wants to end it but he’s giving Congress six months
