Let the Games begin! As a nation, the United States (yes, all the states) of America (the continent we share with Canada and Central America), we have hit rock bottom — or very close to it. Here are the Headlines: Kavanaugh (a.k.a. “the Trigger”); Democrats take Midterms; and 2020 goes to . . . the Democratic nominee, of course. Social movements against Trump are NOW … Continue reading Rock Bottom
Representative (now Senator) Chuck Grassley called my mother when I was 18 years old. Why?

I saw something exceptional yesterday. Not since I was in Switzerland — on my way to Unterwasser — have I seen an all-white, male, middle-aged road crew. And I saw it in New Jersey, no less — not just New Jersey, but the Plainfields. North Plainfield, Plainfield, and Watchung are divided by Highway 22. It’s hard to find the bridge over the highway that … Continue reading Chris Christie’s Revenge – Angry White Males without their Doughnuts
