Okay, that whole Russia thing, that Immigration thing and that DAPL thing, yeah they are all bad things - terrible things - but Ladies and Gentlemen - My Fellow Americans, here's The Real Thing, The Actionable Thing! The Impeachment Thing! EMOLUMENTS DONNIE, You're Soaking in 'em! Please click, listen, sing along and share my new … Continue reading IMPEACH (TRUMP) -The Song
I thought W was absolutely impeachable. It seemed a no-brainer. Despite the documented war crimes and bloody, deliberate murder of hundreds of thousands of Soldiers and Civilians, despite what seemed a national consensus, I was shocked by how many politicians (including many so called Democrats) prevented that from happening. I wrote "Impeach" many years ago for W and … Continue reading Trumpeachment Time Already?
My favorite Desperados are no longer out riding fences but somewhere more abstract - more raw - between the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel and the Green Frog Cafe. I have no extra time this week to write my complete thoughts here but Warren Zevon left a mark on me - several marks. There are several decent online resources that … Continue reading Warren Zevon Lived

These are the same bright bulbs that had projected a HRC victory up until very late on … Continue reading Making America Hard Again
First and foremost, Congratulations Governor! I hope everyone will welcome Doug aboard and register for his upcoming Inauguration! I just caught your video statement about "legally" completing #DAPL replete with a confident bluster only a Custer could muster. Based on your own North Dakota Department of Health data, it appears you will be very busy plugging hundreds … Continue reading Hey DAPL Doug – Check Your Oil!
