It was created to solve a problem that didn’t exist, and now the very existence of the Electoral College creates a bigger problem — giving power to losers.
Sure the rooms were $350 a night, and we could only get a room up the stairs with a “street view,” and the restaurants were closed, and no barbecues on the beach, and there was no food or booze service on the beach. But it came with a “free mask.”
Remember when “Up talking” was just for teenage girls and gay men? Those were the fucking days.
Since I quit my job in Tucson, I’ve had my fill of fiction.
Here’s a message I thought I could stand up and salute… or at least a part of me could.
Protestors, rioters, terrorists… seem to be the media’s choice for naming the fools who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 and might be planning more attacks this week.
Cops and prosecutors arrest and charge them as trespassers and assaulters and say they participated in “disorderly conduct.”
But all that’s bullshit.
It was the first or second day of school the first year I was teaching 8th grade when “Bradley” tried to blow the ceiling off the classroom with what could have been the world’s loudest and longest fart.
I used to think only Banana Republics prosecuted and imprisoned politicians who lost.
But we need to make an exception for the Orange Republican.
No matter what happens tonight on election night, it’s just the beginning.
I came out of the closet carrying a fairly new, perfectly good hat. But I will never wear that shit again.
When Trump got the Covid, way too many fucking people “wished” him well.
No good deed goes unpunished. No well-intentioned wish doesn’t fuck up the universe — again.
My whole life I’ve been told how fair I am — fair skinned that is.
Now that shit is unacceptable and the PC police have been attacking “fair” skin for being unfair.
Michelle Obama said she has “low-grade depression” due to covid-19. Who the fuck doesn’t? But it got me thinking — if even men get postpartum depression what the hell happens to every first family when the POTUS high is over.
It’s a tragedy every time a police officer is injured or killed. But it shouldn’t be an excuse for shooting first and asking questions later.
Every year in the United States about 100 cops are killed in the line of duty. Half are accidents, the other half is murder. Cops kill about 1000 people a year. About 25 times more than people kills cops.
I like cops. I once tried to help control a riot — we needed the cops to restore order. I will forever be grateful for their presence that day. My father wrote a book on the history of modern police. (Sorry it’s out of print).
But cops and the entire criminal justice system need to change.
