True confession: I was shocked by the results of the 2020 Presidential election. Shocked because it was so close. Shocked that so many Americans voted for a man who is immoral, incompetent, racist, sexist, and — in my opinion — mentally ill.

Yes, Joe Biden received 81 million votes — the most any Presidential candidate has ever gotten. But Trump received 74 million votes — the second most votes any Presidential candidate has ever gotten, and 11 million more votes than he received in 2016. (Source: Associated Press, as of Dec 15, 2020)

The Associated Press follows the results on…


While President Trump has always wanted to be a King, it is now apparent that he is the Mad Queen. You know the one I mean: the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland.

The Mad Queen of Hearts

But let’s start at the beginning of this chapter.

To start with, The Associated Press is not an arm of the government. Just because this press service declared Joe Biden to be President-Elect doesn’t mean anything, Constitutionally-Speaking. Not even if you add ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox News.

Our Constitution specifies how this is determined, and readers may be surprised to learn that if Trump defies…

“Come and Take It”

This is how I think the 2020 election will go: Biden will win by a landslide, a landslide that is obvious to pro-Trump and anti-Trump voters alike on election night, and that will be the end of it. Trump may bluster, Trump may posture, but he will actually be focused on drafting his “I am pardoning myself” speech. And packing his bags to leave the country.

Very few people agree with me. Whether on the Left or on the Right, activists are working themselves into a lather…

If you are a member of the police force, if you are a member of the National Guard, if you work in a sheriff’s office or a military base — at the end of the day, all you want to do is go home and take your shoes off.

And the next day, when you are working, you would like to have an easy day. You don’t want to have to break up a domestic dispute, you don’t want to worry about someone you’re approaching having a gun, you don’t want to have an angry protestor screaming in your face.

Trump sign, backed by flag that shows an AR-15, and says “Come and Take it.”
Trump sign, backed by flag that shows an AR-15, and says “Come and Take it.”

What are we to think of “Trump’s Army.” Is this army something like Hitler’s Brownshirts? Or is it a motley crew of Proud Boys who like to play dress up and carry guns? Or is it a figment of Trump’s imagination?

If you are a worried Democrat, and you would like to scare yourself silly, you should read Trump’s email appeal from this summer. It reads:

“Friend,

“This email is FOR PATRIOTS ONLY.

You’ve been identified as one of President Trump’s fiercest and most loyal defenders, and according to your donor file, you’d make an excellent addition to the Trump…


THIS IS A HOAX

COVID-19 I mean. Everyone who isn’t being deluded by the mainstream media knows it’s a hoax.

So how are we to take the news that President Trump has tested positive for coronavirus? Obviously it’s a hoax.

But who is playing this hoax on the American people? I know, and I think those of you who are “in the know” know. Our President is executing a brilliant maneuver.

President Trump realizes that he cannot win the election fair and square. The Deep State won’t let him win. [This is a hoax.]

He also realizes that there are…

As an idealist and a liberal, this is the world I would like to see:

The countries of the world unite to combat Global Warming. We address global and regional health challenges. We continue the upward path in combating hunger and pull our fellow humans out of poverty. We avoid war. We strengthen democracy and the rule of law throughout the world. We successfully end racism and dampen the violence born of ethnic and national rivalries. Women everywhere achieve…


“As long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance.”

Chuck Prince, CEO of Citibank, quoted in Financial Times, July 9, 2007

How can the US Government get away with creating trillions of dollars from thin air? And why do they want to do this?

The short answer seems to be that our economy is like a game of musical chairs. Everyone stays in the game as long as the music keeps playing and everyone keeps marching around the chairs.

Now — just as a thought exercise: We Will Stop the Music.

[Warning: don’t try this in real life because the economy will collapse.]

Now — you have to find…

This meme needs no caption at this time

Long before a “meme” was a picture of a cat dangling on a clothes line with the caption Hang in There, a “meme” was an underutilized word that simply meant “idea” or “concept.” A powerful new meme can change a culture, it can change political decisions; it can change the world.

Here’s a good one: The World Is Round. Think of the revolutionary effect this has had upon human thought and activity.

And here is a meme that is working toward full cultural acceptance in the United States, but has very little consequence: A Man Can Wear an Earring and…
