Find Yourself a Nephew

 

A little over 18 years ago, my sister called me up with an extremely strange request. She asked me if I wanted to go watch my six-year-old nephew play T-ball. No, who in their right mind would want to drive an hour to watch six-yea- olds play that? That was the response that was in […]

From Fidel to Obama — The Torch Passes

 

The “saddening” death of Fidel Castro has given me an incredible idea. It’s a little out there but I really believe that it could work. Many people I know right now are suffering, including family members and friends. Unlike liberals who enjoy seeing conservatives bloodied, beaten and embarrassed, I do not have hateful viciousness in […]

Sitting Shiva for Hillary and Her Permanent Mourners

 

When a person dies of disease or old age, it’s obviously horrific for family and friends. But, for the most part, they did know that it was coming, and hopefully they were able to prepare themselves a little bit for their future loss. Now, when someone dies unexpectedly, there is probably nothing harder for a […]

Hillary at Thanksgiving

 

Over the past few days I have asked a few friends what they think life is like for Hillary Clinton right now. Of course this is a hypothetical question, since they don’t know, but it is sort of an interesting idea to let your mind wander and wonder what life is like inside Casa Clinton; […]

Dear Democrats: Just Keep It Up

 

The Democratic Party is broken, beaten down, shell-shocked, and scratching its heads wondering what went wrong. So, I have decided, being the noble American that I am, to offer some aid and comfort, not to the enemy, but to my fellow Americans as well as some friendly suggestions on how they can rebuild their party […]

Steve Bannon Is a What?

 

Steve Bannon is a white nationalist. Anderson Cooper touched me in the gym one time. Wolf Blitzer is an actual wolf, it’s true, I heard it from an ex-staffer’s best friend’s brother’s uncle who used to work next door to the building that is next door to CNN. Martha Raddatz was an extra in the […]

Trump Trumps Hate

 

For the past seven, and almost done eight years, we have been mocked, shamed and trolled, and that’s just by the President. We have been told we are racists for not agreeing, homophobes for asking. We have been assaulted on every form of media from old to new. My friends on the left, you think […]

We All Have a Little Bit of Trump in Us

 

I have always been a wonderer, often about the mundane and the trivial and the real, but always a wonderer. What did Chivas Regal do its first 12 years, why did private men’s bathrooms have a stall and a toilet, why don’t all men’s bathrooms have partitions? If I adopted a highway, could I choose […]

Is Megyn Must-See TV?

 

For years, in the early to late ’90s, NBC ruled Thursday nights with a monstrous three-show lineup known as “must-see” TV. It was Friends, followed by garbage, then Seinfeld, followed by garbage, then of course ER followed by, well, I’ll let you decide what the 11 o’clock news was. You could have put mimes playing […]

One Life, One Vote

 

We all get one vote. Not just in elections but in life. How we act, how we treat others, what television programs we watch, who and what we find attractive, what music we listen to, do we buy the more expensive piece of meat, what airline we fly, and what seat we want to sit […]
