Battleship! (Updated)

You’ve played battleship, right? Aircraft carriers are today’s battleships, and we’re all in the game, trying to guess where they are.

Earlier this month—the 5th of April, a day before we struck Syria—I questioned reports saying an American aircraft carrier was on its way to strike North Korea. People were getting worked up: some were […]

Wednesday Bag o’ Ooga-Booga

If we keep funding Social Security and Medicare at present levels, America will be broke in eight years. So said a Republican congressman on NPR. It’s ooga-booga, no different than stirring up poor whites with lies about inner-city blacks coming for their women.

You know how Republicans always say we shouldn’t enact new programs without […]

Hearts & Minds? I’ll Settle for Behavior.

President Truman ordered the integration of the military in 1948. It didn’t happen overnight, but by 1953 and the end of the Korean War it was reality.

Sunday Bag o’ Bullet Points

Thoughts on the past two day’s events, not terribly organized but somewhat connected:

If you’re going to remember anything Donald Trump ever said, remember what he said during the GOP debate on March 3, 2016:

He hit my hands. Nobody has ever hit my hands. I’ve never heard of this one. Look at those hands, […]

But Her Emails …

Remember, remember! The 8th of November, Putin and Comey did plot; I know of no reason Why the Grizzly Steppe treason Should ever be forgot!

Wednesday Bag o’ Tweets

I’ve always looked on Trump’s tweets as his way of blowing off steam, a window to a childish, vindictive soul. Maybe he’ll follow through on his threats once he’s president, maybe not. But a lot of prominent people, in and out of the media, take his tweets seriously. […]
