But first, did you know that during the civil war, union wives back home would scrape their linens for lint then send that lint to the front lines to be used as bandages? Nuts. “As a nation, we began by declaring that 'all men are created equal.' We now practically read it 'all men are... Continue Reading →
Another quick one today... this intro is probably a bit hackneyed at this point. The first song of the day is some good old easy listening: it's Classical Gas by Mason Williams. Fun little ditty! The next song takes a bit of a turn but I absolutely love it: it's Super Freaky Girl by Nicki... Continue Reading →
This is insanity. What a joke. Go read the Wikipedia for Viktor. Then read it for Brittney. Actually don’t, I’ll tell you her claim to fame: it’s basketball, she plays basketball. Who’s watching Lord of War tonight?
No? None? Not yet? How much will it cost to get Eminem or the Island Boys to go on a live, nationally broadcasted fundraiser for the victims? How much to get him/them to go off script and proclaim “Handsy Joe doesn’t care about white people”? I’m just asking questions. Man. #followthemoney #dontforgethunterslaptop

Shit. I’m a month and a half late here but so are the people who posted the advertisement far below. I hope that all of you wished President Trump a happy birthday back in June. Sort of a “golden birthday” in the sense that it’s the second birthday of his second term. I dedicate today’s... Continue Reading →
A lot of people know that 15th President James Buchanan likely had a gay sex relationship (do they still call it that?) with 13th Vice President William R. King. They lived together for something like 10 years while in D.C. But did you know that Andrew Jackson routinely referred to them as “Miss Nancy” and... Continue Reading →
The Republican Party has Jeff “Skunk” Baxter: Trump had John Bolton: Sean Connery had this crawling up his body: Meanwhile Joe Biden has Jake Sullivan, from Burlington Vermont: I think my point is pretty clear.
I can’t be more clear that this is not at all what “she” said. Definitely didn’t say this. Separately, I appreciated this sticker of Uncle Joe at the pump. It’s not at all accurate or reflective of the pricing mechanics of a globalized, highly standardized commodity that is freely traded in a market economy but... Continue Reading →
