Liars and lunatics are poisoning America!

Back when Dennis Miller was still funny and relevant, he had a Friday night TV show with an ending segment that was a total rip-off of Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update. As the set up to a targeted segment, Dennis would exclaim, “Now, I don’t want to get off on a rant here, but…” Then he would dive into a diatribe on whatever or whomever he wanted to rip into a thousand pieces.

Miller’s show took place in the time before we had social media to promote the feelings, thoughts and aberrations of millions of knuckleheads from Toledo to Timbuktu. These days, any jackass with a mouse and internet connection can tell me what they think about an entire list of subjects they are totally unqualified to discuss. TikTok has given any Tom, Dick or Harry the ability to gather a following, but there are more dicks than tiks these days, and I hate that.

Well, I can play too, so let me add to the fetid, gaseous air of the internet and get a few things off my hairy chest. First, I do not give a fuck about Hunter Biden, his stupid laptop or the fact he’s related to the President of the United States. He’s just another “silver spooned” elitist lacking a moral compass. If he broke the law, he should do the time. I find it humorous that Republicans, those gun-loving, NRA sycophants, want to lock up Hunter on a gun charge. But hey, drug addicts shouldn’t own guns so they need to shut up and pass a law to prevent it – really prevent it.

Next, why are media outlets giving Robert F. Kennedy Jr. any exposure? Why are conservatives and self-serving grifters fighting to keep him and his poison on social media? Unless they are ready to strike down what is known as Section 230, they need to shut the fuck up. RFK Jr. is not a Democrat, he’s a demigod who is just as corrupt as his grandfather and the Irish mafia of rich, first-generation millionaires who believed they knew what was best for America. If it were up to Joe Kennedy, we’d all be speaking German. Stop RFK Jr. and his dangerous, deranged opinions! Covid-19 was not a weapon, it was a fucking virus. Kennedy’s arguments are as weak and distorted as the output of his vocal cords.

The Village Idiot

On June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy, Sr. was shot by Sirhan Sirhan at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California and pronounced dead the following day. The fact that RFK Jr. doesn’t believe Sirhan Sirhan shot his father is lunacy. We all can see it on film. Sure, the assassin was a Palestinian Jordanian man and he had his demented causes, but there is no doubt he was the killer. But let’s not be too hard on RFK Jr. It’s well known the family of Martin Luther King, Jr. believes the government, especially the FBI, was involved in the murder of the civil rights leader. Never proven, hardly documented, and really, will this bullshit ever stop?

The idea that we are in separate tribes is utterly primitive and unproductive, and neo-dolts like Ron DeSantis are making matters worse. When confronted with the new policies of his state-run Department of Education, Ronnie said he wasn’t involved. What a coward and dimwit. He was the motivation behind that plan and he signed the bills.

He and others running against Donald Trump refuse to say why the ex-president he would be bad for our country. They are the same folks who believe God has sent them to cure America of all its ills, perversions and ideological missteps. FACT: They are not affiliated with God or any of his workers. 

According to the myth, God first created the supreme archangel followed by other archangels. One of them decided to take on God, and then we had the devil. And the book that brought us the devil was also used to justify white people stealing black people from Africa and demand they work for free.

SLAVERY was a way for the right people, you know the white people, to become more successful, but they had to deal with the “lower intellects” by telling them what to believe and whom to follow. How can someone, like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. complain about people calling him a racist or antisemite when he has no clue about the definitions of those words?

I was inspired when Sinéad O’Connor performed on Saturday Night Live in 1992 and told us the real enemy was the Pope for covering up sex abuse in the Catholic Church. Ripping up his picture on live television was a powerful and courageous statement. She told the truth about the abuses of the church and its priests and how they were covered up by men in power. By the way, those are the same men who keep woman in their places. Women can still not be priests, even today.

The white men in Congress and state governments who rail against Critical Race Theory and what we teach about slavery claim they are protecting kids from assuming any blame for what happened in this country for more than two-hundred and forty years. Americans commonly believe slavery took place from 1776 to 1865, but it actually began in North America in 1619. Here’s a question we should be asking people like Senator Tom Cotton, Governor DeSantis and other store-bought racists, “How are you protecting kids who aren’t white, or straight, or Christian?” They will not have an answer. They are protecting only their children.

Disruption is a disturbance or problem which interrupts an event, activity, or process, typically not a good thing. Some view the January 6th attack on Congress not as an insurrection but just a trifling disruption. People like Josh Hawley and Matt Gaetz think of themselves as disruptors and reformers, but they and their kind are nothing but evil, scum bacteria, infecting people with attempts to normalize unamerican activities. It’s time we stop denying the holocaust, slavery, 9-11, January 6th and the value of vaccines. We must focus on making America better.

I’ll close with a little tip to all the election deniers. If Donald Trump won the 2020 election, why the fuck did he leave Washington? If he really believed he was re-elected, why didn’t he order the military to surround the White House and protect what was “rightfully” his? He’s a chicken-shit loser and no one in the army would have come. Here’s the real reason he left; HE KNEW HE LOST. What a fucked-up person!


Tattoo Detective: Our Last Hope for the Future

Imagine being able to time travel into the unknown. TATTOO DETECTIVE: Our Last Hope for the Future is a science fiction novel examining the world after all the guardrails of normal society have been dissolved.

The story follows two American tattoo detectives who are sent on a mission that changes them and their world. This dystopic look at the United States and the flaw in humankind is not a Pollyanna prognostication, it’s fundamentally close to our current reality and could be predictive of where we are headed. The opening chapter says it best, “…we could have done something, but we fell madly in love with technology, weapons and wealth.”  For purchase or dowload, go here.

The Divide Between Aware and Unaware 

I just came back from a tour of four western states. Yes, it was a vacation, but driving over 900 miles opened my eyes to some things about this country. Besides the native Americans living in abject poverty on valueless deserts and plains, we saw the rich ski lodges of the Rocky Mountains and the challenge of military families forced to live in underserved small towns. We have a lot to cheer about in this country, including the purple mountain majesty and a thing called democracy. I saw the bumper stickers reminding me that “freedom is not free,” and wondered what that actually means. Democracy gives us a say but freedom doesn’t mean we can do any damn thing we want. We have a responsibility to not intrude on the freedom of others.

I read the “My body my choice” signs held high at the anti-mask rallies by the same women who will be screaming against liberal women holding the same sign at Pro Choice rallies. The Covid-19 global pandemic has taught a lot, and now we know that Covid-19 can kill children. If Johnny doesn’t wear a mask it places Suzy at risk. Sean Penn, the actor and pro second amendment guy, says not wearing a mask is the same as pointing a gun at another. Covid-19 has the potential to hurt, sicken or kill our students and we must deal with this reality.

I am starting to think that the division in America is not political but a chasm between “aware” and “unaware” people. It’s all too easy to put a person down without understanding their personal knowledge base. Consider this. I hold a hammer and ask the person standing next to me to put their hands on the table. They quickly pull back, thinking I want to hit their hands with the hammer and knowing how badly that would hurt. Over our lifetimes, we have gained knowledge of hammers and hot stoves and we automatically avoid them. Those people screaming “enough is enough” at school board meetings claiming that little Bobby shouldn’t have to wear a mask are asking for the hammer to come down on their hands. They are unaware of what Covid-19 can do because they haven’t taken the time to understand it.

While the Sarasota school board here in Florida was debating mandatory mask requirements for students, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a law forbidding mask mandates in public places, schools and businesses. The rich irony of those who carry signs that say “We Don’t Co-Parent with the Government” is they don’t realize that the government is telling them what they CANNOT DO. It’s the exact same kind of powerful government overreach they are protesting. Why are these folks helping the government be more powerful and overbearing in their lives? Do they derive pleasure from the pain of the hammer?

The early figures from our school district here on the west coast of Florida are disturbing. In the first week of class, 166 staff members and 683 students tested positive for Covid-19. 69 staff members and 1,421 students were required to quarantine after contact with an infected person. Governor DeSantis forced the Florida Department of Health to slow the release of coronavirus data. What was he thinking? Oh, yeah, he wasn’t thinking. He even admitted during a press conference a week ago that a once- weekly release of Covid statistics was not in the public interest. I guess he did it to underscore his authority.

We’ve had a long history of the term “anti-American” activities. Donald Trump was quick to use the trope against anyone who disagreed with him or his policies. Any chance that the Donald could be a good president was dashed by his inability to see beyond his beliefs. He has a strange isolationist strategy. If you like him, he likes you and he gives, but if you are not a hundred percent with him then you are his enemy. Baby-Trump DeSantis has threatened to cut off education funding and the salaries of those who teach our children if they vote in mask mandates for their schools and students. He’s being anti-American by saying the state government should control local governments and school boards. Ron DeSantis is a vindictive son-of-a-bitch.

I heard lots of complainers on my trip. The conversations were anti-this or anti-that. Biden messed up Afghanistan, I don’t want my kids to wear a mask. One father demanded his kids be home schooled because the elementary school had a mask mandate. Another guy whined about bad roads and, in the same paragraph, said he was against the infrastructure bill because Biden was robbing the people. Being against something seems to be more popular than taking the time to be aware, to investigate and understand what is really going on. It’s so much more fun to be against something. Americans became more “anti” over the last four years because they were taught that being a complainer, a putdown artist and an outrageous personality wasn’t a disorder; it was a valuable attribute. Yes, it’s Donald Trump’s fault. Sorry to complain.

Motoring over stretches of barren land last week, it dawned on me that we Americans waste so much time on insipid conversations, unimportant social media rants, likes and dislikes that we no longer have awareness of what we are doing and what is happening all around us. We are melting our planet with emissions, burning our forests with raging fires, and creating strange weather pattens that will wash away our homelands. Did we want another whack of the hammer so badly that we elected a climate change denier?

We stood down and took foolish advice from a craven lunatic instead of fighting the pandemic. We should have shut things down and started wearing masks at the very beginning. Sadly, we had no one to lead us, no one to cheerlead us to victory. We simply had an unaware anti-American in the White House.

And those deeply loyal Republicans in power, who cling to a fantasy that things were oh so good with President 45, are just as much part of the problem. They, too, are anti-American. When Rand Paul claims that masks do nothing, I wonder what he would say if a doctor about to operate on him refused to scrub up and wear a mask. About 20% of us are anti-science, anti-mask and anti-vaccine. “I don’t trust anything from the government” may be an interesting bumper sticker, but we will tread on you if you stand in the way of our kids’ safety and health. You can be a drunken driver in your backyard, but as soon as you take your vehicle to the road you are on GOVERNMENT LAND. Follow the rules.


We knew that the great divide in America would have a major effect on the presidential election in the year 2020, but something else was lurking that we didn’t anticipate. The world suffered a global pandemic of Covid-19, and everything changed. The lockdown motivated one author to write MASHED POTATOES: Covid, Cancer & Comfort Food. The cover ironically claims the book is a “humorous” recollection of 2020, but one might ask, “Where was the humor?” This is a work of survival to motivate those who desire to get beyond Covid-19, beat cancer and defend our precious Democracy.  The world got Covid, the writer got cancer and we all ate copious amounts of comfort food. It’s time to swallow the truth, survive the madness, take a large spoon and savor some delicious MASHED POTATOES. Get some here.
