Can Yankee Doodle Trump Cheez Doodle?

Dear America, If I had a time machine, I’d go back to Boston and Philadelphia in 1775 and 1776 (I would bring bug spray. I’d also be wearing pants and sneakers and I would totally show Ben Franklin my no line progressive lenses in my glasses and tell him… “This is all you, my man.” […]

People Throughout History Have Always Sucked

(It doesn’t enlarge. Fuck technology. Here’s the guys in the tree:) Forgive me if the above image is hard to see. I hope it will enlarge for you, but let me tell you… my server and the WordPress media uploader are assholes and losers. I made a bump out in the original photo to the […]

Dear Fucking America

There are two tweets I wrote that I think I ought to leave here, instead of expanding on them, today, because I am going to say a lot of shit that maybe I mean, but maybe I should be more careful on how I say it… But also, fuck you, America. Fuck you, fuck me, […]

Schools Are the New Economy

Hey, dearest America, why do you think the Orange Motherfucker is so into schools being open? First, he wants your kids to be orphans, but smart orphans? Yeah, no, bullshit, you know as well as I do that the guy pretending to be a human pretending to be president doesn’t give two shits about your […]

It’s Neither Here Nor There

Not really, for me, America. I would have voted for a pair of old gym socks and a used condom over Trump and Pence, so I’m okay with Biden and Harris. I’m not thrilled, but I wasn’t about Hillary either. Still, y’know. I would have voted for old gym socks and a used condom then, […]

I Grew Up in New Hampshire and This Post Officially Makes Me a Pinko

Dearest America, I’ve been poking around of various travel forums and it’s interesting. Actually, it’s always eye opening. I’m always taken aback when I hear about how litter free the United States is from people in Europe, and I’m always really taken aback when I hear about how litter free over and above that Boston […]

Dear USointoelderAbuse,

Dear America, I am going to admit something really uncomfortable. In some ways, I really can relate to the Orange Guy in the Oval Office. I bet I would like the meatloaf at the White House. I’m unsteady on my feet. I make way less sense when I talk than when I write (I doubt […]

Dear America

I was led to believe there would be punch and pie. I’m not the only one. I was led to believe there would be punch and pie, and not just for those who showed up, because ultimately,¬†everyone would show up in the sense that they were able. I was led to believe that people had […]

The Good Old Days and Other Bullshit

Four years ago I saw a person with a bumpersticker that said “Hindsight 2020” and I thought, yeah, pretty much. I also remember the first Trump/Pence bumpersticker I saw on a car. It was parked a few cars down from us at the parking garage in Chinatown. We were there for the Taiwan 10/10 day […]

Time Is Linear, History Is Cyclical

And we are all dumbasses. I’ve seen, more than a few times in the past two years or so, someone say, “If you ever wondered what the people in 1930s-era Berlin were thinking, now you know” or the variation of this: “If you ever wondered what you would have done then, it’s exactly what you […]
