About Me

I'm an old professor, having taught at the university level in Louisiana for over 30 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetrythough many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

"With enemas like you, who needs friends?" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I lost my hamster") Trump is saying: "Listen, no one loves the First Amendment more than me. . . . It's like one of my children, . . or my beautiful wife. . . . But if the media becomes an enemy of the people, I'd be derelict in my duties if I didn't declare war on it, right? . . . Imagine what Sean Spicer could do with a couple grenades in the briefing room! . . . But don't get me wrong, I love freedom of speech."


Above CAPTION based on the following 2/17/17 Trump tweet:

"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

"Where do you get off asking questions at a press conference?" Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("I'd evict my grandmother") Trump is saying "Okay, before we get started I've got one thing to announce: . . . Those CAPTIONing clowns at Democratic Underground will never be able to top what you're about to hear. . . . Not in a hundred-million years! . . . Okay, first question . . . ?"

"I once sued my mother." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("Loose lips think trips") "Listen closely, numbn*ts. . . . contacting Russia means nothing, zero, zip, nothing over nothing in no time, got it? Even if I was discovered to have personally coordinated Russian hacking and subsequently negotiated the transfer of the material to WikiLeaks . . . . Absolute, nothing!. . . The square root of minus impossible one! . . . I mean who cares? . . . . But for the low-life, ground hugging, sniveling back-stabbing miscreants who leaked this information, they should get the death-penalty and public executions! . . . . You have to keep things in perspective."


Above CAPTION based on the following Huffington Post story:


"I practice speaking with a mouth full of t*rds." . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Spicer!!!

Sean ("Poke me in the soft spot") Spicer is saying: "Listen. Let's get this straight. . . . Let's lay it all out. . . . Number one: we're not certain it was the Russians who did the hacking of the DNC in the first place. . . . And even if it was the Russians, we don't know they were trying to sway the elections for President Trump. . . . And even if we believe the Trump haters who claim Russia was trying to sway the election our way (and remember, members of these 17 agencies were staffed by the Obama administration), we don't know of any proof of contacts between the Trump team and Russians. . . . And even if the leaked so-called proof of multiple contacts between Trump's people and the Russians proves to be the case, which we very highly, most strongly doubt, that doesn't mean there was any collusion concerning leaked materials or the up-coming the election . . . . Surely even you can see that's a lot to swallow!!! . . . Hell, they could have been talking about a future beauty pageant . . . or Putin's handicap."

Each one is thinking:

"I'm not like the rest of these Bozos. . . . What a bunch of clowns! . . . Two-bit con artists and tinmen true believers. . . No real brains. . . . You gotta think hard and make some real plans! . . . Why, by this time next summer, I'll be running this place, and with it the world!!! . . . They'll never get nothing on me!"

"Gun safety is for wimps!" . . . Please come CAPTION Michael Flynn!!!

Michael ("Flatulence is my person protection device") Flynn is saying: "Listen, Numbn*ts, just how the hell is it lying to tell the Vice President something he wants to hear? . . . . You got something against the Vice President? . . . Just who are you working for anyway? . . . Maybe someone should be investigating you? . . . Next question."

"You're going to be so happy you'll wet yourselves." . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

Presidented Donald (Gold-Heart) Trump is saying: "I tried to blow out my brains once, but the bullet passed right on through."

"Mussolini was a w*nker!" Please coem CAPTION Stephen Miller!!!

Stephen ("Munitions") Miller is saying: "Listen, George, I'm not comparing him to God. . . . I'd never do that. . . . For one thing President Trump is far smarter than God. . . . It isn't even close."

The wheels seem to becoming off the cart and the cart headed toward the abyss.

Is everything coming to a head?

Will Priebus be with Trump in a week's time?

Will Trump be in office this time next month?

After eight days like the last, both are doubtful.

And it's this ban which seems to be the accelerant of the disaster that is known as Trump.


This morning, I'm more optimistic, despite the subject line.

"After all, a fleet of armed drones is just as good as a wall." (DT)

This is what his wall is going to come to, at least in his mind. I predict he'll start pushing something like this i days.

I doubt if he'll ever get Congress to go along with the "armed" part.

What do you think?
